Guest Book Comments: 'Thanks for all the little extras that made daily living easy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your beautiful garden was a special treat. Our girls really enjoyed your selection of Maine childrens' books.' [MD] ~~~ 'From the moment we entered the door of your lovely Garden Cottage, we knew we had made the right choice. We enjoyed every moment here, because there were books, puzzles, and games for the few rainy days and your lovely garden and deck for sunny days. The fresh clean rooms and appliances, cook wear, and dishes met our every need (even used the cookbooks), and the egg-beater gook us back to our childhood. We enjoyed the decor: the ships models, carvings, and paintings. Ideal location for walking, touring, and shopping. We love the harbor, the library, and most of all the beautiful blue sky and your friendly hospitality. Thanks heaps!' [VA]

We moved to this beautiful spot 24 years ago and have spent all the time since developing its gardens and landscape for beauty and enjoyment. We live next door to the cottage, and this is our only vacation rental. We think of all visitors as our special guests.

David and Paula Blanchard purchased this cottage in 1989

Our place, while in-town, is uniquely bordered by little used property including a large woodland and meadow. It is so quiet and uncrowded yet so still so close to everything in town and harbor.

Perfect for two couples to share.
