A Lovely Week in Maine

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is lovely. The deck is huge and comfortable. There is a shower out side by the teak table on the deck so when you return from the beach, you can rinse the sand and salt off. We would sit out side in the sun and dry off after the shower, when we returned from the beach. We also ate breakfast out there every morning. The deck is lovely. At first we had a little trouble locating the path down to beach. It is between two houses at the very end of the road. We felt as though we should not be walking through there, but we were assured by the neighbors that it was the correct way to the beach. We loved the beach and spent hours there eveyday, we brought our own floats and floated around. Our dogs loved it - splashing around, chasing bubbles and waves. We were always the only ones on the beach. The view from the beach was lovely, and we would also watch the lobster fisherman work their traps. There are pretty shells and some beach glass to collect, and lovely rocks also, if you enjoy that sort of thing, which I do. The cottage itself is roomy, bright, airy and so clean. We immediately felt comfortable and at home, although we did not spend much time indoors. We drove down to Osier's dock and picked up breakfast and dinner to eat on the lovely deck back at the cottage. We went into Damariscotta and rented DVDs/movies at Hannaford's to watch at night - 2 movies - 2 nights $1.49, that is so cheap in comparison to where we live. There is a little road side hut on Rt. 1 in Damariscotta called Larson's Lunch Box and it has the best lobster rolls in Maine, that we ever had and we could get our cell phone service there and I could use my laptop and get our wireless internet service as we sat on a picnic table and enjoyed our dinner. Out by the cottage, if you drive on past Osier's and keep going for about 10 minutes, you will wind up in one of the loveliest places in the world and there is a restaurant there on the bay. We drove all around there, snapping pictures. We hated leaving, the week went so quickly. I can recommend this lovely cottage with total enthusiasm and would love to go back - tomorrow and stay there forever.

The cottage was everything we could want. We were very disappointed in not being on the water and having no easy way to it. Access was through a woods alive with mosquitos and the feeling of being in someone else's yard. Most of our vacation was spent in the car looking for other things to do.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately our cottage is not oceanfront or directly on the water and we make every effort to ensure our guests are aware of this. Whilst it is a minutes’ walk, we hope you were able to enjoy the quite tidal beach that we have and explored other parts of Maine.

Fantastic base!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first ever USA trip, we had traveled to South Bristol from New York via Cape cod and arrived mid afternoon, Joe and Heather are real nice and so easy to deal with, they are both so accommodating, we were traveling light and were allowed access to all the family towels and stuff, i thought that was a really sweet gesture, thanks Heather!!
They had made sure the house was ready for us even though we had arrived earlier than expected, heating and lights on.
The house its self is a great place to stay, there were only two of us and we bounced around in there as its so big by UK standards, just wish we could have spent more time in the house as it was so comfy everything we needed was on hand, we wanted for nothing!!( but you can't sight see from a house!!) but it was great to return home to in the evenings, Its also in such a peaceful location and real close to the private beach (sunsets and wine),the house was spotlessly clean and managed but still has that homely lived in character!.

Many thanx folks, would definitley stay again.

Lovely cottage near it all

  • 4 of 5
My husband and two girls and I had a lovely staff at the cottage despite some very unusual warm temperatures. The cottage had everything we needed to be comfortable. We enjoyed the short walk down to the beach which to our delight, we had all to ourselves on several occasions. On a few overcast days, we were close enough to make day trips to Freeport, to the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and into the lovely little town of Damariscotta which had all the provisions one would need.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful time at this cottage in South Bristol. Heather was always very responsive and quick in her communication with me and everything went very smoothly. We thought the cottage was adorable and enjoyed the little touches like flowers on the table and the candles in the living room. The cottage was in a secluded area and my husband found it very relaxing and peaceful for him.The boys loved the bunk beds and took turns in different ones over the course of the week. We did manage to get down to the cove several times and I was able to collect some sea glass. The cottage was a great area to travel to different areas over the course of the week. We did a lot of exploring both north and south of South Bristol. We took a puffin cruise and went to Monhegan Island. The boys loved the swimming hole in the next town. We visited the Pemaquid lighthouse and went to the little beach they have in Pemaquid. We enjoyed seeing the shooting stars at night, the fireflies and the cookouts. On the last day,as we were getting ready to leave, I had problems with my car. I had the opportunity to meet Heather's parents, Linda and Louis. They were charming and lovely and meeting them was one of the favorite parts of my trip. They helped get us on our way and we enjoyed meeting them. We would definitely come again and thank you for everything!!!

Relaxing hideaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot for our little family. A quiet beach close by, all amenities in nearby Damariscotta, great restaurants nearby (our favorite being Muscongus Bay Lobster co.), and friendly neighbors. We loved having our coffee on the enclosed porch in the mornings and discovering the area, which is so quiet and peaceful, even at the height of the summer. The cottage was clean and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners were friendly and the rental process was easy. Our only regret is that we didn't book another week. It just means that we will have to return next year! Thanks for your hospitality Heather and Joe.
