PEACEFUL GETAWAY, CHARMING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully relaxing long weekend at Little Bohemia. From the moment we stepped through the door, we felt immediately at home.

Seth and Greg have maintained a charming, rustic feel to the property which is made all the sweeter by modern touches including a beautifully renovated bathroom, luxurious linens and a cozy electric wood stove. The cottage was clean as a whistle and equipped with all of the basic kitchen tools needed for delightful meals in. The screened-in porch was the perfect place to enjoy breakfast overlooking the sweeping, dewy lawn and later, the place to reunite for evening cocktails. On a particularly dank day, the wood stove and book/game library kept us happily occupied.

The cottage is perfectly located for walking/running along the shore road, taking exploratory day trips along the coast and a myriad other seasonal activities that Maine has to offer.

Although we did not bring a dog, we loved that Little Bohemia is a dog friendly place. Seth and Greg were exceptionally accommodating and ensured we had a comfortable stay. We will surely return.

SLICE OF HEAVEN - BEST COTTAGE EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Little Bohemia is the PERFECT cottage to rent for a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Walking in the cottage, we fell instantly and madly in love with the place. The cottage owners, Seth and Greg, outfitted this jewel box of a cottage with crisp linens, comfortable beds, exquisite furnishings, fluffy bath towels, and dreamy lace curtains billowing in the cool Maine summer breeze. Our dogs fell in love with the place, too, thanks to Seth and Greg's pet-friendly rental policy. Dog owners, this cottage is a one-in-a-million gem.... just 15 minutes from a HUGE fenced dog park in Belfast, plus there's no shortage of spots to walk your dogs near the cottage. And for non-dog owners looking for a great cottage, don't worry - Seth and Greg ask renters with dogs to cover the furniture before allowing their pups on the sofa, so the furnishings in the hours remain clean and free of dog hair.

Little Bohemia is breathtakingly adorable and makes visitors feel like treasured friends coming to stay a bit, rather than "renters" paying money for a bed to sleep in. We highly recommend Little Bohemia to anyone looking to kick back, relax, and have an unforgettable experience in mid-coast Maine. We'll definitely be coming back, year after year!!

Owner's Response: Kim and Kathy were the perfect renters. I only wish I had met them during their stay at Little Bohemia. Thank you both for your incredible courteousness with regards to treating Little Bohemia like your own home. You are welcome any time!

A BAYSIDE RETREAT IN ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE!

  • 5 of 5
The 4 of us were so lucky to have found this wonderful cottage! The amenities are outstanding and the owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Located in a charming Bayside community, we traveled to the lovely surrounding towns of Belfast, Camden/Rockport, and Bar Harbor, to return to relaxation, dinners, and conversation on the screened porch. Rooms are tastefully appointed and the kitchen is well equipped. If or when you prefer not to cook, Belfast boasts some great restaurants and pubs, 3 Tides for happy hour and dinner, and Dudley's for breakfast were our favorites! Chilly nights are made cozy by the light and warmth of the decorative gas stove in the family room. Highly recommend! Thanks Seth!

COZY, RESTFUL, RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Four of us comfortably shared Little Bohemia, with enough privacy for both couples. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen and cottage-cozy decor. Ample towels and beach towels were a nice plus. Games and novels were thoughtfully there for adults and children in the event of a rainy day. Flowers in the bathroom welcomed us. A breezy, screened porch set the scene for dining and relaxing. This was the perfect Maine experience. Seth and Greg are considerate hosts and we'd definitely recommend Little Bohemia.

PERFECT PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Lovely cottage, lovely spot! We especially enjoyed the large screened porch, a rare treat in Bayside. The porch (with a nice large round table) easily accommodated dinner for 8. We also appreciated the owner allowing our "grand-doggie" to come visit for a few nights-- not many cottages in Bayside allow dogs anymore. The cottage feels more like a home, and the lawn and gardens provided a nice, serene setting that we thoroughly enjoyed. We have been coming to Bayside for about 15 years and have stayed at many cottages and this one might just be our favorite even though it is not on the water. Highly recommended!

CHARACTERFUL PERFECTLY LOCATED COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my husband and two small children and we thought it was an excellent spot. Bayside is a perfect location in a friendly, safe area with some good grassy play areas for children and some great views. Having never been to Maine before we weren't sure what to expect. It turns out that this cottage is cosier and far nicer than many others we might have rented so we felt very lucky. Seth provided superb customer service and was an excellent communicator. The cottage was in very good order with a very well stocked kitchen in terms of appliances etc and very welcoming and attractively decorated. It's not ideal if you have a child who is just learning to walk as the stairs may be tricky - I would thoroughly recommend Little Bohemia.

Notes:
I have just purchased Little Bohemia and am working to update the cottage and provide my guests with the ultimate relaxing vacation. This beautiful Arts and Crafts Cottage is very much a cottage in a family oriented cottage community. Lots of books and a TV with DVD but no cable. There are lots of woods and lawns for the kids to explore and the beach only 300 feet away with access from a public park. The house is perfect for one or two couples or a small family. Lots of privacy but also lots of together spaces. Make the most of this relaxing and sun filled cottage.
