About the property

Two Cabins Sleep 6-10 People. Private beach. Great For Family Reunions

Sunset Lodge & Cabins comprise a main lodge with one guest cabin and an owners' cabin. It is located in the historic Sprucewold Colony of Boothbay Harbor. The cabins are built in true Adirondack style, yet fully updated and modernized to make an elegant and comfortable stay for up to 10 people. We have access to a private, sandy beach and dock where you can swim, sunbathe or play with the kids, only a 5 minute walk from the cabins. We are a 15 minute walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor in one direction, or to Barrett Park in the other.

The main cabin has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, laundry room and sun porch; the guest cabin has a kitchenette (no stove or dishwasher) and one bathroom.

Tomhegan (Tom): This is the main Lodge where previous owners have lived year round. Tom is a stunning example of the Sprucewold style, with vaulted log ceilings, pine paneled walls, Native American carvings, a huge sea-stone fireplace with carved wooden mantle, and many pieces of original Sprucewold furniture. Tom has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining room, a fabulous great room with a large, flat screen TV, and a large laundry room/pantry. It is heated (hot water radiators) for cool nights, but also has a gas fire inside the sea stone fireplace. There is a sun porch with daybed and comfortable chairs, plus a large outside deck. Sleeps 6 MAXIMUM INCLUDING CHILDREN/BABIES.

Schoodic (Dick): Dick is the guest cabin where generations of families and friends have gathered for reunions and parties. It has a large great room with vaulted ceilings, a full bar along the back wall, and a huge sea stone fireplace (topped by a moose known as Steve). There is a gas fire for those cool Maine nights. There is a pool table, a reading/TV area (DVDs and videos only), dining table and chairs, and a small kitchenette with sink, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Dick has two bedrooms, separated by a bathroom with a shower and an original claw-foot tub. There is a covered porch with original hickory chairs and porch swing. Sleeps 4 MAXIMUM.

Harraseeket (Harry): Harry is the owners' cabin and is not available for rental at this time.

Tom, Dick and Harry are named after the tunnels in the movie “The Great Escape”. Tom and Dick are available to be rented together, sleeping up to 10 people. Or Tom can be rented on its own (5-6 people).

The cabins are far enough apart that those sleeping in Tom will likely not hear friends watching TV in Dick or kids toasting marshmallows outside at the stone fire pit. The cabins are a perfect setting for family gatherings. Caterers are available, with notice, and housekeeping can be arranged.

About Lindsey Williams

We are professional people hailing from Maine and England/Scotland.

Lindsey Williams purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Lindsey Williams chose Boothbay Harbor

We have longed for a family compound for years, and when we saw Sunset Lodge & Cabins we knew this was it. We love the mid-coast area, which is civilized while at the same time peaceful. This is a true summer community, complete with summer theater, wonderful music in the bars and restaurants, and glorious sunshine.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabins' log interiors glow in the sun, casting a light so warm and unique that you immediately feel at home and welcome. They embrace families and friends while - at the same time - allowing everyone their own privacy and comfort.

A great vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great location; close to town but out of town. The fire pit was a hit. Plenty of room for the whole family to spread out.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was a wonderful place for our whole family to spend a week. We had everything we needed to make great meals together, plenty of space to spread out and lovely grounds to play games and enjoy a fire at night. The pool table in Dick was a perfect place for the older kids to hang out and we ate outside most nights on the spacious deck. The pictures don't really show how charming the cabin is inside, with wonderful wood carvings and interesting maps everywhere. It's about a 20 minute walk to the harbor, but the Lobsterman's co-op was an easy walk and a great place to get lobster. The private beach is well worth a visit, although it's a bit of a walk. Boothbay Harbor is a great little town and fun to explore - lots of good restaurants. We had a wonderful week! Would love to go back.

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fantastic week at this wonderful location. The cabin is so well equipped for everything we wanted to do. From sheets to towels to cooking utensils, everything we needed was provided.

We relaxed at night with a game or 2 of pool in the cabin next door and then sat by the fire pit on the spacious, well maintained grounds. We even saw the fireworks down town from our back yard! What a view.

The town of Boothbay Harbor was stunning. Everywhere we looked was like a postcard.

The restaurants were great and the lobster was to die for!!!

This is the perfect spot for a family reunion, as there was so much room to spread out, but also, cozy enough for two!

We will definitely be back!

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this property justice. It's awesome. The spacious lawn, fire pit, and huge deck on the lodge became our focal point, with a teenager in Harry, parents with small children in Dick, and the other adults in Tom. The private beach was perfect for little ones, though we drove there rather than walking; it would be a long walk for little ones. The houses were well-appointed and extremely comfortable; the great room in the main lodge is to die for, and the dining and kitchen areas were large and lovely. Our three generations loved every minute there. The owner and manager were gracious and very responsive.

And of course the Boothbay Harbor area has tons of attractions. Our favorite was the Cabbage Island clambake -- try it!

T, D and H vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our families stayed at these warm, welcoming cottages. Plenty of room with plenty of activities for all ages. Relax fireside inside or out, listen to harbor sounds or watch the deer from your kitchen window....it's Maine ! Take a 15 minute invigorating walk and you're crossing beautiful Boothbay Harbor on the walking bridge. BBH is the quintessential coastal village with great food and entertainment. Could go on and on - gotta experience it for yourself!

Best Maine experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at the Cabins. The layout worked perfectly for all the disfunction of ALL families to spend three weeks together. We all had our own space if needed, to cook our own meals, or spend time watching movies alone, or to just sit on our own porches and chill out. But , the main lodge had the space for us all to get together and cook huge meals, eat together at the large table , and have happy hour and morning coffees on the decks together.

The firepit in the middle of the compound was the most perfect spot for everyone to stare at the fire and talk each night until the wee hours of the night, listening to the ocean , the fog horn, the crickets and the crackle of the fire. while watching shooting stars .

Our children loved having their own cabin with a pool table and bar, and their own rooms. My elderly parents were able to have their own space to retire early from the chaos, Perfect place for all. Thank you! We hope to make it a yearly adventure.

GPS devices cannot find Sunset Road, so use Sun Set - two words. If still lost, From Route 27 turn left after the Thistle Inn onto Union Street, follow that and it turns into Atlantic Avenue. Pass several motels until you see a LARGE statue of a fisherman with a yellow raincoat on. About 0.1 miles after the fisherman is Sunset Road on the left. Sunset Lodge #29 is the third house on the right.
