Harbor Sunset Cottage is a new well-appointed 2 bedroom 1½ bath home with 2 decks facing direct waterfront & fabulous sunsets. You are only a minute's walk to the famous 'Footbridge' that crosses over the inner harbor in to town where you can buy a cup of fresh brewed coffee & the morning paper. If you prefer you can relax on the front porch swing with your own morning coffee to watch the sun rise up & over the harbor.
Boothbay Harbor is a real working waterfront, and you can watch it all without having to leave the comforts of this cozy cottage – lobster boats motoring out at dawn's early light & returning with the afternoon breeze, tour boats filled with travelers excited to see whales, seals and perhaps Puffins & pleasure crafts of all sizes (you never know who might be sailing in on that 100' yacht) – there's even islands – all right right in front of you.
Harbor Sunset Cottage shares the 'open' 1 acre waterfront property with the nationally known Lobster Dock Restaurant & Channel Marina (Food Network, Coastal Living Magazine & Port ‘O Call). This recently built rental offers granite kitchen counters, new appliances, dishes, glassware, washer/dryer, linens, cleaning supplies, etc. Don't want to cook while on vacation? Place an order at The Lobster Dock & have your food delivered to your private deck or get priority seating if you prefer to dine there. The cottage also has a slip at the marina for up to a 20' boat. You can launch it on-site or a few hundred yards away at the town launch. Have a canoe or kayak? Bring that along as well!
Harbor Sunset Cottage is the ideal rental if you want to be in the heart of the harbor where you have a front row seat to the best view of downtown and have a short walk to all the quaint shops, post office, library, boat tours & more!
Enjoy your front row view of the sun setting over the harbor & downtown as you reminisce about what you did today and make plans for what you will do tomorrow.
Please note: rates are as listed. Our cottage is a 2-level, 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath waterfront home located within walking distance to all of the harbor's main activities, sites, shops, restaurants & more.
