My husband and I live in Falmouth Maine. This is 45 minutes away from Harpswell. We have always dreamed of having a cottage on the water. We took the plunge and purchased in beautiful Harpswell 5 yrs ago. We love working on the cottage and making the cottage more charming each year. Renting out the cottage has been an enjoyable experience. We develop a nice relationship with every renter. We love how renters appreciate the cottage and natural beauty of Harpswell

Maryann Waterman purchased this cottage in 2007

We appreciate good value and believe we offer a relaxing, affordable vacation home. As other renters have noticed, we supply all the comforts of home. We clean the cottage ourselves. This keeps the cottage affordable. It also allows us to visit Harpswell on a regular basis.

Our cottage is just down the street from the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant. The walk there is beautiful. There is a library and a playground with wonderful equipment within walking distance of the cottage. You can kayak from our property in kayaks that we provide.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is great - we loved the location. It was very quiet and relaxing. Clean and full of anything you would need. Beautiful ocean view and easy to kayak out the door (kayaks provided). Would highly recommend it and we'd definitely go back. The seafood restaurant at the end of the street was amazing.

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great time relaxing at this property. It is situated quite nicely near the end of the Harpswell point where seafood can be purchased at Erica's (live lobster to bring home or steamed to eat at the picnic tables, fried clams, etc) or Dolphin Marina (sit-down, nicer place). This meant we had to do very little traveling and were free to just hang around. When you DO need some variety or groceries, Brunswick is only about a 25 minute drive and both Freeport and Portland are also close enough to check out without making it an all-day affair. I've vacationed a few times on Georgetown Island (Two points to the Northeast) and found Harpswell to be much more conveniently located.

The property was clean and had everything we needed stocked (The lobster pot saw use pretty much every day). Wifi worked perfectly and the landline provided was great for emergencies since our cell service was sketchy (Verizon - maybe something else is better there).

For most of our stay our party consisted of me and my wife with two dogs but we were joined one evening by three friends who drove up from Boston. Even with all of us, it was cozy but not uncomfortable in the least. I liked the layout of the house that kept the master bedroom as separate as possible in such a compact space.

The property itself was very nice. Flowers everywhere! Very cute! My only warning to other vacationers may be to curb your expectation on access to the water. It's there and wonderful to look at. There are stairs that lead down to the water but it is not easily navigated once down there (deep mud, sharp reeds, etc). Per the homeowner instructions, we disposed of the lobster bodies in the water (probably close to 50 by the end of the week) and the daily chore of trecking down there was my least-favorite part of vacation. My wife and our other guests abandoned their adventuring plans and retreated once reaching the bottom of the steps. It's possible (likely) that we are all just pansies though :-)

The homeowner was friendly and great to work with. Always fast responses. We would definitely recommend and/or vacation here again.

Comfortable Harpswell cottage

  • 5 of 5
Since we have spent time in this area before, we were looking for a "comfortable" house where we could relax. This house was definitely that. This cottage is clean, spacious and has everything you need. We enjoyed relaxing time on the deck and exploring the different towns along the peninsulas. The house is very well stocked, wireless internet if you feel the need to catch up with what's going on, books to read for the rainy days and places to eat nearby or in Brunswick which is a short ride away. Visit the Vegetable Garden for the best (and reasonably priced) cookies and pastries. Ditto for the Wild Oats Bakery which has great take out food to bring back and eat at the cottage when you don't feel like cooking. We enjoyed the Botanical Gardens and exploring Boothbay Harbor. Having rented several homes in Maine over the last 10 years, this home really had everything you need to enjoy your time in Maine. Maryann was always helpful and we would rent the house again if we were vacationing in that area again.

. Best spot in five Maine summers

  • 5 of 5
Clean, well appointed 2 bedroom house (not a rough cottage).Loads of games, books and a great location. Beautiful and effective privacy plantings. Great dog walking trails behind Harpswell Town Hall. Veggie Corner is great multi-item store. Very restful waterside location after Labor Day. Some small traffic before L.D., as there are good food places at end of peninsula: a lobster shack and a fine restaurant. Owners most agreeable, pleasant to work with. Of five different Maine summer locations this is the prime one. Would happily return!

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was exactly like the pics. Very comfortable and clean. The view of the cove off the back deck was serene. The owners have stocked the cottage with everything from basic toiletries to books, games and local Maine attractions and eatries. All you need to bring is yourself and food. Can't wait to return next year.
