The Gray Family has been on Southport Island for six generations. First settled and built by my Great Great Grandfather Captain Charles Gray. His sons, my Great Grandfather and my Great Uncle, later added on with the intention of running the Point of View as an Inn. Sidney Gray, my Great Grandfather, and his brothers spent countless hours in the shop building wooden boats and furniture. Most of the wood work and furniture in the house are hand made by the men of the Gray family.

Tim or Rebecca purchased this house in 1895

My wife and I, following in the family tradition, are new managers for the Point of View. We have spent our first year coating the walls with paint and repairing the damage age inevitably does. All the beds have brand new mattress covers, new high quality cotton percale linens, and brand new pillows. We have outfitted the beds with L.L. Bean down comforters (in some rooms). Other rooms have allergy free comforters. Now in our second season, we continue to work the grounds and beautify the property as we follow the tradition of caretaking this family legacy property.

This is the ONLY place where you can house AND seat all guests. Delight your family in a private dining hall equipped with place settings for up to 24 guests. This is the best deal in Boothbay Harbor!

Lounge on our Large porch with your friends and family to watch the sun rise and watch the ships sail by. Enjoy the Sun deck for ray catching and a Nice lawn for croquet (included). Plus much more.

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This is a charming, funky (in a good sense), rambling old house with many many rooms, great for exploring, enchanting, fabulous views from the rooms. A very memorable place surrounded by nice gardens, rocks and mossy old spruce trees. There's a room full of National Geographics going back to the 1930s, a library with a lot of peculiar old books, a room with a card table for poker and what-not. The dining room is enormous, plenty of room for our party of 19 with a few guests, and the place was well stocked with the necessary dishes etc. Gas grill, laundry, etc.--all the mod cons. You can rent kayaks on the spot and go paddling up beautiful bays. As a previous reviewer noted, the restrictions on the beach seemed idiotic, tho not so surprising, I guess, liability asininity being what it is... also, it's important to note that beach access is not mentioned in the listing, so it isn't as though one is being ripped off. I think Tim and Rebecca are trying to get a deal worked out that will allow visitors to use the beach in the future. Also, there are many other beaches short drives away so that didn't really turn into an issue for us. I would also like to say that the owners and managers of the house were extremely flexible and displayed a relaxed and kindly attitude toward us. They also responded quickly to any needs we had such as a few extra ice trays. My family has done these reunions annually for the past 16 years in various parts of the US of A, and this was probably the best experience we've had.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 of 5
Overall a lovely property. The house sits on a hill and your view of the water is also of the view of the tops of RVs from the campground sites. Also, there is a lovely beach at the end of the road but you are not permitted there because of campground owner hiding behind lawyers. Great porch with lots of rockers/large bench was the favorite hang out spot. Huge dining hall made it wonderful to all eat together (we had 21 people), kitchen is small but workable. Had to utilize dorm size refrigerator for overflow food and drinks. Rooms were furnished nicely, though there is not one room to seat many people to sit and talk in the evenings. Our only negative is that there are only 3 showers, two baths have tubs and the 1/2 bath is down in a very musty basement and was not used. Tim and Rebecca were very helpful and pleasant to do business with.
