A charming classic summer cottage on the rocky shores of Martin Point in Friendship, Maine. Take the steps down to a private shoreline, ideal for mooring your boat or launching a kayak. A sandy beach is a two minute walk right around the corner. Ideal for a family of four vacation. One bedroom has a full-sized bed for a couple with single beds in each of the other two bedrooms. Bathroom, living room and full kitchen downstairs, fireplace, brand new Rinnai heater, deck. Only five minutes to the town of Friendship and half an hour to Rockland/Rockport/Camden area where amenities abound.
Muscongus Bay offers some of the best kayaking and boating on the Maine coast, practically off the front deck! Hike through the woods, fish off the shoreline or just relax on the deck, nestled among the pines.
The Charm of the Cottage: This rental cottage has all the classic charm of a Maine summer home. My own family rented this space for many years before acquiring the property in the late 1940's. I was fortunate to spend many happy summers there as a youth, thanks to my grandparents smart move. The fondness I felt from those memories was enough to make me move to Maine and raise my own family nearby. The memories that you will share by staying here will be those of pine and balsam, woodsmoke, crisp, clean sheets and salty ocean air, making it a place you'll want to come back to time and again.
Thanks for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you
The midcoast region of Maine is truly 'Vacationland' and your cottage is right in the middle of it all! Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are less than two scenic hour's drive to the north. Closer still are the beautiful seaside towns of Camden, Rockport, Rockland, Belfast, Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor. You'll find more restaurants, galleries, museums, antiques and shopping opportunities than you could partake of during an entire summer's stay. If you'd rather just relax and get away from it all, the cottage is the perfect place to do just that. It's quietly nestled in the woods on the shoreline. Stay for a few weeks or stay for the summer. It's a place you'll never forget!!
Other Activities: Kayaking: Muscongus Bay is one of the best kayaking locations on the coast of Maine. Bring your own or rent a kayak in the town of Friendship just two miles away. Easy access for launching your kayak from many locations. Lots of islands, coves and inlets all around to explore.
Golf: There are many golf courses nearby in Rockland, Rockport, Damariscotta and Camden. Play golf on the ocean at the Samoset Resort in Rockport.
