Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

There's room for up to 10 guests at this lovingly restored historic Boothbay Harbor home. Your 3BR/2BA abode is minutes of a walk from downtown, but you're still far enough away from the bustle for peace and quiet.

Enjoy water views and a tasteful nautical vibe throughout. The back deck and landscaped lawn offer tree-lined privacy and shade. Two living rooms and a gourmand's kitchen offer all the amenities you need for a family trip or a getaway with friends.

Downtown offers an array of fine seafood dining, live music, and quaint shops, and the region is close to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Maine State Aquarium, and more than 20 parks and preserves.

ABOUT THE HOUSE

Pops of color and patterns invite you into the sitting room, furnished with a queen-size futon, a lounger, and two white armchairs. Coastal-chic details offer a pretty backdrop for sharing hors d'oeuvres and conversation.

The living room is primed for a movie night with a 32” flat screen TV, a navy and white-striped sectional, and a comfy white armchair. Cream color walls add extra warmth to the space.

The culinary-minded folks in your party will love working in the gourmet kitchen. There's ample woodblock counter space, a gas range, and charming white brick detail, plus all the supplies you need to whip up special meals.

Find a wood table for six in the formal dining room, where built-in counter space conveniently holds serving dishes and bowls.

Access the back patio from this floor. It's stocked with two grills, a glass-top table for dining al fresco, and two colorful Adirondack chairs. The kids will love playing on the landscaped lawn, where trees offer privacy and seclusion.

A first-floor bath offers a shower. Upstairs, the shared bath has an art deco flair with black, white, and pink tiles alongside ornate wallpaper; you’ll also find a tub and a roomy vanity with a large mirror.

The master bedroom is furnished with two queen-size beds with winsome shell-patterned quilts. A rustic chest offers extra storage, and a dark wood desk set lets you catch up on emails while you're away from home.

The guest room boasts harbor views and a queen-size bed done up in white and blue. And the third bedroom has a twin-over-twin trundle bed, a tube TV and a carpeted loft space.

Amenities include a full laundry room, parking for two cars, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Long term rentals are available; please inquire.

Also, please note there is a tenant living year-round in the separate unit (with a separate entrance) above the garage.

THE LOCATION

With downtown Boothbay Harbor 1 minute away by foot, the town's delicious seafood, live music, and unique shops are accessible any time of day. Lobster, clams, and oysters await at Shannon's Unshelled and Cabbage Island Clambakes, 4 blocks away. After dinner, enjoy a cocktail at Harborside Tavern, then satisfy your sweet tooth at Downeast Ice Cream Factory. When it comes to day trips, don't miss the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens or the Maine State Aquarium — both are a quick drive away.

Girl’s Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The location was great and we could walk into town which was a priority for us. The house was adorable and very functional. With 5 women, 2 bathrooms was great to have and the kitchen was set up well with all the essentials. There was plenty of room and we each got our own bed! I would go back in a minute, loved it!

Reviewer Comments:

The Harrington House was perfect for our family's vacation to the Boothbay area. The house was very clean, spacious, and inviting with local decor. We had a couple of questions regarding our stay and the Turnkey team was very responsive. We visited several surrounding towns during our stay and decided that Boothbay Harbor was the place to be, with plenty of shops and restaurants. So glad we chose this house! Although the house is not far from town, we did not walk because we had small children with us and the steep incline on the way back made walking too much of a challenge for us. However, it was easy to drive down the hill, find a parking spot, and walk throughout the town from there. As others have noted, the bathrooms are an unusual set up but it worked out fine for our party of six... 4 adults and 2 children. We would definitely return to the Harrington House!

Delightful and clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us and our three boys, age 14-22. Larger than we expected, with lots of character inside. Very clean, and loaded with amenities and supplies. Excellent kitchen for families expecting to cook every day like we did. Walking distance to the harbor. One of the bedrooms can be reached only by going through the master bath; that's one quirk we could've done without. But everything was wonderful, comfortable, and very well kept!

The house was lovely, very accommodating, all linens were clean. The house is perfect for a girls weekend or a family stay! There were a few things that could have been dusted a little bit better, some cobwebs and spiders in places but nothing crazy.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a very nice stay at the Harrington House. The house was clean and had all the amenities you could expect and more. It was generally comfortable and there was plenty of space on the first floor. The neighborhood was nice and the house was in a perfect location for enjoying the downtown area. We really enjoyed the house. The main downsides are the upstairs bathroom and the tenants above the garage. Don't get me wrong, the tenants are wonderful people as far as I could tell, but having them around the property does take away from the privacy. The biggest downside is the upstairs bathroom. Having a bedroom only be accessible via the upstairs bathroom is pretty annoying, makes little sense, and is pretty awkward. Lastly, and this would only be a problem for some, the stairs can be difficult to climb. My father is disabled and couldn't make it up the stairs. Fortunately he was comfortable on the couch in the backroom. Not a knock on the house, just something for renters to be aware of. Overall we had a great stay and would recommend the house.
