Why Mark chose West Boothbay Harbor
This is a wonderful property, with a great vibe. Built in the 1970's the home is retro and modern and the same time. The first floor has a full kitchen that opens to a large dining room with a long wooden table that comfortable fits 80 to 10 guests. There is a small sitting area for the adults to relax and play cards. There are windows on three sides with views over the street and shipyard. There is a full bathroom and laundry on this level. Up a wooden spiral staircase is a large living room with soaring vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows looking out over the tops of the shipyard buildings to the harbor and island beyond. The three bedroom and full bathroom are also on the level. The three-story deck has comfortable furniture, dining table and chairs and a gas grill. The gallery space on the first floor is currently not occupied.

Great get away
The boathouse is a great property. Mark and Buzz at the Topside were great support and offered many wonderful options regarding things to do and where to eat. The property has nice views, is an easy walk to town, and well appointed. We’ll be back!
We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. The Boat House is a fun property, with a three-story deck, soaring ceilings and wall of glass overlooking the boatyard and harbor, this unique property is a great place to stay while enjoying Boothbay Harbor. We hope you can visit again.
Always Love Boothbay Harbor
Great spot. All good
Boothbay Harbor-great location & great loft!!
If you are looking for a place to stay along the Maine coastline, this is the spot - Boothbay Harbor!! Beautiful scenery, great location to travel to attractions and the other coastal towns/villages, and a peaceful atmosphere.
The property was perfect for our family of 5. Everyone had their own bed. Very soft sheets! A/C units in each bedroom were a plus. The 2 full bathrooms worked out great. Very nice towels and Beekman 1802 toiletries!! It was also nice to have the washer, dryer and detergent available to use. Enough seating in the dining area and the upstairs living room. Nice furnishings, great lighting and decorated very nice. The outdoor top deck was fantastic.
The location of the property was walking distance from the downtown area of Boothbay Harbor so it was great just to walk in and go shopping, go out to eat and walk around. Definitely recommend to go in all the stores, visit Shannon's Unshelled for the best lobster roll ever and go on a Schooner sailboat ride with Eastwind. Also, the Harborside Tavern had great ribs and fish tacos/sandwich. The Boathouse Bistro Tapas Bar and Restaurant had the best mussels, and the blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup were amazing at the Blue Moon Cafe.
Mark and Buzz were great hosts. Very nice people and easy to communicate with by email and text. They provided a lot of information on places to go, things to see and do and places to eat. An added perk was the discounted tickets to the Botanical Gardens and Schooner sailboat ride.
My family and I were very happy that the property was available for our first trip to Maine.
No question about it, just book it ;)
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review Wendi! The house is great and the location is very convenient. It's fun being on the working waterfront and also being a quick walk into town The restaurants you mention are some of our favorites. So glad you had such a great trip!
Great Maine experience
Great property in a great location! Fun eclectic decorating and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Short walk to downtown with lots of fun shops and restaurants. Thanks!
Thanks Stacy. We love the house and are glad you enjoyed it as well.
Best home in the best town on the Maine coast
This property is breathtaking. From the 3rd floor balcony to the spacious living area and two full baths, it provided everything we needed and more. It's a short 5-min walk from the shops and is across from a historic shipyard which lets you appreciate one of Maine's oldest industries. Boothbay harbor is the best town on the coast (and we've seen a few!) providing the best in food and recreation. From the moment we booked, Mark was very communicative and provided every bit of info we needed. Checkin was seamless and he even offered to tell us a bit about the town and the best spots.
