Thompson Cottages
Reviewed 31 July 2014

I have been going to Thompson's Cottages for about 6 years now and have come to think of Alice and Dick as part of my extended family. They are gracious hosts and have provided me with an excellent 'Maine' experience, from trips on their boat to the wonderful blueberry pie. The view from the White Cottage is ever changing and cathartic. A perfect place to get away from it all.

The Thompson Cottages are a quiet, perfect escape with quintessential Maine views. We chose the tan cottage across the street from the dock. It was private and extremely clean. The bathroom and floors seemed recently redone. The hosts live on the property and are so welcoming and kind. They even bake pie for you! (We chose lemon and chocolate- both amazing). Robinson's is a famed seafood establishment across the street and we enjoyed the proximity for a quick chowder run- yet the cottage is up the hill so it remains private. There is much to do in Boothbay Harbor and on Southport and this is a great spot to enjoy it all!

we have been staying at the Thompson Cottages in Southport Maine for a number of years. Last year we missed our visit..this year we were there for Memorial Day Weekend! What a delight nothing has changed..cabin (we call the Lobster Shack) right on the water, wonderful views, Clean, and welcoming and a King Size bed! Alice and Dick have thought of everything right down to the lobster pot. Can't wait for our next visit..It will be soon!

We rented the dockside cottage for a week in July 2009. It was very clean and well appointed. The porch overlooking the dock and Townsend Gut were great. We sat and watched the boats every morning and evening. We docked our small boat right at our back door which was very convenient. From there we explored the coast from Port Clyde to the Kennebec and all points in between. The owners were very thoughtful and attentive; they went above and beyond to make us feel at home.

Room Tip: The dockside cottage is right on the street (a little noisy), but overlooks the water. The other cot...

We stayed in the Dockside Cottage that was right on the dock with a deck overlooking the water. It had a wonderful view of the harbor and lobster docks. The cottage was quite large with a full kitchen, living room, and one bedroom. It was very clean and comfortable. Our host, Alice included a free boat ride to Boothbay Harbor and back. Steps from the cottage is Robinson's Wharf Restaurant, so, there is no need to drive to have an excellent lobster dinner with steamers that is perfectly prepared. Also, there is a seafood shop at Robinson's if you prefer to prepare your own dinner. It was a fantastic place to stay and if we are ever in the Boothbay Harbor area again, we will definitely stay at Thompson Cottages again. Thanks Alice and Dick for a wonderful stay.
