I can't say enough good about our vacation. We were there the last week in August and the weather was beautiful. The house was absolutely beautiful and the flower gardens were an added treat. Our two children along with two of their friends, ages 20 and 21, loved it. Everyday, 2 or 3 times a day, they would walk into town to either shop or eat or just hang out. The town is just a five minute walk and can best be described as a quaint little harbor town. Great restaurants and shops, loved it. My sons favorite place was The Red Cup. Overall we all liked McSeagulls and Ports of Italy. We also used the grill a couple of times to make swordfish and salmon and even went into town to buy lobster from the wharf. We all took a drive to Ocean Point which was just breath taking, the kids brought their lunch and had a picnic. Great quality family time. Every night we sat at the kitchen table and played different games, and one of the nights we had a camp fire. Can't forget the kayaks that are on the property everyone loved those. Great memories were made that we will never forget. Thank you Alden and Karen for sharing your beautiful house with us. Hopefully we will be able to return.

Absolutely fantastic!!!! The house, the gardens, the view, the town, everything was wonderful. The owners make your stay the best it can be. We were four adults, four children, and a dog and had plenty of space in this gem of a house. The yard was great for the kids to run around and play. Being right on the water was perfect for afternoon kayak rides. We hope to be back here soon!!

If anyone is looking to create memories of a fantastic vacation in a beautiful setting, then this is it. This house and it's owners are absolutely wonderful. The house itself is about a 5 minute walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor (which is good because parking is limited in town), and is located on a idealic Maine harbor, surrounded by one of the most beautiful flower gardens I have ever seen. The decore in the home is fun and eclectic, and kitchen and baths are stocked with whatever one might need. We had 7 people sleeping in the home quite comfortably. The owners also made special arrangements to have a twin bed put on the main floor for one of our guests with walking difficulties. Showering options are currently limited (1 shower on 2nd floor, 1 outdoor shower) but I understand the owners may be adding a 2nd indoor shower soon.
In addition to using this wonderful home for our vacation get away we also used it as the setting for our wedding. Not only were the owners happy to allow us to have the wedding in the back garden, but they also acted as our event planners, chefs and pubic notary!! They did a wonderful job too. We had a lobster boil one night and a full service sit-down dinner the following night. The owners had a outdoor tent, dancefloor, PA system and linens/china delivered, and flower arrangements made mostly from the flowers in their garden. It was all perfectly done and the harbor provided a stunning backdrop to the wedding.
Overall, I can't say enough nice things about this place. If you are planning a trip to Boothbay Harbor with family and/or friends and need a place that accomodates a large group of people, then I would definitely book it. Boothbay Harbor is a great town with lots to do, particularly eating and shopping. There is also kayaking (kayaks provided by owners), beautiful hikes along the shore, whale watching and puffin boat tours, and an amazing botanical garden to visit. The owners, who are present on the property, are thoughtful and friendly, informative and willing to do what ever it takes to make your stay the best it can be.

This home and the beautiful gardens are a memorable experience for all that visit. The hosts were wonderful and always had answers and information for us regardless our questions. The property was very beautiful, top of the line applliances, plenty of cooking wares, close to town, relaxing and very clean.
The pictures don't reveal how lovely it really is. I would recommend this place in a minute because there just isn't a negative thing to say. I promise you'll be very happy there and with the landlords who bend over backwards to be sure you are satisfied. The town is also a must by the way.
