Ron and MaryEllen are great hosts! They are very accommodating and are there if you need help with anything. Seanook is a beautiful and well equipped location. The views are amazing. Even on a rainy day it is a perfect place to be. This is our 8th year and our 3 kids look forward to it every year.
Thanks for the memories and more to come!
The Boothbay area is so appealing, with intriguing harbor views, quaint houses, shops and eateries. This property, uniquely situated right on the water, affords wonderful views from every room. Because the weather was so inhospitable, we spent less time exploring the area than we normally would, so having a warm, comfortable cottage to hole up in was appreciated. We did venture out to photograph a couple of lighthouses, and had some top-notch dining experiences -- Boathouse Bistro, Thistle Inn, Brass Compass (in Rockland).
When we travel, my husband and I usually are most interested in: a comfortable bed, privacy, great views, as well as proximity to birding, hiking, and other nature-oriented activities. Seanook delivers in each category. Birding from every room was a wonderful bonus. When we return for a warmer, sunnier experience, I'm sure we'll experience a spectacular sunset or two.
This cottage is welcoming and comfortable, and is literally on the water. The tides go in and out on 3 sides of the house making it feel like you are a part of the ocean. Waterfowl abound, and the views are spectacular. Relaxing, peaceful and surrounded by natural beauty. The owners are very thoughtful and helpful with any questions you might have. Lots to do in the area no matter what season.
Your truly are surrounded by the ocean. You can sit at the kitchen table, on the couch, or lay in bed and stare at the ocean. A relaxing cottage, with beautiful views of the ocean.
We had a fabulous time at the Seanook Cottage in East Boothbay. The cottage had everything we needed and the Hosts Ron and Mary Ellen were extremely friendly and attentive. Our dog Stanley enjoyed the trip as much as we did! We saw Harbor Seals and Bald Eagles just off of the Dock from the beautiful sunroom. You couldn't ask for a better place to rent in Maine, The way life should be!
Oh, this place is something else!!! We were fortunate enough to be able to stay here during the spectacular color show in mid October. This is New England at its most glorious. Tucked among a wooded lot and nestled off the watery inlet, this lovely place is wrapped in floor to ceiling windows on three sides so that no matter where you turn, your heart is warmed by the sight. AND Mary Ellen and Ron have thought to answer every need, and dressed this place in such wonderful little details that one really feels cared for her. Whether it is for a night or a season, if you are contemplating a perfect retreat, Seanook is your best bet!
We had a wonderful time at Seanook. You couldn't ask for a nicer place. Everything you need is provided for you. Mary Ellen and Ron are gracious owners. The views are beautiful and watching the lobsterman going in and out in the mornings was such fun. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
