Paradise Cottage is set in lush perennial gardens with woods behind and overlooking Linekin Bay on the ocean in Mid-Coast Maine with your own private beach on a small cove. We are just 3 miles from quaint Boothbay Harbor, yet our unique pastoral location makes us feel sequestered from the bustle of town. You can settle into the ebb and flow of tides, sunrise and sunset, and the harmony of wildlife. The twittering of birds and sloshing of waves are your surround sound. If you open your eyes early you can watch lobster boats slip out in the morning and then see the sunrise gradually work its way down the opposite shore. If the evening is still, listen for the distant tones of fog horns. March is for owls calling at night. April evenings are joyous with the return of laughing gulls and peepers singing from the pond. Yet antique shops, gourmet restaurants, live theater, and art studios are close-by, along with hiking; and in summer add in golf, fishing, and boat excursions; -- and always relaxation! Kayak, swim or beach-comb right from our shore. Gear down a notch or three; the pace is slower here. It's 'the way life should be!
We do accept Visa and Master Card, but only if you are willing to pay an extra 2.75%. Check or cash is preferable. One half the total rent is payable in advance as a deposit to hold your time; the remainder is due on arrival. If you are unable to keep your reservation, we ask that you reschedule at another available time, or we can try to re-rent your dates less a $100 rebooking fee as long as you give us at least 30 days to do so.
Besides being mesmerized by the ripples on the water, during gardening seasons you will find calm in the blooms just outside the windows and off the porch. In summer read a book while you enjoy the dappled shade on the deck overlooking the water or on one of the benches in the colorful perennial garden. Watch seagulls, osprey, and an occasional eagle ride the updrafts. In winter you will observe a variety of ducks. Go beach-combing to discover varied creatures that abound along the shore of the Gulf of Maine. Borrow our kayak and paddle over the bay if it's calm. Writers will find Paradise Cottage a peaceful private spot where they can work on their manuscripts. Day hikes in one of the many land preserves are a favorite outdoor activity. Or, you can take a picnic to Ocean Point, and watch the waves roll in from the open sea, the lobster boats haul traps, and ships pass by. How about a romantic sail at sunset? Many boat excursions are offered in nearby Boothbay Harbor. You will also find lighthouse tours, museums, and art studios starting with ours next door! Some of the best eateries are right here in Boothbay!
Visit the East Boothbay General Store for gourmet sandwiches, pizza, morning coffee and paper. The harbor is just three miles away, and offers many shops, boat excursions, and gourmet restaurants. Live theater has a dramatic presence with events nightly at the Opera House, and Family Night on Tuesdays. Afternoon tea is a yearly tradition with some of our long time renters. Peruse the aquarium in summer, where children's programs and classes enhance the quality of the coastal experience. Take a short boat ride to Burnt Island (Mon or Thurs) where costumed guides re-enact life of a lighthouse keeper's family in the late '50's. Go antiquing, or gallery hopping starting with nearby Paradise Studio. L.L.Bean and other outlet stores are just an hour away in Freeport. Acadia National Park is a three to four hour drive down east, with miles of scenic coastline and quaint villages to explore in between. Perhaps you would like deep sea fishing or golf.

We offer guests the option to bring their own linens, or they may rent ours for $50 per stay for the whole house, or $25 for just two people.
There is just one ceiling fan in the living room. New for the winter is a functional wood stove to heat the living/dining room and kitchen.
Guests have the use of our beach in the cove (pictured in the view from the middle bedroom). It is a short amble across the street and down through more gardens. Photos number 20 above is a view of Paradise Cottage when looking back from the pebble beach.
You may borrow our two person sit-on-top kayak. We also have a lapstrake rowboat with and interesting story. You may use both after signing a release. We provide life jackets which are required when on the water.
Our location just three miles from the grocery store and all the activities in Boothbay Harbor, yet sequestered in the woods on quiet Linekin Bay, adds tremendously to the relaxation of your vacation.

About:When I purchased the family summer property, it needed complete revamping! I alternated a month in Colorado and a month in Boothbay while Paradise Cottage (my grandmother's summer house) was winterized and expanded, and Seanook (the vacation house of my childhood) was practically torn down and rebuilt....
