Every room has a view, including newly built large sunroom with two couches and additional access to deck. Two bedrooms, maximum occupancy 4 people.

About Kathy and Bob

No matter where we travel in the world, we always look forward to returning to our little house on the river. Peaceful, scenic and minutes away from great fishing, bird watching or just cruising the backwaters of coastal Maine, this house is truly a sanctuary from the outside world.

Kathy and Bob purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy and Bob chose Boothbay Harbor Area

Waterfront property, at least with a decent view and not miles and miles from civilization is something not easily found in Maine. We fell in love with Cowseagan Narrows the moment we saw it. Just coming down the drive will be enough to make you fall in love with it, too.

What makes this house unique

Magnificent views, secluded setting off lightly travelled road and moments to shopping and dining. Ultra convenient by boat or car to Boothbay Harbor.

We loved our stay. The home had everything we expected and more. The river was constantly changing

It's flow pattern. We didn't swim there because the river flows fast

We enjoyed our stay in the house on the river. It was close enough to travel the mid coast, yet private enough to feel like you were miles away from anyone. The house was laid out nicely and super clean. Kathy left us some welcoming treats, and everything we needed was there. Morning coffee and the deck and evening cocktails out there was wonderful. The whole house fan worked well to keep the house cool. We would stay again.

Beautiful week away

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this gorgeous home. The open layout was perfect for our 1 year old. The second bedroom was able to fit her pack and play perfectly as well. The deck is huge and we loved grilling, eating breakfast outside, and enjoying all the views of the river! We took a lot of day trips around Maine and it was so relaxing to come back to this house at the end of each day. Such an amazing week away!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our teenager, and I stayed here October 17-21st and had a really nice time. Rustic area, really great views, close to parks to go hiking in as well as the coast and restaurants. The fall colors were great. Lobster fisherman are right out in front of the home on the bay and it was neat to see them fish. I would stay here again. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words... you really lucked out this year with the foliage. Best it's been in years and the view from the deck onto that panorama was really spectacular. Thanks again!

Prudence Island, RI

Mostly good

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is situated on the banks of the Sheepscot River at the Cowsweagen Narrows where the current runs very quickly at all but slack water between tides. Care must be taken, but it is lovely and fascinating. The site gives the feeling of privacy and is just beside and below the bridge to Westport Island. Having spent the majority of our life on or adjacent to the ocean, we felt close to home.

The cottage is immaculate and comfortable and the kitchen is fine. Our only problem was that six out of seven of the recessed light fixtures had burned out bulbs and lamps are at a premium, so reading after dark was difficult to say the least. Consequently we found it uncomfortable to be there after dark and left one day early. We hope the bulbs will be replaced prior to the arrival of subsequent visitors.

The deck is a fine place for morning coffee or afternoon Happy Hour.

The location is also ideal for visiting our long time friends in Wiscasset and on Westport Island.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words about your stay at our vacation home. We make sure everyone arrives to a spotless house, so it's nice to know you noticed. However, we're confused about the lights. When we checked them, only one had burned out. One has been intentionally left off, as it reflects on the TV and is annoying for people sitting on the couch. All told, there are 7 recessed lights, two track lights, one ceiling lamp, one floor lamp and one table lamp, all of which were completely operational, not to mention ceiling lights and lamps in all bedrooms and out in the sunroom. Additionally, there were and are backup bulbs for all fixtures in the closet in the kitchen. People have loved the fact that the house is private and quiet (as you also point out), but no one has ever mentioned being too uncomfortable to stay there after dark.
