What makes this house unique

Very few rental cottages give you this unique experience of being literally over the water! The views are beautiful beyond words. Yet all the while you are close to busy Boothbay Harbor and within walking distance of Ocean Point beaches.

One of my favorite spots

  • 5 of 5

This August I am making my third visit in three years to the dockhouse. The beauty of the location is beyond my ability to describe. I feel totally relaxed and at peace when I'm there. The house is "lived in" charming and comfy and offers everything one might need. I could sit on the porch all day and watch the tides go in and out, the osprey in flight, the lobstermen checking their traps and the commorants drying their wings on the rocks directly opposite. My dog Quincy is welcome here off leash and he and I enjoy making the short trek to the rocky ocean beach several times each day. The hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor is about 25 minutes away. Ocean Point drive can be reached by car in under 10 minutes. This vacation spot beckons me back like no other.

We cannot say enough about what a fantastic cottage this is! We had such a relaxing and wonderful time and we had the most gracious host ever. Breathtaking scenery, everything for our family style meals at our fingertips, comfortable beds,and some of the most beautiful and memorable sites and sounds of Maine.

We will definitely be visting the Dockhouse again! Thank you so much for an unforgettable stay.

Ocean Harbor is in a glorious, quiet area of Ocean Point in the Boothbay Region, featuring the fishing and boat building village of East Boothbay, rugged rocks and ocean, and quiet bays and harbors. Ocean Point is a famous summer colony, known for its scenic drive at water's edge with a view to islands. Our family compound is situated at the mouth of Little River, with privacy and room to roam. Boothbay Harbor is filled with restaurants,art galleries and shops, boat rides and a magnificent botanical garden just reaching its peak. Most places here are oriented to the water, none more so than our little dock house which perches directly over the water.

Other Activities: YMCA , Botanical Gardens, sightseeing boats,fishing, sailing,day camp
