Overview

Boothbay Harbor Area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6

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.

Quiet with beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

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.

Rustic, Quiet and a Vanishing/Unique Property

  • 5 of 5

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?

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Summertime magic.

  • 5 of 5

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 Getaway

  • 4 of 5

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.

Week vacation at Farnham Point Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin rental was awesome. We had a great view of the bay and was very relaxing. The cabin was everything + some, of what we expected from the listing. This cabin sets at the end of a penninsula, with quite a bit of room for the kids to explore. Our teenage children had a blast looking along the shoreline for ocean life and enjoyed fishing off the dock although the fish were not cooperating. The kids were able to see squid, lobsters, crabs, bald eagles and even saw a couple of otters?(per my 17 year old son). It was nice for the kids to see the differences in ocean life from fresh water life to the differences in tides. The cabin was perfect. It was original but yet modern in bathroom and kitchen facilities. The cleanest cabin I have ever seen and very nicely decorated. The kitchen had more gadgets than my own. It was nice not having to eat out. I would reccomend this cabin to anyone.

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.
