For many families, Linekin Bay Resort is a time-honored tradition that transcends the generations. Jan Landis remembers the first visit to Linekin Bay Resort in vivid detail. It was a dark and stormy night in August of 1970. She and her husband, John, then both 29, had just bought their first house. A fire was roaring in the hearth of the dining room and the sweet aroma of lobster bisque filled the air. “It was like nothing else we’d ever experienced before,” Landis says.

The other day, as I drove up the winding roads to the beloved, but a bit elderly, Linekin Bay Resort, my path was blocked by a pair of giant excavators grading a new road.

Shortly after the huge machines pounded the new gravel surface into submission, compactors started compacting the soil. Not far away, carpenters were hammering, roofers were roofing, plumbers, were, well you get the idea.

A Seaside Place to Slow Time’s Passing: Family Reconnects at Linekin Bay in Boothbay Harbor, Maine

August 5, 2012 | Boston Sunday Globe | Read Full Article Online

The day after my children’s last day of school, we packed the car and drove three hours to the outskirts of Boothbay Harbor, home for the next three nights at the Linekin Bay Resort. The general manager checked us in and then deposited us at our rustic lodge perched on a bluff overlooking the lobster buoy-laden waters. There was no television, no phone, no desk. In fact, it took me five minutes to find a three-pronged outlet to charge my phone. After going, going, going for so long, we were like four gerbils bounced off our treadmills.

“What are we going to do here?” my wife said.

Learn to enjoy each other’s company again, without the distraction of Facebook, ESPN, video games, or work. We would spend quality time together before we dispersed again.

The lodge floors have a patina from years of bare footsteps and the grounds are rich with activity. I can tell that memories are made here.
