Property description

Are You looking for a unique experience? If so, you have found it at the Linekin Bay Chapel. The Chapel was converted to a 2 bedroom home and has the original stained glass windows and bell tower. It boasts a large open living room with the original hardwood floors and a sun room.

Relax on the back deck with a drink and barbecue or go for a hike on the bordering Linekin Preserve which offers over 100 acres of hiking trails including scenic ocean frontage. Also for hiking, the Boothbay Region Land Trust (BRLT) offers over 30 miles of coastal and woodland trails which are open year round and are free to the public. A 5-10 minute walk takes you to bold open ocean frontage on King Phillips Trail where there are spectacular sunrises. Less than a 5 minute drive takes you to Ocean Point where you can watch a breathtaking sunset (don't forget your camera).

Downtown Boothbay Harbor is 4.5 miles away and offers numerous shops, galleries, restaurants and great night life. Ocean cruises are available here for lobster/clam bakes, as well as whale and seal watching excursions. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens (the largest in New England) is less than 10 minutes from the chapel and offers over 250 acres of waterfront and woodland trails; it also includes sensory gardens, impressive waterfalls, stonework, and a great Cafe.

The Chapel has a large wrap-around deck with patio furniture and a gas grill. There is also a large sun porch which is a great place for morning coffee. It has a well stocked kitchen with some of the original wood cabinets. We have now added a dishwasher for your convenience. We also now have an air conditioner as well as a washer and dryer with recent renovations.

Feel free to use our complimentary bicycles to explore the area or rent a scooter in town. There is also a public boat ramp nearby. There is also a nearby lake so feel free to use our canoe and life jackets.

The Chapel, also known as 'the Pink and Purple Church', was built in 1911 and was a Methodist summer chapel. It was later converted to a private residence and an art gallery and is known for the whimsical color scheme.
