Practical Resources

Pharmacies & Hospital

One pharmacy serves the Harbor:

  • Rite Aid (223 Townsend Ave Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538, Tel. (207) 633-7023

For emergency care, dial 9-1-1. The nearest urgent care is at St. Andrews, just 1¼ miles from the cottage (6 St. Andrews Lane, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538) but it is only open 8 am – 8 pm. Call ahead to be sure: 207-633-1940. The nearest 24-hour emergency room is in Damariscotta, known as “Miles”, 35 Miles Street, Damariscotta, ME 04543, 207-563-4521

Don’t forget to take a look at Boothbay’s weather forecast, as well as a tide table before heading out!

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!)
