We stayed at the Shore Cottage, just as the nights were cooling off and we could get full advantage of the wonderful wood-burning fireplace. We loved sitting on the deck overlooking Boothbay Harbor, and kayaking around the harbor. The cottage was comfortable, cozy and we loved it!

For quite a few years now we have been coming back to Harborfields. We'll load up the kayaks and beach chairs and head north.

We rented a skiff for the day and couldn't have been happier with the attention and service. There was a little equipment problem with our boat that they solved quickly and creatively. We did not stay at the cottages but couldn't help but notice how charming the place was and how happy everyone seemed to be staying there. We'll be... More

Thank you for your review! The Boat Rentals are actually offered by a separate business, West Harbor Recreation, Inc., which has its own listing on TripAdvisor under "Things to do in Boothbay Harbor." Nonetheless, we are glad you enjoyed your time on the waters of Boothbay Harbor and here on the docks at Harborfields, and we look forward to welcoming... More

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
