Come relax on this gorgeous slice of unspoiled Maine coast! This adorable family cabin has been a get-away for generations of sailors. It sits 30 ft from the water on a quiet, private point of land with multiple rocky beaches. There is a deep water dock, prefect for fishing, sun bathing or a daring plunge, which may occasional be used by the family to access moored boats.Take a rest in the hammock as you look out over undeveloped Farnham Cove, or settle down in the sun for a peaceful book or a bird watch while the kids explore. There are many nearby trails that are part of Boothbay Land Trust, or drive 10 minutes to be in downtown Boothbay Harbor with fine restaurants and shopping, check out the great aquarium or the amazing Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. Later watch a perfect sunset as you roast marshmallows in our beautiful stone fireplace. The cabin interior is rustic, wood paneled with high, open rafters and an open living/dining space. We have a deck overlooking the cove, covered porch, hammock, grill, laundry line (and laundromat 7 min. away in town), WIFI, TV, music, and lots of fun games. Comfortable beds have quality cotton sheets and duvets with two bedrooms, one with 2 twins and a bunk bed, the other with a queen, and a double futon in the open living area for overflow. The cabin is kept very clean and is a low allergen environment (sorry no pets or smoking). There is one newly renovated bathroom with a cheery red floor, pedestal sink, and new shower. The funky kitchen has new aqua boomerang counter tops and 50's vintage tableware, and everything necessary to cook a delicious meal (even lobster), which you will want to do since the evenings are so beautiful here! The cabin is not fancy, but it is divine.
If you are looking for a secluded, private place, yet within minutes of other attractions this is the place for you. This clean, rustic cabin is located on the end of a point, surrounded by a peaceful cove. It has a deck with comfortable wood adirondack chairs from which you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the tide come in and out, the sailboats, the cormorants, the seagulls and occasionally the seals! There is a rocky, mossy area that can be explored when the tide is out. We rented a kayak from Tidal Transit in Boothbay Harbor and were able to enjoy taking it out from the dock right at the cabin. If you rent for at least three days, they will deliver and pick up the kayak with all equipment. If you enjoy walking, there are trails to be explored within walking distance of the cabin. Boothbay Harbor is only about a ten minute drive and affords shopping, great ice cream and great performances at the Boothbay Opera House. For an inexpensive lobster experience, Hannaford's will steam lobsters for you and you can take them back to the cabin and enjoy at the picnic table on the deck at the cabin. The cabin is rustic and in a beautiful natural environment and sometimes nature makes it way inside, so don't expect a sterile environment. The cabin is kept clean and well stocked. If you are looking for a Maine get away at a true cabin in an unbeatable location, you can't go wrong here.
If you are looking for a five star resort you are out of luck. But if you want a quiet place tucked back in the woods with a rustic charm this is the place to go. Every morning we watched the lobster boats picking and setting their pots. My grandson was on top of the world fishing off the dock when the Mackerel would roll in. The fireplace was cozy in the cool evenings. I would definitely recommend for family unwind time.
After 10 days, I can say what I said the day we arrived, "This is just what we wanted." On calm water, quiet and unseen neighbors, modern conveniences (there is a wall heater in the bathroom to take off the morning chill), and a very comfortable bed. You are close enough to "civilization" that you can visit the Botanical Gardens and ride a vintage steam train in Alna. There is also a lovely farmers' market on Thursdays. I am home now and can't find my husband. Is he still there? Reading in the hammock?
My boyfriend and I had a MOST relaxed stay at Ken & Amy's cabin. They were helpful and accommodating, the cabin was clean and the kitchen was well equipped (this is coming from an active cook). There was even bioluminescence in the bay at night! Seals, rolling waves, what else do you need? We came back from vacation feeling well rested, not an easy undertaking.
This is an annual pilgrimage for myself and two friends, this having been our third year to the cabin. We love this idyllic spot, as it is away from everything citified yet only ten minutes or so to the heart of Boothbay. From this cabin, we can explore the entire Mid-Coast region of Maine. If we could own it, we would.
The cottage is rustic but eminently comfortable. This is the first year we used the fireplace but what a wonderful experience it was to spend the day in the cabin reading in front of the toasty fire while Maine weather raged around us.
The sunsets are spectacular and it is mostly very quiet in the area.
Overall, a beautiful place that is literally at the end of the road. We will be coming back for years.
Great place to relax and unwind. The view is awesome and sometimes the seal comes out to play in the cove. You can swim or kayak from the dock and the cabin is rustic but comfortable. Great for the adventurous or a romantic stay.
The Boothbay Harbor Region is the perfect Coastal Maine destination - rich in history, natural beauty and local color. The traditional occupations of lobstering, fishing, and shipbuilding, still the foundation of the community, give the area an authentic charm. The enduring personality and extraordinary beauty of the area have drawn vacationers here for over 100 years. The village streets are lined with cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques, and the harbors dotted with lobster boats, pleasure craft, and windjammers. You'll enjoy quiet coves, rocky shores, and island lighthouses, and the warmth and friendliness of the people who call this home.
