Recent Boothbay Harbor Area reviews
Wonderful location, great place to stay!
"This condo was as described. Some of the photos may be blurry, but they showed the rooms accurately. The condo was very comfortable. It had everything we needed. Most important to me is it was very clean. The view of the harbor was fantastic! I loved the location. We could walk everywhere, to the shops, restaurants and the foot bridge! Paula was very helpful when I called her. She told us about a lobster pound down the road. We cooked lobsters two nights and ate them on the deck overlooking the harbor. I wish we could of stayed for a second week! This was a perfect place, I highly recommend this condo. We had a great week. Thank you Paula!"

"Everything was perfect when we arrived, including replacement of down pillows and comforter to accommodate a severe feather allergy. As frequent guests to Spruce Point inn in the past we know the Booth Bay Harbor area very well and have always said "someday we will stay at Retreat Cottage" but since we could never plan far ahead it was always booked. This year we are moving to the West Coast so this was our last Maine vacation - we never dreamed the cottage would be available but it was.
The cottage is small - perfect for two adults and is so peaceful. We started and ended each day sitting in the chairs out front - coffee in the morning; wine in the evening. The kitchen is small but thanks to our manager, Sue we learned of Eventide and were able to pick up some very nice cheeses, meats and breads for anti pasto We also stopped at the York Farmer's market on the way up and got some meats and veggies. It was easy to whip up a gourmet meal a couple of days - and the others we headed to Muscongus Bay Trading Company in Round Pond which is a long time favorte.
Having a chance for an evening sail on our last night made the entire trip perfect.
Thank you Susan for helping to make this happen and to our host John Druce who elected to keep the Retreat Cottage and maje u available for special memories."

"One of the best vacations.... the condo is just beautiful and the view is gorgeous, the landscape always changing with tide was very enjoyable. Being able to walk 5 mins in to the hub of Booth Bay with it's great selection of little stores and restaurants was excellent. The food was great, we really enjoyed the Blue Moon and McSeagulls. Day trips were abundant and we did not get to visit them all in the week we were there, so of course that means we have to go back to see the rest of it. Hopefully sooner than later."

"This spring will be our 3rd trip to Eleanor and Pete's wonderful efficiency apartment. The studio is very clean and neat, it is furnished with everything we have needed for our stays, from kitchen supplies to towels and bed linens, with comfortable beds and sitting area. The studio is located in a beautiful - quiet area, as you are eating breakfast be sure to look out and see the wild turkeys as they take their morning stroll. The deck is the perfect spot to have a lobster bake after you take in the beautiful sunset on Ocean Point. The location is ideal, you could easily spend a week just exploring the beautiful local areas - the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Peninsula, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and the Maritime Museum in Bath, for starters. Eleanor and Pete are extremely welcoming and helpful with anything you may need to plan your stay, their boat rides and tours have been a highlight of our trips. Our only regret is we did meet Eleanor and Pete and find this lovely place sooner. We are already looking forward to our 2016 visit."
