including utilities. (Winter utilities at Seanook can run anywhere between $350 and $1100 per month depending on how you manage them. Firewood is the least expensive heat and we will source that.  We have some couples who have spent $0 for utilities in May!) The REFUNDABLE deposit to secure against your utilities for these longer-term rentals varies according to the length and season of your stay.  We will coordinate with you before you leave to be sure all accounts are settled.  This is based on two to four person occupancy with occasional guests possible up to six people total. Children count as people! No pets for monthly rentals.

 
Snug and toasty by the fire and surrounded by water on three sides, you can watch storms sweep across the bay, varying ice formations float back and forth, sea-smoke if the temperatures are just right, many varieties of ducks flying, floating, and diving, seagulls riding the updrafts, and an occasional eagle. We also have deer, foxes, and turkeys.  In Boothbay Harbor, just three miles away, one of the best restaurants is open every day and there is plenty of parking; the pace is a little slower and the attention a little warmer.

Possible Fees

Linen service:  Many people bring their own linens, or you may use our linen service for $50 per stay ($25 for just two people).  This includes sheets, towels and kitchen linens for the whole house and all your guests for your entire time.  You are welcome to use as many of our pillows and blankets, provided in the many chests and drawers around, to make the beds to suit your own desires, whether or not you bring your own linens. You will find bed sizes under the room descriptions in the “Amenities” section on the drop-down menu at the top of each page.

 
 

Pet Fee:  A per visit charge of $250 for each pet.  $100 toward each pet is partially or wholly refundable depending on possible damage and how much time we must spend cleaning on your departure specifically after the animal(s) including grounds clean-up.  If we have to do the latter, you will not get your $100 back!  No cats.

State tax:  We are required to collect 9% lodging tax for the state, starting January 1, 2016. We will figure the correct amount and itemize it on your contract.
Cleaning fee for One night stay.  If you want to deviate from our two night minimum and stay just one night, there will be an extra $50 cleaning fee. 

Credit Cards:  All rates shown are our lowest prices for payment only by cash, or check.  To pay by any other method, please inquire for our regular season rates and let us know what method you prefer to use.  We try to keep our rates reasonable.  That is why we list only on sites which allow us to have direct contact with our guests and no longer list on HomeAway or Trip Advisor, as their guest fees are so exorbitant.  If you find us on Booking.com or other spurious sites, those are pirated listings.

 
 
Reservation or Booking Fee:  One-half the total rent or $1000 whichever is less is payable in advance as a deposit to hold your time; the remainder is due on arrival.  
Our Cancellation Policy is as follows: if you are unable to keep your reservation, you must notify us at least 30 days in advance of your arrival date and we must succeed in re-renting your entire stay; then you may reschedule for another available time, or we will refund your deposit less a $100 per reserved week re-booking fee.  Should we be unable to find someone else to take your reserved time, or if the cancellation is within 30 days of your arrival, you will forfeit your deposit.

(If you don’t get a response from the latter, please try a different method in case it is not working.)
