Come On, Spring!

The Welch House has got your cure for cabin fever! The melting is well under way (and boy are we ready for it) but no matter what the weather, there's always a home-away-from-home for you here in Boothbay Harbor. Get a few friends to come up together and play some games in front of the fireplace, or head out to Robinson's Wharf or McSeagull's and hear some great musicians play. Fisherman's Festival on April 24-26 will be packed with all the fun and charm as always, and there are concerts at the Opera House, classes at the Botanical Garden, and hiking trails just waiting for your footprints. So come on, spring into the harbor: we're waiting for you!

"My husband and I stayed at the Welch Inn to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. This was only the second time we have stayed at a B & B - and - thanks to the Welch Inn - it won't be our last. Susan and Michael are the quintessential hosts! They are welcoming and warm and made our stay memorable. The rooms are lovely. We stayed in the Leeward Room with a queen size bed (very comfortable), attached bathroom and fireplace. The inn is exceptionally clean and well appointed. At night we enjoyed either sitting on the deck or in the main room enjoying the fireplace. We couldn't have asked for more. On top of it, we were treated with a lovely gourmet breakfast - homemade apple pancakes and a tasty crab quiche! Not to mention their great endless coffee and homemade granola, muffins and scones! What more could you ask for! This was our first time visiting Boothbay Harbor and we will most definitely return. Also, if you visit make sure to enjoy the breakfast and take Michael and Susan up on their restaurant recommendations. Thank you Susan and Michael - you exceeded our expectations!"
