We're a married couple traveling with our daughter (who was running in the Bay of Fundy Marathon) and 6 year old granddaughter. The two bedrooms were perfect - the queen bed in one and two twins in the other. And TWO bathrooms - almost impossible to find.
The property was just as described - an extremely well equipped kitchen (large enough to easily work in) with a small table perfect for setting up a laptop (Wi-Fi is included). There's a dining room for six with a gas fire place and the living room is large with two couches.
The living room and the master bedroom have floor to ceiling sliding doors allowing a fantastic view of a salt water marsh (home to six Canada Geese) and the ocean and rock bound coast in the distance.
The cottage was very clean and everything worked as it should. There were a couple of chilly nights (it is Maine after all) and the central furnace kept us well warmed. There's no A/C but three of the rooms have heavy duty ceiling fans if needed.
There's a huge deck (with lounges and chairs) and a vast lawn area. The edges of the lawn are bordered by native untrimmed grasses, berry bushes and the like which really make you feel you're not hemmed in by neighbors. Which is why you chose this place in the first place.
Karen, the manager, was more than accommodating. Our trip from the South resulted in being bumped off a number of flights so we weren't really sure how we would get there let alone when. She said to just arrive when we could and if it was in the middle of the night she'd leave a light on so we could get in. It put us at ease knowing someone was looking out for us.
Karen also gave us good tips on watching the Marathon as well as shopping, touring and dining tips.
We only ate out once - at Killian's Irish Pub. Fantastic fish chowder and my favorite Shepherd's Pie. The kid had a really scrumptious burger.
We have no qualms recommending Channel View Cottage. It's a very nice property with a very nice rental agent/manager.
Be sure to take your Passport so you can go sightseeing on Campobello Island in New Brunswick. And the Ganong Chocolate Museum in St. Stephen.
