Look Out Over the Water from a Cottage in the Water

Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a delightful retreat, owned by an artist, which sits on posts in a quiet cove of the Sheepscot River. You can watch beautiful sunsets while sitting on the deck with a drink and a good book. We own two kayaks and two canoe which are available for cottage renters to use to paddle around Hodgdon Island or to explore the other islands nearby.

One of the best lobster rolls in the region is served at the lobster shack on our little island, where you can also buy milk and beer and pick up a New York Times. Two of the many hiking trails operated by the Boothbay Region Land Trust can be reached by foot from our front door. When you are tired of boiling your own lobster at home, there is a short drive to the many restaurants and shops of Boothbay Harbor. We are less than a mile from the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, one of the top tourist attractions in Maine.

I loved it

  • 5 of 5

I have been looking for a very long time to find a place like this. It was so relaxing and calming having the ocean fall and rise right below us. It gave me the old cottage feel that I remember growing up with. I would definitely recommend this to people and families that want to relax and play on the water. They have a tv, but no cable. They do have wi fi if you are needing to stream something for entertainment, but it is really a great place to forget about that stuff and just sit and relax and read or play games to connect with your family. If you are looking for a luxury cottage this is not the place for you. It is rustic, but very clean and comfortable. Because you are not on regular city services you do have to be efficient with your use of the water services, but that is not to say you cannot have a shower each day, you just can't leave the taps running all the time. Enjoy this gem of a place, we sure did. The owner, Iris, is a very pleasant person and makes a huge effort to make sure you enjoy your stay.

A little piece of heaven on earch

  • 5 of 5

We will be going back to this idyllic location for our third time. If you love the water, and treasure the idea of watching the moon set as you lie in bed in the morning - this place is for you. The kayaking is fabulous and the water views from the deck are ever-changing. We practically lived on the beautiful deck, which was a wonderful place to entertain relatives and friends who were also vacationing in the area.

A great place for water recreation, sightseeing, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We treasure our week at this cottage every summer. It's about as close as you can get to living on the water without actually being in a boat. It's only a matter a steps to a canoe or kayak for a restful paddle around the island or a more ambitious expedition; or you can jump in the car and be in downtown Boothbay Harbor in a few minutes. We enjoy our meals on the deck over the water and love to watch the sun set over the cove from the big picture window inside the cozy cottage. Or you can just relax on the deck and watch the herons, ospreys, and the occasional kayaker or lobster boat. This is a little gem on one of the most scenic spots on the Maine coast.
