"Love this house so much! This is our second year. Its like stepping back into our childhood homes in Maine. So warm and comfortable. From cozy fires in the "barn" to cookouts on the porch we always feel like we are "home". The house is so welcoming. We hope to be back next year."

"My family of 9 had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the Farmhouse for a week in June. This was not enough time to stay at this absolute gem of a place. The Saltwater Farmhouse as some family members said is like stepping into a "fairy tale". Upon arrival there was fresh fruit and flowers on the table. This was such a nice surprise. The house has more character then you can imagine or even to put in words. The rooms and Beds are comfy. The kitchen is great for cooking. The front room is well lit and perfect for visiting with family and for reading a book. The yard is magical. Chasing fireflies was a family favorite. The pAtio is perfect for grilling and watching the sunrise and sunset. The outdoor shower is a great addition. The location of saltwater is ideal for families who want to be close to the bigger cities but who don't mind driving a little bit through beautiful farm land and coastal scenery to get there. The house is located a bit of a drive off the main highway but it is a drive that I miss everyday since leaving there. This made the house even more special. The small towns and general stores close to the house became favorites of ours. It was a highlight to visit The Port Clyde General Store Each Day. The house will forever have a special place in our hearts and we plan to return more often then we ever thought we would. The Lang Family are perfect to work with. They were very attentive and responded quickly to all of my questions. Even though I have never met them, they feel somewhat like family. I can't thank them enough for sharing their wonderful place."

"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!"
