This beautiful and meticulously maintained cottage comfortably sleeps 8 with an updated, classy Maine decor and offers great sunsets across nearby islands. Check our website by clicking on the link below. It is located on a quiet cove and named for the osprey that soar above looking for fish. It is 4 scenic miles from downtown Boothbay Harbor, an adorable Maine village full of great shops, restaurants, bars and ice cream. The cottage is a fresh, quiet Maine getaway minutes from all kinds of fun activities, a dream vacation spot! It's a mile to the amazing Maine Botanical Gardens! Located at the end of a private road on beautiful Sawyers Island (accessible by car! No boat needed!) in Boothbay, Maine, it sits ten feet from the ocean. Recently renovated, the cottage is light and airy and offers lots of privacy. Unlike many Maine cottages it is fully equipped with all of the amenities you would need and want including hi-speed wireless internet and cable. It has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with ocean views and is thoughtfully furnished with 100% cotton sheets, fresh new towels and new mattresses that are incredibly comfortable (this is so important to us when we travel too!). The grounds are perfect for those lobster cook outs and heated croquet games. This cottage and setting is the exact setting you've been dreaming of and the dock has provided our own children with their private star gazing spot, try it.
The large master bedroom has a queen size bed, high-end reading lights and private sitting area (we all need to escape now and then...). The cottage has a dock and float (with swim ladder) to make kayaking, looking at the seals or picnicking on the islands and water sports an easy pleasure. The dock is accessible by boat at quarter tide or above and flats out for part of the tide cycle. For boaters there is even a mooring included with the cottage! Cozy up infront of the gorgeous wood stove and there is a heating unit as well. The Boothbay Region offers a wide variety of summer activities and diversions and is near great shopping in Freeport and LL Bean. Portland is an easy hour and 15 minute drive from Boothbay. The ferry to Monhegan Island leaves from Boothbay and is a favorite day trip. Camden and Rockport are also easy and fun day trips from the house. It is a destination vacation spot for those in the know looking for a quiet relaxing time.

About the owner: I am a recently widowed retiree (but not 'over the hill or so our kids tell me anyway), who grew up in Maine and have fulfilled our dream of retiring home to Maine! This cottage was our family cottage and we raised our children with summers here (this is a photo of myself and our new granddaughter, Norah). I am from Southwest Harbor, on Mount Desert Island and come from a long line of sea captains who resided on Cranberry Island. So I understand the beauty of Maine and know much of what couples and friends are seeking in a vacation. I live in the Boothbay area and am available whenever you need but I am an unobtrusive home owner! I hope you come and enjoy the magic of Osprey Watch!
Why the Owner Chose Boothbay, ME, USA:
This is a stunning, private and quiet setting on desirable Sawyers Island (accessible by car). It is near the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, the unique Trevett Country Store, yet not far from 'downtown Boothbay Harbor'. There are many opportunities for walking, photography and kayaking from our float. We are surrounded by islands and there are many seals on the ledges just off this setting. You will hear them barking at night.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views are always interesting and vary during the day as the cottage faces southwest. Evening sunsets can be spectacular and there is a good deal of boat traffic across the head of the cove - both tour boats from the harbor and local fishing boats.
