  • Consistently Exceptional

    "We traveled back to this cottage for the third time and from the moment we got out of the car and heard the surf below breaking along the shoreline we knew why we keep returning to this special place. The cottage is very private surrounded by woods and outstanding vistas across the Penobscot Bay. Dozens of wild finches feeding off the rear deck and accomidations that offers all the comforts of a home well cared for and maintained. The thing that keeps bring us back is the relaxation we feel from being in the cottage with the fireplace burning and the sunset across the bay directly off the rear of the house. The only regret we have is not staying longer ...."

  • Outstanding!

    "Exceptional rental- great location, clean and well maintained home and helpful owners. For a family of 6, we had everything we needed and plenty of room. Easy walk or bike to town and central to all hiking and swimming. Highly recommend!"

  • Great beach house!

    "We, six adults and two teenagers, spent a lovely week in the Pilot House. The house was fully equipped, nicely furnished and very clean. The location, just off of the beach on the Kennebec River was wonderful. A short walk to a private path led to the beach. I, as a fisherman, and the other guests, loved the ease of access to the beach for sunbathing, walks, drift wood art, dog walking and the beautiful views of West Point, Wood and Pond Islands and the mouth of the river. The kitchen was superbly equipped with everything necessary from gourmet meals to breakfast. The house is informal but very comfortable. The fenced in yard was nicely maintained as were the flower and herb gardens. Our dogs loved the yard and we were happy they were in a secure fenced area. Our week was very hot, especially for Maine, but there were fans in every bedroom and a whole house fan as well. We loved the wrap around porch, the library, the screened in back porch and the game room. The owner couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I have rented properties here, in the Caribbean, and in Europe, and can say without hesitation that the Pilot House is one of my all time favorites."

  • Location. Location. Location

    "We stayed one week at the Samoset Retreat on a small cove in East Boothbay and could not have been happier. We were looking for a quiet getaway and we found it. The location gave us great privacy, our own dock to swim from (although the water was pretty shallow) and kept noisy lobster and motor boats at bay. We ate on the deck overlooking the water for every meal and were kept company by the resident blue heron and mama osprey. We also enjoyed the stars from the dock at night. We were only about 12 minute's drive to downtown Boothbay Harbor so we were able to stroll the shops, eat out and attend evening events without any extended driving. Before we left, we were already talking about coming back another time to enjoy the peace and beauty of the area."
