Why The Owner chose West Boothbay Harbor

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.

Early Fall in Boothbay Harbor at the Beacon Hill Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Beacon Hill Cottage was clean, comfortable and in a great location for our visit to Boothbay Harbor, Southport Island and the area. The cottage is a short walk from Robbinson's Warf where we watched the lobstermen bring in their catch.....soon to be our dinner. The cottage was a great place to relax, plan our travels and stroll to Tug Pub for an evening drink or two. Boothbay Harbor was just a short ride up the road, with great places to eat, shop and meet some friendly "locals" and visitors on the docks.

Clean and comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

Close to Boothbay Harbor where there are lots of shops and restaurants and things to do. Cottage was clean and well stocked. We are a retired couple and we had beautiful weather so we spent most of our time exploring the Maine coastline (Camden, Rockport, Rockland etc.) At the end of the day it was so nice to come back to our comfy cottage.

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.
