About the area

Paradise Cottage is located on Linekin Bay in East Boothbay 3 miles east of Boothbay Harbor by car or on foot via a walk through the woods (Boothbay Region Land Trust Trail). Thus we have the best of both worlds; private and secluded, yet close to all the activities associated with a working waterfront. Enjoy the views and calm seclusion of our gardens or partake of other activities. We suggest the boat ride to Burnt Island where guides in character demonstrate the life of a Lighthouse Keeper's family in 1952. Children will also love the Aquarium where they will learn what critters to hunt for when they come back to explore our beach and in the shallow water. Don't miss our renowned Maine Botanical Gardens or the Railway Village with its antique cars. You can play golf at the Boothbay Country Club. Shops, art studios, gourmet restaurants, live theater, hiking, whale watching, antiquing and afternoon tea are just a few of the options nearby when you stay at Paradise Cottage. There are many gourmet eateries in Boothbay. Chefs specialize in original offerings, many of them making use of the local seafood. This is a food place!

“Paradise Cottage”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2016

This is a great rental. The house is well set up for great views and convenience. It has amenities that you never even knew you needed on vacation. The area is quite, close to shopping, touring and restaurants. We had a great stay and Mary Ellen and Ron are great to work with.

Owner's reply: Our sequestered location is both quiet and 3 miles from groceries, boat excursions, and gourmet dining. Don't forget our renowned Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Railway Village with antique cars, and lots of artists who take inspiration from the rugged and verdant scenery. There is plenty to explore, or you can enjoy the cool sea breeze with a book on the shaded deck or a bench in one of our gardens in summer or from the shelter of our floor to ceiling windows by the wood stove in winter.
