We had an excellent family vacation at this cottage. Our children, ages 4 and 6, spent hours and hours each day playing on the beach just steps from the back porch. Some days, we rowed out in the rowboat to explore the cove; other days, we collected seashells and found hermit crabs in the tide pools. It was also great to have a full playground and a large sandy beach so close. The cottage itself was simple and traditional, very clean, with picturesque water views of the Maine coast. The location is convenient: accessible from New York City, with full supermarkets in town and many options for restaurants and activities in the area. One day we took an excursion to give our children their first horseback riding lessons. The owner was always extremely helpful and made sure everything about our stay was smooth.
