Richard and I are looking forward to our fourth season as innkeepers here at Hodgdon Island Inn!  We join the Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce in inviting you to come to not only our own little island getaway, but our lovely region as well where you can “relax, rejuvenate and reconnect in our friendly coastal community”.

RileyHodgdon Island Inn, located on the quiet side of Boothbay Harbor, is surrounded by deep water, nature preserves, hiking trails, Maine’s one and only botanical gardens, and one of the best places to launch a kayak in the area!  Our nine rooms have water views, fans and air-conditioners, our beds are comfy, our breakfasts sumptuous, our evening desserts decadent, our in-ground pool heated, our parking lot secure and your hosts love to pamper and spoil their guests!  Front row seats are available for rest and relaxation and the Trevett General Store, just across the road, is the place to get beer, wine and sodas along with the area’s best Lobster rolls, Whoopie Pies, chowders and even fish & chips.

If you are thinking about getting away for a few days to Maine this spring, here are some upcoming events in the Boothbay Harbor Region that you may want to add to your list:Waffles & Maine Maple Syrup Photo by Richard B. Riley

They welcome you to join them as they celebrate the history and significance of Maine produced and harvested maple syrup.
