A Vacation Value For This Prime Location.

You can also head to Grimes cove for a refreshing swim and collect shells and sea glass. Simply a favorite spot for both residents and visitors of the area. This cottage, just outside the quaint Village of East Boothbay, has four bedrooms, each with an ocean view. Besides having the best view, it is clean, well maintained, and comfortably decorated.

What sets this cottage aside is that it has been completely updated. A custom built kitchen with all new appliances and cabinets is stocked for all your cooking needs. A newly renovated bathroom includes all your basics including towel sets, soap, tissues and more. All beds with high quality mattress sets and linens included.

Have your morning tea, coffee or afternoon refreshments relaxing in a porch rocking chair, yard-side Adirondack chair, or on the rocks at the waters edge. Any of these will give you a front row seat to the lobster men hauling their catch of the day, sailing windjammers, seals, lighthouses, islands, sea ducks and the most spectacular sunsets. You will be in awe.

View all the ocean activity from the porch during breakfast, lunch and dinner. On a clear night watch for shooting stars or find all the constellations with help from the L.L. Bean telescope. From the ocean front property you can picnic, fish, swim, launch a kayak or canoe, snorkel or find shells, driftwood, snails, crabs, starfish, little creatures and sometimes treasure in the seaweed and tide-pools.

About Kathy

We are from Massachusetts and our grandparents purchased this cottage in honor of their son who served in World War II as a pilot. Our family summer vacations have been spent here for many years and we look forward to many more.

We painted the front of the cottage with Red, White and Blue colors to honor our men and women who serve our country with respect and those who have before them. We planted yellow flowers in our flower boxes to represent our hope of their safe return home.

Why Kathy chose Boothbay Harbor Area

Many memories have been made here during vacations, family reunions, honeymoons and weekend getaways. We welcome you to be our guests and make your own memories to share with family and friends. You are sure to make a few if you stay here. Come be our guest and experience the comfort of 'Best View in ME' located on Ocean Point Maine.

What makes this cottage unique

Ocean Point is one of the most beautiful places in Maine. Our place is unique because we own ocean property which gives us access to use small crafts, go swimming, fishing, snorkeling and we can explore the tide-pools and shoreline just steps from our door. Our cottage also sits on a hilltop that faces southwest and allows us to watch the ocean activity, sea life and sunsets that are directly in front of the cottage.

We have had many Lobster feasts on the porch with friends and family. Those who don't make it down to the rocks for the evening sunset can stay right where they are on the porch and still have a view of the spectacular colors that wash over the sky. From our place you can see two lighthouses that light up at night and listen to the fog horn blow. Many nights of deep sleep can be had by all with the sounds of the waves and the smell of the ocean air. Come and experience it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful cottage with such a great view. The weather couldn't have been better. We hope to come back next year.

This is a well maintained charming cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This is a well maintained older cottage with up-to-date amenities. The location and view were just as described, right on Ocean Point and with a wonderful sunset view.

The property is well managed and the property manager makes himself very available to answer any questions.

Since we come to Maine for a restful get away, we use our time walking the coast, getting lobster from a local pound and spending lots of time sitting on the porch reading and enjoying the view.

I would gladly recommend this property to friends.

Owner's Response: Best View In ME, in Ocean Point Maine, is the best place for vacation and we are so delighted to have you back again for the 2015 season. Your stay for another two weeks will definitely give you the rest and relaxation you'll need after 2014. Especially if you had a winter like we did in the North East. For two weeks in April I was at Best View In ME watching the sunsets from the porch and they were breathtaking! The spectrum of colors were orange, scarlet red, saffron, violet, pink and blue hues which were glistening and shimmering on the ocean surface. I was in awe. Walking along the coastline is such a treasured experience. My spirit was refreshed after listening to the birds chirping, the ducks calling, the ocean splashing all the while breathing in the crisp, clean, fresh sea air. The flowers are just coming up and will soon be in full bloom. Though Spring time is beautiful, every season has a special treat here in Ocean Point, Maine. We look forward to having you back for more Maine lobsters, enjoyable walks on the coast, watching the sunsets and relaxing on the porch with a really good book. Thank you so much for your kind review of Best View In ME and of our property manager David Foster. He is really wonderful and we really appreciate his attention and care to all of our guests. We look forward to your return visit this year and every year after. Sincerely Kate ~ Owner

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very a well maintained piece of history. It has been very nicely updated. Every bedroom had a view of the ocean and it was wonderful to be lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves. We enjoyed the shore and searched for shells and sea glass treasures in the rocks and sand. A bonus was watching the lobster boat checking traps and listening to the loons call. David was pleasant and prompt in maintaining contact throughout from inquiries to booking and greeting us upon arrival.

We appreciate your review about your vacation at Best View in ME on Ocean Point and what made your visit special.

Best View in ME

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at the Best View in ME this fall. My family and I felt that we were in our home away from home with the best view overlooking the ocean. My children loved the fishing near by while my husband and I enjoyed the evenings sitting with our wine watching the sun go down. Most relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: Fishing is one of the highlights of visiting Maine, especially if you are just experiencing it for the first time. My boys have been fishing here for years and they always catch something to filet and cook on the grill. We are so glad to hear that your children had the chance to fish here too. Thank you Peggy for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay at Best View. We look forward to having you and your family back for another visit to Maine. Sincerely, Kate ~ Owner

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this vacation house two summers in a row, we loved it so much. It was plenty big enough for my husband and two daughters, and the following year we brought our niece with us as well! The location is ideal, on one of the most beautiful coastal roads in Maine. We loved walking to the small beach, putting our kayak in across the street, playing ping-pong at the recreation center, using the playground, and taking just a short drive into Boothbay Harbor to go to great restaurants and shops. It is also very close drive to the Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens, where my girls enjoyed the annual fairy festival the first weekend in August, both years!

The view of the ocean from this cottage is breathtaking, especially the sunsets!

The cottage was immaculate, and the owner thought of every detail in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms, to make our stay very comfortable. We especially liked that we didn't have to bring our own linens like many other rentals, and it had great Cable TV to watch movies, sports, etc! The cottage is so tasteful and beautiful, it truly added to the enjoyment of our stay in Maine. There were many brochures and maps available for us about area attractions, and because the cottage has wi-fi, it was easy to access our laptop as well to help us navigate the area. We enjoyed going to two great Maine state beaches while staying at this cottage, both about a half hour away.

I highly recommend this treasure of a cottage to others, one the the best deals you'll find in Maine, considering the space and amenities for the price, which was worth every dime!

Best View in Maine Rental

  • 5 of 5

The best view in Maine sure lives up to its name! We spent most of our time on the screened in porch just to enjoy the view. The house was very well maintained and stocked with all the essential items needed. My family loves the rocky coast so it was really nice to be able to enjoy it right out in front of the house. Just a short drive to Boothbay Harbor and all of the really wonderful restaurants, our favorites included Ports of Italy ,Mine Oyster, McSeagulls and for a really nice lunch we really enjoyed the brewery ( great food, great people and excellent beer) and can't forget Wannawaff for the ice cream. We spent a beautiful day at nearby Reed State park.The grocery store is close. It was a great week. We would definitely recommend this house.

Owner's Response: We thought the name "Best View in ME" was appropriate because of the location and for the reasons you are able to sit on the porch or the rocks to view the ocean and activities. Thank you for being our guests and letting us know what you loved about the cottage and where the best places were that you visited. We agree that there are some great restaurants and that Reed State Park is a perfect day trip. We hope that you will return for another stay at Best View in order to explore new restaurants and areas of interest. There is nothing like the coast of Maine. It's the way life should be! Sincerely, Kate Owner
