GARRAVALE | BOOTHBAY HARBOR | WEST HARBOR POND | FISHING | KAYAK AND CANOE PROVIDED | FAMILY VACATION
Garravale is situated at the head of one-mile-long West Harbor Pond, a fresh water lake next to the sea. This garrison style cottage has plenty of room for the family with four bedrooms and two baths, eat in kitchen and open living/dining room; not to mention the large wrap deck just off the kitchen, and offers water views from every room. The large yard is partially fenced and the house sits back from the road. The owners of this cottage provide a kayak and canoe for their guest's use. Fishing in this lake is very good. How about a swim right off the dock to cool off after a day of exploring around the area. With 500 feet of waterfront and an acre of land there is plenty of room for all.
You are only a short drive to Boothbay Harbor for shopping,dining, whale watchings, lobster and more. The Maine State Aquarium is less than two miles from this cottage as well. Perhaps you would like to pat a shark or play with a skate? Or, bring a picnic lunch and sit at one of the outdoor tables to enjoy panoramic views of the Harbor and all its boating activity. Take a drive or bike ride to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens to enjoy the Garden of the Five Senses or the fabulous Children's Garden. The Cafe serves great food or a quick snack. Don't forget to visit the Fairy Houses and perhaps add one of your own.

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION?
Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore, when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make your vacation perfect!
