We just returned from a two week stay at Boathouse Way Cottages. We've stayed here every year for 10+ years and absolutely love it (see our previous review for details). The cottages are cozy, super clean, beautifully maintained and perfectly outfitted for our family of four. In fact, we found ourselves eating breakfast and dinner at the cottage more frequently...

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Driftwood Cottage. We both loved the place and have zero complaints, but I have a potential warning... CAT ALLERGY WARNING: The owners' cats seemed to hang out outside the Driftwood Cottage (it is fairly close to the owners' house) and one cat would watch us from our front porch every day while we...

I booked Whalesback cottage only 2 days before we planned to arrive, but this was not a problem at all with the owners. The cottage was exceptionally clean & comfortable (complete with pillowtop mattresses that make it hard to... More

This is our 8th season at Boathouse Way Cottages. We've stayed twice in the Homeport and all other times in the Whalesback cottage. Both are beautifully outfitted with every thing you could need - and more. Missy and Keith anticipated everything - from beach towels, to beach coolers. Spaghetti pots to Lobster pots. It's all here. It's clear the Higgins... More

We found Boathouse Way Cottages on-line while looking into places to stay on Mount Desert Island, Maine. The main goal was to have a nice, quiet, comfortable, clean place to come "home" to after a day of sightseeing in the “Acadia National Park”. We hit the jack pot when we decided to stay here! The cottage was wonderful with all... More
