About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Welcome to Driftwood Cottage in beautiful East Boothbay Maine! This beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage sits directly on the shore of the Damariscotta River, offering you unrivaled panoramic water views. Truly, this cottage has some of the very best views in the area. Set well back from the road, at Driftwood the only noise you will hear is the crashing surf below. It is very quiet!

Driftwood is located on King Phillips Trail which is part of a 2 mile long road that runs directly along the coastline. The road offers stunning vistas, and is a great place to walk, jog, beachcomb or climb on the rocks. The neighborhood is very quiet, yet only 10 minutes to all of the action of Boothbay Harbor and the many restaurants and shops. It is also only 2 miles to Ocean Point and the swimming area of Grimes Cove.

Driftwood has recently been renovated and re-decorated. It has all new high-end linens, down bedding, a brand new queen mattress in the master bedroom and a new full mattress in the second bedroom!! The living area has wood floors and fun cottage style furniture. There are 2 large Bedrooms and 1 bath all on a single level. The kitchen has been updated with new granite tile countertops, a new fridge and new oven. It is stocked with everything you need. The bathroom has been completely re-done and offers a large walk-in shower.

About Pam Cunningham

This property is professionally managed by Chill Vacation Rentals. All of our listings adhere to our very high standards for amenities and cleanliness.

Why Pam Cunningham chose East Boothbay

This cottage is private and quiet!! There are absolutely stunning views throughout the house! Incredible location near Boothbay Harbor and Ocean Point. Walk out the front door and along the most beautiful 2 mile loop which hugs the coastline and goes through the woods.

What makes this cottage unique

A wall of windows facing the water. This cottage sits directly on the waterfront unlike a lot of other cottages in this area.

Driftwood Cottage - Renovated Oceanfront with Stunning Views in East Boothbay!
average rating of 4.882353 based on 17 reviews

The cottage is lovely - immaculate, simply but beautifully decorated, light, airy. Perfect for two!

  • 5 of 5

Pam was the perfect host. She was responsive and helpful, and her cottage was in outstanding condition. The furniture looks new and is quite comfortable. The view from the deck takes your breath away, and even in the rain, the large windows looking out over the river keep the cottage from seeming gloomy. The kitchen and bathroom have everything you need, and the beds are comfortable. My only suggestion would be a stacked washer/dryer combo, but there is a laundromat close by, and it was fine. The cottage’s location is ideal - the area is quiet, but you can be in the center of Boothbay Harbor in no time. We will be back!!

Charming with beautiful views! Driftwood had everything we needed. Comfortable rooms and fully equipped kitchen. Boothbay Town is so quaint and a great central location for going North to Acadia Park and South to Kennebunk and Hamptons. Loved it❤️

Had an issue with the cable and wish the shower head was adjustable. Other than that we loved this cottage.

Owner's Response: Hi Michele, thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to leave a review. We try very hard to provide our guests with great amenities and agree that an adjustable shower head would be better, so have since installed a new one. I'm sorry that you had trouble with the cable, but glad that we were able to correct the issue so quickly. Going forward, we will have one remote for everything, in order to simplify the process. I appreciate your input and hope that you come stay with us again. Warm Regards, Pam

Charming, well-appointed cottage with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

When we first walked in to Driftwood Cottage, our first reaction was "wow!" Not only is it immaculate, bright, airy, and very tastefully decorated Maine Cottage style, but it definitely has a million dollar view!!! It is also well-equipped with all the kitchen essentials needed for a nice vacation away from home (pots, pans, plates, glasses, cooking and eating utensils, coffee maker, toaster, etc.) This is the second cottage we rented from Chill Vacation Rentals in East Boothbay; last year, we rented LobsterCliff Cottage (HomeAway Rental #3800167). Both cottages are on the same street, separated by a privately owned home, and both are equally as appealing!

During our week at the Driftwood Cottage, we experienced Mother Nature at her finest. She gave us sunshine, dense fog, and some dramatic storm surge courtesy of Tropical Storm Hermine. On those picture perfect Maine days, we enjoyed our morning coffee and our evening glass of wine on the deck at the umbrella table. Although we did do some exploring of the Boothbay area, the stunning views of the Damariscotta River and open ocean kept beckoning us back to the cottage. We whiled away much of our time watching the endless parade of power boats and sailboats that passed right in front of us. The sound of the crashing waves, the cool sea air, and the super comfy furniture (including the memory foam mattress) were quite conducive to afternoon napping and sound sleeping.

Highlights of our week were a return visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens (we first discovered it on our visit to Maine last year, and we were so impressed that we became members); a daily two-lap walk around the peaceful trail savoring the lush flora and fauna, Glen Cove and of course, the river/ocean views; and our leisurely drive to see the Linekin Bay Resort. We also enjoyed a tasty lunch (and then went back for a delicious breakfast) at Harborside Tavern in Boothbay Harbor, and discovered the Watershed Tavern at Boothbay Craft Brewery (wonderful food and very friendly owners). Both are two of our new favorite places in the area. Another treat was a visit to the Seawicks Candle Company store on Wharf Street in Boothbay Harbor.

They say that the mark of a good vacation is not wanting to go back home. Although we were sad to leave this charming cottage and area, we did so relaxed and recharged. We're already looking forward to our next visit to East Boothbay and one of the Chill Vacation Rentals.

Excellent rental!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Driftwood. Million dollar views, comfortable crisp bedding, scenic walks along the trail and the immaculate condition of the cottage all added to our enjoyment. Loved the take out opportunities at the general store and the convenience of the location to the Botanical Gardens, Barrett Park and downtown Boothbay. Pam answered all questions immediately. Highly recommend!

Exactly as pictured. The view is what you paid for.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage works beautifully. Kitchen is open to dining and living rooms with the constant view of the river/ocean. Lobster boats off the dock everyday but Sunday's. If you are only going for one week and don't need more than one bathroom it's terrific. Spacious and good traffic pattern. The deck is large with an umbrella table (4 chairs) plus 4 Adirondack chairs. Had a few gatherings there that works out great. If you like to walk there is a 2.2 miles loop that is terrific that we did at least once a day.

We stayed 4 weeks and no washer and dryer got to us. Laundromats are not our thing. $20 bucks and 2 hours per trip. That was our only gripe. Would love to own it and add the laundry.
