This is our second visit to the Topside Inn. Our first was in August 2020 and Mark and Buzz did a fantastic job working around the pandemic. In July 2021 we came back because we were so impressed with the inn! It is even more fabulous with the easing of restrictions. The inn is beautiful, the views are fantastic and the breakfasts are absolutely incredible! The new bar is a great new touch. All of the staff are so great--always smiling and helpful. I think this will be a regular spot for our summer holidays because the experience just seems to get better and better1
My three friends & I booked rooms at Topside Inn to celebrate our 50th birthdays together. We could not have been more blown away. Location = stunning. Rooms= impeccable. Breakfasts=there are no words. Mark & Buzz= I mean really? Have there every been two people who are more perfect for B&B hosting? Having seen photos, I expected to be impressed by the view but no photo can do justice. I can't convey the serene feeling of sitting in the comfort of one the many Adirondack chairs watching the sailboats in the bay as the sun comes up as you sip your coffee from a (oh, yes) WARMED mug. I can't help you feel how relaxes you feel as you snack on the daily decadence of homemade cookies with your besties. Top ten happy places in my life. We felt so utterly cared for. So many little details. There are hooks in the rooms, where every might need a place to hang your clothes, towels etc. There are throw blankets to cozy up with as you sit by the windows and relax. I know it sounds like a small thing but other 5 star hotels never have throw blankets. One day it rained all day and the four of us took 3pm naps. Naps! Complete and utter busy parent decadence. I am not a reviewer of food so nothing I can say can explain how amazing Buzz and Mark are at providing the most delicious and stunning dishes each morning. If you are a crazy person & did not want their hot breakfast, even their toast options are homemade, as are the 3 butter options and marmalade. Most dishes come decorated with edible flowers from their garden. Rebekah, Buzz and Mark's manager is completely lovely, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She anticipated our every need, gave us only the best recommendations for dining and made us feel so welcome. Everyone needs a Rebekah in their lives. The only problem with Topside is that at some point you have to go home. Wah.…
Excellent experience from check-in through departure. Rooms very comfortable and views are outstanding. We even bought the sheets on the bed. Bekah, the GM, was fabulous when we unexpectedly had car trouble upon arrival. Worth all the plaudits.
My husband and I just returned from our first post-Covid trip and lucky for us, Topside Inn was one of our destinations while traveling through Maine. The location is not to be beat with anything and everything within walking distance and an incredible view of the harbor. I cannot think of a better way to begin the day than sitting on the front porch, coffee in hand with the most delicious breakfast you've ever tasted. All the staff are super outgoing, friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities. My only regret is that our stay wasn't longer. We cannot say enough about this amazing inn and look forward to our next visit.
We had a fantastic stay at Topside Inn thanks to the wonderful hospitality of Buzz, Mark, and Rebekah! Breakfasts were out of this world good. We stayed in room #25. The views of the harbor from our room and from the inn itself were great. Buzz and Mark gave my wife and I a complementary drink from their newly constructed lounge for our 25th anniversary. They are very attentive to the small details and it’s very much appreciated and enhanced our stay there. We look forward to returning, maybe with friends next time! :)
