We stayed at Brown's Wharf visiting relatives over the summer. The property is pretty dated, especially considering the rate they are getting. The setting is nice but the rooms need a serous update -- new carpet, wall treatments and linens -- we are guessing everything is over 20 years old. The wifi stinks and the sidewalks are not easy to...

Been to Boothbay Harbor 10 times, stayed at Brown's the last 8. You cannot beat the view from any room. This is a working fishing harbor as well as a base for many luxury boats, particularly sailboats. There is always something going on to fascinate us midwesterners. Every room has a balcony for sitting practically hanging over the water, with...

My mother and sisters did a New England coast trip and the Browns Wharf was our first stop. None of the other small towns or local hotels came close to the warmth of this place. We traveled in August and the grounds were beautiful groomed. The hanging baskets made it seem like the porch of an old friend. The rooms...

Brown's Wharf Inn is a true gem of Boothbay Harbor. This was our first stay. We have booked for 2017. The accessible room we had was spacious and very clean. Coffee and a muffin in the morning and cocktails in the evening. On the balcony. Overlooking the ocean. Magic. From the reception/registration desk to the dining room to the clean...

This place was awesome! Clean accommodating and right on the water. They have a great restaurant on site. Also have a trolley that takes you into town and very friendly atmosphere. We loved our stay here. We will be back next year!

This was our first trip to Maine and we actually stayed there twice in the same week. We loved the area around Boothbay and the foot bridge across the bay made it an easy walk from Brown's Wharf to all the shops, restaurants, and lobster wharfs. The restaurant was very good for both breakfast and dinner and has both inside...

This is my favorite hotel / restaurant in Booth Bay Harbor, Maine. We discovered this place during our last trip to Maine 4 years ago and had it on our "must go back" list for this trip to Maine. The place has been owned by the same family (the Browns) since sometime in the late 1940's or early 1950's. The...
