The rustic cabin is set far back from the road, with beautiful water views, and feels quite private. It is so close to Boothbay Harbor and the surrounding peninsulas and islands that it is the perfect launching point to explore the entire midcoast area. While we rarely saw the hosts, they were very welcoming & we felt as though we had the place to ourselves. We would definitely come back for another stay.
We had such a good time last year that we returned, and found the cabin as wonderful as last time!
The cabin was everything we had hoped it would be. It was very private and sheltered from the main house by trees and a fair distance. The view from the main level bed was awesome to wake up to every morning! We LOVED the tub and were very relieved to find the hot water plentiful. There were a few days during our stay that were a bit chilly and the heaters provided more then enough heat to keep us warm and snug. Ian was very polite and understanding when our older dog was being a bit of an annoyance towards his own dog (it was very embarrassing). He understood completely though and made us feel at ease the whole time. The area is dead quite and you can hear no traffic or people sounds at all. The drive to the main town of Boothbay is literally 5 min. We would highly recommend staying here and hope we can return someday.
Ian is the most responsive host i have dealt with. such a pleasure. such a nice guy. the cabin is so sweet. the views are so serene and calming. and the bathtub and fluffy towels were great (even though i am not a bath person, i loved taking a bath with a view)
definitely do a day hike to monhegan. spectacular. check out all the local preserves that abut the water. they are each beautiful in their own way.
Our family enjoyed staying in the McConnell's home in Maine! They were so accommodating with everything in their home, the recommendations in the notebook was extremely helpful. Using this lovely home, on the water, with it's picturesque location was " icing on the cake " with regards to our trip to New England! Very peaceful and relaxing for everyone!
The cabin was adorable! A great location surrounded by woods and fronting the water. It was a quiet relaxing place to vacation. You can stay at the cabin and do nothing at all, or it was also within close driving distance of things you would want to see and do around Boothbay Harbor. I would highly recommend. And I would not hesitate to book another trip here!! Actually, I just left and want to go back right now.
Our stay was perfect. Very nice location and extraordinary value for money ratio combined with very uncomplicated and forthcoming handling in advance.
Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, and we were greeted daily by their sweet dog, wagging his tail.
Ian sent a wonderful and complete overview of the cabin that made sure we were well taken care of for our stay. His charming little house in the woods was a true delight with large windows to enjoy watching the changing tide.
The house definitely lived up to the billing and the surrounding area is beautiful, with great water access. Certainly felt like all our needs were quickly taken care of by our gracious hosts, and with 4 adults and one toddler, we felt we had plenty of room in the house. Lots of privacy and very quiet nights. We would definitely consider renting the house again on our next trip to the Boothbay region.
The five days and nights we spent on the McConnell property were wonderful. We were able to walk in and feel like we were in our own home, only with a view of tidal Back River which afforded us a plethora of beauty and wild life with the coming and going of the tides. So much nicer than a hotel/motel or even a timeshare. We spent our days and evenings whenever possible on the deck and playing in the large yard.
The McConnell's were accommodating in every way, even providing a high chair and child gate for our grandchildren.
Just as the posting states, "peaceful and charming" !
Great guests. Would love to host anytime
We had the pleasure of hosting Laura and her friends for a girls weekend in the city. They were all very friendly and left the house in immaculate condition. I am sure she also makes a wonderful host!
Ian and family were great guests, the house was left in tip top condition, clean and tidy, and all check out instructions were followed perfectly. Highly recommended as AirBnB guests! Thanks Ian!
Ian and his family stayed here for the weekend. They were wonderful guests. They left our house neat and clean, and even pulled the sheets off the beds for us.
Ian was very good about communicating arrival and departure times which I really appreciated. I would absolutely rent to them again!
Ian was the perfect guest and a very positive person. Communication was flawless and he left the apartment in perfect state. Very recommendable as a guest.
