We absolutely loved staying in the Boathouse in Holly Cove. From campfires to kayaking, we truly had the perfect weekend. The Boathouse is the perfect type of glamping.
The beds were so comfortable and the lanterns lit the place at night in an almost romantic way. The toilet was easy to use and the place was kindly stocked with coffee cups, drinking cups, and even firewood! Channing and her husband were very kind and responsive. They even jumped our car when our battery died--can't thank them enough! We can't wait to come back to this beautiful location, it was truly a spectacular space.

We feel so lucky to have visited this quiet and idyllic bayside property! If you're lucky enough to score perfect weather during your visit as we did, it's hard to imagine wanting to be anywhere else. We enjoyed every moment, from swinging in the fun and stylish boathouse chairs in the afternoon sun, to reading on the grassy lawn, to watching the sunset on the dock — and using the hosts' kayaks in the bay! All the thoughtful little touches, like the lanterns, bathroom space, water jugs, firewood and fire pit made us feel extra comfortable and welcome. Channing was extremely responsive when we needed anything. And the goats and chickens were adorable! Book this campsite if you're looking for a bit of glamping (but no electricity) and to share a lovely property - with a stunning view - for a few days. The historic town is also fun to explore. Though we shared the property with the family and you can see their house from the boathouse, they give you as much space as you want and it really feels private and secluded, especially in the boathouse.

My son and I spent the night in The Boathouse and it exceeded all my expectations. Chris and Channing are the nicest family. There is so much to do but you could spend the entire time on the dock taking in the breeze and watching the sunset. Spectacular site. Would love to venture back again.
