'The Studio' is a large room attached to our home, Old Comfortable. It is a private place approached by its own stairway. It has its own key so it can be locked. It offers an L-shaped space, which includes a sitting area with a view of the ocean, cable TV, a queen-size bed and an eating area. The eating area includes an under-the-counter refrigerator. It is outfitted with dishes and linens. There is no stove or kitchen sink. The bathroom is generous in size with a fiberglass shower. This space is best suited for someone looking for accommodations with more personality than a motel room but short of a full-size house. In the summer a local fish store will steam lobsters for you, which you can bring back to eat in the studio or you can use the outdoor charcoal grill. We used this space while our year-round house was being constructed. It is suitable for one or two people. There is a public beach within walking distance and a public landing for launching a boat/kayak nearby.
Kayaks may be rented in Friendship village just five minutes away. Following a day of being on the salt water, arrangements can be made to wash off your equipment. If your group has more than two people, please inquire about our Guest House across the street.
Well, what can you say when it's all been said? Well, you can say thank you Bill and Lynn for making our stay in Friendship a most enjoyable time.
We are sadly leaving after 4 amazing days here at Old Comfortable. What I had hoped it would offer it did and more. We were able to disconnect from our very busy lives and appreciate the beauty of not only a wonderful (and incredibly clean) home and area but of a very caring hostess, Lynn! Her touches from classic New England décor, toiletry/pantry sundries, gardens and comfy linens made for a haven to relax in very easily. This was followed by suggestions of where to explore from walks, restaurants and even musical events made for a great time. I had briefly mentioned that this was a belated anniversary celebration and she gave us a beautiful card made with her wonderful photos of the local area. The greater Friendship area offers food from funky to fancy and if you are a fan of great food using locally sourced ingredients in imaginative ways then this is the place for you! Summer would be a lovely time to visit but the Fall was even more special for those looking for that little bit of extra down time we all need in our lives. We are already thinking ( or shall I say dreaming) about coming back next year for a whole week. Thank you Lynn!!
My wife and I had a wonderful stay.Clean, comfortable and Lynn and Bill have not skimped on creature comforts.They were just not expected extras that made our stay 5 stars.
We visited again this year because we had such a nice relaxing time last year!
We enjoy the quiet and peaceful setting Old Comfortable offers. It is well worth the drive to get away from the crazy tourist-y spots. The lobster festival is great to visit as well as the many different area light houses and parks. Like being at home away from home!
Thank you again!
Lynn and Bill's home is the perfect get-away! It is not only a beautiful setting, it is also peaceful, serene, and has such comfortable accomodations. These folks are the perfect hosts and made us feel so relaxed and at home. Will definitely be back!
As is always the case, our pleasant, peaceful memories of Old Comfortable and the Martin Point/Hatchett Cove environs remain with us like a favorite film playing back frame by frame in the mind's eye. Bill and Lynn are thoughtful, generous whirling dervishes, who are very amenable to any request that would lend to the further enjoyment and enhancement of your stay. The Siren's Song (if only the ancient mariners had GPS) keeps beckoning us to mid-coast Maine and Old Comfortable where one truly enters a destination right out of the pages of "The Country of the Pointed Firs."
The location was even more amazing than we expected. The owners are great people and very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing. The Studio was very cozy and relaxing. We enjoyed sitting by the water and letting life go by. I would give it Five Stars.
Guests at Old Comfortable never run out of things to do. Within 20 to 40 minutes away, you can find several restaurants, museums, shopping, lighthouses, movies, theaters, concerts (such as the Blues Festival in July), swimming and golf. Also nearby are boat tours and day sails on a windjammer. In August, we have the annual Lobster Festival, the Antique Fair, the Maine Boats and Harbors Show and the Blueberry Fair.
