About Becky Schmelzer

My family and I live in Winthrop, ME (lakes region), where my wife, Becky is from, but I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts Our family loves the ocean and is the reason why we purchased this home in Boothbay Harbor. The property is private and a few minutes walk to the harbor as well as downtown and minutes to Barrett Park. Barrett Park has wonderful swimming and picnicking area right on the ocean. You can also bring your pet to the park which we love as we are animal lovers and we walk our lab, Jackson around our home all the time.

Becky Schmelzer purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky Schmelzer chose Boothbay

Boothbay Harbor is a very desirable area of mid coast Maine. My wife is from Maine and Boothbay Harbor has always been a favorite place to come visit. The restaurants and shopping are amazing and we never tire of what the harbor has to offer. The towns people are incredibly friendly and are always welcoming.

What makes this house unique

The privacy is great because of our pets, there is no one on the road but us! But even though we have tons of privacy, we are only a few minutes walk to the harbor which is convenient as once we arrive, we don't have to worry about driving and can really take advantage of the beautiful views and surroundings of the area. We love the footbridge leading into the harbor and starting off our adventure with an ice cream cone as soon as we cross the bridge!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Becky,

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Boothbay Harbor. The weather was beautiful and your gorgeous home was absolutely perfect for us! Everyone raved about how clean, comfortable, spacious and peaceful it was. We cooked several meals in your lovely kitchen and had many laughs around your dining room table. Thank you so very much for making our post-wedding vacation memorable. We will absolutely recommend your home to our friends.

Thanks again!

Beautiful house and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, beautifully decorated house, in a quiet setting; this allowed us to relax and enjoy our wonderful vacation. This house has a large kitchen area and is stocked with everything you need. We especially enjoyed the front porch. The beds are very comfortable. Everything was wonderful and we would like to thank Russ and Becky for their attention to detail and concern that we were happy with the accommodations.

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent 5 nights at the house and had a great time. It's new, spacious, clean, had fresh towels, linens, and a kitchen stocked with all the equipment we needed. We walked into town everyday (short and safe), grilled dinner on the porch one night, played the games provided, and sat on the front and back porch daily with books and drinks. Having a half bath on the 1st floor (in addition to the 2 full baths) was helpful with a large group of 8, as was the spacious and open first floor.

Becky and her family were very helpful and responsive, even immediately dropping off a new charcoal grill when the one mentioned in the listing couldn't be found anywhere.

Note that one of the 4 bedrooms has a twin trundle that does not lift up to make a double bed, and another of the rooms has a double bed and 2 twin beds. The remaining two bedrooms have a double (upstairs) and king (master suite downstairs). The 4 bedrooms are really best for 3 couples + 3-4 kids.

We recommend this house for a larger group visiting Boothbay Harbor!

boothbay harbor rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental home was every bit as lovely as it looked in the pictures. The walk into town was a nice walk across the footpath. The kitchen was unusually well equipped for a rental propoerty. The owners were very responsive to our needs. I loved our vacation there and my children and other family members who stayeed with us also had a great time. I only wish we could have stayed longer than a week to enjoy this beautiful home

What a wonderful experience! Becky and her extended family made us feel at home so we could relax and recharge. From the spacious, nicely-decorated rooms to the well-stocked kitchen, this house is a real gem. It's a great location, but the owner details are what makes the home so warm and welcoming: Nice sheets and plenty of pillows; pretty dishes, kitchenware and flatware (no mismatched junk you so often find in other rental homes); fully-functioning appliances. And best of all, immaculately clean and neat as a pin! What a relaxing week! We hope to return for longer next year. In town, go see Shannon and her mom, too, at Shannon's Unshelled--great lobster rolls and super-friendly service!

Beautiful home in a private, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this home - location, privacy, outdoor seating, comfortable rooms throughout, well-appointed kitchen, walking distance to beautiful Barrett's Cove and to town. Would definitely stay again if returning to Boothbay Harbor

This is a great roomy comfortable house to stay in. We had a great time spending a week in Boothbay Harbor last week in a great location even though the weather was a little cool for us for a couple of days. Heating system worked perfectly to get the chill off.

We did some cooking and found everything that we needed in the way of kitchen equipment.

We would definitely recommend this rental property.
