  • Things To Do

    Something for Everyone

    The list of activities to enjoy while visiting Boothbay Harbor is almost endless. Our location in the center of town means a quick two-minute walk will bring you to to the waterfront, art galleries, shopping and restaurants.

    On the Water

    Explore the harbor by kayak or enjoy the coastline view from a traditional wooden sailing vessel. Head out with a nature guide in search of whales, seals, puffins, and more. You might spend the day exploring on Monhegan Island, feasting at a New England clambake, learning about lobstering, deep-sea fishing, or visiting the living history museum at Burnt Island Lighthouse. And you can always just sit and watch it all go by!

    On Land

    On dry land there is also plenty of activity just a short drive away. Be amazed at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, on the 30 miles of nature trails preserved by Boothbay Region Land Trust, take a picnic to the park or a walk along the sea wall at Ocean Point. The golf course, state aquarium, railway village, and an exceptional YMCA gym are all just minutes away.


    From the historic Opera House to night spots on the pier with live music, summer theater at the playhouse, a traditional music dinner theater and first run movies at the small-town, one-screen Harbor Theater, there's a surprising array.

    Heading Off the Rock

    Don't spend your vacation loading and unloading luggage and unpacking in a new spot every night! Our Boothbay Harbor location is ideal as a base from which to explore Maine's midcoast region.

    We are within an hour's drive to Freeport, Brunswick, historic Bath, Wiscasset, Damariscotta, Camden and Rockland which include the home of LL Bean and 200 other upscale outlets, Maine State Music Theather and Bowdoin College, the Maine Maritime Museum, Popham State Beach and Reid State Park, Pemaquid Lighthouse, the Farnsworth Museum, Owl's Head Transportation Museum, Cellardoor Vineyards and the auto road to the top of Mt. Battie at Camden Hills State Park. And that's just for starters!

  • Intimate Weddings and Gatherings

    Our front lawn overlooking the harbor and ocean is the place for a wedding ceremony. Let us help you create a memorable celebration that could include champagne, passed hors d'oeuvres, a casual lobster picnic or intimate catered brunch, lunch or dinner. We can accommodate up to 29 guests for a very special event. We can help you plan all of your intimate affairs, including engagements, elopements, weddings, anniversary parties and family reunions.
