Overview

Boothbay Harbor Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

On the Water 2BR 1BA Newly Built Cottage with Screened Porch

This cottage is on a small bluff overlooking the water and surrounding marshes. It is located on a secluded peninsula just 5 miles from Bath, Me.

There is a hiking trail along water's edge and also kayaks and a canoe to rent to explore the waterways.

The cottage has wood beamed ceilings and pine floors. There is a good size porch from which you can enjoy sunset views over the water.

There is a queen size bed in one bedroom and two twin size beds in the other. The couch in the living room converts to a bed for additional sleeping accommodations.

For those who desire to stay 'plugged in' we offer Satellite TV and Wireless Internet.

The kitchen is complete with full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster and coffee pot not to mention all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils you will need. If you enjoy to BBQ there is a grill just outside the front door. For lobster lovers we have a large pot available for you to cook them fresh in your cottage.

The Midcoast area of Maine is known for its miles of white sandy beaches and Lobster wharfs where you can enjoy their famous lobster dinners on the dock as you watch the lobstermen bringing in their catch for the day. What makes the midcoast so appealing is the fact that you get to enjoy all this without the crowds. You will love the slower pace of life and the pristine beauty of this untouched area.

About Ruth Francis

We, Sam and Ruth Francis, are the owners and hosts of eight rental properties in Georgetown, Maine. We have four wonderful grown sons and are proud grandparents. We worked for years to finish our timber frame dream home at the tip of the peninsula. We now enjoy our role as pastors to a growing church in Bath, Maine.

Ruth Francis purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Ruth Francis chose Boothbay Harbor Area

We purchased this unique fifty acre property with its half mile long peninsula over thirty years ago. Since then we have lived here and operated a traditional wooden boat shop. Over the years we have built six charming cottages, as well as, converted a Sailor's Loft to a rental with breathtaking, panoramic views. We also, offer the home that we first built and lived in to renters, with it's ideal location at the tip of the peninsula with deep water frontage and a private dock. We have added other touches to our property with a garden house, ten slip boat dock, a hiking trail and clearings for fishing and picnics.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are situated to allow privacy but also to maintain the quality of the open, natural spaces. Each cottage overlooks the marsh and adjacent Back River which flows off the mighty Kennebec and Nature Conservancy land beyond.

Perfect and updated

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Sagadahoc many times and always love it. This year the furniture is updated and really made a difference. We enjoyed an amazing week. We rented kayaks onsite and went out on the Back River almost daily, a great way to see the area. Back River Bend is perfectly situated for beaches, hiking, biking, and great eating adventures. Booked for 2017...❤️

Very nice cottage with great views of the river

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cozy, clean, and well maintained. The screened porch overlooking the river is a big plus. It's suitable for a short stay or a long-term vacation rental. We definitely recommend it.

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage, excellent location, super owners. There is so much to see and do in this area, you could truly spend your entire sightseeing vacation in this location. The cottage had plenty of room for our family, and very clean. The owners were very helpful and gave excellent information for sightseeing tips.

Peace and beauty

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property. The cabin was beautiful, and the screened porch was heaven morning coffee, afternoon relaxation, or evening drinks. If there weren't so many things to do within short driving distance, We could have spent the whole time on that porch.

We enjoyed the privacy, the views, and the access to the water with our rented canoes.

Can't wait to go back!
