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.

Wonderful place/excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Eleanor's and Pete's apartment could not have been better for us and their complimentary boat trip was also perfect for us. We arrived on a mission to find a summer place in the Boothbay area. We found a great place with the help of our wonderful (and very supportive) hosts, Eleanor and Pete. The morning after our afternoon arrival, Pete took us out on his very cool lobster-style boat and, over the course of many (patient) hours, cruised by all of the houses we were going to see over the upcoming next few days. It was very helpful to have seen these places from the water prior to seeing them from the land. It was also very helpful to have someone familiar with the waters in the area, show us around. The stop in downtown Boothbay for an ice cream cone "lunch," of course, did not lessen our enthusiasm for the area. Oh...back to the apartment - there's nothing missing. We had been traveling for a few weeks and were sick of eating out, so we cooked most of our meals, for the 9 nights we were there, in the apartment (did I mention I like to cook and didn't need a thing to put a few semi-elaborate meals together?). All-in-all, we had a great time, loved the place and would go back in a heart beat. If you go, make sure you ask Eleanor to show you her amazing surprise upstairs!

Excellent ME hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable apartment that is just as described. It is also very well equipped with everything from pots and pans to parchment paper to make the stay easy and enjoyable. Then, the added bonus of Eleanor and Pete! When we arrived in their driveway our car died. Pete diagnosed the problem (dead alternator) and charged the battery. Meanwhile, Eleanor drove us to the grocery store so we could buy food. The next day we drove the car to his trusted mechanic. While it was being fixed, he and Eleanor took us on the famous boat tour (mentioned by other reviewers). We picnicked on an outlying island and got to see a lot of the area from the water. Talk about above an beyond hospitality!

Counting the days

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this lovely apartment for 3 years now, and we were blessed with another wonderful trip to Maine in June 2016. Our stay with Eleanor and Pete is always the highlight of our trips. We are now counting the days until our September 2016 trip, and another glorious stay. I guess we are addicted to this part of heaven here on earth. Life is good when your heart still skips beats when you get excited. This is what happens when we start looking forward to our holidays in Maine, our visits with Eleanor & Pete, and our stay in this lovely apartment, which is always neat and clean and has everything we need. The house is located in a beautiful and peaceful quiet setting. Just bring your clothes and someone to share this adventure with, and do not forget your DeLorme Maine Map to assist you as your explore the backroads of Maine. Check out Barrett Park off Lobster Cove Road in Boothbay with a great view of the cove, relax - read a book as you listen to the hymns from the church bells. The Maine Maritime Museum in Bath is fantastic, check out their web site for all they have to offer, before you head over. Eat at a Lobster Pound - we love 5 Islands Lobster Pound for the beautiful view. Go to Pinkham’s Seafood - 798 Wiscasset Rd, Boothbay - as you come in to town, or to Atlantic Edge Lobster - 71 Atlantic Ave in Boothbay Harbor, and pick up delicious lobsters, clams, oysters and crab. Bring your bounty home and have a fantastic meal on the beautiful deck. The highlight of our trip is the fantastic boat tour Eleanor and Pete take us on, a wonderful adventure exploring the sights of the coast from this beautiful perspective, with such gracious hosts. If all goes well we hope to continue this tradition for years to come. As a wise man once told me, " Life does not get any better that this ! "

Memorable

  • 5 of 5

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.
