Don't Be Frozen, Let It Go!

Yes, it's winter here in Maine, and though it's cold outside, it's warm as can be in here by the fire, watching the play of sunlight on the sugar-frosted harbor. And speaking of play, that's just what we like to do here off season. Get a few friends to come up together, and play some games in front of the fire. Head out to Robinson's Wharf, the Boathouse Bistro or the Opera House and hear some great musicians play. Or snuggle in and share a little private play time with the one you love. You'll find our room rates are reasonable (and we're always running some kind of special), and even the drive is no worry with gas prices lower than they've been in years. Throw in a couple of our delicious gourmet breakfasts and you'll be glad you came! A beautiful Dock surrounded by sea-smoke during the winter in Boothbay Harbor

"Maine, your weather may be dreary, but this B&B is a little slice of heaven. We selected this place by accidently straying up a little lane to the top of a hill! We were lucky as May and June is still offseason, so we did not required reservations, and ended up staying for 3 nights. Mike and Susan were best friends by then. Our room was wonderful with a great bed, and the view from both the 2 decks (try the deck on the 4th floor for a Birdseye view) and dining room was stunning. Every restaurant recommended was the best, and Susan's breakfast.....simply scrumptious (take a bag of their homemade granola back home with you). Downtown Boothbay was within easy walking distance, with restaurants and boating activity abounding. So even with the misty rain it was a definite highlight of our 14 day-4000 mile trip"
