Property description

Portside is a luxury condo with the charm of a cottage on the ground floor of the 3-unit Back Bay Cottage, built in 2006. We are next to the Chowder House and kayak and bike rentals and just one block from the footbridge. The cottage is in the heart of the harbor and yet you will find tranquility and privacy inside. Over thirty coffee shops and restaurants and numerous shops are within an easy walking distance, including many places open year round.

Portside shares a dock and float with the other two Back Bay Cottage units and has its own deck on the water’s edge. Comforts include state-of-the-art kitchen and appliances, gas fireplace, gas grill, flat screen TVs, a large video collection, wine cooler, iPod stereo, Wi-Fi and free reserved parking. All linens, towels, paper products and basic condiments provided.

Please ask about our website for more details on Back Bay Cottage, information on the history of the Boothbay Region, restaurant, shopping & entertainment recommendations, information on activities in the region, including walks right from our door, scenic drives, boat trips & day trips, practical information that may be useful during your stay, and much more!

Rental rates are subject to 9% Maine sales tax. All other fees (cleaning, etc.) are included except for a fully refundable $500 security deposit. We take a 30% non-refundable deposit to hold the reservation and the remainder (plus security deposit) is payable four weeks before your arrival.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

30% deposit due at booking. Full refund for cancellations 6 months or more before the rental start date. For cancellations within 6 months of arrival, the 30% deposit will not be refunded unless the property is rented for the identical term or longer and only once payment has been received by the new guest. For cancellations within 1 month of arrival, the full amount will have been paid and is not refundable unless the property is rented for the identical term or longer and only once payment has been received by the new guest. I highly recommended purchasing travel insurance that will reimburse your rental payments should you have a family or medical emergency and be unable to travel.

Car: Recommended

Boothbay Harbor is a small town on the coast of Maine with a year-round population of just over 2,000 people that was established as a fishing camp and whose economy and whose spirit are linked to the fishing industry to this day. Boothbay draws more and more visitors each year, in the summer season, for the fall foliage and to a steadily increasing extent, in the off season months. The town offers numerous boat excursions including trips to nearby islands and whale watching and deep sea fishing tours, historical sites, a world-class botanical garden, an aquarium, numerous shops and art galleries, a network of hiking trails, sea kayaking, sailing, while not losing sight of its small town New England traditions. And of course the seafood cannot be matched anywhere in the world (and believe me, I’ve tried!)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay Harbor, ME, USA:
Although I just purchased this home at the end of 2010, I have been vacationing in Boothbay my entire life (since the age of three weeks) and my family has been vacationing in the area since 1914, owning property in the region and spending summers here since the 1930s. Whether this is your first time in the region or you have been coming for years, I hope you enjoy your stay to the fullest and discover why this place is so special to me and my family.
