Warm spot! Our children and others of that ilk while partaking of a refreshing dip off the dock in Harborfields own part of the Atlantic would shout out when they encountered a warm current in the water. Harborfields hold a warm spot in our vacation experience. For more than twenty years (and more if you count my wife's childhood trips)... More

Hi Jack, Thank you for your great review! Just today a prospective guest asked about the water temperatures in early August, for their kids swimming. Off the top of my head, I said probably about 65°F, possibly as warm as 70°F. But we can do better than that -- the Maine Department of Marine Resources has been measuring the sea... More

This was at least our 6th stay at Harborfields. In fact we chose to be married there 8 years ago. First it is a beautiful property, lovingly cared for by 6 generations of the Thorpe family...and you can feel the love! You feel like you are in a home rather than an impersonal cookie cutter type place. This year we... More

Harborfields Cottages is a wonderful location on Boothbay Harbor. Pets and children are welcomed with lots of grassy areas to play on. Launching kayaks is doable from the large pier, however if you need a boat launch you'll have to drive to a nearby beach. Kayak shop in Boothbay Harbor has great tours and free advice/information.

Thank you for your nice review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. For those interested in bringing kayaks or other boats, there are two launching ramps within a 1/2 mile of us. The first is the town boat ramp on Townsend Gut, at the end of Landing Road -- essentially across the street from Harborfields -- also a... More

We stayed in the Hillside Cottage at Harborfields. The cottage was comfortable, well maintained, and had all of the items we needed in terms of linens, towels, and kitchen items for our stay. The deck was particularlly wonderful and had beautiful views of the harbor. The property is minutes from the town of Boothbay Harbor and other tourist attractions, yet... More

12 years ago when we first came to Harborfields we fell in love with Boothbay Harbor so much so that we purchased land for our retirement. Since then we have come to think of Harborfields as our home away from home and have decided that even when we retire we will continue to vacation here. There is so much that... More

Hi Sue H, Thank you for the wonderful review! Over the years, we've had many long-time guests who decide to buy their own second home in the area, a tribute to all that the Boothbay Harbor region has to offer. We're glad you are still coming to Harborfields for your vacations, despite your investment in property! More

We recently stayed at Harborfields for a 3 night visit and we were extremely pleased with our stay from check-in to check-out. The resort is only about a 5 minute drive from downtown Boothbay Harbor if the need for restaurants or gift shops arises. We stayed at the Wharf Cottage which is basically a stand alone efficiency unit and we... More

Thank you for your wonderful review! What a great way to break the ice and get us started with reviews on TripAdvisor! While we don't have any kayaks, we do have a couple of rowboats available for guests to use free of charge (lifejackets can be found in the box on the dock). Kayaks can be rented in town at... More
