Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Boothbay Harbor - Jordan's at Mill Cove

House, 3 Bedrooms + Alcove (See Description), 2 Baths +, (Sleeps 10)


RIGHT ON THE WATER!!!! This home books quickly. Reserve early to ensure your vacation at Mill Cove.

Unique ocean front home located on Mill Cove, a picturesque and active setting with panoramic southerly ocean views with sunrises and sunsets. SUN ALL DAY. A 5 minute walk gets you to the heart of Boothbay Harbor for shopping, dining, boat rides, and entertainment. No need to worry about parking.

This cove is tidal and has 6-8 feet of water at high tide and is a natural habitat for waterfowl, Striped Bass and Mackerel.

The back yard features beautiful gardens and a sitting/dining area right at the water's edge under a large pergola covered with wisteria and grapevine. Relax in one of our many Adirondack chairs on the waters edge. Enjoy the fire pit while roasting S'mores and watching the sunset on the cove. If you're feeling adventurous, we provide you with 3 ocean kayaks, or you can swim and fish off your own private dock and float without ever leaving the property.

Relax on the large deck equipped with gas grill and large dining area overlooking the magnificent gardens and the harbor.

The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen features a large island with dine-up seating. The sun room/dining area is just off the kitchen and features cozy pillow wrap around seating. The spacious but cozy Tuscan-style living room has bistro-style dining for four, beautiful wood-burning fireplace, 46' LED Smart TV with CD/DVD and surround-sound with French doors leading out onto the entertainment deck.

Master bedroom has a queen bed, separate dressing room as well as a lounging area with TV/DVD and French doors leading onto a private deck overlooking the water with hot tub and bistro table and chairs. Bedroom 2 is water-view with a queen bed. BR 3 has 1 full and 2 twin beds . There is a full size pull out sofa bed in the living room.

This traditional Maine home has been in the family for eighty years and has everything to enhance your Maine vacation. If you want to be steps from town but feel like you're miles away, Mill Cove is your perfect vacation destination. “This is it!!!!!!” 3:00 pm Check-in, 10:00 am check-out. WIFI, Smart TV. Great place for a small wedding! We have had 9 here.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 total) vacationed here recently for a week and had a wonderful time. The home is very-well maintained and has a scenic setting on a tidal cove. We did a little bit of everything including kayaking, hiking, cooking s'mores and enjoying the town of Boothbay Harbor which is a 5-10 minute walk away. Would definitely recommend and we will likely try to return in the future. Alden and Karen were very pleasant to deal with every step of the way.

Extraordinary location

  • 5 of 5

Alden and Karen were the perfect hosts in sharing their home with our family. From the incredible landscaping on the property, to the beautiful eclectic home, to the five bouquets of live flowers situated throughout the home, this was THE special place to spend a delightful week in Maine. Our family, ranging in ages of eight to seventy-two, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We highly recommend this property to anyone.

Alden and Karen,

Many, many thanks.

The Cadwallader Family

Boland/Cameron vacation June 11-18, 2016

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time we stayed at Karen and Alden Jordan's place in Mill Cove. We returned to this place because our first visit was absolutely awesome and we wanted to repeat the fun. This house is beautiful, well maintained, completely furnished with everything you would need for a perfect vacation and it is decorated uniquely. And extra bonus is that you are within walking distance of downtown. They are the greatest hosts and make you feel so at home. They are very knowledgeable as to what sites to see and what restaurants to visit. The food and view from the Bistro Boathouse is a must on your list of things to do. Everyone should see the Botanical Gardens if possible. Speaking of gardens, Alden and Karen's flower gardens are exceptional. We were so glad they could help celebrate Rosalie's 75th. Birthday celebration with us. The crab stuffed lobster feast will never be forgotten. What a great treat! This was our first experience with the kayaks and we had the perfect weather to do this. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can chalk up another great vacation. Karen and Alden are no longer our hosts but have become great friends. Thanks so much again for making our stay so memorable.

My family and friends just enjoyed the best, most relaxing vacation we have seen in a long time. I am an amateur chef and the kitchen was to die for. Fully stocked with everything you need! The home sets up perfectly with several "spaces" for relaxing, firewatching, hot tub, reading, conversing, admiring the flowers and eating! The location is perfect: waterfront with privacy and a 5 minute walk to town. We had fresh flowers from the garden in each room. Truly amazing the work and love Karen and Alden dedicate to their garden! We enjoyed 9 out of 10 days without rain! The day it did rain, no big deal, snuggled by the fire with a book! All the firewood provided by Alden (and it was dry!) I have stayed in the area for 7 of the last 8 years and this was by far the best home we have rented. We felt welcome and at home: Serenity!

Thank you Alden and Karen (and Katrina the cat!)

Beautiful home, beautiful location, outstanding hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! It was a short walk to town and close to everything we wanted to do! The Flowers - in September!!!- were AMAZING! Daliah Heaven!!! The home was lovely and comfortable. Loved the kitchen and he downstairs bathroom. Enjoyed kayaking around the harbor, casting for fish, petting Katrina The Cat, sitting on the decks, using the Hot Tub off the Master bedroom. We had one question on the first day and it was taken care on in minutes. Even the lobster tastes better at the Jordan's!
