Free Wi-Fi and breakfast, historic character, refined regional dining and a stellar setting in the heart of picturesque Boothbay Harbor distinguish the Thistle Inn. Built in 1861 by a prominent sea captain, the three-story Thistle Inn's six individually decorated rooms are named after local schooners. Contrast free Wi-Fi and flat-panel TVs with homey decor including such antiques as ornately carved four-poster beds. Many rooms boast harbor views through bay or arched windows. The handsome beamed restaurant sources product from local farmers and fishermen; the staff can suggest optimal pairings from the comprehensive wine list. The Dory Pub bar is fashioned from an 18-foot boat; its legendary ghost can't scare guests and locals away from half-price happy hours. Breakfast is included in the rate. Parking is free. Note: Guests planning to arrive before or after the designated check-in time must contact the property prior to arrival for special instructions. Guests can contact the property using the number on the reservations confirmation received after booking. The Thistle Inn sits on Maine Route 27, with such Boothbay Harbor attractions as the Opera House and Historical Society within a quarter-mile walk. Get transported back in time on a 1938 narrow-gauge steam locomotive at the Boothbay Railway Village, four miles away. Cabbage, Southport or Burnt Islands offer biking, boating and beach-combing within four miles. Touch denizens of the deep at the Maine State Aquarium under three miles away, or take cruises highlighting everything from lobstering to lighthouses departing just a few blocks from the inn. The Augusta State Airport is 38 miles north, the Portland International Jetport 61 miles southwest. There's nothing thorny about the Thistle Inn, whose maritime history coupled with modern amenities, not to mention a serene setting steps from the bay, offers safe harbor to bed-and-breakfast aficionados.
