My husband and I recently stayed at the Beach Cove with our young daughters. We found this hotel through a tip by the Trip Advisor forum on Maine. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. There was plenty to do with the kids at the hotel, that we really didn't need to leave the property except to go out to dinner. Our room was equipped with a mini fridge and microwave, so it was easy to heat up dinner left overs for lunch and breakfast was provided. Boothbay Harbor proper was only a 5 minute drive away, so it was easy to get there. The hotel provided canoes and row boats along with life jackets to use on the lake. We saw other guests taking their own kayaks into the lake as well. The pool was heated and well maintained. The best part of the stay was how kind and attentive the staff was. They went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. It was such a nice stay that we will definitely be making the trip back to Beach Cove in the future!
