Welcome to SeaGlass Cottage in East Boothbay! Sitting right by the edge of Linekin Bay, at SeaGlass you will be surrounded by stunning beauty and immersed in nature. It is not unusual to see seals, osprey and eagles. You are so close to the water, it feels like being on a boat, and the western exposure provides you with absolutely breathtaking sunsets.
There is a great 200' long deep-water dock with a large sundeck and sitting area that has a swim ladder, and can accommodate anything from a kayak to a 28 foot boat. At low tide there is a large private rocky oceanfront area (this area is underwater at high tide so please don't think white sandy beach), that is great for beach combing, digging for clams or catching crabs. Bring your water shoes!
The cottage itself loaded with charm and filled with nooks and crannies. It features an open floor plan with high pitched exposed beam ceilings, and is covered in wainscotting. SeaGlass was professionally decorated and features high quality linens, including down bedding and soft towels. There is also fast high speed internet, WIFI and a 32' HD TV.
The main bedroom, on the second floor, is open to the first floor and is accessed by a small spiral staircase. It has beautiful pumpkin pine floors, a high pitched ceiling and great water views. The second bedroom is accessed by a ladder and is a small sleeping loft. It has a queen bed and two small dressers. There is also a screened-in porch which provides another cozy spot to read a book or surf the web.
We accept boats up to 28' at the dock. The water is approximately 4' deep at the very lowest low tide and about 5' at a typical low tide. There is trailer parking for a small fee ($25-$50 weekly) near the boat launch which is about 1 mile from the cottage.
This location provides an incredibly peaceful retreat to get away from it all and relax, surrounded by some of the most beautiful views anywhere. But, if you are looking for more action, it is only 4 miles to Boothbay Harbor, which is home to many fine dining and casual restaurants, shops and galleries. It is only 3 miles to the popular Ocean Point where you can relax on the rocks and take in the breathtaking views. One of the areas most scenic hiking trails, The Linekin Preserve, is only 2/10ths of a mile away. Also nearby is the Boothbay Country Club, the Maine Botanical Gardens, and numerous boat excursions including whale watches, schooners tours and trips to Monhegan Island and Ram Island Light House. It is also a great home base for daytrips, with much of the mid-coast's favorite attractions within an hour's drive.
