Boothbay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 2 bedroom, 2 bath, front porch, eat-in kitchen, first floor master, fireplace

Spectacular Water Views from every room. Our year round 5 room cottage is located in Boothbay Harbor, nestled among the ledges of Hodgdon Cove 150 feet from the water. We purchased this home because this Cove has all the beauty the Maine coast is known for, a secluded location, and convenient access to town. With a dishwasher, washer & dryer, updated appliances, & wireless Internet, this is a perfect retreat. When not rented, this cottage serves as a vacation home for us, the owners, and when you stay here you get the attention to detail and the comforts we enjoy when we live here ourselves. The house has everything you need to prepare anything from a home cooked lobster dinner to a barbecue meal. Whether you are relaxing on the front porch enjoying the spectacular sunsets, enjoying a cozy evening by the wood burning fireplace, or sitting at the kitchen table watching the cove wildlife wake up in the morning, this is a wonderful placed to be.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage, beautiful views of the Cove. The area is close enough to everything, but far enough away that all you hear at night are the crickets.

Our kids loved exploring the yard, and also really appreciated the basket of toys the homeowners left to keep them busy. :o)

The house was clean and comfortable. Thank you for a great weekend!

Delightful summer cottage with a beautiful view of the water.

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed this cottage for several years. It is quite comfortable, offers lovely views of the water, and is very quiet and peaceful though close to shopping, restaurants, and a myriad of other activities. Kitchen has all of the basics, master bedroom is quite spacious and offers a very comfortable chair for reading, and the living room has plenty of seating and a flat screen tv. The second floor would be perfect for kids - a second smaller bathroom, good sized bedroom with several twin beds, and a separate tv/game room just for them. And best of all, there are plenty of windows to bring in the morning sunlight, views of boats on the water, and that wonderful ocean breeze.

Perfect Cottage to experience Boothbay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable, it has wonderful light and a nice warm feeling throughout. The owners are very nice and accommodating. All the little touches are there that you hope to find when you rent, like extra blankets, pillows, instructions on how to use tv, good kitchen utensils, etc. you feel like the owners care, which is great. The area is really beautiful and it is perfect location for visiting downtown boothbay, but having the cottage to escape back to a more rustic and quiet atmosphere. Cottage is Large enough for a family of 5 and dog to feel comfortable and not cramped. We hope to rent again in the future.

Extraodinary views

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable and the views from the porch were extraordinary! Boothbay downtown is lovely and everyone is genuinely very friendly. We really enjoyed the Botanical Gardens.

My only criticism is the lack of closet space for hanging clothes.

Secluded, sunny cottage with great access to town

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week at sunny Hodgdon Cove Cottage and would recommend it highly. It had everything needed for a multi-generational gathering. We found fire wood for a toasty fire on chilly Maine nights, close proximity to several beautiful hikes, and kid-friendly books & toys. Adults had quiet nooks to read, and internet access provided necessary work-connects. The kitchen was well-appointed, accommodating way too many cooks! The new master suite is lovely & beds were comfortable. The home had a quiet seclusion & feeling of genuine safety but was just minutes from town & the grocery store, shops & great restaurants. (Try McSeagulls for lobster as well as great vegetarian dishes.) The owners have a generosity of spirit & were attentive to our needs before we asked. We found extra bunk beds in the large upstairs bedroom. Try to get there in daylight as we had a bit of trouble finding the house. It's just off the main street & down a little lane. Family members came from New York City, Denver, San Diego...and agreed it was exactly the respite and retreat we needed.
