Chip Newell and Susan Morris returned to Maine eight years ago after decades of living all over the US and Canada. Chip first experienced Maine as a student at Bowdoin College and Susan traveled through Maine on her way to the family cottage in Prince Edward Island from Montreal while growing up.

Susan has been in the hospitality and lodging business for over 25 years, including 13 years with Marriott Hotels. She is a bit of a cleanliness nut. Chip has always been in the real estate business, developing hotels, resorts, residences and condos in places as diverse as Washington, DC, Denver, western North Carolina, South Beach Miami, Puerto Rico and Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Chip and Susan live 10 minutes away from Boothbay Cottages in Boothbay Harbor. Far enough away to ensure your privacy and close enough to be helpful if a need arises.

Three years ago Chip and Susan sold their condo in South Beach Miami and chose to live in Boothbay Harbor on a year-round basis. They love the community and there is so much to do in mid-coast Maine!

When we saw the unique benefit of being able to enjoy both the ocean and a lake grabbed our interest. Views of both from the cottages! Plus it is an amazing century old community of cottages on a quiet dead end road yet so close to the heart of the Harbor.

Ocean and lake views and access. Quiet dead end road. Seasonal community. Close to Linekin Bay Resort, Barrett's Park, Boothbay Region Land Trust trails. Yet only one mile into town.

Lakeside Cottage was so peaceful and comfortable for the two of us and our two Beagles. The cottage had everything needed for a pleasent stay. Susan phoned us the first night to see if she could do anything for us, or if we needed anything. They even supplied extra towels and blankets for the dogs, not sure if they supplied the red squirrels, but the dogs had a blast looking for them.

A beautiful place to vacation and take the dogs

If your "kids" have four legs and fur and you don't want to leave them at home when you go on vacation, then Boothbay Cottages should be high on your list. They don't just tolerate pets, they welcome them, even multiples, and yet, you'd never know that other dogs had been there before. The cottage is super clean, nicely appointed, and very comfortable. With home style amenities at the cottage (including a good kitchen, big TV, nice furniture, relaxing deck, books, DVDs, etc) and the beautiful town of Boothbay Harbor, the ocean, a pond, and hiking trails nearby, your vacation can be as expansive or as self contained as you want, as busy or as relaxed. The owner thoughtfully leaves information in the cottage about local activities, interesting shops,restaurants and more. So, take the dogs. They'll have a good time snoozing in the sun on the deck, taking long walks, and dreaming about all the chipmunks and squirrels they've seen. You'll have a good time, too, and a wonderful vacation. We like it so much that we've vacationed at the Oceanview cottage for four years in a row!

Lakeside Cottage

  • Submitted: Jul 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
All in all, this was a very nice place to stay. It offered a quiet, low key place to be with close proximity to the ocean, great walks and a quick drive to town. It suited our needs as it had a gas grill, laundry, dog friendly and easy access to the pond and ocean. It also had creature comforts such as tv/dvd, WiFi and outdoor dining.
As for dining out, our favorites are the lobster rolls at Red's Eats in Wiscasset, The Tugboat in BBH, the homemade ice cream shop next to McSeagull's in BBH and Ports of Italy in BBH.
We would definitely recommend this place.

Serene Fall Setting and Sunsets

  • Submitted: Feb 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
Stayed in the Lakeside Cottage in the fall and it was beautiful. The setting is serene and the cottage has everything you need to enjoy the area. We had two dogs with us, who loved going for many walks around the area, including just right out the front door to the lake or to the ocean. We loved Boothbay and have some of the most spectacular pictures of sunsets we've ever seen taken down over the harbor. The town has a few nice restaurants and lively bars, but we mostly stayed around the cottage. We easily cooked meals and relaxed at this stocked cabin! Susan was a fantastic host and provided lots of ideas for places to go, suggestions for activities to enjoy with the dogs, and was very easy to work with!
We loved going out in the kayaks on the lake and just watching nature surround us from the deck. We hope to return soon--maybe this time in the Oceanview Cottage!

Cool 3 Week August Vacation from Texas

  • Submitted: Dec 20, 2011
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
This vacation is the best we've ever had. Even the dogs were in seventh heaven in this great 2 bdrm/2 bath home. We didn't want to leave. Great private location/very relaxing/close to everything/all the conveniences of home are just a few ways to describe this location. The lake on one side, the ocean on the other was so great.
The conveniences of deck/kayaks/lawn chairs/washer & dryer on site made it seem like our home instead of someone else’s. It was 3 weeks of pure heaven from the over 100 degree temperatures in Texas. There is a great city park to take the dogs or picnic and it’s right on the water. If you love to walk, you'll love this place. Susan Morris is the best-if you have a question, most of the answers are right there in the living room table. If not there, she's easy to call or email and will get you the info. She is just plain great and so is her place. Our son-in-law and grandson came to visit and the 2nd bdrm w/attached bath was so perfect. They loved it too and we weren't falling over each other like other rentals we have had.

"Bookthbay "Cottage"

  • Stayed: Sep 2011
We rented this two room "cottage" the last week in Sept. 2011. If you are looking for a rental that gives you the feel of a Maine coastal village, this is not the place. The second story walk-up over a garage is in a wooded area with a narrow view to a small lake across the road, and is several miles from the town of Boothbay Harbor. The property has rotting window frames, neglected appliances and needs a deep cleaning. It does have access to a washer & dryer in the garage below behind a door which is almost impossible to raise. We did find free passes for the arboretum which is wonderful and the town of Boothbay Harbor is charming. In short don't stay here. Compared to the immaculate , furnished roomy cottage which we rented for $200 less the prior week it is an overpriced d----.

Fun for family with dogs

We loved our stay in the Ocean View cottage. It's cute and nice enough to feel comfortable, but not SO nice that I had to worry about my kids all the time. The wifi is nice convenience, and the kids liked the big TV.

Beware that the pictures do not tell the whole story. The pictures don't convey the smell and feel of the ocean breeze that you feel while sitting on the deck, or even while you're inside with the windows open. It's mesmerizing.

We enjoyed kayaking with the kids on the pond, and hiking some of the Boothbay Region Land Trust trails, which are easy enough for small kids.

Our dogs had a great time swimming, and romping in the woods. I am happy that the owner is welcoming to responsible pet owners.

Overall, we had a great time, and the cottage had everything we needed. We hope to go back next year (so if you're reading this, please don't book the week we want!).

Such a really relaxing vacation. The cottage was great. There were lots of visits down to Barrett Park for cool down dips for us and the dog. We have highly recommended the area to friends and family. We hope we can make it back again next summer. :) Nivanthi and Tim. New Brunswick, Canada
