The chapel was perfect for our family. The Hosts were very accommodating and gracious! The area was great for walks to the water and hikes through the woods, which we enjoyed very much. There is a lot to do in Boothbay and nearby. It was all perfect!
An Experience You Don’t Want To Miss!
It was so unique and beautiful too! Tired of the usual vacation rentals? Do something special and surprise your family with this amazing piece of history. The rooms have all the bells and whistles, yet have touches of history everywhere. The cubbies never seemed to end. And the homeowners seem to know just what their guests need to feel special. You will not be disappointed in this property!
We’re looking forward to returning again and again! Highly recommend it. The location is perfect for touring in any direction, or just to get away for a little peace and quiet and meditate a while. It’s more than a house. It’s a true sanctuary! Great vacation!
The Best Vacation Ever
These folks are the best hosts you could ever hope to find.The chapel is beautiful. The fruit and cheese plate with champagne is very welcome after a long day traveling. The tourist literature provided by the hosts is extremely helpful. Thanks for a wonderful and memorable stay.
Indeed a religious experience!
Whether a person of faith or agnostic, the Linekin Chapel affords a delightful and memorable stay in the Boothbay area. The generous welcome platter with fruit, cheeses, crackers and other nibbles lasted the entire week. A nice bottle of wine was included. My wife and I have stayed in many VRBO properties in the US and Europe and few were as well stocked as this one.
This unique experience will stand out for us and I suspect for others. Although two adult couples can be easily accommodated and children will enjoy climbing a ladder to the third bedroom, sharing the one bathroom located between the two first floor bedrooms will be necessary.
Few rentals offer the ambiance and special touches this property provide.

The Best of the Best
If you are planning a trip to the Boothbay Harbor area look no further! The "Pink and Purple Church," as this property is known locally, is an exceptional find. The interior is truly stunning, and the owners have paid close attention to every detail to make your stay comfortable and cozy. We loved our eight nights there and hated to leave. As other reviewers have mentioned, you are greeted with a platter of cheese and fruit in the frig, fresh flowers and a bottle of Prosecco -- what could be nicer? Stained glass windows surround the space and filter light throughout the day in the living room area, the bathroom and both bedrooms. The closets in the bedrooms have automatic lights and are well-stocked with towels and other linens you might need. We immediately noted how much thought Jason and Kristin have given to organizing the living space, with everything placed in a logical and easily accessible spot: the kitchen utensils, pots and pans, storage containers, coffee filters, dish towels, spices, foils and wraps. We have rented some high-end places and have been disappointed at the state of the kitchen with everything just thrown together for the next set of guests. Not so at the Pink and Purple Church. Jason and Kristin clearly care about you and your experience in their home. And the kitchen was important to us! Not much is open in East Boothbay or Boothbay Harbor in early May (think very cold and very wet) so we cooked almost every night. Some other thoughts: the chapel is very well-heated, no drafts or cold spots. The WIFI signal is strong, and the TV offers Netflix and other options. Ocean Point is just a short drive away, great for photos and looking for sea glass and driftwood. Just down the road is the Linekin Preserve trail; other preservation areas are also close by. The drive to Popham Beach State Park is easy, go at low tide to walk out to Fox Island. The Art Museum and the Arctic Museum on the Bowdoin campus in Brunswick (free) are great for a rainy day. --Many thanks to Jason and Kristin! We look forward to future stays at "Pink and Purple" and have already recommended it to friends.
A Healing Experience in a home away from home
I selected Linekin Chapel from hundreds of listings as the perfect location to heal from hip replacement surgery, it was divine guidance. The peace and serenity of the property is amplified by the attention to detail provided by the caring owners who have kept as much of the 'Chapel' feel in designing a living space as is possible. Waking to sun filtering through the many stained glass windows is truly a unique experience.
Jason and Kristin provide all the amenities you would have in your own home including a well appointed kitchen, comfortable seating, ample linens and towels and entertainment options for a housebound guest among the many conveniences.
The property is located in a quiet neighborhood minutes from pristine views of the ocean, the true Coastal Maine, from which you can watch the sunrise or sunset. I did not miss a single sunset the entire stay!
The Boothbay region has much to offer the explorer with hidden treasures like the Aquarium and The Botanical Gardens in addition to the many quaint shops, art galleries, restaurants and boat trips. While I was not able to take advantage there are also many walking trails I look forward to experiencing in the future.
I highly recommend this property without reservation, you will not be disappointed.
