Lodging, Travel & Tourism

The Boothbay Harbor Region offers a selection of lodging options that are as unique as our coastline.

The idea of a perfect vacation is not the same for everyone, and that is certainly true when it comes to finding a place to stay. No matter what you are looking for though, the Boothbay Harbor Region has just the spot for you.

Connect with our local history and stay at a bed and breakfast that was once a sea captain’s home or a charming seaside inn that has been serving guests since the nineteenth century. Enjoy the modern amenities of a full-service resort, where you might learn to sail, pamper yourself with a day at the spa, play a round of 18 holes or mini golf, swim in a salt water pool, or simply enjoy a tranquil sunset. 

For foodies looking for a place to stay, there are hotels with fine waterfront dining on the premises or a number of inns where the innkeepers will prepare a scrumptious gourmet breakfast each day for their guests.

If you are vacationing with the whole family, cottages are available for rent on the ocean, on a lake, or in town. There are two campgrounds in the region with all the amenities that you need to pitch your tent or park your RV.

If you are looking for a truly unique experience, stay at the only all-inclusive resort in New England, a rustic log lodge, or at your own private lighthouse. Whether you are looking to be in the heart of downtown, steps away from the waterfront, shopping, dining, and night life or if you prefer the quiet tranquility of a relaxing retreat, the Boothbay Region has the perfect spot for you.


Whether you wish to pick a site along the rocky coast of Southport Island or on the tree lined banks of the Cross River, our two regional campgrounds provide the perfect camping experience.

With nearly 200 sites available in the region, it seems the only thing missing is you. No RV is too big and no tent is too small.  No matter your style, one thing is for sure: as you sit around the camp fire, gazing up at the stars, listening to peepers, crickets and owls, you will experience the true natural beauty of Maine. As you awake the next morning to the smell of the ocean and the scent of evergreens in the crisp Maine air, you will be instantly invigorated for the day ahead.  

Both campgrounds offer organized activities for all ages and there is plenty to do on your own as well: read, lounge, swim, kayak, fish, hunt for treasure along the shore or explore the forest, home to unique birds, deer and wild turkeys. 

Though you may feel like you’re a million miles away, both camp grounds are just minutes from all of the wonderful things to do in this region. Shuttle services, groceries, and bike rentals are just a few of the amenities that take the “roughing it” out of camping.

There is really only one thing for campers to worry about here; once you have discovered camping on this peninsula, you may never want to leave!
