About the property

3 ac, 3 residence waterfront compound. Sleeps up to 14 - 16



Beautiful, high quality, unique, large waterfront property offers a high quality retreat.

Serving couples, and families groups looking for a special location.

The newly renovated property consists three distinct homes, a small private marina, large dock as well as a recreation field and abundant parking all on 3 private acres along a tranquil ocean cove paradise, a few hundred yards from the open seas.

The Boat House and Sea Studio buildings were completely rebuilt and renovated by award winning architects and designers and opened in the Summer of 2016.

The large, accessible site offers the ability for both group gathering, exploration and play inside and out - as well as privacy when you want to get away.

The "Boat House" is a modern, crafted gem offering 300 degrees of waterfront and views in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home. Perched on a dock 80' out on the water. Sleeps 4.

The "Sea Studio" is inspired by a ship captains suit to provide a private and perfect 600 sf studio with private deck and bath. The result is a romantic and beautiful retreat. Sleeps 2

The "Captains Quarters" provides a large family offering. It features 3+ bedrooms, 3 baths, large family-style living room to and smaller reading room, full kitchen, dining area for 10+. Sleeps 6 - 10

Full Site or individual Building rental are both possible depending on season and availability. Price varies based upon the accommodations.

While LRBC offers a unparalleled summer playground, spring, fall and even winter cannot be beat for the access to quiet natural beauty. The grounds are beautiful through all four seasons.

The Marina is small and private limited to a few LRBC members for the day-use of full season tenants only. There is a dock space and mooring reserved for our residential guests. Launch and keep your own small craft from here. Or, kayaks, row boats and open water rowing shells are available for on-site rental. Charter sail and power boats are available locally and can pick you up from here!

To stay connected: access the business grade high-speed internet, cable and flat screen tv's.

Oh yea: our beds are very high quality and special: made in Maine by the Portland Mattress Company and are super nice and comfy!

PLEASE NOTE: Rates vary based upon number of guests and residences selected. We encourage you to contact us for specific quotes based upon your custom accommodation.

About Mark M

We are SF Bay based family who love the outdoors. We are a family of 4: an architect (dad) and a university dean (mom) and two active teenage boys. With routes in the East Coast of the US, Europe and Southeast Asia we welcome connecting beautiful Maine with our global friends. ... also we love all outdoor activities. From LRBC we swim, sail, water ski, row, run and surf. Snowshoe and x-croutnry ski in the winter.

Mark M purchased this estate in 2014

Why Mark M chose Boothbay Harbor Area

It is a very special property, unlike any other in the Boothbay Region: it is large, beautiful vistas, sunrises, starry nights, lots of sun, privacy, land and water-based fun activities and range of accommodation types in one private site.

We have been coming to the Boothbay Region for 40+ years (first as kids and now as family). Finally, this past year we found the perfect retreat for our now large extended family that we share when we are not in town. Heck, we travel regularly from the Bay Area of California - thats how much we like this place.

What makes this estate unique

If you love the Ocean, have a group, want privacy and access to the water then this is the place to be:

The Little River Boat Club offers lots of accessible land and water making it a great place for family and guests to be together, but not on top of each other. Lots of special places inside and out. Views are every where. Is a big 'ol playground in the Summer and it is so quiet here in the Spring, Fall and Winter.

beautiful location, many new amenities, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We rented the boathouse and the captain's quarters for three families celebrating a family event. The boathouse is beautifully renovated with beautiful windows right on the water. Appliances, bathrooms and bedding were all new. The captain's quarters had plenty of space with updated beds/baths as well. The location was perfect, just about a 10 minute drive to the main area of Boothbay Harbor. Just down the road is a pretty scenic drive around the point and a great place that offered a breakfast buffet. Overall, even with a cool, cloudy weekend, we had a great time. The owner Mark offered many good suggestions of things to see and places to eat.

Beautiful spot for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The combo of a large compound and large waterfront deck combined with different houses gave us the place for our family to be together and privacy when we needed.

The Boat House and Sea Studio are renovated really well and are right on the water.

Also, Mark and his crew set us up well.

We will return!

Beautiful property in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property, and absolutely loved Boothbay. Would love to visit again. The property was a great place to relax and be alone, but there was plenty to do in town to keep the entire family busy. We would absolutely recommend it to a friend!

Better than we could have EVER imagined!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the "Little River Boat Club" while planning our LRBC September wedding! The Boat house, Studio and Captains Quarters were all amazing! We stayed in the Boat House and Studio and it had so much room and a beautiful view! Even in the fog and rain the LRBC was stunning! Mark was very helpful and I feel like we are old friends by now! He had someone meet us out there when we needed something and was easy to reach and prompt in his response! Mark also went above and beyond for recommendations and has pointed us towards wonderful locals!! This VRBO deserves more than 5 stars and we cant wait to be back in September for the week! Thanks again Mark!

Fantastic spot for family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a week at the Little River Boat Club. This vacation rental is actually a collection of 3 buildings on a beautiful piece of waterfront property. The purpose of the trip was my husband's birthday and the celebrants included my parents, our sons, their wives, and four grandchildren. The ages ranged from 10 to 91 and there were 12 of us in total.

The Sea Shack is a newly constructed studio unit built on pilings at the river's edge. Our two granddaughters, aged 17 and 20, absolutely adored having this space to themselves. The Boat House consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms on two floors, and a kitchen and sitting area. The Boat House is at the end of the dock so you feel as though you are part of the marina and boats at anchor. This building is also new, or newly renovated. The Captain's Quarters has a kitchen and living room on the lower level, with a full bath and laundry. The middle floor has two bedrooms which share a bath, and there is a 3rd floor bedroom with bath. In retrospect, we and my parents should have shared the boat house, and our younger son and his family should have shared the two adjoining bedrooms with one bath. This is an older home with an awkward floor plan and has yet to be renovated to the level of the other two buildings. However, it did serve us well and we usually all gathered in this main house for breakfast and lunch. If the weather suits, dinner on the large deck area at the Boat House, overlooking the river, is where you want to be!

An added bonus is the nearby East Boothbay General Store and Elizabeth Evans. She prepared a very generous specialty gift basket provided by the owner, provisioned the house with additional snacks and wine at my request, and catered meals which were as good as anyone could wish for. Boothbay Harbor with all its restaurants, shops, and activities is an easy 10 minute drive.
