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.

Fantastic location, wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent home and perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!

Simply Amazing, hated to leave

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing home with my brother and his wife for 2 nights. The house is absolutely amazing and has a beautiful kitchen that was big enough for all of us to cook in and had everything we could possibly need. We had dinner out on the porch that overlooked the water and the beautiful gardens that Karen and Alden planted. The lawns and gardens are lit up at night and look so pretty. We tried kayaking for the first time ever and are hooked. We loved that we could paddle around the cove and not worry about boat traffic. We especially loved the location and that we could walk to town any time we wanted and didn't have to worry about parking. The town is very nice with a lot of activity and places to eat at and shop. We only wish we had more time and hated to leave. This is the perfect place and we will definitely be back next year and stay for the entire week.
