Why The Owner chose Maine

This is truly a family cottage. It's been in our family for about 30 years. Many happy summer memories of running around with cousins, sharing lobster dinners and waking up to Grandma Edna's blueberry pancakes.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is on a dead-end street so we don't get a lot of traffic and it's on a hill looking down on Decker Cove. We are not close to other cottages, so it's quiet, yet, because we are close to Southport bridge, we are just minutes from downtown Boothbay Harbor with its boat rides, restaurants and shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another relaxing vacation-a bit warmer than usual. Thanks for keeping the cottage so neat and clean.

Charming old style cottage

  • 5 of 5

In an ideal location, charming old style wood cottage with an intimate interior that allowed great family time together. It has all the modern communication devices, which we avoided as much as possible but I do like to read the online paper in the morning which was possible with the Wifi. Loved playing scrabble and cards with my grandchildren and eating way too much lobster from the seafood shop just down the hill. Had everything we needed to enjoy a great time.

Musty Cottage that made us ill - 0 stars

  • 1 of 5

This cottage had a musty smell to it, especially in the bedrooms and we woke up not feeling well from having slept in those conditions. The bathroom stunk terrible and wasn't for a few days time that I realized it was the bathroom mat they had in there. We encountered bugs and there were dirty dishes in the cupboard. We left early and would like money back. Very unhappy with conditions of the cottage.

Owner's Response: Although it is painful to read such a negative review of our beloved family cottage, we have to thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. We are sorry we did not know about these problems right away so we might have been able to save your vacation week, but we have made remedies (new shower mat, rewashed the dishes in the cupboard, new mattress for the middle bedroom, more dehumidifying tools) that will improve the stays of future guests, not to mention our own family’s experience. Thanks again.

peaceful relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Perfect sized cottage for me, two kids and my niece. The kitchen was well equipped. Convenient to the lobster pound and an easy drive down to town. Would recommend to friends!

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It was decorated beautifully and had all the amenities. We were surprised at how well the bathroom and kitchen were stocked. It was just like being at home. Everything was clean and the location is great. We hope to return next year and have that relaxing vacation.
