Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay in the cottage in Boothbay. It was the start of our Maine vacation and we felt at home and relaxed from the first day there. The house is exactly as it is described on HomeAway and the owners were gracious with answers to questions and always prompt. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable!

Beautiful views from a cottage full of space and light.

  • 5 of 5

Five years ago we stayed at the cottage next door, Morning Star, and I have always wanted to come back, not only because the location is incredible, but because the house was so clean, light, and well-appointed. Morning Star was not available so we rented Little Dipper for my daughter's after-graduation vacation week. It was absolutely gorgeous and was the perfect space for a group of family and friends that ranged anywhere from ten people to five people during the week. There was plenty of room, comfortable beds, great views from every room, and the dock was a great place to watch the sunset. Since it was late May / early June, many of the days were cold and/or rainy, but the house was so open and light, we never felt confined or bothered that we couldn't be outside all the time. The house brings the outside in. Kathy and George also have impeccable taste and have thought of everything for your comfort in terms of cooking and comfort. Also, although it is not in Boothbay Harbor proper, it is within walking distance to the beautiful Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and Trevett's General Store. There are also many lovely trails on Barter's Island and right down the road at Gregory Preserve. The town is an easy drive from the house, but you really have no reasno to leave. This was a great stay, and I hope we will be back again.

We had a terrific time with our two young children at Little Dipper! The house and views are breathtaking. Some of our favorite things included hiking, kayaking, watching sunsets, sea glass hunting, swimming in the lake (nearby), day trip to Monhegan island, Reid State Park, farmer's market, and terrific picnic lunches from Southport and East Boothbay General Stores. We had dinner in several times because it was hard to be away from the view! Our kids loved the lobster boat tour with Captain Clive Perrin and we had a delicious dinner out at the Lobster Dock. We also ate a ton of ice cream at Sarah's Scoops and Downeast Ice Cream Factory. My husband enjoyed the beer from the Boothbay Brewing Company. Kids also liked the railway village. We look forward to being able to return to LDC one day!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

Little Dipper Cottage is a magical place -- filled with beauty and light, and featuring the most extraordinary ocean views you can imagine. My husband, daughter, and I have been vacationing in the Boothbay Harbor area for more than 20 years, and all of us agree that this lovely house, with its addictive screened porch, is our new favorite.

Perfect Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage in a prime location in Sawyers Island. The owners have done a wonderful job at renovating and maintaining this cottage in impeccable condition. It is tastefully decorated with plenty of room and a very comfortable porch overlooking the water. We are very grateful we found this gem and look forward to returning with our family.

A slice of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

The Little Dipper cottage exceeded our expectations...spectacular views, perfectly located, beautifully appointed...our family of 5 (with children ranging ages 5-15) plus some additional friends (we had up to 8 stay with plenty of room and comfort) made memories to last a lifetime..exploring Boothbay Harbor, sailing, beach combing...but we especially enjoyed sitting on the screened porch relaxing and taking in the picture perfect scenery...we are looking forward to our return for many more summers to come!
