Boothbay Harbor Lobster Cove Cottages, Kayak,Ocean
There is a dock for your kayak or boat or use our new kayaks included in your rental. For larger boats we have a mooring with 7' of water at low tide.
You can cook your own Maine lobster and steamers over a wood fire in our outdoor fireplace, pots and pans provided or walk down the street and have your shore dinner prepared by one of the local restaurants. Be sure to save room for some delicious Smore's roasting your marshmallow's over the open fire.
In the fall when the leaves change colors and the cooler nights arrive, we have a romantic, built-in gas fireplace that will keep you warm and toasty.
The town center is a 5 minute walk where there is unlimited shopping and local seafood restaurants, boats are moored and at dockside in the harbor.
From the harbor you can catch a whale watching boat, deep sea fishing boat, take a sail on the Eastwind with Captain and author Herb Smith, or just a nice cruise around the harbor and surrounding islands and watch the seals, puffins and whales in their natural habitat.
This is a Maine vacation at its best and one that will call you back to the unique and beautiful shores of Boothbay Harbor.
Transportation is available from the Portland International Jetport or the Concord Coach bus stop in Wiscasset.
We are located just off the Maine Island Trail between the Sheepscot and Damariscotta Rivers. Paddle right up to our dock for a few nights rest and the exploration of Boothbay Harbor on foot and approximately 5 miles north of Damariscove Island. The cottage is adequate for two people only. No extra overnight guests allowed. This is a non-smoking (inside or out) and no pet property.
Just a short drive from the city to enjoy the quietness of the nature that surrounds you! Don't wait ...if you have a week in mind you can hold a reservation for a small fee !

Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Boothbay Harbor, Maine
August 4, 2015
In all aspects of the stay, this place was outstanding. The hosts, Nancy and Mac were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best it could be. The cottage was immaculate and decorated very well to give an atmosphere of a great seaside getaway. It is an easy walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor with many restaurants available. Cant say enough great things about it.
Tom and Diane, We thank you for a great review and strive to ensure that our guests have everything they need for a memorable vacation on the shores of Linekin Bay. Mac especially enjoyed the striper fishing with you and thought the catch was delicious eating. I did also....Hurry back to Boothbay Harbor. We wait for your return...Mac and Nan

The cottage was the cutest and most comfortable ever, and super clean. The location to Boothbay Harbor was the best! Nancy and Max Morris were helpful, sincere, and down to earth, and respectful of our privacy and well being. The near by two minute walk to the great little park on Lobster cove bay was peaceful, serene, and wonderful. We would return without a doubt. The only suggestion we have is to put out a sign at the end of the road directing people to the location of "LOBSTER COVE COTTAGES" so folks know where to find them. GREAT ACCOMODATIONS, GREAT OWNERS, GREAT LOCATION and a wonderful vacations. Not one regret. Connie and Ron, New Hampshire
Rest, relaxation and hospitality
September 10, 2013
This was our second stay at the Lobster Cove cottages. This year we needed more R&R than running about, and the view from the cottage provided us with hours of peaceful contemplation, while the kayaks provided a closer look at life on Linekin Bay! The charm of this Maine get away is only matched by the hospitality of Nancy and Mac, and the reason we returned. They have made us feel welcomed and cared for in the days we spent with them. Can't wait to return again next year!
Annie and Jack, It truly was our delight to have you as guests again this year ! It's the simple pleasures of life just chatting for a while, looking out over the bay and having friends like you both that really make a difference in our lives ! Do take care over the winter and we certainly will look for you again next season....Very sincerely, Nancy and Mac

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Lobster Cove Cottageâ€”very clean, cozy, and comfortable. We loved looking out over the bay and especially enjoyed the kayaks. Nan and Mac were wonderful hosts and even cooked a delicious lobster meal for us, complete with homemade blueberry pie.
It was great meeting you ! And above all, we are happy that you enjoyed our accommodations ! Wednesday of this week we are preparing another Downeast Lobster Bake for our guests from Connecticut so I have to get busy and make another blueberry pie. For best selection next season be sure to book you reservation early. Sincerely, Nan and Mac

I needed some rest and peace. This provided that and more. The cottage is cozy and immaculate. You wake to the sun rising and go to sleep to the sun setting over the ocean. Nancy and Mac are wonderful. I will go back!

Great Cottage in Great Location
July 27, 2013
We loved our cottage by the sea where we spent two idyllic weeks. It is located within walking distance of the town and across the inlet from a park. Included are two kayaks and a canoe and a floating dock. Mac and Nancy are wonderful hosts......the lobster /clam fest were memorable. You will not be disappointed!
Al and Suzanne,
We enjoyed getting to know you and meeting your family ! The Downeast Lobster bake is something that we started this year for guests who stay a week or longer....It's fun for us to see how delighted people are when they eat our "ocean to cooker" Maine lobster. They don't come any fresher than that....we can't wait for your return another season. We hope that your son liked the use of our mooring within sight of the cottage...take care, Mac and Nan Morris

My husband and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary and wanted to go back to the East coast where we got married. Boothbay Harbor (BBH) was the perfect place, but the Lobster Cove Cottage was what made it. The cottage was very cozy and situated on a cove with kayaks and great views. It was equipped with everything we needed for the week. The location allowed us to walk/bike to town or down the streets to the docks. Our hosts were very welcoming & friendly and showed us how a real lobsterbake is done. Every morning we woke to a beautiful sunrise or a foghorn. We loved both! We definitely hope to return in the near future!!!
Dianne and Rob, Thank you for your nice review ! We enjoyed your company! Our guests truly do become our friends! We will take you mackeral fishing again when you return. Right now we are fishing for stripers...hope to catch some...we will stay in contact with you...thanks again, Mac and Nancy

The stay was just what I needed. The views are awesome, waking up with the sunrise so colorful was amazing. I also, loved the fact that you could walk to town and didn't really need the car all the time. Great location and great owners. Will be back again. PS the restaurants are wonderful!!! Place so clean as well!!! Loved it....

So enjoyed our stay in this delightful cottage on linekin bay. Our hosts made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We will return to Boothbay Harbor and to this wonderful cottage.
Hi Diane and Tom, I found your wool socks under the bed after your departure. They are in the mail and you should receive them shortly. We are looking forward to your return next season and will cook you another Maine shore dinner with lobster, steamers and all the fixin's. Take care, Mac and Nan
Seaside Retreat on Linekin Bay
August 27, 2012
This up-to-date, cozy cottage on the Bay was a peaceful getaway for my husband and I. The beautiful view and charming cottage where only second to the warm and welcoming hospitality of our hosts Nancy and Mac. They welcomed us like family and even shared a Downeast clambake with us. The walking distance to town, kayaking at our door and the many trails nearby provided a memorable week of simple pleasures. We look forward to returning again. Our thanks to Nancy and Mac!

This property is a little gem. The cottage is clean, well equipped, feet from the waterfront and also a very short walk to the footbridge into the downtown area. There is a private dock with two new kayaks that we used to explore the bay. I even caught fish from my kayak. Speaking of fishing, Mac and Nancy took us to a local dock and taught us to fish for mackerel. After teaching us how to clean the fish, they let us use their outdoor cooking facilities to prepare both our mackerel and the steamer clams we purchased. They were very helpful when we needed it, but also gave us as much privacy as we desired. We look forward to returning to this little hideaway in the future.

Maine Coast Getaway
September 29, 2011
We wanted a peaceful, relaxing and scenic spot to spend our wedding anniversary, and this cabin was everything we could have hoped for. While cozy, the layout works to create different spaces within. We loved taking the canoe for a short ride to swim at Barrett Park. Even though you are right in town, with all the restaurants and shopping less than five minute's drive away, there is plenty of privacy. Nancy and Mac were there if we needed them, but left us on our own as we desired. If you're considering a trip to the Maine coast - and we think you should! - Boothbay Harbor is a perfect mix of all there is to offer, and this spot is a perfect home base from which to enjoy it.

First let me say how quaint, cute, adorable and cozy this cottage is! The weather was HORRIBLE! Freezing, raining and windy- but we managed to still have a wonderful, memorable vacation. The cottage is literally on the water with a lovely dock where we started our canoe ride- we would have had access to a great grill and outdoor stove to BBQ and steam lobsters, but sadly the weahter didn't permit. The cottage is a 5 minute walk to a lovely park overlooking the inlet where we played bocci for hours, 5 minutes from the co-op where we sat twice and stuffed ourself with lobster, steamers and beer and the cottage is a 10 minute walk over the bridge to delicious restaurants. I recommend the italian place if you over indulged yourself with seafood like we did. There are tons of inns, bed and breakfasts, and motels in Boothbay- the cottage has the prettiest view out of all of them, has a kitchen with full sized fridge and hotplate, and has the best bang for your buck (I researched)! Nancy was so welcoming and gave us some fun things to do. We headed to the nature preserve and hiked (yes, in the rain..) Highly recommend that. We came from LA to have a very Maine experience and that's exactly what Nancy, Boothbay and the Cottage delivered. I loved every second, rain or shine.

Having travelled from London looking for the perfect location to enjoy Maine's beautiful countryside, Mac and Nancy's cabin didn't disappoint. It was a cosy and well equipped holiday home with stunning waterside views, various outdoor pursuits on its doorstep and only a short walk from the lovely Boothbay Harbour. We would highly recommend the cabin to other couples visiting the region.

A week of relaxation !
August 25, 2010
We had a wonderful time during our stay at Nancy and Mac's cottage in BoothBay Harbor. They did everything possible to make sure we felt at home. The location is perfect: very quiet around the cottage and all kinds of activities at 10 minutes walk: boat tours, restaurants, art galeries, etc. The cottage is small but comfortable for 2 adults. We'll go back for sure.

My husband and I just returned from a week's vacation in Boothbay Harbor, ME. I have never been to Maine, but always wanted to visit there. After months of research on the on internet looking for "just the right" cottage on a harbor to stay, I ran across Nancy and Mac's place. It looked and sounded perfect and it was priced right, so I booked it and off to Maine we went. When I got there, the cottage exceeded our expectations. It is small, but perfect for a couple. The view of Linekin Bay was breathtaking and we spent a lot of our time enjoying the seabreezes on the deck. You don't need air conditioning because the cottage is filled with windows and there is a view out of each one of them. Of course, if you want to venture out to Boothbay Harbor, it is only a 10 minute walk over the footbridge where there are a lot of things to do like sailing, whale watching, clam bakes etc., as well as quant little shops and restuarants. Our hosts were very accommodating and if we have an opportunity to visit this area again, I will definately look up Nancy and Mac.

Cozy Cottage for Two on Linekin Bay
August 12, 2010
My husband and I spent 9 days at this cozy little cottage tucked away in the corner of Linekin Bay. We enjoyed the quiet and solitude its location provided, but were thrilled with the short walking distance to the fun and excitement found at the heart of Boothbay Harbor. The recently constructed cottage provided all that we needed for a more than pleasant stay! We enjoyed kayaking and "treasure hunting" several times of day in the quiet harbor and along the miles of shoreline available. Bicycling made getting around the area easy and a great way to see the local sites. We enjoyed a couple of delicious meals in Boothbay Harbor's fine restaurants and many homemade meals right in our very own cottage by the water. What could be better than enjoying home cooked seafood that you pulled from the ocean waters yourself? Lazy afternoons were spent on the dock bench reading a book or simply taking in the view of Barrett Park across the way. Cool evenings were spent relaxing on the bank of the shore sipping cocktails and taking in the slow-paced living as the sun slowly set and shined brightly across the harbor. At night we fell asleep to the peaceful sounds of nature and as we slept, the numerous opened windows provided a refreshing and almost constant "air conditioning" right from Mother Nature herself! Both of us were extremely satisfied with our stay at this cozy cottage for two on Linekin Bay and look forward to our return.

Nice Cottage In Great Location
August 23, 2009
This cottage is in an excellent location on Linekin Bay, overlooking a beach and harbor. Dining and shops are only a short walk into the Village of Boothbay Harbor. The cottage has a nice layout and is ideal for a couple. I would recommend this cottage to any nature lover or outdoorsman. There was wildlife everywhere in the harbor including osprey, seals, dolphin and shore birds. The fishing was good as well.

Quiet little getaway
August 18, 2009
Overlooking the Linekiln Bay, there is a beautiful view out each window as well as from the private porch. The cottage is small but very comfortable for 2 people. Boothbay Harbor is a ten minute walk from cottage across the footbridge. The location is great for enjoying the activities available at Bootbay and for taking day trips up and down the coast. There are other rooms available from the owners. Our stay was very pleasant and we would recommend this spot for anyone wishing to enjoy a quiet stay at the ocean.
