Space 1,200 sq. ft.

Overview

About the property

3 Bed, /2 Bath, Spectacular Views, Waterfront, Close to Town, Sandy Swim Ar

B's at Sea is located on the Ocean Point peninsula. Linekin Bay is to the west, and the Damariscotta River to the east. Perched high on a cliff overlooking the

river and ocean, B's at Sea is a soothing retreat away from the bustle of Boothbay Harbor, yet close enough to enjoy all of its amenities. Newly updated and comfortably appointed for up to 8 guests, with 2 full bathrooms, new washer & dryer, gas grill, full kitchen with dishwasher, lobster feasting equipment, deck, all new bedding, pillows, linens, towels and beach towels, new furnishings, high speed wi-fi, cable tv, shared association sandy (at low tide) swim and picnic area 3 doors away, suitable for launching your canoe or kayak.

One queen bedroom, second bedroom with two twins, pull-out queen sofa bed, (with 2" foam topper for extra comfort) and new loft, accessed by a ship-type ladder, (spring 2016) which sleeps two on a full sized futon.

A distant foghorn or the lapping surf may lull you to sleep at night. The murmur of lobster boat engines will likely be the first sounds of the morning. The sun rises early in Maine, and so do many of the lobstering-folk! It is a pleasant, calming hum, however.

The enormous stone fireplace warms the cottage on cool nights. Firewood and starter logs provided. Several games, books, and magazines as well as family DVDs, are kept at B's at Sea for guests to enjoy.

Those more agile may get down to the water's edge and sit on the rocks, but it is somewhat of a challenging descent! Please exercise caution, and supervise children carefully. We will continue to improve the property in order to make the trek easier, and will update the listing accordingly.

About Beth G.

My husband and I bought this cottage in June of 2015 and spent the summer renovating and restoring it. It had been unoccupied for quite some time, and had become dated and overgrown. I grew up in Maine, and have many wonderful memories of Boothbay Harbor as a child, not to mention worked during summer months waiting tables at several fine establishments in the area.

Beth G. purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Beth G. chose Boothbay Harbor Area

East Boothbay is classic Maine. The small village, general store, post office, historic shipyard, and shingled summer cottages make this part of the region extraordinarily special and iconic. Once again, you are close to the harbor, but also far enough to get away from the crowds!

What makes this cottage unique

It was apparent through the overgrowth, that the water views were fantastic, and that the place really just needed some attention. Lobster boat engines can be heard early in the morning right outside the windows, as the bright, eastern sunshine pours in!

The high level of boating traffic yields something interesting to watch at all times. Whether it be lobster fishing, sailing regattas, large luxury vessels, sightseeing cruises, or persoal watercraft, on a sunny day it is constant.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beth G. asked me to write a few words about our stay at her house last fall.

When I was there, the trees had not quite turned. It was my first time to the Boothbay Harbor area and I was so impressed. This property is very private but also convenient to the town of Boothbay Harbor. When you are in the living room of the house, you feel like you are surrounded by water. The pictures on VRBO don't really do it justice. Though the house is just around 900 sf, it's very smartly laid out and feels quite spacious.. The kitchen was very well equipped and lacked nothing. We walked down to the little cove area (about 5 minutes from the house) and really enjoyed romping around on the rocks. We also took a short drive to Ocean Point and walked along a very scenic stretch of road. There is a decent amount of boat traffic on the water in front of the house and that was very entertaining. I would highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a clean, comfortable and cozy place with gorgeous coastal views. Thank you so much -- we are looking forward to coming back soon!

Coastal Cottage Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, words cannot express the feeling of happiness and contentment my family felt while staying here. The owner has a gift of decorating and designing in a way that made this cottage feel like it was our own! She has thought of everything you might need to make your stay the most enjoyable. The views from almost every room and window are just gorgeous! There are five in our family and there was plenty of room. The location is amazing, tucked away, yet so close and convenient to shopping and dining. We also saw quite a bit of wildlife and sealife while having coffee each morning and cocktails each evening right on the properties deck! Seals playing, an eagle landing in a nearby tree and deer walking in the yard. I just can't say enough good things about this lovely cottage and I hope to return next summer!

Relaxing Stay at This Well-Cared-For Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our adult daughter were absolutely delighted with our entire stay at Bee's. The house was meticulously clean and amply stocked, and the grounds thoughtfully cleared just enough to enhance the water views and yet maintain a wooded, private setting. The location could not have been more ideally located, with convenient access to groceries, restaurants and downtown Boothbay Harbor, yet far enough to get a sense of "being away from it all." We slept with the cool evening breezes coming through the windows and awoke to the birds chirping and rarely heard human noises other than our own. Sitting out on the balcony reading in the warm sun with cool breezes and sounds of the water and the birds was nothing short of idyllic and utterly relaxing. The views of the water are spectacular, enhanced by the majestic beauty of the surrounding pine trees. It's evident the owners not only care for their property, but enjoy it themselves, as it's well stocked for cooking and living. We loved being able to pop down to East Boothbay General Store for lattes and lobster roll, get groceries from Hannaford's, and one evening we discovered a delightful market in Boothbay Harbor where we selected grass-fed meats and local fish which the proprietor cooked up for us on his grill to take back to the house, complete with homemade side dishes. Lobsterman's Wharf, just a few minutes from the house, serves up a fabulous lobster and the freshest cod I've ever eaten (and I'm from New England originally). We did yoga at a lovely little studio in Boothbay Harbor - one of the friendliest I've been to. We'd planned to do more excursions, as there's so many places to hike and roam, yet were completely satisfied to spend most days reading and relaxing outside in the idyllic setting. Much gratitude to Beth for providing this wonderful sanctuary.

Great weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As this was late in the season, we were really happy that Beth opened her house up to us. As we got out of the car, the kids were already running and playing in the yard. We just decided to sit in the chairs and take in the fresh air and amazing views. There are great views from every room in the house, especially when you are sitting on the couch playing a little family UNO. Our 11 year old daughter loved the loft area to relax and sleep in. You will enjoy this great cottage overlooking the Boothbay area. Close to downtown but far enough out to feel like you are on your own island.

Simply "Perfect" Stay, Excellent views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

A simply "Perfect" cottage straight out of the Pottery Barn Magazine or Cottage Living, so clean bright and beautiful. The drive to the cottage was wonderful. From the moment we pulled into the drive way, it was breath taking views from the cliff overlooking the ocean. My husband jumped out of the car so fast I wondered if he remembered to put the car in park. The views from inside the cottage are just as perfect. The kitchen window overlooks the ocean, and the living room has all around spectacular views (the telescope was so neat). The cottage is stocked with many things/amenities you may have forgotten. I love how everything is marked so you know which light switch is for what light, etc.. Beth (the owner) has thought of everything and is easy to work with. The relaxation we felt while enjoying the view was mesmerizing. With all the photos we took we could design postcards. Our 3 night stay was exactly what my husband and I needed to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. We would like to stay again and bring our kids.

Very nice cottage overlooking the ocean, private, beautiful views, close to everything in Boothbay

  • 5 of 5

We’ve used HomeAway for vacation rentals several times and without a doubt my husband and I both agreed this was the nicest place we’ve stayed at. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. Everything we would've needed was there. The location is beautiful and private. Yet we were still close enough to enjoy all that Boothbay has to offer easily. I was concerned about the heat since the nights are getting colder but we are perfectly fine with the kerosene heater and the wood fireplace was a beautiful addition to enjoy at nights.

Boothbay Harbor is the quintessential Maine coastal community. Combining a commercial fishing harbor with arts and tourism creates a fun and lively atmosphere. Breathtaking natural scenery of evergreen covered islands, rocky cliffs and ledges, and bold, crashing surf abound in the region. Many shops, restaurants, boating excursions, and entertainment options to choose from. Whale watches, island tours, lobster bakes, art galleries, or just sitting pier-side and enjoying the boating activities all around.

East Boothbay provides a more relaxed pace, while still being a convenient 4 miles to the action of the Harbor. Renowned Ocean Point of East Boothbay enjoys absolutely spectacular views, and is one of the oldest summer colonies in Maine. Several restaurants are located along Ocean Point Road, (route 96) as well as art galleries and scenic walks.
