About Becky Schmelzer

My family and I live in Winthrop, ME (lakes region), where my wife, Becky is from, but I am originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts Our family loves the ocean and is the reason why we purchased this home in Boothbay Harbor. The property is private and a few minutes walk to the harbor as well as downtown and minutes to Barrett Park. Barrett Park has wonderful swimming and picnicking area right on the ocean. You can also bring your pet to the park which we love as we are animal lovers and we walk our lab, Jackson around our home all the time.

Becky Schmelzer purchased this house in 2012

Why Becky Schmelzer chose Boothbay Harbor

Boothbay Harbor is a very desirable area of mid coast Maine. My wife is from Maine and Boothbay Harbor has always been a favorite place to come visit. The restaurants and shopping are amazing and we never tire of what the harbor has to offer. The towns people are incredibly friendly and are always welcoming.

What makes this house unique

The privacy is great because of our pets, there is no one on the road but us! But even though we have tons of privacy, we are only a few minutes walk to the harbor which is convenient as once we arrive, we don't have to worry about driving and can really take advantage of the beautiful views and surroundings of the area. We love the footbridge leading into the harbor and starting off our adventure with an ice cream cone as soon as we cross the bridge!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Becky,

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Boothbay Harbor. The weather was beautiful and your gorgeous home was absolutely perfect for us! Everyone raved about how clean, comfortable, spacious and peaceful it was. We cooked several meals in your lovely kitchen and had many laughs around your dining room table. Thank you so very much for making our post-wedding vacation memorable. We will absolutely recommend your home to our friends.

Thanks again!

Ocean Harbor House, Boothbay Harbor, Maine, August 24 to 29, 2017

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this spacious, well equipped home in Boothbay Harbor. The 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths were perfect for the 6 of us. We were happy to have the washer dryer as well. The house is in a very quiet location with about a 10 minute walk to the footbridge to cross into the "downtown" area of Boothbay Harbor. The walk back uphill can be a challenge, but even we grandparents made it. The kitchen is very well equipped. The beds were comfortable. We did not need the AC, but were glad it was available. There were also standing fans which we could use. Becky, the owner, was very responsive to emails prior to our visit, and check in with us by phone during the visit. She recommended Shannons Unshelled, in the "downtown" area right past the footbridge on the right. Excellent lobster!

Wonderful spot to stay in

  • 5 of 5

Becky gave us plenty of information ahead of our stay. The house was equipped with everything we needed to have wonderful home cooked meals as a family together on vacation. Plenty of room to sleep, eat and play and walking distance from everywhere we wanted to be. We loved our stay and had a great time. She was a wonderful host who even went through the trouble of mailing back some belongings we left behind. Can't reccomend this place enough.

Boothbay Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 9 who traveled to Maine for a weeks get away. This home was comfortable and everyone had a bed to sleep in. The kitchen was fully furnished and we enjoyed having a few meals at home. We were within walking distance to the harbor, but the hills are tough to walk. I would recommend this home.
