Overview

East Boothbay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The views from this custom designed cottage are some of the nicest you will find. We are situated just high enough to provide protection from the ocean, but close enough to hear the waves and surf at all times of the day. Being so close to the water, the feeling in the cottage is a lot like being on a large boat. Our cottage was redesigned and fully remodeled in 2011, including all new bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen. There is also a new deck that is perfect for relaxing and taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean. The cottage features two queen sized beds, one on each floor, with access to a bathroom on each floor as well. There is also a queen sized sleeper couch on the main level. Boothbay Harbor, with all it's charm, galleries, shopping and restuarants, is less than 10 minutes away, and Ocean point is right down the road. Our cottage is situated on a little known oceanfront drive in between. This area is one of the best kept secrets around and offers views and ocean walks as nice as you will find, but with far fewer people. (see our map for location) Imagine yourself on our deck with a sliver of moonlight coming across the Atlantic and right to you!

Why Scott and Loraine chose Boothbay Harbor Area

We moved to the Northeast from Minnesota a few years ago. After many trips to the coast searching for the perfect location, we settled on the Boothbay area because of its rugged beauty, great amenities, and superb central location along the coast. The town of Boothbay Harbor is just five minutes away with many fine restaurants and great shopping. Whale watches, harbor cruises and a great botanical garden are availble all summer long. Ocean point with it's wonderful views is just up the road. The best part of our location is that it is a bit of a local secret. We have dramatic views, lots of great walks, great places to kayak, and all off the beaten tourist path, yet with everything you need to make a complete Maine vacation close at hand.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best parts of staying at our cottage are the great opportunities for wildlife viewing. Although we can't promise what you will see from our deck, we have observed all of the following in the last year alone; Minke whales, Finn whales, seals, eagles, ospreys, porpise, and every type of sea bird and duck imaginable! Perhaps the very best part of staying at our cottage is what it doesn't have, and that is a road between you and the sea, and lots of people. No roads or powerlines come between you and the ocean, and that means no cars, no people walking past, and no noise. Just you and the wide open Atlantic!

One in a Million!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in July of 2016. This cottage must have one of the finest views I have seen on the coast of Maine. Period. We had a list of tons of things to do and see in the area but I must confess that with the splendid weather we had we never ventured far from this amazing spot. Highlights were Harbor Cruise in Boothbay..kayaking out to White Island to see the seal pups..and great meals at the Thistle Inn not to mention local lobsters from the docks that we cooked at the cottage! I hesitate to even review this cottage as it is already so hard to get a week but the owners have really created a p effect vacation spot here!

Two glorious weeks in this spectacular Maine home.

  • 5 of 5

The quintessential Maine rocky coast - times 10!!!! One of the most relaxing vacations I have taken. I've been renting in Maine for years, up and down the coast, but this was my favorite by a long shot. The vistas, the waves, the sounds, the sunsets, the house - all A++. I stayed for two glorious weeks. I cannot say enough about the house, the location, and the owner. The rest of the reviews written about this place are all true. It is hard to put into words what this place was like. Even the amazing photos do not capture the sophisticated decor and the truly amazing location. Thank you Scott!

You found it!

  • 5 of 5

STOP! "Don't ya move a 'goldarned' inch", as the old Maine story goes from Marshall Dodge. This is the place you have been looking for. My wife walked through on our arrival and out onto the deck and said, "This is just as it was described". I certainly agreed and breathed a huge sigh of relief. This was the 1st week of a 3 in Maine for our 50th wedding anniversary. The second 2 weeks to be in the Belgrade Lakes at another of Scott's properties.

The cottage has been expertly renovated and decorated by Scott for your stay. The amenities are as described. The kitchen will accomodate all your culinary needs. We chose the loft bedroom for it's view and coziness.

If it gets foggy, you will not care!

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

My husband I were hoping to find a nice place to stay for our annual summer getaway. I never dreamed we would ever stay at a place so beautiful, so peaceful, so amazing as Atlantic Dreams! It was absolutely perfect--when we wanted to go into town (to shop or to go on a cruise or to eat out or...), it was a piece of cake to get there and back--quick, too. But we did a lot of just hanging out, playing board games, reading, and listening to the water. I cannot say enough about the deck! Leaning back in an Adirondack chair, watching sailboats pass by, lobstermen raise and lower their traps each day, birds, waves--perfect. Just watching the tide come in and out was fascinating to me. The kitchen is great, had everything we needed. Parking is a cinch. Scott was a dream to work with, too. Answered every question we had, sometimes almost immediately! If you are looking for an ultra-relaxing, absolutely beautiful place to enjoy your vacation, Atlantic Dreams is it!

Truly Maine: An absolutely wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Atlantic Dreams is a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I stayed there for two weeks at the end of April and beginning of May, to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We could not have found a more excellent vacation cottage. It is right on the ocean, with nothing to block the spectacular view in any way. With all the windows, it is light and bright, and watching the sunrise each morning is amazing. It is the quintessential ocean cottage, and it is designed and decorated just as the perfect ocean cottage should be. Everything that is needed for a great stay is there, but the setting and views are a prime feature. As another person said, it was hard to tear yourself away from the views, even to read the great books we had brought. We watched lobster boats going in and out, we listened to the waves, and saw many sea birds. We even saw ships in the distance. The cottage has DVDs to watch, as well as CDs and a great CD player. There are many books to read, if you forgot to bring your own. Though the cottage is on a wonderful quiet wooded road, it is easy to get to everywhere you might want to go. However, we could always look forward to returning to our beautiful cottage at the end of each day.

Scott was wonderful to work with, and he answered every question or concern. He made recommendations for places to eat and visit, and was easy to reach by phone or email. Our stay was everything we wanted it to be, and even more. We can’t wait to return.

Everything we had hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Atlantic Dreams is indeed truly special. Every positive comment by previous renters is absolutely true but I'll still add my 2 cents worth. First, it's about location, location, location. One of the reasons we rented this cottage was to have an unblocked view of the ocean and the rocky coast of Maine....Got that big time. We sat out on the deck every possible moment and although I brought plenty to read, I found myself spending much of the time simply gazing out at the ocean that was RIGHT THERE! Second, but not really second, the cottage itself was like something straight out of a Down East magazine. Whoever decorated the place got it absolutely right on, beautifully and comfortably decorated but not detracting from the awesome view outside. We both enjoyed our stay there so much that we've booked another 2 weeks at a future date.

Our cottage is ideally situated for runners and hikers. There are many miles of beautiful roads and trails right from our door. Kayaking is also wonderful here, (both ocean kayaking and in the many protected bays and rivers) with more places to paddle than you could explore in a lifetime!
