Just as my title says - Home Away From Home. Little House is just that. It is welcoming, warm, comfortable, super clean, well-maintained, well-appointed, and owned by a wonderful person Margaret Perritt. Margaret makes your stay so great that you don't always feel like having to leave it for shopping, sightseeing, or dining out. If the spirit moves you, you feel content just to stay there for the day. Margaret is also just a local phone call away (phone in the cottage) if there are any problems and she is there in a heartbeat if you need her.
This is our 3rd time to LH, but many times to BBH. The area is rich in views beyond your imagination, shops that delight all senses, eateries to tickle the most delicate of palates - and, of course, lobster!!, and just plain Down East experiences. If you find a need to go outside of the Harbor, I would suggest the Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, the Maritime Museum in Bath, and best of all, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse on the Pemiquid peninsula out of Damariscotta. As many times as we have been to BBH, we finally did the Balmy Days II boat ride to Monhegan Island and would do it again.
Little House is perfect for a family of four (5 if one doesn't mind sleeping on the couch - it is very comfortable! We've done it). The kitchen is so well-supplied there is really nothing that you need to bring for that purpose. The dining area is so sunny and bright - perfect for playing games or doing jigsaw puzzles that Margaret has so thoughtfully stashed away for rainy days, and of course meals.
She even has made available hats, binoculars, umbrellas, maps, guides, dog-walking baggies, and much more. She has thought of everything - a fan in each room, too!
The driveway is up a hill, pretty steep, but even I was able to navigate it on foot as a senior citizen. It is so peaceful up there on the hill away from the roar of the traffic on Rte 27.
I cannot wait to get back there again as I have left my heart in BBH and LH!
