3 Bedroom Classic Maine Cottage, Close To Beach
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Cottage was in a very quiet area on a back road, just barely a block from Hendricks Head beach.

  • 5 of 5

Close enough to town, but faraway enough to be peaceful, quiet and relaxing.

Perfect for families with kids- the 12 and 10 yr olds with us spent nearly every waking hour beach combing and climbing the rocks at the beach. @peace&quiet4adults!

The cottage was easy to keep clean, well equipped and tucked back off the road.

The high point for me was seeing all the Osprey nests and hearing the song of a Swainson's thrush each morning and evening. Oh, and the lobsters we ate every single day- fabulous. Fortunately, none of the 3 kids we brought liked seafood--chicken strips are cheaper than lobster.

The one cool, rainy day we had was spent at the Southport Island library and Boothbay Harbor. We also really enjoyed the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.

There is a Southport Association that has formed to preserve some island properties and develop them for educational and historical purposes. Bravo!

Our hosts were very gracious and if you stay here, be sure to visit Oliver's restaurant.

Thanks, Susan, for the restful week that my sister and I were hoping for.

Typical Maine cottage!

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the location - close to the beach and Southport store. Well equipped and wonderful fireplace for cool fall evenings. Hope to return again.

Great summer cottage, close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage surrounded by pine trees . You feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle and busel. Wild blueberry bushes surround the cottage and you can pick away if you are there at the right time of year. Only a short 3 minute walk to the a great beach. Cottage itself has a lot of charm, all the amenities and many sleeping options with a seperate sleeping cottage just outside the main cabin. Morning walks to the Southport general store make you feel like you are back in the 60's. Boothbay harbor is just close enough for some shopping and great restaurants. This place is a hidden jem, shhh don't tell anyone!!!

Wonderful cottage near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The cottage is well equipped and our teenage boys loved the loft sleeping space. It is a 5min walk to the beach which we explored every day. We brought our dog and she loved the dog friendly beach. There is also a small walking trail near the beach which we explored. The owners were at their own cottage across the road when we were there and were very helpful when the power went out briefly during a rain storm. Boothbay Harbor is worth a visit and this cottage made our stay even more enjoyable!
