“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

One of the best hotel/resort out there.
Fun for the whole family. The service is incredible.
Owners are very welcoming. Very nice, beautiful, clean, quiet and enjoyable hotel/resort.
Thank you we had so much fun. Even the 7 hour drive from NY was very much worth it.

The balcony room was worth the extra $10. The view down to the lake was very enjoyable to just sit and watch. The number of sea birds that fly in and out is incredible. The breakfast included fruit,blueberry muffins and danishes. The staff was helpful in locating restaurants and things to do. If you have any mobility issues, access to the first floor balcony rooms is easy. It is a steep walk to and from the lake area but worth the effort if you are able. They have a rowboat and canoes available too which is a nice touch. Our only problem was the people just above us seemed to be practicing for a marching band at all hours of the night!

I've stayed at the Beach Cove Hotel a couple of times, and I am always happy with the service I get. This time was no exception. Great location of the hotel. It is very quite and close to the downtown.

This resort was wonderful. It was everything I was looking for in Maine. It was quiet while on the resort but so close to town that I could never be bored. The staff was excellent and accommodating. A simple breakfast helps start your day of leisure or adventure. If you want to see Maine but don’t want to spend a lot and not get anything for it, come stay here. I would definitely recommend this place to others! (They're pet friendly too)

We stayed a few days. We felt safe and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. I chose the Beach Cove Hotel purposely to be out of town. Even though out of town, it is maybe 10 minutes to town. Make sure you slow down for the 2 big curves in the road.
The hotel is quiet and since it's located in a cove, you have a teensy piece of beach. One of the other visitors was an avid fisherman and would catch the local fish and have the cook prepare it for their supper! The pool is refreshing and the rooms clean and adequate. The restaurant has interesting characters to entertain and feed you.The building is very old and neat. If you have problems with stairs, it might be a knee buster. But the rest of the property is very "walk" friendly. Bring a FAT wallet for dinner. The manager was very friendly and helpful. She helped us plan whalewatching and visits while in the area and helped us try to figure out the best route to Bar Harbor. Other options off hotel property: We went to an early supper one night down the road at the restaurant on the water. It was FABULOUS and they have specials. Yum. I think somewhere downtown we had gotten a coupon for a buy one get one 1/2 off meal. The general store down the road is worth a stop also. While at Boothbay you HAVE to go on one of the whale watch boats. We went with Capn Fish and were not disappointed. During the outing we saw not only 2 different whales but basking sharks and seals and hawks and sea birds. It was so enjoyable, but I wish I would have brought a warmer coat and more sunscreen. Don't forget your sunglasses! My daughter and I came to Maine to whalewatch. I hope to repeat the trip in 10 years..................if there are enough whales to watch.
