Our very special and beautiful cottage has remained in our family since 1929! We have enjoyed summers in Boothbay as the cottage has been passed down thru generations. We like to share our home with those who appreciate and respect it's beauty, superb location, beautiful antiques and heirloom braided rugs. Our great grandmother made all the rugs on the front porch of the cottage, while enjoying the views of the ocean and wildlife. The cottage has been well maintained and updated tastefully, while still retaining charm.

WONDERFUL SPOT FOR A FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our two boys (9 and 7) - along with her parents - had a fantastic stay for two weeks here. The house is the perfect blend of "old Maine charm" - exposed beams, beautiful floors, neat antiques, etc. - combined with modern conveniences where they count - nice washer/dryer, great kitchen, new bathroom in the downstairs master, etc.

The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had literally everything we could have asked for, and the gas grill outside was huge and well maintained.

Outside the house was a paradise - the gardens were gorgeous, the lawn gently sloped down to the water, and there were plenty of fun rocks for the boys to play on. Finally, there is an excellent dock with a ladder and the swimming was great.

Lots to do in the area, it was nice being only 5 minutes from Boothbay, but a world away in much quieter East Boothbay. The East Boothbay General store is a pleasant walk, and they have excellent lunch options there. The Maine Botanical Gardens and the nearby Linekin Bay Land Trust preserves have some great hiking which we enjoyed as well.

Owner's Response: What a nice family from down south! The young boys bonded with our neighbors children, and to faintly hear the young voices on the shore frolicking in the water was a delight. Our guests took exceptional care of the cottage and we really appreciate it when guests take care of things as if it's their very own. They are returning next year and we look forward to welcoming them back! Thank you North Carolina for your kind review!

5 STAR VIEW AND SERVICE!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot speak highly enough of my Labor Day weekend stay here. Geoff is extremely knowledgeable about the area, as well as a courteous and helpful host. When I expressed interest in the Maine Botantical Gardens (a must see!), he happened to have some free time, and took me there on his family's membership.

The room was comfortable and clean, and the view is absolutely spectacular. You have access to an outdoor grill and a full kitchen, a nice plasma TV with a DVD player, and a cozy wood burning fireplace. Although I didn't get out there this trip, there are lots of great places to kayak around the inlets of the Boothbay region.

This is a great romantic getaway, or quiet retreat. I will definitely visit again!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having this lovey guest in our cottage. She arrived from Boston under pressure, and by the time she was due to leave, she was refreshed, rejuvenated and restored with a radiant smile. She can't wait to return to do some paddling and sit by the fireplace. She really loved the warm fires on those cool nights on the water. Thanks for taking care of our blissful cottage!

You are going to return to this paradise rain or shine - its Maine's best kept secret. The private chef, concierge, and housekeeping are impeccable. You will love the outdoor shower, wrap around deck, easy drive to town, scenic privacy and quaint, updated ammenities. Plenty of parking, wonderful fireplace, and great for the whole family. Book a lobster dinner on the shuffle board court. It doesn't get any better than this inn, its Bliss!

EXPERT RENTERS

The many years of renting have only been wonderful. The house is perfect in all ways and within minutes you feel comfortable and relaxed. It is an easy house to have family and friends as the large porch is the place where much of the gathering takes place and the bedrooms are just as they look in the photos and are comfortable . The living room and large dining table make it possible for all to dine or sit together. If you enjoy cooking the kitchen makes it easy and most enjoyable with even a view from that room as well. The outside shower is a favorite of all. The dock out front makes it easy to swim , keep your boat and just sit and enjoy tranquillity . Try it you will not be disappointed !

CAN'T GO WRONG

Can't go wrong
  • 5 of 5
For two years running our family has met up for a week of bliss at this lovely and spectacular Maine cottage. We are scattered across the country, so this ends up being the only time we can all get away, and this cottage serves as our family home for that week. We love to cook and eat, and it is rare that a vacation home would make you feel like you were cooking with your family at home, but that's what happens. And on top of it all, you get views and access to Linekin Bay, which is gorgeous. Top it all off with an invigorating late night dip in the water and you are in heaven.

Definitely indulge yourself with the outside shower (there are showers inside as well) and spend as much time as you can on the porch and on the dock, soaking in the views. The owners are very sweet people and have made our trips memorable.

The home itself is beautiful, clean and well furnished. The listing was accurate in its descriptions, and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering staying in the area.

It is rare to find a rental that feels like a home
And one that offers comfort and beauty.
While visiting with my family, I can't begin to
Remember a place that offered so many optio
For us. Dining in the dining room, having breakdast
On the porch, sitting around the BBQ pit while
Having cocktails and barbequing dinner.
Sitting on the dock watching the boats, or the
On the patio staring out to the bay, its breathtaking
The area is amazing ro explore with a great
Town and many dining options. But the real
Prize is having found this cottage, a home everyone
Dreams of. I strongly recommend the Chef, he
Was awesome!

East Boothbay is a charming small village about three miles from Boothbay Harbor. We have a fantastic general store, operated by a retired private chef, within walking distance of the cottage. Gourmet food, fresh local produce, wines, beverages, etc.

Boothbay Botanical Gardens is not to be missed! Absolutely stunning gardens with over 250 acres of river front.

Lighthouses, outlet shops in Freeport, The Farnsworth Museum and Camden are all brilliant day trips. Boothbay is centrally located on the coast, making it an ideal base to explore the fascinating coast of Maine!

We have three deep water moorings, should you choose to arrive by boat/ yacht.
