New listing! Oceanfront home w/ a wood stove, full kitchen, & stunning bay views

This recently renovated home offers a peaceful escape from civilization right on the water. Locally known as having the best view on the Boothbay Peninsula, this cottage looks out on Christmas Cove, both Inner and Outer Heron Islands, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Watch local lobstermen check their traps just yards off of the deck as you listen to the waves lap against the rocks just below. Back inside, warm up by the wood stove as you break out a board game or watch a favorite cable or Netflix show on the flatscreen TV. This vacation rental also features a compact, but full kitchen with everything you need to prepare home-cooked meals.

What's nearby:
Less than a mile-and-a-half away from your front door is Linekin and Burley Preserve, home to quintessential hiking trails with stunning scenery. Downtown Boothbay Harbor hosts several restaurants and shops as well as access to whale watching tours and cruises. Explore the acres of manicured gardens at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens or take the kids to marvel at the local aquatic wildlife at the Maine State Aquarium, both just a little over eight miles from this home.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay! The pictures just do not give justice to the view. We arrived at night which was a truly magical experience, walking down the lighted path through the woods and watching the moon rise over the water and waking up to the sunrise, breathtaking views, and of course the lobster boats. The cottage is somewhat rustic, but is stylish and nicely laid out with good storage spaces, a well stocked kitchen, supplies (but bring your own board games), comfortable furniture, cozy blankets, and a fabulous deck overlooking the water. We enjoyed neighborhood walks, day trips to Rockland, Camden, Lincolnville, Pemaquid Point and Damariscotta, exploring the Boothbay area and a lot of time on the deck (the foggy days with coffee and a book were the best). We can't wait to come back.

This was our 2nd time at the cottage. We absolutely love this hidden gem. The view is breathtaking each time. We spent our mornings and evenings on the deck watching the boats stroll by and the waves crashing below. The cottage is cozy and has all the accommodations you need for a great vacation house. We especially loved the telescope and books all over. We look forward to it every couple of years.

Cute house. The view is everything though. Can sit out there for days and it just doesn’t get old. Great neighborhood. Close to town. Can’t wait to go back!

The house and setting were more than we ever dreamed possible. Even when you are inside the house you feel like you are right on the water. It was so peaceful and quiet but close enough to town, etc. We already booked our stay for next summer!

Yes ! The view is stunning from being right across from Inner Heron Island and open ocean to the right. The boat traffic is endless from working lobster boats, power boats, sail boats and an occasional mega yacht flying foreign flags. The sun rises slightly to the left of the deck and is beautiful. I like to sleep in so if you do to make sure to keep the blinds closed because it is powerful and beautiful.
Sunset is behind the cottage and the houses on Inner Heron Island light up and their windows appear on fire. There are hundreds of lobster buoys out front and when the sun sets they explode with different colors. This all starts at about 4 P.M. and lasts about an hour and a half.
BTW the cottage is fantastic also. Newly decorated and has everything one would need. But the view !! Magical !!

Great place. Peaceful and relaxing. Right on the edge of the ocean. Quick drive to restaurants and stores. Cookware and dishes were plentiful. Loved the binoculars and telescope!
