Description

THIS PROPERTY RENTS SATURDAYS-SATURDAYS JUNE - SEPTEMBER. 7-NIGHT MINIMUM REQUIRED.

A treasured family home at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean is ready for you to settle in for a memorable Maine Vacation. This pet-friendly, two bedroom, one and a half bath cottage is well equipped and comfortably furnished throughout. Savor the solitude and sounds of the ocean without being too far from town. Ideal for small families or couples.

A classic Maine summer cottage in the perfect setting for a memorable Maine vacation. Rocky coastline, open ocean, and small private beach are just a few of the natural wonders at Barnacles. The cottage features Hand-Hewn beams and wide boards, original to the structure circa 1790. It was moved to its present location in the 1960's by barge. Located on Southport Island, a short drive from Boothbay Harbor, Barnacles offers spectacular views of lower Mark Island from the picture windows and open deck. Easy access to the ocean encourages you to explore the tidal pools or kayak the coastline. When you come to this little cottage, you will love the solitude and sounds of the ocean. After enjoying the incredible sunsets, get cozy by the wood burning fireplace or marvel at the star studded night skies.

THE HOUSE: Barnacles offers all the charm and grace of a true Maine cottage. Enter through the homey kitchen with its wide picture window facing the ocean. The half bath is located off the kitchen. To the left is the living room with working fireplace and more large windows showcasing the bold water view. The back hallway provides the door to the large open deck and steps to the path leading to the sandy beach. Off the living room is the bedroom with two twin beds and en suite shower bathroom. The loft (accessed by stairs in the back hall) overlooks the living room and has one Queen bed.

PETS PERMITTED? Yes, pets are allowed.
LINENS & TOWELS INCLUDED? No, linens and towels are not provided for your stay, however they can be rented through us for $45 per bedroom, or you may bring your own.

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!

All dealings were pleasant and professional, paperwork was easily done via email. Staff was courteous and helpful, sent a maintenance person quickly when a smoke detector malfunctioned.

This was our first time renting a vacation home through a private company. We usually look for a housekeeping cabin or cottage in various State Parks when we travel, but Maine parks don't offer such accommodations. Our experience with Cottage Connections couldn't have been better! Thanks for making our anniversary vacation a great one.
