House, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Known as Eleanor & Pete Yes, we retired here in Maine and drove local school busses. Pete’s job before he retired included extensive travel throughout North America and other countries. Eleanor was a stay at home Mom with a lot of interesting part time jobs such as dog officer, welcome wagon hostess, school bus driver ( 36 years wow! ), newspaper reporter, and dog groomer. We sold our two acre 200 year old farm in MA to retire to Maine and built a new home in the heart of the Mid Coast, and we love it here and want to have you enjoy it too..
Owner purchased this House in 2000
Why Owner chose East Boothbay
We chose the area of the Boothbay region for it’s uniqueness: we are a community of boat builders, fishermen, beautiful islands, rocky shoreline with some sandy beaches, unusual seabirds, a gorgeous new Botanical Gardens, quaint shops, great restaurants for unusual dining of fresh seafood along with standard fare, lots of wonderful hiking trails, and lovely conservation areas.
What makes this House unique
When we had our home built on the coast in East Boothbay 21 years ago, we added a unique benefit in the form of an “in-law” apartment for Eleanor’s Mom. After she passed on, we decided it would be fun to share our wonderful world here with those who have never seen the Maine Coast, or those who love it the way we do! The apartment has been updated with new furnishings, kitchen appliances etc. and we delight in taking our guests off-shore in our 32 ft lobster-style yacht to see the islands, quaint coves, lighthouses, and harbors.

What a great place to stay in the Boothbay Region! Close to everything -- less than three minutes from Ocean Point and about ten minutes to Boothbay Harbor. The apartment is comfortable and Peter and Eleanor mean it when they say they want you to use the deck and the grill. Then there is the boat ride -- so relaxing and they are such great tour guides. If you do not know your way around the region before the boat trip, you certainly will afterward. We cannot recommend this location highly enough.
60th wedding anniversary getaway
Communication with owner very easy. Property as advertised. Lovely peaceful getaway just as we had hoped. Thank you, Eleanor and Pete.
Very nicely located
This efficiency apartment was perfect for us. Quiet yet just minutes to everything. It is very nicely located in East Booth Bay with much privacy just a 1 minute drive to Ocean Point (with phenomenal sunsets) and 5 minutes to downtown Booth Bay Harbor with dining, shops and tour boats. There are several good hiking spots nearby. Our hosts Pete and Eleanor were incredibly nice. When we arrived, Eleanor gave us a tour of the area which was very helpful. Pete is a wealth of knowledge if you have any questions. He has a nice boat and was happy to give us a ride in it. They are both lovely people but not at all intrusive. The apartment has a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator which we appreciated, cable TV and wifi. We had all the comforts of home. Pete even let us store our bikes in the garage which was helpful. I feel it is a good value and we would definitely stay here again.
A great place to stay!
From the moment we arrived we felt at home,maybe because of the effusive welcome,or maybe because of the really splendid apartment,equipped with everything we could possibly need.It is sett on a private road,very peaceful and with a glimpse ot the water through the surrounding trees.
We were soon to experience this water first hand,because Eleanor and Pete took us on their boat,sitting on the after deck in some style.The trip lasted three unforgettable hours,cruising into bays and rivers,viewing the magnificent properties which line the water and docking for a time in Boothby Bay harbour (locals spell it "Harbor"for some reason!)
where we all had very good ice cream.A truly wonderful way to start a holiday,genuinely unforgettable.
We would not hesitate to recommend this as a great place to stay.

Thanks for your review! It sure added to the pleasure we had with you staying here on Mid-Coast Maine.
Enjoyable and Relaxing Stay
My husband and I stayed here for about a week during August. The area is beautiful and relaxing with lovely sea and inlet views nearby. Eleanor and Pete are delightful hosts with a gift for hospitality. Everything is well-organized and welcoming. It is also very nice to have a full kitchen with anything you might need and pleasant places to sit outside. The apartment has it's own entrance and a good sense of privacy. It was also nice to know Eleanor and Pete were available (and very happy) to answer questions and give local advice. We both found it to be more relaxing and private than a B&B. One thing I really appreciated and found relaxing is that Eleanor and Pete give you a sense that this is your home for the week -- so go ahead and use the deck, move furniture around a bit, make a bouquet of ferns, make yourself at home : ) My husband and I have very good memories of our stay here -- from a wonderful boat rides and ice cream to walks on an old rock dam -- not to mention the amazing lobster and charming Boothbay Harbor!
Relaxing and worry free
Owners peter and Eleanor were such nice hosts. They expressed their desire to be helpful with anything we needed. They told us to make ourselves st home and use the deck and bbq anytime we wanted. We wanted to relax and enjoy and that is exactly what we did in a very pleasant surrounding with very nice hosts. Eleanor took us on a little trip to show 2 spots that r near her home. They r lookout spots to ocean, surf and rock when tide is out. We had s great week with great hosts
