CAPTAIN’S QUARTERS ON LINEKIN BAY
Sailing, swimming, kayaking, fishing, boating –right from your own dock & float. Captain’s Quarters is for anyone who loves the ocean! Located on the east side of Linekin Bay, just across from Cabbage Island, this comfortable three-story home in East Boothbay is the real deal. This house was featured in the made for PBS television series, Getting Away Together. We have a link to it here on this page or go to http://www.gettingawaytogether.com/destination/booth-bay-harbor
This home was built in the late 1800s as an Inn for the Eastern Steamship company. It features a spectacular wrap-around porch on three sides with beautiful sunset views over Linekin Bay and Cabbage Island. People also love to gather in the kitchen which has an island in the middle and several bar stools for eating or just "gathering together" to cook and talk and enjoy time with each other.
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
This is the perfect home-base for sailors, boaters, fishermen, photographers, walking and nature enthusiasts. An excellent area for fishing; blue fish, mackerel, stripers and sea bass have all been caught in Linekin Bay. Enjoy day sailing in and around the Boothbay peninsula as part of our famous rocky coast line. Explore Linekin Bay with the two tandem kayaks that are provided by the owners for a couple hours or for entire days! Walk from the house to the Burley Loop. This land was donated to the Boothbay Region Land Trust by the neighbors. It is a lovely and gentle trail. We are so lucky to have the East Boothbay General Store a mile away for morning coffee and great food. We especially enjoy the Blueberry Gorgonzola Pizza they offer. Delicious! Lobstermans' Wharf is a great place to sit and eat out on the deck and watch the boat traffic and the boat builders next door. But the very best thing about Captain’s Quarters is being with friends and family to eat great food, especially lobster, relax, have fun and reconnect. This is summer in Maine at it's finest!
THE DOCK & FLOAT
Extending out into Linekin Bay, the low tide depth of the float is 10’. Bring your kayaks and boats. Adirondack chairs on the dock are perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails or just to enjoy the cool afternoon breezes. Be sure to bring your camera! Captain's Quarters looks directly out at Seal Rocks which at low tide is covered by sun-bathing seals. Osprey, eagles, loons, herons, cormorants, and seals are just some of the animals that frequent this diverse natural habitat. Swim, sunbathe or fish from the float. Two deep water moorings are also available, ask for details. Bring your own boat, or rent one. Boating in Maine requires that you read charts and be aware of the tide changes. In Maine, we have 9 foot tides. If you happen to be down at the dock and a lobsterman comes by to pull his traps, wave him in and you may be able to buy lobster right from the boat.
The grounds cascade in tiers from above the house down to the water. Small vignettes of flowers, flowering bushes and seating arrangements create beautiful gathering spots as well as private reading areas. Humming birds, butterflies and dragonflies are here throughout the entire season, as are many nesting birds. A gas BBQ and cook-out area with picnic tables are great for outdoor grilling and provide the perfect venue for an old fashioned lobster bake. Croquet, horseshoes and badminton games are available. There is a swing set for small children!
An enclosed porch wraps around three sides of the house with glass and screen windows letting in sunshine, sea breezes and amazing views! White wicker furniture with nautical-inspired cushions lead from one seating arrangement to the next. Dining tables, a foosball and Ping-Pong table along with games, puzzles, a reading library and DVD’s will provide hours of endless entertainment. In the evening, warm lighting and salty air lend a festive ambiance for music, games, storytelling and gathering together..
Overlooking Cabbage Island and Linekin Bay, Captain's Quarters is rich in history and began life as an Inn in service to the steamships traveling the coast of Maine and later became a Sea Captain`s home. Come see how the current Captain and his family have brought this gracious lady into a modern world without destroying the charm and character of the house.

Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine.
