Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, Queen size bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Located on the shores of Linekin Bay is the cottage you have been searching for. It's a romantic cottage built for two with breathtaking views of the natural beauty that surrounds it. The views from your cottage include Barrett's Park, Lobster Cove, Linekin Bay and world famous Cabbage Island. Watch the bright red sunrises and see how the sky changes to shades of light pinks and blues as the dawn comes forth. It's a spectacular sight that will remain with you forever. Step out onto your porch and experience the smell of the fresh morning salt air. Relax with your morning coffee made with a Keurig coffee pot so bring your K cups, otherwise we have a Mr. Coffee. The cottage has a microwave, full sized refrigerator, cable T.V. with built in DVD, and Broadband internet. The bathroom has hot and cold water with a shower.

There is a dock for your kayak or boat or use our new kayaks included in your rental. For larger boats we have a mooring with 7' of water at low tide. Be sure to visit us during Windjammer Days, an annual event that last for a week.

You can cook your own Maine lobster and steamers over a wood fire in our outdoor fireplace, pots and pans provided or walk down the street and have your shore dinner prepared by one of the local restaurants. Be sure to save room for some delicious Smore's roasting your marshmallow's over the open fire.

The town center is a 5 minute walk where there is unlimited shopping and local seafood restaurants, boats are moored and at dockside in the harbor.

From the harbor you can catch a whale watching boat, deep sea fishing boat, take a sail on the Eastwind with Captain and author Herb Smith, or just a nice cruise around the harbor and surrounding islands and watch the seals, puffins and whales in their natural habitat.

This is a Maine vacation at its best and one that will call you back to the unique and beautiful shores of Boothbay Harbor. In September and October view the changing of the leaves and the reflections in the water...

Transportation is available from the Portland International Jetport or the Concord Coach bus stop in Wiscasset.

We are located just off the Maine Island Trail between the Sheepscot and Damariscotta Rivers. Paddle right up to our dock for a few nights rest and the exploration of Boothbay Harbor on foot and approximately 5 miles north of Damariscove Island. The cottage is adequate for two people only. No extra overnight guests allowed. This is a non-smoking and no pet property.

Just a short drive from the city to enjoy the quietness of the nature that surrounds you! Don't wait ...if you have a week in mind you can hold a reservation for a small fee ! PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

About Nancy Morris

We live on the property and try our upmost please our guests.

Nancy Morris purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Nancy Morris chose Maine

It is quiet and peaceful...a place where birds sing at daylight, ever changing tides, lobstermen at work hauling their traps, beautiful sunrises and hardly a cloud in the sky except when the fog rolls in...an awesome sight !

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located on the edge of town in a quiet, peaceful area. Stay awhile and steal away to barefoot days and cool nights. Here in Boothbay Harbor you can linger, let go and let these shores restore your spirit....just when you need it most. It's R & R at its best ! It's beautiful !

Guestbook comments from the owner

In all aspects of the stay, this place was outstanding. The hosts, Nancy and Mac were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best it could be. The cottage was immaculate and decorated very well to give an atmosphere of a great seaside getaway. It is an easy walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor with many restaurants available. Cant say enough great things about it.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this "tiny house"! It had everything we needed and was quite comfortable. The view from the cottage is spectacular. Nan and Mac are excellent hosts - super friendly and very knowledgeable of the area.

DELIGHTFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

As others have written, the cottage is cozy, but perfect for two. Mac and Nan are gracious, yet unobtrusive, hosts with a wealth of experience in the area. As an active couple (despite our advancing years), the surrounding region is paradise, and we made full use of the kayaks provided, as well as Nan's recommendations for terrific hikes. We were only able to stay three days this time, but would have preferred that it was three weeks. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are looking forward to your return soon ! We'll have the kayaks ready as well as a possible boat ride in our 19' Sea Hunt. Any season in the harbor is a good time to visit as the weather, like the tide, is ever changing.

Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cute little spot on the water. We came up for a cozy getaway and that's just what we got. The cottage, more like the tiny houses that are so popular today, was immaculate and had all the little touches one would want. Since this was very late in the season the Gas fireplace was not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional as it got down to the 30s overnight but the cottage stayed warm. We basically parked the car all weekend and walked to and from town. The footbridge was out so it doubled the distance but we enjoyed the exercise. Although late in the season, I was looking forward to kayaking around the cove but the kayaks were put away for the season. Also, the dock was hauled up for the season while we were there. Still, plenty of shops and restaurants were open and the crisp autumn air and lack of crowds made this a wonderful time to enjoy this part of Maine. Our hosts made the trip extra special by giving us some cuttings of their lovely Montauk Daisies after we asked about the gorgeous flowers still blooming in their garden. We will grow these in our yard to remember our little get away and think fondly of the tide rising and ebbing next to the cottage by the cove. Note: the well maintained gravel path and stairs down to the cottage is somewhat steep so be warned if you have trouble negotiating this terrain.

Cozy Coastal Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our October stay in Boothbay Harbor at the Morrises' Lobster Cove cottage! The cottage is decorated perfectly for an ocean "feel" to it, as well as being spotlessly clean and tidy! The little gas fireplace near the bed and couch provided such a cozy and warm touch for us on the cool autumn nights we were there. There is a covered porch facing the bay where we enjoyed having a toast or two! Other than a couple of times when we went to a restaurant, we sat at the little counter in the kitchen for our meals, taking in the view of the bay and a pretty park across the water. Got lovely photos of the sunrise too!

Our only disappointment was that the kayaks had been put to bed for the winter, but that was understandable as it was late Oct. Instead of kayaking we rode our bikes to the village and did a lot of walking at preserves and the Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens (a must for every visitor!) .

The Morrises were very attentive, friendly, and helpful, obviously caring about their guests' vacation and their cottages. We highly recommend the cottage for a romantic and restful vacation!

GREAT find

  • 5 of 5

I didn't have any particular Maine city in mind when I booked this quaint cottage. I searched on the VRBO website for an ocean front cottage for two on the ocean front. The results of the search included this property that sounded like a perfect fit for us. It certainly was! Although October temperatures are not condusive to kayaking we enjoyed the view from the cottage windows and deck. Although the cottage looks small it is furnished with everything we needed. It is amazing how Nancy used the available space to make it very user friendly. The bath towels were softer than ours at home! It is decorated with an ocean nautical theme which really added to the "feel" of the location on the ocean bay. We loved all of the water views from the multiple windows and deck. Eating breakfast while looking out at the glass-like water really provided for a great start to the day. The sunrises on a clear day were spectacular. A particularly inviting feature is the gas/propane operated wall fireplace that provides the heat for the cottage. Since the outside temperature was chilly, especially at night, the fireplace heat was often triggered by the thermostat. It provided a very relaxing and calming effect especially while falling asleep. We really appreciated having the owners, Nancy and Mac, on the property. Nancy was able to immediately take care of the one very slight problem we had with the heating. They were the perfect hosts; very helpful when we asked for suggestions for restaurants, hikes, "field trips", and beautiful coastline areas/parks where we were able to walk on the shoreline or climb on the rocks. On the other hand they were never intrusive. The Boothbay Harbor area provides such a variety of outdoor activities and this wonderful cottage is the perfect location to access all of them! It is on a very quiet street that feels miles away from the town's central visitor area but is really only a few blocks away. We highly recommend this inviting cottage when vacationing in this area of Maine!!
