Set atop McKown Hill at the highest point in town, this 19th-century sea captain’s home is joined by two classic summer guesthouses to offer stylish, comfortable lodging just steps from a charming coastal village you won’t soon forget. Join us for incredible panoramic views of scenic Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and discover New England bed and breakfast hospitality.
Considered by many to be the best bed and breakfast in Boothbay Harbor, Topside Inn’s 20 guest rooms are spread among three buildings, situated just steps from each other on two acres. Water views greet you in every direction – sunrise and the famous footbridge across inner harbor to the east, the lighthouses and islands and out to sea to the south, and the western sunset. Our front lawn provides a grandstand seat to observe harbor activity throughout the day and the lights of the sky at night. See what are people are saying about us right with our latest guest reviews.
A delicious full breakfast is always included in your stay to start the day: help yourself to great Maine roasted coffee or tea, fresh fruit, amazing homemade granola, yogurt, baked goods, cereals, and savor a different hot entree special served from the kitchen each morning. Start your day slow and leisurely, or grab a quick bite on your way to an early sail. Visit our blog in the lower right corner to see our latest locally inspired offerings.
Boothbay Harbor is a classic Maine seacoast vacation destination. Enjoy Topside Inn’s convenient in-town location, just a one-minute walk to restaurants, shops, and art galleries in the waterfront coastal village. On the water, boat excursions depart at the foot of the hill for bird and whale watching, sightseeing, lighthouse tours, schooner sails, fishing, kayaking and more. On land, the spectacular beauty of the peninsula awaits on the Land Trust hiking trails, at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, or just around the next turn on a seaside country road.
