To most, vacations are a time to put the world on hold. A time to spend with loved ones. A time for relaxation and recreation. Oftentimes, however, this ‘free time’ is spent preparing meals, cleaning rooms, and planning activities. Wouldn’t you prefer an all-inclusive resort, where everything from the food to the cleaning services to the activities is supplied by the staff?  

Enter Linekin Bay Resort. Overlooking the awe-inspiring Atlantic Ocean, this Northeastern marvel is one of the few, if not the only, all-inclusive resorts on Maine’s magical coast. Not only are all the amenities provided, so is the adventure. In addition to providing delectable meals and comfortable rustic accommodations, you’ll also have access to the resort’s well-known sailing program and a host of other activities at no additional charge. 

With the Atlantic Ocean beckoning just outside your door, the aquatic activities are at a premium. Of course, the water-fueled fun begins and ends with the resort’s crown jewel, their sailboats. Twenty Rhodes 19 sailboats are waiting for a captain to steer them through the sea. Each vessel carries up to five passengers (four guests and one instructor), though experienced sailors are welcome to shove off without the aid of an instructor. Best of all, use of these sailboats and instruction from the expert staff comes with no additional fees.   

For more adventures on the Atlantic, a wave of complimentary activities is sure to keep you entertained. With almost every type of vessel available, you choose how to explore the salty sea. Paddle the shimmering shores on a canoe, get your heart pumping on a kayaking session, or try something new on a stand-up paddleboard. The ocean activities are almost endless.  

The activities continue onsite, where fun is always at your fingertips. Take a dip in the heated saltwater swimming pool, hike through the property’s 20 acres of lush landscape, or swing away on the tennis courts. A fun-filled kids camp is bursting with activities like arts and crafts, painting, splashing around in the tidal pools, and exploring the shoreline. Keep the fun rolling with volleyball, croquet, and bocce ball. 

In addition to having plenty to do, you’ll also have plenty to eat. Savor a true taste of Maine with traditional New England fare like fresh seafood and chowder. Of course, this isn’t the only option. Offering something for every palate, choose from vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and lighter dining options. Ingredients from local farms and fisheries give allow you to savor the fresh flavors of Boothbay. And, since the food is included, you’ll leave with a full stomach and a full wallet.  

These all-inclusive options appeal from everyone from families to couples. Perfect for family reunions, there are activities for all ages and parents don’t have to worry about preparing meals and cleaning rooms. With everything provided, couples can focus on each other. If you’re not sure where to start, the resort recently added a seven-day itinerary of recommended area adventures.   

An all-encompassing all-inclusive stay at Linekin Bay Resort means that you can swap preparation for exploration on a truly classic Maine getaway.
