About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6, New Dock, Direct Access to harbor

You will love my newly renovated waterfront cottage located at 46 West Street on Mill Cove in downtown Boothbay Harbor. My heart and soul went into making this cottage a quaint, comfortable home with all the amenities that you could possibly want. My goal is to ensure that you have a most wonderful vacation. A new heating and air conditioning system guarantees comfort any time of year.

Come for a long weekend to see the famous Gardens Aglow, with 360,000 lights, at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, November 17-December 31. Www.mainegardens.org. Special two night minimum. The perfect way the celebrate the holidays!

Inside the cottage you will find three bedrooms: one with a queen bed, one with a full bed, one with two twin beds; a large eat-in kitchen with deck, dishwasher, and cooking supplies including a lobster pot; a cozy living room with flat screen television; beautiful hardwood floors; and two updated bathrooms, one with laundry.

This cottage has a beautiful lawn on tidal waterfront with a large new deck and dock. There are two kayaks for your use as well as fishing tackle. It is walking distance to all the downtown shops and great restaurants. There are also whale watching tours, kayak and paddle board rentals, seal and puffin excursions, or sailing. The Maine Botanical Gardens, Aquarium, and the Boothbay Harbor Golf Club are close by.

Feel free to bring your own kayaks and explore the Harbor and Mill Cove's shipwreck. If you don't mind the cold Maine water, you can swim at the many local beaches.You may also catch fish at high tide. Relax in the Adirondack chairs at the water's edge and watch the ducks and heron that often visit the cove. The water view can also be enjoyed from the new deck or the patio.

Because the cottage has a new heating and air conditioning system it is a perfect place for year round relaxation.

About Jo Crawford

I have been coming to Boothbay for many years with my daughter and granddaughter, and never dreamed I would ever be able to own a house here...so this is my dream house in every way! It could be a place for your dream vacations as well!

Jo Crawford purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jo Crawford chose West Boothbay Harbor

The minute I saw this house for sale on the internet, I knew I would love it. When I saw it in person, it was even more adorable than I thought. I bought it immediately, and now I hope you will love being in it as much as I do. It has everything I could possibly want, and now has a new dock and heating system. I have totally redone the house including a custom kitchen, while keeping its original charm. Sunrise on the dock is going to be beautiful!

What makes this cottage unique

The deck off the kitchen is the perfect place for morning coffee or walk to town to have a big breakfast! Have dinner at home, and walk to town for the best ice cream ever. The lawn going down to the water is a great place for children to play, croquet, and fishing is excellent off the dock. Kayaking is wonderful at high tide, and the big harbor is just a paddle away.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jo. We could not have stayed at a more ideal spot. Your lovely cottage is welcoming, convenient, and comfortable. We had perfect weather and had incredibly relaxing afternoons on the full sun deck. The outdoor shower is great! The only thing better would be a two week stay. Susan

Ideal Maine Coast Experience

  • 5 of 5

Whether you enjoy rocking on one of the decks or lounging on the expansive lawn, you will find Mill Cove Cottage to be the perfect place for relaxation. Then stroll into town for shops, galleries, and restaurants galore. If you are looking for activities, there are plenty choices: whale watching, cruising to Cabbage Island for a clambake, sailing, kayaking, an excellent botanic garden, a small but fun aquarium, and more. Jo's cottage is a delight with many thoughtful touches, comfortable beds, quality linens, and a well-equipped kitchen. Don't underestimate its close proximity to town - being able to walk back and forth easily means you avoid parking hassles (and prices). If you're going to Boothbay Harbor, Mill Cove Cottage is the one to choose.

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a weeklong stay. This cottage is adorable. I highly recommend this spot if you are looking for peace and quiet with the convenience of a five minute walk to town. It is fully stocked. The owner did a lovely job renovating.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this lovely cottage. Everything was perfect. I felt very "at home" and relaxed. I would have liked to use the outdoor shower but it wasn't quite warm enough for me. Maybe be next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. I am wondering why if "Everything was perfect" you only gave it four stars. Please come back again when it is warmer to use the outside shower. Everyone loves it!

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I visited Boothbay Harbor for our yearly girls' weekend. We could not have chosen a better house. It is absolutely beautiful! The location is amazing, less than a 5 minute walk from downtown, where there is no shortage of great restaurants and interesting shops. The backyard overlooking the water provided a perfect setting. The dock was a wonderful place to sit and relax. Jo was a great host, the house was very clean and fully stocked. We had a great time and wish that we could've stayed longer!
