This lovely, three-bedroom and dog-friendly Boothbay vacation rental boasts amazing cove views and is a bird-watcher's paradise with buffleheads (small American sea ducks), blue herons, egrets, and many other species viewable right on the water. Sit in the comfortable living room and watch the wildlife as you relax and appreciate the tranquil view.
Located on a little more than two acres, this secluded Boothbay Harbor getaway also has a perennial garden, complete with a lily pond. It is ideal for a peaceful family retreat for up to seven guests.
With an eclectic mix of antiques and modern furniture, you will feel right at home here. On entry, you're immediately mesmerized by the amazing view of the cove. A Kurzweil digital grand piano dominates the living room so that you can tickle the ivory at your leisure, as you gaze upon beautiful ocean views. A large white sofabed and matching armchair, a flatscreen TV, a fireplace, and a sliding glass door complete this bright and airy spot. Savor a glass of wine or a morning cup of coffee on the beautiful deck, which has patio seating for six as well as two comfortable chairs.
The library lies at the back of the house on the main floor and has a comfortable sea foam green couch and two armchairs, as well as hardwood floors, a leather ottoman trunk, and a grandfather clock. A built-in bookshelf affords guests a great reading selection and Maine-centric and nautical paintings dot the walls.
The open-floor plan extends to the bright and expansive full kitchen, which showcases stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, including a breakfast bar and a collection of pretty blue and white china. The gourmand in your party will delight in the many kitchen accoutrements available, as well as the plethora of counter space to whip up a chef-worthy repast. Savor it all at the wooden eight-seat dining table in the exquisite formal dining room that overlooks the perennial gardens. A half bath lies just down the hall.
Head upstairs to the formal sleeping quarters. The house boasts three impeccably decorated bedrooms. Think clean lines and bright and cheerful interiors. The master suite has a full bed with clean white linens and pops of color here and there. Recline on the two armchairs as you look out over the lily pond or perennial gardens. A white armoire and antique bed bench complete the space. The master bath features a standalone shower and white decor.
A second bedroom also treats guests to a full bed, a grandfather clock, hardwood floors, and exposed wood beams. A third bedroom features a twin day bed with trundle and a white armchair, as well as built-in bookshelves. Another full bath with a tub lies just down the hall.
Guests have access to a washer and dryer on-site as well as free WiFi, a DVD player and board games. The outdoor lily pond will become one of your favorite places to relax after a whirlwind day of sightseeing. You can even bring your dogs, though a nightly fee and a 25-lb weight limit will apply.
Boothbay Harbor is the heart of the entire Boothbay region in Lincoln County. From miles of scenic hiking trails on land trusts to coastal beaches with lovely breezes to mom-and-pop shops harking back yesteryear, you're truly away from big city life. The Maine State Aquarium is nearby as are other historic and scenic sites.
Relax and recharge at this wonderful Maine vacation rental and enjoy a peaceful escape!
