My husband and I took our 3 kids and they loved the hotel and the canoeing available at the hotel.

Beautiful grounds and view, unlimited adventure!

Posted Jul 23, 2017
Very tentative, hard working staff. My family stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. My son caught a striper from his kayak and many largemouth in the fishing pond. Played in the pool and enjoyed the mini golf. Very quiet and secluded resort yet so close to Booth-bay Harbor. Our fishing charter was only two miles up the road and we lost count of how many we landed on Catch22. Capt Troy was a great pleasure!

A total jewel rustic but modern

Posted Jul 19, 2017
What an incredibly beautiful resort. Rustic yet modern with great amenities. Gorgeous views, lovely grounds, friendly and very helpful staff! Close to Boothbay Harbour and other stunning must visit places of interest. I arrived and within an hour or so I extended by stay by one day: I would have extended by more if I had the opportunity. A highly recommended must visit and must stay place! Love it!

Beautiful location, but wi-fi was so slow as to be unusable.

Great location

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Very nice stay. We were located right on the water with a terrific view from our back deck. There were a lot of things to do including canoeing, kayaking, basketball and tennis. The breakfast staff was great.

40th anniversary trip for my wife and I. Had a nice time here. close enough drive to area attractions. The Botannical Gardens are wonderful. Drove to Popham Beach and Boothbay Harbor also. Nice local dining and the resort had a great breakfast.

Pros: The staff was the best!
Cons: The grounds were clearly run down overall. The rooms on the inside were fine.
Location: We went to decompress for a few days which was perfect. I wouldn't stay in Boothbay much longer.
It was overall a great time! Relaxing and fun. Boothbay, however , is not the place to spend a week at. There is just not enough to do.

I'm happy to hear how happy you were with our staff members but sorry that you were disappointed with a couple of aspects of your visit. I have to say that I'm quite surprised about your comments on the grounds. It's one of the areas that we get the most positive comments from our guests. Although your posting was recent, perhaps your actual stay was prior to things coming into bloom and the freshly planted flowers not in yet for the season? That could also explain your comments about Boothbay not having enough to keep you busy. It's a wonderful town that many of our guests return to year after year.
