"One of the best vacations.... the condo is just beautiful and the view is gorgeous, the landscape always changing with tide was very enjoyable. Being able to walk 5 mins in to the hub of Booth Bay with it's great selection of little stores and restaurants was excellent. The food was great, we really enjoyed the Blue Moon and McSeagulls. Day trips were abundant and we did not get to visit them all in the week we were there, so of course that means we have to go back to see the rest of it. Hopefully sooner than later."

"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."

"My husband and I rented this cottage in June 2015, and we also brought along our dog. It was our first time visiting Boothbay Harbor, and I want to first start out by saying that it is an amazing little town! It is super dog friendly, and every one was so kind and helpful! It's definitely a great vacation spot! We were told by the locals that we came early enough to beat the summer tourist rush, but at a time where we were still able to enjoy their annual Windjammer Festival.
The cottage was beautiful, and it is in a very convenient location and easy to find. It is truly on the water, and the views can't be beat. It was absolutely stunning to wake up to views of the harbor out of the large picture window every morning (something I miss already!)! We took advantage of the rooftop deck a couple of times, and the views are even more stunning from there. We were grateful for the jetted tub, as well as the kitchenette with the full-size refrigerator. Furthermore, we really enjoyed the fact that we had access to their larger, neighboring property's dock, and we spent a couple afternoons just lounging on it.
One reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there were some cobwebs (though I think it's because we were one of the first people staying in it for the season), and I am terrified of spiders. Luckily, my husband was there to rescue me :) Also, the small kitchen table and 2 iron (?) chairs were a little difficult to use. Since the chairs are so heavy and fit so snug between the legs of the table, there were a few times when we went to stand up from sitting and the chairs fell backward from under us. I would maybe recommend some lighter wooden chairs.
We didn't get the chance to meet Shane or Gene while we were there because we were constantly out and about, but they were very accommodating through email and over the phone. They made sure to send us tons of information about Boothbay Harbor that came in handy, and I believe they were right up at their neighboring property if we really needed them.
Overall, it was a great vacation, and we would definitely stay there again if we find ourselves back in Boothbay Harbor! Thank you, Shane and Gene!"

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It was decorated beautifully and had all the amenities. We were surprised at how well the bathroom and kitchen were stocked. It was just like being at home. Everything was clean and the location is great. We hope to return next year and have that relaxing vacation."
