About Dana Twombly

My wife and 2 daughters live in Maine and purchased the boathouse as a vacation/future retirement property. Our intention is to offer weekly rentals to pre qualified professional couples in the summer and also longer term rental to the right person in the winter.

Dana Twombly purchased this house in 2013

Why Dana Twombly chose West Boothbay Harbor

The Boathouse boasts one of the best locations in Boothbay Harbor with a owned deep water dock located very close to all downtown Boothbay harbor has to offer. Wake up to the sounds of lobster boats pulling their traps just off the front of the property. Boothbay is such a fun town with so much to do for all ages! We have a lot of wildlife including seals and a resident Bald Eagle.

What makes this house unique

All the furnishings were hand elected by us to fit with the Boat house theme. The view from the property is outstanding. Its orientation is to the east for great sunrises and sunsets are also great off the rear of the house. As an added bonus a urgent care is located in easy walking distance if medical attention should be needed

A True “Maine” Attraction

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Boothbay for the past 10 years and this was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The location was absolutely perfect overlooking the heart of Boothbay Harbor. The owners greeted us and made us feel welcome and at home. The property is breathtaking and decorated right out of a magazine. We loved the history of this renovated boathouse that the owners had a love to restore. There is something for everyone here whether it is fishing off the dock, paddleboarding, kayaking, or curling up with a book on the adirondacks. Plus, it was so wonderful waking up to the panoramic views of the harbor and the lobstermen at work. Just a short walk into town and you are in the heart of all the shops and restaurants of downtown. This is a true gem and we will never forget the memories we made here. We hope to rent this property again in the future. We highly recommend this property. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us! The Bryan Family

Relaxing Family vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

You really cannot appreciate the house or the view until you witness it first hand. Everything is done top notch both inside and out.Very Private yet just a short walk or drive to the main town. The house has everything one would need and the area is very relaxing. Fishing, swimming and kayaking right off the dock. I can't think of one thing I would change.

Boothbay itself is a quaint spot with great shopping and restaurants.

We will return without a doubt in 2017.
