Grounds & Hospitality


Upon arrival you'll be greeted with flowerboxes adorning the front porches, and a front lawn trimmed with a rose border reminiscent of an old New England counrty garden. The inn has two comforfortable covered front porches, where you can surround yourself with flowers and watch the village activities. 

Behind the Inn you'll find private parking and a waterfront lawn gradually slopeing to meet the water's edge, leading to a dock with kayaks, exclusively for our guests to enjoy. It's a quiet spot, in a peaceful setting, to escape and soak up the expansive harbor views, read a favorite book, or simply relax and let the world go by. The scenic tidal waterfront allows you to experience the magic of the changing tide without motor boats passing by.


It's facinating to watch the changing scenery of the inner harbor, where the ebbing tide revolves from high to low, and back to high again every twelve hours. Where numerous seabirds gather, and often a Great Blue Heron can be spotted searching for his next meal, a delight for birdwatchers.


We are offering self-service extended weekend stays only - Thursday thru Sunday (three night min)

Supplies and amenities are included for your entire stay, with in-room Keurig coffee, microwave, and refrigerator with ice. 

Ample free parking is on site, with restaurants and intown shops on both sides of us.

Complimentary use of kayaks are always available, self help.

Enjoy a private and relaxing getaway!

"Breathtaking views and gorgeous gardens. Phil and Laura are lovely hosts and their gardens are easily the most beautiful in town..."

"A wonderful stay!" "It's a fabulous seaside inn with a view that a website can't give a real sence to. They have their own little stretch of the harbor side where you can sunbath, take their complimentary kayaks, or just watch the tide come in..."

"Picture Perfect" "We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for my wife's first visit to the coast of Maine. The accomodations were beautiful, comfortable, and spacious ~~ on the water and within walking distance to all there is to do and see in town ...having two kayaks available to tour the harbor was a treat! We only regret not being able to stay longer!!!"

"Outstanding B&B with Excellent Hosts" "Highly Recommended! The Blue Heron is a perfect place to stay in Boothbay Harbor. The view is truly outstanding; the balconies are ideal for enjoying the scenic beauty of the harbor, including the blue heron that frequents the rocks just out from the shore at the B&B. Thanks Laura and Phil for a wonderful experience."
- 'David and Barbara from Arlington, Virginia
