"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.
