When waves from the Atlantic Ocean ripple into Linekin Bay, they lose a bit of their bite. That’s because the bay’s horseshoe-shaped cove provides a natural buffer from the sea’s coastline-battering surf. Perched on the sandy shores of one of Boothbay Harbor’s tranquil coves, Sunset Beach is a welcoming inn halfway between Acadia National Park and Boston.
Go swimming at the private beach or outdoor pool.
Enjoy the view: Most guest rooms have shared or private balconies facing the water.
Look for seals and ospreys on a sightseeing boat tour or a self-guided kayaking trip.
East Boothbay, Maine: Quaint Fishing Villages and Groomed Botanical Gardens
Boothbay Harbor’s unofficial motto is “the soul of the coast,” thanks to its central location, smattering of small seaside towns, and bays filled with windjammers and lobster boats. Whale watching, kayaking, fishing, and hiking are popular pursuits along this stretch of scenic beach.
The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens spread across 250 acres of Maine’s coast. Walking trails wind past roses and perennials, a meditation garden, a fairy-house display, and a children’s garden. As you wander through the picturesque property, keep an eye out for pieces from the permanent sculpture collection. For more regional art, head to the Farnsworth Art Museum, where you’ll find an expansive collection of American art that pertains to Maine. The museum’s biggest highlight is its collection of Andrew Wyeth originals.

Neither the bed nor the room were anything to brag about - very average. But the view was outstanding! Beautiful sunsets every evening and very convenient to lots of great restaurants, boating and shopping.
