    Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Heron Seaside Inn Boothbay Harbor

    An exceptional find

    from

    We have stayed in B&B's from Europe to Carmel, CA. The Blue Heron was an excetional find for us. Phil and Laurie made us feel as if we were staying with friends. Phil even offered to take me fishing. The 1800's Victorian is a gem top to bottom, large rooms, all with a great view, and central to everything in Boothbay. The Chapman's are natives to Boothbay. We had the two bedroom suite for four. We will return. PS- do the Cabbage Island clam bake!!! --------------

    Top of the List

    from

    My wife and I have been going to the Boothbay Harbor Region on romantic get aways for 30 years. This year we tried a new Inn called Blue Heron Seaside Inn. A good name because we saw blue herons right outside our room's beautiful veiw of the harbor. Phil and his lovely wife Laurie have opened their lives in this meticulously run Inn. We felt welcome and at home with our hosts. The rooms are filled with antiques from their long stays in Korea and England. The Inn is as clean as any 5 star hotel, with extraordinary attention to details. Absolutely charming and elegant! With the natural beauty of the harbor, and the great resturants, this frist class Inn is destined to became another jewel in the Harbor's crown. It has now jumped to the top of our list of places to stay next time we visit. Lonn & Pauline

    Exceeded our Expectations

    from

    The Blue Heron Seaside Inn was meticulously clean and decorated beautifully. We were on the 1st floor and still had a great view and our own private access to a deck that overlooked the harbor. Our hosts, the Chapmans, were delightful people who were more than happy to answer any questions we had about the area. The continental breakfast was more than we expected. All in all, our stay there was wonderful and we can't wait to go back in the fall.

    A Memorable Overnight

    from

    Only a short walk from the center of town, this quaint Inn has a scenic ocean view and clean beautiful decorated rooms with an Old English flair. Laurie makes your stay at the Blue Heron Seaside Inn memorable and anxious for a return visit to Boothbay Harbor.

    Blue Heron a Real Pleasure

    from

    Very nice accommodation, close to the town center. Nice furnishings, spacious room. Hosts are delightful.

    Lovely room with beautiful view

    from

    Spent 1 night on way back from Bar Harbor in the beautiful Blue Heron Inn. Our room was on the top floor with a breathtaking view of the harbor. Completely furnished for every convenience including fireplace. Plenty of room to relax and private seating on back porched area to view harbor. Superior B&B

    Perfect B&B Stay in Boothbay Harbor

    from

    My family and I have been to Maine many times but this was our first visit to Boothbay Harbor. The Blue Heron Seaside Inn was the finest B&B we have been to in Maine. We had taken one of our children, and when we arrived, Laura and Phil immediately upgraded us to the third floor two bedroom suite, without our asking, because they thought we would be more comfortable. The room was beautifully appointed, the king sized beds very comfortable, and the room was equipped with refrigerator, microwave, and two tv's, not to mention the wonderful view from the comfortable patio furniture overlooking the harbor. We also had a chance to see some of the other rooms, most having king sized beds, and also beautifully appointed, which we would find very comfortable, on our next visit to Boothbay Harbor. I had done a lot of research on B&B's in the Boothbay Harbor region utilizing Trip Advisor as one of my main sources, and found this place to be ideal, with the proprietors, the location, the view, the breakfast, and mainly the comfort, while away from home, being outstanding.

    We had a great weekend at the Blue Heron Seaside

    from

    A first class B&B, in a great location, just a short walk to "downtown" Boothbay Harbor. Our 2nd floor room (#3) was large, well appointed, and very attractive. Innkeepers Phil and Laura are very friendly and helpful, with good advice regarding tourist attractions and local restaurants. We plan on returning soon.

    Outstanding!!

    from

    What a refreshing and enjoyable experience! My wife and I frequently travel to Maine. The variety of lodging experience has been fair to excellent. The Blue Heron Seaside Inn rates an excellent. Beautifully appointed rooms with great harbor views located a two minute walk to the center of town with ample parking and surprising quiet are all pluses to us!! The innkeepers are attentive yet unobtrusive. They are both native to the area, have world-travel experience (just look at the antiques adorning the inn), and are committed to making your stay "the way you'd like it"!! Give it a try--you will not be disappointed.

    Blue Heron Seaside Inn is First Rate

    from

    My husband and I personally looked in on several hotels and inns in Boothbay Harbor before settling on the Blue Heron Seaside Inn - so we can tell you with certainty that it is a truly exceptional B&B! The Inn, and the rooms are uniquely and beautifully decorated -- and in such PRISTINE condition -- that we were sure that we were the first ones in. Later we learned that Laura and Phil have been doing business from this wonderful waterfront location (built in the 1800's), for some time. They are wonderful people, with unusually high standards -- and have incorporated many thoughtful features into each room, to make your stay more comfortable. The Blue Heron Inn is light and airy, and absolutely spotless. We knew from the moment we walked past the beautiful garden and in the front door that we were "home." A top B&B! Katie

    ... Stopped for lunch at a delightful little local cafe. An Aviation Tour Company was along our way and offered biplane tours. One of the things on Ben's bucket list was to ride in a biplane. We stopped and Ben and Rob took a flight in the biplane over the Acadia Park. They had a blast! Our next stop was the park. We drove up Cadillac Mountain which hosts the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard and the first place to ...

    With no destination set and no timeline determined, we decide to head no further than an hour or so from the RV repair facility in the event they can fix the problem within the next couple of days. We take advantage of the local Chamber of Commerce’s free pamphlets and WI-FI and consider that perhaps Boothbay Harbor as our next best destination. Also, Casey has called a reliable friend, Laura from work, who ...

They were enjoying testing the staff on historical knowledge of Freeport (not very good I hear lol) but the staff and patrons had a bigger laugh at them – they couldn’t call their wives to stay for another drink because the only technology the 2 old ***** had was a broken watch and an old fashioned camera.

    ... amazing. They are smoked overnight before being grilled. Thinking we're going to have to invest in a smoker because they were absolutely the best I've ever had.

    Spent the evening at the campfire with our best friends – beer, rum, banok, syrup, jagermeister and powdered sugar. Tonight we added a new friend – cinnamon. Another great night and cause for more snoring in the camper. ...
