Perfect location & best host (Tom)
This rental was just as advertised. The location can’t be beat. You can (and will) walk to almost everything you want to see or do. Tom, the host, was a great communicator & met us when we arrived. He is delightful, as is his little sidekick (dog) Ruthie. Tom had provided us with extensive written info on places to see, things to do, and restaurants to try (and some to avoid). This saved us a lot of time doing our own research, and removed the trial & error aspect. He was accessible if we needed him throughout our stay but wasn’t intrusive. Having our own parking space was great. The rental was clean & charming, with everything provided that you might need. The balcony was the best, getting wonderful morning sun, and we cooked our breakfast & ate it out there every morning. It was also perfect to sit there & people watch, or watch the boats on the water down in the Harbor. The front porch (down at street level) also has comfy furniture for sitting any time of the day or evening. We were blessed with absolutely perfect weather during our whole stay. All in all, a great rental, a great vacation. Thanks Tom & Ruthie!
Another couple of happy escapees from the heat of their own summer to the coast of Maine. They were responsible and interested in ideas and a real pleasure to have coming an going for the week.
Ideal location in Boothbay Harbor
My husband and I enjoyed our week-long vacation in this beautiful location. The location just up the hill from the harbor was private enough but close enough to everything in town. Tom was an excellent host and suggested activities and restaurants based on our interests - and the changing weather! The rental was very comfortable and we especially enjoyed our private balcony - both for morning coffee as well as wine in the evening! It was worth staying here and was a great location to explore the entire Maine coast in easy day trips!
Lovely people to ad, I hope to a growing list of repeat customers. They left the place tidy and clean and were a joy to host.
Awesome and Relaxing Vacation
We had a great and positive experience.
As I have the place longer I get many repeats and some new guests to welcome as regulars. I hope guest like Patti and her husband come back soon!
Four years and counting!
We have just returned from our trip to Boothbay Harbour, our fourth year. Our stay at 29Mckown Street has always been much anticipated. The location is the best, and Tom and sidekick “Ruthie”, are always there to greet and advised on things to do. we can’t imagine staying any where else. thanks again, Tom, see ya next year. Sherry and Kurt Dillman
We are so grateful for our expanding family of repeat customers. Each has made the work seem like pleasure - and we look forward to their return each time.
Location, location, location
We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay in Boothbay Harbor. This house places you right downtown where all things fun-to-do happen. It's location is the best feature -- we were literally within walking distance of everything the bay has to offer. And when we weren't participating in the activities, we enjoyed just sitting on the lovely porch, overlooking the bay, and observing all the other tourists struggle to find a parking place.
The next best feature of the house is the porch. We sat for hours reading, knitting (me not him), and just people watching. Right from the porch you can see the harbor boats coming and going all day long. There's quite a bit of street noise but that just adds to the ambiance of being in the center of things.
Thirdly, our apartment was clean and comfortable -- a little quirky with its 1947 Kelvinator and the European washer/dryer -- the bed was very comfortable and being from Florida we loved being able to sleep with the windows and doors open letting in the ocean breeze.
Finally, our hosts (Tom and Ruthie) were a delight. Tom was very helpful and pleasant and even included us in a reception he held in the main part of the house. And, Ruthie (dog), was the greeter every time we came in the door. What a sweet dog she is -- I will miss her.
We loved BH -- we walked the entire city many times and sat on the opposite side of the bay for long periods. The Farmers Market is an additional surprise with great artisan breads and treats to purchase.
No doubt - if you go, you'll love it! We hope to return in the near future.
Best location to walk to all that Boothbay Harbor has to offer!
My wife and I stayed at 29 Mckown Street for three nights in June 2018. The location was the absolute best. From the second floor balcony, the view in the picture is exactly what you get. You are so close to the activities of the harbor yet far enough away to lose any noise or activity that might disturb you. The bed was very comfortable and the second floor unit had all that was necessary to make for a very cozy stay. All necessary utensils if you desired to make any meals, all linens, all other typical household items were supplied. This sure beats a single hotel room for comfort and the feeling of a home. We normally look for places out of town for the quietness, but this place has us rethinking that approach. It was so nice to get up, have coffee on the second floor deck, then walk off into the town to explore. After exploring, a short walk has you back at the unit with space and comfort to relax, regroup and plan more activities. We would not hestitate to come back here again.
Thanks for coming. I love it in town too. I hardly saw you both - you took advantage of so much to do. We'd love to have you back and earn our 5th star!!
Historic 3 season resort community with winter solitude. A place to finish the book you've had on the bedside forever, and unwind in small town charms. Welcoming locals where you can dress down and experience village life.
