About the property

Escape to this peaceful sanctuary

This darling cottage was a newly-weds dream built by our own Grandy and Grandma with the help of their builder relatives. Now freshly renovated throughout, step into the special charm of its original pine paneling and great-Grandma’s braided rugs. Relax in the ambiance of the woods in front of a crackling evening fire; swim or catch tiny crabs in the seaweed at sandy Light House beach a mile away; or enjoy bustling Boothbay Harbor with its many tourist attractions and water activities within 5 miles. The queen bedroom and bunk bedroom are perfect for a young family of 4 or a romantic get-away for 2. Two small hide-a-beds in the living room allow 2 more to be squeezed in. Pet friendly.

A quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Gma & Grandy's cottage and it continues to be our favorite vacation spot. It is clean, quiet, with everything we needed for a week long stay. The beach is a short drive away and Boothbay Harbor a slightly longer drive.

A very comfortable, clean and relaxing to quiet cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage on Southport Island, 10 minutes south of Boothbay Harbor, is delightful. The maintenance man Jeff always checks in to make sure there's nothing needed and keeps in touch in case you run out of anything. The water is filtered through a fantastic aquasana filter even though the tap water tastes delicious to start with. The bed in the master bedroom is marvelous and affords a very good night sleep. The kitchen is very well-equipped with a large new refrigerator. There are wonderful walking roads and local eateries. I recommend this highly!

Neat, clean and very restful in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was neat and clean. We loved it and we look forward to returning again next year. The property and the amenities were as described. The area is beautiful and Southport Island is away from the busyness of Boothbay Harbor but is also only minutes away. I certainly have and will again recommend this place to friends and relatives. Robinson's Wharf is a great restaurant for lobster and steak and it is where we traditionally have our first night dinner. It is on the island and only minutes away from the cabin. Mama D's is our favorite place for lunch and is located on Union St. in Boothbay Harbor. Another great restaurant is Brown's Wharf in Boothbay Harbor where you can dine on the deck if the weather is appropriate. The Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit.

Another fabulous summer vacation here!

  • 5 of 5

Ellen and Craig, thank you once again for sharing your lovely Southport cottage with us. We love the comforts of the cottage, as well as the beautiful setting on Southport Island. It was nice to see Jeff again this year, and we feel very fortunate to be so well looked after.

Hope to stay again next August!

P.S. We visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden for the first time this year and it was spectacular!

Perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage--so woodsy and cozy, a perfect getaway. We loved the quiet and the forest, but also the easy access to the general store and Cozy Harbor. We also really enjoyed the classic knotty pine feel, and the modern touches (like a washing machine). The cottage is really well-maintained, and we had everything we needed. We'd go back in a heartbeat!
