  • A Perfect Place to Stay in Boothbay Harbor

    "We thought the location was ideal and the shady deck was always cool and comfortable, great for having a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine and reading a book in the late afternoon. The combination of seclusion and nearness to the town was fantastic. As far as the cottage was concerned we found it to be comfortable, clean, well outfitted, and very charming. In short we loved every minute of our stay. Very highly recommended."

  • Perfect Maine Getaway

    "Just got back from our stay at the Weathered Gray Cottage. What a great spot! My wife and I have an eight-month-old baby, so we're beholden to feeding and nap schedules. Serious excursions from the cottage up and down the coast were not an option. That was fine. We enjoyed cooking out and eating at the picnic table, strolling to town with our dog, having a glass of wine or a cup of coffee on the wonderful porch. We lived outside the whole week. I think my posterior wore a groove in the porch rocker. Our golden retriever didn't want to come back to the city. The cottage is not directly on the water but you can see the harbor through breaks in the trees and the yard and porch get plenty of sun when you want it. At night all you hear is the wind in the leaves, the slop of water, and the muffled bong of a bell on a buoy out in the harbor. Perfect. I also appreciated the little touches that made for a pleasant stay—the ceiling fan for keeping things airy, the bookcase full of vacation reads, the kitchen knives that were actually sharp (we cooked a lot), and the comfortable cushions for the deck chairs. On top of all this comfort and convenience, we found the owners responsive and pleasant and the experience to be an excellent value generally. I should also mention that, for a place that accepts dogs and children (like ours), the house was spotless when we arrived. The cottage is smallish and somewhat old-fashioned (small bedrooms, wood paneling, older bathroom). Large parties looking for lots of individual privacy or those looking for ultra-modern, luxe accommodations may be disappointed but they certainly should not feel misled. It's an old cottage. That's the way they were made. The cottage is clean, well maintained, nicely decorated, and reasonably priced. We found it to be better than advertised and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The Weathered Gray Cottage recalled the best parts of our childhood vacations to Cape Cod only it is much better appointed. The location is also a plus. It's a very short drive to Port Clyde and pretty close to Rockland as well. If you go, you MUST try Waterman's Beach Lobster and Dorman's Dairy Dream in Thomaston (both are close and worth traveling to Maine to patronize). I'm recommending the Weathered Gray Cottage to the rest of our family and I think we'll stay there again in the future. Thanks to the owners for a memorable and restorative vacation"

  • Perfect place for our last "hurrah of summer"

    "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."

  • Third year in a row!

    "Well we just completed our 3rd straight September and are looking forward to our 4th at this wonderful location. Nat and Dorothy could not be more gracious to us. We feel as though we are now " locals" as we arrive each Labor Day weekend for a beautiful month of the peace and quiet of Searsport and Penobscot Bay. We spend our winters anticipating our time in Maine. Having dinner on the deck after an afternoon in the pool, walking in the state parks or exploring Belfast, Bar Harbor and Camden. The house is always impeccably clean when we arrive and everything is in top working order. I honestly cannot over emphasize how nice it is for us. We have travels many, many miles in our lives but This is our favorite place to just chill out for a month and enjoy the Bay and the wonderful weather."
