My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, just arriving home last night. What a beautiful spot. East Boothbay is wonderful, away from the crowds and noise. The inn sits in a beautiful location, right on a bay with a public access dock and nice quiet roads to wander. The rooms are very clean. The afternoon tea features warm homemade cookies every day! Breakfast was a real delight for this foodie ;-) There were all sorts of delicious options every morning, and the hosts go out of there way to make sure every guest feels welcome, has what they need, etc. I truly cannot think of one thing they need to change! Steve and Susan, the new owners, have more than stepped into a role they are very, very good at! I applaud all of their hard work, we cannot wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imagine waking with the blissful feeling that your room resembles a Maine cottage overlooking a picturesque bay. Scenic and Serene East Boothbay is a 200 year old village just 5 minutes from Boothbay Harbor, Maine, though you will feel light years away. Here we enjoy peaceful mornings on the inns porch, no traffic passing by, and a view of the lobster boats bobbing in the harbor. Yet a short five minute drive puts you in the middle of Boothbay Harbor with windjammers, trips to Monhegan Island, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, lobster eating, galleries and shopping. ... more less
