Paradise Cottage Amenities and Bedrooms, East Boothbay, Maine Cabin overlooking Linekin Bay. Vacation rental cottage, year-round, Saturday to Saturday in summer, with Wifi.
As guests at Paradise Cottage, you share the use of our pebble beach on a sheltered cove with guests at Seanook. The swimming here in our cove is the best on the bay because the water warms as the tide comes in over the sun-drenched pebbles, and warmth remains captured in the cove as long as the wind stays out of the southwest. This beach is also a great place to store and launch your kayaks or ours. Linekin Bay is wonderful for kayaking as it has no rivers emptying into it and thus no strong currents. You are welcome to borrow our personal sit-on-top kayaks after signing our release; we now have two singles and one seating two people.
Although the front stairs to Paradise Cottage are quite steep, an alternate access at the east end of the building has just 4 steps to get up to the deck. Once there you will find easy access to the entire cabin/cottage as it is laid out all on one level, and every room has a door to the deck.
This porch extends around two sides of the building and leads you right into the garden. A pleasant, eating area on the porch-end facing the bay includes a gas barbecue, and a maple tree that grows through a hole in the floor and shades the table and chairs. This part of the deck is a private outside retreat while also affording a
calming view of the water. Relax and breathe in the fresh, clean, and invigorating salty sea breeze! Potted plants and boxes of impatiens which last from mid-June until mid-September decorate the porch and blend it into the garden.
The two bedrooms are accessed down a wide hall that has four large windows looking into the woods. Also off the hall is one bathroom. The washer/drier are included in the closet of the middle bedroom along with an iron and ironing board, and an extra vanity sink. This middle bedroom has a queen-sized bed and views of the cove and bay with lobster boats on one side and the mossy woods through the floor-to-ceiling hall windows on the other — enjoyed only if you leave the curtains open!
There is a second bathroom integral to the large end bedroom, which has four-poster twin beds that can be put together to make a king with advance request. Both bedrooms have doors opening onto the deck. Be sure to sleep with the window ajar or the door open so you can hear waves sloshing along the shore at high tide while you snooze and wake up to birdsong in the morning. In March listen for owls hooting at night. April evenings are joyous with the calls of
returning Laughing Gulls and peepers singing from the pond. Loons call year-round, but more in winter. In addition to sounds of nature, you should listen for the various pitches of distant fog horns drifting in through your open window as you fall asleep at night.
On advance request, we can provide a booster chair with removable tray and/or a porta-crib.
