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 Boothbay

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!

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.

Super Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for nature, peace and quiet, privacy, a clean, comfortable and stocked with everything you need vacation home, look no further than Ocean Harbor House. Plenty of room for our large family and two dogs. Centrally located , great gathering place for family and friends for a breakfast send off after our daughter's wedding. We visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens which is beautiful and has a great children's garden. We also went to the beach at Pemaquid point. Nice white sand, a snack bar and picnic tables make this a family friendly beach. There is a $4.00 fee per adult but kids under 12 get in free. They also rent beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys. We loved Boothbay Harbor and will definitely plan to come back. Becky and Russ are very helpful and easy to work with. If we come back with the family, we would love to rent Ocean Harbor House again. Thanks Becky and Russ for sharing your beautiful home!

Beautiful house and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, beautifully decorated house, in a quiet setting; this allowed us to relax and enjoy our wonderful vacation. This house has a large kitchen area and is stocked with everything you need. We especially enjoyed the front porch. The beds are very comfortable. Everything was wonderful and we would like to thank Russ and Becky for their attention to detail and concern that we were happy with the accommodations.

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent 5 nights at the house and had a great time. It's new, spacious, clean, had fresh towels, linens, and a kitchen stocked with all the equipment we needed. We walked into town everyday (short and safe), grilled dinner on the porch one night, played the games provided, and sat on the front and back porch daily with books and drinks. Having a half bath on the 1st floor (in addition to the 2 full baths) was helpful with a large group of 8, as was the spacious and open first floor.

Becky and her family were very helpful and responsive, even immediately dropping off a new charcoal grill when the one mentioned in the listing couldn't be found anywhere.

Note that one of the 4 bedrooms has a twin trundle that does not lift up to make a double bed, and another of the rooms has a double bed and 2 twin beds. The remaining two bedrooms have a double (upstairs) and king (master suite downstairs). The 4 bedrooms are really best for 3 couples + 3-4 kids.

We recommend this house for a larger group visiting Boothbay Harbor!
