Linekin Bay on two sides through the expansive windows or from the private sitting area at the west end of the deck.  Cozy and inviting, it can be your week of retreat.  Relax and breath in the fresh, clean, and invigorating salty sea breeze!  Guests at Paradise Cottage have the use of our beach on the cove shared only by our three properties where the water warms in summer as it comes in over the sun-drenched pebbles making it the best spot on the bay for swimming.

Inside hall Paradise Cottage

Inside hall Paradise Cottage; 4 large windows look up onto the woods.

 It is also a good place from which to store and launch your kayaks, or you are welcome to borrow ours after signing our release. Rest, relax, read, and absorb the beautiful natural surroundings, or go to Boothbay Harbor, just three miles away for gourmet restaurants, a boat cruise, shops, art galleries, and more.

Although there are four steps minimum to get into Paradise Cottage, the house is laid out all on one level with a wide hall along the back connecting all the rooms and also offering expansive views up the slope into the woods behind. The “great room” also includes a wood stove, the dining area, and a small, but complete kitchen.  Each room has a door to the deck which borders the house on two sides, expanding the living space of the already large rooms and blending them into the gardens.  The cottage is fully carpeted with floor to ceiling windows that bring the outside in.  Two baths make your stay more comfortable.

To find Paradise Cottage on the map below you can actually zoom in on the Earth or Satellite view and locate the “dog-leg” dock at Seanook, then our three buildings appear in a straight line from west to east.  Seanook is the first one by the dock, then Paradise Cottage, and lastly Paradise Studio.

In 1952 my father built the main room of Paradise Cottage across the road from Seanook for my grandmother.  She had the bedroom added, but you walked through the bathroom to get to it.  When I acquired the properties in 1997, I renovated and winterized both places, also adding the wide and windowed back hall and end bedroom to Paradise Cottage.
