1 month stay at 14B Boothbay House Hill Road, Boothbay Harbor, Ma
My trip to this beautiful studio sits right amidst the Boothbay Harbor downtown area it was a perfect location for me and my best gal my dog June it has air-conditioning it’s pet friendly it’s a studio only big enough for 1 to 2 people everything is in one room except for the bathroom I love this set up the studio apartment is very cute and was carefully curated to make this room looks so much bigger than it was! We had a great time Jason who is in charge of turnkey happen to have his office underneath the studio apartment this gentleman went above and beyond to make me happy and make sure that all was going well throughout our months today I do have to say that the owner of the studio apartment is a jackass he was rude he is disrespectful and just because he owns the studio apartment he felt that he could jump in and be disrespectful to me there was one parking space Jason had given me permission to park in the second parking spot for a short period time and we were going to a concert . My niece came to pick me up when she got there she parked in the second spot but we moved Out within 15 minutes the owner of the studio came over to my car and in front of my family decided he would be mean and ugly because I had parked in the second spot which I thought was pretty unprofessional and I would never rent the studio apartment not because of Jason intern key but because of the owner of this place and his name is Don. he runs the two salty dogs pet outfitters directly across the street and should probably stick to this because it’s the thing that he does best and should never interfere with a third-party who was trying to make my stay as beautiful as possible. Jason is the man!!

Perfect in every way!
This studio is a small space, but the owners and managers have thought of everything and have built in all sorts of storage. The linens and towels are luxurious. Even though it is pet-friendly, there is absolutely NO trace of any prior doggie visitors. My husband has an incredible sense of smell and he couldn't detect anything but clean, fresh air in the apartment. The kitchen is fully stocked, including can opener, knives, scissors, etc. I brought a ton of supplies that were unnecessary because the place is so well stocked. The location is perfect, with a fantastic view of the harbor. The deck is great for hanging out, people watching, and having a nice cup of coffee in the morning. It is right in the heart of town and a very short walk from almost anything (including the pet supply store right across the street!). It's not cheap, but it is worth every penny! Highly recommended!!

Wonderful place in a fantastic location
Just a wonderful place to stay. This studio was beautifully decorated and had every amenity you need. The owners did a fantastic job of making the most of the space and providing everything you need. The location was perfect, right in town with a nice view of the harbor from the balcony. Turnkey makes the rental experience very easy. We will definitely reserve this spot on our next Boothbay visit.

Rented coal shack for the second time while in town for a seminar. Enjoyed it as much, if not more, this time as weather was great. Comfortable, convenient and cute studio with everything we needed.

Would offer to buy this place right now
This was an amazing property in a great harbor town. Located all of 100 steps from Boothbay Harbor and the great shops and restaurants the town has to offer. The amenities inside the property were the biggest surprise. It had everything you need to cook and relax - which came in handy for us due to some bad weather. Would literally offer to buy this property right now from this management team - it was that great.

High quality, cozy, sheik
We had a great time in the cozy, high end and well appointed Coal Shack. Every detail was considered (local products, tampons, barware, fluffy towels and comfy sheets). It's a beautiful space. We took a few design ideas and hope to make them our own at our home in Philadelphia. We were in Boothbay Harbor for two days of intense rain so the comfort of the Coal Shack was even more appreciated. It's centrally located to every cool shop and great restaurant in the area. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!

By far my favorite
I was so excited to stay here,this adorable place had everything we needed so they really catered to everyone's needs,fully stocked for cooking needed for nothing in the appliance dept. Well done clean and cute would stay again and again, Debra and Todd from Sarasota Fl

Perfectly appointed studio; charming in-town experience.
If anything the description of this studio was understated. The photographs look great, but they cannot quote capture the details that the owners obviously enjoyed creating.

First, the apartment is scrupulously clean. When a rental is “pet friendly,” as this one thankfully is, sometimes it can be obvious that there were earlier pet guests. We wouldn’t have know that we weren’t the first inhabitants; it was that clean.

Every need that crossed our minds was provided for. (And some things we didn’t even know we needed, like two kinds of olive oil and organic Egyptian Duqqa herb blend.) Amenities include organic cotton sheets with stratospheric thread counts. DKNY quilts. Cable television with Netflix and Amazon Prime. Ice maker. River stone lined shower. Steam convection oven. And, and, and...

Boothbay Harbor is refreshingly walkable, and The Coal Shack is central, but even so, the street is quiet at night.

The Coal Shack is really a wonderful way to pamper yourself without breaking the bank. It’s no wonder Down East magazine just recently named it the best rental in Maine — as in the entire state of Maine!

We have rented in the Boothbay Harbor area many times but never in town. This change of location was wonderful. The studio apartment though small was a great getaway for a few days.

Perfect location to all of the activities
Very beautiful small apartment rental with excellent finishes. The kitchen has everything you could possible need if you desire to make a meal My husband and I spent many hours on the comfortable deck watching the world go by. This is a dog friendly rental and my Schnauzer and Pappillon spent countless hours on the deck as well. There is a large Television with a washer/dryer and dishwasher, I would highly recommend! Please be aware on one drawback, there is a staircase in the back on the apartment, I was fine with it but if you are an older person, it may not work for you.

Just Right
Walking in....BANG! It's all there, in one well laid out studio. Partitioned nicely to separate the bed, bathroom, kitchen, living area and the wonderful deck. The furniture, appliances, and fixings were of high quality. Everything including; linens, appliances, storage, toilet, shower etc. were very clean. Can't say enough. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Such a cute little apartment in the middle of Boothbay harbor
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this adorable apartment in boothbay harbor! We were able to bring our dog and enjoy all of the outdoor activities with her! I wish we could have stayed longer! The rental was clean and had everything we could ever need! We loved that the owners owned the pet store across the street. Great people and such a cute store!

We loved this little gem in downtown Boothbay Harbor. Only steps away from
restaurants, bars, and music. The deck overlooks the harbor and is a great place to have a glass of wine and unwind. We will definitely be back!

Boothbay with Jerry
The Coal Shack and Boothbay were GREAT! The location and the studio apartment were spot on! We visited Boothbay with our Boxer, Jerry. Boothbay is very pet friendly and one of Jerry's favorite stops was The Two Salty Dogs, a pet store that was run by a friendly owner and staff! As they say in Maine, "the way life ought to be." We look forward to returning again soon!

Needed to relax
This is a lovely little place with a fabulous deck. We (my husband and my Shiatsu, Daisy.) sat on the deck reading and people watching. It was amazing to see how many different types of people visit Boothbay Harbor. The view is wonderful. You can park your car and walk just about everywhere.

This place is amazing and so charming. It's the second time I have rented in the past 2 months - I adore it. The pictures cannot do it justice. The owners have thought of every thing. The kitchen is better equipped than my kitchen at home and the entire place was spotless. The little decorative details are incredible - as is the location. We met the owners while staying there. They provided us with a tour of the 3 bedroom rental in the same building. The details in that rental are equally amazing. If you have a dog, both rentals are perfect - the owners are such dog lovers are super nice. I forgot some items and they sent them along right away.
If you are looking for a relaxing, super clean - adorable rental in a Maine seaside town - this place is the one for you. I can't wait to go back

Kool Shack
Fridge is a beverage ridge - ice maker, no freezer. Oven is high-end steam not conventional. Dinner plates - fiesta ware - more like luncheon plates - small and would not fit the lobster. The place is very nice and centrally located. I could live there for a full summer. Our 7 lb Morkie loved it.

Quaint studio ; great location, pet friendly
Stayed in this unique little gem in the heart of boothbay harbor in April, as I needed to attend a course at the local Healthcare facility. My husband and our dog came along since studio was pet friendly. Our Rotti just had ACL surgery, so she was crated much of the time, but we gave her time out on the deck as a treat. Nicely decorated and cozy with all comforts of home. Met the owner the day we checked out, as we went across street to their store, two salty dogs, to get kai a treat. Would stay again, and again...hopefully longer and warmer weather next time.

Great intimate space!y
We recently stayed at the Coal Shack with our lab, Lily. We all loved it. The pictures on line don't do it justice. The space is roomier than it looks. We were very comfortable. The kitchen is a treat to cook in! All new high end appliances. Location is perfect to wander in town and visit the shops. We had to shorten our planned stay. Very sad to leave. We definitely hope to be back!

Absolutely Amazing!
The Coal Shack was an absolutely perfect getaway. My boyfriend, our pupp, and I went up to Boothbay for a quick weekend away from Boston. The place itself was flawless - incredibly clean and extremely comfy with everything that you could possibly need readily accessible. Everything from furnishings to hardware was top of the line and the design was meticulously thought out. Charming beyond words. We were lucky enough to meet the owners and get to know them a bit - nicest couple ever with 3 sweet black labs! Made us feel completely at home and gave us a long list of recommendations for activities and food in the area. They use TurnKey to handle logistics so arrival and departure was seamless. We had some problems with the stove top and oven but since it wasn't able to be resolved during our stay, both parties arranged for compensation for the inconvenience. Great service, great place! We will certainly be back!

Our stay at the Coal Shack was all we had hoped it would be: great location, furnished with all you would ever need, comfortable bed and excellent quality kitchen tools and appliances. The construction next door was major but took place during the day while we were out. A real gem! TurnKey was easy to work with, very prompt and thorough.

We had the best time in Boothbay Harbor thanks to the Coal Shack! Everything was perfect. The studio is decorated with much detail and everything you need for a weekend. You can even do laundry. Kitchen is stocked to prepare elaborate meals or restaurants are just steps away. This studio is in the center of town. The very minor construction next door is no issue at all. Parking right out front. You will not regret this trip except that you should've stayed longer! Jason from TurnKey is very helpful and knowledgeable about recommendations and making your stay exquisite. Would definitely return!
