Just got back from a 3-night stay at the Boothbay Resort and am already thinking about when we can get back there. We (two adults and two big dogs) stayed in the Balsams Suite and from what we understand, were the first guests in the suite this season. Owners Win and Lori Mitchell and their extended families were already in mid-season form though as the entire resort ran like clockwork.
The grounds were beautiful and the room was immaculate. The jacuzzi tub in the suite was a great bonus after long days of hiking with the dogs. There are many amenities at the resort including a bocce court, pool and hot tub, and two putting greens meticulously maintained by the owners' son.
The resort is extremely dog-friendly and Lori went out of her way to supply brochures, and point out good hiking trails for the dogs upon check-in. The resort is within 30 minutes of several Boothbay Region Land Trust properties with beautifully maintained hiking trails. It's also about a 5-10 minute drive to all the restaurants and shoppping that the harbor has to offer.
The Vintage House had oustanding beer, cheese and wine selections, and we enjoyed talking barley ales with Win.
