Area Description: Four miles away are the beautiful, tourist attractions that only Boothbay Harbor can offer.

The Gardens feature magnificent displays and a beautiful waterfront location, many state of the art gardens, a gift shop and so much more. You may also enjoy the Boothbay Region Land Trust.

About Becky

We are seniors renting our retirement home. James and I handle the reservations and road maps --(if required) and my daughter Becky and husband Kevin handle everything else. Homeaway does our listing and help us in handling things needed.

Becky purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Becky chose Boothbay Harbor Area

Having this home available for our retirement gives us a peaceful feeling.

What makes this apartment unique

The home is located on a dead-end ocean inlet. The ocean is a short distance away. A 7 or 8 minute walk.

Downtown Boothbay Harbor is less than 5miles away.

An Irving station and the big grocery store is located less than 3 miles.

Traffic is minimal. There are no young children but within 2 miles there is a beautiful town playground.

Occasional owl hoots disturbs the night's peace. Ha!

We very much enjoyed our stay in this peaceful property. The master bed was very comfortable and the layout worked well for a couple and two teens. Thank you!

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were two adults and two teenagers. It worked out perfectly for what we needed. The rooms are not large but we far more room than we would have had in a hotel. It was very clean and decorated tastefully. Having a full kitchen was nice, we had breakfast at the house and usually made the short drive to town for dinner.

It was close enough that we could go back and forth from town with great ease but far enough away that we had a peaceful place to retreat at the end of the night.

You do have to go up a long set of stairs to get into the apartment. It wasn't a problem for me (since I wasn't the one that had to lug the heavier stuff up the stairs!). If we went back to Boothbay Harbor we would definitely consider staying her again.

The owners were great and very easy to make arrangements with.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. Also, your comment of the stairs helps us to remember to be clearer of the first way to enter the unit. You can park in the first car port and walk along the farthest right hand Boardwalk, turn the corner and your right at the screened in porch entrance. The only stairs needed to go up are the 4 ones that you can use to get on the porch . If we can be of help in the future don't hesitate. Sharon Poff

A terrific Maine getaway in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Hi. My family and I stayed in this comfortable home for a few days while visiting Boothbay Harbor. It's a beautiful place and very comfortable. It's new (or appears to be) and well furnished. We found it spotless and ready when we arrived. Our hosts Sharon and Becky were great communicators before, during and after our visit, and our security deposit was refunded the day after our departure. A great home we would recommend to others and return to ourselves.

Nice and Quaint

It was a very pleasant escape from the city and we enjoyed the peacefulness the area brought. I thought the binder idea was brilliant as it helped us in touring Boothbay Harbor and surrounding areas. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay at your home.

I thought it was a nice little place. It was cozy and very clean. Your daughter was extremely nice and said I could stay as long as I wanted on the day I was checking out.

The Boothbay Region has been a destination for travelers for over a century. The unique character of our rocky seacoast makes it a pleasure to enjoy from both land and sea. The Boothbay Region is found at the end of a long peninsula in the Midcoast area of Maine. It is a picturesque area with rich maritime heritage. The region boasts several festivals which celebrate this heritage. The architecture of the region reflects the charm of a New England fishing village with white, clapboard homes, specialty shops, galleries, boat yards and marinas.
