Guestbook comments from the owner

Cher Tom;



Nous avons passé 2 belles semaines l’appartement etait tres agreeable, eclairé pres de toutes les activites aux quelles nous avons participeés. Ici il y a beaucoup de sorties pouvons faire; croisiere, bateau, voilier, peche. De plus nous avons apprecie les visites des maisons historiques aux alentours et cela dans un rayon d’une heure & moins de route. Nous garderont un tres beau souvenir de l’endroit.

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!

Exactly as advertised !

  • 5 of 5

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!
