About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is an awesome 100+ yr old home with an adorable guest cottage. The owners are Interior Designers and underwent a 2 year renovation after purchasing the home. The house is decorated in a very casual cottage style using the soft colors of sea glass. As you enter the bright colorful kitchen you are immediately relaxed by the warmth and comfort of the home. The kitchen is open to the dining room which seats 6. There is a den with flat screen TV and reading area with a complete wall of windows to enjoy the beautiful Maine sunshine. In this area, there is also a small game table to enjoy various board games or a checkers challenge. Sometimes we use this for an extra dining area if needed. The master bedroom (king with TV)is downstairs and has a full bath with Jacuzzi tub. There is an additional 1/2 bath downstairs in the laundry room. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms (2 full with TV and 1 twin bunks)with a full bath. There is also a den with a full sleeper sofa. The den has a TV and high speed internet access with wifi. An outside large deck is accessible from the upstairs den as well as the side lawn. Enjoy the harbor views, a great book or evening drinks with your family and friends. Its also a great place to have an outdoor lobster picnic!!

The garden cottage has a small covered porch with a swing. Inside is a full bedroom (queen with TV), full bath(shower) and a small kitchenette. The cottage is ideal for a couple who wants some quiet time away from the house.

The house has a beautifully landscaped yard. Enjoy the numerous flowers and shrubs with something in bloom at all times. Neighbors constantly stop to comment and admire the garden. There are even blueberry bushes on the side for you to pick from and eat!!

There are sidewalks all the way to town, so you can enjoy a nice walk around the harbor to shops, restaurants, churches or the footbridge which takes you across the harbor. Or if you prefer to ride, the free trolley stops just across the street in Brown's parking lot.

We own The Southern Charmer Interiors and love to travel and to renovate old homes. Sea Glass is one of our favorites!!

MARK MULLIS purchased this house in 2003

Why MARK MULLIS chose Boothbay Harbor

We fell in love with Boothbay Harbor after a visit in the 1990's. We returned in 2003 to look for a vacation home and found this gem which was to be demolished. We couldn't let that happen. It was just perfect!! Beautiful views, wonderful gardens, great had everything we wanted. And we loved the challenge of the renovation. Also, we could walk to the lobster dock, buy dinner off the boat and bring it home to cook!

What makes this house unique

Our home is very family friendly.It is ideal for small family reunions and groups. It has several quiet spaces where you can get away if you prefer. The separate cottage is perfect for in-laws or a bridal suite. Everyone seems to enjoy the lawn as something is always blooming. It is just perfect to admire or cut flowers to bring inside. We have movies and games as well for the kids. We love to walk just down the street to the Lobster dock...purchase fresh from the boats..and return home to enjoy a Lobster feast on the outdoor deck. YUM YUM!! Its also close enough for walks into town for shopping or dining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" If we return to Boothbay with a group we would definetly rent the Sea Glass Cottage again. I think the deck on the second floor was my favorite part to eat lobster, have drinks and watch the sunset. It is a beautiful home." Lori, Butte, Montana

"The house was fabulous and definitely exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely a slice of New England. The views from the deck were were pleasant and relaxing. It's the perfect place to relax, eat and drink with friends. The house made all of us feel a warmth and kinship that won't soon be forgotten. It was actually a bargain. We would love to spend another week !" Doug-Butte. MT

A beautiful, quaint cottage, very comfortable, felt like home. Thank you, we had a special time here and will always remember the Sea Glass cottage with fond memories. Bob and Diane

We loved the Sea Glass Cottage! It was very comfortable, had all the things we needed to cook with, the bed was very comfortable, our bathroom was nice, and it was very convenient to have laundry facilities. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the "sun room" for visits with friends and planning the day's adventures and the upstairs deck, which was the scene of some wonderful picnic meals. It was also nice to have computer service-only complaint (very small one) was that there was no WiFi.

The location is great! It is just far enough from the center of activities to be quiet but at the same time is close enough to be an easy walk and trolley ride to almost anywhere in Boothbay Harbor. Wonderful restaurants are only a stones throw away, as is the Lobster Wharf, where you can buy your own lobster to take home and cook. There are lots of things to do in Boothbay Harbor and it was great to be staying right at the edge of the activities!

Would we go back to the Sea Glass Cottage? One word--Absolutely!

Absolutely loved this home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly a gem! You can tell that its owners are interior designers, as everywhere you look there is a touch of something special – – a vase, a pillow, some unique piece of art or antique. The space was perfect for our family. My niece and her husband and their three boys fit perfectly in the upstairs three bedrooms, while my nephew and his wife and their toddler were perfectly situated in the charming cottage just a few feet away. And I luxuriated in the master bedroom on the first floor. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals, and the table served us well when we pulled up extra chairs. We had friends come to visit, and we went upstairs on the outdoor patio where there is a large table where the 11 of us enjoyed a picnic on a sunny day. Perhaps my favorite room in the house was the large sunroom furnished with white sofas on either end and large comfortable chairs - all overlooking the lovely flower gardens which were in bloom. And it seems that there were games or puzzles in almost every drawer we opened in the sunroom! Owner Mark was very responsive to every question that I had and could not have been nicer! The home is ideally located across the street from Brown‘s Wharf and the foot bridge which offers a short walk into the major shopping area. Perfect! The hidden driveway was wonderful, as the kids could play outside without fear of traffic. And they even provided sidewalk chalk which we all enjoyed as we “decorated” the driveway with our artwork. We absolutely loved this charming 100-year-old home!

One of our favorite places to stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property are very kind and the home is tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and baking or steaming your own lobsters.

Because the home is within walking distance from downtown Boothbay it is really in the best location. It is away from the busiest parts of BBH but close enough to take a stroll into town or a quick drive to Hannafords for groceries.

The beds are very comfortable and the cottage that is available on the property is always fantastic for guests and family members.

Highly recommend this property.

Beautiful Home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This stunning house provided my family with such a memorable vacation. It was spacious and had such a relaxing feel for my husband and 2 young kids. A perfect house for a large family or multiple families. The location was prime and allowed us to take several mini-trips around the area. It's walkable to the main center for shopping and eating as well as a quick drive to the grocery store. Yard was nice and big for playing games with the kids. Overall, we were beyond pleased with this house and would definitely stay again!

Comfortable, light-filled house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and gardens with lots of places to sit both inside and out. Especially loved the upper deck. Cottage was as cute as can be and perfect for my son and his mate who liked to sleep in.

Beds were comfortable, water pressure was a treat. Games and puzzles were a bonus.

Perfect location! Quiet. Easy walk into town, but lots of eating places across the road, too.

We had a wonderful week with our children and their significant others. Would definitely return someday (but would bring some brighter lamp bulbs for reading).

Absolutely wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are beautifully appointed. The owners are very attentive and great to work with, both before and during the stay. The location of the home is close enough to town that you can walk across a footbridge spanning the harbor to visit the shops and restaurants, and yet you're far enough away that you can relax in the house without the worry of a lot of vehicular traffic disturbing your evening. We had a great week in Boothbay Harbor and would come back to Mark and Steve's home every time!

We were lucky enough to have a White Christmas while staying at this adorable home. The owners more than accommodated our requests. The home was clean, spacious and comfortable. Very convenient location to all that Boothbay Harbor offers. Please consider this home for your summer and winter stays in the area!
