Property description

You’ll feel like you’re a world away inside this lovely, well-appointed 2 bedroom/1½ bath cottage; but step out on one of the decks or relax on the front porch swing & you’ll see all the action of beautiful Boothbay Harbor – a true working waterfront – including lobster boats, shipyards, tour boats & pleasure crafts of all sizes – even an island – all right in front of you. You'll enjoy front row seats from your private covered balcony to watch the fireworks during the Windjammer Festival & the 4th of July.

A short 1 minute walk to the famous “Foot Bridge” brings you over the inner harbor right into “downtown” Boothbay Harbor teeming with a variety of gift shops, ice cream & candies and an authentic “salty” dockside night life.

The first level of this new cottage offers an open floor plan with kitchen, dining area & living room & sliders to great waterview/sunset deck - partially covered. The 1/2 bath is also located on first floor. The second floor offers 2 bedrooms (1 queen with sliders to the awesome waterview/sunset balcony & the other with 2 twin beds with the same great water views)- the full bath with washer/dryer shares the second floor.

Please note, the owners own home, their small marina & The Lobster Dock - a popular local restaurant that has been featured on 2 different Food Network shows – shares this open 1 acre waterfront property located directly on Atlantic Avenue on the eastside of the harbor.

Boothbay Harbor in Boothbay Harbor, Maine is considered by many world travelers to be one of the most beautiful harbors in the world and it has become a popular destination for some of the world's largest yachts. Several seasonal festivals are scheduled each year, including the Fishermen's Festival weekend in late April, Boothbay in Bloom in early June, the fast and furious lobster boat races held mid-June, the famous two-day Windjammer Days the end of June (which typically brings in several schooners and a Navy ship or two), Fourth of July fireworks over the harbor, and live concerts on the Library lawn each Thursday evening during the summer. Several craft fairs and art shows are held throughout the warm weather season. If you visit during the winter, you will enjoy shopping in your PJs mid-November during the Early Bird Sale, the Harbor Lights Festival in early December, along with the Festival of Trees and various holiday craft fairs.
