The town itself was a little more touristy than we expected, but the inn was super nice, and owners could not have been more hospitable. We especially enjoyed a local Italian restaurant, which they recommended to us, called Ports of Italy. Great views, and fantastic breakfast!

My wife and I have just returned from our second visit in the last three weeks to the Harborage Inn on the Oceanfront in Boothbay Harbor. This is the BEST place we have ever stayed in. I consider my wife and me seasoned travelers. Last year, we took 59 days to travel 12,100 miles across the U.S. We visited 31 States and stayed in hotels or National Park lodges every night. We have been on a number of cruises including the Mediterranean, the Baltic Sea, Alaska, Bermuda, and the Caribbean. So, I feel as if I am talking from experience when I say the Harborage Inn on the Oceanfront in Boothbay is the BEST hotel my wife and I have ever visited. From the time you arrive and greeted by either Innkeeper Dawn, who lives on the premises so she is there to answer any and all questions, or Inn co-owner Emery, you are made to feel incredibly welcomed. The rooms are immaculate and each is decorated as if it was done by Laura Ashley. You would want to stay in your room the entire stay if it weren't for a porch that beckons you to come out and read or watch the tide come in or out. Each morning, there is an incredible gourmet breakfast waiting for you. One morning we had Creme brule French toast, while another we had Maine picked blueberry pancakes. And, we haven't even mentioned the unbelievable sticky buns we had a third morning. Rather have yogurt and fruit? That's available, too. At some point, you might want to leave the Inn and take a two-minute walk into Boothbay Harbor. There are too many restaurants to mention but please save room for ice cream at one of the shops. And, speaking of shops, there are many gift shops, each having different items from which to choose. If you have a car, be sure to visit the coastal Maine botanical gardens. But, for us, the lure of Boothbay Harbor is the Harborage Inn. We have already made our reservations to return there next August for the Rockland, ME Lobster Festival. But, we won't be able to wait that long as we hope to return next spring.

Room Tip: The corner rooms have a panoramic view of the water. They are a bit more expensive.

The Harborage Inn is a quaint place to stay! It's beautifully tended gardens are a welcome sight. The rooms are very homey and comfortable. The staff is welcoming and attentive. From the yummy gourmet breakfast to the turn down service at night, what more could you ask for? Be sure to follow the recommendations for dinner and places you must see! They know what they are talking about! The Harborage is just a short distance away from the "downtown" area. You could not go wrong by staying at The Harborage Inn in Boothbay Harbor, Maine!

Room Tip: Any room would be considered a good room!

My husband and I just returned from this amazing Inn. I booked the honeymoon suite deciding to try Boothbay for the first time. He was reluctant to stay at an Inn because he likes his privacy. We were both pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed our time here. The room was immaculate, bright, tastefully decorated and spacious. The bed comfortable, walls very well insulated. It had a Jacuzzi tub, great a/c (it was humid), ceiling fan, gas firestove, tv, refrigerator w/ ice trays, CD/alarm clock, coffeemaker/hotpot. We liked the outside entrance, with private table/chairs on the balcony where we ate Dawn's delicious breakfasts! She was friendly and so accommodating, bringing me a cup of milk to keep in our fridge for my tea. We also enjoyed the outside hot tub and yummy cookies! We were concerned about low tide before arriving, but were glad to find it didn’t smell.We enjoyed the boats in the harbor, and restaurants /shops all a short walk. Dawn suggested the short drive to Ocean Point…Fantastic! We walked, climbed, and had a picnic on the rocks. We highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking to stay in Boothbay. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: If you want the best view of the bay, stay on the top floor. Also, room 11 is a corner room with the...

From the moment I called to make reservations, I was impressed with the customer service. When we arrived a few weeks later, I was not dissapointed. The rooms were impeccable. They thought of every detail down to the wine glasses and corkscrew in each room. The breakfast each morning was top notch, I'm salivating just writing this. It's a perfect location being just a short walk to everything downtown. This is most definitely a glowing review. The only drawback would be the "traditional" sized bed and breakfast sized room my sister and her husband had. They are still very nice, but quite small - especially the bathrooms. Loved this Inn, I would most definitely return.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the third floor for a little more room. The third floor was added recently to the...

We spent three beautiful days at the Harborage Inn this July and were delighted. The owners and staff, especially Dawn, could not have been more helpful with suggestions for seeing the sights and local restaurants. They know how to take care of their guests. And, the view was magnificent as was the location - easy walking distance to most of Boothbay Harbor. The rooms are modern and spacious with every amenity one could need - tea pot, coffee maker, fridge and freezer. The decks are great for relaxing with a glass of wine and of course the wine glasses await you in your room.

Room Tip: Room 8 on the third floor has a fantastic view. The room immediately below on the second floor is al...

Loved this Inn!! Perfect in every way! We spend a night last weekend for shopping and just relaxation! Loved it so much we have booked for 2 nights in September! Food was superb! The breakfast on the porch was absolutely wonderful! Such a nice spot to unwind and relax! The rooms are delightfully decorated, very comfortable and immaculate with bed turn down and chocolates on the pillows at night! Feels like home! Dawn, the Innkeeper is delightful and so helpful with sights to see and things to do! I would definitely recommend this Inn while staying at Boothbay!! Absolutely loved it!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor in the front and were not bothered by street noise at all. I think mo...
