Recent Boothbay Harbor reviews
Serenity by the sea.
"This is a perfect place to unwind, relax, etc. As mentioned in other reviews, the location to town is one of the main features that attracted us. Close enough to walk everywhere, yet far away from the hustle of the shops and restaurants. I loved the huge window facing the ocean inlet, hearing the foghorn blow, feeling the breeze through the windows in the evening, and the view could not have been any better.
I took advantage of the roof deck, reading in the afternoon sunshine, and just watching and listening to the birds and boats. This is the most relaxing spot we have been to recently. I would definitely return...the restaurants are wonderful, the surrounding areas are a lovely drive. We spent a morning at the Botanical Gardens, on the recommendation of a friend, and enjoyed it immensely. A little hard adjusting to city life again, but there is always next summer to look forward to!"

"I, along with three of my friends, spent a wonderful week at Lobster Cove. The house was just as described. Check-in and all contact with the Fosters was easy and efficient. The house was very clean, comfortably furnished, quiet and close to downtown. The walk into town is about a mile and easy for those accustomed to walking a bit--there's a park on the way. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. The house is very convenient to grocery and restaurants. The deck, the swing and the adirondack chairs near the water are comfortable and provide a great place to relax and read! We had coffee most mornings on the deck!"

"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!"

A Great Family VacationThat Has Something for Everybody
"My family members range in age from 6 to 65. The last night of our vacation we all sat around the lovely dining table overlooking Alden's beautiful yard. Each of us told what we liked most about the trip. The two 6-year olds (one boy, one girl) liked catching crabs and snails off of Alden's dock.....and playing croquet at the Burnt Island Lighthouse. My granddaughter also liked picking blueberries (her favorite) from Alden's garden. My 15 year old granddaughter loved climbing the rocks at Ocean Point. One 10 year old grandson loved playing hide and seek in Alden's yard, the other the Whale Watch. One of my sons loved kayaking the best, the other liked fishing. My daughter-in-law loved the fact that the quaint town was within walking distance of the house (as we all did). I loved it all, but particularly enjoyed rising early to enjoy the peace and quiet of the charming house and gaze out the window. One morning I even saw an eagle! After initially greeting us and sharing some very interesting history about the place, Alden and Karen left us alone. My family and I always felt "at home" there."
