Our first time in Maine…and so happy that our neighbor recommended Topside Inn. We were absolutly BLOWN AWAY!!! Mark and Buzz do it 5 star. We were there for 3 nights, first night was in Room 3 in the main house and the next 2 nights in room 11 in the Winward Guest House. Everything was absolutely amazing. The rooms were spectacular. The decor and the views were just amazing. They have thought about every detail, from lighting to the most comfortable sheets, to wine selection in the room. Service was second to none. Rebekah was EXCEPTIONAL from the communication prior to arrival to everything we needed during our stay and made us feel very special. She is LEGENDARY! This review is not complete without mentioning the AMAZING food. It is to die for! Never tasted anything like it. Nothing like having the most beautiful and delicious Seafood and Cheese board sitting in the front yard while watching the sunset. Mark and Buzz are definitly creative with their gourmet breakfast choices each morning. YUMMY!!! This is the ULTIMATE B&B experience. We are planning to go back in 2022 and we just can’t wait.– Chesand, TripAdvisor
A Destination in Itself!
This brilliant small hotel is worth a trip to Boothbay Harbor by itself. In fact, the view or possibly the breakfast alone might be worth a trip! We’ve travelled through the US and Europe and our preference for small hotels has increased over the course of our journeys. This is one of the BEST! The staff, the interior design, the bar and food are all simply excellent. Elegant but very welcoming. We will hope to return!– LightPacker, TripAdvisor
“We really loved everything about this B&B! The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Amazing place with a wonderful view! A nice place to see the sunset of Boothbay Harbor. Cozy and beautiful room. The breakfast was delicious! We really want to go back again!!!” – cozzgc, TripAdvisor
“Terrific B&B that perfectly balances cozy inn atmosphere, but not stuffy or too “traditional”. Mark and Buzz were so welcoming and helpful. We had a room in the Windward house and LOVED the couch seat on the back deck with view of the harbor! Location is super – short walk to town…room was comfortable and clean….main house was v” – Kevin H, Facebook
“Mark and Buzz provide simply the cleanest, most welcoming, most relaxing inn in the entire Boothbay Region! The views from the “Top of the Hill” are breathtaking! The inn is located above the fray of Boothbay Harbor, but within walking distance (the hill IS a steep climb) of all the sights and sounds of this iconic New England fishin” – Don373, TripAdvisor
Summary of visit.
“From the moment of our arrival, our party of three was warmly greeted by owners Mark and Buzz, and pampered by them and their staff for our stay of three days. In a very short time, we became aware of the charm of Topside Inn and the beauty of the area. My daughter, the family photographer, was delighted by the abundance of ever chan” – Teresa924, TripAdvisor
Can’t wait to return.
“This place will not disappoint. The location and views are beyond stunning. I love the clean nautical look and decor (not fussy and outdated like other BNBs on the Maine coast). Comfortable room and Buzz/Mark are just the best. I cannot wait to return in the summer some day and drink in the view on those adorable beach chairs on the ” – Hagerte1, TripAdvisor
Amazing Place to Stay.
“We can’t say enough good things about our stay at Topside Inn. The view from our room (Room # 14) was amazing! I would have to say the best at the Inn. We had two walls of windows overlooking the bay, and a little private outside patio…where we were able to have some wine and watch the sunset. The owners are so nice and helpful….” – Judy B, TripAdvisor
The decor is amazing.
“We really enjoyed staying at place. The decor is so contemporary and clean. We staed in a corner room facing the bay and the view was unbelievable day and night. Although the the room was small the amenities made a big difference: small porch overlooking bay, little fridge, iron, and plenty of room to put clothes. Best of all was the” – Beth W, TripAdvisor
The Perfect Fall Getaway.
“We so very much enjoyed our stay at Topside Inn. From the moment we walked in we were greated by Mark the owner/innkeeper. He was so welcoming and showed us all around the beautiful home and property. The room we chose was perfect for us. We stayed on the top floor in the main house. Which I thought had an amazing view of the Harbor.” – Xin L, TripAdvisor
Amazing New England hospitality and a gem in a serene setting.
“The Topside Inn was highly recommended by a friend who stayed there before, and I am so happy that I chose this place as the last stop during my first trip to New England, after a few days of foliage exploration through the other 5 states. The setting was absolutely peaceful and serene, my sister and I stayed in room 15 and 16, we lo” – Teresa N, TripAdvisor
The Topside -The Inn on The Hill.
“A terrific place to get away. Every person who walks in the door is made to feel important. Everything is well decorated. Extra care is taken to accommodate any need to make it a pleasant visit.The grounds are beautifully kept. I thought it was wonderful to have a real key to a door to your room. No fighting a card trying to get in. ” – Karen C, TripAdvisor
Another fantastic stay at the Topside Inn.
“We have been coming here every October for years, and once again, the updates and changes to the Inn are just fabulous. We stayed in the Leeward section of the property and the raised ceiling in our room, along with the fantastic new bed, made for an even more comfortable stay. Mark and Buzz are always so welcoming and the breakfasts” – Brock T, Facebook
Very clean, cozy, pleasant staff, great breakfast and amazing view.

Fall Colors – October 2015.
“The Topside Inn was amazing! We traveled with 2 other couples and had a great time here. The breakfast meals were wonderful! Attention to detail is what they do best – they didn’t miss a thing! The location was great, walking distance to town and the views were beautiful. I couldn’t give one comment of what they could do to improve” – Christy s, TripAdvisor
Topside B is a treat.
“We recently stayed at Topside and had a great experience from the time we arrived to the time we left. Beautiful views, lovely room. The owners Mark and Brian (and friend Tim) made us feel so welcome and breakfast was amazing. Boothbay is a place worth visiting, we will be back.” – Diana H, TripAdvisor
This was our Lobster, Lighthouse and Leaves trip.

It is a short walk to town. Breath taking views. Breakfast was eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and lobster hollandaise sauce. My husband dislikes a”
