WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION?
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!

"Janet M. Wilson Memorial Chapel, East Boothbay
From the stone staircase of the Janet M. Wilson Memorial Chapel you can look out to the Atlantic and see Fisherman’s Island, Ram Island, and the Hypocrites in the distance. “It’s steps away from the water on Ocean Point,” says Reverend Connie Mills, “and the stonework and stained glass inside are gorgeous.” The chapel was built in 1917 and named after the wife of Lewis Wilson, the original builder."
