Perfect Maine Cottage Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at this wonderful Juniper Point cottage and cannot wait to come back! This is the perfect Maine getaway for families and is fully stocked with games, fishing gear, and anything else you need for a great vacation. The location is right on Townsend Gut and couldn't have been a better location for our boat and has great proximity to Boothbay and Southport. Ironically, our extended family rented another home in East Boothbay but everyone congregated at Juniper Point for the "fun" activities. There is an awesome fire pit that is perfect for making s'mores, large screened patio, and a very nice private dock. WiFi enabled us to keep up with the corporate world during our stay and we can't say enough great things about the owners hospitality and the wonderful neighbors. Definitely recommend this property for families and anyone who truly wants a great Maine cottage experience!

Perfect vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this cottage and loved it. We've been coming to the area for ten years now, but this was our visit time at this cottage. It was perfect. Our kids (7 and 11) loved all the books and games. Our son participated in the tennis clinic. We walked to the beach and the aquarium. Our kids made friends and loved swimming from the association dock to float. Beautiful view and lots of boat traffic. We had coffee each morning on the porch or dock. The cottage has everything you need, is very clean and inviting. We already plan to return.

So much to do, even when it rains.

  • 5 of 5

This is a really cute cabin chock full of fun. If the weather is bad there are tons of books, toys and games to occupy your time. The aquarium down the road is also a blast. The view from the living room is the best. What a good time! I would definately go back!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We just recently spent our second summer at this cottage. Our stay was even better than it was last year due to the fact that we rented it for two weeks, rather than one. The location, constant thrill of the boat traffic, and the charm of the cottage are incomparable.

Truly an old fashioned Maine summer cottage

  • 3 of 5

Positive aspects include very nice owners who left nice touches for us, beautiful views, cottage has some modern renovations (lovely porch & modern bathroom)....however, consider drawbacks which include: lack of privacy (there's a very close cottage right next door), lack of microwave (vacation should mean easier cooking!), lack of comfy seating (furniture is very old), and lack of internet. For the high price we paid (compared to other rates over the past twenty five years in Boothbay Harbor), we expected a bit more.

This is a wonderful area on the rocky Maine coast, with its craggy shoreline & evergreen trees populated by many islands, lighthouses, and lobster pots! The cottage location has a community feel, if you wish to partake, though it is private with woods and ocean surrounding most sides. There is a lot to experience here between the ocean, nature, and the inviting Maine towns. The center of Boothbay Harbor is a five minute drive away; or, take a scenic 2 mile walk to town - sidewalk most of the way.

Other Activities: Boating to islands managed by Land Trust or Maine Island Trail Assoc.; golf:18 & mini
