Richard Dick purchased this house in 1997
The everchanging view of the ocean and being basically a rocks throw away from the water was a selling point indeed. Also the quiet and serenity that exists here.
If one wishes for seaside shopping. dining and entertainment it is all within a five minute drive.
A perfect 'get away' home
Along with a constant view of the islands and the bay we can go walking for 3 minutes,down to the Historc All Saints Church and spend time at the picnic area and dock available there, or go swimming, boating, kayaking,and see the sights of not only Southport Island but Boothbay as well.
We love to have meals on the deck outside and entertain guests morning to night.
Just what I needed
Left on 09/20/2013 for a stay in August 2013
I spent a wonderful week with my husband and five children. All I wanted was to see the water and find some peaceful time. Waking up to a sunset and the sound of seagulls, and the creaking of boats in the water was the perfect medicine. My children loved all the water activities and excursions. We found ourselves in Boothbay almost every day. Great stores and restaurants. The owners are delightful and very helpful.
The location for this rental is right on the ocean, as described. Nice views. The cottage is stocked very well with linens, dishes, cookware, everything you could imagine. Never had a problem with the wifi or cable. The cottage is well worn but the owners do their best to keep on top of repairs, etc. They are very nice people and very helpful. There are a couple of items worth commenting on; 1) No access to the water or a beach nearby. 2) There is a short hiking path (dirt road) to a historical church but the house next door is not very friendly towards people walking through their yard even though it is supposed to be publicly accessible. 3) Be prepared to be woken up at dawn every day by the fisherman leaving on their lobster boats. We did enjoy watching sunrise everyday but it would have been nice to sleep in during our vacation. 4) People are constantly walking by the cottage on the path so there is very little privacy during the day. 5) The road to/from the cottage is bumpy, with ruts and rocks. Not ideal if you're driving a regular car. Plus you have to drive through the campground to get to the cottage and get to see everyone having fun at the campgrounds' beach, which you will not be able to use. 6) The stairs to the 2nd floor master bedroom are dangerous. It is steep, out of alignment and the stairs are not all the same size. Getting luggage up and down was precarious. It is not safe for kids, the elderly or anyone with any type of physical challenges. I think that this is a great place to use as base for visiting the area, they welcome pets, you can cook your own meals quite easily and Southport Island is beautiful.
This is a cottage with a lot of unique characteristics. It is situated at the edge of the water, allowing the visitor to sit on the lower deck to witness lobster men and women at work . From the master bedroom you have the advantage of watching the sunrise from the very comfortable king sized bed or outside on the adjoining upper deck. The view from this bedroom is second to none, especially if you appreciate the changing tides, the salt air and the smell of pines on the Maine coast.
The cottage is in need of some repair, but itis clean and filled with linens, towels and kitchen utensils. The only hindrance is the steep stairs to the upper floor, making it difficult fr a small child or elder' s safety . However, there are two bedrooms on the first floor to address this if it is an issue for renters .
Kayaks are available to rent within walking distance, and you have to visit the South Port General Store for their gourmet breakfast pizza.
The Captain's Cottage was a great headquarters for our trip to Maine with two young children. The cottage has plenty of room for one or two families. The house is not equipped with modern conveniences (i.e., dishwasher, new furniture, etc.), but it worked fine for us. The views from the master bedroom upstairs were amazing! We enjoyed walking to the All Saints Church beach and playing on the rocks. Also, we rented kayaks from the campsite next door. We all agreed that we should return to Maine for another vacation!
