Boothbay Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bathroom, Wonderful accommodations for 6 or less

Fisherman's Perch is a 3 bedroom Maine Vintage Cottage situated on Spruce Point, just 1.6 miles from the Boothbay Harbor footbridge along the shore line. Enjoy the beautiful ocean view, sounds of the fog horn and waves crashing, and the clean saltwater air mixed with the smell of spruce. This knotty pine cottage with a field-stone fireplace, newly remodeled eat-in kitchen and both open and covered porch is located adjacent to the Spruce Point Inn. While we are private, our guests do have the option of enjoying the wonderful amenities of Spruce Point Inn, including spa, fitness center, pools, hot tubs, kayaking, fishing, playground, child care programs and more. Walk or borrow a bike from the Inn to ride to the harbor for shopping, eateries, boat rides, take advantage of the Spruce Point Inn facilities (including their great restaurants), explore the Maine coast’s lighthouses, botanical gardens, artisans, or just sit back and relax on the great porch and enjoy Spruce Point's ambiance!

Please note -

*We rent as many weeks as we can during the season, but it is a short one. Therefore, if you make a reservation and have to cancel for any reason and we are able to fill your dates, we will refund your money.

*We are also willing to accept families with pets, though we need you to tell us about your pet for pre-approval. There is a Pet Deposit.

If there are any deductions that need to be made, we will provide explanation and receipts when necessary within 10 business days. Unfortunately, this is a result of some items being taken from the cottage during the summer of 2008.

About Alyssa

I have spent the last 37 years vacationing in the Boothbay Harbor region. In 2008, after many years of going to BBH 2 or more times a year, my family purchased our cottage, which has all the charm and character we knew we needed in a BBH home.

I get so much pleasure out of hearing from renters - new and old - who love BBH. BBH completes me...being at the cottage and looking at the water, whether it is gorgeous and sparkling or gray and stormy, calms me.

Alyssa purchased this cottage in 2008

What makes this cottage unique

I love rocking on the porch; the sound of the foghorn as I fall asleep; getting the garden ready in the spring and arriving in the fall to see really tall flowers (that always surprises me); going to the Inn for their s'mores bonfires; walking down to road to catch a gorgeous sunset; looking up at the sky at night to see the most incredible stars; the smell of a fire in the fireplace; pulling into the driveway after too long away...

Hi Alyssa,

We are here now in your dear cottage. I really have to compliment your family on how you've done it up perfectly! You've managed to keep the warm and cozy feeling of the age of the cottage while at the same time outfitting it with modern conveniences which make it comfortable. I could name so many but wouldn't want to leave anything out: the great bedding, the cute lamps, the decor, the working shower--good pressure, the towels that really dry you, the nice TV (even though we probably won't use it, it's nice if there's some historic moment happening so we can watch it), the internet capability, just about every little thing to make it great. I love old things and I can just imagine how much fun you've had finding lots of treasures for your cottage. I love the furniture, the doors with the latches, the ironing board, the silgranite kitchen sink (I have one at home, love it), the rocking chairs on the deck, just amazing! We even found sugar packets in the cute little sugar can today!

Thank you so much for being so hospitable and considerate!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED our vacation on Spruce Point. The cottage is so charming and just what we had imagined for our Maine vacation. Boothbay Harbor had so many fun activities for our young children to enjoy, with lots of beautiful spots to explore. The best part of this rental, though, is its access to Spruce Point Inn. Our kids had a blast riding their bikes around, swimming in the multiple pools, kayaking, fishing, roasting s’mores at night, etc. – great family memories. Alyssa was so easy to work with as well. We will definitely rent this cottage again.

Magical Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fisherman's Perch is a wonderful cottage for a Maine vacation. Our granddaughters loved wandering through "the woods" & we just loved the porch for coffee in the morning & wine in the evening watching the lobstermen pulling traps. Having the use of the Spruce Point Inn amenities was a great bonus. We loved being able to use the kayaks, (kayboats as my 5 yr old granddaughter said,) & hanging out by the salt water pool all afternoon. This cottage was a very special & healing place to be. Alyssa has been so easy to deal with as well. We will be back next year for sure!

Our stay could not have been smoother. The cottage size, rooms, kitchen and especially the porch were ideal. The location worked out fabulously for us.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to send a HUGE thank you to you and your family for sharing your cottage with us. We had an amazing week! The cottage was super comfy and had everything we needed. Our 4 girls had so much fun

kayaking, biking, swimming and exploring all week. Today was really bittersweet as we were so sad to leave but also so happy to have discovered such an amazing place. We really appreciated all of the tips you gave us-- particularly the food/restaurant tips. There is no shortage of great food up there! Can't thank you guys enough for such

a fantastic vacation that we will remember forever!!

All the best,

Andrea E.

Perfect cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family. We were attending a wedding at Spruce Point Inn and our cottage was next to the reception hall. It was nice to have the cottage so we could cook meals and not have to pay restaurant prices for each meal. It was clean and neat - it was a chilly weekend so the cottage was a little cold because there is no heat only a fireplace and space heaters, which we couldn't use often because we kept leaving and it was unsafe to have them on when we were not present. We managed and had fun. I would rent again if we were to go to that part of Maine again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate you taking the time to write and are so glad the cottage worked for you!! So sorry you were a little chilly, but also glad to know you managed and that you would rent again should you return to the Boothbay Harbor region! (We hope you had a wonderful time at the wedding!!)

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. We would have loved to stay another week! The cabin is rustic, but has definite benefits for a family traveling to the area. We were able to shop at the local grocery store and cook meals at home, which we ate on the deck overlooking the ocean...Lovely!

The grounds are beautiful and private. One huge advantage to this rental is having access to the Spruce Point Inn's amenities. We all enjoyed the pool, and the boat shuttle which takes you over to the town of Booth Bay. (Say Hi to Shawn, the boat captain! He is a wealth of information on things to do in the area.) The children enjoyed playing badminton and fishing off of the dock. M/W/F the resort has an evening campfire. We met some lovely people there. There are also laundary facilites, tennis courts and bicycles to use. The Inn has two restaraunts and a bar as well. There is internet access available in the library.

The cabin comes equiped with books, games and puzzles. We enjoyed spending time as a family, I think we only turned the TV on once. There is only one bathroom which required a little juggling (our family is 5 total). This was a fabulous vacation. I would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Dan and family, for your review! We are thrilled you had such a great time and enjoyed our classic Maine cottage! For many, many years families and friends have made memories there and we are glad to be able to share it so others will continue to have the chance to do so!! We too love the Spruce Point Inn amenities, and combined with the privacy of the cottage, it is a perfect match! We are glad you found the Inn's computer/internet to stay connected (great for those who don't have a laptop with them)! (NOTE for others reading this review - we do have secured wireless internet in the cottage for those renters who bring a laptop.) We hope if you have the desire to return to Maine that you will be in touch! Thank you again for your review!!
