Southport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Yellow House on Bayberry Lane

Location: Southport Island, Boothbay Harbor Region Mid-Coast and Islands, Maine, 3-hours north of Boston Mass and 1.25 hours north of Portland International Airport.

Accommodations: The “Yellow Cottage” sleeps 7, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Available mid-May through September.

The Yellow Cottage is a one-level, airy and light filled space. It has a large living room with a red Franklin stove and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, and spacious screened porch that sits dramatically on boulders at the ocean’s edge. Both the master bedroom, with king bed and adjoining bathroom, and another bedroom with queen bed have ocean views. There is a third bedroom with 3 twin beds and a full bath accessed via the hallway.

With the Rachel Carlson Sanctuary on one side and the Ocean on the other, this Property only has two homes on it, so it provides privacy and quiet. The property is situated on a private point with the Ocean literally 75 feet away.

The town of Newagen, with a small public library, is a half-mile away. The Newagen Inn, with tennis courts, swimming pool and restaurant, is within 1 mile. The Island Store, a small charming general store, is about 2 miles away. Robinson’s Wharf, for the best fresh caught lobsters around, is less than 2 miles from the house.

Nearby Boothbay Harbor has charming shops, great restaurants and a new 18-hole golf course. There is easy access to boat rentals in Boothbay or at Southport’s Boothbay Region Boatyard.

Do you need more room? There is another house on the property that is available for rent. Please call for more information.

Stunning Views from a Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow Cottage was exactly what we were looking for - a beautiful location with sweeping views over the water while being rustically affordable. The house itself is very cozy and cute and felt larger than it looked in photos. The big living/dining room is great for congregating as a group! You won't find all the bells and whistles of fancier homes and inns in the area, like boutique shampoos or giant fluffy towels, but you won't pay for them either. The bathrooms are older/outdated but serviceable - they were the only thing we felt could use minor upgrades. But who cares about older bathrooms with these views?! We spent relaxing mornings and evenings sipping coffee then wine on the screened porch and walked out on the rocks to dip our toes in the brisk ocean water in the afternoons. Our stay at the Yellow Cottage was a heavenly and relaxing vacation that didn't break the bank!
