Property Description

This beautiful, roomy classic Maine summer cottage has been in the family for generations and is filled with happy family memories. It is fully equipped, spacious and comfortable, inside and outside. There is no better place on earth than the front porch as the sun goes down and casts its light on the hulls of the yachts anchored in the harbor.

FIRST FLOOR: Inviting, comfortable living room with oversized fireplace (stocked wood box), games galore (including bumper pool table), two seating areas, bookshelves filled with classics and contemporary books. Picture window looks out to the harbor and islands beyond. Formal dining room with table that seats 10 easily, picture window out to harbor and islands. Old fashioned pantry with sink. Eat-in country kitchen, fully equipped new large refrigerator, all utensils, dishes, pots and pans, cable TV with DVD. Contemporary 'fridge, dishwasher, microwave. Downstairs bedroom off kitchen has twin beds; bathroom with step-in shower across hall from twin bedroom. Large front porch for eating and lounging. Enclosed back porch with washer/dryer. Charcoal grill off kitchen.

SECOND FLOOR: Four bedrooms, two in front of house with ocean views, each with its own bath; two in back of house, one with enclosed sleeping porch. Bedroom 1: queen bed, bath with shower. Bedroom 2: queen bed, bath with shower and tub. Bedroom 3: queen bed, enclosed sleeping porch off of it with twin beds (ideal for children). Bedroom 4: twin beds, two dressers. Bedrooms 3 and 4 each has a sink for washing up. All sinks are original white porcelain in excellent condition. Shared bathroom for bedrooms 3 and 4 off upstairs hall has shower. Another enclosed small porch with 3 twin beds off front bedrooms.

Maximum number of people at standard rate is ten. Up to twelve allowed with a $50 per person, per night additional charge.

All linens provided with house including sheets and plenty of towels. Beds are made up clean when you arrive.

Outside, lawn slopes down to 75 feet of ocean shoreline with small sand/pebble beach and rocks for young children. Large deep water dock, swimming ladder. Enjoy spectacular views of the harbor and Tumbler, Squirrel, and Fisherman's Islands from the dock's benches, the porch, living room, dining room, and two front bedrooms. Pick fresh flowers from the garden.

Kayaks available for use.

NOTE: A dinghy tied to the dock may be used by owners to get to/from boats during rental periods. Owners will go directly to dock and not disturb house occupants.

ENTRANCE: Driveway brings you in facing the garage; house is down the slope on left. Enter through the lattice back porch, into the kitchen. (Or walk around the right of the house to the ocean-facing side and come up the front porch steps.)

ONE MILE from bustling Boothbay Harbor for restaurants, shopping, bookstore, library, art galleries, and regular concert series. Within one hour (easy day trips) are extensive hiking, antique shops, more art galleries, and the shops of Freeport.

BOATS AVAILABLE: Two sea kayaks and one double kayak. Other boats may be rented in town, and can be tied up at the dock during rental period.

AMBIENCE: This is a classic Maine cottage, comfortable, much-loved and well-used, ideal for a few families or a family reunion. Absolutely no smoking in the house or on the property.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING RESERVATIONS: We do not take reservations until mid-January, when the calendar for the following summer will be filled in. As a family home, family members line up dates before we make it available for rent. MOST SUMMERS there is a week available in mid-July, and a week available in mid-August. If you are able to get away in June or September, those months are beautiful - especially September, and they are much more widely open.

Parents of The Groom

Our son got married at the Costal Maine Botanical Gardens on the 7th. We along with his siblings and a Aunt and Uncle stayed in the house the week before and a few days after the wedding. The house was perfect. I felt like I was living in my dream summer cottage with all the necessary comforts of today like a dishwashers and new washer/drier, b... Read More

Perfect BH place to stay

We knew Boothbay Harbor would deliver on it's charm because I grew up vacationing there as a kid. However, when we rented The Hull to celebrate my mother's milestone birthday and relive old memories, we never expected the place we stayed to be such a great contributing factor to a fantastic week! The entire property was very well-maintained, and... Read More

We stayed at this wonderful home with my extended family in late June. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay--plenty of space, bedrooms, bathrooms, and beautiful views. We enjoyed walking into town (less than a mile away) with plenty of shops and restaurants to keep us busy for the full week and having our own dock with kayaks... Read More

Wonderful owners, wonderful home

The home has authentic Maine cottage charm, character, a spacious living room, numerous bedrooms, and a view to die for overlooking the harbor with all the activities on the water. The yard is very large, nicely sloped, open, yet private. If I could have a second home in Maine, this would be it! I wo... Read More
