rental cottages in Boothbay Harbor area

We are planning a trip to Boothbay for the Fisherman's festival and would like to stay in a cottage or cabin. Any recommendations? I tried to book something on several sites, but all showed availability beginning in May, but nothing in April.

Does anyone know of a good rental?

Did you look on cottageconnection.com? I just saw some on there with dates available for April.

Hi Fisherman100,

Definitely try the cottage connection as CB48 suggested. If there's nothing available check out www.boothbayharbor.com, the Chamber's site and they may know about something. You could also check the Boothbay Register online which is the local newspaper. They may have weekly rental's listed also.

April is a tough time of year to rent as many cottages are on seasonal water and often that's not turned on till May 1st or even later. It is also the time when cottage owners do spring cleaning, make repairs and get ready for the summer and they're less likely to rent out.

If you don't have any luck with looking for a cottage/condo rental, the following accomodations are open: Tugboat Inn (motel)which is right on the water downtown; Admiral's Quarters (B&B), also in town across the street from the water; Greenleaf Inn (B&B in town across from the water) and the Flagship Inn (motel)which is located just before you enter downtown and a short drive or 15 minute walk into town where most of the activities take place.

Again if you check the Chamber's site they'll have additional listings of places that will be open. Also upon arriving, pick up a copy of the Boothbay Register which usually has a pull out magazine which lists all the activities, dates, times and locations of the happenings for the Festival.

Good luck and have fun. The Fishermens' Festival is a blast. If you get the chance stop by the Boothbay Region Art Foundation's art gallery at 1 Townsend Ave. right in town (across from Sherman's Books) and check out "Fishermen's Festival: A Photographic Journey" which is an exhibit documenting in pictures many of the Festivals of the past :).

For the benefit of others interested in renting a cottage preseason, check out www.craigslist.org for Maine and Vacation Rentals. This is also a good source for cottages in season.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. If I might add one more - homeaway.com. I recently used that sight to reserve a cottage on Westport Island, but there are some other locations available as well.
