A beautiful spot for a wedding!

My fiancee (now husband!) and I, along with our families, rented both the farmhouse and cape house on this property for a week in early September. At the end of the week, we had a small wedding in the back yard, overlooking the beautiful Back River. We simply could not have asked for a better setting for our wedding!! The property is absolutely lovely, and the view of the Back River from the farmhouse is breathtaking. The houses are bold, colorful, and beautiful, as is the proprietor, Melissa! With 9 bedrooms between the two houses (5 in the farmhouse and 4 in the cape), each with a private bathroom, this place would be perfect for any large group! Finally, the location of this property is perfect- close enough to Boothbay Harbor to easily pop into town for shopping or dinner, but far enough out of town to get away from the hubbub and enjoy some peace and quiet!
Melissa is warm and welcoming, and makes you feel like family from the moment you arrive. What a beautiful place for a vacation, and a wonderful way to start our married life! Thanks Melissa!
Owner's Response: This was an awe-inspiring family. They rented the estate for a week, to enjoy a shared vacation, followed by a love-filled wedding. The bride and groom's families arrived early and spent the week enjoying the site...swimming and paddling in the cove...biking and running on the back roads...exploring the Boothbay peninsula...visiting the world-famous Botanical gardens and planning the final details of the intimate wedding....such harmony and concerted organization!
As the date grew near, the preparation for the wedding was a community event....everyone pitched in and helped, using their special areas of knowledge...setting up the tent and the tables, arranging the gorgeous flowers in the bride's colors--orange and yellow and purple...preparing the appetizers...organizing the caterers and musicians and officiant.
Then it was time for the devoted father to walk his beautiful daughter down the slope to the pond, and into her husband's arms...
an amazing success...an overwhelming vision of family love and loyalty...a truly memorable event for everyone who was involved...
Thanks for choosing us, Kelli and John!
