Perfection on the Harbor
"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"...."

"We had a lovely stay at the carriage house. Everything was just as it was advertised & in great condition. If we had a question we called the property caretaker & he was right there to take care of it. The Dock was a lovely place to sit & the grounds were very beautiful. Thank you for making our vacation so lovely we had a wonderful time.

"This is a perfect place to unwind, relax, etc. As mentioned in other reviews, the location to town is one of the main features that attracted us. Close enough to walk everywhere, yet far away from the hustle of the shops and restaurants. I loved the huge window facing the ocean inlet, hearing the foghorn blow, feeling the breeze through the windows in the evening, and the view could not have been any better.
I took advantage of the roof deck, reading in the afternoon sunshine, and just watching and listening to the birds and boats. This is the most relaxing spot we have been to recently. I would definitely return...the restaurants are wonderful, the surrounding areas are a lovely drive. We spent a morning at the Botanical Gardens, on the recommendation of a friend, and enjoyed it immensely. A little hard adjusting to city life again, but there is always next summer to look forward to!"

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."
