It has been 100 years since the Branch family arrived on the shores of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and purchased property on Linekin Bay. Now they want to celebrate this milestone by sharing the memories of their thousands of loyal customers.
Visitors are invited to send their favorite Maine vacation memories, photos or videos to the resort's Facebook page. From these, a panel of judges will select their top three favorite memories submitted to the "Linekin Bay Resort Centennial Memory."
According to a news release, the public will get the opportunity to vote on their favorite of those three. The top vote-getter will receive an all-expenses paid weekend reunion for two at the Linekin Bay Resort.
Details of the contest are at
The property was a girls' camp in the early 1900s but was transformed into a planned-destination resort in 1946.
Peter Branch is the third generation to own the resort.
The resort offers:

  • Five waterfront lodges and 34 cabins.
  • A fleet of 19 sailboats to sail on your own or with an instructor.
  • Waterfront restaurant and bar.
  • Heated salt-water pool overlooking the bay.
  • Two tennis courts, kayaks, canoes and rowboats.
    "We are very excited about this historic upcoming season," said Ron Brann, general manager. "From the first day we open it's like going back to summer camp for me but with wonderful food, more adventurous activities and wireless Internet access. This location is a magical Maine vacation spot for families."
    As part of the 100th anniversary celebration, the resort will hold numerous events and activities, including photographic exhibits featuring the winning entries and value-priced centennial "meals and deals."
