It's Here! It's Spring!

It's hard to believe, but only a few short weeks ago we still had an amazing amount of snow on the ground. Spring has sprung with a vengeance here in the midcoast of Maine. In fact, rumor has it that the temperature should reach 70°(!) next week.

Imagine that.

So it really is time to start planning your vacation this year. Want to experience a Cabbage Island Clambake? How about a Reggae Cruise with the Dani Tribesmen? Go striper fishing with Cpt. Dan on the Blackjack, or if deep-sea fishing is more your speed, the Bingo leaves from Pier 8 twice a day. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is always adding new exhibits, but if you would rather just hike, the Boothbay Region Land Trust has almost a thousand acres of pristine woods and shoreline to explore.

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. Returning Guests receive welcome gifts, room upgrades, and other perks, just for being a part of the Welch House family.

"I stayed here the end of September. A gorgeous weekend. Michael and Susan are very gracious hosts. Welcomed us into the Inn, showed us to our rooms. The rooms are what you would expect from an old home. Small but comfortable. The bathrooms are also small but clean, they are either en suite or down the hall. If down the hall, it is just for your use. You get a key so you can keep it private. The room descriptions explain if your bathroom is en suite or down the hall a short distance. Our weather was so beautiful we spent most of the day and nights on the deck with snacks and wine. The view is amazing and ever changing. We did venture to Rockport and Savage Oakes Winery for a tour of the grounds and a tasting! We had a great time chatting with the other guests. A good group. The breakfasts were amazing!! I love their homemade granola. We also had dinner at Thistle Inn - fantastic!! We will be back!!!"
