About Karen Pritchard

Originally from England, worked on Holland America Line Cruises as British Ballroom Dance Champion before landing in Florida. Visiting friends in Boothbay, I fell in love with the area, it's heritage, the people, and of coarse the charm and beauty of the town. Each year we stay longer from May-Oct to enjoy each season as one becomes more beautiful than the one before. It truely is a slice of heaven.

Karen Pritchard purchased this condo in 2011

Why Karen Pritchard chose Boothbay Harbor

Purchased this property because it reminded me of my youth in England. Visiting my Grandmother who had a house similar in age, 1890's. It's bright and full of sunshine and we love to open all the windows and enjoy the fresh air that Maine offers.

What makes this condo unique

This quaint costal town is lined with lobster boats in the bay, fabulous restaurants and shops in town and over 30 miles of hiking trails. A pictureque historic 1.000 ft footbridge which connects the east and west sides of the inner harbor, great for walking to Barrett's Park where you can picnic, swim and sunbathe. We also have New England's largest Botanical Gardens filled with sculptures and trails with over 250 waterfront and woodland trails to enjoy. Discover by car the many Lighthouses including the ever popular Pemaquid Point Light built in 1827. Not to forget the Artists and Sculptures, Writers, Musicians & Performers that share their work with the community.

Abundant events thoughout the year in town festivals, local bars and great musical theatres makes it the perfect place for you to absorb all the beauty that the peninsula of Boothbay Harbor affords.

Boothbay Harbor has also one of the best-known boating centers in New England. The harbor has over 20 excursion boat trips daily in season. Grab a picnic and go to near-by Islands, or take the shoreline wildlife watching tour or the ever popular Whale siteseeing trips. Don't forget the fishing trips, canoeing or board surfing available right in town.

Rain or Shine there is always something to do from Museums, Live Theatre Shows, to Visiting the many Lighthouses or great shopping at stores filled with Local quality hand made items to locally made taffy or the maple flavored popcorn. Missing the gym head to the Local YMCA to swim, workout or play sports, Yoga or Zumba Classes.

What's really nice is not having to drive to town to enjoy the local bands, an evening meal, maybe an ice-cream and walk 5 mins to home, PERFECT!

Great fresh Lobster at local restaurants or perhaps you might find a treasure at the weekend Yards sales or Antique auctions. Newly reconstructed Golf coarse in BBH & visit the weekly town market for the freshest locally grown foods.

Whatever your pleasure it's here in Boothbay Harbor.

Great property, highly recommend, excellent value.

  • 5 of 5
Happy to say we have become regulars at this condo. The location is fantastic, a few minutes walk from BBH but away from the noise of the bars, and with a lovely view across Mill Cove. We prefer the 2nd floor two bedroom unit which is perfect for a couple we have plenty of room to spread out and an extra bed for any snoring issues, plus the view from the covered deck is lovely. The owners, Karen and Julie, are fantastic hosts - friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. They continue to update the property and refresh the décor - new windows and ceiling fan this year and some new furniture. This is not your typical drab, grimy vacation rental furnished with Grandma's rejects, this place couldn't be any cleaner, is well equipped and the décor is bright, cheerful and modern beach-y. Always plenty to do in BBH and surroundings - we are already planning for next year.

Wonderful, relaxing, beautiful vacation condo

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in the one bedroom condo twice now, August's 2013 and 2014. We loved it! The accommodations are well appointed, clean, and quiet.
Boothbay Harbor is a busy tourist town, and there's plenty to do. The condos are in an area away from the main part of the harbor, on a separate Cove. It's quiet and peaceful. There's a nice deck to sit on with views of Mill Cove, yard with picnic table, gas grill, and fire pit.
Local things that we enjoyed doing include swimming at several local swimming areas, visiting lighthouses, renting standup paddle boards in the harbor (easier than we thought it would be), and visiting the Maine coastal botanical gardens. We took an evening sailing cruise on the schooner Eastwind and visited other local towns for day trips. There are plenty of restaurants in Boothbay Harbor that are friendly to gluten-free or people with food allergies. Each time we stayed for a week in Boothbay Harbor, we also visited Bar Harbor and Acadia for a couple of days midweek (three hours up the coast).
We can also echo the other reviewer's comments on the gracious hosts, Karen and Julie. They greeted us with flowers and a basket of goodies.

Charming spot

  • 5 of 5
The view was wonderful, beds comfortable, and just the right amount of space for two. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit and found it to meet all our needs. We especially enjoyed the deck. Karen is a perfect hostess and was great to deal with. If we return to Boothbay Harbor - we will be booking our stay with Karen-need I say more.

Quaint Condo

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed our week in Boothbay Harbor. The condo had everything we could want or need. It was a perfect short walk into town. Karen was very helpful and attentive. She helped us pick between lighthouses to visit, and even left us a printout with description and directions! Check out the Bath Maritime Museum, only a 30 minute drive from Boothbay.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week in the downstairs one-bedroom apartment. We're spoiled now. Anywhere else we rent will be judged against this vacation property. Karen and Julie were wonderful hosts. From the vase of fresh flowers on the dining table, to the lovely welcome basket, to the bright and cheery decor, to the super comfy bed, to the oodles of bath products, and to even a copy of the weekly paper----they've thought of everything to make the unit a home away from home! I especially appreciated having a washer and dryer a few steps away since we were on a 3 week trip. For those who drink tea, there was an electric kettle, so one didn't have to use the coffee maker to brew funny tasting tea. There was even a small collection of cookbooks! Karen graciously lent us her cell phone so we could make tee times or order a cooked lobster for pickup at Atlantic Edge when we couldn't get reception on our T-Mobile phone. And it's really a lifesaver that she lives upstairs if you go out for the evening and leave the key inside your room! If we ever vacation in Maine again, Mill Cove House will definitely be our first choice for a Boothbay Harbor stay.

Things to Do and See in and Around Boothbay Harbor:-

If you’re looking for the authentic mid-coast Maine experience, this is it. Perhaps the most scenic body of ocean water on the eastern seaboard, mid-coast Maine features scores of islands, historic lighthouses, quiet little protected harbors and towns offering clothing and craft shops, art galleries and restaurants. A wild life paradise; ospreys and bald eagles nest high in the spruces along the rugged shores, harbor seals complete their annual pilgrimage to quiet coves and dolphins and whales loll about in the waves.

Outings: Take a day and visit Arcadia National Park, or one of the many lighthouses on the coast. Go to the outlet Mall in Freeport or visit the Ironworks at Bath for a great historical look into the making of the great steamships of a bygone era. Wiscasset is filled with museums from the old sea captains to the incredible music box museum.

Great trails for walkers, parks for swimming and picnics, the local Y for swimming, yoga, workout spinning even dance classes, museums and craft fairs. Were located only 5 min walk from town and yet far enough away to enjoy a peaceful and picturesque view over the cove not to miss the the evening sunsets on your own private balcony. Once you've stayed here you won't want to go home! See you soon in Beautiful Boothbay Harbor.
