Unique ocean front home located on Mill Cove, a picturesque and active setting with panoramic southerly ocean views with sunrises and sunsets. A 5 minute walk gets you to the heart of Boothbay Harbor for shopping, dining, boat rides, and entertainment. No need to worry about parking.

This cove is tidal and has 6-8 feet of water at high tide and is a natural habitat for waterfowl, Striped Bass and Mackerel.

The back yard features beautiful gardens and a sitting/dining area right at the water's edge under a large pergola covered with wisteria and grapevine. Relax in one of our many Adirondack chairs on the waters edge. Enjoy the fire pit while roasting S'mores and watching the sunset on the cove. If you're feeling adventurous, we provide you with ocean kayaks, or you can swim and fish off your own private dock and float without ever leaving the property.

Relax on the large deck equipped with gas grill and large dining area overlooking the magnificent gardens and the harbor.

The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen features a large island with dine-up seating. The sun room/dining area is just off the kitchen and features cozy pillow wrap around seating. The spacious but cozy Tuscan-style living room has bistro-style dining for four, beautiful wood-burning fireplace, 46' LED Smart TV with CD/DVD and surround-sound with French doors leading out onto the entertainment deck.

Master bedroom has a queen bed, separate dressing room as well as a lounging area with TV/DVD and French doors leading onto a private deck overlooking the water with hot tub and bistro table and chairs. Bedroom 2 is water-view with a queen bed. BR 3 has 1 full and 2 twin beds with a private adjacent sleeping area with twin bed. There is a day bed in the living room. This traditional Maine home has been in the family for eighty years and has everything to enhance your Maine vacation. If you want to be steps from town but feel like you're miles away, Mill Cove is your perfect vacation destination. “This is it!!!!!!”

We had a great stay. Arlen greeted us and showed us around this very interesting home with lots of unique touches. We loved Boothbay Harbor as a place to do a LOT of things. We rode bikes to the Botanical Gardens (only 3 miles away), which is a must see if you visit the state of Maine. It was voted as the best public gardens in the US, and we would agree. We did a 2 hour boat trip to see light houses and seals. We did hikes - especially liked the one in Linekin Preserve beyond East Boothbay (stop at the General Store for lunch). And we ate - a lot. Ports of Italy, Thistle Inn and Boathouse Bistro were favorites for dinner. Best "lobtah" roll was at the Trevett General Store beyond the Botanical Gardens.

A dream come true.

  • 5 of 5
My sister has rented this house every year since it became available. This year it was my husband and I who benefited from her generosity. It was bliss, so peaceful, comfortable and a view that you almost thought you had died and gone to heaven. So many good eating places in walking distance. And a kayak on the jetty that enabled us to explore the coves. I never want to leave Boothbay Harbour.

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5
We came last year for two weeks and fell in love with the house, the area and the owners. It is just perfect..a fabulous kitchen to cook in, plenty of great reading nooks, a spectacular view and the best thing of all.....you can join the Boothbay Country Club for two weeks. I am not a golfer but my husband is and he absolutely loved the course. He would get up every morning....get 18 holes in and then be home in time to enjoy one of many Bootbhay Harbor's fabulous restaurants for lunch. Personally I don't understand the "disappointed" review.....Alden and Karen are the best hosts every and they are NEVER in your way. Just go....you will love it.

First Class!

  • 5 of 5
Our second vacation in Boothbay Harbor and the whole family loved this place.

Alden and Karen have a wonderful home, the best equipped kitchen you're ever likely to find in a rental property, state of the art smart TV which offers access to Netflix, Amazon Prime etc. (have to have your own account) as well Time Warner cable, kayaks to explore Mill Cove (and beyond if you're feeling adventurous) and a dream garden that's obviously Alden's and Karen's pride and joy. A new addition to the property is the ground floor shower room, which is a work of art in its own right (well done Alden!).

It's a short walk into BBH, with a good choice of restaurants, but with the excellent kitchen and Weber gas BBQ, you'll probably want to eat at home with a wonderful view of Mill Cove.

Really don't understand the "Disappointed" review below, Alden and Karen are perfect hosts, they don't "live downstairs", just have a base there for when they're putting their hard work into nurturing their garden and are not at all intrusive.

This is a dream place for a vacation, would recommend to anyone.

Our second vacation in Boothbay Harbor and the whole family loved Jordan's.

Alden and Karen have a wonderful home, the best equipped kitchen you're ever likely to find in a rental property, state of the art smart TV and premium cable, kayaks to explore Mill Cove (and beyond if you're feeling adventurous) and a dream garden that's obviously Alden's and Karen's pride and joy. A new addition to Jordan's is the ground floor shower room, which is a work of art in its own right (well done Alden!).

Wonderful week amid beautiful gardens on the water!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at this home within easy walking distance of downtown Boothbay Harbor. The house sits directly on a cove with beautiful water views. There is a dock with two kayaks (a double and a single) that make it very easy to kayak (at high tide!) around the area, including the downtown area. The home is beautiful - clean, bright, and filled with warm touches of home. There is a giant, high tech TV and the home Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The gardens are beautiful and they really grow on you as you spend the week there - it becomes nicer and nicer to sit in the garden and read a book. The listing photo's accurately depict the home and amenities. The home was very clean. I have recommended this home to my family that lives in Portland for when they have large numbers of out of town guests come to visit. There are wonderful restaurants, ice cream parlors, gift shops, etc a 5 minute walk away in downtown Boothbay. We had a wonderful time and I recommend I highly recommend this home.
