About The Owner

Known as Eleanor & Pete Yes, we retired here in Maine and drove local school busses. Pete’s job before he retired included extensive travel throughout North America and other countries. Eleanor was a stay at home Mom with a lot of interesting part time jobs such as dog officer, welcome wagon hostess, school bus driver ( 36 years wow! ), newspaper reporter, and dog groomer. We sold our two acre 200 year old farm in MA to retire to Maine and built a new home in the heart of the Mid Coast, and we love it here and want to have you enjoy it too..

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose East Boothbay

We chose the area of the Boothbay region for it’s uniqueness: we are a community of boat builders, fishermen, beautiful islands, rocky shoreline with some sandy beaches, unusual seabirds, a gorgeous new Botanical Gardens, quaint shops, great restaurants for unusual dining of fresh seafood along with standard fare, lots of wonderful hiking trails, and lovely conservation areas.

What makes this house unique

When we had our home built on the coast in East Boothbay 21 years ago, we added a unique benefit in the form of an “in-law” apartment for Eleanor’s Mom. After she passed on, we decided it would be fun to share our wonderful world here with those who have never seen the Maine Coast, or those who love it the way we do! The apartment has been updated with new furnishings, kitchen appliances etc. and we delight in taking our guests off-shore in our 32 ft lobster-style yacht to see the islands, quaint coves, lighthouses, and harbors.

Counting the Days

  • 5 of 5

This spring will be our 3rd trip to Eleanor and Pete's wonderful efficiency apartment. The studio is very clean and neat, it is furnished with everything we have needed for our stays, from kitchen supplies to towels and bed linens, with comfortable beds and sitting area. The studio is located in a beautiful - quiet area, as you are eating breakfast be sure to look out and see the wild turkeys as they take their morning stroll. The deck is the perfect spot to have a lobster bake after you take in the beautiful sunset on Ocean Point. The location is ideal, you could easily spend a week just exploring the beautiful local areas - the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Peninsula, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and the Maritime Museum in Bath, for starters. Eleanor and Pete are extremely welcoming and helpful with anything you may need to plan your stay, their boat rides and tours have been a highlight of our trips. Our only regret is we did meet Eleanor and Pete and find this lovely place sooner. We are already looking forward to our 2016 visit.

Snug and cosy place for two!

  • 5 of 5

Eleanor & Pete are wonderful! They make sure you have everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Totally agree with the other reviews about quiet location with plenty to see and do just minutes away. We enjoyed many sunsets sitting out at Ocean Point during our 2 week stay and would see Eleanor & Pete enjoying them also. It just proves that you never get tired of the view! We had a wonderful time out on their boat! You get to see wonderful sites not available on land! They have great info on the area's history and attractions. My husband says we are "shooting ourselves in the foot" by revealing this gem. Thanks Eleanor and Pete!!!!!

Great place for one!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Boothbay for a destination wedding and this was a great place to stay. Away from the hubbub but 5 minutes to be in the middle of it. Comfy, clean and fully furnished Eleanor thinks of everything.

She and her husband open their full property including a fabulous afternoon boating for me and two friends. We toured the islands and harbors enjoying the sights, the company and the beautiful Maine coastlines.

If you're seeking an affordable and comfortable, tranquil setting, this is it!

Australians in East Boothbay

  • 5 of 5

After traveling from Australia to experience 10 days in Maine, we were overjoyed to find Eleanor and Pete's apartment situated in the woods near the still waters of Little River. Upon arrival we were driven around the local area to get our bearings. Later, we were taken aboard Eleanor and Pete's boat for two half-day trips out on the water. Such gracious and hospitable owners! An added bonus were the lobsters that could be bought from a nearby jetty and cooked on the deck at the apartment. We would thoroughly recommend staying in this quiet, comfortable apartment when in East Boothbay.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay! Our purpose for the trip to Boothbay was so my daughter could attend the Marine Science camp, but we ended up feeling like we were staying with family! I stayed in the efficiency for a total of four nights, my daughter was with me the first and last night, before and after camp. The apartment had every thing I needed and was quaint and very quiet. Pete offered to drop me off, by boat, with my bike on Southport so I could do a loop of the island and bike back one day. They also generously took me to pick my daughter up from her camp by boat on the last day. Then took us on a wonderful cruise with a stop in Boothbay for ice creams at the Ice Cream Factory. I was relieved that Pete finally agreed to let me pay, they had already been so generous! Elenor even shared her doll collection with my daugher. She was enthralled! If you are looking for a convenient, well equiped, quiet rental with hosts that are unbelievabley kind, you can't go wrong with this location and hosts!
