We just returned last night from a week stay in Boothbay. We traveled with our 7 year old, 2 teenagers, and 2 dogs. We all had a great time, even the teenagers. This house was AWESOME! We were all very comfortable. This house came stocked with everything imaginable that you might need, down to shampoo and moisturizer. The house is very clean and in walking distance to harbor, a very cute general store (also well stocked with things you may need), and a restaurant on the water. The kids loved walking to the store for snacks everyday. Short drive to Hanaford's grocery store which carried everything we use and very reasonably priced. The town of Boothbay is a very quaint town with many shops and many fine restaurants. We rented kayaks our last day in town, everyone really enjoyed. Also had lunch on the water sitting at a boat that's been turned into a bar. Two beaches close by and many short driving distance. Reid State Park about an hour drive but well worth it. Absolutely beautiful, crystal clear water. Only draw back the biting flies. We were sad to say goodbye to Maine. On the way home the kids asked if we can come back next year. Our 16 year old said best vacation ever!!! And we all agree! Thank you!!! I woud highly recommend renting this house and visiting Boothbay.
