The historic Newagen Seaside Inn has quickly become one of the premier Midcoast Maine wedding venues thanks to our scenic shoreline, incredible amenities, and world-class service. But we’re also one of the best choices in the Boothbay Harbor area for family reunions of any size. We provide sizable gathering spaces, delicious New England fare, an array of on-site activities, and elegant ocean-view cottages. Arguably the best season to plan a Maine family reunion in Boothbay Harbor is the springtime because the rates are low, the inn is uncrowded, and the weather is refreshing. Here are five reasons to choose Newagen Seaside Inn for your next family gathering.
Customizable Event Space
Whether you’re planning a small get-together or a massive, long-overdue reunion, Newagen Seaside Inn has a seemingly endless amount of event space across the property. Our waterfront “Event Lawn,” which is often used for wedding ceremonies, is the perfect spot for an afternoon picnic, tented dinner, or a cocktail hour for the adults. Our Pine Room, meanwhile, is a popular hangout for kids and adults alike. This vintage game room has table shuffleboard, foosball, darts, billiards, ping pong, candlepin bowling, and a piano.
On-Site Outdoor Activities
When you’re not gathering for a meal or visiting a nearby attraction, feel free to take advantage of our many complimentary on-site activities. We have a heated outdoor pool, tennis courts, walking paths, shuffleboard, rowboats, and classic cruiser bicycles. Take a nap in a hammock, or stroll down our Sunset Path to witness a picturesque Maine sunset in an Adirondack chair. Finish each evening by gathering for s’mores around our firepit and stargaze into the evening alongside the shores of Cape Harbor.
Newagen Seaside Inn may be far from all of the crowds, but we’re just minutes from nearby Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and all of the area’s best attractions. Here’s a short list of our favorite local attractions, particularly for a Maine family reunion.

Dinner at The Pub
The Pub, our on-site restaurant and bar, has panoramic Atlantic Ocean views, a skilled culinary team, traditional Maine ingredients, and locally-sourced gourmet cuisine. The Pub has indoor and outdoor seating, so we’ll have no problem seating your entire family. Take advantage of our happy hour drink specials on local microbrews, wine, and house cocktails before indulging in traditional New England fare. Our menu includes crab cakes, local oysters, scallops, haddock, and so much more! Thanks to our exceptional culinary staff, The Pub has quickly become one of the most popular Boothbay Harbor area restaurants.
