treehouse cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to visit for the fall foliage color change and indulge in Maine seafood. The owners were very accommodating, mailing us the keys, maps to the cabin location and places of interest ahead of our arrival. We also received our security deposit promptly on our return home.

We have traveled to Maine several times, varying our location up and down the coast, and prefer Boothbay Harbor. There is plenty to see and do in town (very picturesque with shops and restaurants) with all ammenities (Hannaford supermarket, banking, Radio Shack, dollar store) for the odd incidentals we needed, just outside town. We only ate out once a day (don't miss the Boat House in Boothbay) - and why would you when Mainiac's lobster ($6.95 / lb) and Pinkham's Seafood (literally everything else from the sea) provided all the fresh catch, just up Wiscasset Rd.

The kitchen, although small, was well stocked, including a good sized lobster pot.

We were lucky to be there during a full moon which made for delightful evenings on the deck enjoying the shimmering light on Linekin Bay. We also happened to be there during the Pumpkin Festival in Damariscotta where every street displayed truly amazing pumpkin carvings. They even host a regatta using carved out pumpkins as boats (don't miss Damariscotta River Grill).

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay, we will be back!

Maine as is should be!!

Serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay here. The location is ideal with a view of Linekin Bay on one side, a lake with swimming beach across the road, and a forest reserve with hiking trails a few yards up the road. It is near downtown Boothbay Harbor with its fun shops and restaurants as well as the Coastal Botanical Garden. The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and everything worked! The owner is very easy to communicate with. He answered our questions and returned our deposit promptly. We loved having morning coffee on the deck while watching birds and squirrels and lobster boats. Day trips to Penobscot Lighthouse and another to Popham Beach were highlights. We enjoyed Spinney's restaurant for its seafood and picturesque setting in Popham Beach. It was a perfect vacation.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We liked the location of the house. It was close to downtown Booth Bay Harbor. We were able to walk down to the association beach which was just two houses away. We didn’t end up using the canoe that was provided because you needed to walk down the hill with it to the beach and there wasn’t much of a path. The house was a good size for our family of 3 and would be good for another person too. The deck is nice to sit out on and look at the water. We liked that we didn’t need to pay a cleaning fee too. The security deposit was returned quickly. Gordon was really easy to work with and very responsive. We liked that he provided some suggestions of things to do in the area beforehand too.

Comfy Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a relaxing week in late September 2017. The cabin is located on a very rustic site in the trees overlooking Linekin Bay, a short 10 minute drive from Boothbay Harbor. The description provided by owner was very accurate. We particularly enjoyed the large deck from which we had a good view of the bay thru the many huge pines, the wifi performed flawlessly, and the substantial library and videos create opportunities for book/movie lovers. The property was clean and comfortable and just what we needed for a relaxing vacation in wonderful coastal Maine. The owner was very pleasant and made the transaction very simple, while promptly responding to inquires and promptly returning our security deposit. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Very private, quiet, and scenic. Spacious and big fan of long deck. Very homey and cozy indoors. They had conveniences that many people do not have at home. A great vacation experience

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here the end of September, first of August 2016. Me and my husband had a great time in boothbay and enjoyed having a quite place to come back to at the end of the day. Comfortable beds, had fun sitting out on the deck reading. Took walks to the Ocean edge. We even took the canoe out that they have under the house and went canoeing one day. Beautiful place to come and visit I highly recommend it.
