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.

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.

Beautiful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully restful vacation in Boothbay Harbor due to this lovely rental. The pictures don't do justice to the beautiful gardens and views. There are so many different spots to sit - in the sun or the shade - that you never get bored. And it is literally just a 5 minute walk to the downtown. We had old and young in our party and everyone loved it -- in fact, my wife has already insisted we go back next year!

MAINE-HOME-LOCATION...COULDN'T BE BETTER!!!

MAINE-HOME-LOCATION...COULDN'T BE BETTER!!!
  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Maine from Florida for my family and some of my friends (8 of us), and we were not sure what to expect. First of all, the house is way more gorgeous than the pictures on the web site. The furnishings were very comfortable and top of the line; No campy furniture like some of the places we have been. The shower on the main floor is breathtaking and we understand was designed by Alden. The grounds and the gardens are just simply fabulous. So many little oasis's to sit and enjoy the views of the cove. We raided the strawberry patch, and the blueberry bushes were next.

It rained on the 4th and then again on the 5th. The kids were disappointed that the fireworks were cancelled. Alden provided a show of his own right from the dock on the water. Great show, kids loved it. At night we enjoyed having a fire at the outdoor pit and roasting Smores.

The kids loved that they could just walk to town and have their independence from us. The Ice Cream Factory was always their destination. This was very convenient location for all of us as we could come and go as we pleased and didn't have to worry about parking. Our favorite place to eat was the "Boat House Bistro", however, we just loved to stay at home and cook in the gourmet kitchen and dine on the deck or in the sun room overlooking the cove. The living room was large, but cozy and was a relaxing location for our family.

Alden was very helpful in directing us to various places to visit. One was the Pemaquid Lighthouse. Great family outing. Ocean Point and Barrett Park are beautiful places to spend the day.

The kids got to fish in the cove from the kayaks and our son caught a striped bass. What great fun. We never cooked lobster before and wanted to have a traditional lobster bake. Alden and Karen came over and showed us how to make the complete meal. What fun. Now we are pros......

We are sad to leave and right then decided to return to see more of Maine. We only hope that we can find a home and location as perfect as this was.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Disappointed

  • 3 of 5
The owners greeted us on our arrival, and did not even know my name. I was very disappointed to find that the owners lived downstairs. It was not disclosed until our arrival. I felt like we were constantly being watched. You could hear the TV playing and dogs barking from downstairs. They spent one entire day out back weeding and mowing. We had 2 small children and were forced to stay inside. They kept a sprinkler going in the back, which with the ocean breeze made it impossible to eat on the deck and the use the backyard, without getting wet. I did not feel they were concerned at all about our time there. They have the best of both worlds, living there and collecting money.
The garbage compactor smelled very fishy. There were mice spotted in kitchen, thankfully not until our last night! The house is located right on a very busy street. It was noisy in the front bedroom. It was difficult sleeping. Did not feel it was worth the money and I am very surprised about the other reviews.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to read your review and to learn that you are disappointed with your stay at Mill Cove. It is unfortunate that you felt you could not speak to us about any conditions you were unhappy with. Our listing states that the owner maintains an apartment on site. This prevents us or any of our staff from having to come into the main house for water, or toilet facilities, while we care for the grounds. This has never been a problem in the three seasons we have rented Alden's family home. It is unusual for Alden or me to spend more than a day or two on premise. It just so happened that the winter was so long and the spring so cold and wet, that we could not get the gardens in before the rental season began.

The lawn, home and gardens are always maintained by us so that our guests will never have to experience strangers on the premises while they are trying to enjoy their vacation. We are deeply sorry that your were inconvenience by us watering the gardens so that there would be beautiful flowers and green grass for you and all of our guests to enjoy. Yes, we did water and weed for part of the day. It was extremely hot and the gardens were very dry. We explained to you what we were doing there. It is hard to conceive that you would enjoy a vacation anywhere, where there is not someone taking care of the grounds and property.

We take a great deal of pride in the home and gardens as this is Alden's legacy to his children and grandchildren.
We are proud to know that this home is clean, well furnished and provides all the amenities that we do, to make anyone's vacation memorable.

As for the mouse, thank you for letting us know. We let Catrina come in and she caught the mouse. Even some of the most expensive homes here have a mouse or two that manage to get in during the rainy season. Despite the mouse, we hope you found this home clean and well maintained.

The five star reviews that we have received thus far, are because of the pride, great care and attention to detail that we have in taking care of the home and property and the rapport that we have with our guests. Alden and I are both very people oriented and we did try to communicate with you and offer our services.

We do hope that you somehow managed to enjoy some aspect of your vacation here.

Again, please accept our sincerest apologies for your inconveniences.
