Quiet location on the edge of town, close to everything....
"The apt. at Arbor House was light filled, comfortable, well furnished, spacious and very tidy. We were right at home with the funky and eclectic decor where books and art abound. The bed was extremely comfortable. Location is ideal to downtown Rockland; leave the car in the driveway and walk to museums, galleries, great restaurants and cafes, theater and more. Owls Head, Camden, Thomaston, Rockport and other towns are easily accessible by car. This was our first trek to this area of Maine and we'll be back for sure. The hosts at Arbor House are friendly and available, but never intrusive. The garden was amazing, even in Sept."

"We have returned to the Boy's Camp for at least 8 summers for a fabulous week of sunsets, swims in the Thoroughfare, and adventures on Vinalhaven. It is a magical place for anyone who loves hiking because there are three different nature preserves within walking distance. It is also a splendid place simply to sit and enjoy the summer traffic of sailboat races, ferry arrivals, and yachts of all kinds. The cabin has everything you need, and its deck and outdoor shower enable to you to live outdoors most days. I can hardly wait to return."

"My husband and I rented this cottage in June 2015, and we also brought along our dog. It was our first time visiting Boothbay Harbor, and I want to first start out by saying that it is an amazing little town! It is super dog friendly, and every one was so kind and helpful! It's definitely a great vacation spot! We were told by the locals that we came early enough to beat the summer tourist rush, but at a time where we were still able to enjoy their annual Windjammer Festival.
The cottage was beautiful, and it is in a very convenient location and easy to find. It is truly on the water, and the views can't be beat. It was absolutely stunning to wake up to views of the harbor out of the large picture window every morning (something I miss already!)! We took advantage of the rooftop deck a couple of times, and the views are even more stunning from there. We were grateful for the jetted tub, as well as the kitchenette with the full-size refrigerator. Furthermore, we really enjoyed the fact that we had access to their larger, neighboring property's dock, and we spent a couple afternoons just lounging on it.
One reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there were some cobwebs (though I think it's because we were one of the first people staying in it for the season), and I am terrified of spiders. Luckily, my husband was there to rescue me :) Also, the small kitchen table and 2 iron (?) chairs were a little difficult to use. Since the chairs are so heavy and fit so snug between the legs of the table, there were a few times when we went to stand up from sitting and the chairs fell backward from under us. I would maybe recommend some lighter wooden chairs.
We didn't get the chance to meet Shane or Gene while we were there because we were constantly out and about, but they were very accommodating through email and over the phone. They made sure to send us tons of information about Boothbay Harbor that came in handy, and I believe they were right up at their neighboring property if we really needed them.
Overall, it was a great vacation, and we would definitely stay there again if we find ourselves back in Boothbay Harbor! Thank you, Shane and Gene!"
