About Becky Schmelzer

My family and I live in Winthrop, ME (lakes region), where my wife, Becky is from, but I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts Our family loves the ocean and is the reason why we purchased this home in Boothbay Harbor. The property is private and a few minutes walk to the harbor as well as downtown and minutes to Barrett Park. Barrett Park has wonderful swimming and picnicking area right on the ocean. You can also bring your pet to the park which we love as we are animal lovers and we walk our lab, Jackson around our home all the time.

Becky Schmelzer purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky Schmelzer chose Maine

Boothbay Harbor is a very desirable area of mid coast Maine. My wife is from Maine and Boothbay Harbor has always been a favorite place to come visit. The restaurants and shopping are amazing and we never tire of what the harbor has to offer. The towns people are incredibly friendly and are always welcoming.

What makes this house unique

The privacy is great because of our pets, there is no one on the road but us! But even though we have tons of privacy, we are only a few minutes walk to the harbor which is convenient as once we arrive, we don't have to worry about driving and can really take advantage of the beautiful views and surroundings of the area. We love the footbridge leading into the harbor and starting off our adventure with an ice cream cone as soon as we cross the bridge!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Becky,

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Boothbay Harbor. The weather was beautiful and your gorgeous home was absolutely perfect for us! Everyone raved about how clean, comfortable, spacious and peaceful it was. We cooked several meals in your lovely kitchen and had many laughs around your dining room table. Thank you so very much for making our post-wedding vacation memorable. We will absolutely recommend your home to our friends.

Thanks again!

Boothbay Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 9 who traveled to Maine for a weeks get away. This home was comfortable and everyone had a bed to sleep in. The kitchen was fully furnished and we enjoyed having a few meals at home. We were within walking distance to the harbor, but the hills are tough to walk. I would recommend this home.

Beautiful home

Thanks for a great stay in your home. The house is in a great location, close to the village but in a quiet wooded area. The house is clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay!

Relaxing home in the heart of a true New England experience

  • 5 of 5

This house made us feel right at home. We were 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs. We had plenty of space and always felt at home. The house is away from the noise and chaos of downtown but close enough that we were able to get into town quickly and enjoy all that Boothbay has to offer. The owners were very responsive to emails at all times and made certain that we had everything we needed.

Thank you for the use of your wonderful home.

Beautiful home with fully supplied kitchen and bathroom

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at the Schmelzer's home. It was a vacation with extended family. Very restful and relaxing in a beautiful and spacious home. We were all very impressed that the house was stocked with paper towels, garbage bags, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper towels, etc. They clearly do their best to make sure that their guests have a comfortable stay. The only drawback, and this may not affect most people, but many members of my family have bad allergies and can't keep the windows open because of grass and tree pollen. Being that we could not keep the windows open at night, it was a bit warm for us when it was time to sleep. There is no A/C upstairs. Otherwise, when we were on the main floor spending time with the family where there was an A/C unit in the living room, we were quite comfortable. Also, make sure to go to Shannon's Unshelled in town. One of the best lobster rolls we've ever had!

The house was perfect for our family gathering in Boothbay Harbor. It was clean, we'll equipped, and convenient to town. We really appreciated our hosts' hospitality and hope to come back.
