Expect spectacular sunrises and sunsets from this most charming Maine guest cottage. Perched over the ocean in a picturesque little cove on Capitol Island, Barnacle has water views from every room. A separate outbuilding with one bedroom and its own bath allows for complete privacy, while the main part of this cottage is host to another 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Alongside the deck are steps down to the ocean, and kayaks are available for your use.
This cottage was originally built to house the staff for the Albonegan Inn. Once the Inn became a private home, Barnacle was renovated to serve as a guest cottage. Capitol Island is accessible by a wooden bridge. The island is three quarters of a mile long, has 2 beaches, a marina, tennis court, and community house complete with ping pong table and rocking chairs on the porch. It's a fabulous step back in time and a great place to slow down and just breathe.
It is a scenic 4 mile drive to downtown Boothbay Harbor, and about 6 miles to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Please note this cottage does not have laundry facilities or television. Harbor's Choice Laundry is 4.5 miles away, and there is plenty to see and do on the island to keep everyone busy!

We had an excellent time in this lovely cottage on the water. We had easy access to a forest for walking, tennis, kayaking. Wendy could not have been more helpful. We’ll be back!
Mindy, July 2020
Beautiful seaside location, easy to launch the great kayaks that are available. Nice tennis courts and local walks.

Everyone was so pleasant and inviting. Wendy had all of our needs covered. This was one of our favorite family vacations. We will return as soon as we can!
