Recent Boothbay Harbor reviews
Serene cottage close to everything
"We enjoyed staying in this comfortable, spacious cottage complete with our own laundry, cook's kitchen, free wifi and relaxing decks. Within walking distance to Sprucewold beach and dog-friendly, kayak and paddle board-friendly Barrett park, this home is wonderful for active families or adults who enjoy running, biking, or walking along the picturesque roads down to the beach or harbor. Bike riding the hills under majestic tall pines will also create an appetite to enjoy the lobster at nearby pounds and restaurants. House comes with it's own lobster pot and utensils, too! If you would just like to relax, you can do it here,too. Boothbay Harbor's walkway is a quick bike ride or car ride away. Owners were excellent which made for a relaxing Maine vacation. Bringing the pooch was a plus, too."

"My husband and I have been to the Boothbay area many times and thoroughly enjoy our vacations. This rental provided us with a wonderful week of quiet and enjoyment in ME. We are both retired and unfortunately the stairs provided a challenge for my husband, but it also gave me an opportunity to "work out" in the outdoors. The local community is very nice and we enjoyed the pond but also liked the fact that it was close to town and made most of our destinations accessible. The cabin provided all our needs even though the weather didn't always cooperate. We will certainly be back to this wonderful area and are glad to have found a place to enjoy it!"

"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!"

"This rental is really special. We loved everything about the property – so much care was taken with the landscaping and the outdoor seating and the beautiful vistas – there was literally something new to discover around every corner. It made me happy every time I turned into the driveway to know what was awaiting us. It's really hard to describe how lovely the property is but trust me...
The Boothbay region is a fun place to explore – if you have kids, DO NOT MISS the Maine Coastal Botanical Garden, which is right around the corner from Arden. We spent most of the day there and had we known they had kayaking, we might have spent even longer. There is also a small little aquarium just down the road - small as in one room - but good for an hour or so of fun for the kids.
The upstairs unit was really comfortable with everything you’ll need. It was spotlessly clean (something I don’t always find in VRBO rentals), the kitchen was fully stocked, the bed was comfortable and there was a fireplace and TV/DVD player for the occasional rainy day. The washer/dryer unit was nice to have as well.
This is by far the best all-around VRBO rental we've had in Maine; I'd love to return. Thank you!"
