Ahhhhh! This is what it is all about!

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view from the deck of the Rock Cottage at Harborfields Waterfront Vacation Cottages in West Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view from the deck of the Rock Cottage, just one of the nine distinct vacation cottages, each with its own special water view.

Harborfields On The Shore is your family-friendly, pet-friendly, and boater-friendly three-season vacation destination (mid-May to mid-October), with a quarter-mile of shoreline and over 8 acres of woods and fields. Located on the west side of Boothbay Harbor, Harborfields overlooks the boats coming and going in the harbor and the beauty of the village, a mile across the water. The Harborfields dock is a hub of activity for boating, swimming, and fishing. We are secluded, yet only two miles by land from the town center, convenient to restaurants, shops, churches, theatres, yacht club and boat landings.

The cottages are old-fashioned and "rustic," but we do have the basics, like indoor plumbing, hot and cold running water, and electric lights! ;-) No televisions, radios, or telephones; no pools, hot tubs, or spas ... just quiet simplicity, peaceful views, waterfront activities, and friendly hospitality -- ideal for a Maine vacation! -- since 1948!

But don't take our word for it -- read what guests have written in unsolicited reviews and comments that we have found on the internet:

John Jorgensen, who spent summers at Harborfields in the 1950's, came back with his wife in August 2012 and had this to say: "What did we like the most? The Relaxed laid-back environment. It is a place where families with young and older children can find plenty to keep them entertained. Those without children can find peace and quiet and be as active or inactive as they wish. The Thorpe Family hallmark hospitality remains strong with Wendy and Tim."

Open mid-May through mid-October, we extend a warm invitation to spend your vacation time in Maine with us, and enjoy the many activities to be found both right at Harborfields and in the Boothbay region, while relaxing in friendly informality and discovering what our guests have been discovering for more than 65 years - the way life can be!
