Top 10 Coastal Maine Inns and B&Bs: Rocktide Inn
Our No. 9 pick may not be the first coastal Maine inn to hail from scenic Boothbay Harbor, but it does offer some of the most spectacular views of this beloved body of water! We simply can’t imagine a finer location for your coastal Maine vacation than surrounded by Rocktide Inn’s cozy accommodations and the sea’s calming presence.
If the friendly faces of Boothbay Harbor residents are any indication, warm welcomes come standard in coastal Maine. Rocktide’s innkeepers are eager to share whimsical touches like museum-worthy model ships and a miniature train that winds its way around the inn’s dining room. But don’t waste all your time holed up in the comfort of this coastal Maine inn! Outside, boat tours depart straight from the inn’s docks, while historic trolley rides take you into the heart of Boothbay’s shops, galleries and quaint charm.
On the rocks may have once been a grim reality for shipwrecked fisherman, but the On the Rocks lounge comes with none of the same negative connotations. Playful thatched roofs are the only hints of deserted islands you’ll find inside this sleek lounge space. And we certainly can’t fault you if every breakfast, lunch and dinner finds you stranded inside Rocktide Restaurant’s elegant dining space. After all, we had our fair share of Rocktide Inn’s tender roast beef, juicy steaks and fresh seafood dishes during our stay!
