Off-Season Arrival and Departure dates may be flexible. __________________________________ In the heart of Ocean Point in East Boothbay, a treasured family home is ready for you to settle in for a memorable Maine Vacation. Just six miles from Boothbay Harbor, The Villa provides a 180 degree view of Linekin Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. This 115 year old property with five bedrooms and three baths is the quintessential Maine summer home. Ideal for families or couples traveling together. Views, views and more views are what make The Villa so popular and memorable. ____________________________________ This home is classic, timeless, and a vacationer's dream. Everywhere you look you can see the ocean, islands and big blue sky. Views of Linekin Bay can be seen to the West and North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South. Bask in the warmth of the shore breezes while relaxing on the enclosed porch and take delight in wondrous sunset dinners. Adults and children alike will find something special about The Villa, whether it be the large yard for outdoor play or getting cozy by the fireplace on those chilly summer nights. Water access  is available at Grimes Cove Beach, less than 2 miles away in Ocean Point. Grimes Cove Beach also has a boat ramp available for launching small watercraft. The Ocean Point Colony, as it exists today with many of its original 19th century cottages, remains primarily a residential community. Many of the cottages have been with these families for generations. Walking, jogging and biking along the shore are memorable experiences where the spruce meets the sea; for both visitors and year-round locals.  __________________________________________ THE HOUSE: Original wide-pine floors throughout the house offset the birch wood walls perfectly. Floor to ceiling windows allow light and colors to infuse the rooms of this 115 year old cottage. Enter through the galley-style kitchen on the main floor with all modern amenities, including a dishwasher. The butcher block table is a newer addition and adds even more work space. There is a washer and dryer in the utility room off of the kitchen. The open dining area has seating for at least 8 and includes a small sitting area at the large bay window. Play a game of chess or simply gaze out at the water beyond the road. An office room is off the dining room with a large desk and comfy seating for enjoying a movie or cable on the flat screen TV.  Pass through the office to get to the 3/4 bathroom with shower. Beyond the dining room is a sitting room with more seating and gas fireplace. A smaller TV with DVD player is in this room as well. Round the corner and head up the staircase to the second floor. Upstairs are five charming bedrooms with ocean views. Floor to ceiling windows make waking up a special part of each day. Three of the bedrooms have Queen Beds, one has a Double Bed and the last bedroom has two Single beds. Two (2) 3/4 bathrooms with showers complete the second floor. _____________________________________ BEDROOMS: (1) Queen, (1) Queen, (1) Queen, (1) Double, (1) Set Single-Size Bunk Beds BATHROOMS: (1) 3/4 Bathroom with shower, sink & toilet on the first floor, and (2) 3/4 Bathrooms with shower, sink & toilet. __________________________________ PETS PERMITTED?

There are several little communities that are part of East Boothbay. Rich in boat building history, East Boothbay in renowned the world over for the ship yards of the region. Guests have access to the “Casino” (the local community center dating back to 1905) which offers daily and weekly activities.
