Front Porch

Boston Island is a very unique private coastal Maine island located in the Sheepscot River near Boothbay Harbor. Home to the same four families for several generations, it is full of the best things Maine has to offer: a beautiful sandy beach, incredible 360 degree water views, family fun & relaxation, and so much more.

Our family has owned Grey Cottage, a 4 bedroom 130-year old shingled seaside cottage for 45 years, and we share the unique experience that is Boston Island with special renters every summer. The island is non-electric, which creates an ambience hard to find in today’s world…imagine your family or friends “unplugged”, yet very comfortable with a propane refrigerator/freezer, stove, and dozens of antique hurricane lamps that glow cozily every evening after you have enjoyed glorious sunsets from westward-facing “Cocktail Rock”. Our well-stocked library, puzzle, and game closet is there for those occasional foggy Maine mornings, and our side lawn awaits croquet, badminton and more.

Your rental time includes use of our 17′ Parker center console boat, kept in a slip at Boothbay Region Boatyard when it is not tied up by you at our private dock. Use it to explore the beautiful world-renowned Boothbay region, and create memories to last a lifetime…..or at least until you come back again next summer.

Please contact us if you are interested in talking to us about our home, and the opportunity to spend time there.

– The Conover Family
