Guests may supply their own linens or subscribe to optional linen service for an extra fee. Well-behaved dogs will be considered for an extra fee per dog. This is a smoke-free establishment.

  • 4 of 5

Location location location is everything. very close to town. The owner Margaret is very helpful. The house is small yet ideal for a couple. There is a steep hill which you will need to climb when you come and go. We enjoy the time in Boothbay

Best rental in Boothbay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this awesome little house when we got married on 7/26. Not only is it the perfect location just in town, but it's also pushed back in the woods just enough to give you privacy. Our dog enjoyed the huge fenced in backyard. The owner was very accommodating and gave us everything we needed to make our vacation outstanding! There is a great book collection and it was so cozy having fires. I would recommend this rental to anyone that wants to have the best vacation!

LITTLE HOUSE - Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Just as my title says - Home Away From Home. Little House is just that. It is welcoming, warm, comfortable, super clean, well-maintained, well-appointed, and owned by a wonderful person Margaret Perritt. Margaret makes your stay so great that you don't always feel like having to leave it for shopping, sightseeing, or dining out. If the spirit moves you, you feel content just to stay there for the day. Margaret is also just a local phone call away (phone in the cottage) if there are any problems and she is there in a heartbeat if you need her.

This is our 3rd time to LH, but many times to BBH. The area is rich in views beyond your imagination, shops that delight all senses, eateries to tickle the most delicate of palates - and, of course, lobster!!, and just plain Down East experiences. If you find a need to go outside of the Harbor, I would suggest the Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, the Maritime Museum in Bath, and best of all, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse on the Pemiquid peninsula out of Damariscotta. As many times as we have been to BBH, we finally did the Balmy Days II boat ride to Monhegan Island and would do it again.

Little House is perfect for a family of four (5 if one doesn't mind sleeping on the couch - it is very comfortable! We've done it). The kitchen is so well-supplied there is really nothing that you need to bring for that purpose. The dining area is so sunny and bright - perfect for playing games or doing jigsaw puzzles that Margaret has so thoughtfully stashed away for rainy days, and of course meals.

She even has made available hats, binoculars, umbrellas, maps, guides, dog-walking baggies, and much more. She has thought of everything - a fan in each room, too!

The driveway is up a hill, pretty steep, but even I was able to navigate it on foot as a senior citizen. It is so peaceful up there on the hill away from the roar of the traffic on Rte 27.

I cannot wait to get back there again as I have left my heart in BBH and LH!

Cute and Cozy with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

A nice "Little House" that is in the perfect location. Easy walks into town where shops, restaurants and the harbor itself. Return trip is up the steep driveway but made for a good little workout.

The inside is tidy and has a clean full kitchen that supplies all you would need to prepare any meals (if you decide not to walk into town) and there is a modern updated bathroom. The bungalow does show its age in the bedrooms and living room (with a nice stone fireplace!) but is part of the charm and overall ambiance.

The off-site owner is very pleasant to deal with and made our stay very pleasant.

Thanks MJP, we'll be back!!!

Serene and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Little House was peaceful and clean. The kitchen was nicely supplied and the house has great natural lighting - light, bright and cheery. We loved the location to downtown - everything was within a nice walking distance.

Boothbay Harbor is a classic New England seaport. This small community is becoming, once again, the wooden boat building center of the east coast. The Jamestown 2007 ship, 'Discovery', was built here. Nearby Pemiquid Lighthouse and the rocky coast is a must-see. A visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens; the Railroad Village and the Aquarium will thrill the children and adults alike. The Opera House offers exciting programs throughout the summer. The whole family will enjoy cruising out into the Bay of Maine to see whales, harbor seals and the many islands that dot the seascape. Community theater, band concerts on the commons, Windjammer Days, fireworks over the Harbor, and homemade ice cream make life grand in the summertime in Boothbay Harbor! For a tour of the area and to see Little House, please click on the link under Further Details.

Other Activities: Deep sea fishing and whale watching. Kayaking and canoeing
