About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The RETREAT COTTAGE is a very special spot. The fireworks display on the fourth of July is right out front in Boothbay Harbor. It is a tiny cottage perched on the rocks overlooking Boothbay Harbor. Built for one or two guests. Peace and quiet are in abundance. Staying in the RETREAT cottage is very much like staying in a boat. The ceilings are very low so folks over 6 feet may not be comfortable in the main room. The kitchen is tiny but all you need for light cooking. Most of your time will be spent in the chairs out front. The view includes ocean on 3 sides, Burnt Island Light, Cuckolds Light, Squirrel Island, Mouse Island and a steady parade of boats of all kinds. The sunsets are absolutely amazing! Spruce Point Inn is just down the road and offers many wonderful amenities, such as pools, tennis courts,hot tub, a spa and a wonderful restaurant. There are walking trails all through the woods behind the Inn. Boothbay Harbor region offers activities of kinds. The Chamber of Commerce Region guide will help you plan your days on Spruce Point. On the 4th of July and the last Wednesday in June the Harbor lights up with fireworks and the RETREAT has a front row seat. You can be as busy as you like while Boothbay Harbor or spend your days in the chairs in front of the cottage enjoying the boats going by and some of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen. Treat yourself to a vacation you'll never forget.


This is a place to relax and enjoy ' Maine, the way life should be.' A vacation at the RETREAT COTTAGE is one you will always remember and want to revisit year after year. Bring your good books, your kayaks and your comfortable clothes and leave that busy life behind for a bit. There is no phone in the cottage so please bring a cell phone if you need a phone on your vacation.One other word of caution....the cottage is very small and the ceiling is low. If you are over 6'1 you may not be comfortable indoors.
