Recent Boothbay Harbor reviews
Great family cottage
"We recently spent a week at the Osprey cottage and it was exactly what we had hoped for. Beautiful and relaxing setting, nicely maintained cottage, clean, comfortable furniture, close to lots of activities for kids and adults and downtown Boothbay Harbor. Bill and Lisa were helpful and responsive, and the neighbors in the community were friendly and welcoming. Absolutely no complaints."

"I, along with three of my friends, spent a wonderful week at Lobster Cove. The house was just as described. Check-in and all contact with the Fosters was easy and efficient. The house was very clean, comfortably furnished, quiet and close to downtown. The walk into town is about a mile and easy for those accustomed to walking a bit--there's a park on the way. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. The house is very convenient to grocery and restaurants. The deck, the swing and the adirondack chairs near the water are comfortable and provide a great place to relax and read! We had coffee most mornings on the deck!"

"Upon entering the Starboard Cabin, we were immediately entranced with the beauty and comfort of our surroundings. The decor was impeccable, yet offered the warmth and comfort of home. The complimentary basket of goodies was the extra added touch that ensured perfection. Peace and serenity engulfed us as we sat on the deck overlooking the harbor's beauty. The location was superb in offering us so many options within walking distance, although we didn't even have to leave the coziness of the cabin to enjoy our vacation. The owners were delightful and extremely gracious hosts. We are looking forward to a return trip to the Starboard Cabin in the near future. It was truly a "little piece of Heaven"...."

"Everything was perfect when we arrived, including replacement of down pillows and comforter to accommodate a severe feather allergy. As frequent guests to Spruce Point inn in the past we know the Booth Bay Harbor area very well and have always said "someday we will stay at Retreat Cottage" but since we could never plan far ahead it was always booked. This year we are moving to the West Coast so this was our last Maine vacation - we never dreamed the cottage would be available but it was.
The cottage is small - perfect for two adults and is so peaceful. We started and ended each day sitting in the chairs out front - coffee in the morning; wine in the evening. The kitchen is small but thanks to our manager, Sue we learned of Eventide and were able to pick up some very nice cheeses, meats and breads for anti pasto We also stopped at the York Farmer's market on the way up and got some meats and veggies. It was easy to whip up a gourmet meal a couple of days - and the others we headed to Muscongus Bay Trading Company in Round Pond which is a long time favorte.
Having a chance for an evening sail on our last night made the entire trip perfect.
Thank you Susan for helping to make this happen and to our host John Druce who elected to keep the Retreat Cottage and maje u available for special memories."
