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

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).

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.

Bright, cheerful house with great views

  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2013

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!

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

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.

A true Maine Experience--5 stars

  • Submitted: Jan 30, 2013

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,

Wonderful Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 30, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
This lovely home was exactly what we had hoped it would be: overlooking both the ocean and Damariscotta River, the views are spectacular. We enjoyed cooking in a well-appointed kitchen and picking up lobsters at the nearby Rines Wharf. It's an easy 10 minute drive to restaurants in Boothbay Harbor. We recommend Ports of Italy and McSeagulls. Yes, that's a corny name but they have the best clam chowder I've ever tasted. Oak St. Provisions is a good source for good meats and fish; we shopped there almost everyday.
Back to the house, it is so comfortable with spacious rooms, very comfortable beds. The photos on this website are accurate in that you really can see the water from the house and the living room is so pretty, filled with books and CDs, a nice fireplace and TV that get lots of channels. This is a good location for making daily field trips to some cute nearby towns like Wiscasset, Damariscotta and Camden. Do not miss the botanical garden in Boothbay. It is so well-designed, is delightful to walk through and has a cute children's area.
My husband and I are still talking about our wonderful vacation and plan to return when we can.
