Century-old oceanfront home with wraparound porch - walk downtown, dogs OK
Fulfill your fantasies of a summer in Midcoast Maine at this four-bedroom Boothbay Harbor retreat, a century-old home with a wrap-around porch, a dog-friendly living space, and a glorious oceanfront location within walking distance of downtown.
Built at the turn of the century, this classic four-square home sits one mile east of downtown Boothbay Harbor - the perfect place to book a kayaking excursion, a fishing charter, or an unforgettable whale-watching adventure. From this beautiful spot, you can explore the ocean coast at Barrett Park half a mile southwest, or dine on fresh lobster at Boothbay Lobster Wharf half a mile further.
The living space is full of warmth and charm, offering a country kitchen (with a dishwasher), free WiFi, and a cable TV for your indoor entertainment. Bring your morning coffee outside to the wrap-around porch, read the newspaper at the picnic table with a view of the ocean cove, and set up badminton games with your loved ones in the grassy yard below. Come dinnertime, you can host family clambakes on the charcoal grill outside and take your dog for long, leisurely walks around the neighborhood at sunset (please note that dogs must be leashed outdoors and that a nightly pet fee applies).

We traveled from all over the US to come to Maine. We Were fortunate to have found this beautiful house to stay in.
It was hygge. A Scandinavian word that means cozy and comfortable that gives you a feeling of contentment.
I hope we can return someday.

This house was perfect for our family of 6. Very well stocked, tons of space, great location on the water. Would definitely recommend.

Our family is from boothbay, we come several times a year to spend time with cousins. First time staying in this house and I was beyond unimpressed. I understand it’s an old house and that was fine, I actually love historical houses. I was not impressed with the condition of the furnishings. The couch smelled as though someone decayed on it as well as the chairs in the living room. Rugs were smelly. We had mouse droppings in the cupboards and throughout the house, under one of the elderly chairs that lifted was about 3 inches of fur in the ducts of the floor. My 5 year old developed a rash and also a respiratory issue while we stayed there. The fire alarm went off all hours of the night and we changed batteries and checked entire house so we were scared sleep. I wish I could have loved it, it would’ve been our go to house for our family of 5 a few times a year. The view is beautiful and the porch is pleasant that’s about all I can say.
We are so disappointed you were displeased, Michael. The homeowner has regular pest control to take care of mice. The older furnishings are pictured on the listing and are the owner's preference. Maintenance will take care of the smoke alarms. Thank you!

The house was very clean upon arrival. It smelled as though it had been closed up for a few months, however, opening windows took care of that. It was well stocked with household essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, and soap.
The bedrooms were comfortable and had fans to keep you cool at night. The sheets were stiff and not all that comfortable, but they were clean! Plenty off additional blankets found in each room. And plenty of towels for our 4 night stay.
The kitchen was well stocked with every kitchen essential needed like dishes and pots/pans, wine glasses, cooking utensils. The fringe kept everything super cold and almost frozen!
The house has a great porch with lots of outdoor furniture to enjoy sunrise/sunsets or to watch kids play in the yard.
We spent each night in the dining room playing games. It fit 9 people fairly well.
The town of Boothbay Harbor was a quick 2 minute ride. Plenty of places to eat, purchase souvenirs, and book boat tours. One review said it was walking distance...it’s not an easy walk at all. Lol. I walked it once. There are several large hills to climb. Definitely not a kid friendly walk.
There Is a park with boat launch not too far from the house that was walking distance, but again a significant hill to walk up to return back the the house. The park had a gazebo, wooden rope swing, and picnic tables.
Overall it was a nice place to visit for a fort time trip to Maine.

Amazing, charming farmhouse with a beautiful bay view. The kitchen was fully equipped. Ample parking. Spotless home (props to the cleaning service). Very enjoyable stay in a quaint town.

Close to town
Thought the cleaning fee was high

Loved the location! Super convenient to downtown and a nice view of the water when sitting by the dock. The house provided all of the amenities we needed and the beds were comfortable as well. The large dining room was great for eating in and also playing board games. It accommodated 4 of us extremely comfortably and I love that this is a pet-friendly place! It’s a very lived-in and older home, so if you’re looking for a modern and up-to-date rental, this is not the place for you. If you don’t mind the rustic charm, then this is a great spot to book!
The only noticeable thing upon arrival was some mold in the downstairs toilet and a moldy interior shower curtain at the bottom, which is something that could have been taken care of by housekeeping prior to our stay. Not the owner’s fault, but just overlooked by housekeeping. Overall fantastic stay with lots of memories made.
Hi, Stephanie! We apologize for the housekeeping oversights and have followed-up with our team. The shower curtain has been replaced as well. Thank you!
