About Christine Brophy

We are from Massachusetts and have been summering in Boothbay for most of our lives. With 3 young children we find Boothbay Maine to be paradise.

Christine Brophy purchased this house in 2000

Why Christine Brophy chose Boothbay

This is a beautiful home, a great place for young and old. With so much to do, close to it all but yet down a private road on the water this is the perfect place for any vacation.

What makes this house unique

The house is located 2 miles form downtown Boothbay Harbor. The aquarium, Boothbay Village Railway, and botanical gardens are just minutes away.

The Boothbay Country Club/Golf Course is less than a mile from the house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are back in Ohio after a wonderful week at your place in Maine. We

had a great vacation! Although our boys couldn't join us, our friends

did. They are a retired couple who fell in love with your place, as we

have. I hope everything is the way it should be in the house.

We were wondering if you are able to rent your place for possibly two

weeks next year? We were thinking about adding the week before, if you

are able.

Thanks again! We greatly appreciate your home.

Happy summer,
Jun 2015

Absolutely perfect home in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here one night with some friends who were renting. It was perfect for two families with kids but could easily fit large groups. From the time you open the front door you feel like you're entering a movie set of some quintessential New England summer movie. The kitchen, great room and dining area are large and very open. The Main floor also has beautiful views of the water. Nice wide pine floors, post and beam construction and very clean (I have no idea what the people in the last review are talking about)

The house sits on the water and is a stones throw to a nice area with a dock, picnic table kayaks etc.

We would definitely stay again!

Beautiful area

  • 3 of 5

The photos and description of this property are accurate and the owner was lovely to deal with. The view is nice, the location is close to Boothbay Harbor, we used the owner's kayaks (very fun/peaceful), etc. We were two couples traveling together and thought a house would more than meet our needs (we have done this elsewhere in the past). The biggest problem with this property for us was that it is an incredibly loud a snare drum. There is no insulation between the upstairs and downstairs so we could hear our friends gently rolling over in bed, walking quietly in socks, even standing (creak!). It was a bit comical. Our solution--the upstairs couple moved to the bedroom NOT directly above the downstairs bedroom...AND we kept the loud bathroom fans on for white noise. Good enough. The other problem for 3 of us were allergies likely triggered by the mold/mildew from the basement which was very noticeable. Our solution was to take antihistamines, open the windows, and turn up the heat a bit when we were "home." It sort of worked. More minor issues-- (1) sink in the master bath is strangely small and there is no counter space (literally no counter, just a bar-size sink in the corner), and (2) not a sharp knife to be found in the kitchen (which was OK for us because we didn't cook be fair, I usually bring a chef's knife if I plan to cook because this is pretty typical).

Owner's Response: It is so sad that a guest would write such terrible things that are not true. There is no mold in the basement or in the house. It is a beautiful post and beam home. I never had a single complaint then this terrible review showed up. I hope these people do not do this to other home owners.

this home was just what we had hoped for in a maine vaation!! great privacy and solitude: you could hear a pine needle drop while reading a book on the hammock...all the linens and necessities were provided..and the views were tremendous...yet with the quiet and solitude we were only minutes away from booths bay's shops and beaches...we loved a beach in southport..and our big "finds" were the boothbay brewing co.(great food, beer, and atmosphere) and the glidden oyster farm, where we ate oysters and clams on the half -shell...with a nice light rose from a local wine shop...this is a great that we intend to use for years to come.
