Description from manager

Beautiful and Spacious Seaside Home in East Boothbay with Deep Water Dock & Float, Wrap-Around Porch and Sunset Views. WELCOME TO CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS! Here you can sail, swim, kayak, fish and boat- all from your own dock & float. "CQ" is for anyone who loves the ocean! Located on the east side of Linekin Bay, just across from Cabbage Island, this comfortable three-story home in East Boothbay is the real deal.  This house was featured in the made for PBS television series, Getting Away Together.  We have a link to the episode's sizzle reel and more fun behind the scenes videos on our Youtube channel: Getting Away Together- Boothbay Harbor Region.

This home was built in the late 1800's as an Inn for the Eastern Steamship company. It features a spectacular wrap-around porch on three sides with beautiful sunset views over Linekin Bay and Cabbage Island.  People also love to gather in the kitchen which has an island in the middle and several bar stools for eating or just "gathering together" to cook and talk and enjoy time with each other.

To Our Guests: A Note From The Owner

      "I grew up in this area went away and came back and Jeff moved here with his family in 1977 as a summer resident.  We met here, fell in love here, and got married here at the house. We love living here year-round.  The Boothbay Region is so beautiful and full of quaint small towns with lots of history and charm!  There is something for everyone! This area has a lot of local restaurants, no chain restaurants and also a few craft beer breweries. You can tour lighthouses, historical museums, shop, eat, sail on a schooner, paddle around the Bay in a kayak or visit the interesting and beautiful aquarium and botanical gardens. When you get tired you can come home and relax on this beautiful porch and enjoy the ever-changing weather and views of the Bay watching seals and sailboats. We love to spend our Sundays out on the boat fishing for mackerel and bring our catch home and cook it for dinner.  We love to travel but we really love coming home to Boothbay!

      Beginning the day with coffee down on the dock and ending the day on the covered, screened glassed porch with a glass of wine or a favorite drink makes for the perfect day and night. In the evening, the cooks congregate in the kitchen, the kids like to play on the porch and the sports lovers like to watch the game in the living room. All the bedrooms are on the second and the third floor, so if you want to go to bed early you probably won’t hear the noise downstairs. The house is minutes from downtown. Our house is on Ocean Point, yet you feel like you're far away when you get home. There are so many things to love about this historic house. There is a lovely breeze off the Bay that makes for lovely cool nights and great sleeping! This house embodies the "Classic Maine" and the “Real Maine”.  We believe we are merely the caretakers of this wonderful home and we love sharing it with others to enjoy it and create beautiful lasting memories with family and friends.  This house has been a “home-away-from-home” to thousands of people over the years. And, the tradition continues."

THE HOUSE: Overlooking Cabbage Island and Linekin Bay, Captain's Quarters is rich in history and began life as an Inn in service to the steamships traveling the coast of Maine and later became a Sea Captain`s home. Come and see how the current Captain and his family have brought this gracious lady into a modern world without destroying the charm and character of the house. On the first floor, you will enjoy the well-equipped kitchen, formal dining room, large living room and 3/4 bathroom (shower). The large spacious kitchen is well equipped for preparing big meals with two coffee makers, two refrigerators, and an additional freezer plus an island for socializing, the kitchen is large enough for folks to ‘hang out’ while preparations are underway. The living room has a gorgeous fireplace and several furniture groupings offering plenty of space for conversations and indoor activities such as puzzles, board games, and WiFi. Mementos from the current owners as well as historic pieces from over a century of visitors, this cottage welcomes you to come right in and make your own memories! The second floor has one full bathroom and four bedrooms: The Lilac Room has a King bed, gracious lilac wallpaper, and soothing furnishings. This room is for morning people with views over the terrace and lawn. The Nautical Room has a Queen bed and just enough nautical touches to have you dreaming of adventures on the high seas. Lace curtains frame views of Linekin Bay and Cabbage Island. The Butterfly Room has Two Twin Beds. Hand-painted butterflies flitter about...
