"I am going to sum this up. Breathtaking, beautiful location on Swanlake. Unexpected stocked home with everything to offer! We felt completely at home and did not want to leave. The views throughout the home were endless. Rain or Shine, we had an amazing time. Coming from a family who is all about palm trees and blue oceans, we are looking to come back again this summer. The most relaxing fun week. We fished everyday catching an array of different types of fish off the canoe and kayaks and directly off the beach. We didn't leave the house for one day except to go to the gun range. The weather was perfect although it rained 2 days out of 6, we still found comfort inside with the stocked kitchen appliances fireplace and views. The house is maintained with every amenity. The grounds are beautiful with flowers, sandy beach, fresh decking and a hose outside to rinse off before entering the home. The owners are sweet and allowed us to stay 2 extra days. I love the fact we were able to use the washer and dryer before we left. I cant say enough it was fantastic!"

Perfect location with good support staff if needed.
"We rented Abby's Boothbay Harbor home for our 50th wedding anniversary destination event. We had 14 quests from throughout the U.S. flying in for the celebration. NO...the cottage does not hold sixteen people. Most were here for only three nights and we placed them at Brown's Wharf Inn for their stay.
The cottage has all of the amenities you could wish for and is beautifully decorated. There are cheaper rentals in Boothbay, but they do not compare to the attention to detail that you find at Portside.
Being from Florida we appreciated the fireplace in the morning probably the most. The kitchen has everything a chef would want. We don't cook when we come to Maine so we did not get the oven dirty. Another nice touch was the presence of the various household products that we usually have to go out and purchase.
We will book this property for our future visits to Boothbay Harbor. We usually come up every two years."

"We had a wonderful week staying at the Healy’s condo during the second week of October. Their condo is fully appointed throughout including the smallest detail down to heated towel bars in the bathrooms. We cooked several meals in the well-equipped kitchen; the open floor plan is inviting and welcoming with special views from all angles. The views of Mill Cove as the tides rise and fall provide a changing backdrop to watch the active wildlife and fall colors. We were thoroughly relaxed and felt like we were at home. A toast to the Healy’s with their welcoming gift of a bottle of Zinfadel. We enjoyed our stay so much that we reserved two weeks for next year."

"If you don't need water parks, malls, long lines and chain restaurants, but appreciate fresh lobster right off the boat, astonishing scenery, a quiet oceanfront location, excellent local eateries, a sandy beach and wonderfully clean accommodations, THE LITTLE RED HOUSE IS FOR YOU. At nearby New Harbor lobster fisherman unload their catch daily at one of the most photographed harbors on the Atlantic. Taking a ferry ride to Monhegan Island is a must as is watching the sun rise at nearby Pemaquid Point light. Art galleries abound in the area. In the 40+ years we have vacationed along the Maine coast, our time at the Little Red House is at the top of the list. It is well-equipped, spacious and a joy to visit. You will want to come back."
