We spent a week at this lovely inn with our daughter. One night we had #1 and #2 - Captains and Skippers and the rest was in #12 Seaside. Both great options if a third person was involved. Location was wonderful and was a VERY easy walk into town. Enjoyed sitting on the back lawn watching the tides come and go. Don't be discourage if your first view if low tide (no water out front), the tide will be in soon and the view will be beautiful!!! Great breakfast and friendly people!

We spent 2 days at the Harborage and were completely pleased.Troy and Emery are a delightful young couple with a great sense of hospitality.
The Inn has terrific views of Boothbay Harbor and is within easy walking distance of everything in town.
Rooms are spacious, comfortable and tasteful. The bathroom is as spacious as any we've seen in any B&B.
Breakfasts are excellent with options in case one does not eat meat.
We hadn't been in Boothbay Harbor in 6 years - but will be returning sooner rather than later and will definitely make the Harborage our Boothbay home away from home.
Solid grade of ":A":

Room Tip: There doesn't appear to be a "bad" choice. Ask for a room with a good harbor view.

Even though we are timeshare owners and could stay in the area free, we have been visiting the Harborage Inn every Memorial Day weekend for about 10 years. I'm sure you're asking "Why?" This is the most relaxing and beautiful places in Boothbay Harbor! Emery is there in the morning serving up her mouth watering, home made breakfasts and Troy can be found working around the property with a smile on his face - even when planting flowers in the rain! Even with their busy schedules they still take the time to be helpful and thoughtful all while making you feel at home. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the service is second to none. I cannot say enough wonderful things! Harborage Inn is THE place to stay in Boothbay Harbor, I'm already looking forward to next Memorial Day.

Room Tip: You will be pleased with any room so take the time to look at the pictures and read the discriptions...

A historic inn that think's it's a 4-star hotel! Truly gourmet breakfast included. Turndown service, pillow chocolates, creature comforts, 3-story porch. Rain or shine, best lodging in Boothbay Harbor!

Room Tip: Adjoining front rooms perfect for traveling with parents and teens.

We enjoyed our brief stay at the Harborage Inn as a whole, but there were two things we really wish we had known before we chose our travel dates and room.

1. We really enjoy traveling during "off-season" to avoid crowds. However, the Harborage Inn does not serve any breakfast during the off season. This was stated in the fine print, but we were not aware of it until after we made our reservation. It was very disappointing to plan on having a "Bed and Breakfast" experience without the breakfast.

2. We reserved the "Honeymoon Suite" and were quite shocked when we saw there was NO barrier between the bathroom and the bedroom--there is an opening in the wall. Essentially, you can stand by the bed and get a direct view of the toilet in the bathroom--no privacy whatsoever and no way to cover the view. We found this to be a major issue for us, there was no way to close off the bathroom for privacy! Perhaps there are couples who don't find this bothersome? It felt like going to the bathroom with another person in the same room. When someone wanted to use the bathroom, the other person had to go outside. This was something we really wished we had known before we booked the room.

Other than that, the room was very tastefully decorated and clean. The bed was much firmer than our preference, but that varies from person to person. The view was nice and we enjoyed hanging out by the water. The Innkeeper very kindly offered us suggestions on restaurants and places to see. The bathrobes are definitely lovely too!

The location of the Inn is stellar, it is very close to restaurants, shops, and other sights. We had a positive stay, but will be booking a different room if we return.

Thank you for choosing us for your stay in Boothbay Harbor. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us as a whole since this Inn has been in my family over 40 years we take great pride in maintaining a tradition of high quality. During the Value season (Off-Season when the town is very quiet) we do offer our Deluxe & Oceanfront Rooms & Suites at a heavily discounted rate ($50-$70 off of their lowest rate with breakfast). We can only offer these steep discounts without breakfast and do advertise this in multiple places on our website (Room, Breakfast, Amenitiies & Policies Pages) & the online reservation page, but I do apologize if you felt that it wasn't more explicitly clear. When we completely rebuilt the Inn in 2009 & 10 we left a small bathroom wall opening (3' by 4') to maximize the direct ocean view from all angles of this room. This is the first we have heard about a privacy issue, but we welcome all suggestions and are installing privacy blinds/shades later this week to rectify your issue for all future guests. All of our beds are brand new within the past 4 years (when our Inn was completely rebuilt new) and are of the highest quality (Sealy Posturepedic, plush medium, $1000). We try to balance our guests requests of softness and firmness with mattresses that have a pillowtop and a medium firm base. Once again we thank you for your helpful comments and overall satisfaction staying with us. We look forward to hosting you again!

I never write reviews,but I would feel guilty for not sharing this. My family chose Boothbay Harbor several years ago to meet up and enjoy time together in a beautiful place. This will be our fourth year at The Harborage Inn. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. From the moment we arrive we're pampered and remembered! It's like we're going there to visit our family! Except with better accomodations, a hot tub and food network worthy breakfasts! A MUST.

This inn is excellent. The location is perfect, right on the edge of downtown. The rooms were very quaint, breakfasts were delicious and the service staff did a great job taking care of the premises. Dawn, the caretaker was great. Upon our (late) arrival she greeted us warmly and gave us ideas for some adventures we could partake in over the course of the weekend. We would highly recommend the Harborage.
