Smuggler's Cove

Activities at Smuggler’s Cove Inn 

There are plenty of things to do on property at Smuggler’s Cove Inn near Boothbay Harbor. Swim in the ocean or in our heated oceanfront pool, enjoy access to our canoes and kayaks or try your hand at paddle boarding… drop a line and go fishing off our private dock or in our row boat, “Rumrunner”. Or do nothing at all…settle into an Adirondack chair with a good book, or sit back and relax on your private deck and enjoy the tranquility at Smuggler’s Cove Inn on the Maine coast. In the evening, warm up by the fire pit; sip a cocktail and recount your Maine adventures with family and friends. You may never want to leave. 


Swim oceanside!

Take a dip in our heated oceanfront saltwater pool or relax poolside in one of our lounge chairs. Feeling adventurous? Take a plunge off the dock into the ocean, and revive the senses!


Canoes & Kayaks 

Grab a paddle!  

Located on Linekin Bay, our resort has a dock, sandy beach and plenty of waterfront to get out and explore. Grab a canoe or kayak and head out on the bay to explore the coastline. You’ll find paddles and life vests located in our Sea Shack.



Paddle Boards 

What’s SUP?

Stand Up Paddle Boards, located at the sandy beach is a fun way to get out on the water! Come try your hand at paddle boarding on the bay; it’s a challenge, but oh so fun! You’ll find paddles and life vests located in our Sea Shack. 




Row Boat 

Row, row, row, your boat… 

Rumrummer: a person or ship engaged in bringing prohibited liquor ashore or across a border – we thought it only fitting to name our row boat “Rumrunner” at Smuggler’s Cove Inn. Our row boat is tied up at the dock, and perfect for a bay paddle, lounging at the beach front, or casting a line!


Nature Trails


Explore Smuggler’s Cove Inn and our slice of Maine. We are just minutes from some of the best nature trails and vista points in the Boothbay Harbor region. Be sure to check out the Ocean Point Preserve on the Boothbay Region Land Trust, Linekin and Burley Preserves in East Boothbay, and so many more! Visit our Front Desk for a list of local nature trails. 


Fireside Gathering 

A vacation without a fire pit is just not Maine. 

Summer’s most magical moments happen around a fire! Gather fireside with family, friends and other guests to recount your Maine adventures from the day.  Grab a cocktail from our on-site restaurant and bar, 727 Ocean, and unplug; let the constraints of the everyday melt away. Don’t forget to look up; stargazing is a must when you visit Maine!
