Why Alden Jordan, Karen Lea chose West Boothbay Harbor
This home has been in my family for 88 years. I have lived here all my life and enjoy living right on the ocean and close to downtown. I am an avid gardener and start all my plants from seedlings in my greenhouse and design different gardens each year. This property is perfect for families with pets and has lots of space to move around and explore.

Feels like home
This is the third year we have stayed in Alden and Karen's home and will be back again. Home is exactly as described and location is perfect. Walk to downtown and all shops and restaurants in 10 minutes or less.
If you like to eat in, the kitchen and amenities are top notch. The gardens and grounds are immaculate and relaxing to behold. The dock and kayaks are a bonus. The house is well laid out and we had several guests and visitors coming and going and we never felt crowded or cramped. Plenty of spots to relax and read your book. This is our favorite place and we love it here!
The home is beautiful. Views and gardens fantastic. Karen and Alden are gracious hosts. Best place to stay In Boothbay!. Will definitely be back.
Fantastic location, wonderful house!
We loved our week at Mill Cove and Karen and Alden were terrific hosts. We were a group of seven: four adults, three 4-year olds. Having the kayaks available was great and it is a super place to explore by kayak. The house very comfortable with every convenience and a huge kitchen which was a great gathering space. Fire pit for s'mores and lovely gardens to enjoy. It is only a short easy walk to the center of Boothbay Harbor and there are excellent restaurants and lovely shops. September was a great time to visit: perfect weather, not crowded with tourists and everything open. This house gets our highest recommendation!
Beautiful property, lovely hosts, smell of sea air, birdwatching haven
Thank you Karen and Alden for greeting us with blueberry cake, wine and the fixings for s'mores, creating such a wonderful haven, giving us tips and guidance on where to eat and what to see, and letting us bring our pups! We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent home and perfect hosts!
This was such a special vacation for our family and Alden and Karen did everything to make our stay extra special. Home is ON THE WATER. We swam, kayaked, and enjoyed the hot tub every day. Outdoor fire pit had wood provided for us (and s'more ingredients too!) We had small grandchildren with us but the upper deck had a nice gate and fence for safety. This home met all of our needs and more. Home was clean, comfortable, well appointed, with lovely views. Since we had 9 family members, there was ample room to seek privacy, if needed. Quick walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor. Loved the well equipped kitchen for our community meal times. Thank you, Alden and Karen, for a memorable family vacation.
Lovely vacation spot in Boothbay Harbor
The entire family enjoyed our stay; kayaking, fishing off the dock, and exploring the harbor town. Karen and Alden's home was absolutely perfect and they were wonderful hosts. We definitely hope to come back!
