Lobsters, Town Picnics and $189 to $388 per SF Condos! It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than That.


Lobster Dock-Boothbay Harbor MaineWhat a great July 4th weekend! Our  visit to Boothbay Harbor, Maine included lobster dinners at the Lobster Dock restaurant which has wonderful views of the bay.

Mitch, the owner buys fresh lobsters daily from the local fisherman who dock their boats in the bay near this well known lobster shack. They are boiled in sea water and are accompanied by corn on the cob and a biscuit! Don’t forget to check out the crispy onion rings.

While in Booth Bay I couldnt resist checking out a few of the condos. On Trulia I found 12 listings in Boothbay Harbor. They ranged in price from a $279K 2br/1.5bth 1360sf  condo to a $475K 3br 3bth 2200sf unit with water views.

We drove by four of them  just  “steps away”  from  the Lobster Dock as we drove in for our pre fireworks dinner.

Interestingly, I tried to get comparable selling prices but that information doesn’t appear to be publically available. Like in the old days, I guess you have to check with one of the local brokers who are the price/information gate keepers. I didnt have time to visit the county clerks office because we were on our way to visit the town’s July 4th picnic bash.

July 4th town picnic in Boothbay Harbor MaineAt the picnic, my wife needed to have a taste of the cherry pie. Since it wasn’t available ala carte, I was “forced” to get the barbecued chicken which included the pie!  Hmm that was good.
