Local attractions abound, such as hiking trails, a dinner theater, fishing excursion boats, numerous restaurants ( which offer the freshest of seafood along with other specialties ), quaint gift shops, tour boats for whale watching and island tours, and beaches for swimming.

About The Owner

Known as Eleanor & Pete Yes, we retired here in Maine and drove local school busses. Pete’s job before he retired included extensive travel throughout North America and other countries. Eleanor was a stay at home Mom with a lot of interesting part time jobs such as dog officer, welcome wagon hostess, school bus driver ( 36 years wow! ), newspaper reporter, and dog groomer. We sold our two acre 200 year old farm in MA to retire to Maine and built a new home in the heart of the Mid Coast, and we love it here and want to have you enjoy it too..

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Boothbay Harbor Area

We chose the area of the Boothbay region for it’s uniqueness: we are a community of boat builders, fishermen, beautiful islands, rocky shoreline with some sandy beaches, unusual seabirds, a gorgeous new Botanical Gardens, quaint shops, great restaurants for unusual dining of fresh seafood along with standard fare, lots of wonderful hiking trails, and lovely conservation areas.

What makes this house unique

When we had our home built on the coast in East Boothbay 21 years ago, we added a unique benefit in the form of an “in-law” apartment for Eleanor’s Mom. After she passed on, we decided it would be fun to share our wonderful world here with those who have never seen the Maine Coast, or those who love it the way we do! The apartment has been updated with new furnishings, kitchen appliances etc. and we delight in taking our guests off-shore in our 32 ft lobster-style yacht to see the islands, quaint coves, lighthouses, and harbors.

The setting is quiet, private and beautiful. The location is within a few minutes of Ocean Point, 15 minutes from Boothbay Harbor, and the apartment is quite comfortable for two. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful - generous, welcoming, and with a deep knowledge of the area. The boat tour was a highlight of our trip to Maine, and Damariscove Island in particular was spectacular! Thanks again, Eleanor and Pete, you are the best!

Beautiful setting, terrific hosts!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we began our stay at Eleanor and Pete's apartment we knew we had hit the jackpot! From an introductory tour to acquaint us with the goings on in the area, to the boat ride, our hosts were terrific. We could be alone when we wanted privacy, but could sit and talk at other times. We enjoyed a lobster dinner on their deck.

The apartment was spotless and the kitchen was furnished with everything we needed. We heartily recommend this quiet and peaceful place.

Convenient to places of interest.

Counting the Days

  • 5 of 5

This spring will be our 3rd trip to Eleanor and Pete's wonderful efficiency apartment. The studio is very clean and neat, it is furnished with everything we have needed for our stays, from kitchen supplies to towels and bed linens, with comfortable beds and sitting area. The studio is located in a beautiful - quiet area, as you are eating breakfast be sure to look out and see the wild turkeys as they take their morning stroll. The deck is the perfect spot to have a lobster bake after you take in the beautiful sunset on Ocean Point. The location is ideal, you could easily spend a week just exploring the beautiful local areas - the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Peninsula, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and the Maritime Museum in Bath, for starters. Eleanor and Pete are extremely welcoming and helpful with anything you may need to plan your stay, their boat rides and tours have been a highlight of our trips. Our only regret is we did meet Eleanor and Pete and find this lovely place sooner. We are already looking forward to our 2016 visit.

Snug and cosy place for two!

  • 5 of 5

Eleanor & Pete are wonderful! They make sure you have everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Totally agree with the other reviews about quiet location with plenty to see and do just minutes away. We enjoyed many sunsets sitting out at Ocean Point during our 2 week stay and would see Eleanor & Pete enjoying them also. It just proves that you never get tired of the view! We had a wonderful time out on their boat! You get to see wonderful sites not available on land! They have great info on the area's history and attractions. My husband says we are "shooting ourselves in the foot" by revealing this gem. Thanks Eleanor and Pete!!!!!

Great place for one!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Boothbay for a destination wedding and this was a great place to stay. Away from the hubbub but 5 minutes to be in the middle of it. Comfy, clean and fully furnished Eleanor thinks of everything.

She and her husband open their full property including a fabulous afternoon boating for me and two friends. We toured the islands and harbors enjoying the sights, the company and the beautiful Maine coastlines.

If you're seeking an affordable and comfortable, tranquil setting, this is it!
