Recent East Boothbay guest reviews

Very peaceful and serene. Just what we were looking for.
Anita A. | Jun 2024
Sitting on top of a hill, this house is super roomy with lots of big windows to see the ocean, watch an amazing sunrise or view the lobster boats as they collect their overnight catch. The path down to the rocky beach could be better groomed, but it is doable with good shoes. The house has 2 king suites (plus another bedroom with 2 twin beds) and ample room to relax in 3 living room areas (one with a tv) as you unwind from a day trip to Boothbay Harbor or points beyond. Numerous good restaurants are 10-15 minutes away and there is a convenient grocery store about 10 minutes away. The wooded area along the ride to the house boasts different wildlife so watch for a deer or turkey!! WiFi was very good. Kitchen was well stocked. Grill was provided. Views from the expansive deck were amazing!! No air-conditioning, but the house has so many screened windows and doors, the ocean breeze makes it quite comfortable!! We hope to return again!!

We LOVED the Sailor's Cabin. It was just as pictured in the listing. Beds were comfortable and cabin was well stocked with plenty of towels and kitchen equipment. We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the view. Loved watching the birds and even saw a seal swim by a few times. Cabin is rustic, but we loved this!

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.
