We contacted Sarah by phone to ask if she was willing to help us out and allow us to have the two night minimum waived and put us up for one night. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary and wanted a halfway point to our final destination which was a private cottage up in Prospect Harbor. We were pleased when...

The Tipsy Butler owner manages every day to astonish us with her enormous and delicious breakfasts. She is also attentive to all needs and the rooms in this mid-19th century Greek Revival house are luxurious and comfortable. i encourage all to stay here

Sarah greeted us warmly when we arrived. She then told us she'd like to upgrade our room. Goodness. Everything was just about as perfect as it could be--we relaxed and felt at home right away, the room was heavenly, the food was excellent, the location was fabulous and we could easily walk to town and to wonderful restaurants. Such amazing...

Very charming & inviting bedroom. Clean, well decorated & each room is lovely with it's own personality. All that you need for a comfortable stay. Enjoyed Sarah & all our conversations. She works very hard to make you feel right "at home!" Loved Damariscotta! Exterior does need improved "curb appeal" but The Tipsy Butler is a fine place to stay....

Everything a B&B should be. Oh, I just loved this place! It started when I was terribly lost and late on arrival night. Somewhere up (down?) the coast of Maine, I got a phone call from a warm English-accented mother hen wondering if I was alright. In fact, I'd been on the verge of tears, but she talked me in...

We had a wonderful stay with Sarah at The Tipsy Butler in the autumn. We loved Damariscotta and mid-Maine - both the coast and the woods are absolutely beautiful (see photos) - and hope very much to return. We were fortunate enough to be the only guests staying at the B & B as it was the very end of...

I've been visiting Newcastle/Damariscotta all of my life. I wish I'd discovered the Tipsy Butler earlier. Sarah is an innkeepers innkeeper. Our family of five "moved in," and Sarah met us at every level of our need. She was warm and friendly with our "children," 19, 21, and 23. She fed us well, with unique and delicious breakfasts. She was...

We have been regular campers in the area, and were looking for a place to stay instead of camping. The Tipsy Butler ended up being a wonderful choice, within short walking distance to Damariscotta, yet away from the hustle and bustle that occurs in town during summer. Sarah was so attentive and helpful, going far beyond what we have experienced...

It was a dark and stormy night in Mid-Coast Maine. Lightening was flashing, thunder booming, rain coming down in sheets. The couple drove slowly up the quiet lane seeing the large, old house for the first time. As they noticed the warm, welcoming glow of the light in the windows a movement caught their eye--was it the ghost of legend,...

The Tipsy Butler is in a decent location. The strip of Rt 1 B on the Damariscotta River has everything you need for a decent weekend away. Several decent pubs, kayaking, several bakeries and a small amount of shopping are all within walking distance. Sarah is a great hostess and will definitely do whatever she can to make your stay...

“Choose the Maid's Room if you have one other person travelling with you because there is a small but charming twin bed single room attached to the Maid's Room with a Jack and Jill bathroom. My husband and I put our teen aged son in there. It was glorious.”

“The Cook's room is the smallest but cozy, while the Maid's Room looked gorgeous. Sarah recommended the Butler's Room for our next stay, also spacious (like the Maid's) and beautiful.”
