Welcome to SeaGlass Cottage in East Boothbay! Nestled between a steep hillside and the edge of the Linekin Bay, at SeaGlass you will be surrounded by stunning beauty and immersed in nature. It is not unusual to see seals, osprey, and eagles. You are so close to the water, it feels like being on a boat, and the western exposure provides you absolutely breathtaking sunsets.
There is also a 200' long deep-water dock with a large sundeck and sitting area that has a swim ladder, and can accommodate anything from a kayak to a 25 foot boat. At low tide there is a large private rocky oceanfront area (this area is underwater at high please don't think white sandy beach), that is great for beach combing, digging for clams or catching crabs. Bring your water shoes!
The cottage itself loaded with charm and filled with nooks and crannies. It features an open floor plan with high pitched exposed beam ceilings, and is covered in wainscotting. SeaGlass was professionally decorated and features high quality linens, including down bedding and soft towels.There is also fast high speed internet, WIFI and a 32' HD TV.
The main bedroom, on the second floor, is open to the first floor and is accessed by a small spiral staircase. It has beautiful pumpkin pine floors, a high pitched ceiling and great water views. The second bedroom is accessed by a ladder and is a small sleeping loft. It has a queen bed and two small dressers. There is also a screened-in porch which provides another cozy spot to read a book or surf the web.
This location provides an incredibly peaceful retreat to get away from it all and relax, surrounded by some of the most beautiful views anywhere. But, if you are looking for more action, it is only 4 miles to Boothbay Harbor, which is home to many fine dining and casual restaurants, shops and galleries. It is only 3 miles to the popular Ocean Point where you can relax on the rocks and take in the breathtaking views. One of the areas most scenic hiking trails, The Linekin Preserve, is only 2/10ths of a mile away. Also nearby is the Boothbay Country Club, the Maine Botanical Gardens, and numerous boat excursions including whale watches, schooners tours and trips to Monhegan Island and Ram Island Light House. It is also a great home base for daytrips, with much of the mid-coast's favorite attractions within an hour's drive.
**Access - The setting for the cottage is stunning and unique. It is literally built on a rocky ledge at the bottom of a steep hill and sits right beside the edge of the bay. Because there is no way to drive a car down to it, guests park up by the owner's property and walk down a more gradual, grassy slope that goes around the steeper part of the hill. The total walk is about 75 yards long. We have a couple of carts to assist with luggage and supplies. For this reason, the cottage would not be suitable for those with mobility issues.
**The bathroom is small. The shower is 48" wide which is larger than a typical camp shower but has a low ceiling. It may be uncomfortable for those over 6'3". There is an outdoor shower but there is not privacy provided for it.
** Both bedrooms are open lofts. The master is accessed by a spiral staircase. The second bedroom is a sleeping loft accessed by a ladder.
**The setting may also be inappropriate for young children, due to some steep drop offs.
**Parking is limited and there is no room for RV's large trucks or trailers. It will fit up to 2 regular sized cars but is better suited for 1
**The large dock, known locally as 'Daddy Long Legs' is also home to our personal motor boat. Although, we will occasionally walk by the cottage to access the boat, we consider the dock and the area surrounding the cottage to be your private space and spend no additional time there at all. If we are to pass by we will notify you in advance.
- We accept boats up to 25' at the dock. The water is approximately 4' deep at the very lowest low tide and about 5' at a typical low tide. There are no moorings available for guest's use.
