Lovely accommodations in a centralized location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in BBH. We were comfortable in the apartment and it was plenty of room for the two of us. It might be crowded for more than two people. We loved being within walking distance of town! There are three short flights of stairs to the apartment. May not be ideal for those with mobility issues.

Charming, clean & great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apt. is well equipped, very clean and located right in the heart of town. You can walk to almost everything: shops, restaurants, sailing, concerts and other activities. The grocery store is a bit of a hike so a car is best for that. The parking for the apt is a small walk but the area is so beautiful that's not a big deal. I will be back next year. Thank you Dianne and Mark for being very helpful hosts. My visit was fantastic!

What a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came up to Boothbay for a wedding and reception right across the street at Fisherman's Wharf. While the hotel is nice the rooms are a bit small and we wanted the space to have people over during the week's festivities. The location is perfect with a view of the harbor, the interior has been updated and has a nice beach cottage feel. Perfect location for a couple to getaway.

Excellent spot for Boothbay stay.

  • 5 of 5

I came to Boothbay Harbor for a wedding at Spruce Point Inn that had festivities in town... so I decided to get a place in town. This was a sure winner. The building is old New England, but the interior refurb made this nicer than the cottages Spruce Point offers. Floors don't creak, shower has great pressure, fixtures are modern. Hosts are pleasant and helpful (and have an awesome '56 t-bird convertible that you'll spot around town.). Definitely a great spot. Do consider carefully if stairs are an issue... this is up two tight flights. No elevators here, so if your knees don't like climbing up and down, this might not be the spot for you.

A fantastic option in the middle of town

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully up-to-date space and friendly and helpful hosts! The building is classic, but the space has been redone very recently, so the best of both worlds, e.g. great shower and constant water pressure, floors are not at all creaky, and in an original building that clearly belongs where it is. Do beware if stairs are not your thing, you can't avoid them here, but the climb is worth it.

Boothbay Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay at this property. Not only is it very clean and appropriately decorated, it is centrally located in town to all the great shops and dining. Dianne was the perfect host. She gave us recommendations on places to eat and things to do. We enjoyed ice cream at Down East Ice Cream, lobster rolls at the Lobster Dock and Shannon's Unshelled, and breakfast at Blue Moon Cafe. We visited the beautiful Maine Botanical Gardens and cruised on a Puffin tour. We would definitely stay at this property if we ever came back to Boothbay Harbor.

For over a century the Boothbay Harbor region has been a favorite destination of travelers longing to relax and enjoy the 'rock bound coast of Maine' from land and sea. With its 'snug as a booth' harbor, long peninsula, and numerous islands, the region is renowned for its natural beauty and boating pleasures. A bustling place, Boothbay Harbor retains all the charm and rich heritage of a maritime New England village – white clapboard homes, numerous specialty shops, galleries, boat yards and marinas dot the Harbor's rocky shoreline.

Boothbay Harbor boasts the largest fleet of excursion boats on the coast for viewing lighthouses, seals, islands, whales, puffins, and the spectacular foliage in fall. Deep-sea fishing cruises for cod, mackerel, tuna, haddock, and striped bass leave daily for full and half-day trips. Boothbay Harbor's fine marinas and fishing facilities are well known to yachtsmen cruising the Maine coast. Seafood is the dining specialty – clams, scallops, shrimp and the king of them all LOBSTER. It is also the home of Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens a must-do when visiting the harbor.
