Cabin in the woods
This was our first visit to Maine and Boothbay Harbor. The location of the home was great: minutes away from Boothbay Harbor with boat tours, shops, and restaurants; and Coastal Botanical Gardens. This would be a great place to stay if you’re looking for a wooded setting but near things to do. Because it is so wooded (but right on the water!) not much sun came through and we were a bit chilly much of the time. The only place to get sun is down on the dock.
The furniture in living room could use an upgrade - it is outdated and uncomfortable.
Charming and Classic Maine cottage on the Bay
Very welcoming and comfortable - well appointed with all that a family could need to reconnect, relax or be active in a scenic location. Gorgeous views from all living spaces, including Master Bedroom . Beds were clean and comfy, A huge bonus was that property was dog-friendly - with extra items available if needed. Community location was fun to explore, both with and without our pup. Would love a return visit!
This is our 2nd year. It was just as wonderful. I loved all the personal touches (games, books, location information, dishes etc.) The location and the community are all so friendly, even the dogs after the meet and greet were great. Next year I may try my hand at tennis. But then again the screened-in porch was amazing so much I could stay all day. My husband brings the small Whaler and puts it tied up to the deck, the launch is minutes from the house. So easy. Thank you Barb for sharing your family home. Cathy
Great vacation spot
Even though the weather could have been better, we very much enjoyed our stay. House is very conveniently located to so many Boothbay area spots.
Great Cabin Stay
Nostalgia! This home will take you back to a easier time and lit your mind at ease. My parents, 2 golden retrievers and my husband and I stayed here and it kept us wanting the outdoors. It was a great location to keep you off the beaten bath, but close to everything you needed.
Perfect Cottage for a small family vacation
Location, Location, Location!! Loved looking out the windows watching all the boat traffic especially the lobstermen that were literally grabbing their pots at the end of the private dock. The house is Pet Friendly which is a plus. We took our 135lb rottweiler and he had plenty of room and loved laying on the dock. Boothbay has so much to offer. Can't wait to return in the future. I would recommend this to any family of 4 or smaller.
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 much 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; great ocean swimming
