Paradise Cottage is both a cabin in the woods and a cottage by the sea; the best of both. Cozy and inviting, it can be your week of retreat. Relax and breathe in the fresh, invigorating salt breeze! Guests at Paradise Cottage have the use of our pebble beach on the cove, shared only by us and guests at our two properties, where the water warms in summer as it comes in over the sun-drenched pebbles making it the warmest water on the mid-coast for swimming.
This shore is also a good place to store and then launch your kayaks, or you are welcome to borrow one of our three sit-on-tops after signing our release. Rest, relax, read, while you take in the beautiful natural surroundings, or traverse the three miles to Boothbay Harbor for gourmet restaurants, boat cruises, shops, art galleries, and more.
Although the front entrance is quite steep, the side end of the deck has a minimum of four steps to enter Paradise Cottage. Once you are on this level you will have access to the entire house with a wide interior hall along the back connecting all the rooms as does the deck extending the length of the building on the outside. The hall on the back has four large windows offering expansive views up the slope into the woods behind. If you come in June, you can enjoy the booming Azaleas and Rhododendrons there. The “great room” includes a sofa, TV, and views, a wood stove, the dining area, and a small, but complete kitchen. The deck which borders the house on two sides, expands the living space and blends it into the gardens. The cottage is mostly carpeted. Two baths and the compact but complete kitchen make your stay more comfortable.
To find Paradise Cottage on the map below you can actually zoom in on the “Satellite” view and locate the “dog-leg” dock at Seanook. Then our three buildings appear in a straight line from west to east. Seanook is the first one by the dock, then Paradise Cottage, and lastly Paradise Studio.
In 1952 my father built the main room of Paradise Cottage across the road from Seanook for my grandmother. She had the bedroom added, but you walked through the bathroom to get to it. When I acquired the properties in 1997, I renovated and winterized both cottages, also adding the wide and windowed back hall and end bedroom to Paradise Cottage.
It is now a year-round 2 bedroom, 2 bath vacation cabin rented by the week only in Shoulder and Summer Seasons, and additionally with a 2-night minimum and by the month in fall, winter, and spring.
The use of our linens is optional at $35 for just 2 people, $60 for 3 – 4 people. We are required to collect 9% tax. Four adults is the maximum for this small house.
