Recent Boothbay Harbor guest reviews

Everything was wonderful! A dream get away spot — even a dock from which to Launch my sea kayak 😎. It was also an easy walk into town so you didn’t have to deal with traffic or parking — that was a wonderful bonus as well. We are already hatching a plan to rent the same spot for a few days next June.

The cabin is fantastic- we had plenty of space for 7 adult guests. Well equipped kitchen. Great outdoor space.
