About the Property
1 bedroom,1 bath and sleeper sofa, large dock and float, a real Maine Cottage
You can't get any closer to the water than this cottage. This cottage rests on a 250 foot working wharf, used by lobster men in the winter to store their traps and gain access to the water. Bring your boat with you and keep it at the float for an additional rental fee. (space is limited, call for details) You may be able to buy lobsters directly from a lobster man hauling traps in the cove. One cozy bedroom with a double bed and living room with a sleeper sofa, the cottage sleeps 2-4 people. The galley style kitchen has a 4 burner stove and oven to fill all of your basic cooking needs, or you can use the lobster cooker and grill out on the dock. The inside table seats 4, and when weather is nice, eating at the picnic table on the dock is perfect.
If you are looking for a place to disconnect, unwind and relax, come soak up the sun and fresh air or watch the sun rise over Lobster Cove. Treasure hunt the shore while the tide is out or toss in a lure and catch a striped bass or mackerel for dinner. Take a trip into town for a day of shopping or an evening at the Opera House which hosts a wide variety of entertainers such as Jackson Browne, Celtic Storm, Pete Best Band, and Marty Stewart.

Enjoy a picnic on the shore at Barrett's Park or take a nice walk across the foot bridge to town. On your way back from town, stop into one of the lobster retailers, watch the lobster men unloading their catch and pick up fresh lobster to cook and eat on our dock. The cottage is just 4 miles from a world class golf course and the Botanical Garden. Take a day trip to Monhegan Island, a lobster bake at Cabbage Island, whale watching, go lobstering or deep sea fishing on a charter boat, and sailing on a sunset cruise. Our YMCA offers day passes if you would like to workout, play tennis, walk on the track or swim in the new pool. Take in a movie at the Harbor Light Cinema. Enjoy a round of mini golf and an ice cream at the Dolphin golf or take a ride on the train at the railway village after viewing their collection of antique autos. The Boothbay Region is a wonderful place to unwind, relax and disconnect from reality.
Take a day trip to Freeport for a day of shopping at L.L. Bean and the outlet stores.
Year Purchased: 1974
Why the Owner Chose Boothbay Harbor, ME, USA:
In 1974 my parents were looking for a nice place to raise their family. They both had grown up on Lobster Cove Road. My father was a second generation lobster man. The property was perfect. They built our home across the street and began to expand the small existing dock to accommodate his lobster traps and fishing gear. For many years, he would build his own lobster traps in his work shop, which has now been completely renovated into Lobster Cove Cottage. My two teenage sons, forth generation lobster men, continue to fish their traps in the cove, (you may have a chance to see them). During the winter the dock is still used by six lobster men to store their traps and gear. My father built the dock with the help of his friends so other lobster men would continue to have access to the shore. I welcome the opportunity to share this wonderful cottage and the real Maine experience with visitors to the Boothbay Region.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime to witness a real Maine working waterfront in action. Before the first week in June, the lobster men will be working on, preparing and setting their gear in preparation for the lobster fishing season. When you rent in the early season (at our early season rates), you can see them loading their boats, and the dock becomes a busy workplace. Unlike in the summer, during this busy time before June 1st, the dock is not available for guests use, and the float becomes available in early June.
