Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This private two bedroom, two bath home is in a world of its own, yet only minutes from Rt. 1. Boasting one of the most beautiful, unobstructed views of the Sheepscot River available, the home comes with full kitchen, high-speed WIFI, phone with free domestic long-distance, and, due to a request from a couple of past guests, cable TV!

Fully equipped modern kitchen includes all the appliances you'd expect (refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, electric range/convection oven, microwave) and some you wouldn't (coffee maker, panini maker, blender, lobster pot, beater, toaster oven) . Last year, we have also added a new washer/dryer, so you can go home with clean clothes. Detergent and dryer sheets provided.

Home has monstrous outdoor deck with equally monstrous 6 burner grille and table with seating for six. All bedding, towels, plates, cups, glasses, cookware and tableware provided. Every room has a view, including newly built large sunroom with two couches and additional access to deck. Two bedrooms, maximum occupancy 4 people.

Dock with deep-water float (14 foot at low tide) capable of holding boats up to 24 foot is available for use at guest risk. Dock also has fresh water for boat and fish cleaning.

About Kathy and Bob

No matter where we travel in the world, we always look forward to returning to our little house on the river. Peaceful, scenic and minutes away from great fishing, bird watching or just cruising the backwaters of coastal Maine, this house is truly a sanctuary from the outside world.

Kathy and Bob purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy and Bob chose Boothbay Harbor Area

Waterfront property, at least with a decent view and not miles and miles from civilization is something not easily found in Maine. We fell in love with Cowseagan Narrows the moment we saw it. Just coming down the drive will be enough to make you fall in love with it, too.

What makes this house unique

Magnificent views, secluded setting off lightly travelled road and moments to shopping and dining. Ultra convenient by boat or car to Boothbay Harbor.

It's actually better than the photos

Everything was great, there were no problems, and the owners could not be nicer.

Great very comfortable,

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful away from it all yet close to rt 1 so easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Close to Boothbay harbor that we loved. The home was very comfortable, the owners have thought of everything. If I could I would come back every year.

We loved our stay. The home had everything we expected and more. The river was constantly changing

  • 4 of 5

It's flow pattern. We didn't swim there because the river flows fast

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the house on the river. It was close enough to travel the mid coast, yet private enough to feel like you were miles away from anyone. The house was laid out nicely and super clean. Kathy left us some welcoming treats, and everything we needed was there. Morning coffee and the deck and evening cocktails out there was wonderful. The whole house fan worked well to keep the house cool. We would stay again.

Beautiful week away

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this gorgeous home. The open layout was perfect for our 1 year old. The second bedroom was able to fit her pack and play perfectly as well. The deck is huge and we loved grilling, eating breakfast outside, and enjoying all the views of the river! We took a lot of day trips around Maine and it was so relaxing to come back to this house at the end of each day. Such an amazing week away!
