A great little take-out ice cream shack located just before Hannaford's as you drive into Boothbay Harbor proper. There is plenty of parking, the staff is very friendly, and the ice creams are delicious and huge and cheap.

Hot day, cold ice cream on a Sunday. Life doesn't get any better, The scoops are huge. I got the kids and it was more than I could eat. My husband had the medium and it was equal to 4 scoops at a chain ice cream shop

Sarah's scoops was delicious. The night before my family and I went to Downeast Icecream (#1 on tripadvisor) but this was so much better. My toasted coconut cone was delicious. My dad's Strawberry cheesecake was surprisingly delicious. Both of the ice cream flavors were some of the best that I've ever had. If you are in Boothbay Harbor this is... More

This small ice cream shop has excellent ice cream with some unique flavors in season. Also their single scoops are really quite generous!

So convenient, right on the way into Boothbay. Sarah's looks like a converted chicken coop, but don't let the exterior fool you. Always friendly, experienced young people behind the window. If you LOVE ice cream, get a small cone, because they are ginormous. If you NEED ice cream to live, get a medium. If you want to die of ice... More

This is a friendly ice cream stand serving the best ice cream in Maine.....Giffords along with many other offerings. There is something for everyone. Servings are more than generous. There are picnic tables under the trees and plenty of parking spaces. Giffords ice cream is the best we have tasted and this is the place to get it.

Sarah's Scoops is just down the road from the B&B we were staying at. Every time we drove by, there were plenty of cars in the parking lot and people up on the steps waiting to get ice cream. We stopped by after dinner and stood in line for a few minutes. They use Gifford's Ice Cream which has lots... More

We stopped here last year and loved it! This year, we almost made the mistake of ordering medium sized cones--the small ones are plenty big enough! Large selection of flavors -- tonight we had Caramel Caribou, and Rocky Road. Great ice cream, and friendly and helpful staff.
