I am a producer for CBS Sunday Morning , with long time family connections to the Boothbay region, and a deep love of the area, and the Carriage House.

Mary Lou Teel purchased this house in 1985

This is our beloved home...and has been for 30 years. We enjoy sharing it with others who will love it and enjoy it as we have.

We love to swim in the tidal pool at Knickerkane Park, and the fresh water of Knickerbocker Lake. We love to kayak on the Back River, and either walk or bike or paddle to the Trevett Store for lobster rolls and burgers. We love walking along the paths,and through the gardens of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens next door, and in the wooded paths of the Porter Preserve on Barters Island. We love to sit on the porch on summer evenings and watch the sun go down.

Lovely house, good location!

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House is lovely, airy and cozy at the same time, with lots of family artifacts around (making it feel homey without making the guest feel at all unwelcome), and a million books, and also a big smart TV (and a great set of DVDs; we watched The Big Lebowski and The Royal Tenanbaums while relaxing at night) and pretty muscular RR WiFi internet. It's immaculately maintained (the lawn crew may wake you up with their mowers one morning of the week, but you should be up early to enjoy the day anyway!).

The location is an easy drive to Boothbay Harbor, a nice walk to both the Botanical Gardens and the famous hand-operated bridge in Trevett (and the nice little park, with a place to swim, closer by, and the Trevett store out by the far bridge), and yet still out of the way. There's a nice view of the tidal river-mouth from both floors (better from the upper level of course!). It's not far from the road, and you can hear cars and trucks going by, but it wasn't a problem for us (and there's not much traffic at all at night).

You can get some idea how nice the house was from the fact that, even though our car's distributor gave out just as we were pulling into the driveway and we had to deal with taxis and rentals and repair shops at intervals throughout the week, it was still one of the comfiest stays we've had in Maine. :)

Wonderful even with rain!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a 3 week stay at the Carriage House. We had our children, grandchildren, in-laws and friends with us at various times. We found the house adequate for our needs and felt very much at home. The kitchen is very nice though a little small for more than 2 people at a time. Everything functioned well and there was plenty of sleeping space for 7 - 8 people. My only complaint would be the noise from the busy road in front of the house. We were not expecting that and took some getting used to. The front porch is wonderful and makes the house very inviting for everyone. We enjoyed the porch even though the weather was rainy and cool at times. Also, the stairs are rather steep and narrow. Probably not a good place for elderly or people with knee problems. It is an older home, so these are the things one should expect. We loved our stay at the Carriage House and would return. The location was very convenient and the owner was wonderful to work with.

Wonderful, Cozy and Oh, that Porch!!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I spent a lovely week, 8/25 - 9/1/12 at the Carriage House. As we are long-time visitors to the area, this house is in the perfect location. Close to the Harbor and Ocean Point, but so nice and quiet here. Try Bets fish up the road and Trevett's lobster rolls down the road. The gigantic screened-in porch( a prerequisite of mine) was so beautiful and relaxing. We never even used the dining room table or the living room. It was from the kitchen to the porch to our clean, cozy beds. The house has that oldtime seashore feel, so clean and we didn't see one bug anywhere. Interesting decor and a large book library. I actually got to read Uncle Tom's Cabin again and the history of Boothbay. This is truly a home away from home. My only minor complaint is I wish there was a flat-screen TV and more channels available, but I survived. Can't wait to go back next summer. Beautiful sunsets over the Back River!

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the Carriage House in June of 2009 and vacationed there with our three young children (9 mos., 2 years, and 4 years old). The owner had a portable crib available and set up for our use when we arrived. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the loft area and the Weeble Wobble tree house as well as the playground up the road at the YMCA camp. The kitchen is equipped with all the amenities of a high end kitchen so if you enjoy cooking you'll love this house. Also, it was a nice, quiet location for our family and the screened in porch was great for the kids to play on and my husband I to relax on after the kids were in bed. The stairs to the 2nd floor are steep, but manageable for kids. The property was very clean and well equipped with comfortable furnishings. We ran into one problem with the water heater and Mary Lou took care of it immediately. She also gave us helpful recommendations for food and activities. The Botanical Garden, YMCA, and kayak launch were all within walking distance of the house. The beach and downtown area are a 10 minute drive away.

Comfortable and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Carriage House several times. Unlike some rentals, the Carriage House excudes warmth and a true home feeling. The kitchen is suburbly outfitted and the entire downstairs is an open floor plan. The wrap around SCREENED porch is where we all spent our time. We used the little landing directly across the river to launch our kayaks and enjoyed hdaily paddles of varying length around the islands. Drive down to the country store for your newspaper, return to the porch with coffee and its a perfect start to the day. Don't miss the many walks available by virtue of the Conservation Trust.

The Porch, The Porch, The Porch

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated my birthday in this wonderful house at the top of a hill. Although it was just the two of us, there's plenty of space. It's a perfect getaway for families with children. Even though there was a chill in the September air, I spent almost every waking moment on the screened-in porch.

Owner's Response: The Carriage House is a perfect year round get away. There is oil heat, along with woodstoves upstairs and down. Newly insulated walls and windows that make it cozy even on the coldest Maine days.
The fall colors are beautiful, and the porch is a favorite spot to leaf peep from, for those who prefer to curl up like a cat on their vacation. Nearby trails for those who prefer more dog-like recreation.
