  • A great stay in Maine

    "We had a girlfriends reunion at this beautiful Maine home and I can't say enough about the comfort and location of this charming waterfront cottage. We had plenty of space to spread out, a great kitchen equipped with everything that you could possibly need, a wonderfully wide wrapped porch where we spent hours enjoying our morning coffee, having evening cocktails, watching the boats go by, and catching up with old friends. The Owl's Nest has been very well thought out and provides every comfort for you to enjoy coastal Maine at it's best. The home is "tucked in" to enjoy all the privacy that you would need but close enough for walking to the charming general store where the breakfast pizza is so delicious. We enjoyed fishing, shopping and dining in the quaint downtown area, relaxing walks throughout Boothbay, cooking in the great kitchen, and warm cozy fires during the cool evenings of May. And, our weather was awesome so it made for a perfect week for making great memories. We all loved it and want to come back with our families. Next time though, we will be enjoying the boathouse... having ping pong tournaments and dancing under the disco ball.... just love that touch! Thank you, Bob, for the gracious comfort of your home for your guests."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect family vacation, walked into town everyday

    "An adorable cottage with an amazing location!! Stayed here with our 3 year old daughter and 2 month old son. Walked the beach across the street during low tide, spent time everyday at the park across the street and walked into town everyday for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just an ice cream. Karen and her husband are extremely friendly. Started the vacation off with Karen handing me a glass of prosecco when meeting up with her to get the keys at their art gallery in town. We came the week of the 4th, we walked to the church lawn about a 1/4 mile from the house to watch the fireworks across the harbor. In the future I'd like to stay during windjammer week which was the week before. Looks like they have a lot of activities that would have been fun. Could not say enough good things about this cottage and the location!"

  • Cozy and Comfortable

    "You will feel like this cottage has been in your family for generations. We fell in love with the view and most days just lingered on the enclosed porch or outside on the roomy deck, watching lobster boats, sail boats and crafts of various configurations make their way through the blue, ever changing tides. Look for the heron guarding his hunting ground on the shore below or watch the otters diving for fish. Peaceful and relaxing yet you are just minutes away from restaurants, groceries and downtown Boothbay Harbor. Comfy beds. Relax and enjoy. We were a party of four adults and would recommend."
