Recent Boothbay Harbor reviews
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."

"Thanks for the wonderful time! We loved every minute of our trip to Maine. We hit all your favorites including Trevitt's for lobster rolls (twice) and the trails at the Botanical Gardens are gorgeous! We loved the carriage house and the location to everything was perfect. Thanks for everything and we hope to see Arden some time again in the future!"

"My family and friends just enjoyed the best, most relaxing vacation we have seen in a long time. I am an amateur chef and the kitchen was to die for. Fully stocked with everything you need! The home sets up perfectly with several "spaces" for relaxing, firewatching, hot tub, reading, conversing, admiring the flowers and eating! The location is perfect: waterfront with privacy and a 5 minute walk to town. We had fresh flowers from the garden in each room. Truly amazing the work and love Karen and Alden dedicate to their garden! We enjoyed 9 out of 10 days without rain! The day it did rain, no big deal, snuggled by the fire with a book! All the firewood provided by Alden (and it was dry!) I have stayed in the area for 7 of the last 8 years and this was by far the best home we have rented. We felt welcome and at home: Serenity!
Thank you Alden and Karen (and Katrina the cat!)"

Wonderful Boothbay Harbor Cottage in Great Location!
"We spent a wonderful 4 weeks in Buttercup cottage! From the very first conversation I had with Karen on the phone, I knew we had made the right choice. The cottage is in a perfect location-easy walk to town for shopping or restaurants, the Best park right across the street, and what an awesome view of the water from the cottage deck! We had most meals out on the deck and so enjoyed watching the lobster fishing boats catching what could be our next meal! Buttercup has all the amenities you could need or want and is very comfortable!. John and Karen, the owners, were so accommodating, kind and helpful-pointing out things to do, places to eat and making sure we had what we needed. We were so satisfied with our stay, we have already made reservations for next summer at Buttercup! Can't wait to return!"
