Port Clyde Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Cedar-shingled cottage on over an acre of land across a small country road from sandy beach on the Atlantic - great for kids. Sweeping views to the south out to the open Atlantic. Beach only 150 feet away from the front porch with hammock, deck chairs and Atlantic views. 15 minute walk into Port Clyde's restaurants and galleries (less than a mile).
Cottage is new (built in 2000). Interior is light, crafted from wood throughout. Great room with sea views. Well-equipped kitchen and first-floor bedroom with Queen bed and full bath. Up the carpeted stairway to master suite (King-size bed) with luxury bath with tiled shower, and computer nook with broadband internet access.
Up a few steps to the sea view cupola/study. Good sleeping on futon (double) for anyone who wants to be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves. Note: no door on cupola, therefore, not an enclosed room.
Included is a separate 14x20 rustic bunkhouse with a sea view, a cheery wood stove and twin beds.

My husband and I live in Southern Maine with our two daughters. We love living in Maine and while our work
keeps us closer to Portland our hearts are in Port Clyde.
Tom grew up vacationing on the St. George peninsula.
I first found Port Clyde as a TV reporter covering fishing stories. When my career took me to other parts of the country I always knew I would end up back in Maine and I even said on air that 'there was a little piece of property in Port Clyde with my name on it!' We found that special place in Drift Inn Cottage. We've been renters for years and feel very lucky to now be owners of this lovely house.
There is something so decadent about being able to
take your morning cup of coffee and walk just a few steps to a sandy beach to watch the sunrise over the ocean.
So many times over the years people on the beach would watch us walk back to the house and say how lucky we were to be staying in that house. We certainly feel lucky.
