This property has a truly wonderful location overlooking the Boothbay Harbor, with restaurants, shops, and tours all close by the front door. The landlord Tom and 4-legged companion Ruthie were very friendly and helpful and responsive to all our questions and needs. We had relaxing days and busy days depending on our mood. We boiled live lobsters on two nights and they were great. We would recommend that visitors seek out the Maine State Aquarium on Southport Island and the South Maine Botanical Garden which we found to be special places. We couldn't have selected a property which better suited our needs for this week.
Another respectful and delightful set of guests determined to have fun and always welcome back.
Absolutely fantastic location and host!!
Third floor apartment in lovely vintage home. Small balcony overlooking the bay! Everything in walking distance. Just beautiful and not enough time to do everything. Tom was great host with pages of suggestions, and his darling Westie, Ruthie, makes u feel welcome. Highly recommend this venue.
Thank you for your kind words!
Great view of the harbor. Very clean Tom was very helpful for area dining and local sights
Really amazing weekend. Great place. Clean and friendly. Tom was extremely helpful and we enjoyed every minute
Just live going to grandmother's.
The apartment was just what we expected and wanted. Lots of room, well appointed, just a door step away from food and fun. Good beds and our own parking slot. We had a great relaxing week visiting with relatives and chasing light houses. Will stay again when we are in the area.
You had such a busy schedule we hardly got to know you. I'm so glad you used this as your base to return home to family. Please do come again.
Great location for downtown
Property was very neat and clean and very convenient. Off street parking was a plus, but be ready for 3rd floor walk up to the apartment. We kept the deck doors open every night and never had to use the A/C. House renovation construction across the street was somewhat noisy but only between 8 and 3:30pm. Owner Tom was on site daily and very accessible for questions and recommendations on where to eat and shop. Loved his dog Ruthie!!! The kitchen is small and the stove not easy to cook on, but lots of places to eat all meals within short walking distance. We joined the Boothbay Harbor Country Club for the week and played golf there every day. It is spectacular. Also took our family (maximum 6 people) on a sail on the Sarah Mead, a friendship sloop that leaves from Spruce Point Inn 4 times a day and goes to several lobster traps so the kids can see how lobstering is done. Our grandkids 6 and 10 also loved the Maine Aquarium.
Thank you for your stay and your comments. Yes - two flights (to floor 3) - but then the views over the harbor are fabulous and most guests there feel it's worth it. I was a bit surprised about the stove which is full sized on that floor (apartment sized on floor 2) - and it's like a lot of things in the building - in perfect condition (practically never used by guests) and vintage like me. Ruthie accepts the compliments - she has enjoyed the guests as much as they her. Come again soon.
Great week. Great host.
We had a great week in Boothbay Harbor. Our host Tom answered many of our questions and was incredibly helpful. Our property was centrally located where we could walk to everything. It was a great week.
Wonderful people - and we'd love to have you back.
