Antiques and art. Classic yet fun. More 'Shabby Chic' than 'pottery barn.' Private entrance. Private deck. Note: the TV's are excellent, but Network access is basic. If you are coming on vacation to watch something specific on TV plan on using the pub or select another apartment with cable.

Great location, right in the center of town, lots to do within walking distance. Comfortable rooms, and a wonderful deck with a view of the harbor, perfect for a drink or a book.

And best of all,, a friendly, helpful host, always available but always discreet.

It was a perfect stay.

  • 5 of 5

I walked, I ate, I sailed, I napped, I shopped, I listened to concerts and saw the fireworks from the balcony. I loved my visit to 29 McKown Street in Boothbay Harbor. Tom and Ruthie (his Westie) were wonderful hosts. It was a perfect "I" vacation. The apartment was clean and close to everything. I hope I can get back soon. Gail from Florida July 2017

Fully stocked with everything you need. View from the deck of the harbor is nice. Within walking dis

  • 4 of 5

Would recommend for any couple to stay and enjoy Boothbay Harbor area. Less than two blocks walk to the boats to go out in the harbor whale watch, seals, lighthouses hauling up Lobster cages. The botanical gardens the aquarium Lobster Co-op lobster for $7 a pound can't beat it. The Farmers Market on Thursday just outside of Boothbay within a couple miles farmers market, it's very nice fresh produce, sausage, cheese,homemade breads I would like to go back for that. Can't list everything you have to go and check it out yourself two thumbs up

Owner's Response: Very nice and respectful guests who are welcome here any time. I particularly liked the fact that they planned their shopping around the Farmer's market which is a great way to get good food. Tom & Ruthie (by dictation).

This piece of property is sweet!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the 2nd story apartment. It was so sweet! Very clean

and well-maintained. You have everything you need: A nice-sized living room,

kitchen and dining for 2, one bedroom and a full bath. You can see the harbor from the deck.

Net-flix is a luxury for us and we enjoyed it on one of our days there. You can walk to everything.

This was a first for us and it was sweet not to have to jump in the car, at a whim!

We went to a couple of the restaurants for breakfast (blueberry pancakes:) and dinner

(seafood). Caught lunch while we were traveling nearby...The bed was so comfortable

and I was wondering what we were sleeping on. So, when I stripped the bed at the end of our stay:(,

I saw the secret! Now the cat/dog is out of the bag! What's the secret???

Well, you'll just have to rent this little gem and find out for yourself:)!

Tom is so nice. He brought us some English Muffins and cookies. Ruthie

(the Westie) is so sweet too. Yes, I would definitely recommend this to my friends/relatives.

P.S. I loved running into Queen Elizabeth waving from the window!

Owner's Response: Well. Surely the most unique review. And much appreciated. For those who are not unfamiliar with the hand-waving "solar Queen Elizabeth" you'll just have to save that little treat for a visit. Thank you.

Our stay at 29 McKown st., proved to be a perfect choice. The location was right where we wanted to be and Tom and his sidekick Ruthie, were the perfect host's. Everthing that you would want to do, was within walking distance. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Tom,thanks for all your suggestion to fill in our spare time. We hope to see you again.
