About the property

A truly memorable Maine vacation. See why "Vacationland" is a real thing!
Enjoy your own oceanfront accommodations where EVERY BEDROOM HAS IT'S OWN BATHROOM (no sharing), but within a short walk to the center of town. Sitting atop a sloping knoll, this 1920's coastal home has undergone many renovations over the years, each with an interesting story. What has remained constant is its incredible view of the Atlantic. The most recent is the chef's kitchen with butler pantry and wet bar area, all with plenty of storage. Private chefs love this kitchen. There's even a powder room on the main floor.
Each bedroom has it's own bath with shower. The Penthouse, situated at the very top with private balcony, also features a Jacuzzi tub and king size bed.
A sprawling slate patio is perfectly poised for morning coffee or sunset cocktails. It's idyllic views make for a memorable family style dinner or lunch. Stroll down the grounds to the dock with floats and enjoy those cups of coffee or cocktails right on the water while soaking up the view of lobster boats and sailing vessels drifting by. Guests have been known to flag down local lobsterman and purchase fresh-out-of-the-water lobsters for that night's boil. You may even see a curious seal swimming by.
A short walk to town, but far away enough to have highly sought after privacy during peak season. Due to the nature of the location, we caution parents to be aware of the high patio, sea wall and sloping nature of the grounds when determining appropriateness for children under 16.
BRING YOUR BOAT!! Floats and mooring available.
Need more space for a larger group? There are 2 other rentals on the estate available: The Boathouse Cottage (#343069), sleeps 2, and Landings East (#402456), sleeps 4. These 2 rentals are dog friendly, whereas the Manor DOES NOT permit pets in the house at any time. Here we grow again with the addition of another property, listing 1150399(Captain Barter House)Sleeps 6, 1.5 bath, waterfront, walking distance to town, and RIGHT NEXT DOOR. The Properties at Mill Point are all in close proximity to each other so this is a perfect spot for that larger reunion (can accommodate 24) or just give each other some space. Many guests with parties of 6-10 enjoy the size and independence of the Manor, not to mention the bedroom specific bathrooms. Sure, you can rent a property that claims to sleep 10, but with 2 baths....is that how you want to spend a vacation?

About Shane Riley
Sur La Mer, now The Manor at Mill Point, operated as a Bed & Breakfast for many years, garnering repeat patrons that loved calling it home during vacation. With the ongoing challenges of operating not only a B&B, but also a number of other businesses in town, we determined that the home could be more beneficial as a weekly rental to larger groups looking for the perfect spot to make new memories, and likely an annual getaway. With those renovations previously mentioned, the owner's quarters are in a totally opposite wing of the home, complete with our own bedrooms, baths, kitchen, living area, and entrances. You're greeted, given a tour & brief history of the home, and then the adjoining door is locked during your stay, offering your group privacy but having the benefit of issues resolved or questions answered very timely.
Shane Riley purchased this House in 1998
Why Shane Riley chose West Boothbay Harbor
In our opinion, and of those that have stayed, this is the best spot in town with unsurpassed views of the harbor and ocean.
What makes this House unique
Situated on a dead end street, guests avoid traffic noise but have the benefit of being walking distance to town. With the upcoming acquisition of yet another waterfront property, the entire peninsula could be rented for a large group, up to 24 people in 4 separate homes. 2 are pet friendly; pets are NOT allowed in the other 2 at any time.

Boothbay Harbor Home away from home
Everything we could wish for. Fabulous views, well stocked, helpful host, proximity to village, every room ensuite.
Unmatched Patio and View
Wonderful holiday for our three generation family of 12. The new kitchen, huge harbor facing patio, and separate baths for each bedroom made the Manor House the ideal rental for our family's stay in Booth Bay Harbor. Having Shane, the owner nearby was very helpful. He was our concierge when need, responsive yet invisible.
What a wonderful time everyone had. The views, the food, the adventures. I appreciate your kind words and am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in the harbor. Creating memories can be as complex as an outing or as simple as just sitting on the patio, enjoying the activity in the harbor. Hope to see you again.
Our Wonderful Boothbay Harbor Vacation
We are a group of longtime friends who vacation together every year. Sur La Mer offered a very well-appointed house in excellent condition along with a splendid balance of comfort and elegance. We enjoyed our time together in the roomy living room as well as the large patio that offered a spectacular view of the harbor. We took pleasure in the short walks into town for shopping and restaurants. Viewed from the middle of the outer harbor during an evening sail, the stately and picturesque Sur La Mer served as visual confirmation that we had made the right choice for a week vacation home.
Shane was an excellent host and offered the perfect touch in terms of being available to address any of our needs but also ensuring our privacy. He offered a great knowledge of the area and made every effort to ensure that we had an enjoyable experience.
It's trips like this one that really solidifies old friendships: outings, the views (better enjoyed with a glass of wine), dining. Thank you for choosing my piece of heaven on the point as your vacation spot this season. I hope you'll return to relive those memories and make new ones that couldn't be squeezed in due to time restraints. There's so much to enjoy.
Great vacation for my wife's 40th birthday.
We booked Sur La Mer for my wife’s 40th birthday. We had 5 couples join over the course of a week and we had an absolute blast. The place has an amazing location – right on the harbor – and a short walk into town. You can actually see lobsters off the dock at low tide! One day we bought lobsters from a lobsterman checking his traps right of the dock. That made for an amazing meal on the huge patio that night. We did yoga on the lawn one beautiful morning. The proprietor, Shane, was extremely accommodating and had excellent recommendations in terms of places to go, to eat things to do. Highly recommended. My wife and I travel a lot and we don’t usually visit a place twice - we may make an exception here.
I thoroughly enjoyed having your group at the house for the birthday celebration. I hope you'll return to enjoy the views and additional offerings. I was inspired to take on Yoga after watching the group be so into it on the lawn. Apparently, I'm better at lifting my wine glass for a 2nd pour than downward dog.
Beautiful home right on the water...fabulous views!
This was a group of childhood friends (nine luxurious women) celebrating a milestone birthday....we had a wonderful time and loved the house. It is hard to find a house with six bedrooms, six baths in Boothbay...but Sur La Mer filled the bill. Easy walk into town and many restaurants and attractions. Homeowner Shane was very helpful and always there when we needed him. Boothbay Harbor is a magical place. If you want to go, stay at this property...I guarantee you will make memories you'll never forget! Thanks Shane! Here's to LRC!
I never thought that watching 9 ladies do the electric slide on my patio at midnight could be so much fun! What a great group of friends that know how to have a good time. I don't think my summer would've been quite the same had you not vacationed here. I look forward to winning back my $10.
What a View!
Our family of twelve spent the week of July 4th at this wonderful rental. The location is perfect. When we would tell shop owners in town where we were staying, they would all say 'that's the best view in town', and they were right! The property is very charming (as is the wonderful host, Shane...he became an extended member of our family) and is well appointed and comfortable. The dining room table was huge and perfect for game playing, puzzles and lobster dinners. The house is a very short stroll into town, so the teenagers were able to go in town each day to explore. Wine on the patio is a must at sunset. We hope to make it back again in the coming years!
What a perfect way to start my season! I really did feel like the long lost cousin that could hold his own at a backgammon board...I'm taking everyone down next time! It really is the perfect spot for viewing fireworks, boats, cocktails, dining, walking to town...did I mention cocktails? I look forward to another adventure with the family again. I've got some additional activity options up my sleeve.
