My husband and I had the best time and the ocean views were unbeatable. We were vacationing close to family, but wanted our privacy. It was perfect for entertaining our old friends who live in the area. I was concerned with the other reviews and after leasing this property for a week thought they were too abrupt. We were close to the road, but we had the ammenties and views we will never forget and the size was perfect for us. If your looking for a get-away I recommend this cottage. We went to the Freeport outlets, about 25 minutes away, ate in the Old Port of Portland, had lobster, sat with ocean views while we ate and enjoyed the musuem, about 5 minutes from where we were staying. We were concerned about the snowfall and when we awoke we had already been plowed out by the owner. It was a clean, well-maintained ocean front cottage and I recommend it to anyone.
