"My wife and I and another couple spent a wonderful week in the Lodge...wife and I had been in the area two years before and served as guides...Lodge is perfect and huge and very clean. Pat, the cleaning lady kindly provided us with a vase of flowers from her garden and a wonderful home-baked blueberry loaf cake...traveled to nearby Maine Prison store, featuring inmate woodwork at very reasonable prices...also, Morse's Sauerkraut retail store for their weekend brunch, featuring one of the best hash we've ever had. Dined in Damarascotta at Crissy's for terrific breakfasts and King Eider for dinner and lunch and always had oysters on half-shell...oysters in this region of the country are the best...clean, tender, opened so that liquor remains in shell and always on ice. Also had our share of lobsters...Chap, the owner was wonderful and agreed that my wife and I could stay an additional three days to avoid crowds during the Papal visit in Philadelphia for an additional fee. All told, it was a great trip to Maine and wife and I are already thinking about returning to the Lodge in two years. As noted in previous review, pictures don't do this property justice. It's terrific!"

"I am going to sum this up. Breathtaking, beautiful location on Swanlake. Unexpected stocked home with everything to offer! We felt completely at home and did not want to leave. The views throughout the home were endless. Rain or Shine, we had an amazing time. Coming from a family who is all about palm trees and blue oceans, we are looking to come back again this summer. The most relaxing fun week. We fished everyday catching an array of different types of fish off the canoe and kayaks and directly off the beach. We didn't leave the house for one day except to go to the gun range. The weather was perfect although it rained 2 days out of 6, we still found comfort inside with the stocked kitchen appliances fireplace and views. The house is maintained with every amenity. The grounds are beautiful with flowers, sandy beach, fresh decking and a hose outside to rinse off before entering the home. The owners are sweet and allowed us to stay 2 extra days. I love the fact we were able to use the washer and dryer before we left. I cant say enough it was fantastic!"

"Everything was perfect when we arrived, including replacement of down pillows and comforter to accommodate a severe feather allergy. As frequent guests to Spruce Point inn in the past we know the Booth Bay Harbor area very well and have always said "someday we will stay at Retreat Cottage" but since we could never plan far ahead it was always booked. This year we are moving to the West Coast so this was our last Maine vacation - we never dreamed the cottage would be available but it was.
The cottage is small - perfect for two adults and is so peaceful. We started and ended each day sitting in the chairs out front - coffee in the morning; wine in the evening. The kitchen is small but thanks to our manager, Sue we learned of Eventide and were able to pick up some very nice cheeses, meats and breads for anti pasto We also stopped at the York Farmer's market on the way up and got some meats and veggies. It was easy to whip up a gourmet meal a couple of days - and the others we headed to Muscongus Bay Trading Company in Round Pond which is a long time favorte.
Having a chance for an evening sail on our last night made the entire trip perfect.
Thank you Susan for helping to make this happen and to our host John Druce who elected to keep the Retreat Cottage and maje u available for special memories."

"Our family of 4 stayed at this really wonderful place. The home was clean, and well equipped with all the amenities needed for a wonderful vacation. This was our first trip to Boothbay, and we really picked the right place to stay. Walking distance to everything we needed in downtown. Driving options for other sites to see. Paula and Liz offered wonderful customer service. We were pleased with everything. Thank you Paula!"
