I live in the West End of Portland, but spend as much time as allows in Friendship or The County. Formerly in the hospitality industry, I own a collection of properties in Maine, and strive to provide comforting restful spaces for short or long term.

Donna Roggenthien purchased this cottage in 1997

I fell in love with Friendship the first time I visited and was delighted when this property came o the market. This cottage is unique in that it is very private, is located on a wooded 2 acre parcel, but also has ocean frontage.

This my personal cottage that I rent out for about 10 weeks a year.

You will feel like a guest in someones home rather than a rental property. There are beautiful gardens and quiet meditation areas. This is a magical place, quite whimsical and with personal touches all around.

great escape

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place. Our party had 2 couples and a six year old and there was enough room for everyone to be comfortable.
Beautifully decorated, very cozy and relaxing. Leave your stress at the driveway. Also fully stocked with anything you might need. It was more like staying at someone's home than a rental unit.
The only problem was leaving. Really wanted to stay longer. A week was not enough.

We discovered Maine from this perfect house. While
there, the only dilemma is choosing a favorite spot to
take in the exquisite water views and incomparable
sunsets. We were partial to sitting on the end of the
new dock and waiting for the stars to come out.

What an inviting introduction to Maine this cottage
offered us. It was relaxing, comfortable and very
homey. We loved the panoramic view from the
dining room table or deck. It was perfect for
sipping a beverage and daydreaming while
watching the lobster boats bringing in their catch.
We enjoyed the North Atlantic Blues festival in
Rockland. We loved the Pemaquid area and
watching the tide come in at the lighthouse, and
shopping and exploring quaint little Maine villages,
especially Damariscotta. The cottage is private,
surrounded by trees and natural gardens. We
enjoyed long daily walks and discovered paths by
day and meadows of fireflies by night. It was truly
an amazing experience! We are already looking
foreward to our next holiday at this great
oceanfront cottage.

This location is outstanding, and the surrounding area is beautiful -- full of things to do! The cottage is nestled in the trees on a hillside that offers a spectacular place to drink your morning coffee and watch the lobstermen collect their daily haul.
