The Way Life Should Be. . .

If you've never been to Boothbay Harbor before (or Maine, for that matter) then it's time you made plans to visit this magical seaside village. The beauty of the scenery is only surpassed by the friendliness of the people. When we first moved up here 13 years ago the Maine state slogan was "The Way Life Should Be", and as far as we're concerned that statement is spot-on! Many of our guests return year after year because they agree wholeheartedly (plus, returning guests receive welcome gifts, room upgrades, and other perks, just for being a part of the Welch House family).

Do your tastes run toward outdoor adventures like hiking, kayaking, sailing, fishing? We've got plenty of that and more. Enjoy browsing art galleries and collecting the work of fine artisans and craftsmen? Check. We've got the country's best garden according to Trip Advisor – the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden – plus a narrow gage railroad and antique car museum. You'll find live music performances in a variety of genres, and several of Maine's top restaurants all within walking distance.

So, what are you waiting for? Be sure to check out our calendar of events to see what’s happening, and check out our specials page to get one of the best deals in town.

"Welch House is a great option in Boothbay Harbor. The top of the hill location provides a spectacular view of the harbor and easy walking access to the shops and restaurants of the town. Michael greeted us and gave an excellent recommendation for dinner. We had two rooms, both nicely furnished, with comfortable beds and very clean baths. The public area is very pleasant, with complimentary coffee and tea and wine for purchase. The weather was outstanding during our stay, so we spent much of our time on the outdoor deck, enjoying the bug free evening air. We took advantage of the deck for breakfast too. Everything was delicious and we all agreed that the coffee was the best ever."
