Author: , March 30th, 2018

Topside Inn - Gay Boothbay Harbor Bed & Breakfast

With a picture-perfect location at the highest point in Boothbay Harbor, this 19th-century sea captain’s home has panoramic harbor views, seaside perennial gardens and quiet places to relax while being just steps from all that the charming town of Boothbay Harbor has to offer. The main house and our two classic summer guesthouses offer stylish, comfortable accommodations and indoor and outdoor common spaces to enjoy the view, a glass of wine or gather with other guests.

Water views greet you in every direction – sunrise and the famous footbridge across Boothbay’s 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.

Start your day with a delicious full breakfast prepared to order. We offer a different main dish each day, often featuring produce from our vegetable and herb gardens or offerings from the local farmers market. Lobster, locally harvested mushrooms, fingerling potatoes and fresh cheeses are just a few of the regions freshest ingredients that have been enjoyed by our guests. Guests can help themselves to great local coffee or tea, fresh fruit, tasty homemade granola, yogurt, baked goods, cereals, juices and more. We are happy to accommodate special requests including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.

The Boothbay Region offers much more than one might expect – we can easily fill a 3, 4 or even week long stay with plenty of activities. Boothbay Harbor is a classic Maine seacoast village and our guests enjoy the convenience of a one-minute walk to restaurants, shops, and art galleries.

There are so many ways to enjoy the water as well. Boat excursions leave from the in-town piers, whale watching, puffin and seal 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 jon winding roads to spectacular lookout points such as Pemaquid Lighthouse and Ocean Point. Breweries, wineries and farmers markets are all within an easy country drive for our foodie guests. We’ll help you find it all!

Come to the Topside Inn, and see why everyone says: WOW, WHAT A VIEW!

Chadwick B&B - Portland, Maine Gay Bed & Breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Welcome to Chadwick B&B – whether you’re coming to Maine for a long weekend, vacation, rest and relaxation, honeymoon, anniversary, or for business, our Maine bed & breakfast provides a high level of personal service, for a vacation you’ll always remember.

Your innkeeper, E Scot Fuller, his assistant innkeeper Laura McDowell, and the rest of The Chadwick B&B’s Staff take great pride in providing tastefully appointed guest rooms (each with private bath), beautiful grounds, and a five-star gourmet breakfast every morning. We can’t wait to have you experience it for yourself!

Within a short walk you’ll find Portland’s finest galleries, museums, theaters, shops, and restaurants. The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast is the perfect base for traveling to other Maine locations, including the Lakes Region of Western Maine, the rugged Acadia National Park coast, the sandy beaches of Ogunquit and Southern Maine, and even the breath-taking White Mountains of neighboring New Hampshire.

Each of our guest rooms at The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast has its own special charm – we don’t have a favorite because they all have things we love. Although the home was originally built in 1891, you’ll enjoy modern amenities from our guest room renovations in 2009.

Each room has new memory-foam beds, crisp bed linens, flatscreen cable TV with DVD player, iron/ironing boards, hairdryers, plush towels, and fresh terry cloth robes. Two of our guest rooms feature fireplaces and in the summer, each room is air-conditioned. As a special treat, guests staying in The Baxter room can enjoy spring, summer, and fall nights on their own private patio that overlooks our backyard garden.

The outdoor garden has a cast iron fire pit, and a hammock for two, as well as comfortable Adirondack chairs, and a bubbling fountain.

We serve breakfast in our charming dining room at private tables for two, or outside on the patio on warm sunny mornings. Our living room is perfect for hosting local friends and family, reading the morning paper, or borrowing a DVD from the movie library. Our business nook is available for print boarding passes or driving directions, and our rocking chairs on the front deck are perfect for reading a good book.

With just eight guests staying at The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast at a time, our common areas are great for meeting new friends, sneaking away for a little relaxation, a glass of wine, or a little romance with your partner.
