'An Tigin' means Tiny Cottage in Gaelic, but this one has a big heart within its cozy, cheerful interior. Curl up by the woodstove to watch the tide change from low to high and back again. Bring back lobster & enjoy the view from the deck. Enjoy the feeling of island living all with comfy beds, comfy furniture & new appliances (2009). Our property is about 1 and a half acres, water views on the one side and woods on the other, a little of both of what Mother Nature can offer. Easy access to walk down to the water, no cliffs or dangerous rocks to fall from here. A nice view across to Capitol Island and Squirrel Island beyond. A safe little 'harbor' between Capitol & Southport Island, perfect to swim or kayak in if you are apprehensive about strong currents. Sit on the rocks or the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee for a peaceful start to the day or a glass of wine to relax the evening away. Listen to the foghorns, the gulls crying or the lobster boats going by, a sound to be truly memorable. Use our kayak or bring your own & discover the inlets around Southport. Only a short drive to a few beaches for relaxing and swimming, fish off the Swing Bridge. Fragrant flowers galore in my gardens and plenty of songbirds in the trees, along with peace, quiet & the ocean, what more can you ask for? Great place for walking, oh & don't forget the camera for those beautiful landscapes. Slow down, take a deep salt air breath & relax, you are at 'An Tigin'!!
Things to See & Do in Boothbay: What is there not to do in Boothbay Harbor!!! Southport has a swing bridge with a fantastic view, great to fish or daydream from, three lighthouses can be seen from various island locations. Southport also has a small, clean beach close to a lighthouse, fun for swimming, shelling and enjoying the view all without leaving the island. The aquarium is 2 miles, the Railway Station & the mini putt-putt golf course is 7 miles and fun for kids of all ages. Shops & restaurants galore. Boat trips, both power & sail leave the harbor all day long. Kayak rentals to go out on your own. Charter a fishing boat for the day. A world class Botanical Garden and many Land Trust hiking trails. Antique shops and flea markets too! Take a day trip to Monhegan, a trip worth experiencing, a step back in time!! The entire Boothbay peninsula has so much to offer and such beautiful scenery you have to go no further than that, but if you do want to head out further, it is a great base for sightseeing!
Short Stay rentals in shoulder season: During shoulder periods where 3 or 4 days rentals can be booked, the dates must be consecutive and within a Saturday to Saturday period. If dates booked straddle two weeks a $75 fee will be charged. An example of this is a Friday arrival, departing on Monday, this takes up two separate weeks where a full week booking can be otherwise made, if you book more than seven days and would like more days, you are able to cross over into another week at no extra charge. Our season is so very short here that to 'chop' up full Satruday to Saturday weeks will only lose potential bookings. I hope this poses no inconvenience to future guests, but a financial fact of Home/cottage rentals.
