Experience historic charm with plenty of modern comfort at this dog-friendly Boothbay Harbor vacation rental, a three-bedroom home with beautiful ocean views, a private deck, and an ideal harbor-facing location for families and couples.
Wonderfully situated only steps from the pedestrian bridge that connects the eastern and western shores of Boothbay Harbor, this two-level cottage is within a quarter-mile of restaurants, shops, art galleries, and recreational outfitters. You'll have easy access to the thriving activity of this popular town, as well as scenic harbor views to come home to.
Built in 1864, this historic home has been lovingly maintained and updated, creating a bright and tidy space for as many as five guests and one family dog (for a small nightly fee).
Step through the front door into the newly refinished kitchen, a cheerful and sunny room with hardwood floors, a butcher block island, and granite countertops. Whether you plan to prepare full family dinners or pick up fresh lobster rolls from Boothbay Lobster Wharf just down the road, you'll find stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher) to make cooking and cleaning a breeze.
There's space for the entire family around the country dining room table, but don't forget about the deck on pristine summer afternoons. Fire up the gas grill to cook some fresh local haddock, and enjoy your meal around the patio table.
Back inside, the cozy living room is the perfect place to curl up with a novel or spend the evening playing a board game with your kids. And with soft carpeting and comfortable seating, you'll be able to relax in absolute comfort while watching a family favorite on the flatscreen cable TV.
And if you're worried about leaving your work at home, don't be. There's a desk in the downstairs bedroom, as well as WiFi to keep you in touch.
With three bedrooms, one full bathroom, and one half-bath, the Captain's Cottage can accommodate as many as five guests. Upstairs, you'll find a master bedroom with a king-size bed and a guest room with two twins; both rooms have private TVs and one even has a remote-controlled air conditioning unit for warm summer nights. The full upstairs bathroom also has an elegant claw-foot tub.
On the main floor, you'll find a third bedroom with a twin bed, as well as a half-bathroom with a private washer/dryer for any wet or salty clothes.
Once home to shipbuilders and lobster canneries, the charming town of Boothbay Harbor is now an epicenter of yachting, whale-watching, and other coastal activities. Spend the day at the Maine State Aquarium just three miles west, or get to know the friendly guides at Tidal Transit Kayak on an excursion to Burnt Island, Damariscove Island, or Ram Island.
And if you're looking to bring home some tuna, cod, and haddock of your own, book a full- or half-day fishing excursion with Blackjack Sportfishing, the operator of which also owns the Captain's Cottage.
