Boothbay cottage description

Winter Special: Two people can rent any two nights for $410 and get a third consecutive night free; four people $499; six people $599. Or two people can rent a week for $1250 and get two extra consecutive nights free. Rent two consecutive weeks and enjoy a 10% discount.

Seanook is built on its own rocky point sequestered on the shore of Linekin Bay. It is grandfathered uniquely close to the ocean; the tide comes in around and under it. You can have this rare historic experience of staying over the water, which is like being on a boat except it doesn’t rock. Panoramic windows and 4 decks put you over the water. Watch weather waft across the waves and spectacular sunsets reflected in calm. On a rainy night the pitter-patter on the roof will lull you to sleep. Wake up to the call of seabirds and the lapping of little ripples. The ever-changing moods of the bay will entertain you on 3 sides year-round. See vibrant colors develop along the shore in October. In winter you can be toasty warm by the cozy fire, and watch the ice floats and wildlife on the bay all at once. If you are lucky enough to get snowfall, the views are pristine!
Seanook is a long-time family cottage, now a nearly complete year-round home. Experience this special place while it is available. Wireless internet provided.
A romantic getaway in any season -- you may decide to just sit and watch the play of light and wind on the water. See seagulls, osprey, and an occasional eagle soar. You'll observe a variety of ducks in winter, and perhaps a seal or a beaver in summer. Read a book or sunbathe on the upper deck. Go beach-combing to discover varied creatures that abound along the shore of the Gulf of Maine. Go kayaking if it's calm. Anglers of any age can fish right off the dock. Writers find Seanook a peaceful private retreat where they can work on their manuscripts. Day hikes in one of the many land preserves are a favorite outdoor activity. How about a romantic sail at sunset? Many boat excursions are offered in nearby Boothbay Harbor. Perhaps you would like deep sea fishing. You will also find lighthouse tours, museums, and art studios starting with nearby Paradise Studio.
Some of the best eateries are right here in Boothbay. The East Boothbay General Store has morning paper & coffee, breakfast pizza and gourmet take-out. Live theater has a dramatic presence in Boothbay Harbor with events nightly at the Opera House, including Family Night on Tuesdays. Afternoon tea is a yearly tradition with some of our long time renters. Visit the aquarium in summer, where children's programs and classes enhance the intimate quality of their hands-on coastal experience. Take a short boat ride to Burnt Island where costumed guides reenact life of a lighthouse keeper's family in 1950. Go antiquing, or gallery hopping starting with nearby Paradise Studio. L.L.Bean and other outlets are just an hour away in Freeport.

We do accept Visa and Master Card, but only if you are willing to pay an extra 4%. Check or cash is preferable. One half the total rent is payable in advance as a deposit to hold your time; the remainder is due on arrival. If you are unable to keep your reservation, we ask that you reschedule at another available time, or we can try to re-rent your dates less a $100 rebooking fee as long as you give us at least 30 days to do so.

Seanook is located in Mid-Coast Maine only three miles from Boothbay Harbor. Our unique spot at the head of Linekin Bay on our own tiny peninsula affords us water views on three sides including a tantalizing vista to the mouth of the bay and open ocean. You may decide to just sit and watch the play of light and wind on the water. Writers find Seanook a peaceful private retreat where they can work on their manuscripts. Children of all ages enjoy exploring the beaches to discover varied creatures that abound along the shore of the Gulf of Maine. Anglers can fish right off the dock. If you want to relax at any season, this is the spot! We welcome a couple as readily as a family or group of friends. Seanook is an ideal place for a small reunion or retreat. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Artist studios, gourmet seafood restaurants, antiquing, boating excursions, fishing, kayaking, hiking, golf, and live theater are some of the activities to be found in this area.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: When I purchased the family summer property, it needed complete revamping! I alternated a month in Colorado and a month in Boothbay while Paradise Cottage (my grandmother's summer house) was winterized and expanded, and Seanook (the vacation house of my childhood) was practically torn down and rebuilt. The early March morning after I arrived the final time to stay, I met Ron, who was working for my contractor on Seanook. Since then we have done all the work around the place ourselves. The following winter we built a scale model of our future shop/studio on the diningroom table and broke ground in August of 2000.

Why the Owner Chose Boothbay:
Seanook was purchased by my mother, a native Mainer, in 1947. At the time it was nothing more than a tiny three month summer bungalow, but as a child I loved the spot and everything about it . It was my life-long dream to return here to live. Now Ron and I stay on the property year-round. Every season is our favorite! We are forever changing and improving wherever we can. In everything we do we try to maintain some of the rustic seaside character of the place, and imbue it with our own personalities and creative curves.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
To wake up every morning to the call of seabirds and songbirds and the quiet lapping of little waves, the varying moods of the ocean, the view towards the head of the bay with the sun creeping down that opposite shore, and the verdant Maine woods around is about as close to ideal as one can get and then to be bathed in fresh salt air all day long and to have that long view across the water right here for the looking any time gives one that relaxed 'aaah' feeling.
