Our property is located on quiet Back River Road. Only one home is visible from the kitchen sink. This apartment is above a 3 car garage connected by a large deck to the owner's home. The lot features large, hardwood trees, birds and some small wild animals. Enjoy the serenity!

Area Description: Four miles away are the beautiful, tourist attractions that only Boothbay Harbor can offer. See the 'locals' working their lobster boats and notice all the larger cabin cruisers docked in the harbor too. Go on a whale watch, an island lobster bake, shop in the unique stores, sample some homemade ice cream, candies and flavored popcorn. Plan a visit, to the beautiful Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. 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. It offers 15 properties for your hiking and outdoor enjoyment. The region also features the Boothbay Railway Village, Dept. of Marine Resources Aquarium, several parks, beaches, a YMCA, and freshwater swimming. Don't forget to enjoy our fresh local seafood and hospitality while you are here

You have to see it to believe it!

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!

Great space for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this well built oasis. The place was well appointed. Kitchen had everything we needed. We did not need anything. We loved the screened in porch. Spent most of our time out there. The yard is an amazing place for star gazing at night. The only downside to the experience was the beds. In particular the twin sized bed was extremely firm and not comfortable. Thank you to Becky and Kevin for accommodating our needs. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We regret that you found the twin bed uncomfortable. A foam mattes cover is available in the closet for either the couch bed or twin bed so that our guests can adjust the bed for their comfort. We love to star gaze from our deck and yard as well. Please consider staying with us again if you visit Maine again. Regards, Becky and Kevin

Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with this property. It is clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Very quiet and peaceful...nestled in the woods and off the beaten path. I loved the screened in porch. It was really close to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens (within a 5 minute drive), which is now one of my favorite places in the world. The property is within a 10 minute drive to Booth Bay Harbor which is a fun little village with many good restaurants and a great grocery store (Hannaford's). I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed "Poff Mahal". The home is in a quiet neighborhood with hard wood trees all around, very well cared for, all the amenities we needed, and tastefully decorated. Perfect for our family of 4! The location was ideal for our plans that included visits to Boothbay Harbor, and as far as Portland. Becky was very hospitable and offered advise on nearby attractions. Check in, and check out were all very easy. This was our first home away experience and we were very pleased. If you are considering staying here, book now, you will not be disappointed.

A beautiful, restful place to stay. Meticulously cared for. Peaceful place to be.

  • 5 of 5

Although we really didn't spend many waking hours in our "home in Maine," we can't say enough for how nice the place is. It is lovely. Everything is as it seems on the photos. Becky and Kevin were very welcoming and offered us help with planning our short, first time visit to Maine. We were glad to stay here. We would recommend it to anyone interested in seeing Maine or finding a relaxing haven in Maine where you could easily spend the afternoon reading a book or enjoying the peace and quiet.

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.
