Paradise Cottage in Summer

Paradise Cottage in Summer

Paradise Cottage, on Paradise Point Road in East Boothbay, has 4 weeks open (July 20 – Aug 16) at the height of summer! Contemplate relaxing water views, nestle into the woods and gardens from the sitting/dining area on the porch, or borrow our kayaks to paddle at the head of Linekin Bay. Quiet and sequestered, yet only 3 miles from Boothbay Harbor. Floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in, or enjoy private outside living. Spring is also an exciting time to visit Mary Ellen’s gardens. The month of April 10 – May 24, 2019 is available at Paradise Cottage for $1400/month. Or two people can come for 3 nights in April ($410), or a week in May ($990). It is such fun to watch little things poke through the ground and then expand. All the while birds are announcing their joyous return as they migrate back, and leaves are emerging from seemingly lifeless branches. Open your window at night for fresh salt air and wake up to bird twittering and the soothing swishing of little waves at high tide. Go for a hike in a Boothbay Region Land Trust preserve, get out on the ocean with a boat excursion, take in any sort of show at the Opera House of Boothbay Harbor, or dine on gourmet seafood at one of our fabulous area restaurants. Spend a day at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, or on Monhegan Island. We personally do all our own booking! Call for more information!Call...

Why stay with us?

Seanook from the air on a Fall morning by Jack Keegan Come to relax in the calming environment, or visit and participate in the activities of bustling Boothbay Harbor just three miles away. Our location at the head of Linekin Bay offers you the best of both worlds.  Sequestered at the edge of woods and water, you can enjoy rest from your normal everyday sounds and sights while taking in the view of sparkling water and nature teaming around you, yet be close to gourmet restaurants, the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library, State of Maine Aquarium, events at the Opera House, boat excursions, and varied shops.   Hiking abounds in the area on Boothbay Region Land Trust trails, or follow our directions to treck from here to Boothbay Harbor over the water and through the woods.  Borrow one or more of our kayaks or a rowboat to paddle on the bay. Fish off our dock (Seanook only) or swim in our warmer-than normal cove waters, beach comb, or just sit and enjoy the changes of tide, wind and weather occurring around you.   Mary Ellen’s gardens offer more opportunities for relaxation and contemplation with multiple seating choices sprinkled throughout.  Or come visit Paradise Studio to view her landscapes and seascapes in oil. Both our cottages have full kitchens, two baths with showers, floor to ceiling windows, washer and dryer, and expansive decks for outside living. Breath easy; everything you need is...
