Boothbay Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3-4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 6 (summer rates based on 6)

Experience all that Summer or Fall in Maine offers! New Boothbay Peninsula custom cape with Sheepscot River frontage, fifteen minutes from Boothbay Harbor, Wiscasset (prettiest village in Maine) and Damariscotta. House offers air conditioning, wood burning fireplace, hardwood floors, granite kitchen counters and ceramic tiled baths. Area offers fine restaurants and beaches, great kayaking, and numerous whale watching, deep sea fishing and sight seeing excursion boats. Visit the renowned Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, or go antique hunting. Watch lobster boats haul traps in front of the property, or launch your kayak from the Association dock a short walk from the house and explore the Sheepscot.

Modern Luxury: This custom cape was built in the fall of 2006. As you enter the large foyer, to the left through French doors is the kitchen, dining and living area that opens to the spacious 14' x 22' deck. Right of the foyer is a large laundry room, and then a self contained bedroom / bath suite. Upstairs is the master bedroom/bath suite, a small bedroom and a third large bedroom/bath suite. Floor plans available.

Solitude Yet Close To Town: The house is accessed via either Mill Rd ( from Route 27) or Cross Point Rd (from Route 1), which are idyllic country roads with water vistas. The house sits on a 2 acre lot. No highway noise can be heard, and at night no lights are visible from the opposite shore. Peace and quiet are the norm at the house, yet it is only 15 minutes to Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta or Wiscasset.

Designed To Please: The house design allows each of the 3 large bedrooms to be isolated from the rest of the house, with each having a private bathroom. Accordingly, the house is ideal for an extended family or 3 independent couples vacationing together. Multiple users can access the wireless Internet service simultaneously via laptops. Additional photos available on request.

About Joseph Walsh

Joe first came to the Boothbay during his high school and college years, spending the summers of 1967-72 working at Burleigh Hill, a boys' sailing camp owned and operated by Joe's junior high school gym teacher and coach, Lester Rhoads. Burleigh Hill operated as a camp from 1955 to 1975, and was also a registered yacht club that each summer competed against other state and New England yacht clubs. After the camp ceased operations, Joe continued to vacation at the former camp property with his family (wife Marian and sons Colin and Pete) as a guest of the owner until the owner's death in 2000. In 2004, Joe and Marian purchased the Quarry Farm property that is about 4 miles away from Burleigh Hill and built the house in 2006. Joe and Marian practice law together with one other partner.

Joseph Walsh purchased this house in 2006

Why Joseph Walsh chose Boothbay Harbor

Joe has been associated with Boothbay since 1967 and has spent at least a part of each summer since then in the region. Joe introduced Marian to the region in 1985. When the former Burleigh Hill property was sold by the heir of Lester Rhoads in 2001, Joe and Marian continued to vacation in the region for several years, and then decided to buy their own property. Joe and Marian and the boys first viewed the Quarry Farm property on a bitterly cold January day, but everyone immediately said 'this is it'. Over the fireplace mantel, the Burleigh Hill Yacht Club Burgee continues to fly!

What makes this house unique

Some of the major factors that attracted the family to this property are its proximity to the major population centers of Boothbay Harbor, Wiscasset and Damariscotta, and yet the house enjoys an incredibly peaceful, quiet and idyllic setting overlooking the Sheepscot River with almost 180 degree views up and down the river from the property. At night, there are no lights to be seen across the river, as the opposite shore remains largely undeveloped. The night sky, with little ambient light, highlights the stars. The two roads that access the property from either Route 1 or Route 27 can also be truly described as scenic; the Mill Road winds and turns and offers views of river coves at two points, while the Cross Point Road runs along the Sheepscot River for most of its length. A stay at the property thus allows each day to begin and end in a very private and peaceful way, yet the day itself can be spent enjoying the many things to do and see in Mid Coast Maine.

Immmaculate Way Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This house is immaculate way beyond expectations. Owners have obviously lavished it with care. The linens, towels, and bedding were of good quality. Dishes, glassware and flatware were of excellent quality. The appliances were top of the line. The only negatives I would mention are the lack of ceiling fans, and no reading lamps or nightstands by the beds. We purchased a fan, large mixing bowl, potato peeler, and small lamps at the nearest Wal Mart. For those with the room in their vehicle, a crock pot would be nice. If you went on a trip each day, your meal would be ready when you return in the evening. Restaurants in the area we particularly enjoyed were Sarah's, Reds Eats, and Treats (excellent chicken pies that are available for take out along with soups, sandwiches, etc.) all in Wiscasset. We did not enjoy Bintliffs. In Bath, we particularly liked J.R. Maxwells on the main shopping street downtown. The owners were concerned about making the house comfortable and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet and beautiful vacation spot. Members of our party enjoyed Kayaking, Whale Watches, Botanical Gardens, Outlet Shopping, the many Lobster Pounds in the area and visiting Acadia National Park. The locals were extremely friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Owner will provide window fans for future guests, though generally evening temperatures quickly drop to comfortable levels, and house has over 50 large windows for ventilation. Night stands and additional lamps will be added in the near future (looking for suitable antique or custom made tables).

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending vacations in the Mid-Coast region of Maine for 30 years. This home has to be at the top of our list! The location is beautiful and convenient for day trips. The spacious home is comfortable and in pristine condition, and it's perfect for a family or -- as with our trip -- two couples. We had plenty of privacy, and everything we needed or wanted was available to us. The owner, Joe, was wonderful to work with and most helpful. We will definitely stay there again and will recommend it to our family and friends!

Peaceful Retreat in Coastal Maine

  • 5 of 5

My family (myself, husband, 23-yr-old daughter, 26-yr-old son) spent a week at this lovely home, venturing out for day trips and returning to the house for wine on the deck, home-cooked dinner, ping-pong and star-gazing. The house and region offered just what I was looking for in a family vacation, with a balance of trips/activities and peace + quiet.

Memorable meals included Shaw's in New Harbor and The Damariscotta River Grill. We explored the Maine Botanical Gardens, Pemaquid Lighthouse (and beach), Monhegan Island and hiking trails at Dodge Point. All of these restaurants and activities came recommended and summarized by the owner, Joe. We also enjoyed kayaking, pottery shopping and mini-golf. My son even played a round of golf at a nearby golf course. The ping-pong table at the house was an unexpected bonus and a bit hit with us. Great family time!

The house is comfortable, spacious and well-maintained. Thanks to Joe, this felt like a real home to me and not just a rental. I appreciated that he was always prompt, friendly and helpful when dealing with us. We loved it, highly recommended!

House and Boothbay Area Were Great

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this house for the last five years and it keeps getting better. We love the Boothbay Harbor area - boat rides, kayaking, gardens, lobster docks, etc.. We had an absolutely perfect week (Aug. 2-9) in Maine this year. Weather was cool and sunny, with just a few hours of rain. The house was, as usual, in great condition. The new air conditioner(added just this year) is the perfect complement to Maine's normally pleasant weather - we needed A/C only one slight hot afternoon, but it was gentle, quiet, and effective.

The house is also equipped with a generator that automatically cuts in whenever it detects a power outage. The generator maintenance company came on Thursday to fix a couple of problems that the cold winter had caused. Apparently, their work was thorough because we had a 2-hour power outage on Friday afternoon and the generator performed beautifully. The pumps stayed on, the refrigerator stayed on, and we had at least one light on each floor. In an amazing bonus, both the toaster oven and microwave also worked.

Best house we've ever rented in our 15 years of coming to Maine. Our three little families truly treasure this place.

Enjoyable, beautiful, we loved everything!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is equipped with everything one could think for,( even more as the descriptin said) and if there is still a wish, be sure denise, the perfect housekeeper, or joseph is always there for you. Everything worked properly, was new and well-maintained.The communication was perfect and promptly, the cleanliness spotless. We had an enjoyable and recreational time, doing whale watching, harbour cruises and couldn't do everything what nature offers there. Groceries, drugstore restaurants all very close, and Joseph provides a lot of information. We can definitely recommend this property allthough I almost wish to keep it a secret hideaway. Anyway we can't wait to come back, as we enjoyed our stay in this home away from home very much. thank you!!!

Perfect Home for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home and property are even more beautiful than the pictures suggest. This is a perfect location - tranquil riverfront, but convenient to many sites in mid-coast Maine. The house is immaculate and well-stocked. We only needed to bring our clothes. The open floor plan was convenient for spending family time, but the bedroom and bathroom suites gave everyone their own space.

The location is perfect for exploring mid-coast Maine. We made side trips to Freeport, Rockport, Camden and Damariscotta as well as frequent trips to Boothbay Harbor. A visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens was a highlight.

Communication with the owners was seamless and they provided numerous extra pictures and much helpful information. We highly recommend this property for a memorable family vacation and hope to make a return visit.
