Visit Boothbay Harbor: One of Maine's Prettiest Villages


Downeast Magazine’s September issue is celebrating “Maine’s 10 Prettiest Villages” and it just so happens that 5 of the top 6 are not only within driving distance of Newagen Seaside Inn, but right in our own backyard.

Boothbay Harbor, at #2, was described this way: “A laid-back village far from busy Route 1, Boothbay Harbor features authentic charm, a working waterfront, drop dead natural beauty, and a great mix of restaurants, cultural events, and artisans. It’s surrounded by islands and lighthouses, while the village itself shines, thanks to brick sidewalks, handsome hand-painted signs and a gentle hilly terrain.” That’s quite an endorsement for our town which has been nicknamed the soul of the Maine Coast!

Camden was named the prettiest village at #1 and two of our favorite neighbors, Damariscotta at #3 and 15 minutes north and Wiscasset, at # 4, is only 15 minutes south. Planning a Maine vacation or getaway? Consider Newagen Seaside Inn, conveniently located a short distance to many of Downeast Magazine’s ‘Prettiest Villages in Maine’.
