Very private, quiet, and scenic. Spacious and big fan of long deck. Very homey and cozy indoors. They had conveniences that many people do not have at home. A great vacation experience

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here the end of September, first of August 2016. Me and my husband had a great time in boothbay and enjoyed having a quite place to come back to at the end of the day. Comfortable beds, had fun sitting out on the deck reading. Took walks to the Ocean edge. We even took the canoe out that they have under the house and went canoeing one day. Beautiful place to come and visit I highly recommend it.

A rustic, quiet place

  • 4 of 5

Nice and quiet rustic home under large trees. We loved to watch and listen to the squirrels around, and saw owls and ospreys. Kayaking on the pond close to the house was perfect, and swimming even better - the kids spent hours in the clean water which, as neighbors from the community told us, was unusually warm this summer. The house is cozy and functional; stable wifi. We recommend walking over the Indian trails to the East Boothbay general store for breakfast or great sandwiches.

A Cabin in the Balsams

  • 5 of 5

With only the smell of the balsam trees, the sound of the breeze in those trees and the birds in their lofty perches to touch your senses, you would never know you were 10-12 minutes from Booth Bay Harbor Town Center and its bustling crowds of tourists. Truly a place to kick back and relax, w/o the self-imposed distractions of laptops and tablets that we purposefully left home and cell phones locked in the car glove box to use only for emergencies. How about living life as we used to enjoy it reading the newspapers, and a good book (that the cottage has plenty of) and lots of conversation over coffee at breakfast. Not bad!! The cottage has everything you need to enjoy a week or a month within easy reach and well organized.; Its beds are comfortable albeit somewhat difficult to make up and the cottage is well maintained and very clean. Its not a Best Western or a Holiday Inn, etc., its a great little home away from home; a wonderful place to get away and smell the balsams!! P.S. the Lobster at Robinsons is the best. The ferry trip and day on Monhegan Island with the short hike to the cliffs on the Eastern side of the island is not to be missed.

rustic retreat close to town

  • 5 of 5

cottage was quintessential Maine - very comfortable for a family of 4. kitchen is small but we were able to make breakfasts and the occasional dinner. the view of the ocean from the deck with the visiting hummingbirds was wonderful. we went to the lake, barrett park to swim, and walked to Linekin Bay resort. very close to town. having wifi made the tweens happy and the whole vibe was one of relaxing and decompressing. a great stay!

Cozy Rustic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we expected. It has a cozy rustic interior with a living room great for watching TV or relaxing with a book. The ocean is close by and just steps away from the cottage's stairs is a clean sandy pond that is great for kids. It was there we met our friendly neighbors. Also, it is not far from shopping and world class minature golf.
