Serenity and Peace Abound!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, granddaughter and I had a wonderful stay at this log cabin. It was absolutely immaculate and had every item one could think of to make our stay enjoyable. Although the pictures are accurate, they do not fully show the charm of this artistically decorated vacation home. Although we did some activities in the area our favorite was sitting on the front porch soaking in the peace while watching two families of ducks, seagulls, swiftly diving terns. a kingfisher and a variety of boats on the Damariscotta.

Peter was a gracious host, letting us know about the history of the cabin and answering any questions that we had.

As we drove away to come home we asked ourselves if there were any possible negative things about our stay and the only one we could think of was that it was so hard to leave!

Loved everything about this gem!

  • 5 of 5

I won't be able to say it enough, but this place is just the best! It's five minutes away from everything fun about Boothbay Harbor, but every bit as private and quiet, a pristine property, actually, as you could ever hope for. And gorgeous property and adorable cabin aside, the owner is one of the nicest people we have met in a long time. He is warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the area and its strengths and weaknesses! We saw deer, seals, an eagle, an osprey, heron and two dolphins or porpoises... we don't know which. We felt relaxed and at home there. I truly cannot wait to visit again.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here last September. It was amazing. The house was beautiful and just like the pictures. We had access right by the cabin to go kayaking. Pete, the owner, was the best. He gave us the full history of the home and was a wealth of information. He is also an excellent musician. We plan on coming back soon to stay in this lovely cabin again....

Having spent all of my childhood summers in Boothbay Harbor, Maine in a rustic log cabin also built in the 1920s, my idea of the PERFECT Maine visit was absolutely exceeded and changed forever! My wife and I fell head over heels for this romantically situated rustic and charming oasis. The owner, Peter, is a new wonderful friend and we're already planning our return next year. If you are a wood burning fireplace aficionado like me, you are in for a treat! Every amenity is provided, individual heat radiators in the bedrooms and bathroom, FIRE WOOD, a fully stocked large kitchen and the outside front porch view that will mesmerize you to complete serenity. There's even a gorgeous sitting area a few yards from the cabin with Adirondack style seating and a fire pit to enjoy beautiful sunsets over the bay. There is so much to explore in the area, but we found ourselves more and more wanting to just stay in and savor every moment of this beautiful property. I've revisited the Boothbay region dozens of times over the last 20 years, and even rented near my old cabin from my childhood. This experience was, hands down, my absolute favorite Maine vacation in my life thus far. Put this beautiful cabin visit on your bucket list!

We can't wait to return.

The Perfect Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and location are perfect! We brought our kayak's and would go out on the Damariscotta River just about every day exploring an island in the distance or going along river with the lobster boats and seal's. We enjoyed several hiking trails near by and also did some mountain biking We also had a perfect view of the "4th of July" fireworks right from the docks of Boothbay Harbor which also had some very nice shops. It really was one of our best family vacations and Peter was the perfect host. You just don't get tired of the view sitting on the front porch with the different boats on the river. We're definitely planning to come back some time soon.

Wonderful Maine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a perfect place to stay for our week in Maine. The setting could not be more peaceful and beautiful. The cabin is in an excellent place to explore coastal Maine, up into the Camden hills, and south into Freeport. Peter was the perfect host, keeping our wood pile stocked for the cool evenings we had in mid September. Definitely a place we would come back to!
