About James A. Smith

Sally and Jim Smith met in college and married in Georgetown in 1959. Jim graduated from Columbia Law School in 1961 and immediately joined Squire, Sanders & Dempsey headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Jim became a partner in the firm, specializing as a trial lawyer in complex corporate, banking and securities litigation. In the meantime, the Smith family became four, with the addition of Hugh and Sarah.

James A. Smith purchased this cabin in 1983

Why James A. Smith chose Boothbay Harbor

The Smths discovered Maine in 1969. We rented in the Boothbay Harbor region and came to think of Boothbay Harbor as our summer hometown. After years of renting summer cottages in the early 1980s, we started to look for our own cottage. When we first saw Moot Point in the fall of 1982, it was love at first sight. Since purchasing Moot Point, we have been improving it. After Jim retired in 1994, we started spending every summer at Moot Point. In 2008, we built a second cottage on the other side of Appalachee Road, and since that time, we have rented Moot Point when Hugh or Sarah and their families are not using it.

What makes this cabin unique

After looking at dozens of places, our Boothbay Harbor real estate agent drove us to Appalachee Shores. She stopped the car near the entrance - so that we could see Appalachee Pond in all its glory. Hundreds of various colored water lilies were in full bloom, like a Monet painting. When we got to the cabin, my breath was taken away. The shining wood beams and the massive stone fireplace presented an interior that was warm and welcoming. The view of Linekin Bay - just yards below us - was thrilling, more beautiful than we dreamed possible. And to be able to walk down our own path to our private dock and float meant that we could really be a part of Linekin Bay. Which turned out to be true. Over the years, at night we would go down to the float and lie on our backs. On a clear night we would watch the stars shoot across the dark, dark sky.

Charming Cabin in Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Moot Point Cottage in Boothbay Harbor was one of the best vacation experiences we've ever had. The log cabin is comfortable and loaded with charm and the view over the bay from the huge back porch is spectacular. We especially loved swimming in the freshwater pond just steps from the cabin, as the water was warm and it had a soft, sandy bottom. The location was ideal for us because the cabin is nestled in a woodsy area, yet it's very convenient to get to the bustle of Boothbay Harbor with so many great restaurants and shopping. By car it's only a few minutes and by foot a lovely, scenic walk of about 25 minutes. The owners of the cottage, the Smiths, live nearby and were friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. Moot Point is one of those rare places we enjoyed so much that we plan to return again and again.

Boothbay Harbor in summer is alive with lobster and fishing boats and scores of luxurious motor yachts and tall masted sail boats, all plying the waters of one of the largest and most beautiful harbors on the east coast. The Town has over 25 outstanding restaurants serving fine wines and cuisine, whether it be seafood, steak or Italian. Take one of the many excursion boats to see lighthouses, or to Burnt Island, Damariscove Island, or Monhegan, or to see the seals, puffins and whales. Go deep sea fishing for cod, mackerel, tuna, haddock or striped bass. Rent a kayak or a bike to explore, at your own pace, our gorgeous rocky coast. Take an evening sail on a Friendship Sloop or a schooner to watch the sun sink into the sea. Go to our historic Opera House to listen to nationally known artists play jazz, ragtime or the blues, or to the Boothbay Playhouse to enjoy a Broadway musical or play. Take your child to the Aquarium to see the lobsters, fish and other marine life that dwell beneath the surface of the sea, or to the Railway Village to ride on a narrow gauge steam train. Visit shops in town which offer high quality glass, pottery, traditional and designer clothing, handmade jewelry, gifts, toys and original art in almost every media. Enjoy locally handmade salt-water taffy, fudge or ice cream. Rest for a moment in our waterfront park, cross our historic footbridge, or drive our country roads to Southport, Boothbay, Edgecomb, East Boothbay and Ocean Point. Explore the over 30 miles of hiking trails maintained by our local land trust and see and hear many of Maine's most beautiful birds. Visit the spectacular 250 acre Coastal Maine Botanical Garden, one of the finest in the nation. Whatever you do, come to Boothbay Harbor - and live life as life should be lived!
