Description of the Boothbay Harbor vacation home rental
Live a true DownEast vacation in a classic antique cape featuring a rolling lawn to the waters edge with a spacious dock for sunning, swimming and a waterside patio with a fire pit to relax by and enjoy the exquisite water view and sunsets over the Ebenecook Bay.
Located on a country road following along the water's edge, with one + acres of useable land( the rest is wooded), it is a comfortable walk to The Gregory Land Trust Trail for a water view walk in the woods or the Trevett Country Store for breakfast or a seafood lunch on the deck where you may 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 newly designed Boothbay Harbor Country Club ( which welcomes families for lunch and dinner) and beautiful downtown Boothbay Harbor are 3 miles +/- from the property.

The first floor of this restored and renovated 1,800 +/- s.f home offers, a spacious living room and a family room with 42" flat screen cable TV, a well equipped granite/stainless kitchen open to the dining room with bay window view of the water and french doors leading to a stone patio with a grill, a master bedroom, study and bath with marble shower and separate tub. The second floor has a full bath and two bedrooms with large dormer windows of the water view. All the bedrooms have window A/C and all but the master, study and baths 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 picnicking and hiking.

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. There is plenty amusement for ever age. 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 Damariscotta Lake for fresh water swimming (if you prefer your water warmer than the ocean!) Follow the road to Bristol to visit the famous and dramatically beautiful Pemaquid Lighthouse, and the historic Fort William Henry, part of Colonial Pemaquid, and swim at the delicious white sand beach nearby. Bristol is ca. 20 min drive from Damariscotta.

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

Great space

August 8, 2015

We rented this house with 1 couple, 1 89 yo parent and 1 friend. The house was clean and spacious. There was plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing while still coming together to enjoy family dinners. Lucinda was accommodating when we asked for anything and was available by phone or e-mail. I had everything I needed to put together a family meal. Conveniently located by car to Boothbay Harbor. Enjoyed walking the property and waking up in the Master Bedroom to look out and seeing the flowers. The house is historic with period furniture. Great trip and would rent again from Lucinda.

Great relaxing rental property

July 14, 2014

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

September 11, 2012

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

August 5, 2012

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

September 19, 2011

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
