"The Cozy Harbor Cottage was the perfect spot to support our annual Boothbay Harbor summer trip. Long-time visitors of the area with a cabin on West Harbor Pond, our extended family has grown beyond the capacity of our cabin and we needed a place for our family of four to stay. We love Southport Island, and the Cozy Cottage was the perfect home base for all of our favorite activities. We launched paddleboards and kayaks directly from the water and paddled around to Hendrick's Head Beach for our relaxing beach days. The extensive yard was perfect for expending the energy of two young boys (12 and 8), complete with a grill and a large picnic table. The cottage is also within walking distance of the general store, so any forgotten necessities are just a few minutes away. The accommodations are cozy and easy to settle in to. John is an excellent host; he was very responsive and easy-going throughout the booking, check-in, and check-out processes. He is local in town and accessible if needed. Our stay was awesome - would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone visiting the area."

"The cottage is very a well maintained piece of history. It has been very nicely updated. Every bedroom had a view of the ocean and it was wonderful to be lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the waves. We enjoyed the shore and searched for shells and sea glass treasures in the rocks and sand. A bonus was watching the lobster boat checking traps and listening to the loons call. David was pleasant and prompt in maintaining contact throughout from inquiries to booking and greeting us upon arrival."

"The Owl's Nest was the perfect place for our family of 8--4 grandparents, 2 children, and 2 grandchildren. The expansive porch was the perfect setting for our morning cup of coffee as we watched the fishermen check their lobster traps and a glass of wine in the evening as we watched the sun set. We fished (our grandson caught a lobster on his fishing line) , played ping pong, made smores by the fireplace, walked to the East Boothbay General Store for doughnuts each morning, and simply soaked in the beauty of our surroundings. It is the quintessential Maine cottage with every amenity needed to have a fun filled week--comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, and a perfect location for easy access into Boothbay."

"Atlantic Dreams is a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I stayed there for two weeks at the end of April and beginning of May, to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We could not have found a more excellent vacation cottage. It is right on the ocean, with nothing to block the spectacular view in any way. With all the windows, it is light and bright, and watching the sunrise each morning is amazing. It is the quintessential ocean cottage, and it is designed and decorated just as the perfect ocean cottage should be. Everything that is needed for a great stay is there, but the setting and views are a prime feature. As another person said, it was hard to tear yourself away from the views, even to read the great books we had brought. We watched lobster boats going in and out, we listened to the waves, and saw many sea birds. We even saw ships in the distance. The cottage has DVDs to watch, as well as CDs and a great CD player. There are many books to read, if you forgot to bring your own. Though the cottage is on a wonderful quiet wooded road, it is easy to get to everywhere you might want to go. However, we could always look forward to returning to our beautiful cottage at the end of each day.
Scott was wonderful to work with, and he answered every question or concern. He made recommendations for places to eat and visit, and was easy to reach by phone or email. Our stay was everything we wanted it to be, and even more. We can’t wait to return."
