Very quiet. Noon whistle in the distance every day. Wonderful place to think and/or relax and/or recharge batteries but still stay connected to the business world.

Sailing Away in Boothbay
We are 4 seniors who rented property to take in the beautiful Maine coast before the tourist rush and to take Boat Rides. The property was convenient to access both Boothbay and other towns. Don't miss the Maritime Museum and boat rides in Bath. Also take a jaunt to Camden if sailing interests you. Boothbay Harbor is a lovely town with plenty of boating as well. We had SO MUCH FUN! Although house has 2 levels, the main living quarters are at entry level- 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, open floor plan with cathedral ceiling, waterviews from most rooms and an expansive deck. As 2 of us use canes, we found one floor living a dream. At dusk we watched a mother mallard take her new hatchlings out onto the water for safety. Lisa, the owner was a dream to deal with. She is so nice and really responsive to questions and needs. We will definitely visit this property again.
The house and grounds were perfect for this trip and future planned trips.
The house was clean, comfortable and well kept. All the amenities we needed and more were available. As a family we spent time relaxing, bird watching, dining, and other holiday fun inside. We thoroughly enjoyed the location: great bird watching, beautiful views, walking trails, local flavor, a skip away from the botanic garden, wonderful restaurants and excellent seafood shops. All in all we could not have planned it to be a more wonderful family get away. We can't wait to plan some warm weather trips.
Great spot, convenient to Boothbay Harbor and Botanical Gardens
Perfect for a large family. We loved the location, it was so easy to get to all of our planned activities for the weekend. We would definitely stay here again !
The house was clean and well equipped with everything needed for a short stay. The view from the balcony was great and the grounds were well kept. Directions to the house made it quite easy to find. Communications and information about the house and the surrounding area made our stay quite enjoyable.
Particularly enjoyed mild weather.
Property was a bit older than we expected.
We loved the house and the view and would love to do it again but it needs to be cleaned a little better. The fridge was dirty and the bedspreads could be washed. The basement is pretty musty smelling but we figured that goes with the territory.
Thank you for the review. The refrigerator issue is being addressed as we speak (the current one that is over 20 years old is being replaced this winter). In terms of cleaning and the bedspreads, we are at the end of the season and now have some time to catch up on a few things that happened during the vacation season including carpet cleaning or items that need replacing, . Our cottage changeover cleaner does the best that she can and I pitch in for her when I am able and schedules permit and both of us try to keep up with things. We are currently addressing the musty smell issue in the basement, too, as best we can. And yes, you're right, that comes with the territory.
Please feel free to keep us in mind for the future
Update 2/7/18 - there is a brand-new refrigerator in place (the old one has been disposed of) and the bedspread is now stain-free and all bedspreads and linens in the house will be thoroughly washed and cleaned for the season.
Update #2 (4/28/19): Yes, the refrigerator has been replaced with a brand new one that was delivered and put in service in May 2018. In terms of the musty smell in the basement - agreed, that goes with the territory. However, I'm sure that most of the problems with mildew stemmed from a bathroom that hadn't been remodeled in many years. Within the past two years that bathroom has been totally stripped down to the studs and all new fixtures, wallboard, flooring, ceiling, cabinets, etc. have been installed and also a ceiling fan has been installed to exhaust some of the humidity/smells inherent in a bathroom. We do try to keep up with things as best we can - and have the carpets cleaned every year. We also address as best we can problem areas and/or replace items as needed with new or updated items. We hope that things are satisfactory to travelers and are constantly vigilant and make improvements/repairs as needed.
