The Boothbay Harbor Region is perfectly situated to provide residents and visitors alike with the very best that Maine has to offer. Located within a reasonable commuting distance of most major Maine cities, this mid-coast peninsula offers the perfect balance between small town coastal charm and urban accessibility.
Individual Character and Charm
The Boothbay Harbor Region is comprised of several small towns, each with their own individual character and charm. Located on one of the many peninsulas that defines Maine’s unique coastline, our communities have strong ties to the maritime traditions that have shaped this area for centuries. With one of the best boating harbors north of Boston, this area has long been the home to fishermen and sea captains and has attracted the notice of top notch marine biologists as well.
Our peninsula is also home to nature lovers, botanists, gardeners, artists, merchants, and entrepreneurs. Many non-profit organizations call this region home and work hard to further their missions in support of the arts, seamanship and marine education, conservation, historic preservation, and more.
With small town coastal charm, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, East Boothbay, Edgecomb, Newcastle, Southport, and Wiscasset also offer easy access to most of Maine’s major cities, offering the perfect balance between simple and sophisticated and work and play.
