Our beautiful oceanfront guest house comes complete with a fabulous lobster feast each week.

This charming house features pumpkin pine floors, custom cherry kitchen, shaker furniture and amazing views from all rooms. Have a drink out on the new deck or take a nap on the sun porch overlooking the bay. Walk down the winding staircase and take a swim in the cove at high tide or explore tidal pools and the rocky shoreline. Bike across the bridge to Sandy Point Beach on Cousins Island and sink your toes in the sand. We provide Wi-Fi, and cable . The house has an eat-in kitchen w/deck, living room and family room both with cable, DVD & stereo, a sun porch, a large L-shaped master w/queen bed, pull-out sofa & twin plus second bedroom with queen & twin.
Guest Book Comments : 'Thank you for providing such a lovely spot for us to spend a week together. The lobster feast was wonderful--we had to take a rest between courses!! We biked Peak's Island (ferry from Portland, bike shop up road to left-easy rentals) and explored Wolf's Neck State Park (wonderful osprey sightings!!).. The Old Port in Portland is a good destination for shops and restaurants. The Royal River Grillhouse was great too!'

About Joi Kressbach
Lee and I own a seafood shipping company called Maine Lobster Direct, so we love to spoil our guests with a fabulous lobster feast. We'll bring you the freshest Maine lobster right off the boat along with clams, chowders, shrimp--whatever you want.
Guestbook comments from the manager
I wanted to send you a note to tell you again what a wonderful time we had in Maine.
Your cottage is so welcoming and was lovely to come home to after our days out exploring.
As I mentioned, we only ate dinner out one night because it was actually more fun to relax "at home".
Please do keep us in mind if something opens up that is a small cottage on water.
In the meantime we will look forward to enjoying your place again before too long.
