Very comfortable home
Erin S. | Feb 2024
We took a quick winter getaway to freezing Boothbay. This little studio apartment on the second floor was a perfect cozy spot. It is nicely decorated, very rustic style and comfortable. Everything we needed for our stay was available, easy to find and nicely organized. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, in-town place to stay, summer or winter.
Kirsten N. | Feb 2024
The whole cabin has a sweet charm. Creaky floors and those exposed beams giving you all the rustic feels. The kitchen was stocked for our cooking adventures. Although it is aged, everything works well and you have plenty of utensils. The glass indoor seating was our go-to spot for morning coffee, to check out the cold mornings in the warmth of the home. The pond was tons of fun to check out as it was frozen during our stay. The fire place was very charming and cozy, providing us a great opportunity to utilize the small library in the home. Now, it's not the Ritz, so if you're after high-end glam, maybe look elsewhere. You should expect a dated shower (tho there is plenty of hot water) and kitchen. But if you're down for a chill time, embracing the rustic vibe in nature, this cabin is spot-on.
