The Views

Our Boothbay Harbor bed and breakfast is located on over four beautiful acres, and exceptional views greet you in every direction: the sunrise and the footbridge across the inner harbor to the east, the lighthouses and islands to the south, and the gorgeous sunset to the west. Our front lawn, surrounded by perennial gardens, provides a prime vantage point to observe harbor activity during the day and the stars and flickering boat lights at night.

“Over-the-Top” Breakfasts

Part of what makes us one of the best Boothbay Harbor inns is that we serve delicious breakfasts each morning. Wake up and help yourself to rich, local coffee or tea, fresh fruit, homemade granola, yogurt, baked goods, cereals, and delicious, cooked-to-order entrees. Many of the breakfast items are featured in our new cookbook Over Easy & Over the Top, Recipes From the Kitchen of Topside Inn. Start your day slow and leisurely, or grab a quick bite on your way out. Either way, you can count on having a memorable meal to fuel your Midcoast Maine adventures.

Meet Your Hosts

Hello, from the owners of the Topside Inn, Brian “Buzz” Makarewicz and Mark Osborn, who were just named Hospitality Maine’s “Innkeepers of the Year” for 2020! From the time we got together, we knew we wanted to have an inn somewhere in the world. Little did we know, we would end up buying one in the town where Mark grew up visiting with his family, and Buzz had a vacation home. We have thoroughly enjoyed transforming Topside Inn into the perfect haven for relaxation, and we always look forward to welcoming guests to enjoy it all.
