When we arrived to check in we were greeted by the Innkeeper with freshly baked cookies and an assortment of hot chocolates, spiced cider and coffee. Kristie (the...

Came up with my boyfriend for New Years Eve and loved this B&B. The room was clean and very nice with great garden and ocean views. The owner Kristie was welcoming, and the complementary breakfast was delicious. Kristie was able to give us great recommendations for local restaurants and attractions. Free snacks and coffee provided in the afternoon as well!...

Our overnight at Harbor House was lovely. We had a little suite with a livingroom where 6 good friends gathered. Incredible view of water from our room. Comfy bed and a super breakfast in morning.

I booked a room at the Harbor House Inn last minute after getting tickets to the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden Lights Aglow event. The Inn was beautifully decorated for the holidays and sits atop a small hill near the downtown Boothbay. The Inn is very charming but not super updated. I love and have an appreciation for older B&Bs like...

My daughter and I spent a lovely 2 nights here on a weekend mid-October. The weather was awful - but Kristie, the Innkeeper, had lots of suggestions as to how we could spend our time and where we could eat lunch or dinner.
