Set in the charming seaside village of Boothbay Harbor Topside Inn is the epitome of relaxation at the top of Mckown Hill. The hill is the highest point in town and the inn's views of Boothbay Harbor are easily the most spectacular. Though you are a few minute walk from all Boothbay Harbor has to offer, once you climb the hill and step onto the property you feel like you've left the world behind and you are in a peaceful retreat far from the hustle and bustle of town.  Topside Inn was originally built in the 19th-century as a sea captain's home. Today, it's one of the best Boothbay Harbor Hotels with 20 elegant guest rooms and water views at every turn. Stay in the actual home or choose a room from one of the inn's two summer guesthouses, the Windward and Leeward.

Boothbay Harbor is one of the best Maine seacoast destinations. This charming coastal village has no shortage of beautiful lighthouses, hiking trails, scenic outlooks, fresh seafood, and an array of unique shops and art galleries. Topside Inn is just steps from the town's best restaurants and shops. If you're not sure what to do while in Boothbay Harbor, the inn has a concierge available to help you pick the best activities.

Food & Wine

When you stay at the Topside Inn, one of the best parts of your day will be our unique breakfast. Every dish is crafted from fresh local ingredients, many of which we find each week at the Boothbay Farmer's Market. You will start with our continental spread consisting of homemade granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, homemade breads, butters, jams, and other homemade baked goodies. Other offerings may include creative deviled eggs, house-cured salmon, and mini frittatas. You will want to save room for the entree which is cooked to order. Whether a sweet or savory dish you will be delighted by Buzz and Mark's creativity and culinary skills.
