Antiques and art. Classic yet fun. More 'Shabby Chic' than 'pottery barn.' Private entrance. Private deck. Note: the TV's are excellent, but Network access is basic. If you are coming on vacation to watch something specific on TV plan on using the pub or select another apartment with cable.

Would recommend for any couple to stay and enjoy Boothbay Harbor area. Less than two blocks walk to the boats to go out in the harbor whale watch, seals, lighthouses hauling up Lobster cages. The botanical gardens the aquarium Lobster Co-op lobster for $7 a pound can't beat it. The Farmers Market on Thursday just outside of Boothbay within a couple miles farmers market, it's very nice fresh produce, sausage, cheese,homemade breads I would like to go back for that. Can't list everything you have to go and check it out yourself two thumbs up

This piece of property is sweet!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the 2nd story apartment. It was so sweet! Very clean

and well-maintained. You have everything you need: A nice-sized living room,

kitchen and dining for 2, one bedroom and a full bath. You can see the harbor from the deck.

Net-flix is a luxury for us and we enjoyed it on one of our days there. You can walk to everything.

This was a first for us and it was sweet not to have to jump in the car, at a whim!

We went to a couple of the restaurants for breakfast (blueberry pancakes:) and dinner

(seafood). Caught lunch while we were traveling nearby...The bed was so comfortable

and I was wondering what we were sleeping on. So, when I stripped the bed at the end of our stay:(,

I saw the secret! Now the cat/dog is out of the bag! What's the secret???

Well, you'll just have to rent this little gem and find out for yourself:)!

Tom is so nice. He brought us some English Muffins and cookies. Ruthie

(the Westie) is so sweet too. Yes, I would definitely recommend this to my friends/relatives.

P.S. I loved running into Queen Elizabeth waving from the window!

Owner's Response: Well. Surely the most unique review. And much appreciated. For those who are not unfamiliar with the hand-waving "solar Queen Elizabeth" you'll just have to save that little treat for a visit. Thank you.

Wonderful week in a wonderful location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 29 McKown st., proved to be a perfect choice. The location was right where we wanted to be and Tom and his sidekick Ruthie, were the perfect host's. Everthing that you would want to do, was within walking distance. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Tom,thanks for all your suggestion to fill in our spare time. We hope to see you again.

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If anyone is going to Boothbay Harbor Maine, look no further for a place to stay. The location is the best in town in my opinion, and you could not ask for a better host than Tom. He is very helpful and knows the area like the back of his hand. His accommodations are clean and Homey. Make sure you bring some baby carrots for Ruthie.

Owner's Response: Another fantastic set of guests. Though I fear Ruthie is getting spoiled. Please come back anytime including the Winter Light show at the Botanical Gardens.

Nothing but fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

After our 2 week stay, it was hard to say goodbye to our 2nd floor apartment at 29 McKown. Tom was welcoming, as was Ruthie, his 4-legged side-kick. The apartment is spacious & well appointed. The best feature is the front deck overlooking the harbor & the quaint town. We ate breakfast & most dinners out there, sipped wine & did some excellent people watching. Location, location, location! We walked & walked and after our days out and about, our apartment was wonderful to come home to. We were comfortable from the moment we arrived and look forward to our return.

A Wonderful find!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property! The location was fantastic, and Tom(the owner) was hospitable and ready with a fix when we asked.

We had a fabulous view of Boothbay Harbor, and a wonderful balcony to enjoy morning breakfast and afternoon drinks!

We were sad to leave, it was a great "home away from home" for our month long stay.

My husband and I each give Tom (and Ruthie!) two thumbs up. We couldn't have been more pleased!

Owner's Response: Glad to have you - a month was the longest stay here yet. You both found things to do every day and were a pleasure to have around. Ruthie misses you and looks forward to your return next year!
