About Patty Sterling

Mark & Patty Sterling-Welsh are the property owners. We own the Boothbay Harbor Mart & Country Store in the heart of the downtown. We have always dreamed of living in Boothbay Harbor and we recently made that dream come true! We moved here after many years of watching for a property in the downtown Harbor area.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing all the beauty of Boothbay Harbor with you~

We are here to help make your vacation a pleasant and memorable occasion.

The Boothbay Harbor Mart & Country Store has beer & wine, along with supplies and needs you may have forgotten or simply would like, to complete your stay.

Why Patty Sterling chose Maine

The special location of this property speaks for itself. So many desire this type of location allowing for you to park your car and never need it again until departing.

What makes this apartment unique

If you do wish to venture out of the Harbor, the location of this building is perfect! You are right in the midst of everything while still being able to hop in your car and head to the Botanical Gardens or to see Ocean Point or hike a trail.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been better situated. We parked our car and did not use it for our entire stay. The property was clean, comfortable and well appointed. We would highly recommend this property to anyone! The owners are very friendly and conveniently located for any of our needs.

Great little apartment steps away from everything!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days and had a wonderful time. Perfect location if you're looking to be steps away from everything. The car stayed parked all week and we walked to everything because it was so close. The apartment was very clean and recently remodeled along with being dog friendly it's the perfect spot to spend some time. The Gimble family are super nice people and easy to deal with and I would recommend staying in any one of the locations they have all in the same building.

Great location, perfect for a couple

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, open space with all the amenities. Great kitchen and pleasant staff helped us get settled. Fun to watch the busy street from above. I would suggest guests plan on packing efficiently for this second floor apartment. It was a bit tricky to unload our luggage at a busy time of day and then move our car. Safe parking is provided about 2 blocks away.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I just loved this little apartment; I felt like I was a Boothbay resident for a week. Right away, I was uplifted by the coastal decor. It has all the amenities you need to include a shared washer and dryer downstairs. It's right 'downtown' Boothbay but amazingly is very quiet especially after 9pm. The owners live right across the street and are available to help if you need them. The entire Boothbay is within walking distance so once you get parked, you dont really need a car. I would stay there again!!! Just note that the max capacity is 4. 4 is cramped, so if you cant stand being in close quarters its not for you. But if you like cozy charming spaces, you will love it! A special thanks to the owners who accepted my reservation last minute. This spot was exactly what I need!
