About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

This lovely post and beam home is conveniently located on the Pemaquid Peninsula and is perfect for those who want a stress-free and quiet vacation get-away.

About Sandra Guzas

My husband and I grew up in Worcester, MA and lived most of our lives in the Massachusetts area. When our children 'flew the nest' we decided to move to New Hampshire, which is where we currently reside. We have always wanted a home in Maine.

Sandra Guzas purchased this house in 2006

Why Sandra Guzas chose Boothbay Harbor Area

We found this wonderful property in Bristol many years ago and were finally able to build our dream home as well as a comfortable smaller version for our children to use. We decided to open up our lovely smaller property to renters who could enjoy the peace and serenity of the area as well as the many activities available in the spring, summer and fall.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located to many attractions in the mid-coast area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I would like to thank you for the use of your cottage, we had a wonderful time there. It was clean and well kept, just the right amount of space for the two of us. Boyd Pond was very relaxing we would do our morning walks on Quail Run Road and go to the pond after each walk and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Once again we thank you for the use of your home.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful decor to all the needed necessities this place is truly a home away from home! We absolutely loved this rental! It had everything you could think of needing ...literally all you need to bring is your clothes and then make a visit to the grocery store and your stay will be wonderful! Although we did not have a chance to meet Sandra all our communication was great and things were just as described! Much better than a hotel and definitely a better value! We will be back in the future!

Tranquil and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The Guzas have a lovely, peaceful vacation home in the midst of the Pemaquid Peninsula woods. It was well stocked and welcoming. Hooking up to WiFi was a little more techy than I am accustomed to . . . in the end, stayed off the grid. This was a great home base for my cousin and I to use for our visit to MidCoast Maine.

Will Rent Again

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage, close to my home, for my daughter and her family, which includes my three grandsons aged 11 thru 17 years. They loved the cottage and had a great time fishing and kayaking. So much so, that they didn't want to leave. It was extremely clean and the kitchen had everything a cook could desire. The beds were comfortable and WIFI sevice was excellent. Thank you so much for sharing this little bit of heaven with my family.
