First snow!  It’s time to be dreaming of summer again…wandering off on an adventure…escaping to Maine.


As you think of your loved ones and search for gifts they would enjoy this holiday season,
just imagine this:
Come away from it all....catch your breath. 
Six miles from the bustle of
Boothbay Harbor is a peaceful waterfront retreat, set among
rolling lawns, meandering stone walls and richly colored perennial gardens....

....imagine a place that evokes your fondest memories....and brings your vacation dreams to bold colorful life....


Choose a room in the elegant new Maine farmhouse…or in the charming
newly-renovated 1800s

Wake to delicious coffee, birdsong in the apple trees and early morning fog on the Back
then enjoy a hearty, healthy breakfast buffet....wander 15 acres of gardens and
woodland trails....borrow a kayak to paddle with local seals....
watch the Maine painted
turtles or listen to frogs on the freshwater pond....wander the park-like grounds....take a
cool dip in the cove or a sail on the river....visit the Boothbay peninsula….and the
Botanical  Gardens just 4 miles away….
