“A Cozy Place for a Winter Getaway”
Reviewed 1 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We enjoyed a week at Portside so much last summer that we decided this would be the perfect place to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary in February. We took champagne and caviar and other food and drinks for the week. We enjoyed the beautiful water view from the living room and started each day there with coffee by the fireplace. That was a favorite spot in the evening, too, for watching movies on the new big screen TV.

Some of our favorite restaurants and coffee shops were closed for the season or had limited hours, but we walked to China by the Sea for lunch a couple of times. The service was friendly, and the food was wonderful. We also walked to Eventide, a shop where we bought cheese, bread, pate and homemade soup to take back to the cottage.

The quiet time in Boothbay Harbor in February was nice for taking walks every day in the village or across the footbridge. Anyone looking for a peaceful winter vacation, this is the place. Portside is a spacious, yet cozy, luxury condo right in the middle of the village.

We're looking forward to returning in June, visiting lots of shops and restaurants and spending time on the deck and the dock at Portside.

So glad you enjoyed, even in the winter! Next time you're back in the off season, definitely try the Thistle Inn (under new management), the Carriage House and Boathouse Bistro. All fantastic and open year round!

“Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

If I could only use one word it would be 'Perfect'. The location was awesome. We parked our car and walked to everything. The house sits on the water, next to restaurants and 1/4 block from all tourist shops. Two minute walk to get on a boat for a cruise tour. The library is a block away and had a movie on a large outdoor screen after dark. We walked to the grocery store. House is gorgeous. Kitchen is huge and well appointed. We did a lobster dinner one night and found 2 very large pots in the pantry that were perfect. Lots of games and puzzles. Four tv's. Very nice deck and dock to sit and watch the kayaks go past. You are in the heart of everything in this house and yet you have peace and relaxation just sitting out on the dock. It was 'Perfect'.

We have rented this property five summers in a row with our family including in-laws and to young children. We would without hesitation recommend it to anyone else thinking about staying in BBH for the week. The location is perfect, right in the heart of town with access to a dock float right on the inner harbor. The amenities are excellent. A home away from home. Abby has thought of it all. Enough videos, books, board games for rainy days and lots of well researched activities when the weather is beautiful outside. The kitchen is well outfitted and every detail has been considered. We highly recommend a stay.
