About Mary Apple

I live in Denver, CO but grew up in Wyoming. Why Maine? My deceased husband fell in love with Maine when he went to visit friends there. He introduced me to Maine after we were married. We rented a cottage for many years there, but then he decided he wanted his own place. Thus this house in Maine. I can't live in a place until it's perfect. This is perfect.

Mary Apple purchased this house in 1993

Why Mary Apple chose East Boothbay

You should have seen this house when we bought it! The only thing that remains of the original house is the living room. The rest has been built new.

The art in the house is mostly by Maine artists although there are some artists displayed from as far away as France. We have lots of books in the bookcases for your reading pleasure. There are books on Maine, biographies, novels (mostly novels -- both old and new).

What makes this house unique

The view of the ocean is really wonderful--winter or summer. It's a year-round house, perfect for the holidays -- summer or winter. It's a great getaway fall, winter, spring or summer.

The garden, oh the garden, I didn't realize how fast things grown and big they get in Maine. Weeds too. We built the stairs to the ocean so we could get down the hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello again

We just wanted to tell you that we enjoyed your home well beyond our expectations. We have stayed in VRBO homes in many countries and 3 continents. We have stayed in a home on top of a small mountain overlooking Zihuatenjo Bay in Mexico and watched the sun come up every morning and thought that was purely magical. We rented a home in Mendoza, Argentina in a walled in compound with a 25 meter private pool with a gardener on premises that was absolutely old world and as beautiful as any home in Architectural Digest.



Your home was even more beautiful and fun to stay in. You have such great taste in art and the sailing motif you decorated the home in, is absolutely beautiful. With the views into the Bay of Maine as far as the eye could see out over the rocks, was hard to look away from. We opened all the windows and listened to the waves lap at the beach at night, and the low hum of the lobster boats working their pots to wake up to, in the morning. We never really wanted to leave, and venture out to shop and see the sights of Eastbay, which are after all, fantastic and centrally located; but we did. You can take day trip from here to everything you want to see, to have a true Maine Experience, which is what we really hoped for. We will definitely come again and hope your home is open to accommodate our schedule. Happy Travels,
Jul 2012

Water Front, Light Filled, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at this color-filled home and hope to return again. There are beautiful ocean views from each of the bedrooms as well as the large, flower-filled deck and the living room and the kitchen. This house has a very soothing feeling with the backdrop of the waves lulling you to sleep. The house is filled with light and decorated in an artsy Maine style making it feel as if it is filled with love. The beds are all comfortable and the house is amazingly clean. The yard is filled with all sorts of blooming bushes and flowers making it hard to even want to leave the property. The approximately two mile loop around the area makes for a peaceful walk as well. The house feels secluded given the fact that it is surrounded by trees yet it is only about ten minutes from Boothbay. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat with beautiful ocean views and the sound of the waves breaking, yet close to Boothbay, I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful Home & Wonderful Ocean View

Beautiful Home & Wonderful Ocean View
  • 5 of 5
Oh what a beautiful home, offering wonderful ocean views and even glimpses of sunrise with sunset just around the curve in the road. Even on foggy rainy days we could watch the fog creep in and sneak out hugging the oceanfront from the kitchen.living/dining and deck areas.
Upon arriving we immediately felt at home; the house is so inviting and pleasant, even better than the photos! The owner has displayed so many interesting eclectic collections that we were still discovering new things the day we left. The kitchen is well equipped for quick or gourmet meals and we could visit while we cooked due to the marvelous layout of the kitchen/living and deck areas. All beds were very comfortable and it was great to be soothed to sleep by the sound of the waves lapping up against the rocky shore.

The owner and local people were easy to reach and quickly assisted in minor problems. We have been coming to the Boothbay Harbor area for thirty years and this is the best house ever! It was perfect for entertaining another couple for the week and also for a special dinner for a local artist friend from Ocean Point. We look forward to a return visit.
Thank you Mary for sharing your beautiful home with us.

East Boothbay Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
4 adults, 1 child for anniversary and birthday celebration week. The view is spectacular! This spot offers something for everyone. Foraging for shells, exploring the tidal pools, coupled with simple activity trips into Boothbay Harbor (sailing, kayaking, shopping, dining, etc.) - we were very happy with the access to peace and quiet but plethora of activities nearby. Owner is very organized and has a wonderful house full of comfort and luxury. I wish we could have stayed another week. I would rent this house again in a heart-beat, and hope to next year! - MR

Bright, cheerful house with great views

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay. The house is bright and cheerful, with plenty of colorful art to look at-- and a good selection of books and games for rainy days (of which we got a few). The beds are comfortable; enough bedding is provided (from warm comforters to light quilts) so you can adjust to changes in the weather. The two main bedrooms are very large and separated for privacy – a perfect set-up for two couples. We were a party of five: three adults and two teenage cousins who bunked together in the smaller third bedroom with twin beds. We found the location of the house perfect – quiet and a bit out-of-the way, yet within a few miles drive to busy Boothbay Harbor and its restaurants. You can also buy lobsters, live or cooked and reasonably priced, just down the road from a local lobsterman. We loved that the house is located on a two-mile loop that allowed us to take morning and evening walks without worrying about traffic. We also enjoyed exploring the tidal pools at low tide just down the hill from the deck. All in all, we highly recommend for couples or for families with older children.

A house to revisit!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time in East Booth Bay and this was the perfect place to come home to at the end of each
busy day. The view of the ocean was breathtaking, and what a delight to fall asleep to the sound of the
waves! The home is clean, comfy, with lots of pillows, blankets, books and games. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals at home.The owners are super easy to reach and answered all our question, even provided a list of favorite resturants in the area. We will be back next year!

Family trip to Maine

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at the house, the view from the house was breathtaking. All the photos accurately reflected the property. the house was well equipped with everything we needed (including hair dryers, coffee maker, washer/dryer etc) and was very comfortable. the owner was very helpful with little questions we had along with recommendations about what to do in the area. we would certainly recommend the property.
