About Geoff Cornell

Our very special and beautiful cottage has remained in our family since 1929! We have enjoyed summers in Boothbay as the cottage has been passed down thru generations. We like to share our home with those who appreciate and respect it's beauty, superb location, beautiful antiques and heirloom braided rugs. Our great grandmother made all the rugs on the front porch of the cottage, while enjoying the views of the ocean and wildlife. The cottage has been well maintained and updated tastefully, while still retaining charm.

Wonderful hosts and an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Geoff's terrific cottage for a family get-together and dinner party in late September. I can't begin to describe how amazing the cottage and surrounding property are--the pictures do not do it justice! The living room is a wonderful place to unwind, we had a lovely dinner overlooking the bay on the covered porch, and spent a relaxing evening by the fire pit. The cottage is tastefully decorated with family heirlooms, a great book collection, games, etc. Geoff was a gracious host and provided everything we could have asked for. We are already beginning to plan a return trip next summer, and we can't wait to spend even more time at this tremendous cottage!

Spectacular spot will be back!

  • 5 of 5

this is the perfect spot for a weekend getaway with a group. Geoff was such a good host and thought of everything down to setting a fire and laying out the kayaks for us. From the fire pit to the shuffle board and access to the water by the dock we had an amazing weekend taking in Booth Bay. The house was just perfect.

Spectacular Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Each year our family hosts a reunion in Boothbay - this year was especially significant, as we celebrated my father in law's 90th birthday! With family flying in from Europe and a rare opportunity to spend time with all of our children, it was very important to me to find the perfect property - which I did! This is an older home with an incredible history and it's apparent that the family that owns the home - loves it! There's exquisite attention to detail, from beautiful antique furnishings throughout, to spa robes in all the rooms, to dreamy down duvets and sheets - every aspect of this beautiful property has been meticulously appointed.

Perhaps the highlight of the cottage though, is the stunning wrap around porch where we enjoyed the scenic Boothbay while dining with the family. On chilling mornings a roaring fire in the living room fireplace was so serene and our kids loved the fire pit in the evenings. Our family that lives in Boothbay was able to arrive by boat and found easy access to the homes personal dock - kayaks are also available and wonderful for exploring the area.

Finally, the property owners are absolutely delightful and and went to great lengths to assure our every need or request was met. We had a spectacular stay and highly recommend this quintessential Maine cottage!

true Maine

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to explore the beauties of the great state of Maine. Beautiful surroundings with spectacular air, water, and wildlife. We sailed and kayaked and rode bikes and ate lobster and took many naps. A splendid antidote to cities, near and yet far.

Serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in late June the gardens around the home were gorgeous, this property does not seem like a rental in any way. The pictures of the grounds do not do it justice. We appreciated having the deep water moorings and dock, and found many calm water periods for the kayaks. We had beautiful weather and spent a good deal of time on the spacious and well furnished porch, with both garden and ocean views. The Boothbay and mid coast area have much to offer for activities, but we found that a lot of our planned day trips went by the wayside, as we did not want to leave this property! The home itself was well appointed and accurately represented. The owners live nearby and made it clear that they were available for any questions or other needs. I hope to stay here again!

Wonderful spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two boys (9 and 7) - along with her parents - had a fantastic stay for two weeks here. The house is the perfect blend of "old Maine charm" - exposed beams, beautiful floors, neat antiques, etc. - combined with modern conveniences where they count - nice washer/dryer, great kitchen, new bathroom in the downstairs master, etc.

The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had literally everything we could have asked for, and the gas grill outside was huge and well maintained.

Outside the house was a paradise - the gardens were gorgeous, the lawn gently sloped down to the water, and there were plenty of fun rocks for the boys to play on. Finally, there is an excellent dock with a ladder and the swimming was great.

Lots to do in the area, it was nice being only 5 minutes from Boothbay, but a world away in much quieter East Boothbay. The East Boothbay General store is a pleasant walk, and they have excellent lunch options there. The Maine Botanical Gardens and the nearby Linekin Bay Land Trust preserves have some great hiking which we enjoyed as well.

Owner's Response: What a nice family from down south! The young boys bonded with our neighbors children, and to faintly hear the young voices on the shore frolicking in the water was a delight. Our guests took exceptional care of the cottage and we really appreciate it when guests take care of things as if it's their very own. They are returning next year and we look forward to welcoming them back! Thank you North Carolina for your kind review!

East Boothbay is a charming small village about three miles from Boothbay Harbor. We have a fantastic general store, operated by a retired private chef, within walking distance of the cottage. Gourmet food, fresh local produce, wines, beverages, etc.

Boothbay Botanical Gardens is not to be missed! Absolutely stunning gardens with over 250 acres of river front.

Lighthouses, outlet shops in Freeport, The Farnsworth Museum and Camden are all brilliant day trips. Boothbay is centrally located on the coast, making it an ideal base to explore the fascinating coast of Maine!

We have three deep water moorings, should you choose to arrive by boat/ yacht.
