THANKFULNEST | EAST BOOTHBAY MAINE | OCEAN POINT|GRIMES COVE | OPEN OCEAN| PUBLIC BEACH & BOAT LAUNCH NEARBY | Dog FRIENDLY
Description from the manager
Grime’s Cove Avenue is a pine tree lined street on the Eastern most tip of the coastal community of the Ocean Point Colony Trust. The ocean is seen and the salt air smelled from the front windows of the cottage. The rock-bound coast is 200 yards from the front door, easily accessible and great for walking, exploring and sitting, napping, hiding and seeking. Grimes Cove, a public beach, boat launch and gathering place for vacationers to swim, kayak and read on the rocks, is just a short walk from the cottage. The Shore Road winds along the coast for over a mile allowing one to throw a stone in the ocean at any point. The magical sunsets and gorgeous views make for unlimited 'photo ops'. Thankfulnest evokes a thankfulness for the natural beauty that is the Maine Coast.
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
Walking, birding, kayaking, canoeing and swimming are on the agenda from Thankfulnest. Ocean Point is a beautiful tip of land in East Boothbay, a quaint little cottage community. Photographers the world over come here for the beautiful scenes nature serves up every single day. With views stretching out to the ocean, there are islands, shoals, boats of every size and type as well as aquatic wildlife to watch for! Whales, seals, otters and porpoise along with all kinds of shore birds play hide-and-seek off the shore.
Make that morning cup of coffee and sit on the deck enjoying the sounds of the ocean and sight of the sun rising – what a great beginning to the day. Or end the day with family conversation or yard games as you watch the sunset.
Head over to The Ocean Point Inn for their famous chowder or lobster rolls, a traditional lobster dinner or just for cocktails. Heading back towards town are several restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries for you to explore. And of course, you are a beautiful 10-minute drive from the village of Boothbay Harbor.
Thankfulnest is a dog-friendly, two-story Maine Cottage with 4 bedrooms and 1 ½ bathrooms, a lovely yard and open porch in the back yard.

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!
