Just back from a day trip to the Boothbays, and the buzz is about the upcoming Restaurant Week, Sept. 19-25. Participating restaurants will be offering three-course meals for $22.09 (+grat., tax, booze). Details are hard to find, as there’s nothing yet posted on the Chamber of Commerce’s web site.
But, I can tell you the Topside Inn is promoting it, and I can’t think of a nice or more convenient place to call it a night…or a morning. It crowns that intown knoll, and the views extend over the harbor and bay and beyond. Very private, yet a two-minute walk to all intown activities.
Rooms, spread out between the main inn and two motel-style annexes are all decorated in handsome B&B style (nothing frou frou here), and most have at least a glimpse of the water. But frankly, I think I’d spend most of my day in one of those Adirondack-style chairs, placed just so on the lawn, mesmerized by the views.
