About Geoff Cornell

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.

Geoff Cornell purchased this cottage in 1929

Serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in late June the gardens around the home were gorgeous, this property does not seem like a rental in any way. The pictures of the grounds do not do it justice. We appreciated having the deep water moorings and dock, and found many calm water periods for the kayaks. We had beautiful weather and spent a good deal of time on the spacious and well furnished porch, with both garden and ocean views. The Boothbay and mid coast area have much to offer for activities, but we found that a lot of our planned day trips went by the wayside, as we did not want to leave this property! The home itself was well appointed and accurately represented. The owners live nearby and made it clear that they were available for any questions or other needs. I hope to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Lovely guests to host, and thank you so much for taking such good care of our cottage! We are delighted when guests are so pleasantly surprised with it's ideal location, serenity and privacy. You are more than welcome to return! Paddling in the bay is one of our favorites too! Thank you for appreciating the gardens too! Most of all, thanks for taking the time to write us a lovely review!

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!

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 !

Thank you so much for taking such thoughtful care of the cottage, and we look forward to sharing our slice of heaven for years to come.

Can't go wrong

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.
