Tom purchased this apartment in 2002
Small town character and courtesies and village community in gorgeous unspoiled setting. Easy access to best boating on east coast of America.
Perfect dimensions for easy living. Solid and secure yet at the heart of village. Drive and park to remote parks and gardens, walk to boats, shops and restaurants.
I have had a fabulous week. The apt was great. I really liked not having to use AC. I just the left doors open at night.
I love anything to do with water. So I have done the whale watch, Bay Lady Sailing, the small lighthouse tour. Tomorrow at 12:40 I am taking the other light house tour.
I found out I like the ice cream factory. I really liked the book store uptown. I ate lobster at Fisherman's Wharf. It was very good and I ate chowder at the Chowder House.
I went to East Boothbay and was sure glad I stayed here (instead): So nice to walk everywhere and across the footbridge. The homes are beautiful on Atlantic Ave. I like sitting on the balcony and watching the Harbor. Went to the Botanical Gardens and it was worth the trip.
Hope it's ok if I leave the car parked here til I get back from the lighthouse tour, then I will start home after that. As you can see I am trying to delay going home. Thank you so much Tom
Property was very neat and clean and very convenient. Off street parking was a plus, but be ready for 3rd floor walk up to the apartment. We kept the deck doors open every night and never had to use the A/C. House renovation construction across the street was somewhat noisy but only between 8 and 3:30pm. Owner Tom was on site daily and very accessible for questions and recommendations on where to eat and shop. Loved his dog Ruthie!!! The kitchen is small and the stove not easy to cook on, but lots of places to eat all meals within short walking distance. We joined the Boothbay Harbor Country Club for the week and played golf there every day. It is spectacular. Also took our family (maximum 6 people) on a sail on the Sarah Mead, a friendship sloop that leaves from Spruce Point Inn 4 times a day and goes to several lobster traps so the kids can see how lobstering is done. Our grandkids 6 and 10 also loved the Maine Aquarium.
We had a great week in Boothbay Harbor. Our host Tom answered many of our questions and was incredibly helpful. Our property was centrally located where we could walk to everything. It was a great week.
My husband and I had been looking forward to our first trip to Maine for a long time. We were not disappointed. We like to rent with VRBO, and this experience was a good one. We stayed in the third floor apartment. The stairs were a bit tiring, but we needed the exercise and the view from the top is amazing. If I had done nothing more than sit on the balcony and gaze at the harbor, the trip would have been a success. The owner Tom greeted us cheerfully shortly after we arrived and gave us many helpful hints to make the most of our stay. It is so nice to have the advice of a local. The apartment itself is very clean and roomy. We only ran the air conditioner a short while. We slept with the doors open and drank in the ocean breezes. It was quite comfortable. Amazingly, there was little noise overnight even though we were right in the center of town. The sun comes up early in Boothbay Harbor, so be prepared to be an early riser. You will want to get up and get started on the many things to do and see in the area. My favorite thing was the sailboat ride. We just walked across the street and booked the ride as well as a trip to Cabbage Island for a lobster bake. We enjoyed shopping and browsing the Boothbay Harbor shops and eating in the local restaurants. The library was across the street and hosted a local arts and crafts fair as well. We visited the botanical gardens which were lovely. We drove to nearby sites such as L. L. Bean and Bar Harbor. There was so much to see and do in this state that we wished we could have stayed much longer. The only thing we did not enjoy was the whale watching/puffin excursion. It was too expensive for just brief glimpses of whales and tiny puffins flying in the distance. Plus, the boat goes far out in international waters which were choppy and made many people on the boat sick. We would highly recommend BoothBay Harbor and this property to anyone who wants to have a genuine Maine experience. The only drawbacks to the property were minor ones. Get ready to sleep in twin beds if you are a couple, and be prepared to wear wrinkled clothes. Even though the description says iron and board, there is none. There is a washer and dryer on site with detergent; this was quite helpful since there were only two towels to use all week. I want to end this review by saying a big thank you to Tom for being such a friendly and nice person. It was so nice meeting him and listening to his accent. Thanks!
If you've never been to Boothbay Harbor - and are traveling alone or with close family or friend - this is the perfect spot to stay. You'll be in town but close enough to the water to enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine out on the balcony and drink in the view!
There are stairs to navigate but they also mean you have great cross breezes at night. The landlord is helpful, full of local information, and willing to advise.
A full kitchen means you can boil your own lobster for dinner, make breakfast before you head out for the day, or pop up for lunch if you aren't in the mood for one of the great restaraurants nearby. Additionally, you can make what you want to take along for walking the nearby nature preserves or kayaking the estuaries.
You will not regret choosing this spot while in BBH.
Our stay was wonderful. The view from the balcony is a delight, made even more so when, on a lovely summer morning, one shares it with a companion, coffee in hand. The apartment is perfectly located, close to the many local restaurants and shops. Our very helpful and generous host's restaurant suggestions proved excellent. He also described a number of activities that our short stay would not permit, so we are planning to visit again. We highly recommend this rental.
Perfecte plek voor een vakantieweek aan de kust. We voelden ons zeer welkom geheten door de eigenaar, met onze eigen vlag wapperend vanaf het balkon.
Uitstekende uitvalsbasis voor geweldige tripjes per boot op zoek naar walvissen en papegaaiduikers. boothbay Harbor biedt het allemaal. Onze gastheer had een perfect logboek voorbereid met tips voor ontbijt, lunch en de heerlijkste diners. Het uitzicht vanaf ons balkon was fantastisch (zeker met het vuurwerk op 4 juli). Alle faciliteiten waren op loopafstand. De eigen parkeerplaats was luxe
