Children count as people! No pets for long-term winter stays.

 
Snug and toasty by the fire, you can watch the storms sweep across the bay, the seasmoke, the seagulls riding the updrafts, and an occasional eagle. In Boothbay Harbor, just three miles away, at least one of the best restaurants is open every day and there is plenty of parking; the pace is a little slower and the attention a little warmer. There are many events around the holidays including Gardens Aglow at the Botanical Gardens, the whole town is decorated, and the historic Opera House has programs (not opera) year-round.
