Welcome to Linekin Bay Resort, where relaxation is always a priority, the food is delicious, and the staff is incredibly hospitable. Extensive renovations (the first in a multi-year plan) await both first-time guests and devoted returners.
Upon arrival you’ll immediately notice the new Welcome Center, conveniently located in the center of the compound. The friendly staff will be more than happy to welcome you to Linekin, checking you in and out upon your departure. Don’t forget to take home some souvenirs from the new gift shop!
With five rustic Maine lodges along the waterfront and 22 cabins dispersed on the hillside of the 20-acre resort, there are options aplenty for any size group. Relaxation is paramount; each room offers a beautiful wooded or waterfront backdrop so you feel completely immersed in the pristine Maine environment. The Linwood Lodge, in particular, has been completely rebuilt, adding a beautiful waterside patio area and a stone fire pit surrounded by new Adirondack chairs. Enjoy some s’mores while you relax!
Of course, a trip to Maine comes with certain expectations. Chief among those is incredible seafood, and Linekin Bay does not disappoint. The locally inspired menu features everything from traditional New England fare to vegetarian and vegan meals.
One of Linekin Bay’s claims to fame is that they are the last all-inclusive sailing resort on the east coast. Sailing is simply part of the culture here. There’s just something evocative about coasting around a beautiful bay with a brisk wind at your back. The sailing experts at Linekin will be happy to show you the ropes about sailing, so you can experience that feeling for yourself. If it’s not your cup of tea, however, you’re more than welcome to explore the bay on kayaks, stand-up paddleboards or canoes.
What does Linekin have to offer those who aren’t so nautically inclined? Take a dip in the waterfront pool, challenge your family to a classic board game, take a spin around Boothbay Harbor on one of the resort’s classic cruiser bicycles, or play a few sets on the resort’s tennis court. If you don’t mind a short drive, the Boothbay region is absolutely packed with a plethora of activities for all ages. Walking and hiking trails, a world-class botanical garden, an aquarium, and dozens of local shops and restaurants are but a sampling of the wonders that await you. Guests also have complimentary access to the excellent local YMCA.
Renovations will be completed sooner than you’d think. “The entire resort will be open for business when the 2016 season is launched, May 19th!” said Director of Sales & Marketing Cherie Scott. But don’t take my word for it--go see for yourself!
