Guest of The Ledge will enjoy the little pebble beach, great for sunning or tide pool exploring at low tide. Swimming, kayaking and sailing are all doable from the beach. The large yard is great for badminton and croquet, Frisbees or kite flying. Southport Island is great for biking and walking. The Yacht club is a short drive away as is the championship golf course. Be sure to bring your binoculars as you will love all the scenery; light houses, birds, porpoise, seals and even whales have been seen from this part of Southport. Sail boat, yachts and the occasional tall ship pass by as well! The cottage is only a short drive to dining, shopping, boat trips, hiking trails, and more in and around the Boothbay Harbor Region. You'll be less than a mile from the Newagen Inn and just a couple of miles across the Island from the Southport General Store.

Southport Island is a hidden treasure on the Boothbay Peninsula. Two miles from Boothbay Harbor, you cross the bridge onto the island and feel the world change around you. Rent kayaks locally or bring your own and launch them from right the property. Nearby you will find hiking trails, biking, the Southport Historical Society Museum and Southport Beach with views of Hendrick’s Head Lighthouse. Visit the Southport Memorial Library to check out the famous Ruby Slippers and learn about their connection to the area. While you are there, borrow a Rachel Carson book and explore some of her favorite spots on the island. Farmers markets and food stands are THE spot to buy fresh and local. Don't forget the seafood! Lobster abounds in this area and can be purchased at the many lobster pounds on the island, including Robinson's Wharf and Oliver's Restaurant. The Southport General Store is known for its breakfast pizza and sandwiches and extensive wine collection and gift barn. The Boothbay Peninsula is a beautiful region rich in culture, history, all things nautical and of course it’s 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. Needless to say you'll want to come back again and again!. Pets Allow.... A 4-NIGHT MINIMUM IS REQUIRED FOR NON-PEAK SEASON RENTALS. We require at least 72 hours’ notice of intent to rent so the cottage can be prepared for your stay.
