We are seniors renting our retirement home. James and I handle the reservations and road maps --(if required) and my daughter Becky and husband Kevin handle everything else. Homeaway does our listing and help us in handling things needed.

Sharon Poff purchased this apartment in 2010

Having this home available for our retirement gives us a peaceful feeling.

The home is located on a dead-end ocean inlet. The ocean is a short distance away. A 7 or 8 minute walk.

Downtown Boothbay Harbor is less than 5miles away.

An Irving station and the big grocery store is located less than 3 miles.

Traffic is minimal. There are no young children but within 2miles there is a beautiful town playground.

Occasional owl hoots disturbs the night's peace. Ha!

GREAT ESCAPE THATS CLOSE TO TOWN!

  • 5 of 5
House was great, everything seems brand new! Screened in part of the deck was perfect for morning reading and after dinner Uno games. Location is ideal, just a quick drive into Boothbay Harbor, grocery store, etc are even closer.

Wish we could've stayed longer, thanks!

OUR THIRD VISIT @ THE POFF MAHAL

  • 4 of 5
We, love this apt.
Everything is well kept and decorated lovely.
The location, is nice and quiet, yet only a 10 min. drive , to the harbor.
We, made good use of the large screened in porch.
It was unusually hot, for Maine.
There was a portable, rolling air conditioner in the master bedroom, but could not cool the whole apt.
Plus, the air conditioner was very noisy, but better than not having one.
I, do recommend, that a room size air conditioner be put in the small bedroom, and could blow out and off the living room wall, to cool the rest of the apt.
There probably wouldn't be many times that it would be used, but nice to have if needed.
Thanks, again for letting us stay, in your apt.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy. Thanks for your good review. You have a great idea about the window conditioner . It seems like the summers have been extra warm these past couple years. It used to be that you were cool in the night even after a hot day. The cool breeze from the bay was all we needed. Anyways, we shall have one put in by the time you come again. Thanks for your input. So helpful. Sharon

GREAT PLACE, NICE PEOPLE

  • 5 of 5
This sunny, airy place was an absolute gem! Immaculate, comfortable, quiet, and a short drive into town. The "Poff Mahal" worked well for us (myself, husband, and two kids - ages 2.5 and 9 months). We brought along our pack and play for the baby, and our older son slept comfortably in the twin bed.

Our flight was cancelled due to inclement weather conditions, and Sharon was not only very responsive to our frantic and last minute correspondences but was also able to accomodate our travel changes. I love that the entire family is involved - Sharon managed the reservation, her husband James gave us great directions and tips, and Becky and her husband made sure we were happy and comfortable during our stay. Becky even left us some veggies from the garden with a nice note. What hospitality, and what a truly wonderful bunch of people!!!!!

The enclosed porch was a highlight. We cooked our meals or brought lobster in from town and enjoyed relaxing dinners on the porch.

P.S. If you have kids, there's a fantastic playground just a mile or so away.

THE PERFECT VACATION RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We vacationed here in July, and could not have found a nicer place to stay. The apartment was just beautiful & had everything needed to be comfortable. Upon arrival, we found the best chocolate chip cookies ever that the owner had left for us..what a nice surprise for hungry travelers!

The view from every room is outstanding. The rooms are so nicely decorated and well kept. We felt at home from the moment we arrived, and the owners went out of their way to help us navigate around town. We arrived early am (2:00) & accomodiations were made for that as well.

From the beginning to the end, we couldn't have been happier with our home away from home! We would highly recommend this wonderful vacation spot, and hope to return ourselves.

The beds were comfortable and everything was new and very clean.
The apt., is handicap accessible, with a lower deck ramp.
The apt. is a short drive into downtown, Boothbay Harbor.
We, will certainly return for another visit.
Thanks, for sharing your home, Sharon.

The Boothbay Region has been a destination for travelers for over a century. The unique character of our rocky seacoast makes it a pleasure to enjoy from both land and sea. The Boothbay Region is found at the end of a long peninsula in the Midcoast area of Maine. It is a picturesque area with rich maritime heritage. The region boasts several festivals which celebrate this heritage. The architecture of the region reflects the charm of a New England fishing village with white, clapboard homes, specialty shops, galleries, boat yards and marinas.
