“Unbelievable location and cozy home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I stayed at Back Bay Cottage in April with another friend when we were visiting Maine to get away for the weekend - and let me just say that the cottage is pitch perfect. The beds were extremely comfortable, the owner had multiple blankets and pillows on hand in the closets if we grew chilly, and plush towels and bathrobes (!) - it was like a luxury hotel experience, but in someone's home. The kitchen is fantastic with a farmhouse sink, marble countertops and every appliance known to mankind (including espresso machine!). The owner thoughtfully provided a manual of all local sights to see, suggestions for rainy days, and details to the house (EVERYONE who rents their home should do this) that explained how the TV, cable, wifi, lights, etc, all worked.

And the view! Right on the water - and it was lovely watching the dock slowly rise as the tide came in - and vice versa. Located right in the town of Boothbay Harbor, the village itself a gem, this is a fantastic place to stay and just get away from it all.

Five stars!
