Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved your cozy cottage. The snug bed upstairs kept us quite warm with all the blankets, and although Bob and I had to bend over a bit (Bob is 6 ft. tall), we managed just fine. Thanks for letting us come in so late in the season. The wood stove kept us very warm. And we enjoyed Tenants Harbor immensely. It was so quiet and serence, and the harbor was lovely this time of year. What skys! We enjoyed the little Baptist Church on Sunday, and we loved eating lunch at the Port Clyde general store. Our time went too fast.

KANE COTTAGE EXPERIENCES SINCE 1988

  • 5 of 5
Location, Location, Location!

Starting in summer 1988, we have been staying at the Kane Cottage in Tenants harbor every few years. Why? The quiet and convenient location a scenic, short walk from the village center. The rustic appearance is deceiving since everything is there, including a well-stocked kitchen with pots, pans and utensils for Maine breakfasts and dinners on the front porch or back deck. Fresh fish steaks and filets from the town dock can be grilled on the Weber grill and enjoyed in a pleasant setting.

Easy access to nearby places such as Port Clyde, Sprucehead, Thomaston, Rockland and Camden provide pleasant daytime outings. The Maine state ferry provides a 2 hour bay crossing to Vinelhaven Island, in time for a blueberry muffin and a picnic lunch, with an afternoon return. Day sailing schooners sail from Camden for a unique experience to many. Shops in Rockland and Camden leave the mall chain store mentality for a unique personal shopping experience. Museum visits to the Farnsworth Art Museum (Rockland) or to Cushing to view Andrew and James Wyeth art and settings for some of the scenes.

For the more adventurous, a daytrip to Monhegan Island form Port Clyde offers some visually impressive scenery and a taste unique birding experiences in addition to the boat trip. Meanwhile, the few rainy days make a trip to Freeport's L.L. Bean main store and outlet shopping as well as Wiscasset or historic Bath offer another unique day trip.

For those who just want to hang out, take leisurely walks or read, Tenant's Harbor's town library provide recent books, classics AND Internet service for the occasional "lazy days of summer" we all treasure. A public beach near Port Clyde has large rocks, a sandy beach (at low tide) and beautiful views and free parking for an afternoon beach outing. Many weekends are opportunities to attend air shows featuring antique aircraft flying demonstrations along with antique auto meets and machinery demonstrations.

Evening dining out can be experienced at local inns such as the East Wind Inn in Tenants Harbor, the Craignair Inn at Clark Island or any number of Rockland or Camden locations. There are some other places in Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor that offer multi-course seafood, steak, chicken and pasta dinners. Try the town dock for fish and lobster and enjoy your meal while on the deck overlooking the harbor.

So why wait any longer? The only decision is whether one week is enough or two weeks is better. One can spend several summer vacations here, returning to old favorites as well as discover new things of interest.

Midcoast Maine and Tenants harbor are ideal destinations for couples and families who want a true Maine experience. The Kane Cottage is very user-friendly, inexpensive and a great place to return to as we have done over a 20 year period.
Try it and I think you will agree. You get what you see.

Best wishes,

A satisfied customer and return visitor looking forward to our next visit!

A TRUE MAINE EXPERIENCE!

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely loved our week in this cottage! We relish the past so we loved this quaint vintage cottage with all it's charm! Since it was chilly while we were there, we especially enjoyed the iron stove, it made the cottage so cozy. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was well equipped. We did bump our heads upstairs the first couple of days, and the stair/ladder was also a challenge, but we managed. Those challenges might need to be addressed a little more clearly in your overview of the cottage.
Overall, we loved our stay and the location surrounded by the beautiful woods, was probably one of our favorite features of the cottage. The little village is simply wonderful and we enjoyed some great meals at the local restaurants. The location made it so easy to run out for fresh lobster to cook for dinner, which we did several nights! Thanks for a great vacation week!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We're so pleased by how much you enjoyed our cottage and Tenants Harbor. Your response to the cottage about its simplicity and the location is very similar to ours. We enjoy our walks into the village and the restaurants there, with a choice of two on the water, Cod End and the Eastwind Inn's restaurant and pub. The propane, fireplace-like cast iron stove does comes in handy, especially off-season when it can be chilly at night and sometimes during the day. With regard to the ceiling in the bedrooms, if you're not concentrating, you can bump your head. My husband is much taller than I am and has been known to bump his head once or twice at the beginning of our stay, forgetting that the ridge-line of 6 ft., 6 in. tapers. I'll review the introductory text to see how I might modify that. Thank you for the suggestion.

TENANTS HARBOR COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had lived in the mid-coast area some 30 years ago, so we were familiar with the area. We hadn't been back for a visit in 14 years, so we were looking for a cozy home base in which to explore all our favorite places, discover some new ones, and catch up with some old friends. The cottage fit all our needs and wants wonderfully! It was quiet, simple, and very cozy - exactly what we had hoped for. It was perfect! We enjoyed relaxing in the enclosed screen porch (even in the rain) and had all our breakfasts and several of our dinners out there. There were no surprises - it was exactly as described, and Suzy and Joe were very warm and helpful. We look forward to returning for another stay there, hopefully in the not too distant future. We really enjoyed our stay there!

This cottage has a lovely private location with a view of the water in a quiet neighborhood. We found it immaculate and the owners very helpful. Would not hesitate to go back.
I would prefer a gas grill vs. charcoal and the stairs are quite steep and were not able to get our suitcases upstairs, but the beds were comfortable and we spent most of our time downstairs, in the screened in porch or on the front deck which has a lovely view. Very relaxing!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the cottage and location and would not hesitate to return. You will be most welcome!

With regard to the grill, I wonder if you saw the new Webber "chimney" that enables you to have the charcoal ready in 15 or 20 minutes using newspaper and a match - without the use of charcoal fluid. It is in the boat house just as you enter. I'll add a note to our renters' booklet to make sure others are aware of it.

I hope that you unpacked and were then able to tuck your suitcases away upstairs and that you used the two bureaus and the clothes poles, hangers, and hooks upstairs.

So glad you enjoyed the new screened in porch. We look forward to your return.

HAD A GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great cottage in a wonderful area (Tenants Harbor). Bring a bike.....I biked all around Tenants Harbor. Make sure you go to the Tenants Harbor General Store (great morning coffee). The cottage is rustic, but well appointed. Very clean. My only caveat is that the stairs to the second story are quite steep and somewhat narrow. The owners recently added a new back screened-in porch which is great for eating meals. There is much to do in the area: many art galleries and restaurants (be sure to see a movie at the "old-timey" Strand theater in Rockland). The owners, Suzy and Joe, are very helpful without being intrusive. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for your stay at the cottage. We're very happy that the cottage and the area worked out well for you and that you enjoyed the new screened-in porch. We're looking forward to using it ourselves!

I'm glad that you got to the Strand Theater. The Camden Opera House and the Rockport Opera house are two other excellent venues, which have also been beautifully restored.

We are pleased that you'd like to return. We look forward to that.

AS CHARMING AS THE PICTURE LOOKS

  • 4 of 5
Tenants Harbor and this cottage provided the perfect mix of cool nights, peace and quiet and just-close-enough harbor view for this New Yorker in desperate need of a vacation. I had never been to Maine before and it was a perfect introduction.

Cabin is rustic but has all the comforts you need---for me though, I was so looking to unplug, I didn't even realize the TV was actually used for television and not just DVD viewing until the second day. So it's rustic-looking but still has wifi and even a cute heater that's a faux fire.

Suzy couldn't be a better host--she sends you a beautiful map of the area with great itineraries. Don't miss Monhegan Island off of Port Clyde. A-MAINE-zing.
And if you get into Rockland, Primo Restuarant is a not to miss. They have their own garden they cook from every day. They even raise their own bees!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Charice. It was a pleasure to correspond with you and talk with you. Your excitement about traveling to Maine was palpable, and we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage and sampled some of the great things that Maine has to offer. I hope this is the first of many trips to Maine and that you got out your paints to capture some of the scenes.
