  • It doesn't get much better than this!

    "This was our first stay at the Boathouse cottage and will definitely not be our last! We were looking for a private place to stay that would be within walking distance to town, and we found it here. The walk to town is very short, but you'd never know it, given the privacy of the Boathouse. After exploring the entire town, we truly feel that the view from the cottage is the best in town. The cottage itself is the perfect size for a couple, and the view from the picture window in the bedroom is incredible. The kitchen is modestly equipped, but it worked perfectly for us, as we didn't want to do a whole lot of cooking. We didn't see the need, when there were so many restaurants within walking distance! Shane generously told us to let us know if there was anything we needed and didn't have; there wasn't. We did make use of the grill on the deck, which was great. The cottage is right next to the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard. There was some activity there during the week, but the noise was minimal and never bothered us. The best thing about the cottage is the rooftop deck, as well as the use of the large oceanfront lawn and dock. We really enjoyed our nightly trips to the rooftop to look at the stars (including a couple of shooting stars). We enjoyed wine and snacks on the lawn one night with Shane, who is an extremely personable host. We truly believe there's no better place to stay in Boothbay Harbor (if you need more space, check out Shane's other properties on the same lot: Landings East and Sur La Mer). We can't recommend the Boathouse cottage enough!"

  • Great House and Property in a wonderful setting!

    "Our second vacation in your lovely Maine home was even better than the one last year -- except that we should have stayed longer! There are so many things to do nearby that it was hard to fit them all into two weeks. We also enjoy just relaxing on the large deck, gazing out at the water and the birds or watching the full moon rise over the river. Having the Botanical Gardens within a mile is great - we enjoy the gardens as well as the kayak trips that are run from their location. Porters Preserve, Gregory Preserve and Oven Mouth are our favorite hiking areas nearby. My husband loves bicycling down River Road and over to Southport and we both like to drive down to enjoy lunch or dinner overlooking Townsend Gut at Robinson's Wharf. We entertained friends at your house this summer - both for a barbeque and a lobster dinner. Purchased the lobsters at nearby Trevett Store. Your kitchen is so well equipped, entertaining was a pleasure. We also enjoy the huge and interesting selection of books that fill your house. We are looking forward to another, longer, stay next summer."

  • Wonderful place/excellent hosts!

    "Eleanor's and Pete's apartment could not have been better for us and their complimentary boat trip was also perfect for us. We arrived on a mission to find a summer place in the Boothbay area. We found a great place with the help of our wonderful (and very supportive) hosts, Eleanor and Pete. The morning after our afternoon arrival, Pete took us out on his very cool lobster-style boat and, over the course of many (patient) hours, cruised by all of the houses we were going to see over the upcoming next few days. It was very helpful to have seen these places from the water prior to seeing them from the land. It was also very helpful to have someone familiar with the waters in the area, show us around. The stop in downtown Boothbay for an ice cream cone "lunch," of course, did not lessen our enthusiasm for the area. Oh...back to the apartment - there's nothing missing. We had been traveling for a few weeks and were sick of eating out, so we cooked most of our meals, for the 9 nights we were there, in the apartment (did I mention I like to cook and didn't need a thing to put a few semi-elaborate meals together?). All-in-all, we had a great time, loved the place and would go back in a heart beat. If you go, make sure you ask Eleanor to show you her amazing surprise upstairs!"
