  • A real Maine Cottage

    "Bill, the owner, has a perfect Maine get-away in the woods and near the ocean. The cottage is modern enough yet simple enough as well. The cottage has lovely windows everywhere...so much great light. The wood burning fireplace was superb on cool October mornings and evenings. We would return and rent again because we were very pleased with our rental decision."

  • Great secluded cabin and close to the fun

    "We had a great stay in the lodge with our one year old daughter. The home is comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfortable and the large deck in great shape. The owner was nearby and able to answer questions and was very friendly and warm. He takes great care of the home as well as the surrounding area. This lodge is great because it's totally secluded (our daughter slept better here than in Brooklyn!) yet it's only about a 10 minute ride from all that Boothbay has to offer. The only upgrade we could think of would be a bigger comfy couch that we could all curl up on together to watch a movie."

  • Amazing Venue for Any Occasion!

    "The Smith House is one of those magical properties with stunning views all-around, rolling green lawn space and endless sanctuaries of natural beauty! We just held our wedding ceremony and celebration at the Smith House and could not have picked a more beautiful spot for such a special occasion. Out-of-town guests stayed in the Smith House, camped on the property and stayed at the Squire Tarbox Inn up the road. The ability to utilize all of the property's stunning backdrops - the barn, the ocean view, and the salt water pond lake view made for a celebration like no other!! We hope to be able to return and enjoy this quintessential Maine property for some of future anniversaries!"

  • 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"
