Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Community Information

Boothbay Harbor (in town)

Is where the action is. Have everything at your fingertips: restaurants, shops, galleries, concerts, boating and fishing. The town bustles with activity during July and August as if it were in the midst of a perpetual festival. Earlier and later in the season the atmosphere of this seaside fishing village is peaceful and casual. Walk along the wharves and watch fishing and pleasure boats going about their business, as they have for generations. Stroll along the brick sidewalks and enjoy the interesting shops and lovely homes rise up the hills around the harbor.

Boothbay Harbor - East Side and Lobster Cove: Just across the footbridge from down town the east side of Boothbay Harbor has the most of the town's hotels and restaurants. You can dine in elegant surroundings with excellent services and beautiful views of the Harbor or eat your lobsters right on the dock and watch the boats load their catches. The famous catholic church, our Lady Queen of Peace, (probably the most photographed spot in the area) overlooks the Harbor form the hill. Across from the church is the fisherman's Memorial Park. Over the hill behind the church the land drops away to Lobster Cove on the west side of Linekin Bay.

"Sprucewold" With charm and feel of another era, is a special place. Travel the winding roads among the tall spruces and absorb the quiet community of log cabins built long ago. Close to town yet tucked away from the hustle and bustle.

Spruce Point:
Located at the mouth of the Harbor on its east side. This area houses Spruce Point Inn, and from most of the private homes locates in Spruce Point you have spectacular Ocean or Harbor views. Burnt Island Light House is visible from the area of town.
