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!

"During our recent stay in the Boston area, we decided to spend a couple of days in Boothbay Harbor. We chose the Welch House and it was the smartest decision we made. Our hostess Susan was great. She was friendly, knowledgeable about the area and recommended an outstanding restaurant (McSeagull's for dinner. Our room (Captain's Lady) was exactly what was promised on the website. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast both mornings was outstanding. The fruit was fresh and flavorful, the muffins yummy and the hot breakfast (Day one - frittata and Day two - granola crusted French toast) were quite tasty! The next time we come to Boothbay Harbor we will definitely stay at the Welch House."
