EDGE OF THE SEA
As the name implies this three bedroom cottage sits at the edge of the sea and provides spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, Ram Island Lighthouse, and islands. Enjoy swimming at Grimes Cove Beach, just a brief walk around the corner. This cottage is located at the desirable Ocean Point area of East Boothbay. The Ocean Point Colony Trust maintains a clubhouse and tennis courts (for a fee) where many enjoyable activities take place during the summer that you and your family could sign up for at the Casino during the time of your stay. It is also within walking distance to the Wilson Chapel, very popular for weddings, and the rocky shoreline that abuts Shore Hill Road, a favorite to all such as Plein air artists, photographers, locals grabbing a quick lunch or visitors enjoying a picnic. Enjoyed by couples, families, definitely a very popular location for all and where the land meets the sea.
Enter the cottage into a small hallway leading to the cottage kitchen on your right, the first-floor bedroom with a double bed and shower bathroom on the left or straight ahead into the expansive living/dining room with its wall of windows to the ocean. Lots of seating for dining, relaxing, or visiting. Enjoy a fire in the wonderful classic Maine Stone Fireplace, or toast some marshmallows for S'More's as an after dinner treat!
The Second Floor has two bedrooms (one double and one with twins) as well as a full bath. Enjoy water views from these bedrooms as well. Imagine the rising sun waking you as local lobster boats chug on by as they seek out their traps to empty the days catch. Visit one of the local lobster pounds to buy them later in the day. (Note: the stairs to the second floor are steep and may be a challenge for older people with mobility issues or very small children.)

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION?
Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who 'got it' to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to "connect" each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; "The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation."
