About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full baths, Spacious kitchen

Lovingly named in honor of the lobstermen who once inhabited the property, Lobstermen’s Cottage is a cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage with a full and spacious kitchen. It includes all of the amenities, sleeps up to 7-8 people and offers a comfortable and laid back respite from the everyday. Nestled in Lobster Cove on the quiet East Side of Boothbay Harbor, peace, tranquility and life as it was meant to be await you.

Relax on the deck and take in the fresh, salty sea air or climb and explore the rocky coast that lies just steps from your door at Barrett’s Park Beach, where you can dig for clams, chase crabs or marvel at all the periwinkles. Collect nature’s treasures, kayak around the inlets, go for a swim and cool off…and we mean really cool off! Or just sit quietly, read a book, and take in the beauty that surrounds you.

Just a short walk across our bustling little harbor by way of the famous footbridge or even by trolley, lies our historic seaside town, where you can browse the many shops and boutiques, stroll through our art galleries, enjoy local, fresh caught seafood at one of our outstanding restaurants, or book an adventure on one of the many excursions offered. Whether it’s whale watching, sailing, charter fishing, viewing seals, puffins and lighthouses up close, or a trip to Monhegan Island, the list of activities is endless. Walk along the waterfront and enjoy an ice cream cone or take in the band concert on the library lawn. Learn about our ship-building heritage or listen to the “fish tales” of our colorful Boothbay natives while sampling some of our local micro brews.

Check out the Marine Aquarium or take the kids to the Railway Village. Enjoy a round (or two) of world class 18 hole golf at The Boothbay Country Club or try your hand at mini-golf. While here, spend some time at the spectacular 250 acre Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens or spend the day hiking one of the Boothbay Region Land Trust’s over 30 miles of hiking trails, open year-round to the public, free of charge. It’s a great way to take in the region’s natural scenic beauty. Speaking of scenic beauty, any visit to Boothbay Harbor wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Ocean Point in East Boothbay. Its beauty will truly take your breath away and is always recommended.

Our family has been here for many generations and we hope you will choose to stay with us. We’d like to make your vacation a memory to last a lifetime. Choosing to vacation in The Boothbay Harbor region will not disappoint. As we’ve always said, the worst part about coming here, is having to leave!

The great state of Maine isn’t called “Vacation land” for nothing!

If it’s family adventure you crave or the simple quiet pleasure of relaxing by the sea, visitors to the Boothbay Harbor Region will find plenty to do. Boothbay Harbor offers something for everyone. Come and enjoy watching enormous sailing ships sail into the harbor during our world famous annual Windjammer Days Festival. Visitors have long marveled at the unique one of a kind opportunity to see these vessels from a time gone by.

If it’s the great outdoors you seek, we invite you to stay at Lobsterman’s Cottage and explore the world right outside your door. Walk along the rugged rocky coast of the beautiful Ocean Point area in East Boothbay or take the kids to Hendricks Head beach for the day to explore and gather up treasures from the sea. In this seafaring town, you will find many different kinds of boating excursions offered. Book a fishing charter, sail along the coast, Take a day trip out to Monhegan Island or rent kayaks and explore the Harbor’s many inlets and see the beauty of the land from a new perspective, or keep it simple with a trip out to sea to view lighthouses, seals, puffins and even whales. You may decide that you’d like to see up close, our lobstermen hauling traps. Book a trip out with Captain Clive he will show you how the pros do it!

For all you land lubbers, the Boothbay Region Land trust, a non-profit land conservation organization, offers over 30 miles of hiking trails to explore. Enjoy meadows, forests, wetlands, scenic vistas and the natural beauty of the Boothbay region. These trails are open year round to the public free of charge. Easy, Moderate, and Challenging trails are available throughout the region and on Indiantown and Damariscove Islands. The 250-acre Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens also offers hiking trails and an opportunity to view the sprawling gardens of native plants. Plan to spend some special time in the Children’s Garden, and bring your camera!

Enjoy our idyllic seaside town by strolling along our waterfront, filled with its many shops and boutiques, offering unique gifts, arts and crafts, handmade jewelry, nautical home decor, distinctive, high quality glass and pottery, books about the region by local authors, antiques and so much more. Eat at one of our many world class restaurants offering only the freshest local caught seafood. Be sure to sample some Down East Fudge at the Boothbay Fudge Factory along the By-way, where you will also find fresh pulled salt water taffy. If that’s not sweet enough, try out one of the ice cream shops. The family favorite Wannawaf is just across the footbridge. No trip is complete without at least one visit to one of the many wharfs where you can sit seaside and enjoy fresh caught lobster and local micro brews. Boothbay Harbor’s natural scenic beauty has long been a draw for artists and collector’s alike, therefore, art galleries are one thing you will also find plenty of. We invite you to take them in and see the inspiration of the Harbor’s beauty on canvas. Throughout the summer, Boothbay Harbor has many events from arts and craft festivals, to a weekly band concert on the library lawn. During your stay, don’t forget to catch a play or concert at our Historic Opera House. Getting around town is easy because everything is within walking distance from Lobsterman’s Cottage. However, if you’d rather take it easy, then just hop on the trolley to get to your destination.

Along with all that is offered locally, there are many places to visit all within easy driving distance. The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Fort Popham and Popham Beach, Reid State Park and Mount Battie are all popular destinations for visitors and locals alike and are all conveniently located near your stay at Lobsterman’s Cottage.

Your visit to the Boothbay Harbor Region with all there is to do will leave you wanting for more time to do it all. We hope your stay with us will be one of many.
