Hodgdon Cove Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,600 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

- 2 bedroom, 2 bath, front porch, eat-in kitchen, first floor master, fireplace

Spectacular Water Views from every room. Our year round 5 room cottage is located in Boothbay Harbor, nestled among the ledges of Hodgdon Cove 150 feet from the water. We purchased this home because this Cove has all the beauty the Maine coast is known for, a secluded location, and convenient access to town. With a dishwasher, washer & dryer, updated appliances, & wireless Internet, this is a perfect retreat. When not rented, this cottage serves as a vacation home for us, the owners, and when you stay here you get the attention to detail and the comforts we enjoy when we live here ourselves. The house has everything you need to prepare anything from a home cooked lobster dinner to a barbecue meal. Whether you are relaxing on the front porch enjoying the spectacular sunsets, enjoying a cozy evening by the wood burning fireplace, or sitting at the kitchen table watching the cove wildlife wake up in the morning, this is a wonderful placed to be.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage, beautiful views of the Cove. The area is close enough to everything, but far enough away that all you hear at night are the crickets.

Our kids loved exploring the yard, and also really appreciated the basket of toys the homeowners left to keep them busy. :o)

The house was clean and comfortable. Thank you for a great weekend!

Cute, charming, great for families

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It is a nice house, with nice views and convenient drive into town. It was clean and great for families because not overly formal furnishings and a room for kids too. Owner was attentive and responsive as well as her family who lives down the road. Would definitely return. Master bedroom bed is very comfortable.

Heavenly Hodgdon Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My best friends and I chose Hodgdon Cove Cottage as our home base for our girls' long weekend getaway, and could not have been more pleased! The cottage was comfortable, cozy and had a beautiful view from every room in the house. The cottage was so convenient and centrally located for all of our day trips up and down the coast of Maine. It was well-stocked for cooking when we wanted to stay in and cook for ourselves, and there were wonderful restaurants very nearby when we wanted a traditional lobster dinner out. The owner's parents, the Hamblens, were there to greet us when we arrived and were very warm and inviting people who were very willing to give us advice about restaurants and grocery stores. It was a very peaceful and restful vacation, and we all agreed that our only regret was that it was not nearly long enough! We are already talking about returning. Absolutely perfect stay! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage!

Excellent choice for a couple for an extended stay in Maine

  • 4 of 5

We just came back from a stay at Hodgdon Cove and enjoyed it very much. Although it is not waterfront, the property has lovely water views and is situated in a quiet setting just outside of Boothbay Harbor. It is very close to the Aquarium and Botanical Gardens as well as to the center of town and an excellent urgent care clinic if needed. The property is not fancy but it does have all of the basic mod cons you would want and the wi-fi works very well. One word of warning however, AT&T cell phones simply do not work at this location but the land line is fine for those needing to be in communication. For anyone contemplating purchasing a property in the area, this would be a good introduction to life in coastal Maine. Overall highly recommended.

Delightful summer cottage with a beautiful view of the water.

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed this cottage for several years. It is quite comfortable, offers lovely views of the water, and is very quiet and peaceful though close to shopping, restaurants, and a myriad of other activities. Kitchen has all of the basics, master bedroom is quite spacious and offers a very comfortable chair for reading, and the living room has plenty of seating and a flat screen tv. The second floor would be perfect for kids - a second smaller bathroom, good sized bedroom with several twin beds, and a separate tv/game room just for them. And best of all, there are plenty of windows to bring in the morning sunlight, views of boats on the water, and that wonderful ocean breeze.

Perfect Cottage to experience Boothbay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable, it has wonderful light and a nice warm feeling throughout. The owners are very nice and accommodating. All the little touches are there that you hope to find when you rent, like extra blankets, pillows, instructions on how to use tv, good kitchen utensils, etc. you feel like the owners care, which is great. The area is really beautiful and it is perfect location for visiting downtown boothbay, but having the cottage to escape back to a more rustic and quiet atmosphere. Cottage is Large enough for a family of 5 and dog to feel comfortable and not cramped. We hope to rent again in the future.
