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!

Great week @ "The Dock"

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week at The Dock. We live on the New England coast so we took a bit of a flyer in going to Boothbay and were thrilled. Boothbay has everything you could need and the house was great for our extended family with several teens/tweens. while the town has some good restaurants we spent most of our evenings cooking out (the new gas grill was great) and watching the sunset. The nightly thrill was the squid fishing - interrupted by hungry seals - followed by late night calamari. Plan to go back again for sure.

Everything we hoped for and more

  • 4 of 5

What a view!!! Absolutely spectacular harbor view that was more amazing than the photos on the site! 14 of us(all family) spent the majority of our week simply taking in the scenery from the pier and enjoying each others company. We rented Kayaks for the entire week and spent many hours fishing from the pier. We pulled in a few mackerels and even a flounder(very rare I hear). When we did leave, we would wander into downtown Boothbay which is walkable but with young kids we would usually drive. Plenty of neat shops and restaurants to visit in town. Weather was warm during the day and cooled down substantially in the evenings which made for comfortable nights of sleep. All and all a great place and we plan on visiting again in the future. Only one negative, we would recommend a better grill. Many miles on the current one and was difficult to grill for as many people as we had. We mostly ate out so this didn't have a huge effect on our visit so we didn't even mention it to the property manager Mike. Mike was a truly amazing host I must say. Thumbs up to him!!! All in all a FANTASTIC vacation home!!!

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 gathered from around the country at The Dock House at Boothbay Harbor, Saturday, September 6th, 2014. We started laughing together that minute and never stopped till the week was over. The weather was fall perfect! The house could not have been better for a week in Maine. On the water, with a marvelous deck where we all spent a lot of time telling stories, reading and down right relaxing! The house layout and amenities were just right. Comfortable beds, nice towels and linens, washer/dryer, well equipped kitchen (although we opted to rely more on the great Harbor restaurants for meals). One of the highlights of our stay was a New England Lobster Bake, done at the house on the rocks, and served on the deck, with all the trimmings by the Rapid Radish Company. WOW! From walks to town, the numerous lobster rolls, harbor tour, visit to the lobster houses where the boats come in, the botanical garden and more. The owners were great to work with, too! As we said when we left, "BEST VACATION EVER!"

Awesome place, in so many ways!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect and exceeded expectations! Comfortable, clean, super relaxing and what beauty, sitting on the dock! We love that we could walk to town so everyone could do what they wanted. Highly recommend Cabbage Island for an awesome boat ride and meal! Thanks to Tanner and Mike for sharing a wonderful place and making it so easy to do so!!
