About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Morning Coffee and Sunrise views with lobster boats peacefully working out front, ahhh another day at Crestcliff.

You will love the Incredible views of Boothbay Harbor from the covered porch of our rustic family cottage. This early 1900's cottage has a mix of rustic charm and modern updates to make your relaxing possible. On a quiet private road that sits next to a shared community dock for fishing, or to access the water with your kayak or boat that you bring and keep on our private mooring.

You walk up a flight of stairs to the first floor wrapping covered porch, and can access the kitchen or dining room from French doors. Adjoining the dining room and antiqued dining table your have an open archway to enter the living room which is quite large and can easily accommodate the occupants of a full house. Great place for kids who delight in playing on the rocks, or fish from the dock. There is a gas grill on the porch bordering a grassy side yard with flowers and water views and sun. Townsend Gut is to the view left, Boothbay Harbor is straight ahead and scenic Mouse Island is in front moving to ocean views and Lighthouses, Burnt Island and Squirrel Island completes the view.

The kitchen faces the rear of the house, and has room to prepare meals in Maine style with rustic pine walls. The kitchen is dated, Realtor's call this charm, we like it and trust you will. Bathroom is on the same floor, and updated with fan and heat yet carries the same charm. There is the full bed and bedroom down the hall. The other 4 bedrooms are upstairs, all with water views.

During your stay, enjoy Boothbay Harbor's wonderful art galleries, shopping, and restaurants, a short drive. Enjoy yourself with activities including renting a boat or kayak, or join a boat cruise or whale-watching excursion. Go deep-sea fishing, hike a nature trail, or just relax in the serene natural setting of coastal Maine. Southport Island is connected to Boothbay by a unique swinging bridge over Townsend Gut and is approximately three hours from Boston, three hours from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, one hour from Camden and Rockland, as well as just 45 minutes from Bath, Brunswick, and Freeport for the LL bean fans out there.
