Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Becky,



Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Boothbay Harbor. The weather was beautiful and your gorgeous home was absolutely perfect for us! Everyone raved about how clean, comfortable, spacious and peaceful it was. We cooked several meals in your lovely kitchen and had many laughs around your dining room table. Thank you so very much for making our post-wedding vacation memorable. We will absolutely recommend your home to our friends.



Thanks again!

My family and I live in Winthrop, ME (lakes region), where my wife, Becky is from, but I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts Our family loves the ocean and is the reason why we purchased this home in Boothbay Harbor. The property is private and a few minutes walk to the harbor as well as downtown and minutes to Barrett Park. Barrett Park has wonderful swimming and picnicking area right on the ocean. You can also bring your pet to the park which we love as we are animal lovers and we walk our lab, Jackson around our home all the time.

Becky Schmelzer purchased this house in 2012

Boothbay Harbor is a very desirable area of mid coast Maine. My wife is from Maine and Boothbay Harbor has always been a favorite place to come visit. The restaurants and shopping are amazing and we never tire of what the harbor has to offer. The towns people are incredibly friendly and are always welcoming.

The privacy is great because of our pets, there is no one on the road but us! But even though we have tons of privacy, we are only a few minutes walk to the harbor which is convenient as once we arrive, we don't have to worry about driving and can really take advantage of the beautiful views and surroundings of the area. We love the footbridge leading into the harbor and starting off our adventure with an ice cream cone as soon as we cross the bridge!

Spacious, Private, Close to town Charmer!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 (kids are 9 and 4 y.o.), my brother-in-law's family of 4 (kids are 6 y.o. and 6 weeks old) and my sister-in-law stayed at this property for a week. We had a very new baby with us - my brother-in-law and his wife stayed on the main floor with ample privacy to tend the newborn. The rest of us stayed upstairs -- with plentiful space! LOTS of beds! We marveled all week long about how comfortable the living was. With 9 people in a house, you expect to feel a little under foot at times. Here? Not once! The yard was huge and private, the kids ran amuck freely, yet when I wanted to go to town, I struck out on foot and was in the heart of BBH within minutes. It was really the best of both worlds: somewhat secluded, still easily accessible. The house was clean, had plenty of towels (!), great laundry facilities, and all the basic kitchen supplies. We will definitely return - thank you, Schmelzer family! What a wonderful vacation!

This home exceeded our expectations, which were high. Listing matched accurately all its amendities. It was clean, well-maintained and owners were extremely helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend this home if you are looking to stay in the Boothbay Harbor area. I have been coming to Boothbay Harbor since 1991. We were thrilled to be one of the first renters for their first season. We have already booked for next year. Having AC, Internet, TV, laundry; plus everything else.... comfortable beds, a great kitchen, a cozy living room - with comfortable seating.... a wonderful dining area with a great window seat area to relax in the morning. The front porch was also a great place to relax in the morning.... and the front yard was perfect for star gazing.... nicely situated on top of Park Street; private - yet so close to the swimming area at the park and shopping in town. The house is also easy access for luggage and groceries. We will be back in 2014! Many, many thanks to Becky and Russ for making our July 2013 trip to Maine our best ever!!!! Sandy & family

We have been coming to the Booth Bay Harbor area for approximately the last 17 years. We look forward to this every year, and have stayed at several different places. We could not have been more pleased than we were this year with the beautiful accommodations that Becky and Russ provided. It is a very well kept and comfortable home, with all of the necessities provided. It is so convenient to almost anything that you want to do while visiting Booth Bay Harbor region. We were there for two weeks and had several groups of family and friends join us. They all were so pleased, and it was a wonderful place to entertain. The kitchen is outstanding and is a wonderful area to prepare meals with plenty of space to serve your guests. The owners were extremely hospitable and we were made to feel very welcome. We highly recommend this property for a wonderful vacation!

Boothbay 2013

This house is comfortable, new and very clean. It has AC and wireless internet (both necessities for rainy, muggy weather with teenagers). It really is suitable for 9 or 10 people if you can manage with 2 full baths. (One room was large enough to accommodate four teenagers who chose to spend the week there, leaving two rooms empty.) It's also close to town and the grocery store, the Boothbay Theater and the YMCA if you are in need of a regular workout (which is also a nice,organized facility with a super indoor track and tennis courts). The house is big, open and attractive. It felt a little out in the boonies, in spite of the location to town, as it is the only house in a yet-to-be-built neighborhood. Because it's new to the rental market it needs a few items like a some videos and books. The lighting is almost all small, low watt lamps, making it tough for reading anything when it's time to put your feet up. Some better lighting would solve this easily. We were short on towels within 3 days but a call to the owner brought someone over with access to a few more. They were very clean but super light weight and only two per person for a week, definitely not enough. It could use a few more cooking utensils to make it a little more convenient but that is only because it's a new rental. We made strawberry shortcake but there was no whip for the cream, so we bought pre-made stuff at Hannaford's nearby. There was also no hair dryer, and unfortunately no one packed any, but a trip to Renny's in Damariscotta solved that. These few changes would make it a very comfortable place for a large sized family or group and would bump it to the excellent category, providing you don't mind the minor wilderness feel.

Hidden gem of the Harbor!

  • 5 of 5
My family fell in love with Boothbay Harbor and with this beautiful cozy, inviting home. The pictures don't begin to compare to how beautiful, clean and well kept the house is. The owners are very nice and truly responsive to all the questions. The house is very close to town for quick shopping and sightseeing and the botanical gardens as well as the Maine state aquarium in Boothbay (and also on a rainy day the YMCA was a great place to swim with the family). It is an ideal location to entertain the family, to get great seafood and to discover Boothbay Harbor. The kids loved playing soccer in the yard and the rock fencing the home makes it look quaint. I will definitely come back to visit Boothbay and Ava Cape. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

A real gem of a home in Boothbay Harbor!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this gorgeous, peaceful and perfectly-located Boothbay Harbor home to relax with friends and family after our daughter's June wedding. It was absolutely perfect--immaculate, comfortable and spacious with all the ammenities one could ever want. There were 8 of us (all adults) and we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The kitchen is large and outfitted with pots, pans and utensils, and there is a gas grill on the deck that we used to steam lobsters. The beds are new and very comfortable, and the living room is a wonderful place to enjoy the gas fireplace on chilly evenings. The bathrooms are spacious and squeaky-clean and one of our guests fell in love with the fabulous hand lotions and soaps! Becky is incredibly responsive and accommodating and very eager to answer questions or help out in any way. I highly recommened this property. Thank you, Schmelzer Family, for a memorable vacation! We will absolutely rent this property again on a future visit to Boothbay Harbor.
