East Boothbay cottage description

Take a step back to a more peaceful time in our 1890 Gabled Victorian cottage on Murray Hill Road in East Boothbay. Enjoy views of Linekin Bay from the cozy screened porch or from the row of Adirondack Chairs nestled among the Birch trees.

The White Barnboard kitchen with white porcelain sink will remind you of your Grandmother's kitchen, but Grandma never had a dishwasher! The cottage has 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms. The Master bedroom has a Queen sized bed, the Maine room has a full bed and the Scottish room has 2 twin beds. All bedrooms have water views.

Other features include cable television, and a washing machine.

Murray Hill Road has two docks; one is a boat ramp. Our cottage is nestled right in between the two- neither is more than a 3 minute walk away. The Five Gable Inn is a neighbor and a wonderful option if you are vacationing with relatives. The East Boothbay General Store is a short walk for the paper in the morning and has the best donuts in Boothbay.

Attractions in the area include downtown Boothbay Harbor, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Ocean Point, and, of course- the water.

And lastly: 2 kayaks, with life-jackets and paddles, are also available for your use.

                            Worn out and run down. Baths are old and small. beds are tired, kitchen and equipment have been there for too many years.. Boothbay is great but this place needs a lot of work!

                            Sue and Roy are perfect hosts. Both are personable, friendly, helpful, and their love for both their lovely cottage, East Boothbay village, and the Boothbay region shines through in both their charming decorating touches and their ready-offering of must-see places and events. Even though we are multiple-time visitors to the area we still appreciated their bringing places that we may have overlooked in the past to our attention like the Maine Botanical Gardens. We took their advice and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Be sure to check-out the many brochures they have amassed for your convenience. There are sure to come in handy in planning your leisure time should you find the need to ever leave this haven for a few hours during your stay. The bedrooms are a little small as should be expected in a home of its era, but they like the entire home are decorated very lovely and make you feel like you've stepped into an L.L. Bean Catalog. The views of beautiful Linekin Bay, while obscured by trees and the lovely homes across the road, are nonetheless very lovely and relaxing. You will especially enjoy both the glass-enclosed and covered, outside porches. Our family members simply loved to sit out there each morning and enjoy breakfast while viewing the many friendly, passing pedestrians and the lovely views. And be sure to check out the East Boothbay General Store. It must be seen to be believed. As stated, the cottage is not directly on Linekin Bay, but it is very close across the road and there are two very nice public accesses within a two-minute walk in either direction. Especially nice is the East Boothbay town dock with its lovely flowers and the well-kept pier which affords beautiful views of upper Linekin Bay, its many boats, and the lovely homes along its shore. If you are looking to be right on top of the water and in the middle of the tourist action this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy all the many pleasurable offerings of a charming, historical home in a charming, traditional, historical, and lovely waterside Maine village that both Mainers and people from afar have come to love for many generations, you can do no better than to contact Sue and Roy and see about spending some time of your own in their lovely, "1890 Gabled Victorian Cottage with Linekin Bay Views and Charm".

                            Described exactly. Very warm and cozy. Nice partial water views from the porch. Close to kayaking and a walk to the country store for supplies and internet. Porch was a little snug for 4 adults and bedrooms very small, but very pleasant otherwise. The owner was very helpful in answering all questions.All the ammenities were great-use of the fully stocked kitchen and kayaks. We definitely recommend this spot for other travelers. Hope to return!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Roy and Sue own this cottage and use it as their getaway from their jobs as a teacher and lawyer in the Portland area. They enjoy hosting friends and family at the cottage, taking walks around Ocean Point, kayaking and boating.

                          Why the Owner Chose East Boothbay:
                          We love East Boothbay. The coves, shoreline, and peace and quiet were what we came for, but we enjoy being close to downtown Boothbay and having a space large enough to host our kids and friends from away.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We're close to the East Boothbay General Store, so our days start with a short walk for coffee and the paper. We have quite a few visitors in town over the summer, and when we've needed extra space its been great to have the Five Gable Inn as an option down the street. Having the two public docks is also great- we can launch our kayaks, lounge on the dock, or get out to our boat if we want to boat into downtown Boothbay.
