Guestbook comments from the owner

Adorable cottage with Stunning Views:

My husband and I visited the cottage in the off-season and kind of expected to be cooped up because it would be too cold to venture outside. But on sunny days, the large yard is very welcoming and you can choose various sides of the house to 'sun' yourself depending on whether you like a breeze or not. Too hot -- go to the breezy side. A little cold? Go to the sunny non-breezy side.



On rainy days, the expansive view of harbor was a sight to behold. I could have sat at the dining table or the little sun porch all day watching the boats and the skies and the clouds. It was exquisite. One day I wound up taking the same picture on a dozen different occasions because the sunlight kept changing -- one view becamea rpettier than the next and it was hard to just sit there watching it. I wanted to take it all in :)



I recommend this cottage for romantic get aways and most definitely for people with kids (just make sure you watch the little ones because you ARE on water). It's also a great place for a family reunion. There are two dwellings on the property which gives family members just enuf togetherness and separateness to stay happy

A Wonderful Maine Experience!

  • 5 of 5
This amazing house on Casco Bay was the perfect location for us (my partner and I). It's our first time in Maine and we couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy the magnificent coastal beauty. This house literally sits right at the edge of the bay with a 180 degree view of glistening water. Boats dock in a distance where lobster men pull up their catch. It's as picturesque as one would expect to see in a Maine postcard!

We spent a week here in the beginning of May, and the weather wasn't yet ideal to do many outdoor activities. When it wasn't raining we barbecued outside and tried our luck fishing right off the dock. We napped on the hammock under two small trees while taking in the fresh ocean breeze.Sitting out on the deck we watched the loons play and the lobster men at work. When it rained we stayed inside and played board games or just read books at the dining table where the main attraction is the view of Casco-- Enjoying a lobster dinner here at dusk beats any fine dining restaurant anytime, anywhere!

My partner and I loved the privacy that came with this house. There were neighboring houses perhaps 50 yards on either side. They might have been vacation rentals as well, but at this early in the season no one was around but us. Privacy was one of the main(e) thing we were looking for and we got plenty of it!

Our host, Larry, was extremely helpful. He provided us with directions, info on grocers and places to get basic needs, info on where to eat and points of interest. In the house we found many, many brochures on attractions in the entire state of Maine. Our mobile phone service had very poor receptions at this house, but there was internet and Larry was always on standby via email to answer any inquiries we might have had. He also had housekeepers that would come around if we needed them.

We spent a few days exploring neighboring towns. Brunswick and Bar Harbor were quaint and lovely. Freeport and Portland were bustling yet enjoyable. One of the highlights of our trip was hiking on Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert Island. The views up there were nothing short of majestic--they took our breath away!

We had the pleasure of talking to some locals at Erica's Lobster Pound just down the street. They were some of the nicest people we have ever met. This lobster pound, by the way, had the best prices and best lobsters around.

Overall, this house is highly recommended for those looking to take what everything Maine has to offer.

A Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5
Our month here was so perfect, in spite of the cool, rainy weather. The cottage was very comfortable, a real Maine experience, the views spectacular - sitting on the deck wrapped in a robe with coffee in hand early in the foggy morning watching the lobstermen go out, not a sound but their motors & the water lapping at the shore - pure peace! The cottage is in a quiet location, but near to an excellent marina restaurant, as well as to seafood shops which we got to know very well. The wood stove was perfect for those chilly evenings and we found the cottage tight & cozy on rainy days. We lacked for nothing and found it easy to get every where, for groceries or sightseeing. And thanks to a reliable computer connection, my husband was able to conduct a distance-learning web course easily throughout our stay. In a word, perfect - and we plan on visiting again. Our dog loved it too!

Autumn in So Harpswell ME

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely home! We had such a relaxing and fun time in Me. This house is so compfy and the viewS are spectacular all day long! The home is furnished in typical Maine relaxing style and we needed the heater and it worked fine. We took beautiful walks in the area and made several day trips to Camden, Wiscassette and Freeport. A great location and full equipped kitchen and it's hard coming home!
