Topside Inn offers a unique variety of stylish, comfortable, in-town lodging in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Accommodations are spread among the historic Main House and two summer guesthouses named Windward and Leeward. The diversity of these buildings means that there’s something for everyone – from large and luxurious rooms with “laying-in-bed” views of the ocean, to more modest spaces with scenic views from the sitting porch.
Our hilltop location offers something that you won’t find in area hotels. Surrounded on three sides by water, it is all about the view, and you’ll find one in every room: from glimpses of the inner harbor and famous footbridge, to broad stunning views southward overlooking the islands and out to sea across two lighthouses, over to the western cove and sunset.
All guestrooms include private in-suite baths, cable TV, complimentary wireless Internet, refrigerators, bath amenities, plush towels, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards. Bedding includes crisp sheets, plenty of pillows, and extra blankets on the closet shelf for cool nights. Special features are listed in each room’s details on the reservation system, so if you are concerned about stairs, look for those specifics when you check availability.
It’s true, some of our rooms don’t have air conditioning. We hardly ever need it, with normal summer highs in the upper 70s and lows in the 50s, and our spot at the top of the hill attracting an almost constant sea breeze. Some of our returning guests would never consider using it when here, regardless of the weather. But to keep stride with the needs for some guests, Windward rooms (#8 – #17) have air conditioning! All rooms have fans to help circulate the ocean air. And yes, all guestrooms do have heat.
