The Experience

We own and operate a beautiful inn in Boothbay Harbor Maine. We are located in the center of a picturesque seaside Villiage with much to see and explore. Our inn closes for the season on October 20th and we are looking for help with closing the inn and with an event weekend in November. This is a great time to stay with us as the work is relatively light and the at a slower pace with plenty of free time.

Great place in a lovely town. Mark and Buzz are super fun and laid back. There is a lot to do and it can get pretty busy, but they're well-staffed and reasonable and the food is delicious. Highly recommend this! It's a good way to visit this part of Maine and get an authentic experience.

Experiência maravilhosa, ótimos anfitriões, tarefas tranquilas e dentro do combinado, lugar sensacional, excelente acomodação, ótima comida. Aprendi muitas coisas na cozinha (o que eu gosto muito), ajudei em eventos, aprendi coisas sobre arrumação de quartos e lavanderia. Foi simplesmente sensacional. Obrigada a Mark e Buzz por me darem essa oportunidade.
Great experience. Amazing place to work, really nice accommodations, fun tasks, I loved to help at the kitchen (learned a lot), hosters are amazing. I recommend a lot this place. Thanks Mark and Buzz for the opportunity! Loved my time there
