Boothbay is BEAUTIFUL I’m sure it will be wonderful… You will be experiencing the beginings of lovely fall foliage too.  Most of the crowds disperse after labor day, so you should not have too much trouble!  It’s been about 5 years since I spent any time there, so I’m hesitant to make suggestions.  Perhaps a post on New Husband, Maine and Boston boards will get some bees buzzing about current Boothbay details. 

Good Luck!

Boothbay Harbor is a beautiful town.  However, there aren’t any lighthouses there.  The closest ones are Pemaquid Point and Monhegan Island, both accessible by boat from Boothbay or you could stay closer to Pemaquid which is accessible by land also..  Pemaquid is the prettier of the two. Since you are from Illinois, by the sounds of it, you haven’t been to Boothbay.  Not to discourage you but many of the lighthouses are privately owned and not open to the public.  For this region, Pemaquid would be the best choice.  Hotel Pemaquid http://www.hotelpemaquid.com/index.php is 60+/- minutes from Boothbay in New Harbor. It’s a very “homey”, comfortable setting.

If you are willing to consider somewhere else, Castine is another pretty coastal town.  The Manor Inn is a lovely setting. http://www.manor-inn.com/home.htm  There is a lighthouse in Castine as well, but is privately owned too. The Castine Inn is another nice spot.  http://www.castineinn.com/index.html

Hope some of this helped!  Good Luck!
