The Mooring's generous accommodations make it an ideal vacation venue for family reunions. The living room is framed by picture windows and a large fireplace, and the adjoining dining room can seat all the cottage guests at its expansive oak dining table. The kitchen features a commercial Wolf range with full battery of cooking equipment.
The Master Bedroom sleeps four, and surveys the bay from three sides. A central hallway provides easy access to bedrooms and bathrooms alike.

Year Purchased: 1896
About the owner: Joshua Dill built The Mooring in 1896, and our family has been summering on Linekin Bay for over a century!
Why the Owner Chose Boothbay Harbor: Our great grandfather lived in the Boston area, and found a summer vacation village that he could reach in two days. Overnight steamer from Boston to Portland, ferry from Portland to Boothbay Harbor, then wagon to Bayville.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Right on the water, we enjoy the good weather brought to Linekin Bay by a prevailing Southwesterly breeze. The bay is protected, and we have great sailing, snorkeling, waterskiing, and fishing.
Or, you can relax in a rocker on the wrap around porch, and watch the day roll by.
