Portside is a year-round luxury condo with the charm of a cottage in the heart of historic Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The cottage is in the town center and yet you will find tranquility and privacy inside. We share a dock and float with the other two Back Bay Cottage units and have our own deck on the water’s edge. With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, Portside can sleep up to six people. The Portside unit is on the ground floor of the 3-unit Back Bay Cottage, built in 2006. Amenities include a state-of-the-art kitchen and appliances, an outdoor gas grill, flat-screen TVs and DVD players, high-speed internet/wifi and free private parking.

My family recently spent the week in the Portside condo and had such a fabulous time. The condo is beautifully furnished and maintained and right on the water. It is within steps of all of the restaurants and shops in Boothbay. We were there for a wedding and were able to see some of the other B&B's in town where... more

This lovely waterfront condo was cozy, comfortable, beautifully furnished, and very well equipped. It was so convenient to the shops and restaurants in the Boothbay Harbor area. A notebook prepared by the owner was extremely helpful in planning activities in the area and recommending restaurants to try. It made the perfect home base for exploring the coastal area of Maine. more
