My wife and I just spent 4 nights in Boothbay Harbor and loved both the area and Tom's place. Bright ,clean,-it was great. Tom was a wonderful source of info concerning area attractions and dining, and having "Ruthie" greet us when we would come in was a treat.

Superb Boothbay Harbor Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at 29 Mckown for two wonderful days. What a gem of a special Maine harbor town and what gem of a place to stay! Tom provided such great local information which made our trip even better. Our short trip so great we realized two days was not enough.

We stayed in the second floor apartment and wow, so very cozy, comfortable, spacious and with reserved parking. The view of the harbor and town from the deck is fantastic. The great shops and great restaurants are just steps away. Tom had recommended Ports of Italy for their great Italian cuisine. It was exquisite, such great food and casual attire acceptable.

We have very high expectations when we travel and 29 Mckown far exceeded those expectations. Thank you again Tom for making this possible and please give Ruthie another well deserved treat.

Owner's Response: Well, thank you for your compliments. To be sure this old grand dame building is shabby chic with comfort where you need it and a long list of improvements to make each year. Our location will never change however as it can't be beaten. We look forward to your return.

Wonderful !!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a most wonderful week in Boothbay staying in the spacious, clean and well accommodated property that has the best views! Tom was the perfect host along with Heidi his assistant in the office and Ruthie the Westie who seems to think she is in charge. We had daily visits from Tom and Ruthie and they were the highlights of the morning. Tom had plenty of information to guide on us the best excursions and tastiest restaurants to fill our stay. The last evening on our trip for the week Tom cordially invited us to partake dinner with a few of his friends for a quite delicious home cooked dinner on the main floor and we had a marvelous time. I have been making trips to Boothbay for 50 years or so now since a young child with the family and I cannot think of a better stay in all those years. We will most definitely stay here in all of our future trips. Tom......we can't thank you enough, see you soon.

Owner's Response: What's there to say but come back. Easy guests, really appreciative of the town and the place. And there have been changes and additions to the restaurant scene that are very exciting for the hungry-end-of-long-days-out-playing!

It was a perfect week in the perfect location! Tom was an excellent host and provided a terrific list of things to do and see. (Trust him on the restaurants - he knows his stuff! ) The apartment was comfy and cozy and the deck was spacious and relaxing with a great view. If you like being in the center of things, this is the place to be!

Relaxing with plenty to do!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and I very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely, spacious apartment. The view to the harbor from the balcony was beautiful and there was no shortage of things to do, even without a car. Tom (and Ruthie, his adorable Westie!) was a great host, making us feel comfortable and at home. He had plenty of suggestions of places to eat and go. We took in a lively jazz concert at the BB opera house, a five minute walk up the main road. The Friends of the BB Library has a great used bookstore right across the street. We took a two hour sailboat ride on the Lazy Jack, that pulls right out of the harbor several times a day. We kayaked, visited lighthouses, hiked and then slept restfully each night on the most comfortable bed! There is plenty of room for two people in this unit, and I loved the big bathroom. It was a super week, and we weren't ready to leave the following Saturday. We're already thinking about reserving our week for next year. Thanks Tom.....you, Heidi and Ruthie felt like old friends by the time we left.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. As I mentioned, I try to make sure Ruthie is not a bother to people who are not inclined to like dogs - but she can be the official greeter if encouraged. We hope to see you again soon.

Ideal Location & Great Harbor Views from Private Deck

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in this clean, well-appointed, and spacious apartment. The location is ideal, literally steps to shops, restaurants, and all the harbor has to offer. Enjoying the private deck was a highlight. We took advantage of many of the local outdoor activities including a variety of Land Trust trails and kayaking from the Botanical Gardens. Tom was a wonderful host, giving us privacy yet availability for questions and recommendations. An added bonus for us during our stay was Tom's Westie, Ruthie, who cheerfully greeted us whenever she was in the building.

Owner's Response: What a kind review - and I though I do try to make sure that Ruthie does not intrude on people - she seems to know those who are coming to Maine to be greeted with enthusiasm. We hope you return next year.
