The perfect romantic retreat, Sunrise will make you fall in love all over again! Incredible breath stealing views of the tidal river near the Ovens’ Mouth Preserve is just full of aquatic wildlife like seals, sturgeon, osprey and eagles. This property is on a point of land offering water views on three sides as the river curves around the property. The house follows the same curve and was built to blend with the beautiful woodsy environment.
Ovens Mouth and Ovens Mouth Preserve are famous in this part of the world, especially to the boating community. Known for the reversing falls, the convergence of Back and Cross rivers as they head for the Sheepscot River and the the Atlantic Ocean, this area is home to eagles and heron.
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
In 1994 the Boothbay Region Land Trust purchased 146 acres on Ovens Mouth, including both the eastern and middle peninsulas. Walking trails and spectacular kayaking are thoroughly enjoyed by locals and visitors from far and wide. With a rich history and incredible natural beauty this area is now protected for all to enjoy. The narrow passages and rich tidal basins, rocky cliffs and tree lined hillsides all make beautiful scenery and photographic opportunities on misty days as well as bright sunny ones! Large sailing yachts and single-man lobster boats, day-sailers and canoers share these waters and add to the views. Explore this amazing location on the Boothbay peninsula by land or by sea and you will want to come back year after year!
The house is just beautiful, built in 1999 as a two-story family home. The owners have carved out a gorgeous condo on the ground floor, keeping the top floor for themselves, though they rarely have the opportunity to visit.
The condo has its own private entrance and curves along the water side of the house, each room has water views and doors leading to the flagstone patio and manicured, colorful gardens.
French doors lead from the bedroom into the open, airy living room. The condo is tiled throughout, helping to keep it nice and cool in the summer. Like the rest of the condo, the kitchen and dining are open, spacious and offer those unbelievable views. Gorgeous wood accents, simple and elegant décor and amazing views from the many windows are the hallmarks of this luscious condo.
The landscaped gardens and paths meander down the hill to the home’s private dock and float (shared with the owners when they are in-house) with deep water moorings available. Guests can bring their own boat (or rent locally) so ask your reservationist for details. If you like to kayak or canoe, day sail or rowboat, you will absolutely LOVE this spot!
The master bedroom suite includes a King Bed (which can be separated into two twins) and a gorgeous wood burning brick fireplace. French doors lead out to the garden and flagstone patio.
The newly renovated full bathroom has a shower/tub combination.

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 manager 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!
