Between reserving your stay at Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort and arriving for your vacation, there are plenty of things to do. One is creating an adventure-filled itinerary for your Maine family vacation. The other is creating a well-thought-out packing list. Taking the time to write out all the things you need to bring with you will prevent any emergency trips to the store. Between essentials and things necessary for your activities, there’s a lot to remember. 


One of the best ways to ensure you can fit all you need to bring with you is by planning a road trip to our coastal Maine resort. To help give you a starting point, we’ve compiled a list of the top things our guests need to bring with them.

  • It’s crucial you check the weather as you pack, as you want to make sure your clothes fit the projected forecast. Each season in Boothbay Harbor has its own personality. For anyone visiting with us in the spring, we recommend water-resistant jackets, while summer calls for swimsuits and lighter-weight clothing.

  • If you plan on spending any time out hiking, you’ll want a backpack stocked with the essentials. This includes but is not limited to bug spray, snacks, sunscreen, water, and something for navigation, like a printed trail map.

  • Another important thing to have with you is a well-stocked first-aid kit. It should have things like band-aids, antibiotic ointment, pain relievers, gloves, gauze, a thermometer, tweezers, and other necessary medication.

  • The last thing you want while out and exploring is to realize your phone has died. A portable charger is the perfect way to ensure that doesn’t happen. This little device doesn’t take up much room but can make a world of difference in your excursions.  

  • While there’s no shortage of things to do and see around the Boothbay Harbor region, sometimes you want to enjoy a quiet night in. That doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Bring along your family’s favorite games, or leave room in your suitcase for a couple of page-turners.

Of course, the above list will grow as you start planning your adventures. For example, if you plan on kayaking with Tidal Transit or Midcoast Kayak, you’ll want to bring things like waterproof shoes.


Between checking items off your packing list and creating a list of must-do activities, there’s plenty to keep you busy before you arrive at Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort for your Maine family vacation. However, all this work is worth it so that you can have the vacation of a lifetime.
