Vacation in Port Clyde
Submitted: September 24, 2012
Stayed: September 2012
The cottage is nicely appointed, spacious and comfortable. Well-stocked with linens, towels and paper products so really all anyone has to bring would be shorts, tee-shirts, flip-flops and, of course, food and beverage. The owners are very personable and helpful and unless you need them, you won't see or hear from them. The neighbors are friendly and welcoming but otherwise seen but not heard.
Port Clyde is the quintessential New England fishing town and Horse Point Road is reasonably quiet, especially in the evening and its location provides for a delightful 10 minute walk to the waterfront, general store, ice cream shop, restaurant and boat line. The locals are friendly and informative and will be happy to get you engaged in the local scene. For sure, you'll have to have breakfast at the General Store, lunch at the Happy Clam, and dinner at the Harpoon Restaurant. If visiting Monhegan Island is on your "bucket list" be sure and take the boat ride over; just check with the crew on weather and wave action. It's about an eleven mile ride so you'll want it to be as smooth as possible.
Route 1, Thomaston and Rockland are less than 30 minutes away with Camden and Belfast just a short drive up the coast.
All-in-all a most pleasant place for a quiet vacation. Time and money well-spent.
Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Capt. D.W. Wilson cottage again and that you got a chance to enjoy the local flavor of Port Clyde as well! We hope to see you again next summer!
