Listen to the gulls keen. Watch the Cormorants and osprey dive. Smell the salty tang in the air. Feel the pounding of the surf come up through the ledge on which you stand taking it all. Imagine the taste of the yummy lobster dinner planned for tonight!

The Ledge will excite your senses as it melts away your stress. This is the Ocean. This is Maine. This is Summer. This is The Ledge. And this could be your vacation spot. The one you will come back to year after year! The one you will speak wistfully of throughout the winter, counting the days till you can come back again!

The cute little pebble beach is great for sunning or tide pool exploring at low tide. Swimming, kayaking and sailing are wonderful from the beach. The large yard is great for badminton and croquet, Frisbees or kite flying. Southport Island is great for biking and walking. Many of the locals like to get around on moped. The Yacht club is a short drive as is the championship golf course. Be sure to bring your binoculars as you will love all the scenery; light houses, birds, porpoise, seals and even whales have been seen from this part of Southport. Sail boat, yachts and the occasional tall ship pass by as well!

You are a short drive to dining, shopping, boat trips, hiking trails, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Less than a mile to Newagen Inn for dinner or just a couple of miles across the Island to the Southport General Store for their great pizza and pastries as well as sandwiches and sundries. Boothbay Harbor is about 8 miles and offers whale watching, boat tours or you take in a show at the Opera House or Boothbay Play House. Artist’s galleries, boutiques, restaurants and even a hand-made saltwater taffy factory are fun options.

This charming summer cottage is as good as it gets! The sitting area with the big bay windows and waterside deck afford views of Cuckholds Lighthouse, boat activity and birds. Both of the open decks have deck furniture. The large manicured yard will become another hangout to your family. The cottage boasts a gourmet kitchen with custom cabinets and is artfully decorated throughout with big windows to bring in all those 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!

The Boothbay Peninsula is a beautiful region rich in culture, history, all things nautical and of course it’s own unique niche in nature.

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.

Southport Island is a hidden treasure on the Boothbay Peninsula. Eight miles for Boothbay Harbor, you cross the bridge onto the island and feel the world change around you. You know you are on vacation. Small sandy beaches, large expanses of rocky shoreline, views of Islands and open ocean, walking, kayaking, fishing and more! This quaint and historical part of Maine is treasured by the few who know of it! From the shore you can see Cape Island owned by Margaret Hamilton who played the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz. A pair f Ruby Red Slippers are on display at the Islands library. Hendricks Head Lighthouse and Beach are just a short ride away for those who prefer swimming on more of a sandy beach. Rachel Carson frequented Southport often and mentions the area in her books. Cuckhold Lighthouse can be seen just off shore. This small little spit of land is rich in history, marine life, unique ecology and more. You will come back again and again!
