The 2011 Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce (BBHRCC) Visitor & Resource Guides are now available. Richard and I, as innkeepers of Hodgdon Island Inn, are members of this fun and resourceful organization. This past Friday, feeling the need to get out and about after our glorious blizzard on Groundhog Day, we stopped by to pick up some up. This year’s theme is “Boothbay Harbor 2011: perfectly Maine!”I like that and I am in total agreement! Call me prejudiced, but the Boothbay Region (Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay, East Boothbay, West Boothbay and Southport Island) is “perfectly Maine!” We have rocky coastlines, quaint villages, lobster wharves, art galleries, sassy shops, Mom & Pop restaurants, looming lighthouses, boats and more boats and pink sunsets.
Of course, I have to say that Hodgdon Island Inn’s own spectacular Boothbay location plays its part and provides the picture-perfect Maine getaway: slightly-worn Adirondack chairs perfectly situated at the end of the lawn overlooking our deepwater frontage and providing front row seats for our pink-of-perfection sunsets; a quaint general store directly across the street known for their near-perfect lobster rolls; a heated-to-perfection in-ground pool; and nine uniquely appointed guestrooms, all with private baths and water views making them the perfect haven to come home to away from home. But then, I might be slightly prejudiced on that score too.
Come see for yourself!
