Why stay with us?

Why stay with us?

Seanook from the air on a Fall morning by Jack Keegan Come to relax in the calming environment, or visit and participate in the activities of bustling Boothbay Harbor just three miles away. Our location at the head of Linekin Bay offers you the best of both worlds.  Sequestered at the edge of woods and water, you can enjoy rest from your normal everyday sounds and sights while taking in the view of sparkling water and nature teaming around you, yet be close to gourmet restaurants, the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library, State of Maine Aquarium, events at the Opera House, boat excursions, and varied shops.   Hiking abounds in the area on Boothbay Region Land Trust trails, or follow our directions to treck from here to Boothbay Harbor over the water and through the woods.  Borrow one or more of our kayaks or a rowboat to paddle on the bay. Fish off our dock (Seanook only) or swim in our warmer-than normal cove waters, beach comb, or just sit and enjoy the changes of tide, wind and weather occurring around you.   Mary Ellen’s gardens offer more opportunities for relaxation and contemplation with multiple seating choices sprinkled throughout.  Or come visit Paradise Studio to view her landscapes and seascapes in oil. Both our cottages have full kitchens, two baths with showers, floor to ceiling windows, washer and dryer, and expansive decks for outside living. Breath easy; everything you need is...

Here are some of the highlights....

Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage

This beautiful September weather we are having portends great Fall color next month.  To the north of here it has already started and is gradually moving down the state.  It should arrive here in earnest by the second week of October and basically last all month barring a ferocious wind storm.  These photos are from October 20 last year. We still have open at Seanook four nights coming up this season, October 20 – 23, 2013.  The best restaurants will be open.  Ports of Italy will serve through November 3.  That time of year you will be able to drive right onto the dock to park for McSeagull’s.  The pace is a bit slower and the attention a little...
