About
Description
Imagine waking up with the blissful feeling your room resembles a Maine cottage overlooking a picturesque bay. Here we enjoy quiet mornings on the porch watching lobster boats bobbing in the bay. Yet a short More five minute drive puts you in the middle of Boothbay Harbor with windjammers, trips to Monhegan Island, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, lobster eating, galleries, shopping and our #1 rated Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. 15 of our 16 rooms have an ocean view, all have air conditioning, private en-suite bath and 5 have a fireplace. Your stay includes complimentary Wi-Fi, full buffet breakfast served in front of the fireplace or on our porch overlooking the bay and afternoon tea with homemade cookies. The Inn is known for its warmth, comfort, gourmet breakfasts and spectacular views. Our guests come often, and stay awhile. Join us, and recapture some of the graciousness of grand days gone by. Less
