About Tom

Former city dweller living on nearby island. Appreciates classical tastes and small town charms. Antique and art collector for years.

Tom purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Tom chose Boothbay Harbor

Small town character and courtesies and village community in gorgeous unspoiled setting. Easy access to best boating on east coast of America.

What makes this apartment unique

Perfect dimensions for easy living. Solid and secure yet at the heart of village. Drive and park to remote parks and gardens, walk to boats, shops and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have had a fabulous week. The apt was great. I really liked not having to use AC. I just the left doors open at night.

I love anything to do with water. So I have done the whale watch, Bay Lady Sailing, the small lighthouse tour. Tomorrow at 12:40 I am taking the other light house tour.

I found out I like the ice cream factory. I really liked the book store uptown. I ate lobster at Fisherman's Wharf. It was very good and I ate chowder at the Chowder House.

I went to East Boothbay and was sure glad I stayed here (instead): So nice to walk everywhere and across the footbridge. The homes are beautiful on Atlantic Ave. I like sitting on the balcony and watching the Harbor. Went to the Botanical Gardens and it was worth the trip.

Hope it's ok if I leave the car parked here til I get back from the lighthouse tour, then I will start home after that. As you can see I am trying to delay going home. Thank you so much Tom

great location

  • 5 out of 5
had never been to Maine, and thankfully chose Tom's rental, the location is perfect close to all the action but just out of earshot.
the balcony overlooking the harbor is the definition of relaxing.
Tom is quite helpful but not intrusive, I hope to be back

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you included a week with us in your east coast tour (from Maine to the Caribbean!). It was a delight to have you and I could tell that you had relaxed from your busy life in LA. I hope that you might come again.

Had a wonderful time

  • 4 out of 5
The unit was clean and looked just like the pictures. It was very convenient being rignt in downtown Boothbay. We could see the harbor from the unit and restaurants were only a few steps away. We especially liked Ports of Italy, Down East Ice Cream Company, and Blue Moon Cafe. Tom was very helpful recommending things to do and restaurants both in Boothbay and further away.

In Town Retreat

  • 4 out of 5
I had a great time in Booth Bay Harbor. I really enjoyed staying at the retreat. It was so nice to be able to be the center of things. The apt. was really nice , I enjoyed sitting on the balcony, having coffee and watching things going on in the harbor. It was quite, homey, just right for 1 or 2 .
I went sailing with the Bay Lady soooooo relaxing. Went whale watching saw a couple of whales, I took both of the lighthouse tours, I took the last one to extend my stay . I did not want to leave.
I drove to a couple of other towns , I Enjoyed the botanical gardens.
Yes I would go back and stay at the same place and do it all over again

Owner's Response: Karen - it was a delight to meet you and I appreciated your dilemma the last day - squeezing out that last boat ride so you wouldn't be gone. I know you said this was an item on "the bucket list" but I hope you might come back and try it again just to be sure you checked it off!

wonderful time!

  • 5 out of 5
We went up for a getaway for a few days and had a wonderful time! The rental was really comfortable, in a perfect location so we could walk all over town, and the owner had wonderful recommendations for places to eat. He didn't steer us wrong once! I would stay here again.

Great Girls Weekend

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriends and I recently stayed at this property and had such a great time! The location is just perfect, close to restaurants and great shopping all within walking distance. There is so much to do in Boothbay - botanical gardens, farmers market, great places to eat. The front porches are a great spot for a cup of coffee in the morning to watch the boats go by in the harbor. The property owner had such great recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would highly recommend this property and hope to come back next year!!

A Perfect Weekend in Maine

  • 5 out of 5
Most enjoyable weekend stay at this lovely, relaxing apartment. Sleeping on a most comfortable bed was a plus. Conveniently located overlooking the harbor and within walking distance of the town: restaurants, shops and friendly atmosphere. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking hospitality, a beautiful setting and all Maine has to offer. A very welcoming place to relax and unwind.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your short stay to "test" the place for my longer summer guests. I hope you can come back and stay longer next time. As the old town office the building is right in the center of town and indeed I find it tempting to stay there myself from time to time.
