Enjoy a walk only minutes into downtown Boothbay Harbor for excellent restaurants, live music and shopping. Deep sea fishing and whale watching daily from the pier along with many other ocean activities to experience. Take in the beauty of the scenic Maine mid coast by driving around the harbor and the neighboring harbors. Lighthouse tours and the botanical gardens. Gray's Wharf & Mine Oyster showcase terrific local musicians along with a great dining experience as well as many other local restaurants. Taxi service and trollies are also available.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My family and I live in Winthrop, ME (lakes region), where my wife, Becky is from, but I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts Our family loves the ocean and is the reason why we purchased this home in Boothbay Harbor. The property is private and a few minutes walk to the harbor as well as downtown and minutes to Barrett Park. Barrett Park has wonderful swimming and picnicking area right on the ocean. You can also bring your pet to the park which we love as we are animal lovers and we walk our lab, Jackson around our home all the time.

Why the Owner Chose Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay Harbor, ME, USA:
Boothbay Harbor is a very desirable area of mid coast Maine. My wife is from Maine and Boothbay Harbor has always been a favorite place to come visit. The restaurants and shopping are amazing and we never tire of what the harbor has to offer. The towns people are incredibly friendly and are always welcoming.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy is great because of our pets, there is no one on the road but us! But even though we have tons of privacy, we are only a few minutes walk to the harbor which is convenient as once we arrive, we don't have to worry about driving and can really take advantage of the beautiful views and surroundings of the area. We love the footbridge leading into the harbor and starting off our adventure with an ice cream cone as soon as we cross the bridge!
