Description of the Boothbay Harbor vacation home rental
This picturesque property features a rolling lawn to the waters edge with a spacious dock for sunning, swimming and kayaking from and a waterside patio with a fire pit to relax by and enjoy the exquisite water view and sunsets over the Ebenecook Bay.
Walk along the water' edge on the country road 1 1/2 miles to Trevett Island and get breakfast and the newspaper or a seafood lunch on the deck and be lucky enough to see one of the last hand cranked bridges open for a boat to pass through!
The nationally recognized Botanical Garden, the just renovated and redesigned Boothbay Region Golf course ( which welcomes families for lunch and dinner and offers a really good deal if you want your children to take lessons while you golf), and downtown Boothbay Harbor are less than 3 miles away.

The restored and renovated 1,800 s.f. cape offers a comfortable well appointed living room and family room, a well equipped granite/stainless kitchen open to the dining room with french doors leading to a stone patio and a master bedroom with en suite 4 piece bath and a study on the first floor. The second floor has a full bath and two bedrooms. All but the master and study have water views.

One double kayak and two single kayaks are available by agreement and are gratis as are the two deepwater moorings.There are three land trust islands close by to kayak to for a picnic.
Linens, cable TV, wireless and gas grill are provided. Window A/C for bedrooms (just in case!) Pets by permission.
Area Information
Delightfully quaint Boothbay Harbor, voted #2 of the top ten prettiest villages in Maine by the readers of DownEast Magazine in 2012, has the perfect mixture of history, natural beauty, and entertainment options and is located 3 miles from the property. Don't miss the boat ride to Monhegan Island to spend the day exploring this most beautiful island 14 miles out to sea or go whale watching or go on a fishing expedition! For shorter less active trips take a sail or tour boat for a daytime cruise or sunset cruise around the islands or the Cabbage Island clam bake cruise.

For shopping there is of course BBH, but also Wiscasset, the next village south of Boothbay on Rt 1 (20 min drive) that will satisfy antique and book collectors, and has several museums as well as the famous Red's Eats restaurant. Damariscotta, the next town north of Boothbay on Rt 1 (20 min drive) is the place to go for the wonderful oysters raised in the Damarscotta River and the Damarascotta Lake for fresh water swimming (if you prefer your water warmer than the ocean!) Follow the road to Bristol and to visit the famous and dramatically beautiful Pemaquid Lighthouse, and visit the historic fort, and swim at the delicious white sand beach (20 min drive from Damariscotta)

Go north, again, on Rt 1, to Camden and Rockport, to visit two beautiful villages nestled by their harbors and drive up Camden Mountain for a spectacular view over Penobscot Bay (ca.1hr and 45 min drive from the property)

Great relaxing rental property

My Mom, sister and I recently stayed in this property for a week at the end of June. The location is very convenient to Boothbay Harbor, the Botanical Gardens and other area attractions. The view from the front of the house is beautiful. The property includes a little dock area across the street which was a perfect place to sit and read. We didn't use the fire pit but did sit in the breezeway quite a bit when the sun was out. The house is very well stocked with everything you need. My only word of caution would be that the stairs are rather steep and narrow so not good for older folks or young kids. Fortunately there is a bedroom downstairs which is lovely. The owner was very responsive and easy to deal with. We very much enjoyed our time here.

a month in Boothbay

My wife and I rented this property for 4 weeks during August and September 2012. We had friends from California for 2 of the weeks. We found this to be a prefect place to stay and explore the Maine coast, which we did. The house was very comfortable with many amenities including a nice breezeway where we enjoyed cocktails, an area near the water for reading and a great dock for taking kayaks out. The kayaks were included with the house. Our friends from California were equally impressed with the accomadations. Location was close to Boothbay Harbor which offers good dining, shopping and day boat trips. All in all the house was a great find and we would do it again.

Spectacular views

We rented this property in July and had a wonderful time kayaking almost every day. We were four adults and two grandchildren, ages 4 and 6. We could easily put the kayaks in the water off the dock, but not really suitable for swimming for small children. The house had everything we needed and we were quite comfortable. There is a road in front of the house before you walk down to the beac, so need to be careful with small children.Also had a fire pit so toasting marsh mellows was a must for our grandchildren. We would definitely stay here again because of the views, comfort, and closeness to downtown Boothbay Harbor. Thank You

BBH and Maine Vacation

The City of Boothbay Harbor (BBH): BBH is expectedly touristy but quaint and inviting. The city itself was easy to drive into, easy to find both municipal and private lot parking ($5 for the day) and easy to find a variety of shops, restaurants and activities, like whale watching excursions or kayaking. The women in the family (including 16 and 19 year olds) got their share of shopping in the smaller unique shops throughout the area. We went into Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a day trip (nice 3-hour drive each way) and found that we were glad we chose BBH as our base: “Baa Haa Baa” was too packed with people and cars for our liking. The Area: The area offered a nice variety of narrow winding roads, great scenery, beautiful homes and clean ocean air. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is very close by (2 miles) and is worth the visit. They have fantastic grounds that are well kept with plants marked for your reference. It includes a paved area as well as unimproved trails that are fun to walk. The House and Hostess: The price was very reasonable for the area and the time of year. It’s an older place that has all the conveniences you would expect while retaining the charm and simple living of a 70-year-old+ coastal home. We kept the windows open to enjoy the fresh air, and while it may have gotten warm toward the end of the day, the cool nights helped bring down the temperature very quickly on the main floor. We got some very restful nights in the comfort of the master bedroom. My wife and I spent more than a few occasions on the breezeway seating between the house and garage, enjoying the shade, breeze and bay view, cocktail in hand. The access to the ocean was expansive and spectacular, with our own seating area and fire pit at the edge of the property, right on Booth Bay. It afforded westward views of several islands, including Indiantown Preserve, Isle of Springs, Southport, Macmahan and Westport, along with beautiful sunsets. The dock and kayaks made enjoying the bay that much more fun. It didn’t matter whether it was high or low tide for kayaking. Overall: We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the area. Clearly, we didn't travel to Maine to look for Disneyland excitement. Instead, we seeked out and found a relaxing, beautiful, and slow paced vacation … just the kind of thing that our family needed to unwind. This was a great experience and a great rental … we would definitely recommend and return. Thanks Lucin
