I recently attended a concert at The Opera House in Boothbay Harbor,Maine. Ben Taylor gave a beautiful intimate session in this historic building. The staff was friendly and the building simply stunning. I enjoyed a tour before and during intermission. Acoustics were great and the line up of shows were diverse. A must see!

Casual, intimate, with a bar if you get there early or have time during intermission. A great place to see a concert. We've been several times, and sat in several places, never disappointed. Also, even in high season we never had a problem parking here a

Actually went there in August of 2012 and saw the Steep Canyon Rangers who had just released "Rare Bird Alert" (Steve Martin and Paul McCartney on the album!) Great cozy venue with bar. Almost always sold out!
