We had a wonderful stay at this charming place right in the midst of downtown Boothbay Harbor. We could walk anywhere and enjoyed going out in the evening for a stroll around town and an ice cream. The apartment is beautifully and creatively decorated and we sort of felt like we were in a real live Potterybarn catalog ! It was also very clean and comfortable. Our kids loved the kids room with 2 great sets of bunk beds. We loved our dinner at the Ports of Italy restaurant which was a 3 minute walk from the apartment. There are many other nice restaurants that you can walk to. We went on the Eastwind schooner and loved it. We also took the boat to Monhegan Island and went on a puffin cruise. The Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens are also a "must see".

We loved our 4 days at Buddy's Barrel House. It is a spacious, beautifully renovated apartment. The decor is fun and comfortable. The apartment is well equipped with a great kitchen, nice bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. There is a wonderful deck as well. Would definitely come again.

Elizabeth M. Location, location, location. We (2 families, each with 2 kids 10 and under) spent 4 days in Boothbay and the house made the trip a dream. We could walk to everything - dinner, coffee, ice cream, kayak rentals - and also relax in a beautiful and comfortable house. The owners did a phenomenal job decorating the house. They also thought of EVERYTHING to make our visit so easy. Well stocked basic necessities - coffee, tea, laundry detergent, etc We wiiyld definitely stay here again!

The Barrel House is a beautiful property and conveniently located. Nicely appointed and comfortable for our family of 4 plus our little dog. The Kitchen had everything you needed to get started and then some. Would recommend to anyone needing a quiet get away this time of year.
