Topside Inn in Boothbay Harbor, MEA classic Maine seacoast home built in 1840, the large front porch welcomes you to the Main House at our B&B. Offering views across the lawn, above Boothbay Harbor, and into the sea beyond, the Main House was originally the family home of Cyrus and Mary McKown and their five children, and remained in the family until 1930. The current innkeepers are only the fifth owners!

Inside the front door are common areas used by all guests. The main hall includes the reception desk, along with a wall of information about local activities: walking maps, event flyers, schedules for boat excursions, and brochures from local shops and galleries are easy to access at any time. A comfortable living room is in front, and the serving room in back starts serving at breakfast, and is used throughout the day for ice, snacks, tea and barware. The dining room along the western side offers great views of morning light across the harbor and evening sunsets.

Also on the main floor is Room 1, a large king-bed room with two leather lounge chairs and ottomans nestled into the front window bay. The only first-floor guest room in the Main House is big on space, comfort, and style, and it is perfect for those looking for accommodations with fewer stairs and can sacrifice a little on privacy.

Upstairs, the second floor contains three of Topside Inn’s best and most popular guest rooms. Room 2 at the rear overlooks the village and the famous footbridge that stretches across the inner harbor. Rooms 3 and 4 at the front have magnificent views of the harbor and ocean, along with extra-large bathrooms.

The third floor hall features a small sitting area in the double dormer, providing a breathtaking panorama of Boothbay Harbor from the very top of the house. Rooms 6 and 7 each have their own dormered window seat with stunning views.
