Boothbay Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 full bathrooms. Sleeps 6

Here are 10 reasons to choose Sunny Woods House for your Maine vacation;

1. Swim in warm lake water and paddle in our kayaks from a private dock. From the middle of the lake you see the masts of sailboats on the ocean. It is that close. Winter offers XC skiing, snowshoeing, skating, ice fishing, tobogganing and tranquil hikes on the nearby Boothbay Region Land trust trails. www.bbrlt.org

2. The location is ideal for seeing the sights and enjoying locals’ favorite hangouts in Boothbay Harbor, or heading to nearby towns and sights.

3. Use our discount tickets to visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, 248 acres including ornamental gardens, the Children’s Garden, the Garden of the Senses, art and ecological exhibits, concerts, café and gift shop. www.mainegardens.org Only 5 minutes from the house.

4. Sunny Woods House welcomes pets.

5. Accept a 5% discount if you are an educator or in the military, with our appreciation.

6. There is no better space from which to do some work if you must- a dedicated equipped office. Free Wi-Fi and an unlimited long distance land line.

7. Watch movies on the huge 62 flat screen TV with surround sound. Cook up lobster or make some soup on a winter evening.

8. Explore the area on the 4 bicycles included with the rental.

9. All the comforts of home...like a dishwasher. And fully stocked with towels, linens, and all household supplies.

10. A stay at Sunny Woods House represents a true hassle-free vacation. And a true getaway in the less busy seasons.

We’d enjoy helping you plan your vacation-where else can you have privacy, enjoy gardens and art and yet be within 10 minutes of all of the Boothbay Harbor attractions and an hour of three midcoast Maine towns?

About Susan Morris

Chip Newell and Susan Morris moved to Maine 12 years ago after decades of living all over the US and Canada. Chip first experienced Maine as a student at Bowdoin College and Susan traveled through Maine on her way to the family cottage in Prince Edward Island. She grew up in Montreal.

Susan has been in the hospitality and lodging business for over 25 years, including 13 years with Marriott Hotels. She is a bit of a cleanliness nut. Chip has always been in the real estate business, developing hotels, resorts, residences and condos in places as diverse as Washington, DC, Denver, western North Carolina, South Beach Miami, Puerto Rico and Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Chip and Susan live 5 minutes away from Sunny Woods House. Far enough away to ensure your privacy and close enough to be helpful if a need arises.

They embrace all four seasons on the coast of Maine. Hiking in fall foliage, skiing and skating in the winter, welcoming the spring and swimming and paddling in the summer. There are always towns to explore and farmers markets to shop for glorious local foods.

Susan Morris purchased this house in 2003

Why Susan Morris chose Boothbay Harbor

When we saw the unique benefit of being able to enjoy both the ocean and a lake grabbed our interest. Private yet so close to the heart of the Harbor.

What makes this house unique

Close to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Boothbay Region Land Trust trails. Yet only one mile into town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Silence is Golden, almost like On Golden Pond

  • 5 of 5

Lakeside Cottage was so peaceful and comfortable for the two of us and our two Beagles. The cottage had everything needed for a pleasent stay. Susan phoned us the first night to see if she could do anything for us, or if we needed anything. They even supplied extra towels and blankets for the dogs, not sure if they supplied the red squirrels, but the dogs had a blast looking for them.

A beautiful place to vacation and take the dogs

  • 5 of 5

If your "kids" have four legs and fur and you don't want to leave them at home when you go on vacation, then Boothbay Cottages should be high on your list. They don't just tolerate pets, they welcome them, even multiples, and yet, you'd never know that other dogs had been there before. The cottage is super clean, nicely appointed, and very comfortable. With home style amenities at the cottage (including a good kitchen, big TV, nice furniture, relaxing deck, books, DVDs, etc) and the beautiful town of Boothbay Harbor, the ocean, a pond, and hiking trails nearby, your vacation can be as expansive or as self contained as you want, as busy or as relaxed. The owner thoughtfully leaves information in the cottage about local activities, interesting shops,restaurants and more. So, take the dogs. They'll have a good time snoozing in the sun on the deck, taking long walks, and dreaming about all the chipmunks and squirrels they've seen. You'll have a good time, too, and a wonderful vacation. We like it so much that we've vacationed at the Oceanview cottage for four years in a row!

Lakeside Cottage

  • 4 of 5

All in all, this was a very nice place to stay. It offered a quiet, low key place to be with close proximity to the ocean, great walks and a quick drive to town. It suited our needs as it had a gas grill, laundry, dog friendly and easy access to the pond and ocean. It also had creature comforts such as tv/dvd, WiFi and outdoor dining.

As for dining out, our favorites are the lobster rolls at Red's Eats in Wiscasset, The Tugboat in BBH, the homemade ice cream shop next to McSeagull's in BBH and Ports of Italy in BBH.

We would definitely recommend this place.

"Bookthbay "Cottage"

  • 1 of 5

We rented this two room "cottage" the last week in Sept. 2011. If you are looking for a rental that gives you the feel of a Maine coastal village, this is not the place. The second story walk-up over a garage is in a wooded area with a narrow view to a small lake across the road, and is several miles from the town of Boothbay Harbor. The property has rotting window frames, neglected appliances and needs a deep cleaning. It does have access to a washer & dryer in the garage below behind a door which is almost impossible to raise. We did find free passes for the arboretum which is wonderful and the town of Boothbay Harbor is charming. In short don't stay here. Compared to the immaculate , furnished roomy cottage which we rented for $200 less the prior week it is an overpriced d----.

Fun for family with dogs

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Ocean View cottage. It's cute and nice enough to feel comfortable, but not SO nice that I had to worry about my kids all the time. The wifi is nice convenience, and the kids liked the big TV.

Beware that the pictures do not tell the whole story. The pictures don't convey the smell and feel of the ocean breeze that you feel while sitting on the deck, or even while you're inside with the windows open. It's mesmerizing.

We enjoyed kayaking with the kids on the pond, and hiking some of the Boothbay Region Land Trust trails, which are easy enough for small kids.

Our dogs had a great time swimming, and romping in the woods. I am happy that the owner is welcoming to responsible pet owners.

Overall, we had a great time, and the cottage had everything we needed. We hope to go back next year (so if you're reading this, please don't book the week we want!).

Great Location and Views

  • 5 of 5

Great location!!!! This pet friendly cottage was clean and very comfortable. Our stay of one week was too short. We and our dogs enjoyed the lake just across the street, as well as the beautiful views of Linekin Bay. Five days during our visit we watched a seal perched on a small rock island. There are beautiful hiking trails starting off from the cottage, as well as many a short drive away. The cottage owners provided details and maps of each trail as well as other area attractions. The trails afford many views as well as different terrains, etc. woods, meadows, and ocean front. Fresh lobster was the perfect dinner after enjoying all Boothbay Harbor has to offer. We and our dogs give this cottage five stars!! Not only pet friendly, but welcoming.
