About the property

Very special and highly rated Waterfront family retreat.

LRBC in a beautiful, high quality, private and unique, retreat on a large waterfront property.

Our specialty is serving families groups, academic or business teams looking for a special location to accommodate meaningful events.

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 waterfront paradise.

The Boat House and Sea Studio buildings were recently completely rebuilt and renovated by award winning architect and designer team

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" is more family style. 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 San Francisco 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

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.

Wonderful private spot on the Maine Coast

  • 5 of 5

We had a full family of 16 and the property handled us very well. Little River is a special spot. Close to the ocean but protected. Lobster boats coming and going. Could not be more "Maine Coast." Dock is brand new and much better than shown in the picture. Great for kayaks, paddle boards and swimming. We will be back.

Idyllic Maine

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous accommodations in a serene coastal setting. We enjoyed morning yoga on the dock, watching the lobster boats bring in traps, kayaking around the cove & exploring the Boothbay region.

LRBC the new East Boothbay Wedding Hot Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This may be a long review.. but it is worth the read to understand the quality of this rental!

First off, Mark Miller was amazing to work with. When I approached him about having a wedding at LRBC he was thrilled and offered to help with many things including local recommendations! Mark went above and beyond letting me know about the property and even let us rent the little boat house for a quick visit in April to scout things out!

LRBC held two large families for an entire week and then an entire wedding party! The Boat house is fabulous and we used it for cookouts, welcome parties and to just take in the beauty of the Little River. The Captains Quarters was a great home base and used by our caterer to cook the food! We had a tent brought in and it made LRBC look like a dream world! Anything we asked about Mark had an answer or a guy who could help us out! The local boaters who dock at LRBC marina were so helpful and EVEN cut the grass for us (ERIC WAS A HERO!!!)

Our families loved every second of staying at LRBC. Each guest commented that it was the perfect spot! I cant thank Mark enough for letting me transform his beautiful home and for giving me the flexibility to make it my own while keeping the Maine charm! Not only was Mark and Eric and others helpful but it was also like dealing with friends! We will definitely be back with our families and encourage you to experience what LRBC has to offer... we even know that our guests will be booking LRBC in the future as well!

Thank you Mark and Eric! We loved our stay at LRBC and had the best day of our lives while there!!

Great location but property is a mixed bag

  • 3 of 5

Coastal Maine is lovely and this property is right on the water in a great location for exploring a lot of the coast. Be aware that the Captain's Quarters building is a huge step down from the other two and is a great disappointment.


*great views

*direct water access

*great dock/deck for sitting, grilling, eating, socializing

*Sea Studio building is stunningly renovated, just beautiful

*good looking renovations on the Boathouse


*no screens on the giant glass sliding doors of the Boathouse, so in order to get fresh air, you also get a lot of flies and mosquitos

*the Boathouse kitchen looks nice but is not actually very good for cooking

*the Captain's Quarters is not renovated, but the disappointment of this house is beyond that -- it's musty, smelly, and uninviting; the kitchen is bleak; there is essentially no outside seating space to take advantage of the views; the layout is very odd with weird uses of the large space (tears actually rolled down my face when I first walked into this property and realized this is where my family would spend the week)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful comments and notes. Very appreciative of your inputs. We do strive to promote the variety of the different accommodations - from the luxury of the Sea Studio and the Boat House and the family style condition of the Captains Quarters and price accordingly.
