  • came back for second year in a row for family vacation

    "we had such a great time last year that we came back for our family vacation again this August. The accommodations were perfect. The cabin is on a cove. We drank coffee on the deck and watched the sunrise over the ocean. We skipped rocks and collected shells during the day. At night, we grilled burgers and ate lobster under the stars. We used the kayaks to get to a secluded beach that the neighbors told us about. We used the place as a base camp to explore interior Maine and along the coast. It is an ideal location because it is very near lots of attractions, but distanced enough from the tourism and traffic that it provides a real escape and adventure. It is also unique in that the towns it is near are real towns and not just generic tourist towns. The cabin has two bedrooms, a warm and inviting living/ dining area and a kitchen with everything necessary to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The owners are kind and generous folks and that is obvious in our interactions with them as well as in the vibe of the home. It feels warm and welcoming. Highly recommended."

  • Very comfortable and centrally located

    "We had a delightful stay at Puffins Cove. Great amenities, comfortable beds, convenient location and great hospitality. Everything is especially clean, tidy and spacious. Also, the house is on a short dead end street which eliminates access/parking challenges. We would happily return again and would recommend this historic home to anyone visiting the area."

  • Sanctuary on the Sea

    "Just spent a week on Patti & Steve's lovely, clean family cottage. The cozy living room, comfortable bedrooms & well- equipped kitchen were just as expected. The screened on porch served as the main lounging place to watch the boats and birds in the harbor. The great blue heron, white egret, gulls and cormorants were excellent company. Frequent walks on the Reid State Park beaches provided "tranquility tonic" that continues to pay dividends each time we remember the sights, sounds and smell of the salt air. If this is what it's like to be in the Loony Bin, then please: lock me up!"

  • Listen to the tide come in right beneath your window!

    "This tiny cabin is right on the rocks with the tide coming in and out directly below the windows! It is a magical spot, all you can see is the ocean, rocks, islands and curve of the shore. The view is unbeatable! We were there just before "the season" started so it was wonderfully quiet. I imagine it would be kind of crazed in the high season, but what seaside spot isn't? Also, the cabin is kind of set apart by the rocks so it will always be quieter than the some of the surrounding houses. Clean, everything in working order. Very helpful interactions with the owner. You can bring your dog to the Lobster Dock in East Boothbay if you sit by the railing and ask first. Listen, the food there isn't that great but the location is unbeatable and the staff is nice! The fireplace is made of stone with giant conch shells embedded between them. Fragrant sea roses bloom along the quiet little road. The cabin is near Grimes Bay which is like a teeeny tiny beach where you can go swimming at medium and high tide. The cabin is little but perfect: two bedrooms (one is a bit awkward with a strangely built bunk bed but good for kids!) and a great little kitchen and little bathroom with a shower and cozy living room with a breathtaking view which I can't even describe! A little dining table with another table out on the cute deck (a barbecue is there, too). A short drive to East Boothbay for groceries and the farmer's market and just a little further on for Boothbay Harbor. I would go back in a heartbeat."
