Back Bay Cottage - Portside: Luxury Condo on Water

Condo/Apartment -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Boothbay Harbor, Maine
Portside is a year-round luxury condo with the charm of a cottage in the heart of historic Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The cottage is in the town center and yet you will find tranquility and privacy inside. We share a dock and float with the other two Back Bay Cottage units and have our own deck on the water’s edge. With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, Portside can sleep up to six people. The Portside unit is on the ground floor of the 3-unit Back Bay Cottage, built in 2006. Amenities include a state-of-the-art kitchen and appliances, an outdoor gas grill, flat-screen TVs and DVD players, high-speed internet/wifi and free private parking.

Note--the den has two twin beds (trundle beds), not bunk beds, but Flipkey doesn't give this option in the drop-down menu!

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...More

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!
