About the property

Welcome to Driftwood Cottage in beautiful East Boothbay Maine! This beautifu 2l bedroom, 1 bath cottage sits directly on the shore of the Damariscotta River, offering you unrivaled panoramic water views.

Why Pam Cunningham chose Boothbay Harbor Area

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.

Highly Recommended!!

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.

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.

Outstanding vacation rental in East Booth Bay Maine with spectacular views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The Driftwood cottage was the best vacation rental. The home was furnished with beautiful and comfortable furniture both inside and on the beautiful deck. The property was newly renovated and well- maintained. The owner did a fantastic job decorating the cottage with beautiful art. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was roomy and well- stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. The bathroom was great too. The views from all the rooms were beautiful. The numerous windows provided excellent air flow and ocean breezes. The temperature of the house was perfect at all times of the day.The deck view included ocean views and comfortable furniture and a gas grill. The sound of the waves crashing on the rocks was comforting and restful. It was enchanting to watch the lobster boats check their pots. The owner was very helpful and thoughtful. She had delicious home made banana bread ,chocolate cookies, and a jar of delicious jar of blueberry jam when we arrived. She put great thought and attention to details to make our stay both restful and relaxing. I highly recommend the Driftwood Cottage for your next vacation in Maine. There is so much to do in Booth Bay. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and perfect for taking walks. The Driftwood was everything and more than the listing provided.
