Topside Inn Review

The Adirondack chairs on the immense lawn of this historic, hilltop B&B have what is probably the best bay view in town. Dating back to 1840, this was the home of a wealthy shipbuilder, and it's equally grand today, with inviting common areas like a fireside lounge and wraparound porch. Rooms in both the main inn and two annexes are individually decorated with light, seaside motifs. The airy dining room looks out over the harbor, so breakfast comes with views of the fishermen coming and going.
