“A Great Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2006

Our second visit to Atlantic Ark Inn was as pleasant as the frist time. We stay in our own beautiful cabin with views of the bay. The great amenities, gourment breakfast and the hospitality by the propietor Donna made us feel at home. We hope to be back next year to celebrate our 50TH.

P.S. Walking distance to most parts of the harbor is a big plus.

After doing research on where to go in the mid-coast Maine, we settled on Boothbay Harbor and the Atlantic Ark Inn. When we arrived and found the B&B across from the "Cap-n-Fish" Hotel and Parking lot we wondered how folks who reviewed this considered this near the ocean or Harbor. The web site considered this a "serene" B&B and we opted for the best room in the house with all the windows and "views" as others had posted. We were very disappointed in that the ark is on the main street and that the traffic continued into late in the evening with the street noise of cars covering up any "sounds of the sea" as the promotional info states. Things got quiet after the bars closed and didn't start up until around 6AM. As for views, we overlooked parking lots, businesses, and other hotels....not an ideal location by the sea. Inside the Inn is comfortable and fair but not the best B&B we have stayed in so we would encourage others to temper their expectations of this location.

What a delight! My husband and I were fortunate enough to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary at the Atlantic Ark Inn in Boothbay Harbor in the extra special room "Bliss". The thirteen windows, oceanview, private balcony and two person jacuzzi was a dream come true! Also, the special touches of fresh flowers, bed turndown with cookies, cheese and crackers in the afternoon and a wonderful breakfast each morning added to the pleasures of this romantic place. The Cottage would also be a very romantic spot for a getaway. Don't miss this bed and breakfast!!

My wife and I have stayed in more B&Bs than I can remember along the Middle Atlantic Coast, and this is our favorite. Boothbay Harbour is a gorgeous little town, and Donna, the Innkeeper, knows it well. She is a charming and gracious host (not to mention an excellent cook).We have stayed at several B&Bs that are not "kid-friendly." The Atlantic Arc has a small cottage in the back where parents can stay with their children.When we arrived at the Atlantic Ark Inn, we were greeted warmly, handed a glass of wine, and sent for a walk along the coast, with directions to the local memorial to fishermen who were lost at sea. It was the perfect ending to a long day of driving, and a wonderful introduction to what has become our favorite Maine town.Donna recommended several restaurants (one an upscale restaurant, another a seafood house popular with the local residents, the others typical for a small tourist town), and we were never disappointed.My only disappointment is that the Atlantic Ark is a ten-hour drive for us, so we don't get to visit as often as we would like.
