Pharmacies & Hospital

Two pharmacies serve the Harbor:

  • Rite Aid (223 Townsend Ave Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538, Tel. (207) 633-7023
  • Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy (27 Townsend Ave Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538, Tel. (207) 633-6465)

For emergency care, dial 9-1-1. The nearest urgent care/emergency room is at St. Andrews Hospital, just 1 ¼ miles from the cottage (6 St. Andrews Lane, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538, Tel. (207) 633-2121) but it is only open 8am - 8pm.

Don’t forget to take a look at Boothbay’s weather forecast and average highs/lows and rainfall, as well as the tide, sunrise and sunset table before heading out!

Shipping Packages

Coastal Shipping right in the Harbor is the place to go:

36 McKown Street

(207) 633-5515 | Fax: (207) 633-5515

Hair Salons

My go-to spot has always been Heads of the Harbor, owned and operated by Dawne and her daughter Laura.  Schedule an appointment in advance if you can, but they do take walk-ins (and if you have to wait a bit, it's not so bad as Mama D's Cafe is just next door!)

25A Union St.
Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538
(207) 315-2025
