Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore, when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make your vacation perfect!

The Boothbay Peninsula is a beautiful region rich in culture, history, all things nautical and of course it’s own unique niche in nature. The area offers ample opportunities for biking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, charters and guided cruises, spas, a championship golf course and country club, mini-golf, bowling, museums, antiquing, hiking and walking trails.

I believe the team at Cottage Connection love the homes as much as those of us who rent them. The care they give the homes and the way they welcome us when we arrive is a testament to that love. May they pass this love on to the generations that follow them.
Some places are meant to be visited and then left behind. Our cottage and little part of East Boothbay were meant to travel with us the rest of the year and the rest of our lives. We feel at home in Dash Inn. The setting is heavenly with a Bald Eagle thrown in for icing on the cake. The owners obviously love the place because you can feel that when you walk in the door. It is close to everything, yet far enough away from the world. Always go to the Maine State Theatre at Bowdoin for one show. Always visit Sadie's in Boothbay and NEVER skip going to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Walk, walk, walk. Don't tell anyone how great the YMCA pool is because we do not need crowds!

Nice people at Cottage Connection. Very Helpful.
This house looked great on the vacation site and had air conditioning, though we didn't use it. This is a great home and location. It was very clean and everything you could imagine was provided for your stay.

An email received from a guest at Dash Inn upon their departure "A quick note of Thanks to you all at Cottage Connection. Our stay at the Dash Inn was amazing!" "I have told all of my Facebook friends that they should consider Cottage Connection for their next trip to Maine and I do hope that they will do that." "Thank you, very much, for all that you and your staff did to make this vacation a very special one for mom, it was a very special one for her."
"A visit to Maine was on my 83-year old mother-in-law's "bucket list" and the Dash Inn was perfect for all of our daily outings. The house was more that that - it was a home for us during our stay there. Mom was content on the first floor with her own bedroom and bath. At 83 was chilled at night and the gas fireplace was just perfect for taking the chill off while planning our next day's adventure. We enjoyed Maine from Portland to Bayside/Northport and she saw everything she wanted. We left behind our tour book on Acadia. We knew it was too far for her to travel. We hope another guest will be able to use it. Please extend our thanks to Bob and Maria Luisa Dash from us. My mother-in-law loved their home; its furnishings and the lovely gardens. It was a very special vacation for her with Bob and Maria Luisa making her dream come true through their lovely home. We don't know how many more vacations we will have but she continued to talk about the lovely home in East Boothbay all the way home to Kingsland, Texas. "

I would definitely recommend Cottage Connection to all my family. I have family in CA, FL, MO, TX, OH, NH, KA, and here in Maine.
"My brother and his step daughters drove 1800 miles to get here. The girls had never been to Maine and oh what a special treat for all of us. With all the amenities, the state of the art kitchen, the great jetted tub, the large entertainment room downstairs it wasn't hard to entertain family who came to visit, make it easy and enjoy ourselves. Loved It!
