Ideal for small families or couples.
______________________

A classic summer cottage in the perfect setting for a memorable Maine vacation. Rocky coastline, open ocean, and small private beach are just a few of the natural wonders of Barnacles. The cottage features Hand-Hewn beams and wide boards, original to the structure circa 1790. It was moved to its present location in the 1960's by barge. Located on Southport Island, a short drive from Boothbay Harbor, Barnacles offers spectacular views of lower Mark Island from the picture windows and open deck. Easy access to the ocean encourages you to explore the tidal pools or kayak the coastline. When you come to this little cottage, you will love the solitude and sounds of the ocean. After enjoying the incredible sunsets, get cozy by the wood burning fireplace or marvel at the star-studded night skies.
_______________________________

THE HOUSE: Barnacles offers all the charm and grace of a true Maine cottage. Enter through the homey kitchen on the main floor with its wide picture window facing the ocean. The half bath is located off the kitchen. To the left is the living room with working fireplace and more large windows showcasing the bold water view. The back hallway provides the door to the large open deck and steps to the path leading to the sandy beach. Off the living room is the bedroom with one Queen bed and en-suite shower bathroom. The loft (accessed by steep stairs in the hall) contains two twin beds and has two dormer windows for those hot summer days

All dealings were pleasant and professional, paperwork was easily done via email. Staff was courteous and helpful, sent a maintenance person quickly when a smoke detector malfunctioned.

This was our first time renting a vacation home through a private company. We usually look for a housekeeping cabin or cottage in various State Parks when we travel, but Maine parks don't offer such accommodations. Our experience with Cottage Connections couldn't have been better! Thanks for making our anniversary vacation a great one.

We really enjoyed the area - the wonderful town and our own private beach. Boothbay and Southport is a great place to visit. We were really surprised with all the wonderful activities one could do in the area.
