Recent East Boothbay vacation rental reviews

Very comfortable, convenient to everything. Well stocked kitchen. Clean, quiet. Perfect for us!
Cindy B. | May 2022
A lovely rustic home! Over-all a great experience, especially with Vacasa quickly coming to fix a few initial issues. I reduced by one star because of things not clear in the listing: upstairs bedrooms are not connected, accessible by two different staircases. We had some sad cousins unable to stay as close together as they planned. Only bathroom downstairs is only accessible by going through the downstairs bedroom and only bathroom with a shower. Not always ideal for the one sleeping in downstairs bedroom. Bathrooms upstairs have baths only. Minimal plugs, especially in bedrooms. The room I stayed in had one plug behind the bed. I had to unplug a lamp to use it. Only one TV in house, in the kitchen. Again, all minor issues, especially when renting a very old home, but things we wish we had some more clarification about prior to arrival. Cannot say enough about 3 season porch! Lots of charm, nice neighborhood and wonderful area!

This was a beautiful large home on a quiet, secluded property with great views. It had all the amenities we needed. Because it was the winter most stores and restaurants downtown were closed for the season but the house is a short drive so convenient if you’re staying in the summer season. The house was clean and nicely decorated with tons of space. We were a small group just 4 people but the house can accommodate up to 12 so this wasn’t much of an issue for us but could be for a large group- the hot water heater is tankless so runs out quick and so showers need to be spaced out and kept short. Otherwise no complaints and was a great weekend! Side note- this was not the house we originally booked- when we arrived at the original house we found that a pipe had burst and there was water everywhere. Someone from Vacasa came over immediately and found this house for us instead which was less than 2 miles away. The whole situation was handled within half an hour. Ironically this hiccup makes me more inclined to choose vacasa before any other site when booking a house in the future because of how they handled the situation. Great customer service!!

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.
