Year Round Downtown Luxury Waterfront Starboard Condo

Bedrooms 1
Space 550 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Queen Bdrm + Q sofa bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Built in 2006 on the site of a downtown fishing Co-Op, the Back Bay Cottage has three rental condo units. This unit, 'Starboard' is a 1 Queen bedroom/1 bath (sleeps 2)(new a/c for 2014) with a large covered deck, pier & float right on the water looking out at the harbor.

With limited kitchen facilities (no oven), this location is so close to over 30 restaurants, delis and coffee shops as well as all the downtown shops, marinas, and boat tours that you'll never need that oven.

Not only convenient, its quiet too - next to the Chowder House, a block away from the footbridge - everything is close by.

The Back Bay Cottage was designed to imitate the 1890's look of a 'Gentleman's Cottage'. The owners have duplicated that look inside with charming bead-board detail and European antiques.

We provide all linens, towels, paper products, condiments, a 'welcome' basket and some complimentary wine & coffee.

Starboard shares a dock & float with the two other units. Not for large boats because you have to fit beneath the footbridge, it's perfect for canoes, kayaks and dinghys.

About Tony Seibert

I'm a property developer, she's a European antique dealer, and we're both ocean sailors. We combined our talents to build the Back Bay Cottage in 2006 and made it elegantly casual.

Tony Seibert purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tony Seibert chose Boothbay Harbor

We purchased an old restaurant on pilings over the inner harbor water; tore it down & built a state-of-the-art 1890's 'Gentleman's Cottage' in what we consider is the quintessential small Maine fishing village 'with amenties'.

What makes this condo unique

The location is perfect. Close enough to everything so that you don't need a car, but far enough away from the night life that you don't need to be forced to listen to the latest taste in live music.

A Favorite

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage and have stayed there twice now. A bit on the small side, but perfect for 2 people. Very neat and clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could want. We love to sit on the deck and watch the tide come and go right below our feet. And you can't find a better location. Just steps from town and from the foot bridge. Close to everything but on a quiet street. Lots of things to see in the area also, such as a beautiful botanical garden and less than an hour to Freeport and outlet shopping. Next visit to Boothbay, we will naturally stay there again.

Perfection on the Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the Starboard Cabin, we were immediately entranced with the beauty and comfort of our surroundings. The decor was impeccable, yet offered the warmth and comfort of home. The complimentary basket of goodies was the extra added touch that ensured perfection. Peace and serenity engulfed us as we sat on the deck overlooking the harbor's beauty. The location was superb in offering us so many options within walking distance, although we didn't even have to leave the coziness of the cabin to enjoy our vacation. The owners were delightful and extremely gracious hosts. We are looking forward to a return trip to the Starboard Cabin in the near future. It was truly a "little piece of Heaven"....

Owner's Response: Thank you Tara, Your " little piece of heaven" is precisely the way we describe Boothbay Harbor to our friends. We live in a resort community in the gorgeous Colorado mountains, yet we come here for our serenity & respite. Tony

Maine at its Best

  • 5 of 5

The Starboard Cabin was better than expectations and everything was just perfect. The small apartment is decorated perfectly making your stay more than comfortable. The view from both the living room and the deck is great and a constant reminder that you are in Booth Bay. We were within walking distance to everything in town, including the best restaurant "Ports of Italy".

Lovely Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week in Boothbay Harbor while staying at the Starboard Condo. The condo was even prettier than the pictures and very comfortable and cozy. You are literally right on the Harbor with the water lapping at the base of the deck during high tide. The deck chairs are very comfortable and we spent a few hours each day just soaking up the harbor activity with all the accompanying sights, sounds and smells. Starboard Condo is just the loveliest little spot to relax and unwind and we will definitely be returning next summer!

Owner's Response: Thank you Julie. Per your request I've booked the same week for you next year with our 5% 1st year repeater discount. Glad you & Todd enjoyed it so much! For 2015 we're adding a Kuerig coffee maker, more towel storage, some stools for the galley, & a few other amenities. Best, Tony

Eddie and I wanted a romantic getaway week from our urban life. We found it in your beautifully decorated starboard cabin. Your English antiques mixed with the original local art created a delightful ambiance, and the location was perfect - close to restaurants but far enough away from the night life so not to be noisy. We'll be back next summer for sure. - Rachel

anniversary couple

  • 4 of 5

our Starboard condo was just like in the pictures. very lovely with beautiful furniture. it is perfectly comfortable for a couple and within walking distance to all the shops in town. we enjoyed sitting on the deck looking out and relaxing. if you like to sleep in, you will sometimes get awakened to weed wacking next door, but otherwise, mostly peaceful. the grill was great for barbecuing hamburgers. the fridge was the perfect size for a few drinks, snacks and breakfast food. I would really recommend taking in a show at the Carousel Music Theater which is located right next to the Chamber of Commerce. Kayaking in the river was great fun too.
