What Is #BookDirect?

Did you know that every time you book your stay with us via an online travel agent (OTA) they charge YOU and US up to 20% commission?  Now you may think “well it’s just one booking, what difference could that make?” You’re right, but over time and a season that figure adds up, and over the past few years millions of $$ and are being taken from our local businesses when they don’t need to be.

Did You Know That OTA "Best Rate" Claims Are False?

The dominant OTAs such as booking .com, Expedia, etc are smart because they heavily market on the fact that you get the BEST RATES and BEST INCENTIVES when you book via their website. When you book your next stay with us directly you will be supporting a small business and you will save money.

We can’t wait to help you experience the vacation of a lifetime...
consider us Your Vacation Connection.

Cottage Connection is one of Maine's most respected vacation rental companies. We partner with property owners that count on us to manage their rentals. Locally-owned and operated since 1993, we offer a variety of vacation homes, in all sizes: lakefront and oceanfront, from camps to castles, up and down the mid-coast of Maine ranging in price from $800 to $8,000 a week. Our pricing shows you all taxes and fees. There are no surprises. We strive to provide Comfort (in our homes), Quality (services and communication), Knowledge (of our area and homes), and Respect (for everyone).

We are pet-friendly and host over 300 pets a year. Most of our homes offer spectacular views, awesome sunrises or dramatic sunsets. They are convenient to area towns, yet quite private. All of our Maine vacation rental homes are privately owned, are non-smoking and include well-equipped kitchens. While amenities vary by property, they can include fireplaces (gas and wood), dock and float, WIFI, and deep water moorings.  

It is always best to rent a vacation home from a Professional Vacation Rental Company with a good reputation. We have been successfully matching special people to special Maine places for 30 years! We are that independent third party you can count on to give you accurate and timely information about the property you are considering.  We are longtime members of our local chambers of commerce and have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.  

Typically our cottages rent from Mid-June to Mid-October, with the last two weeks in July and the first three weeks in August being the most desired. Don't delay, contact us today and let us connect you to your special Maine place!

cottage connection of maine logo     Humane and Eco-Conscious

Connection owners, Jeff and Audrey Miller, feel a strong sense of compassion for our environment and wildlife. We have added the Arctic Tern to our logo to call attention to the shorebirds that are a vital part of our world. We want to start conversations and raise awareness of these endangered species and behave in sustainable, eco-friendly ways in all we do.

As you approach our office and Welcome Center at 675 Wiscasset Rd Suite A, Boothbay, Maine, you will notice a bird (Arctic Tern) next to our name on the building, which represents our commitment to raising awareness for endangered and vulnerable species of wildlife here in Maine. You can stop by and show your support for these shorebirds by purchasing one of our "Quinn the Arctic Tern" products. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands Wildlife Refuge Center in Rockland, Maine.
