"This is a stunning house, replete with incredible views and in a perfect location on a quiet Mid-Coast Maine peninsula. We were two families with young children, and we loved the size of the house and the multiple options of things to do in and around its immediate vicinity. We played on the climbing frame, swam, paddled, searched through tidal rock pools, watched the sun set, barbequed, and walked in the forest. We ran out of time so didn't get to do any bicycling or boating. The house is really well-equipped for guests, with a thoughtfully and comprehensively stocked kitchen. The owners are non-intrusive but immediately available for questions. All-in-all, a wonderful find, made more special by being welcomed in to this beautiful family home. We hope to come back again."

"We were awestruck with this place! Beautifully decorated with so many special touches that you just felt the warmth of love and family in every room. Very comfortable for us- 6 adults and 2 toddlers. Plenty of room, the home didn't lack for a thing, and it's so spacious and well-constructed with exposed beams, nice windows, big kitchen, dining room, nice bathrooms, sitting rooms, and the grounds are perfect for families with the swings, hammock, and sitting areas---all overlooking the cove. We felt like the luckiest people in the world to find this place!"

Perfect location with good support staff if needed.
"We rented Abby's Boothbay Harbor home for our 50th wedding anniversary destination event. We had 14 quests from throughout the U.S. flying in for the celebration. NO...the cottage does not hold sixteen people. Most were here for only three nights and we placed them at Brown's Wharf Inn for their stay.
The cottage has all of the amenities you could wish for and is beautifully decorated. There are cheaper rentals in Boothbay, but they do not compare to the attention to detail that you find at Portside.
Being from Florida we appreciated the fireplace in the morning probably the most. The kitchen has everything a chef would want. We don't cook when we come to Maine so we did not get the oven dirty. Another nice touch was the presence of the various household products that we usually have to go out and purchase.
We will book this property for our future visits to Boothbay Harbor. We usually come up every two years."

"A lovely apartment, cozy, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Just a short walk through the woods until you arrive upon your very own private piece of paradise on earth, the Rocky Maine Coast. It doesn’t get any better than to relax, watch the waves lap up on the rocks and the birds fly by. Lucy and John are gracious hosts that charge a reasonable fee to enjoy their property. What more could you ask for? Needless to say, we are looking forward to our next visit."
