Looking for the quiet, tranquil getaway spot?  Then Seaside Hideaway is for you.  Nestled among the trees, and at the edge of the water, you are invited to sit on the porch in one of the rockers and just relax and enjoy the view.  Love Kayaking, want to be able to enjoy it without having to go someplace else to launch your kayak?  Then Seaside Hideaway is your perfect Maine vacation rental.  With its own dock and float on tidal salt water, you can just launch your kayaks and paddle around nearby Barter's Island or around the corner to Oven's Mouth Preserve (one of the areas Land Trust Properties), or down the river to Indiantown Island to enjoy another beautiful preserve.  Many easy to challenging kayaking opportunities in our beautiful area of Maine.

Or sit on the open deck or covered porch to enjoy a meal, read a book, just relax>  Enjoy  the spectacular sunsets you will see here. Maine clean air makes the sky a nighttime jewel.  Enjoy star gazing as you sit on the deck.  Mayhap you will even see a shooting star or two.
A short drive will bring you to the Trevett Country Store famous for their crab  and lobster rolls.  Sit outside to enjoy any boating traffic or perhaps you will be lucky enough to catch the opening of the Barter's Island Bridge (one of the last of the hand crank bridges in the State) while you are enjoying your food.  The Mill Cove Lobster Pound is right there as well for you to buy your lobsters fresh and ready to take home to cook and enjoy.  A short drive will take you into Boothbay Harbor for shopping, restaurants, boat trips and shows at the Opera House.  

Like most salt-water tidal rivers, the aquatic life is bountiful around the Boothbay Region. You will enjoy bird-watching even if that is not your norm! Expect to see egrets, herons, loons, osprey, eagles and more. Also seals, porpoise and otters have been known to frequent the area! Wave the Lobstermen in from your dock and share in the local bounty! Did you say lobster for dinner? Of course, you can get out in the water yourself! Sailing, kayaking, rowing and more are easy to do from your dock.Several local vendors can help outfit you with the boats, guides, etc for a fantastic aquatic adventure leaving daily from your own dock!

Imagine waking up in the morning, getting your morning cup of coffee and sitting outside to enjoy watching the day begin. Enjoy watching Lobstermen pulling their traps, kayakers setting out for the day to explore, sounds of the water lapping against the shoreline to lull you to sleep or entice you to enjoy a swim.  The perfume of the day is the sun warmed salt water.  Seaside Hideaway gives you all of that and tranquility besides.  Located on a generous lot in the Tamarack Trail area of Boothbay, this two bedroom, two bathroom cottage sits at the edge of the water with its very own dock and float.  Nicely landscaped yard and beautiful water views.  Open the windows to enjoy the gentle breezes - we call it nature's air conditioning that cool the area off in the evening.  Surrounded by trees and shrubs, you feel like you are the only ones around.  Nicely appointed and just waiting for you. With two levels of living, it is ideal for two couples or multi-generational families. Upper level has your kitchen/dining,living, one bedroom and one full bath; Lower level has another living room, bedroom and full bath bath.  Both levels have an outside deck or porch. Just imagine waking up, glancing out the window and enjoying the water views!

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!

Be careful driving into the place as the driveway off of the road is very stiff and you need to go very slow to not bottom out on the driveway.
Favorite feature of the property was the ability to enjoy those sunsets. Enjoyed fishing, resting and touring the area.
