Boothbay Harbor Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6-8

The Rendezvous is located on Juniper Point in scenic Boothbay Harbor, Maine. This classic shingle style Maine cottage offers water views and many of today's amenities, including wireless internet, dvd player, and a washer and dryer on the premises. The Rendezvous is a spacious family friendly home with 4 bedrooms (all on second floor: 1 queen, 1 full, 4 twins) and 2 full bathrooms (1 up w/claw foot tub and 1 down with shower), a large fully equipped kitchen, a dining room w/seating for 6-8, a nicely decorated living room with a restored fireplace, a front porch, a screened back porch, a back deck, and beautiful perennial gardens. The association beach is available to renters and is only a short walk, and for a fee you can enjoy tennis on clay courts, ping pong in the community house and use of the association docks. Close to in-town restaurants, quaint shops, fine art galleries, the Maine State Aquarium, the Coastal Botanical Gardens and the Boothbay Railway Village.

Local Activities for the Family: A guest notebook is on the premises to acquaint the renter to property and also lists local restaurants, activities and attractions, some of which include: the Opera House and Boothbay Play House offering family entertainment. The Coastal Botanical Gardens offering scenic walks, talks and lunches in their cafe. There's Mini Golf, the Boothbay Railway Village and the Maine State Aquarium offering activities for children. Take the ferry to Monhegan Island or go to Burnt Island for a Lighthouse tour. There are many local camps for children to attend, including the YMCA's popular Camp Knickerbocker and the Boothbay and Southport Yacht Clubs offer youth sailing programs. Or simply walk to the Juniper Point Beach and relax in the sun while the children swim and play in the tidal pool. Eating Maine Lobster is a must, so please support this important industry by cooking your own or dining out in-town at one of the many restaurants offering this delicious fare.

Start north in Camden and visit the Camden Hills State Park offering hiking, swimming at Lake Magunticook and downtown shopping.

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Rendezvous Cottage with our two sons, age 4 and 7, and another family with two boys, age 2 and 7. The cottage could not have been more comfortable or family friendly. The owners, welcoming and accommodating, met us at check-in to show us the area. The private beach/cove is a short walk down a path and provided countless hours of fun for the boys from searching the tidal pools to swimming to the raft. If you're looking for sea glass there was plenty! A large field on another cove, just behind the house, provided plenty of running around space for the boys. The location of the cottage is perfect for the local sights. We enjoyed the shops and restaurants of the downtown area, along with the old time bowling alley and mini-golf, all a short car ride away. Local farmer's markers were plentiful. A 15 minute ferry ride brought us to the lighthouse on Burnt Island which serves as a "living museum". Three BEAUTIFUL beaches (Popham, Pemequid, Reed) are all around an hour away and made for great day trips. The aquarium, with it's amazing touch tank, is "bike-able" from the cottage. Our stay at the Rendezvous was one of the most memorable of all our family vacations. It is a special place and I would highly recommend it!

SUPERB FAMILY RENTAL

  • 5 of 5

If you looked up Perfect Rustic Maine Cottage on wikipedia you'd find Rendezvous Cottage. At least one person in our group would say on a daily basis "This is SO Maine!" We can't say enough good things about this cottage. It's in a beautiful location, clean, spacious and comfortable and the owners are helpful and friendly. My daughter loved all the retro toys and books (can't get Don't Break the Ice over here in the UK!!). Plenty to do in nearby Boothbay Harbor and you can walk to Tugs Pub (just across the swing bridge to Newagen). Scenery is unbeatable, and the sound of the lighthouse (or was it a foghorn?) at night was very soothing. I only hope we can stay again next summer.
