Recent East Boothbay vacation rental reviews

Had every amenity!
Anthony P. | Jan 2024
The unit (1 of 3) is nicely appointed and well equipped. The views are lovely. There was only one parking space available - not an issue for us but may be an issue for others. The mattress is the master should be replaced - it is very soft, lumpy and somewhat uncomfortable. Overall tho, a clean, lovely spot to stay. We would rent again.
Anne Y. | Nov 2023
Was a bit concerned going in based on some of the more recent reviews, but for our trip, every negative critique that this property had been given was taken care of when we arrived. The TV was new and worked perfectly - even a smart TV so that we could log into our own streaming choices, new couches, clean, etc. The house itself is in a word - EPIC. The location, the design, the view, all amazing. We've rented 15+ homes for vacations - from Maine to the USVI and this was the first house we felt sad leaving. If you're looking for entertainment, probably not the right place for you - if you are looking to disconnect from the crazy world and just relax - this is the place.

East Boothbay excursions

One of five villages in the Boothbay Harbor region, East Boothbay impresses due to its small-town feel and friendly populace. The village's rich maritime history is one of the many reasons visitors head here annually. Local boat captains allow guests to accompany them on lobster-hauling expeditions and families are welcome to take a trip on a windjammer around the harbor. You can even rent a boat to explore the numerous coves and area lighthouses on your own, or take your turn trolling for tuna and striper on a sport fisherman. 

Things to do in East Boothbay, ME

Not everything in East Boothbay is about the sea - there's plenty to do on land as well. The Linekin Preserve & Burley Loop offers nearly 150 acres of woodland and approximately three miles of varied terrain near the Damariscotta River. The Boothbay Sea and Science Center boasts exhibits on boating and science throughout the year. Clambakes are the norm in this region, and diners can watch local fishermen prep lobsters and other shellfish at the water's edge...and then head back to their East Boothbay vacation rental to prepare a home-cooked meal with their fresh catch!

Art galleries are in abundance in East Boothbay, and most feature prominent local and up-and-coming talents. Down East Gallery showcases the prowess of Brad Betts, an artist specializing in maritime and floral scenes. Ocean Point Studio focuses on oil and watercolor paintings, and the artists behind Paradise Studio refinish furniture as well as sell oil seascapes. 

Day trips from East Boothbay, ME

The entire Boothbay region is home to well-maintained nature preserves, bucolic towns, and coastal islands. Take a trip to nearby Boothbay Harbor and check out the Coastal Maine Botanic Gardens, Maine State Aquarium or Burnt Island Lighthouse. Edgecomb, Newcastle, and Southport are small enough to get lost in - if that's your intent - but offer a variety of delights, from cozy waterside restaurants to historic lighthouses to hiking trails. For a true escape from the everyday, head to nearby Monhegan Island, a rocky outcrop with no paved roads or streetlights and 17 miles of walking trails.  

Whether it's a trip to a nature preserve or a jaunt to one of the area galleries, our East Boothbay Harbor vacation rentals are a great base from which to explore the idyllic pleasures of this peaceful seaside village.
