Incredible!

  • 5 of 5
We had a terrific time with our two young children at Little Dipper! The house and views are breathtaking. Some of our favorite things included hiking, kayaking, watching sunsets, sea glass hunting, swimming in the lake (nearby), day trip to Monhegan island, Reid State Park, farmer's market, and terrific picnic lunches from Southport and East Boothbay General Stores. We had dinner in several times because it was hard to be away from the view! Our kids loved the lobster boat tour with Captain Clive Perrin and we had a delicious dinner out at the Lobster Dock. We also ate a ton of ice cream at Sarah's Scoops and Downeast Ice Cream Factory. My husband enjoyed the beer from the Boothbay Brewing Company. Kids also liked the railway village. We look forward to being able to return to LDC one day!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5
Little Dipper Cottage is a magical place -- filled with beauty and light, and featuring the most extraordinary ocean views you can imagine. My husband, daughter, and I have been vacationing in the Boothbay Harbor area for more than 20 years, and all of us agree that this lovely house, with its addictive screened porch, is our new favorite.

Perfect Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful cottage in a prime location in Sawyers Island. The owners have done a wonderful job at renovating and maintaining this cottage in impeccable condition. It is tastefully decorated with plenty of room and a very comfortable porch overlooking the water. We are very grateful we found this gem and look forward to returning with our family.

A slice of heaven...

  • 5 of 5
The Little Dipper cottage exceeded our expectations...spectacular views, perfectly located, beautifully appointed...our family of 5 (with children ranging ages 5-15) plus some additional friends (we had up to 8 stay with plenty of room and comfort) made memories to last a lifetime..exploring Boothbay Harbor, sailing, beach combing...but we especially enjoyed sitting on the screened porch relaxing and taking in the picture perfect scenery...we are looking forward to our return for many more summers to come!

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5
I'm always nervous that rental properties won't live up to the pictures on the internet, but this one certainly did. It is a beautiful home, quiet location, great view, and very clean. The whole house is full of light, and the colors used made for a very restful atmosphere. There are great views from nearly every window. Even the dishes were pretty! You can tell the owners paid attention to every detail during the renovation. The screened porch was heavenly, as was the sunroom and upstairs living area. It is a quick and scenic drive into the town of Boothbay Harbor, where there is plenty to do. However, the home is so beautiful it was tempting to just stay there the whole time. The lawn in back is a great play area for kids. Besides some activities in Boothbay, we made day trips to Pemaquid Point and Reid State Park, which were wonderful. The owners were very responsive and helpful during the whole rental process. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5
When I arrived at the Little Dipper Cottage, I was amazed at the pure beauty of the craftsmanship. The photos of the cottage do not do it justice, it's truly the most amazing place. I actually got married in the front yard of this cottage. It was everything I had ever dreamed my wedding could be. I felt like the decor was straight out of a Martha Stewart guide book.
