Additional Location Information

The property is located on the Back River, on the Boothbay peninsula, four miles from the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and six miles from Boothbay Harbor itself. The fifteen acre estate is near the end of a quiet, peaceful residential road which follows the Back River for almost 4 miles. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking and hiking all begin right here. There is a cove at the bottom of the lawn which opens out into the river. Regular guests include a pair of bald eagles, a friendly porcupine, cove seals and local deer. A female moose crosses the property every Fall. There are hiking trails in a dozen preserves within 10 miles; one of them around the corner--Ovens Mouth.
Boothbay Harbor offers restaurants, shopping, galleries, saltwater activities.
