’15 Season

“A beautiful place to get away! The cottage was really nice and definitely felt like a home away from home. The views and landscape were amazing! The owners were really friendly and we can’t wait to go back!”

“We are staying at the Ocean View cottage and we love the place! Charming cottage, beautiful view and very quiet, great seafood. Having a great time!”

Michele Sincard – New York City, NY

“Our family really enjoyed the Oceanview cottage. We liked being close to Boothbay Harbor, but a bit away from the crowds. The cottage was very comfortable and had wonderful views of the water from the living room and deck. We didn’t cook much with all the great restaurants, but the kitchen had everything you could ask for. We found the owners to be very friendly, helpful and attentive. There is lots to do in the area – we enjoyed the lighthouses, hiking, birdwatching and exploring the coast. We would definitely stay at this property again.”

“We stayed at the Lakeside Cottage in early August 2015. All the comforts of home!! It was so nice to have a place to stay where we could bring our dog. Scott was great to deal with! Any issues and questions were addressed immediately. Great location close to Barrett Park and Boothbay Harbor. Quiet, peaceful and serene! Can’t wait to go back!!”

 A wonderful place

We arrived at the house on Sunday 6/9 and left Sunday 6/16 and had such a wonderful time we changed our plans so we could come back for the Windjammer party. We came back Friday 6/21 and left Thursday 6/27. The house is very comfortable and convenient to everything. The owners are terrific and easy to deal with. The did all the touristy things from boat rides; tours of the Botanical Gardens; shows at the Opera House; movies and side trips. The restaurants are very good to great and we even made a special trip to Rockland and took a 1 hour boat trip with 22 others to have dinner at the Nebo Lodge. We loved everything about our visit!

Kids said “Best vacation ever”

 “Kids said ‘Best vacation ever.’ They don’t want to leave! Here primarily for Windjammer Days and everything was outstanding.”

One level cottage is great!

 “Thanks for a wonderful relaxing two days! We loved your house and all of the peace and quiet! Our one year old, Connor, loved running around the one level house and exploring!”

Happy son on vacation

 We had a lovely few days in Maine. The cottage is so peaceful with gorgeous views. Our boys loved exploring the rocky coastline. In the words of our son, Rohan, ‘You can hike in the woods here. I like spending time with my family, seeing my dog happy and the food.’ Thank you.”

What a quaint quiet getaway!

We thoroughly relaxed-Linc to write his paper, Tessa and I to enjoy walks to Linekin Bay Resort and Bartlett Park. Never made it to the Gardens-will just have to come back. Thank you for sharing.

Our last minute vacation!

 “The best part of our stay was our own personal deck or shall I say, the dogs’ own private porch?! Mike enjoyed many mornings sitting out on the porch reading his book. We enjoyed some wonderful meals at local restaurants as recommended by your wonderful supply of pamphlets and information.  The location of the cottage was perfect as we could just run out to the market for our needs (much closer than at our own home!) Also very convenient for my afternoon of shopping so Mike could just pick me up after I was done. Your cottage was very well supplied for all of our needs. We had brought our own flashlight, books, movies, sheets, and towels but realized it was all supplied already. Oh, and the WiFi- Big bonus! Thanks again for a wonderful week of R and R.”

Lakeside Cottage is a real find

Very nice place. Had a great time. A lot of pet friendly rentals are pretty bad. This one is a real find. Thanks.”

Ideas for a rainy day

 “Thanks, Susan and Chip, for a great week. The cottage was perfect. All of the information extremely helpful and the games and movies were fun to have. We loved the Botanical Gardens, kayaking, Barrett Park and the ideas for rainy day activities (fortunately it only rained one day).  Our first trip to Maine was definitely wonderful and Boothbay is beautiful and welcoming. Thanks for the experience!

 Ready to relax and have fun

“Your Lakeside Cottage is the perfect Maine retreat. You’ve supplied everything one needs to relax and have fun! We’ve had a wonderful week in Maine, it’s so quiet here. We highly recommend the day trip to Monhegan Island-well worth it. Thanks so much.”
 Kathy and Rick- Sparks, Maryland

Daily dips in the lake and the ocean!
“Boothbay is fabulous and the house is a great place to start from. Enjoyed all of the amenities of this well-appointed house. Appreciate the dog gate on the deck! Really enjoyed the pink water lilies on the lake; they obligingly opened every morning. And the dock on the ocean- we swam practically every day. Jasmine still doesn’t have the courage to jump off but she loves to swim! Thank you so much for a beautiful vacation.
