Come enjoy the peaceful tranquility of this brand new lakefront retreat just minutes from the quaint seaside shops and restaurants! The rental is a private, bright, spacious apartment in the lower level of the home with 9-ft ceilings and LOTS of windows and glass to see the beautiful water and sunsets from each room. Enjoy star gazing, fishing, swimming, or choose out of 4 kayaks or rowboat to explore the mile-long lake waters. Walk out the French doors to the grass and sit back in an infinity chair and listen to the wind in the trees and watch the sun sparkle off the lake, or take the short path that leads to the private dock with swim ladder and swim, lay out on a towel in the sun, or perch on a tree stump near the water's edge. The large bedroom includes a queen-sized bed situated nicely to look out over the water. Two fold-away twin beds in the living room sleeps 2 more and can be made up as one bigger bed. The unit has a small but fully equipped kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances for your convenience. Bathroom has dual sinks. Enjoy a private entrance, heat and air conditioning on it's own zone, and parking for 2 vehicles. Unlimited WIFI and Sling TV with news package on a smart TV (also ready for your Netflix, Amazon Prime or other connectivity) included. Games and puzzles line the closet shelves to encourage an unplugged experience. Property is located on a quiet dead-end road that leads to sidewalks into town. Walking the beautiful oceanfront route to town takes approx 20 minutes or take the 5 minute drive in a car. This is a great starting location for exploring the rest of the Boothbay region as well! Take in area walking trails, choose a boat tour to see picturesque islands and lighthouses, take a dip in the ocean from one of the area's rocky beaches, or see the nearby Botanical Gardens. The main part of the home is a part-time vacation retreat for the owners. (The pin on the map is incorrect. House is the first on the left above the pin) Welcome!

Beautiful and clean home away from home
Wendy and Jim provided a home away from home! It was exceedingly comfortable and clean and they were very thoughtful in every design decision and amenities included. The light in the living room and bedroom was just gorgeous and we loved the view of the lake from every window. We traveled with our five month old and his pack and play fit perfectly in the bedroom walk-in closet and he had plenty of space in the living room to roll around and play. The access to the lake was incredible and we loved having access to the kayaks and row boat. Thank you, Wendy and Jim!
We chose Boothbay Harbor as our vacation destination because of the quaint shops, the Harbor itself and all the activities the area provides. Wendy and Jim's apartment was absolutely perfect to come "home" to at the end of the day. Even though the house is less than 5 minutes from downtown, you feel like you're in an entirely different area. It was like having two vacations in one!
Wendy thought of everything to make our stay relaxing. The house is impeccably clean and fresh, and decorated beautifully. The huge windows make the place feel much larger than it is. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is luxurious with plenty of clean, fluffy towels. We spent our mornings down by the lake having coffee and enjoying how quiet the area is. It was unseasonably hot during our visit, so it was nice to have an air-conditioned house waiting for us. There are so many wonderful places to eat in the area that we really didn't use the kitchen much, but for those that do, the kitchen is well stocked with the essentials. We enjoyed taking the little boat out on the lake and sitting out on the dock at the end of the day to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.
Wendy was so helpful during the entire rental process, answering our questions before our trip and giving us information on things to do (The Botanical Gardens and a voyage on the Schooner Eastwind are a must!). She checked in with us on the day we traveled to make sure we arrived safely, gave us a quick tour of the property, and then left us to enjoy ourselves. We had plenty of privacy and could come and go as we pleased. The week flew by, and we didn't want to leave - the sure sign of a successful vacation! I can't recommend this rental property highly enough, and I encourage anyone who is considering a vacation to Boothbay Harbor to come and stay here. You won't be disappointed!
This is a wonderful property with a beautiful view.
An amazing paradise
This property was absolutely paradise. It was very relaxing, beautiful and close to down town. I will definitely go back and recommend this property to all my family and friends.
Welcoming, private accommodation on fresh water lake.
I needed a temporary place to stay due to a last minute change in my plans and was fortunate to find the Barrows apartment available due to an unexpected cancellation. The apartment, on the lower level of a recently constructed home, is a pleasantly designed space, very clean and nicely appointed. The owners welcomed me warmly, were available for anything I needed while assuring my privacy. For visitors to the Boothbay area, this accommodation is conveniently located, yet away from the busyness of the Harbor. There is a dock with a selection of kayaks for adults and children to enjoy on the lake. Unfortunately, it rained most of my stay. The only amenity missing for me was the availability of a washer/dryer.
5 Stars! No question! Very comfortable.
My husband and I came up for a brief stay and loved it! This rental is immaculate, well cared for, and charming. You wake up every morning to a beautiful lake. We were looking for something peaceful and this was it! Close to town with all of the shops and restaurants. Great location! Wendy was wonderful, friendly, and sweet. Got back to us quickly before the trip and while there, was available if we needed her. She has thought of everything you would need both indoors and outdoors.
Boothbay Harbor is beautiful. Lots of places to explore. We hope to come back and will definitely rent here again! We highly recommend this beautiful rental! You will not be disappointed!
