We love this rental and try to go as frequently as we can.

Overall, the studio apartment was lovely. Enough space for myself, my husband and our two Labs! Amenities in the apartment were just as described. Would definitely stay again. The only issue was with the code upon arrival and the lock for the door was difficult to use. TurnKey staff was very attentive with lock issue. Very welcoming, pet friendly town!

Just perfect!

This is our second time staying at The Coal Shack and it was awesome. It is so hard to find dog friendly rentals and this one is nicer than most places that do not allow pets. We love it!

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!!

Wonderful unique rental. Absolutely wonderful magical rental

The apartment was exactly as it was described and photographed. It is beautifully equipped. Centrally located to everything and still nice and quiet.

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.

We were very satisfied with the place in every way.

perfect weekend away, enjoyed the apartment, the local restaurants and paddleboarding.

We truly enjoyed our stay and was happy to bring our dog with us. The place was just like the pictures, top of the line fixtures, vaulted ceilings, and the location could not be beat. Views of the water and the shops, restaurants were right outside the door. Such a charming place and very relaxing.

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!

We had THE BEST stay. The property is top notch and full stocked...and welcomes big dogs. What more could you ask for. The deck is the best view of the harbor with ultimate people watching.

The Coal Shack was the perfect place to stay for our getaway. My husband and I and our two pups loved hanging out on the balcony. The location was perfect as restaurants and shops (Two Salty Dogs store was right across the street) were all right there or only a few minute walk away. The Coal Shack was extremely clean and had beautiful details throughout. Turnkey made Check in and check out super easy. We will most definitely be coming back!

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!

Great location in a beautifully decorated studio apartment. Wouldn't change a thing.
Mark M. September 27, 2017
Great spot close to everything. Nice high-end amenities topped off by a great deck over looking Boothbay Harbour.
Kristen H. July 2, 2017
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

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!
Dawn G. March 4, 2018
Great location, right in the heart of the harbor. Eventide Specialties right across the street has great food! Would recommend staying here anytime!

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.

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.
Tim H. May 2, 2018
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.

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.
debra k. October 16, 2017
