We are two active professionals. Failures at retirement, attempting to spend as much time as possible in New Harbor. We purchased Bayberry Cottage in 2000 and renovated and expanded it. When we moved to a year 'round home on the other side of town, we couldn't bear to sell Bayberry - nor would our children let us! When our children all decide to visit us at the same time and fill the house, we go and stay at our beloved Bayberry!

Marilyn and John purchased this cottage in 2000

We discovered New Harbor 40 years ago while on a camping trip to Boothbay. We immediately packed up our gear and moved to a campground in New Harbor. We returned year after year, first camping, then staying at rentals and finally having our own home. After all these years we still marvel at the beauty of New Harbor and still enjoy its fabulous amenities. We keep meeting more and more folks who have had similar experiences. After having explored so much of the Maine coast, we just knew we had stumbled into a very special place - and we were right!

Immense natural beauty, lobsters right off the boat, ever changing harbor activity. Watch the tides change and the eiders, cormorants, great blue herons, and kingfishers going about their activities. Many find it difficult to tear themselves away from the property. Choose from attractions and distractions galore, or just relax on the porch.

Beloved Annual Vacation Cottage

My wife and I, and my sister and brother-in-law have spent a week at Bayberry for each of the last eight summers. We are all educators, and our stays here are always the highlight of our summer vacation.Twenty-five hundred characters is not nearly enough space to describe everything we love about this place. My wife loves to cook, and the open kitchen and dining area allows us to entertain the 11 family members who spend the same week in Pemaquid. Bayberry is always cool and comfortable, with its high ceiling and loft and its very efficient ceiling fan. On especially cool evenings, we enjoy sitting by the fire in the lovely stone fireplace. The screened back porch provides beautiful views of Pemaquid Harbor, and opportunities to spot eider ducks, cormorants, kingfishers, great blue herons, and, if we are particularly lucky, even harbor seals. Both of the bedrooms are cozy and airy, and appointed with beautiful antique furniture. Beds are very comfortable. Although we trade bedrooms each summer, with each couple eagerly anticipating their time in the back bedroom where we wake up to harbor views, we have never been disappointed in the middle bedroom either. Bayberry is amazingly well-cared for and we always find it spotless upon arrival. I don't even mind washing the dishes when I'm here: Window boxes beyond the sink contain flowers that often attract hummingbirds. There is a large, grassy area just steps from the front door that is ideal for playing horseshoes, bocce, or wiffle ball. A very short stroll down the dirt road leads to a boat launching area, and a pier and dock where children can try their luck at catching little crabs. The Colonial Pemaquid restoration and the unmatched beauty of Pemaquid Beach are both about a quarter of a mile away. Many people, especially those with smaller children, enjoy the charms of the equally nearby "Little Beach." Pemaquid Point, with its picturesque lighthouse famously depicted on the reverse of the Maine state quarter, is a short drive or bike ride away. Seafood lovers experience nirvana at such only-in-Maine waterside venues as Shaw's Fish and Lobster Wharf, the Pemaquid Fishermen's Co-op, Muscongus Bay Lobster Co., and the Round Pond Fishermen's Co-op. Groceries are available locally at C.E. Reilly's and Dee's Variety in New Harbor. Some of the best breakfasts we've ever eaten have been served at The Cupboard, which is within easy walking distance of Bayberry. I'm really looking forward to next summer!

We really lucked out!

My husband and I recently spent five days in New Harbor and really “lucked out” with our choice of Bayberry Cottage. As soon as we opened the door we knew this was going to be one fine vacation! Bayberry is cheerful, cozy, and really clean.

There was no need to shop for anything except food. The cottage had everything else. We took walks around the state park, rode our bikes around town and onto the beach, and visited local galleries. One night we bought lobsters right from the Fishermens’ Coop, brought them back to Bayberry to cook them up, and ate them in front of a crackling fire. We ate breakfasts on the porch or on the dock.

We really liked the Damariscotta River Grill restaurant, but were very pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu and great food at the unassuming Salt Bay Café, also in Damariscotta.

Five days wasn’t enough. We’ll be back for more!

My husband & I spent a wonderful week at Bayberry Cottage. We were so impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage and the lovely view of the Harbor. The cottage is located in with a group of other cottages called Heron Cove & lo & behold we caught sight of a heron at low tide. The owner Marilyn stopped by to say hello & was so pleasant. She even baked homemade cookies for us! The cottage is located close to Pemaquid Beach, one of the cleanest beaches we have ever visited. The cost to enter the beach is only 4.00 per adult! Also nearby is the impressive Pemaquid Lighthouse, where the view is breathtaking. Marilyn provided a great visitor activity binder which contained all kinds of interesting places to visit & things to see, so helpful. We ate at the Pemaquid lighthouse for breakfast, blueberry pancakes to die for. We also tried Anchor Inn which has great seafood. our last evening brought our bottle of wine over to Pemaquid co op where we both had the best lobster dinner with another beautiful view of the harbor. New Harbor is the perfect place to visit for those who want a more quiet relaxed non touristy place in Maine. Bayberry cottage is perfect for couples or small families. We both enjoyed our stay very much.

If you are considering a relaxing, mid coast vacation with limitless opportunities for fun, adventure and seafood, Bayberry is for you. From the moment we pulled up to the cottage and opened the door, our family knew we had found the perfect place to unwind and enjoy coastal Maine.

Everything about this cottage, as expressed in other reviews and the posted description, is wonderful. It is extraordinarily clean and flooded with sunlight (the pictures are not deceiving). Our girls (7 & 9) instantly found the unique loft which served as their headquarters for the week.

The screened porch overlooks an active cove filled with lobster boats and served as a tranquil spot for morning coffee, reading and afternoon happy hour.

The owners are an absolute delight to work with and have provided an extensive "to do" book for activities ranging from within walking distance to day trips as well as details regarding the numerous dining options available nearby.

The cottage is situated in an ideal location for kayaking (we rented two tandems from Maine Kayaks less than a mile away) with easy access to the water and the added bonus of being able to leave the kayaks near the friendly dock. The girls were able to catch crabs from the dock and quickly made friends with children visiting cottages close by.

Our days were filled with trips to the Pemaquid Point lighthouse, nearby Colonial Pemaquid, a great beach for kids, a puffin excursion, kayaking, and a recurring sense that this is too good to be true. We are looking forward to expanding our daily quests to nearby Boothbay Harbor, Camden and Rockland on our next visit.

The cottage has a great kitchen, working fireplace, large bathroom, and very comfortable beds. The table in the family room is perfect for puzzles and the decor throughout is tastefully maintained. Everything you could possibly need has been provided, including free Wi-fi access, a DVD player and a nice sound system.

Finally, we were in lobster heaven! There are unlimted options for getting your seafood fix. Do not miss Shaw's or the lobster co-op directly accross the cove.

Bottom line: you should stay at Bayberry (so long as you don't steal my week!!)

We enjoyed our stay at the bayberry cottage as we know area well and the many activities available as tennis,hiking and kayaking. The cottage was very clean and had been renovated quite tastefully in keeping with the old tradition. The description of the property was very accurate and the location was quiet and peaceful with a charming view from the screened porch. We had prompt attention to assist us in connecting the internet and everything was well described in the folders in the cottage. We did some day trips to Damariscotta and Boothbay for shopping,restaurants and kayaking. The botanical gardens at Boothbay were fantastic-all in all a great holiday.
