About the property

1 queen bedroom & 1 with 2 twins, 1full bathroom, 1 half bath, max of 4 adults

Harbor Sunset Cottage is a new well-appointed 2 bedroom 1½ bath home with 2 decks facing direct waterfront & fabulous sunsets. You are only a minute's walk to the famous 'Footbridge' that crosses over the inner harbor in to town where you can buy a cup of fresh brewed coffee & the morning paper. If you prefer you can relax on the front porch swing with your own morning coffee to watch the sun rise up & over the harbor.

Boothbay Harbor is a real working waterfront, and you can watch it all without having to leave the comforts of this cozy cottage – lobster boats motoring out at dawn's early light & returning with the afternoon breeze, tour boats filled with travelers excited to see whales, seals and perhaps Puffins & pleasure crafts of all sizes (you never know who might be sailing in on that 100' yacht) – there's even islands – all right right in front of you.

Harbor Sunset Cottage shares the 'open' 1 acre waterfront property with the nationally known Lobster Dock Restaurant & Channel Marina (Food Network, Coastal Living Magazine & Port ‘O Call). This recently built rental offers granite kitchen counters, new appliances, dishes, glassware, washer/dryer, linens, cleaning supplies, etc. Don't want to cook while on vacation? Place an order at The Lobster Dock & have your food delivered to your private deck or get priority seating if you prefer to dine there. The cottage also has a slip at the marina for up to a 20' boat. You can launch it on-site or a few hundred yards away at the town launch. Have a canoe or kayak? Bring that along as well!

Harbor Sunset Cottage is the ideal rental if you want to be in the heart of the harbor where you have a front row seat to the best view of downtown and have a short walk to all the quaint shops, post office, library, boat tours & more!

Enjoy your front row view of the sun setting over the harbor & downtown as you reminisce about what you did today and make plans for what you will do tomorrow.

Please note: rates are as listed. Our cottage is a 2-level, 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath waterfront home located within walking distance to all of the harbor's main activities, sites, shops, restaurants & more.

The nationally known Maine Botanical Gardens: Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, on Barters Island Road in Boothbay, invites you to visit and watch our gardens grow. Even in winter, there are sights to see and trails to walk or snowshoe. The gardens are full of interesting textures, shapes, and colors. Then, come spring, revel in the brilliant color and masterful stonework in the spectacular Central Gardens, Rhododendron & Perennial Garden, Shoreland Garden of Native Plants, and Hillside Garden. Walk groomed trails along the shore and on ledge-lined paths on our 248-acre waterfront landscape. Savor the peace you'll find amidst natural woods, wildflowers and ferns, and see outdoor sculpture displayed in perfect settings. Stop by the spacious Visitor Center where we offer wonderful learning opportunities and special events (see below). Please come to the Garden and watch Maine's first botanical garden flourish!

Boothbay Region Land Trust and Opera House: The Boothbay region is known for its spectacular natural beauty, rocky shores, coastal islands, and river corridors. Since 1980, the Boothbay Region Land Trust has conserved the beauty of the Boothbay region by protecting land for the benefit and enjoyment of the residents and visitors in the Boothbay region.

'The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor provides a performance, exhibition and activity center for the creative life of the region. It combines the inspiration and ambiance of a carefully restored historical building with the advantages of a well-designed, modern multi-use facility.

Serving a wide range of arts and civic organizations, it strives to enliven and enrich the region on a year-round basis, and grow along with the needs and vision of the community.'

Boothbay Harbor in Boothbay Harbor, Maine is considered by many world travelers to be one of the most beautiful harbors in the world and it has become a popular destination for some of the world's largest yachts. Several seasonal festivals are scheduled each year, including the Fishermen's Festival weekend in late April, Boothbay in Bloom in early June, the fast and furious lobster boat races held mid-June, the famous two-day Windjammer Days the end of June (which typically brings in several schooners and a Navy ship or two), Fourth of July fireworks over the harbor, and live concerts on the Library lawn each Thursday evening during the summer. Several craft fairs and art shows are held throughout the warm weather season. If you visit during the winter, you will enjoy shopping in your PJs mid-November during the Early Bird Sale, the Harbor Lights Festival in early December, along with the Festival of Trees and various holiday craft fairs.

Other Activities: Swimming off the dock, kayaking around the harbor, hiking & Geocaching land trust preserves
