Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Boothbay Harbor - Lobster Cove Cottages

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Located on the shores of Linekin Bay is the cottage you have been searching for. It's a romantic cottage built for two with breathtaking views of the natural beauty that surrounds it. The views from your cottage include Barrett's Park, Lobster Cove, Linekin Bay and world famous Cabbage Island. Watch the bright red sunrises and see how the sky changes to shades of light pinks and blues as the dawn comes forth. It's a spectacular sight that will remain with you forever. Step out onto your porch and experience the smell of the fresh morning salt air. Relax with your morning coffee made with a Keurig coffee pot so bring your K cups, otherwise we have a Mr. Coffee. The cottage has a microwave, full sized refrigerator, cable T.V. with built in DVD, and Broadband internet. The bathroom has hot and cold water with a shower.

There is a dock for your kayak or boat or use our new kayaks included in your rental. For larger boats we have a mooring with 7' of water at low tide.

You can cook your own Maine lobster and steamers over a wood fire in our outdoor fireplace, pots and pans provided or walk down the street and have your shore dinner prepared by one of the local restaurants. Be sure to save room for some delicious Smore's roasting your marshmallow's over the open fire.

The town center is a 5 minute walk where there is unlimited shopping and local seafood restaurants, boats are moored and at dockside in the harbor.

From the harbor you can catch a whale watching boat, deep sea fishing boat, take a sail on the Eastwind with Captain and author Herb Smith, or just a nice cruise around the harbor and surrounding islands and watch the seals, puffins and whales in their natural habitat.

This is a Maine vacation at its best and one that will call you back to the unique and beautiful shores of Boothbay Harbor. In September and October view the changing of the leaves and the reflections in the water...

Transportation is available from the Portland International Jetport or the Concord Coach bus stop in Wiscasset.

We are located just off the Maine Island Trail between the Sheepscot and Damariscotta Rivers. Paddle right up to our dock for a few nights rest and the exploration of Boothbay Harbor on foot and approximately 5 miles north of Damariscove Island. The cottage is adequate for two people only. No extra overnight guests allowed. This is a non-smoking and no pet property.

Just a short drive from the city to enjoy the quietness of the nature that surrounds you! Don't wait ...if you have a week in mind you can hold a reservation for a small fee ! PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

About Nancy Morris

We live on the property and try our upmost please our guests.

Nancy Morris purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Nancy Morris chose Boothbay

It is quiet and peaceful...a place where birds sing at daylight, ever changing tides, lobstermen at work hauling their traps, beautiful sunrises and hardly a cloud in the sky except when the fog rolls in...an awesome sight !

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located on the edge of town in a quiet, peaceful area. Stay awhile and steal away to barefoot days and cool nights. Here in Boothbay Harbor you can linger, let go and let these shores restore your spirit....just when you need it most. It's R & R at its best ! It's beautiful !

Guestbook comments from the owner

In all aspects of the stay, this place was outstanding. The hosts, Nancy and Mac were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best it could be. The cottage was immaculate and decorated very well to give an atmosphere of a great seaside getaway. It is an easy walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor with many restaurants available. Cant say enough great things about it.

So happy we found this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

The little cottage on the cove is the perfect place to unwind, relax, and just be. Sit on the balcony and let nature soothe your soul. We spent six days here, some just relaxing and reading, taking out the kayaks, and others exploring Booth Bay Harbor and the surrounding area. Don't miss the Botanical Gardens. Nan and Mac are the perfect hosts, offering a well equiped and clean cottage and lots of ideas on things to do! We highly recommend this gem!!

Owner's Response: We certainly enjoyed meeting you! Sitting by the picnic tables and picking out crab meat renewed our desire for the really fresh meat. Since then, we have had the neighbors in to pick as well. Buying the crabs directly from the fishermen is key. Hopefully you'll return again next season....Very sincerely, Nan and Mac

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! It was small but had all we needed. We used the hot plates to make breakfast, so eating in the cottage was doable. We used the kayaks a couple of times. Nancy and Mac were great! They were so kind. And the location was amazing! Major bonus! We walked to town for some meals. Great places to eat in town. Try Cod Head for breakfast and the Bistro for supper! Only one warning: Sprint phone service is non existent. With the wireless in the cottage we were able to stay on touch via the internet with the kids, which worked fine for us. Can't wait to recommend this to our friends!

Property was as advertised, sized for 2 adults, and right on one of the inlets of BBH.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed sitting on the deck at sunrise watching nature, and the wildlife. We were treated one morning to the sight of schools of jumping mackerel, that had been driven into the inlet by stripers or blue fish. This display went on for over an hour before dissipating.

Also really enjoyed taking Kayak rides exploring the inner harbor and some of the other inlets.

This was our first visit to BBH and we were really impressed with the beauty of the harbor and the countless restaurants all offering decks with views, and the many boating excursions offered daily for the tourist. The gas barbecue was handy for cooking a few meals but we mostly took the short 5 minute stroll into town to enjoy the local fare.

Would recommend this neat little cottage for any couple looking for a quiet peaceful time away yet minutes from a beautiful New England town. The owner, Nancy, is very friendly, pleasant and helpful with suggestions for things to do.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We visited at the end of the season. It was beautiful, but a little too cool for much boating. The cabin is wonderful, right down by the water with fabulous views. Comfortable bed, minimal cooking facilities, but fine for breakfast and lunch. Easy walk to several excellent restaurants and even downtown. Mac and Nan are excellent hosts, very friendly, and always available to provide recommendations.

Tiny House Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the best of both worlds. Right on the water with complimentary canoe and kayaks along with walkability to beautify Boothbay Harbor. We took a fishing excursion and grilled striper one evening. And enjoyed walking to the nearby lobster co-op for soft shell lobsters and great live music. Cottage is nicely appointed, very clean and also quite small -- thus the "tiny house" reference. The owners are a charming couple who are very friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Perhaps a better caption would be "Cozy Cottage Getaway" since it is a "cottage" located directly on the shore. The cottage has everything that a guest would need for a few days, a week or a month's stay and is fully self contained. It is located on a half acre with many places to roam and much outside seating on the porch, on the dock and in front of the cottage and well as a deck that all guests are welcome to use.

Picturesque,

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cottage in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. I will always remember this vacation fondly. We live in Texas, so it's a fantastic place to escape the summer heat. The cottage is quite small but functional. Don't expect hotel amenities. You're right at water's edge for a gorgeous view, and there are even two kayaks at your disposal, so check that out. The town of Boothbay Harbor is a short walk across a footbridge, so you can leave the car parked if you like. The town center is a bit touristy, but that means there are plenty of restaurants to consider. We were pleased to find a couple of nice wharf restaurants on our side of the bay that served fresh lobsters and seafood, either eat in or take home.

There are plenty of commercial boat rides that depart from the city. Pick one or two and enjoy. If you have a little time to sit on the porch and talk, Nan and Mac are delightful hosts and conversationalists. They made sure we had what we needed, including local information. One day we bought some fresh-cooked take-home lobsters from the wharf. We disassembled them at their picnic table while Nan gave us a refresher on the simplest way to get the most amount of meat.

There are lots of good hiking trails within short driving distances. All in all, a great vacation and stunning locale.

Owner's Response: Karin and Jim, We are so happy that you enjoyed our cozy cottage on the shores of Linekin Bay. Next time that you stay here, I will give you a lesson in picking out fresh Maine crabmeat...it's better than lobster, but it takes some knowledge and experience to get it out of the shell....it makes delicious crabmeat rolls...take care and see you next season....Mac and Nan
