INSIDE THE HOUSE
Past and present coexist in this beautiful home, beginning with the stunning main floor. Hang up your coat and take off your shoes in the “Boot Room” and enter into the inviting living room. With cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, windows on 3 sides, and a built-in bookshelf that stretches all the way to the ceiling, you may feel like you’re in the hold of a 19th century schooner. Open a book and relax on the couches or in the comfortable wing chair. You’ll find a flat-screen TV here, as well.
Guests will love the fully equipped country kitchen, with its substantial wooden worktables, woodstove (non-working), and plenty of cast iron cookware for whipping up Apple Pan Dowdy and Indian Pudding the way Grandma used to make them. Enjoy a meal at the wooden dining table in the elegantly appointed dining room, with French doors that look out onto the garden.
The master bedroom is located on the main floor, and is furnished with an antique double spindle bed. It enjoys a lovely garden view through French doors to the backyard, and lots of sweet, traditional touches, including a private library and reading nook.
You’ll also find the master bath, complete with claw-foot tub and shower, on the main floor. It’s shared with the 3rd bedroom, located just off the kitchen and furnished with a full-size bed.
Climb the traditional staircase and you’ll find the 2nd bedroom, with double bed, exposed beams, and stunning harbor views, plus the 2nd bath.
The upper level is also home to a bright studio space, ready and waiting for your artistic pursuits. Bring your manuscript or work on your next album. The harbor views here are sure to inspire you.
Kids and hopeless romantics, alike, will fall in love with the rustic bunkhouse off the garden, furnished with a twin bed and lots of antiques, including a dollhouse and a comfortable rocker. Let the sounds of a distant fog horn and coastal birds sing you to sleep as you nap here, dreaming of another era.
Last but certainly not least, our house boasts a well-tended organic garden for you to enjoy. A local gardener visits twice a week to harvest produce for your next salad or vegetable side.
Besides overlooking the water, the house is within walking distance of the town of Boothbay Harbor, which boasts lots to do both on and offshore.
Just a 5-minute drive away you’ll find Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, a 250-acre waterside haven where you can smell the roses or pause for meditation. Catch this season’s blooms and keep an eye out for the sculptures that call the gardens home.
Enjoy a traditional Maine clam bake on Cabbage Island, catch a show at Carousel Musical Theater, or simply explore the shops and cafes downtown. Be sure to take a tour of the Burnt Island Light Station while you’re here for a peek at a classic Maine lighthouse.
