About the property

1 Bedroom, Queen size bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Located on the shores of Linekin Bay is the cottage you have been searching for. It's a romantic cottage built for two with breathtaking views of the natural beauty that surrounds it. The views from your cottage include Barrett's Park, Lobster Cove, Linekin Bay and world famous Cabbage Island. Watch the bright red sunrises and see how the sky changes to shades of light pinks and blues as the dawn comes forth. It's a spectacular sight that will remain with you forever. Step out onto your porch and experience the smell of the fresh morning salt air. Relax with your morning coffee made with a Keurig coffee pot so bring your K cups.. The cottage has a microwave, full sized refrigerator, cable T.V. with built in DVD, and Wi-Fi internet. The bathroom has hot and cold water with a shower.

There is a dock for your kayak or boat or use our kayaks included in your rental. For larger boats we have a mooring with 7' of water at low tide that can be used when available. Be sure to visit us during Windjammer Days, an annual event that last for a week.

You can cook your own Maine lobster and steamers over a wood fire in our outdoor fireplace, pots and pans provided or walk down the street and have your shore dinner prepared by one of the local restaurants. Be sure to save room for some delicious Smore's roasting your marshmallow's over the open fire.

The town center is a 5 minute walk where there is unlimited shopping and local seafood restaurants, boats are moored and at dockside in the harbor.

From the harbor you can catch a whale watching boat, deep sea fishing boat, take a sail on the Eastwind with Captain and author Herb Smith, or just a nice cruise around the harbor and surrounding islands and watch the seals, puffins and whales in their natural habitat.

This is a Maine vacation at its best and one that will call you back to the unique and beautiful shores of Boothbay Harbor. In September and October view the changing of the leaves and the reflections in the water...

Transportation is available from the Portland International Jetport or the Concord Coach bus stop in Wiscasset.

We are located just off the Maine Island Trail between the Sheepscot and Damariscotta Rivers. Paddle right up to our dock for a few nights rest and the exploration of Boothbay Harbor on foot and approximately 5 miles north of Damariscove Island. The cottage is adequate for two people only. No extra overnight guests allowed.......... This is a non-smoking( inside and outside) and no pet property.

Just a short drive from the city to escape with your partner to the quietness of the nature that surrounds you! Don't wait ...if you have a week in mind you can book at any time ! PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

About Nancy Morris

We live on the property and try our upmost please our guests.

Nancy Morris purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Nancy Morris chose Boothbay Harbor

It is quiet and peaceful...a place where birds sing at daylight, ever changing tides, lobstermen at work hauling their traps, beautiful sunrises and hardly a cloud in the sky except when the fog rolls awesome sight !

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located on the edge of town in a quiet, peaceful area. Stay awhile and steal away to barefoot days and cool nights. Here in Boothbay Harbor you can linger, let go and let these shores restore your spirit....just when you need it most. It's R & R at its best ! It's the most beautiful on earth !

Guestbook comments from the owner

In all aspects of the stay, this place was outstanding. The hosts, Nancy and Mac were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best it could be. The cottage was immaculate and decorated very well to give an atmosphere of a great seaside getaway. It is an easy walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor with many restaurants available. Cant say enough great things about it.

This little cottage was perfect! We have been visiting Maine for many years, usually with our two daughters. This time we were ALONE!! This is in a great location, it is quiet and has everything. Nan and Mac were gracious hosts. First, it was immaculate, small but for 2 just right! The kitchen is better than it looks - two burner top, full fridge and everything you need to cook. The things we really liked were all the outdoor areas to enjoy the ocean. There is a small deck, great for morning coffee and evening glass of wine. The dock system is great with two kayaks (we have rented them for the family before and it's not cheap) There are also chairs on the lawn that can be moved or a fire pit above!! The other thing that we loved was the fact that it was pretty quiet but you could walk over the hill and get lobsters for dinner or take the foot bridge into Booth Bay. There is a GREAT breakfast place to the right once you are over the hill, around the corner can't remember the name ?? Mama Jeans or something like that, very friendly, great breakfast. Mid Coast Maine is also filled with great towns to explore. Nan and Mac have this down!!! We enjoyed them so much we invited them to stay with us when they visit Lancaster County! Thanks Nan and Mac, we had a great time!! đź’š

Adorable Cottage with Spectacular Views & Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a nice getaway from our busy schedules to spend quality time together and relax. We came across this gem of a place which was small, cute and cozy but had everything we needed. The views from the cottage were amazing. We never even turned on the tv, we just sat on the porch, talked and admired the ever changing views of the Linekin Bay, from sunrises to sunsets. We managed to try out the kayaks, walked down the street to Boothbay Lobster Warf for some music and Lobsters, of course. Took a walk into town by crossing the footbridge which was only a few minutes away and it led to a quaint little town with numerous shops and restaurants. Walked around the bend to the park across the way and went in the water. Went for a short ride and Walked the rocks at the Ocean Point Walk for additional views of the bay. Also, When reading the reviews about Mac & Nan, they are not lying. Mac & Nan are the sweetest and nicest Hosts. We just loved listening and talking with them. They were also very helpful with their knowledge of the area. We hated to leave and were very sad to go, BUT, WE WILL BE BACK!!

Amazingly Sweet Stay with Nan & Mac on Linekin Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My husband and I stayed for five nights at Nan & Mac's adorable little cottage right on the water in Linekin Bay. They were the sweetest hosts! We really enjoyed meeting them and talking about their experiences on the Bay. They invited us to a Lobster Bake one night and Mac fried us up some freshly caught Mackerel to taste. Truly wonderful people with big hearts. The cottage is perfect with an incredible view of the water and a little kitchen area to make your own meals. We rented a boat during our stay which we were able to keep on their dock. Couldn't be more perfect. The location is prime. A short 10 min walk to town over the hill behind the spectacular Boothbay Our Lady Queen of Peace Church. You get all the benefits of being able to walk to town but are on a pristine quiet inlet of Linekin Bay without all the hustle and bustle of busy Boothbay Harbor. Although the spot itself is remarkable, our favorite part of our time there was meeting Nan & Mac. We really hated to say goodbye at the end of our stay. We plan to come back again next year. Thank you Nan & Mac for sharing your beautiful spot with us and all of those who you host at your incredible place! You are the best! See you again next year!!! Jenn & Chris from Alameda, CA

Owner's Response: Jenn and Chris, Thank you for your kind review. It is our utmost desire to make sure that our guests have a unique experience visiting us on Linekin Bay in beautiful Boothbay Harbor, Maine . Mac states that he hopes to cook you striper next season, but first he has to catch them. Thank you for the miniature tripod gift . I have used it already taking a picture of me near my pin map that shows where my guests hail from. We really enjoyed meeting you and can't wait for your return. Nan and Mac

The place is beyond horrible a nightmare.

  • 1 of 5

Air conditioner, next to bed, small old and noisy -you won't sleep. Ceiling fan only works with the light on-who sleeps with lights on? Insulation open and visible. Low tide makes it impossible to Kayak or swim. The place is mis-represented. Horrible,

Owner's Response: Philip, I am so sorry that you were not happy when you visited us. Over the years 99.9% of our guests left very impressed with our well kept property....just read all of my 5 star reviews ! We have had gifts sent to us as well as being invited to our guest residences if we are in their area. Our guests range from coast to coast and also from far away places like England, France, Germany, Canada, Iceland, Alaska and Hawaii. Again, I am so sorry that no matter what I did I could not please you including giving you a discounted rate before your arrival, refunding 3 of the 4 nights at your request and offering you 50% off on a future visit. Sincerely, Nan

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage because all the previous reviewers had give it five stars and they were not wrong! Absolutely gorgeous, right on the water and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants (which is good, because we needed to walk off all the delicious food we ate.) Nan and Mac were super friendly, informative and a pleasure. They were there when we needed them but completely respectful of our privacy. I can recommend this as a perfect couple's getaway.
