About Josh, Greg and Seth
Joshua Dill built The Mooring in 1896, and our family has been summering on Linekin Bay for over a century!
Josh, Greg and Seth purchased this House in 1896
Why Josh, Greg and Seth chose Boothbay Harbor
Our great grandfather lived in the Boston area, and found a summer vacation village that he could reach in two days. Overnight steamer from Boston to Portland, ferry from Portland to Boothbay Harbor, then wagon to Bayville.
What makes this House unique
Right on the water, we enjoy the good weather brought to Linekin Bay by a prevailing Southwesterly breeze. The bay is protected, and we have great sailing, snorkeling, waterskiing, and fishing. Or, you can relax in a rocker on the wrap around porch, and watch the day roll by.

Beautiful home in jaw-dropping locale
Our group of thirteen stayed at the Moorings and absolutely loved it. From the coffee drinking mornings to the wine drinking afternoons, the massive wrap around porch was the center of the house. Old marine artifacts, comfy furniture and traditional style made this the quintessential Maine experience.
Welcoming, beautiful, relaxing
What a beautiful and well equipped home. Our family enjoyed swimming, kayaking, and exploring Maine. We enjoyed every moment from morning coffee on the beautiful porch through and evening meals in the wonderfully large dining room (then back to the porch). Even the weather was perfect! Thank You
Quintessential Maine vacation house
We had a glorious week at the Mooring with family and friends. It accommodates families perfectly, with six bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Many of the bedrooms have more than one bed, so our adult kids got to reconnect like it was summer camp (they even worked on jigsaw puzzles on a rainy day). The kitchen is organized for cooks-- a gorgeous Wolf stove with a built-in griddle, sharp knives and pots/saucepans/omlette pans/lobster pots. The dining room table acccommodates 10+. Kayaking and swimming were easy from the dock, but nothing could beat the soft breezes on that covered porch; we enjoyed its beautiful southern views of Linekin Bay on our green rocking chairs for coffee in the morning and cocktails in the afternoon. Spectacular!
This was our second time at the Mooring, and like 4 years ago, it was great. The views, the beds, fully equipped kitchen, and the charm of an old maine home. My son's and grandsons fully enjoy the dock, fishing and catching crabs as well as kayaking in the cove. Docking our boat at your private dock was a plus. Beautiful views sitting on the gorgeous big porch , which we enjoyed every day and night. We will be back, for sure!!!!!!!
The BEST Family Reunion
We had such an amazing experience at The Mooring! The view was phenomenal, and the space was a absolutely perfect for our group of extended family and friends. We had family members from age 23 to 91...and everyone had a fantastic experience. The private dock was perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. Everyday at The Mooring was an adventure. The covered porch slowed for us to be outside at all hours (enjoying both the calm morning views and the brilliant sunsets). We can't wait to go back! ...but please don't choose our week ;)
We have been renting here for many years. A great house in a great location on the water. We will return this year and we hope many more to come. A wonderful, unique property.
