About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The views from this custom designed cottage are some of the nicest you will find. We are situated just high enough to provide protection from the ocean, but close enough to hear the waves and surf at all times of the day. Being so close to the water, the feeling in the cottage is a lot like being on a large boat. THERE IS NO ROAD and NO POWER LINES between OUR COTTAGE AND THE OPEN OCEAN. You have an unrestricted and very private view of the open Atlantic and surrounding islands and harbors from our deck. This is hard to find, even in Maine. Nobody walking or driving on a road between you and the sea? Priceless! Complete privacy and isolation from neighbors too. Our cottage was redesigned and fully remodeled in 2011, including all new bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen. There is also a new deck that is perfect for relaxing and taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean. The cottage features two queen sized beds, one on each floor, with access to a bathroom on each floor as well. There is also a queen sized sleeper couch on the main level. Boothbay Harbor, with all it's charm, galleries, shopping and restuarants, is less than 10 minutes away, and Ocean point is right down the road. Our cottage is situated on a little known oceanfront drive in between. This area is one of the best kept secrets around and offers views and ocean walks as nice as you will find, but with far fewer people. (see our map for location) Imagine yourself on our deck with a sliver of moonlight coming across the Atlantic and right to you!

    Please use this or the house icon to locate and zoom on our cottage location.

  • B

    Boothbay Harbor View on map

    Try eating at our favorite restuarant, the Thistle Inn. Make reservations early as it seats very quickly. McSeagulls and the Tug Boat Inn are always pleasers. Boothbay harbor is one of the nicest harbors in the Mid Coast area, with all types of shopping and activities. Whale watches here are great because of the number of whales in the area, and the short distance to go see them. Hello whale, goodbye dramamine!

  • C

    Ocean Point View on map

    "Dogs on Parade" boulevard, Max loves to strut his stuff here. Great views and a long walk along a coast lined with quintessential Maine homes and cottages.

  • D

    East Boothby General Store View on map

    Great espresso and food (the best pulled pork sandwich and pizza in the area!) plus lots of great knick-knacks, imported snacks, and soft-serve, too! Wonderful atmosphere and great location, a local legend.

  • E

    Linekin Bay Preserve View on map

    For hikers or trail runners this little hidden gem is only a short distance from our door. Part of the trail even runs along the shore. It is very beautiful and you will probably not see anyone else. several miles can be hiked within this preserve alone. Check the maps in our cottage for directions to several more great hiking preserves in the area, most all having significant portions right along the water.

  • F

    Atlantic Edge Lobster View on map

    Stop in here for fresh Lobster "Off the boat"

  • G

    Little River Bridge View on map

    This stone dam is not shown on this map, but it enables you to do a very nice loop walk from our cottage down along the quaint Little River Harbor, with all its lobster boats and sail boats. This is a real hidden spot on this part of the coast, many people do not even know it's down here, and that means quiet in the evenings and a lot fewer cars.

  • H

    Porter Preserve View on map

    Great hiking for all age groups, and wonderfu views along the river.

  • I

    Ovens Mouth Preserve View on map

    The best preserve in the area. Beautiful strolls along rugged cliffs and quiet inlets. Great for all age groups.

  • J

    Monhegan Island View on map

    Step back in time to this wonderful island where artists and hardcore lobsterman abound. Do not miss an opportunity to go out to Monhegan and do some hiking along the many miles of beautiful and rugged trails. An iconic location and worth the trip every time. Ferries run daily out of Boothbay Harbor.

  • K

    Pemoquid Point View on map

    The most photographed lighthouse in Maine and a great destination for the day. Rugged coastline and usually some sea life (seals, etc...) A great spot.


Our cottage is ideally situated for runners and hikers. There are many miles of beautiful roads and trails right from our door. Kayaking is also wonderful here, (both ocean kayaking and in the many protected bays and rivers) with more places to paddle than you could explore in a lifetime!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose East Boothbay, ME, USA:
We moved to the Northeast from Minnesota a few years ago. After many trips to the coast searching for the perfect location, we settled on the Boothbay area because of its rugged beauty, great amenities, and superb central location along the coast. The town of Boothbay Harbor is just five minutes away with many fine restaurants and great shopping. Whale watches, harbor cruises and a great botanical garden are availble all summer long. Ocean point with it's wonderful views is just up the road. The best part of our location is that it is a bit of a local secret. We have dramatic views, lots of great walks, great places to kayak, and all off the beaten tourist path, yet with everything you need to make a complete Maine vacation close at hand.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
One of the best parts of staying at our cottage are the great opportunities for wildlife viewing. Although we can't promise what you will see from our deck, we have observed all of the following in the last year alone; Minke whales, Finn whales, seals, eagles, ospreys, porpise, and every type of sea bird and duck imaginable! Perhaps the very best part of staying at our cottage is what it doesn't have, and that is a road between you and the sea, and lots of people. No roads or powerlines come between you and the ocean, and that means no cars, no people walking past, and no noise. Just you and the wide open Atlantic!
