Why Abby Gordon chose Boothbay Harbor

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 lovely vacation spot!

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot say enough about this lovely condo with a sweet cottage feel. It's easily in the best location in Boothbay Harbor, i.e., walking distance to restaurants, cafes, galleries and outdoor activities. At the same time it's a wonderfully private spot as well. I hope to return very soon!

Amazing waterfront condo in the heart of Boothbay

  • 5 out of 5
My family recently spent the week in the Portside condo and had such a fabulous time. The condo is beautifully furnished and maintained and right on the water. It is within steps of all of the restaurants and shops in Boothbay. We were there for a wedding and were able to see some of the other B&B's in town where guests were staying, and this place was by far the best, both in terms of comfort and price. We have a toddler, so staying in a condo with multiple rooms and living space was important to us over staying in a one-room lodging. This place is everything its cracked up to be - I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great family stay

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed in this lovely, well appointed and conveniently located condo with our two year old son and my parents. Everyone had plenty of room. The place offered a great combination of classic style and quaintness appropriate for the location while still offering the amenities and comfort of a modern home.

A Perfect Home Base

  • 5 out of 5
This lovely waterfront condo was cozy, comfortable, beautifully furnished, and very well equipped. It was so convenient to the shops and restaurants in the Boothbay Harbor area. A notebook prepared by the owner was extremely helpful in planning activities in the area and recommending restaurants to try. It made the perfect home base for exploring the coastal area of Maine.

A Gem!

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Jamie and Sandy (Florida)

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.

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!)
