Property description

Built in 2006 on the site of a downtown fishing Co-Op, the Back Bay Cottage has three rental condo units. This unit, 'Starboard' is a 1 Queen bedroom/1 bath (sleeps 2)(new a/c for 2014) with a large covered deck, pier & float right on the water looking out at the harbor.
With limited kitchen facilities (no oven), this location is so close to over 30 restaurants, delis and coffee shops as well as all the downtown shops, marinas, and boat tours that you'll never need that oven.
Not only convenient, its quiet too - next to the Chowder House, a block away from the footbridge - everything is close by.
The Back Bay Cottage was designed to imitate the 1890's look of a 'Gentleman's Cottage'. The owners have duplicated that look inside with charming bead-board detail and European antiques.
We provide all linens, towels, paper products, condiments, a 'welcome' basket and some complimentary wine & coffee.
Starboard shares a dock & float with the two other units. Not for large boats because you have to fit beneath the footbridge, it's perfect for canoes, kayaks and dinghys.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: I'm a property developer, she's a European antique dealer, and we're both ocean sailors. We combined our talents to build the Back Bay Cottage in 2006 and made it elegantly casual.

Why Boothbay Harbor:
We purchased an old restaurant on pilings over the inner harbor water; tore it down & built a state-of-the-art 1890's 'Gentleman's Cottage' in what we consider is the quintessential small Maine fishing village 'with amenties'.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The location is perfect. Close enough to everything so that you don't need a car, but far enough away from the night life that you don't need to be forced to listen to the latest taste in live music.
