The Bold Colorful Life Estate and Retreat Center......

Come away from it all....catch your breath.
Six miles from the bustle of Boothbay Harbor is a peaceful waterfront retreat, set among rolling lawns, meandering stone walls and richly colored perennial gardens....imagine a place that evokes your fondest memories....and brings your vacation dreams to bold colorful life....
Choose to rent the elegant new Maine farmhouse...a beautiful place in all seasons....or choose to rent the charming newly-renovated 1800s Cape....wake to birdsong in the apple trees and early morning fog on the Back River....then make yourself delicious coffee, a hearty, healthy breakfast to start the day...wander 15 acres of gardens and woodland trails....try out any of our benches or hammocks....borrow an inflatable tandem kayak to paddle with local our friendly bald eagles and other the Maine painted turtles or listen to frogs on the freshwater pond....wander the park-like grounds....take a cool dip in the cove or a sail or paddle on the river...
Refreshed, visit the Bold Colorful Life Gallery for art and jewelry, or venture out into the Boothbay region...the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden is only 4 miles away!
At the end of the day, imagine coming ‘home’ to fix yourself a snack and drink on your porch...a good book by the fire... sunset through the Great Room windows...and a long, delicious sleep in one of your lovely bedrooms decorated in whimsical colors, with private bath, luxurious bedding, paddle fans, cable TV, WiFi....
Renewed again, live your bold and colorful life! Open year-round.
