Southport House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 6

In the most beautiful location in the Region, this Juniper Point cottage offers great privacy and a nearby dock, tennis courts, and easy access to Boothbay Harbor. Perched at the ocean entrance to Maine's famous boating waterway, Townsend Gut, this cottage offers stunning views from inside a wonderful great room (living and dining room with lots of space for games, puzzles, reading,etc.), decks and porches on three sides and comfortable bedrooms.

First floor provides two bedrooms (one queen and one full bed), one full and one half bath. The second floor loft has a queen and two single beds and a three quarters bath with tub.

From $1100 to $2300 per week with specials in the early (May and June) and late (September and October) season.

Community House with 4 red clay tennis courts and family activities is 400 yards up a quiet road. Parking for two cars. Friendly, welcoming place with many attractions in the region. Our family has enjoyed this magical place with osprey overhead, fishing boats in front, and the great natural beauty of Maine's most beautiful place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved our week here. It was only too short....Cliff House is really a transporting place."

This was an email from first-time visitors at the end of August 2006 who are eager to return next year. These comments are typical of our guests and we will be happy to provide their references, as we are eager to get additional comments now that we have opened this guestbook.

Our stay at Cliff House was too short! What a BEAUTIFUL, private location. We woke every morning and had our coffee watching the lobster boats go by on the wrap around porch - with one of the most amazing views in all of Maine! The kids loved the loft - and we walked to town every day - a stunning view around every corner. Can't wait to come back!!!!

Exceptional views from great room

  • 5 of 5

Although, this cottage is old, it is well maintained, plus all the appliances are up to date. The view from the great room and the deck gives you close access to the lobster men pulling their lobster traps each day, plus other working boats in the bay. Very quiet enjoyable week for a relaxing vacation.

Memorable Week !

  • 5 of 5

Hello Rick and Kit,

My re entry after a wonderful week @ Cliff House has been a transitioning one ! The view w/ my coffee this morning was no where near as inspiring as it was last week ! Where is the magestic view of Squirrel and Mouse Island w/the osprey and the lobster boats ?

Needless to say, I loved staying @ your inviting, timeless cottage last week ! Your views are unsurpassed and the tranquility is transforming. Such a sensory experience ! It reminded me of the days we spent on Capitol Island as kids in the 50's ! And the loft brought back memories, great to have a bathroom up there ! We also loved seeing your family photos and the wine was a very nice welcome, thank you!

I celebrated my 60th birthday w/ family and friends throughout the week. All were awestruck and no one wanted to leave ! This is from a group of seasoned worldwide travelers and fellow renters of mountain retreats and seaside homes ! My daughter even stayed an extra day before heading back to NYC.

The Cliff House location is truly representative of "God's country." I hope to get back there some day! Thank you for offering the opportunity to enjoy it !

Cliff House is Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Cliff House was just the best. Thank you for the warm welcome and the very nice bottle of wine. It was a very friendlyl way to begin our vacation, and what a vacation! We had a great time! Cliff House is a WONDERFUL place! It is so comfortable and relaxing, and the view! WOW!

It was the first time both of us to spent more than a day in the Boothbay area and it was well worth it. We loved the town and even more so we loved Cliff House! Every day was a decision, should we stay and enjoy the view, or go off and do some exploring. We did both.

My cousin moved to town last summer, so we had someone to give us some guidance. Actually we saw quite a lot. But I think our most wonderful time was just enjoying the Cliff house. We have both been going full tilt taking care of our moms. So it was good to get away on our own. It really recharged our batteries.The biggest problem we had was getting ready to go home. I'm sure you know the feeling. Looking forward to next year! Thanks Rick and Kit

Beautiful Ocean-View Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Cliff House is a very comfortable, well-equipped cottage with a gorgeous ocean view. While drinking our morning coffee, we greatly enjoyed watching the "resident" ducks and the lobster men checking their traps. The cottage's huge picture window provides delightful sights at all times of day. Nearby attractions include the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden (gorgeous), Robinson's Wharf, and the Maine State Aquarium. Try Bridge Street Cafe (Boothbay Harbor) for a wonderful lunch or breakfast.

Thank you for an amazingl...

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for an amazingly wonderful week at Cliff House! I have been to Boothbay Harbor many, many times over several years and the views from your cottage, perched on a cliff, surrounded by and so close to the water, is one of the best if not the very best. Sitting on your wonderful deck, watching the beauty of nature, enjoying the pine scented ocean breezes, and seeing all the sailboats and lobstermen pass so close provided such a relaxing, renewing vacation. Your cottage had everything anyone might need.
