Description of the Boothbay Harbor vacation cottage rental
The Hillside Cottage at Harborfields has an excellent view of the harbor over the fields, from a large wrap-around deck. Hillside comfortably accommodates four or five guests. There is a large master bedroom with queen bed and vaulted ceiling, and two twin beds plus a bunk in the living room. A woodstove and electric heaters take the edge off those cool foggy days. The fully equipped kitchen includes a toaster, coffee maker, and microwave as well as an outdoor charcoal grill (in addition to the range and refrigerator). Linens and towels are provided, and extra supplies are on hand in the linen shed. Guests have access to the dock, tidal beach and other amenities, including a coin laundry, and the best rope swing in the state of Maine! No TVs or telephones, but we do offer free WiFi internet access on premises.

We hold the cottage for returning guests until January 1st, but we will take waiting list requests before then.
Area Information
Harborfields Housekeeping Cottages is a family-friendly, pet-friendly, and boater-friendly vacation cottage destination with a quarter mile of shoreline on West Boothbay Harbor, and 8 acres of woods and fields. Our waterfront and dock is a hub of activity for boating, fishing, and swimming. In addition to the Hillside Cottage, we feature another four distinct one-bedroom cottages, one two-bedroom cottage, a studio cottage, a 5-bedroom authentic 1780 farmhouse, and a 6-bedroom lodge, each with its own unique water view, surrounding our meadow and lining our shore. We are quiet and secluded, yet still convenient to the town center. Relax in friendly informality and enjoy an old-fashioned Maine vacation—the way life can be—since 1948!

The location was beautiful and the owners very friendly and attentive, without being overly so. Liked the location, the privacy and the coziness.

Beautiful view

We had a great get-away. The view from the cottage was breath-taking. The tire swing was a great hit with our five year old.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"Great spot. Really comfy cabin. Kitchen totally well stocked. Great swimming dock. Our dog had a great time, too. Many thanks!!"

Liz in the Hillside Cottage, August 2011

"We recently spent a long weekend in the Boothbay Harbor area. We stayed at Harborfields, which is a family owned grouping of cottages on West Boothbay Harbor. It was a cluster of small individual cottages right on the Harbor. The location was so peaceful and scenic."

"A Peaceful Place to Stay. We stayed here for a week one summer and we were very happy. The cabins are well appointed and have the basic necessities. The Cottages are located very close to the water and have a beautiful view."
