Best Vacation Home Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to discover this home on Home Away and I must say we were not disappointed when we arrived. All of the pictures on the listing were even more amazing in person! This is definitely a one of a kind property by the way it sits completely out over the water. The views from the dock and the Crow's Nest were beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking.

Mike, the property manager met us when we arrived and was very helpful in telling us about the house and the local area. Our 4 families from Pennsylvania stayed here for a week and we all had plenty of space. The house and kitchen were well furnished and the gas grill was great to have there for the nights we cooked. The washer and dryer worked well and it was nice to have it there to use.

One of the highlights of our week was catching squid! It was amazing to see the squid come up to the dock at night when we would turn the light on. After 3 nights of trying to catch them with fishing rods, my son finally was successful at catching some with a net! We also caught a few crabs and lobsters from right there on the dock with crab nets. (They were too small to keep, so we threw them back!) We enjoyed hanging out on the dock at night and playing games with the kids.

In addition to the amazing house and dock, the town of Boothbay Harbor was quaint and beautiful. It was close enough to walk into town and enjoy the many shops and restaurants. Some of our favorite places were The Lobster Dock for seafood, Wannawaf for ice cream and waffles, and Waves Restaurant for a delicious breakfast. One of the families brought bicycles which were great to keep there at the house for the week and ride into town with.

We enjoyed driving to see some local lighthouses. Pemaquid Lighthouse is really neat to see and you can actually go up into the light house! We also took one day to drive up to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. It was well worth the drive if you have never been there! We also visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. If you are a flower person you won't be disappointed!

It was a great week at The Dock and no one wanted to leave! I can't say enough good things about our vacation there. We would definitely return to stay here again!

Very beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of four couples. The house accommodated us with plenty of room. You've got to have Michaels lobster bake! It was the best. Michael was very nice and addressed our needs in a very timely manner. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. I would stay there again!

A bit of heaven on earth...

  • 5 of 5

The location and accommodations were accurately described. The owners, Beau and Tanner were amazing to work with answering every question I threw at them.

My daughter was married at The Botanical Gardens the day we arrived. 11 adults and 2 children spent the following week on the dock! It was an incredible vacation and as many have said, we hated to leave. Ocean view from every room, kayaks, lobsters steamed and delivered by Mike!

I would suggest more trash cans outside and larger kitchen trash cans in the kitchen. The washer and dryer were great to have but couldn't get it to start when we were leaving. Sorry...

Thank you for sharing this wonderful property!!!!

A Special Spot in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This is a special property in so many respects. Wonderfully designed for a group of 10 like ours with rooms nicely spread out so that early risers don't bother late sleepers, a comfortable living area with all the amenities (Wi-Fi, cable), spectacular water views from every room, and a huge outdoor deck area with picnic tables for meals. More to the point, the house is basically in the harbor, jutting out into all the boating, kayaking, and fishing action; it's called the Dock for a reason. I've never stayed in a property like it.

The Dock well located, within walking distance of town, with plenty of shopping nearby and lots of places of interest within easy driving distance.

Mike, the property manager, is terrific and always available to answer questions or help out. And he's a whiz a finding and delivering the best lobsters around.

This was our second year at the Dock. We'll be back.

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

The views were spectacular from inside and out! From the rooftop deck to the outside bar, where we watched the squid at night, this place has it all! The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of room for the 5 couples staying there. The extra sitting rooms were very useful. Mike was very helpful and responsive to anything that came up. Highly recommend this location as it is quite a unique experience being on top of the water! We enjoyed lobsters supplied by Mike (already cooked), we ate at Bets Fish Fry (a must stop when you go to Boothbay Harbor) and picked up lobster rolls at Trevitts. Did some shopping downtown and found some great buys! Wonderful week!
