Boothbay Harbor Country Club made Architectural Digest’s list as one of the Most Beautiful Clubhouses in America. Our stunning clubhouse was chosen as the most beautiful clubhouse in the state of Maine. Architectural Digest is undeniably the preeminent authority on design. It is a distinct honor to be included in the Architectural Digest’s prestigious list of the most beautiful clubhouses in America - an accolade that we are very proud of!

Architectural Digest’s full list of the Most Beautiful Clubhouses in every state in America can be found here:

“It is a real honor to be recognized by Architectural Digest (the most prominent national magazine of architecture) as the Best Clubhouse in Maine,” said owner Paul Coulombe. “It took two years of design with Knickerbocker Group to achieve a sophisticated vintage New England country club. The shingle style exterior with the mahogany front doors welcome members and guests alike to a very relaxing and comfortable interior reception. The Grille 19, our casual dining area, is the first room and here you’ll find an incredible elevated view of the gorgeous golf course. The expansive, floor-to-ceiling, folding glass walls in Grille 19 open up fully and allows us to bring in the natural light and the beautiful outside to everyone. Paul’s Steakhouse also views the golf course but in a more sophisticated dining area with chandeliers and fireplace. Downstairs we have the ultimate pro golf shop with all the latest golfing apparel as well as golf equipment. Along with comfortable surroundings we provide the high level of service to our visitors as well to our members. It is all about the experience. Boothbay Harbor Country Club offers the best golf experience as well as the best country club building in the state of Maine and ranks now in the top 10 in New England.”

Laura Ratliff of Archictectural Digest said “I browsed hundreds of clubs across the country (mostly golf clubs but I also included private/tennis/other sports clubs, where relevant), choosing the most
beautiful based on feedback from members, environmental settings, and historical significance. Once I selected a shortlist for each state, I further evaluated each clubhouse based on its architecture and sense of place. The final list reflects a range of clubhouses from historic to modern, but all are unique, and most have distinct features that reflect the spirit of their respective states.
“Boothbay Harbor’s clubhouse was a perfect blend of luxury and the great outdoors that Maine is so well-known for. The integration of nature through the club’s large windows and outdoor seating areas, like the cozy firepit, sealed the deal for me!”
