"We were at the boat house for the fall colors. The studio was perfect for just the two of us. The view of the harbor was stunning. The walk to town was short and enjoyable. Boothbay is a wonderful town with lovely shops and restaurants. We sailed on the Eastwind on a beautiful day. What a pleasurable vacation spot. Gene was a great host."

"This cottage is clean as a whistle, with everything and more that you will need to relax and enjoy the Boothbay area. The furnishings were clean and comfortable and the home surprisingly roomy. We were able to hear the gulls and fog horns! It is just far enough outside of the noise of downtown Boothbay and yet very close. Great place to stay!!!"

"14 friends stayed here, utilizing both cottages. We were astounded by the very large bedrooms and beautiful views from our perch right on the water! The cottage never felt crowded and you could always find a spot to make your own. The wrap-around porch was again huge with very comfy furniture and lots of it. I'll always remember our fun filled stay here!"

"How rare it is to find a vacation residence that is in the middle of a small community with numerous activity options and still feel a strong sense of privacy and serenity. That is Backbay Cottage in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The amenities of the cottage exceeded our expectations as did the quality of the cottage itself. Stepping through the french doors that open onto a private deck, we found ourselves literally at the water's edge. Stepping out of the cottage directly onto one of the main streets of Boothbay Harbor allowed us to have access within a few walking minutes to restaurants and shops of all kinds. I probably sound to enthusiastic, but this was such a delightful experience for all of us in my family. These were the best vacation accomdations we have every enjoyed."
