"We were at the boat house for the fall colors. The studio was perfect for just the two of us. The view of the harbor was stunning. The walk to town was short and enjoyable. Boothbay is a wonderful town with lovely shops and restaurants. We sailed on the Eastwind on a beautiful day. What a pleasurable vacation spot. Gene was a great host."

"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."

"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!"

"The Moorings is the perfect vacation spot! It is a lovely, Maine house with charm and an amazing location right on the water. We spent a week at this house for a family reunion (there were 16 of us!) and absolutely fell in love. There was space for all of us, a kitchen that had more pots, pans, dishes, and glasses than most summer camps and a view from the porch that was worth every penny.
We brought our kayaks and paddleboards and tied them at the private dock. Since the Moorings is on a bay, we could boat and swim in the calm waters every day. It was heavenly. The cute, small residential area of Bayville had tennis and indoor ping pong and everyone we met was friendly and kind.
By the end of the trip, we were all scheming how we could own such a property on the coast of Maine. This house is a gem. We are so thankful to have found it for this week and we can't wait to return!"
