Oceanfront Cottage For 2, Quiet, Kayaking,view The Natural Beauty All Around You

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


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.. The cottage has a microwave, full sized refrigerator, cable T.V. with built in DVD, and Wi-Fi internet. The bathroom has hot and cold water with a shower.

There is a dock for your kayak or boat or use our kayaks included in your rental. For larger boats we have a mooring with 7' of water at low tide that can be used when available. 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( inside and outside) and no pet property.

Just a short drive from the city to escape with your partner to the quietness of the nature that surrounds you! Don't wait ...if you have a week in mind you can book at any time ! PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

This little cottage was perfect! We have been visiting Maine for many years, usually with our two daughters. This time we were ALONE!! This is in a great location, it is quiet and has everything. Nan and Mac were gracious hosts. First, it was immaculate, small but for 2 just right! The kitchen is better than it looks - two burner top, full fridge and everything you need to cook. The things we really liked were all the outdoor areas to enjoy the ocean. There is a small deck, great for morning coffee and evening glass of wine. The dock system is great with two kayaks (we have rented them for the family before and it's not cheap) There are also chairs on the lawn that can be moved or a fire pit above!! The other thing that we loved was the fact that it was pretty quiet but you could walk over the hill and get lobsters for dinner or take the foot bridge into Booth Bay. There is a GREAT breakfast place to the right once you are over the hill, around the corner can't remember the name ?? Mama Jeans or something like that, very friendly, great breakfast. Mid Coast Maine is also filled with great towns to explore. Nan and Mac have this down!!! We enjoyed them so much we invited them to stay with us when they visit Lancaster County! Thanks Nan and Mac, we had a great time!! 💚

Beautiful spot...fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for 5 nights. Nan and Mac were gracious hosts. The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed for a fun few days away. Linens are not included...There is a fee...or bring your own. We had never incountered that before. The cottage was very comfortable and so quiet. It is a short walk into town so we never easy we did it several times a day. The deck looks out on the water and is serene and beautiful. The cottage is small but worked for us as we only ate breakfast and a lunch or two. The bed was comfortable. Would definitelly recommend.

Relaxing and exploring the Maine Coast

  • 5 of 5

Nan and Mac are great hosts! They went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. This is the perfect spot to be close to town (easy 5-10 min walk) and yet away from town in your own cove. We used the kayaks to paddle into Burnt Island Lighthouse for a 7am pancake breakfast and other adventures in the near by coves. If you are looking for a nice couples getaway, this cottage is a must!

Beautiful location and cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a week at the end of an extended honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. We kayaked several times and walked into Boothbay Harbor just about everyday. We also spent many hours sitting on the deck taking in the beautiful view. The cottage is incredibly cute and supplied with all the basics. Nan and Mac were excellent hosts and helped answer any questions we had. We would definitely visit again and again!

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 Boothbay Harbor

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 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 the most beautiful on earth !

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.
