Although I just purchased this home at the end of 2010, I have been vacationing in Boothbay my entire life (since the age of three weeks) and my family has been vacationing in the area since 1914, owning property in the region and spending summers here since the 1930s. Whether this is your first time in the region or you have been coming for years, I hope you enjoy your stay to the fullest and discover why this place is so special to me and my family.

A Gem!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
Our stay at Back Bay Cottage was perfect in every way. The condo is right in the heart of lovely Boothbay Harbor, with its many restaurants and shops. It’s cozy, impeccably maintained, charmingly decorated, and superbly equipped; Abby has thought of EVERYTHING a guest might need. We felt at home right away, and we never wanted to leave. The deck/dock is the best; we were out there at sunrise, sunset, moonrise and many times in between to enjoy the superb view and watch the tides. We would have been happy to curl up and spend all our time “at home,” but we had magnificent fall weather, so we walked all around town, took a harbor cruise and explored the nearby Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens (a “must-see”), the Maine Maritime Museum and Iron Works in Bath, and the excellent Farnsworth Museum in Rockland. Back Bay Cottage is a gem. Highly recommended.

Being born in Boston, and having spent most of our lives in three states, we recognize what characterizes and makes New England unique. Portside, at Back Bay Cottage, is an example of an accommodation that typifies life in a seaside New England Village. In addition to that, Boothbay Harbor itself represents much of the beauty of the entire state of Maine. Because of that, many artists over the years have chosen to reside in Boothbay. Whether shopping, dining, exploring, sightseeing, hiking, or simply sitting on the dock, the sights, sounds, smell, touch, and feel of being in New England are in abundance. Finding local activities and professionals is worthwhile.Through word of mouth, it just so happens the same recommendation will pop up regarding each inquiry.Soon you begin to feel like it's your home also. The interior and exterior of Portside portrays the natural integrity of its' setting and location. Where ever you cast your eyes, a picturesque scene comes into focus. Abby is welcoming, easy to communicate with, and offers a 5-star, real-life, get-a-way! Take the time to let Maine surround you in all that you do, and from the moment you open the door, until the time has come to close it, the word "Wow," will be with you.

Owner's Response: Jamie, Sandy,

Thank you so much for your kind words! I am so glad you enjoyed Portside and were able to take advantage of all Boothbay has to offer!

My husband, son and I stayed a week in the Port Side cottage in Boothbay. We could not have been happier with the cottage! It was by far the most comfortable vacation rental we have ever used. The cottage has alot of space with a cozy, warm feel. So well stocked with everything from kitchen supplies to linens. Lots of info about the area with ideas, directions, menus or anything you would want to know. Loved our stay in Boothbay and at Back Bay Cottages, cant wait to go back!

We cannot say enough good things about our time spent here. We had experienced my grandfather's funeral and needed to get away afterwards and decided on the coast. My mom, dad, brother, husband and myself had plenty of room. Abby has thought of simply EVERYthing a person would need down to a full candy dish. The kitchen was well equipped with anything you would need to cook while you are there. If we even had one little complaint...it would be those darn swinging doors on the pantry....pain in the keister. A top notch place to stay, convenient to the little village. We would love to return one day. Thanks, Abby.

My family and I stayed at "Portside" Back Bay Cottage and had a wonderful experience. The cottage was clean, very nicely decorated and had every kitchen gadget you could think of. The location of the cottage was amazing! We loved being right on the water and in walking distance to everything! The owner of the cottage was fantastic! She communicated with us throughout the planning of our trip and even allowed us to ship some items for our infant in advance of our stay. If we are in the Boothbay Harbor area again, we would definitely stay at Portside - Back Bay Cottage.

Boothbay Harbor is a small town on the coast of Maine with a year-round population of just over 2,000 people that was established as a fishing camp and whose economy and whose spirit are linked to the fishing industry to this day. Boothbay draws more and more visitors each year, in the summer season, for the fall foliage and to a steadily increasing extent, in the off season months. The town offers numerous boat excursions including trips to nearby islands and whale watching and deep sea fishing tours, historical sites, a world-class botanical garden, an aquarium, numerous shops and art galleries, a network of hiking trails, sea kayaking, sailing, while not losing sight of its small town New England traditions. And of course the seafood cannot be matched anywhere in the world (and believe me, I’ve tried!)
