My Happy Place!
Our visit to Boothbay Harbor over the 4th of July holiday was fantastic! Super cute & charming cottage, comfortable, clean, and a great location! It’s a short walk to the Harbor where you’ll find all sorts of stores, restaurants, and fun things to do. The cottage has everything you need, even if you want to cook your own lobsters! They also have games, lots of movies, and plenty of tv channels. If you like to sit outside, the deck is great as well! Cyndy and Skip were wonderful - very friendly, helpful, great resources for anything you want to know about the area, and just went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. My parents were staying at a campground nearby and lost their way trying to find the cottage...Cyndy and Skip went to find them. It was super sweet. Overall, we really enjoyed our time here and we know that you will too!! We definitely plan to stay again at Skippers Cottage in the future!
Great little cottage
Skippers Cottage is a perfect place to stay in Boothbay Harbor. Only a few blocks from downtown for convenience but secluded enough for privacy. Everything that you would need is here for your stay. Cyndy and Skipper met us when we arrived and were as warm as long time friends. Having lived in the area for a long time they are able and willing to give advice or suggestions about local places to visit or dine. Although we have been to the area many times they were able to provide us with a few tidbits we were unaware of. The cottage and its owners are wonderful and highly recommended.
Quiet neighborhood. Close to downtown Boothbay Harbor. About 5 minutes walk. Next to wood trails in the Penny Lake Preserve. Can go to grocery or drugstore by walk in about 15 or 20 minutes.
This is an authentic cute cottage with original windows, vintage interior doors, cedar shingles, etc. Charming place & charming owners. Enjoying drinking a cofee each morning on the porch/balcony equiped with chairs and tables, in the shade on covered East section or the sun on open South section. Bathroom and kitchen are clean and functionnal.
We felt right at home!
This cottage was very comfortable and cozy. Everything that you need during your stay is right there. It is close enough to the harbor that you can walk into town to shop, take a cruise on one of the boats, eat dinner and have ice cream. The property owners, Skip and Cyndy, are very personable and make you feel right at home. It was a great place to relax and unwind. We really enjoyed our stay there and would do it again.
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Skipper's Cottage! It's at the end of a dead end street in a very quiet and safe neighborhood, yet only a five minute walk down the hill into town. It had everything we needed and more. We were very comfortable there. The cottage is clean and well taken care of. We only wish we could've spent more time there! We kept very busy exploring. We loved Boothbay Harbor and also visited Wiscassett (make sure you go to Red's Eats and get a lobster roll!), Bath, Freeport, Ocean Point (in East Boothbay), Porter Preserve on Barters Island, Newcastle, Damariscotta, Bristol and my favorite, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse!
Cyndy and Skip were super helpful! They have a binder full of information on the area including restaurant menus, places to hike and local activities like boat tours etc. They were just a phone call away if we needed anymore information too! They were so friendly and accommodating!
I highly recommend Skipper's Cottage! We hope to return!
Charming New England home
We loved the cottage and it's quaint character. Lovely, large open deck, the house was well stocked with classic board games that our children (and the grown ups) enjoyed. It is conveniently located close to downtown Boothbay Harbor. The gas stove was a welcome sight for a family that enjoys cooking.
