Heron's Nest is nestled amongst the Pines on a steep hillside overlooking the Damariscotta River. This serene and dramatic setting provides the perfect backdrop for your Boothbay vacation. Along with the incredible sights, you will also hear the sound of the surf crashing on the rocks below, and experience the ocean breezes while relaxing on the oversized deck. and

Our East Boothbay oceanfront cottages both exude Maine charm, and have been filled with furnishings and amenities that will provide you with a comfortable and functional sanctuary.

Cottage 1 features charming knotty pine walls and soaring ceilings. It has 1 bedroom and 1 bath and has been fully renovated and professionally decorated. The bedroom is gorgeous and has beautiful views right from the cozy queen bed. The kitchen is well equipped with stainless appliances including a full sized stove/oven, fridge and dishwasher. There is also a hi-def flat screen Smart TV that has cable, Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Cottage 2 is adorable and is also loaded with charm. It has 1 bedroom with a queen bed, and an open loft with a futon. There is a kitchen with an camp sized oven/stove, small fridge and microwave. There is a full bath with a tub and shower combo.

Both cottages feature fine "Cuddledown" linens. There is also wifi throughout and a washer and dryer.

Heron's Nest is professionally managed by Chill Vacation Rentals. All of our properties are exceptionally clean and provide guests with upscale amenities, and great linens. We strive to provide pictures and information that accurately reflect what the property provides so that you can be assured that your rental will meet or exceed your expectations. While you are here, we are nearby and very responsive to your needs.

*Important Accessibility Notes: The hillside location of the cottages makes for a unique and stunning setting, but does require a walk from the parking area of about 75 yards along a boardwalk and down stairs. The cottages would therefore be difficult to access for those with mobility issues. The cottages may not be suitable for families with young children as there is a steep unfenced drop-off to the ocean below

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Sweet serenity in style on the coast of Maine
Our Heron's Nest vacation was a wonderful experience! It is a very cozy and romantic place! My husband and I were in awe of the amazing beauty of the setting and of the charm of the cottage itself! From the deck and living room picture window, we saw osprey, sea birds, humming birds, beautiful sun rises and enjoyed star gazing as well.

The cottage was well appointed and had a casual elegance that made our stay extra special! It was somewhat more spacious than what we had imagined from the pictures. Everthing was very tastefully decorated and immaculate! Even the bathroom, with a very nice shower and sink with a vanity, had elegant decorative touches. The best part was that the caretakers of the property made us feel very welcome and let us know they were always on hand to help in anyway needed! Our time at Heron's Nest was magical and we would love to visit again in the future!

A Sanctuary by the Sea!
We had a fabulous stay recently at Heron's Nest! From the moment you step onto the grounds, the sounds of the waves crashing, the smell of pine and fir, the cool ocean breezes and the serenity envelops you. This is truly a place for respite and relaxation. Both cottages are like new, with upgraded linens and fixtures and superb craftsmanship in both cottages that easily accommodated our family of 5, with 3 beds and a comfy pull out sleeper sofa. Lots of extras were a bonus like beach towels, spices and oils, paper goods and cleaning supplies, things many rentals make you bring yourself. Maine soaps, jams and a lovely bottle of champagne were a lovely bonus. The steps are intimidating at first but are not high or steep like in a house, and we managed fine with our groceries and suitcases. No A/C was not an issue with it being a wooded property, with ceiling fans and ocean breezes that keep the cottages cool even on 80+ degree days. With fantastic views, and lots to do within 5-20 minutes of the property, it was easy to go out several times a day to dine, walk, kayak, or view lighthouses and go beachcombing at Ocean Point, Southport and Boothbay Harbor. Food shopping or take out was close too, with Hannaford, the East Boothbay general store and Pinkham's Seafood all close by to keep us supplied with meals or food to bring back and grill on the spacious deck with wonderful views. Th e owner and property managers are there if you need them and have created a wonderful vacation get away at Heron's Nest!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: So is the price for both cottages?
A: Yes, during Peak Season, the quoted price includes the use of both cottages.
Q: Can I rent just one cottage?
A: Yes, but only during off-peak seasons and only if there is no more than 2 guests. To keep prices down for couples, during off-peak, the quoted price is for the use of just 1 cottage for 2 guests. If you add more guests to your inquiry, the price will reflect use of 2 cottages.
Q: If I rent 1 cottage in the fall, will you rent out the other one?
A: No. We believe that the cottages are too close together to be rented by 2 separate parties. We value your privacy and believe this policy will help to ensure that you have a great vacation.
Q: Can you tell me a little bit more about the access?
A: The cottages were originally the guest cottages of a large estate. For privacy they were set in a wooded area a good distance from the main house. So there is a boardwalk that leads from the parking area about 75 yards to the cottages. It meanders along the hillside and is mostly flat with about 20 small stairs mixed in throughout.
Q: How far is it to restaurants?
A: The East Boothbay General Store which has great breakfast, lobster rolls, sandwiches and pizza is a local favorite and is about 2 miles away. There are also 3 full service restaurants, Lobsterman's Wharf, Ocean Point Inn and The Carriage House, within 3 miles of Heron's Nest. It is about 5 miles to downtown Boothbay Harbor and its 25 or so restaurants.
