Description from manager

Step back in time on this secluded piece of land, water, and sky. Take a nap in the bottom of a canoe as the gentle water rocks you. Spin on the hand-hewn wooden tree swing like you did when you were a kid, and explore the mud flats at low tide. Maybe you will even find some clams! With three-and-a-half acres of land (most along the rocky coast), there is so much to see, do and experience on this unique and magical property.


THE HOUSE: While many modern conveniences have been added, the cozy, homey atmosphere of this cottage remain much the same as when it was built in 1832. Nestled beneath indigenous trees, the warm and inviting ambiance reflects the waterfront area, and the large, well-kept lawns are great places for both playing and relaxing. The First Floor includes the kitchen, butler pantry, dining room and family room, as well as a ¾ Bathroom with a soaking tub, and one bedroom with one Double Bed. Period pieces and antiques abound in every room. The Second Floor has one bedroom with Two Twin Beds as well as a King Bed, one bedroom with two Twin Beds, and the fourth bedroom has One Queen Bed. A ¾ bathroom with shower completes the second floor of this Sawyer's Island gem.


NOTE: This house was built in the 1830's when staircases were steep and narrow and there was no such thing as indoor plumbing. Fortunately, the outhouse was replaced with indoor plumbing, but the staircase is original. Please let us know if mobility is an issue for anyone in your party so we can make sure we connect you with the right cottage for your perfect Maine vacation.

At Captain Kent's, guests will experience camp the way summer folk in this area have been for generations. The large, expansive yard dips right down to a tidal inlet (the property is on a spit of land with salt water on three sides). Nicely protected, the inlet provides a bounty of wildlife. You can kayak, sail, swim, bird watch, canoe, fish or simply float all in this idyllic and secluded setting. The mudflats warm up during low tide, making swimming warmer than usual when the tide comes back in. The private dock and float at Captain Kent's are the perfect spot to launch boats, enjoy cocktails, watch the moon rise or simply let the lazy days slip by.


The Boothbay Peninsula is a beautiful region rich in culture, history, all things nautical and of course its own unique niche in nature. The area offers ample opportunities for biking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, charters and guided cruises, spas, golf, mini-golf, bowling, museums, antiquing, hiking and walking trails. We have the Maine State Aquarium, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and the Boothbay Region Land Trust with its 30+ miles of pet-friendly trails in protected areas. 


Sawyers’ Island is approximately 175 acres and is connected to Hodgdon’s Island and to the Boothbay mainland by bridges. It floats comfortably in the Sheepscot River enjoying views of Barter’s Island, Porter Island and Indiantown Island. Stunning views, quiet, protected inlets and peaceful island attitudes are the signature finds of Sawyer’s Island. Though equipped with cell and satellite service, many visitors and inhabitants alike enjoy the slower pace and the ‘step-back-in-time’ feel that washes over you as you cross the hand-crank bridge. Ferry service to the Isle of Springs is available from the town landing. A canoe or kayak can get you to Indiantown Island and the Boothbay Region Land Trust preserve there. The land trust has scavenger hunts that are fun for all ages. Be sure to stop by the Trevett Country Store for some of the best lobster rolls in the Mid-coast on your way to explore Porter Island. And of course, no trip to this side of Boothbay would be complete without exploring the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens on Barter’s Island.
