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 rented 3 cottages for our family of 11 people and one dog. the weather gods were smiling, producing a perfect week.
The cottages are clean and well equipped for cooking, barbecuing and otherwise feeding the family. There is a good grocery store in Boothbay with several smaller places to get food and produce. The Boothbay area has much to offer including a range of restaurants for anybody's tastes.
This is perfect for families who enjoy the out of doors, the rugged sea coast of Maine, and time away from the hectic world. There is no TV! Which in my mind is a wonderful thing. The wifi service is a bit spotty in some of the cottages, but there is good reception in the gazebo and on the porch outside of the office. There are even dozens of board games and jigsaw puzzles that can be borrowed for rainy day entertainment. Most cottages seem to have some books for good reading as well. The views are entrancing. It has been fun getting to know families that have returned over the years.
