Smugglers Cove Inn is located right on Linekin bay, just 10 minutes from Boothbay Harbor. Very friendly and accommodating owners/staff, with clean, simple rooms, and great recreational facilities (pool, kayaks). We spend a lot of time in the area, and Smugglers Cove is our go-to location.

My husband and I have been coming to Smuggler’s Cove each summer for the past 3 years. We love the overall feel of the staff and community they have, as well as absolutely everything else they have to offer. We love this place and are never disappointed. We look forward to coming back next summer!

Hi Wanted to somehow get away as the summer season kicked in and didn't know what to expect. The Smugglers Cove Inn worked perfect for a 4 day mini vacation last week. The modest family run hotel was spotless and the owners had made sure that distancing and sanitation protocols were being observed, but it wasn't intrusive. Most everything you might expect from a small resort type setting was there, Pool, kayaks, fire pit in the evening. The Inn has a wonderful setting the owners are warm and friendly, and it was a great way to escape the locked down feeling of the past few months, eat a lot of lobster and have a great Maine coastal experience.

Beautiful location in East Boothbay overlooking Linekin Bay. We stayed in the loft which is an older building but in great shape and our room was perfect. We stayed for 2 nights and each evening we enjoyed the fire pit while watching a fantastic sunset. Kayaks and a canoe are available for our use and the pool was very nice with acceptable temperatures. We felt we really hit the jackpot staying here and can't say enough about this wonderful place. Though the restaurants is currently closed they did provide a continental breakfast and when we asked for some milk we got it within minutes. Totally recommend this place for anyone that wants a great get away.

The view is amazing. Being directly on the ocean was so refreshing. A little disappointed the front desk said the restaurant/bar was open when it wasn't, but covid issues unfortunately, so understandable. We opted for the pet friendly room so it was not ac'd, but we came in early June and with the sliding glass door to the patio left open, it was completely fine. The town is gorgeous, definitely check out the wharf. We can't decide if the outdoor 80° pool was our favorite or the dock where you can float and relax. Will definitely be back.
