1 bedroom,1 bath and sleeper sofa, large dock and float, a real Maine Cottage
Why Lisa Burnham chose Boothbay Harbor
In 1974 my parents were looking for a nice place to raise their family. They both had grown up on Lobster Cove Road. My father was a second generation lobster man. The property was perfect. They built our home across the street and began to expand the small existing dock to accommodate his lobster traps and fishing gear. For many years, he would build his own lobster traps in his work shop, which has now been completely renovated into Lobster Cove Cottage. My two teenage sons, forth generation lobster men, continue to fish their traps in the cove, (you may have a chance to see them). During the winter the dock is still used by six lobster men to store their traps and gear. My father built the dock with the help of his friends so other lobster men would continue to have access to the shore. I welcome the opportunity to share this wonderful cottage and the real Maine experience with visitors to the Boothbay Region.
What makes this Cottage unique
This could be the opportunity of a lifetime to witness a real Maine working waterfront in action. Before the first week in June, the lobster men will be working on, preparing and setting their gear in preparation for the lobster fishing season. When you rent in the early season (at our early season rates), you can see them loading their boats, and the dock becomes a busy workplace. Unlike in the summer, during this busy time before June 1st, the dock is not available for guests use, and the float becomes available in early June.

This cottage is the perfect location to visit BoothBay Harbor. As others have said, a short walk to foot bridge, restaurants and lobster wharfs. Staying on a working lobster dock with amazing views from inside and out was absolutely a pleasure. Very close to downtown and grocery store but on a side road with nearly zero traffic, very relaxing after a couple days of fishing. Highly recommend buying lobster and clams at Atlantic Seafood at the end of the road and using lobster pot and nice grill provided. it will save you a lot of money and the view from the dock/picnic table is awesome.Lobster rolls are going for $20-$30 a piece at restaurants with a view. The owner Lisa was excellent to work with and I will certainly stay here when back in Maine.
The property was great. Unique in that it is reall on a wharf with lobster traps. Lisa and all others were so nice to talk to and gain usefull information about restaurants and places to buy great steaks and seafood for preparing at the cottage It has a perfect set up for eating in
Great Little Place
We loved this little cottage. It is simple buy cozy. The views are amazing and it is the perfect area to explore Boothbay Harbor and the surrounding areas. We will be back!
Cute cottage on the bay
Cute cottage with great views. Working dock is interesting to watch. Lots of birds, ducks and an eagle. Close to Boothbay Harbor. Full bed and pull out sofa are not so comfortable. Overall it is a very nice cottage.
Cozy hideaway with great water views
My husband and I, and our golden retriever, just spent three wonderful days and nights at this comfortable, cozy cottage at the edge of a wharf on Lobster Cove. The views of the water first thing in the morning and last thing at night were a tranquil way to start and end the day, not to mention enjoying the beautiful starry night sky. Tucked away at the bottom of wooden stairs leading down from the street level, the cottage has a feeling of total privacy and seclusion, yet is within walking distance or a short drive to town. Lisa, the owner. called soon after we arrived to welcome us and provide helpful information, including her cell number if we needed anything. There is a park nearby where our dog was able to run. Boothbay Harbor has some great restaurants, our favorites this time being Mama D’s for wonderful breakfasts of delicious Belgium waffles, omelets, homemade muffins and scones, and great coffee (it’s also dog friendly, even inside) and Robinson’s Wharf on nearby Southport Island for superb steamers, lobsters, and other seafood. It’s a great area for art galleries as well.
Perfect quiet spot with all the necessary amenities.
Great location out of town but close enough to walk to. Nice and quiet location. Used the lobster boiler a couple times!
There's nothing as nice as eating, fresh lobsters on the dock.
Enjoy a picnic on the shore at Barrett's Park or take a nice walk across the foot bridge to town. On your way back from town, stop into one of the lobster retailers, watch the lobster men unloading their catch and pick up fresh lobster to cook and eat on our dock. The cottage is just 4 miles from a world class golf course and the Botanical Garden. Take a day trip to Monhegan Island, a lobster bake at Cabbage Island, whale watching, go lobstering or deep sea fishing on a charter boat, and sailing on a sunset cruise. Our YMCA offers day passes if you would like to workout, play tennis, walk on the track or swim in the new pool. Take in a movie at the Harbor Light Cinema. Enjoy a round of mini golf and an ice cream at the Dolphin golf or take a ride on the train at the railway village after viewing their collection of antique autos. The Boothbay Region is a wonderful place to unwind, relax and disconnect from reality.
Take a day trip to Freeport for a day of shopping at L.L. Bean and the outlet stores.
