You will be in awe.

View all the ocean activity from the porch during breakfast, lunch and dinner. On a clear night watch for shooting stars or find all the constellations with help from the L.L. Bean telescope.

About Kathy

We are from Massachusetts and our grandparents purchased this cottage in honor of their son who served in World War II as a pilot. Our family summer vacations have been spent here for many years and we look forward to many more.

We painted the front of the cottage with Red, White and Blue colors to honor our men and women who serve our country with respect and those who have before them. We planted yellow flowers in our flower boxes to represent our hope of their safe return home.

Why Kathy chose Boothbay Harbor Area

Many memories have been made here during vacations, family reunions, honeymoons and weekend getaways. We welcome you to be our guests and make your own memories to share with family and friends. You are sure to make a few if you stay here. Come be our guest and experience the comfort of 'Best View in ME' located on Ocean Point Maine.

What makes this cottage unique

Ocean Point is one of the most beautiful places in Maine. Our place is unique because we own ocean property which gives us access to use small crafts, go swimming, fishing, snorkeling and we can explore the tide-pools and shoreline just steps from our door. Our cottage also sits on a hilltop that faces southwest and allows us to watch the ocean activity, sea life and sunsets that are directly in front of the cottage.

We have had many Lobster feasts on the porch with friends and family. Those who don't make it down to the rocks for the evening sunset can stay right where they are on the porch and still have a view of the spectacular colors that wash over the sky. From our place you can see two lighthouses that light up at night and listen to the fog horn blow. Many nights of deep sleep can be had by all with the sounds of the waves and the smell of the ocean air. Come and experience it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful cottage with such a great view. The weather couldn't have been better. We hope to come back next year.

A Little Bit of Heaven on the Maine Coast

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our family vacation, 92 year old mother and two sisters, brother and their spouses, at the BEST VIEW in Maine. This cottage is well appointed with everything your family could need for their vacation. It is situated on a rise across the street from the rocky Maine shore on Ocean Point. Wonderful views, nice area for walks, short drive to both East Boothbay and Boothbay for restaurants, shopping, boat tours, kayak rentals, people watching. This area offers botanical gardens, marine labs, lighthouses, transportation museum, fish in a dish, many lobster options including the coop, windjammers and much, much more. The cottage is a well maintained family treasure having served many family generations and is well loved. It was a pleasure for our family to be able to gather in this special place for a time of rest and relaxation.

It is truly a special place. We hope that you will share your memories with friends and family so they may take the opportunity to experience Maine at Best View In ME. There is nothing like being on the coast of Maine. Your invitation to return for more of Maine is always open here at Best View. Thank you for your kind review. Sincerely, Kate and Family ~ Owners

Great Location, Good Value

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a great location and the view lives up to the name. The house is not modern, but that doesn't take away from the stay. The value is great. Thank you to the owners for opening their vacation home to others at a reasonable rate.

Cute & Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is cozy yet spacious with 4 bedrooms, all with ocean views. It is fully equipped, just bring your suitcases! Kathy and her property manager, David, were quick to respond to any questions and were a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole rental process. They had one goal in mind, to be sure we were well cared for. Our family so enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the lobster boats & seals as well as being treated to seeing a pair of loons. We enjoyed long walks along the ocean and the ledges off the point. We look forward to returning next year. Kathy, thank you for opening your lovely home for our enjoyment.

Classic Older Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

"Best View in Maine" is a perfect blend of an old-fashioned Maine cottage with modern amenities. The location at Ocean Point gives us access to one of the most beautiful areas of the Maine coast where we go for long pleasant walks along the water, or just sit on the porch with our morning coffee and watch the lobster boats. We are repeat renters of this property and look forward to another wonderful Maine vacation at "Best View".

JOE and SAMANTHA...Sept 18-28

  • 5 of 5

Good morning Kathy--Samantha and I had a wonderful time ..your home was the perfect location for us and equipped with everything we needed..I have been to the are many times but your place was the best. We drove from Michigan with a truck thinking we would need a ton of things to make it feel like home..i was wrong, so next time we fly. Personally, the most enjoyable time for me was grabbing a cup of Joe and sitting on the water watching the lobster boats pull in their catch. The plan was to eat lobster every day but when we discovered Ports of Italy, all of that changed..(except for the oysters on the half shell which we managed to eat about 6 dozen).. My only disappointment, should say huge disappointment, was to learn that Best View was not available next year at the same time..Dave, the property manager, was great to work with. You are fortunate to have him..If by chance, the last 2 weeks in September open up, PLEASE let me know..Dave has all of our contact information..thanks, J and S

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review Joe and Samantha. We want our guests who come from afar to relax when they arrive. This is why we stock up with all the paper goods, spices, cooking oil, sugar, and many other items needed for you with no worries when you walk in the door. Michigan is a long way to drive in a truck so we are thrilled you'll fly next time knowing you'll feel right at home. We share your love of morning coffee out by the rocks watching the fresh catch of Maine Losbters. Our hope is we can accommodate you during another time of the season and you're right about David, he is a treasure to our guests and we are fortunate to have his expertise. We look forward to having you return to "Best View in ME" in the near future to enjoy all that Maine has to offer, including Ports of Italy, lobsters and oysters. So delicious. Sincerely, Kate ~ owner

Wonderful Old Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

"Best View in Maine" is a cottage in the historical colony of Ocean Point, Maine. The cottage has its own history which is outlined in the booklet available. It is a cozy blend of old-fashioned Maine with up to date amenities. The highlight of the cottage is the front porch with it's incredible view! It's a place to have morning coffee while watching the lobster boats haul their traps. A place to read and enjoy nature (I saw a bald eagle!). And a place to gather in the late afternoon to gossip, and have a pre dinner cocktail while watching the spectacular sunsets. Our vacation was a girls' getaway. We shopped, ate lobster, took early morning walks along the shore road, caught up on family joys and dramas, and one of us actually went for a short swim in chilly Linekin Bay! It was a wonderful time in a magical place!

Owner's Response: We are always so delighted when we hear news of our guests stay at our comfortable and cozy Maine cottage. It brings a smile to us when we know that what is in our description of the cottage is actually what is true and real by reading guest reviews. How wonderful it is to know a Bald Eagle was spotted right here at this very spot. Knowing our guests are exploring the waters of Maine brings memories of diving for starfish when we were kids. Thank you for all of your heart felt comments of your stay at "Best View in ME."
