The perfect romantic retreat, Sunrise will make you fall in love all over again! Incredible breath stealing views of the tidal river near the Ovens’ Mouth Preserve is just full of aquatic wildlife like seals, sturgeon, osprey and eagles. This property is on a point of land offering water views on three sides as the river curves around the property. The house follows the same curve and was built to blend with the beautiful woodsy environment.

Ovens Mouth and Ovens Mouth Preserve are famous in this part of the world, especially to the boating community. Known for the reversing falls, the convergence of Back and Cross rivers as they head for the Sheepscot River and the the Atlantic Ocean, this area is home to eagles and heron.

In 1994 the Boothbay Region Land Trust purchased 146 acres on Ovens Mouth, including both the eastern and middle peninsulas. Walking trails and spectacular kayaking are thoroughly enjoyed by locals and visitors from far and wide. With a rich history and incredible natural beauty this area is now protected for all to enjoy. The narrow passages and rich tidal basins, rocky cliffs and tree lined hillsides all make beautiful scenery and photographic opportunities on misty days as well as bright sunny ones! Large sailing yachts and single-man lobster boats, day-sailers and canoers share these waters and add to the views. Explore this amazing location on the Boothbay peninsula by land or by sea and you will want to come back year after year!

The house is just beautiful, built in 1999 as a two-story family home. The owners have carved out a gorgeous condo on the ground floor, keeping the top floor for themselves, though they rarely have the opportunity to visit.

The condo has its own private entrance and curves along the water side of the house, each room has water views and doors leading to the flagstone patio and manicured, colorful gardens.

French doors lead from the bedroom into the open, airy living room. The condo is tiled throughout, helping to keep it nice and cool in the summer. Like the rest of the condo, the kitchen and dining are open, spacious and offer those unbelievable views. Gorgeous wood accents, simple and elegant décor and amazing views from the many windows are the hallmarks of this luscious condo.

The landscaped gardens and paths meander down the hill to the home’s private dock and float (shared with the owners when they are in-house) with deep water moorings available. Guests can bring their own boat (or rent locally) so ask your reservationist for details. If you like to kayak or canoe, day sail or rowboat, you will absolutely LOVE this spot!

The master bedroom suite includes queen bed and a gorgeous wood burning brick fireplace. French doors lead out to the garden and flagstone patio.

The newly renovated full bathroom has a shower/tub combination.

Be sure to let us help you create the perfect vacation! We love this sweet little cottage and have all kinds of ideas and information on how you can enjoy your vacation at Sunset Cottage. Reach out to us for help in planning your trip!

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 manager 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 its own unique niche in nature. The area offers ample opportunities for biking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, charters and guided cruises, spas, golf, mini-golf, bowling, museums, antiquing, hiking and walking trails. We have the Maine State Aquarium, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and the Boothbay Region Land Trust with its 30+ miles of pet friendly trails in protected areas.

Found Cottage Connection by a recommendation from Maine Vacation Rentals.
The best part of our rental experience was walking into Sunrise and seeing how well appointed it was and the view of Oven's Mouth. We will definitely recommend Sunrise and Cottage Connections to our family and friends. The biggest surprise of our stay was how beautiful the location Sunrise is in and its close proximity to town. Very private, peaceful and enjoyable for us.

Why did you choose Cottage Connection? Past guest and positive rental experience. What was the best part of your rental experience? Knowing that the people at Cottage Connection stood behind their policies and works very hard to ensure that your vacation property is to your standards, if not better. If you were to recommend us to friends and family, what would you say? The staff is very knowledgeable and professional, yet very friendly.
What was the biggest surprise about your stay? How nice Sunrise was, how quiet and private. Good launching point for days trips (location).

Saw the property on Flip Key and was curious. Made an inquiry to Cottage Connection through FlipKey and began to plan our honeymoon at Sunrise. Have already recommended Cottage Connection to family and friends.
The best part of our rental experience was Sunrise's peaceful setting and quiet. We were on our honeymoon and this was the perfect spot. We were pleasantly surprised with the lovely furnishings and design of the property. Was told that we were Sunrise's second couple to use it as a Honeymoon spot this year. We could see why, it truly was very private, peaceful and cozy!

We came to the United States and to Maine for our honeymoon. We went to the local Chamber of Commerce in Boothbay Harbor who directed us to Cottage Connection of Maine. Cottage Connection staffers found the perfect location for my husband and I to honeymoon and worked with us to make our stay possible. The staff of Cottage Connection are very professional and good at what they do, but they also made us feel like we had been friends for years. They saw to our every need.
Our biggest surprise was how much everyone went above and beyond to make our honeymoon/stay special. Sunrise was comfortable as well as very romantic, especially with its working fireplaces. Very private and quiet.
