After the busy buzzing of the holidays, winter can provide hours of quiet reflection and the chance for serenity. While we locals do hunker down for a bit during the odd blustery nor’easter, tend to our woodpile, and shovel the walkways, we also thoroughly enjoy our region in the so-called “off-season”.
Some snow days are meant for slowly perusing local shops and galleries, or snowshoeing, across a snowy field and wondering at the milky way above. The stars just seem brighter in Maine!
Longing for a quiet quaint getaway, where you can cozy up with a great read, and unplug from the world for a bit while still having all the creature comforts? Click here to explore our Winter Lodging
Bundle up and head out on a wintery hike to commune with nature: Boothbay Harbor Land Trust trails are open to the public, year-round, free of charge. Properties include woodlands, wetlands, salt marshes, islands, seabird and wading bird habitats, and feeding areas for migratory birds. Maybe we’ll get a return of the Stellar’s Sea Eagle!
Do you still get out on the water in the winter? Absolutely! Our region is beautiful any time of year, and you’ll get a great view from the water. Take a Harbor Tour or Private Sightseeing adventure with Charger Sports Fishing – and enjoy the breathtaking coastline from their new cozy heated cabin before heading back for browsing shops, galleries, Restaurants & Breweries in Boothbay Harbor.
