Guestbook comments from the owner
The Captains Cottage
Our extended family, ranging from age 6 to 72, has found the Captains Cottage to be the perfect Maine getaway. It is a large beautifully appointed cottage and yet casual enough to completely relax. We love the front lawn for games, the lightly screened deck, and the open deck. Both decks have a classic Maine water view. There is room to read by yourself, play pool or cards downstairs or just sit on a couch and look at the view. We love to cook and the well equipped kitchen with an island is always busy. Last, but not least, the dining room has a long table that will hold everyone for meals, including lobster that can be delivered to the dock on the water.
