East Boothbay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Green Landing is a spacious and classic 1880's waterfront shingle-style Maine summer home set on the shore with an amazing view where the tidal Damariscotta River meets the sea. Just outside of Boothbay Harbor, Green Landing has been lovingly maintained and in the same family for nearly 50 years and over 4 generations. The entire property encompasses 5 acres yet is just steps from the village of East Boothbay.

Green Landing offers the best of the comforts of summers past: a wide covered porch overlooking the water, a private beach, cozy places to sit by the fireplace, and plenty of room for friends and family. At the same time, we offer the convenience of summers present: a well-equipped kitchen, outdoor gas grill and lobster cooker, free wi-fi, and cable TV with DVD and VCR.

The 4 bedrooms offer comfortable king (2), double (2) and twin-sized beds (2), and the 3.5 bathrooms means there is rarely a wait. When the weather is fine you can open the sliding doors out onto the deck and soak in the sun, and when the fog and rain arrive you can settle in by a crackling fire and enjoy one of the many jigsaw puzzles, movies, or books available.

Green Landing is a destination all it's own, with many of our guests returning year after year. Uniquely situated in the village of East Boothbay we are secluded yet within easy walking distance to the East Boothbay General Store (watch for their yummy specials!), Lobsterman's Wharf Restaurant, and the East Boothbay Post Office.

Guests can see traditional Maine maritime activities in action at the local ship and yacht builders right around the corner: Washburn and Doughty - builders of steel hulled tug boats and fireboats - and Hodgdon Yachts - builders of fine yachts for 5 generations.

We invite you to join us as our guests and enjoy the spacious dock. You can watch the lobster boats as the lobstermen haul their traps, or witness the incredible sight of sunrise over the river. Use the spyglass to check out great blue heron and harbor seals as they feed.

At Green Landing you'll find the authentic Maine experience.

Keywords: Classic 1880's Shingle-Style Maine summer home, private beach, large dock and float. Just 3 miles to Boothbay Harbor. Enjoy the peacefulness of the shore, just minutes from town.

About Nell Tharpe

Welcome, friends! Green Landing is the place to enjoy time with loved ones. The Boothbay Region is a perfect place for hiking and kayaking, and meeting new friends.

You may see me and my dogs (Clara and Piper) at sunrise as we walk to the shore to greet the day. They especially enjoy hunting for crab shells along the shore, and watching the water from the float.

My professional background is as a Certified Nurse-Midwife and I practiced in the Boothbay Region until 2003. Currently, I teach and write about midwifery and women's health.

I am happy to live this wonderful coastal community, and I find village life both peaceful and engaging.

Nell Tharpe purchased this house in 1967

Why Nell Tharpe chose Boothbay Harbor Area

My family has summered in East Boothbay since the 1880's. Growing up here summers, I helped with Green Landing as a youngster. As an adult, I longed to come live here full-time. In 1986, I made the move, and have lived here ever since.

In the early 1990's I took over the stewardship of Green Landing, bringing my artistic eye and expansive sense of comfort to this wonderful summer home. Each year we update some aspect of the home and property - I've discovered hidden gardens and stone walls, updated bathrooms, and upgraded furnishings - while maintaining the authenticity of this magnificent and classic Maine summer home. It's been a labor of love for me, and a source of joy and inspiration. I hope you enjoy staying at Green Landing as much as I enjoy caring for her.

What makes this house unique

What are the best things about Green Landing?

I'd have to say they include the perfect blend of privacy and accessibility. It is delightful to wander up to the East Boothbay General Store or to Lobstermans' Wharf for a bite to eat, or to the shore for a splash on a hot summer's day. Moonlight kayaking on the river is amazing, and watching the sunrise from bed (and then pulling the covers over one's head!) never fails to delight.

But the very best thing about Green Landing is inviting friends and family for lobster feasts, to eat, laugh, and soak up the incredible atmosphere while dipping savory chunks of lobster in warm butter or munching on corn on the cob. This is summer in Maine at it's finest!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Green Landing was the perfect choice for our family vacation. We were a family of eight--2 sets of grandparents, our daughter and son-in-law, and our two grandchildren. Green Landing is set at the waters edge of the Damariscotta River where we watched the lobster boats haul in their catch each morning and evening. We could enjoy this view from either the expansive wrap around porch of the main house or on the dock just below the house. Our grandchildren loved crabbing off the dock and trying to catch lobster with their fishing poles. There is a huge table with chairs on the porch where we ate lobster and corn on the cob. In fact, the setting was so perfect that we ate most of our meals at the house because we couldn't find a restaurant that had comparable views! The East Boothbay General Store is withing a five minute walk and is definitely worth a visit. There was expansive green space for the children to run and play and plenty of games and puzzles for both adults and children. The location is ideal because you feel as though you're in your own private sanctuary, yet Boothbay Harbor and all its activity is minutes away. Nell, the owner, was a delight and promptly replaced the old modem with a new one so we would have Wifi. Green Landing is a beautiful, magical place that exceeded our expectations, and we would most definitely return.

Owner's Response: It's always wonderful to create memories for new generations of guests! Those joyful memories of summer stay with us, and are part of the reason why I enjoy sharing my home. As an owner, having guests help identify ways to improve their stay is so important, and carries forward for the next guests. Green Landing is summer in Maine at it's best!

The village of East Boothbay is a terrific place to explore. We have shipyards, a restaurant, post office, marina, and an amazing general store where you can get coffee, sandwiches and home made donuts (the cardamom ones are my favorite!). We are close to the Boothbay Land Trust walking trails, and just minutes from the scenic bold oceanfront of Ocean Point.

The town of Boothbay Harbor is just minutes away, with shops, grocery, restaurants, lobster wharves and boat trips for everyone. A few miles down the road is the world class Coastal Maine Botanic Gardens, and for the golfers in your group there is the newly updated Boothbay Country Club.

Those of you who are dog lovers can enjoy recreational classes at Positively Best Friends dog training facility in nearby Edgecomb.

My favorite thing about living in the Boothbay Region is that there is something for everyone!
