This was our 2nd time here at Saltaire - and loved it again!! We were here 2 yrs ago with our 11 month old, and this time traveled with our 1yr and 3yr old children. A wonderful place to stay. The views of the ocean/harbor are perfect - beautiful and fun to watch the lobster boats, kayakers, ospreys, and even an occasional porpoise! The dock is excellent - great for fishing (including squid at night) and enjoying the ocean. Would be perfect for those bringing or renting a boat. Loved the cottage feel of the house (log cabin style and feeling like a real getaway). The beach for the nice, clear lake is directly across the street and perfect for swimming with little ones! Neighborhood VERY friendly to us. Loved Boothbay Harbor town itself - a very short (5-10min) drive away and plenty to see/eat/do! Only downside is the MANY steps - 36 from the driveway to the house and 54 from house to the dock/water....but made for good exercise to burn off the vacation calories and certainly did not deter our decision to return to this cottage this year. Also - the porch rail openings for toddlers <age 2 requires full monitoring - but very friendly neighbors let us borrow a volleyball net to shore it up (but of course, monitoring still needed).
