Laura Francis is a native to the Boothbay Harbor region. Laura’s history, her commitment to the community, and her in depth knowledge of the area make her the perfect fit as Innkeeper of The Russell House Bed & Breakfast. Laura is an accomplished chef and caterer with an excellent reputation for food service and hospitality management in Boothbay Harbor.

Laura is more than happy to give you local restaurant recommendations, advice on day-trips and, if you’re lucky, you might just get to meet her other half, Steve Francis. Steve is a retired lobsterman and certainly no stranger to the local community; he has fished the Boothbay region waters since 1953.

When Laura isn’t welcoming guests, she enjoys sewing, restoring furniture, gardening, strolling through downtown Boothbay Harbor, and cooking for pleasure as well as spending time with her family.
