Overview

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 ocean - 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, galleries (less than a mile) and an ice cream shop.

Drift Inn Cottage was built in 2000. The 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.

About Marnie Dean

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.

Marnie Dean purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Marnie Dean chose 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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Lovely, private cottage in tranquil setting

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the cottage. It had a great floor plan offering communal and private space and sits on a wooded lot that is steps from the ocean. We spent a few days sea kayaking, each time launching from the beach in front of the house. The kayaking was great. In normal weather conditions, the surf was very manageable. Particularly in mid-October, this house is in a quiet area with limited restaurants/stores, etc., but that suited us just fine.

Great place. great time.

  • 5 of 5

The Drift Inn Cottage met and exceeded our expectations. Drift Inn beach is an absolute jewel with its constantly changing tides and weather and the house and grounds are beautiful. The pictures are nice, but the views and accommodations once you arrive are better than you could've imagined. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting interesting and friendly beachgoers; walking to the Marshall Pt. Lighthouse and hanging out at the Port Clyde general store and the entire waterfront area in general. I find Port Clyde to be incredibly charming and picturesque. We had hoped to travel out to Camden and Rockland etc., but everything we really wanted or needed was right at our front porch so we were more than content to enjoy the wonderful convenience of our very own beach.

This place is gorgeous, comfortable, well designed and fun. The place sells itself.

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly

Perfect Vacation Cottage...

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a long weekend in this charming vacation cottage and it was absolutely perfect! It is simply beautiful inside and out as well as immaculate and fully equipped with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. The beach is just a few steps away and we spent much of our time sitting on the inviting and well furnished porch enjoying the ocean view. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for the ideal vacation spot....you will not be disappointed! Gail and Bob Ruberti

Great Coastal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful unique cottage and location. From the moment you step out of the car into the beautiful gardens, you will fall in love with the location. It is a magical feeling. We enjoyed the easy access to the ocean, which was great for kayaking. The light house is a short distance from home, as is the port. The home is comfortable, clean, and charming. We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning.

Amazing time at the Sandy Beach-Drift Inn Cottage

  • 5 of 5

August of 2013 was our second stay at this enchanting cottage.

The cottage, the grounds, the amazing views of the ocean and steps to the sandy beach made for a perfect vacation for us. The cottage is beautifully decorated, comfortable and spacious, both inside and out. Simply perfect...can't wait to go back in 2014!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Setting was beautiful, both property itself and one of the rare beaches in the area directly across small access road. Great views of sea from house and property. Furnishings in the house, including the owner/artist's works, were also a wonderful addition. Owner was very easy to work with to make arrangements. Area was exactly what we were looking for. A relatively quiet, non-touristy area that still had a few shops/restaurants nearby. Also good launching point to nearby points of interest --- Rockland (about 20-25 min), Camden (1 hour), Boothbay Harbor (a bit over an hour). Definitely would stay there again if we're lucky enough to make it back.

Port Clyde is a picturesque fishing and lobstering village at the southern tip of the St. George Peninsula. The village has art galleries, two restaurants, and a lobster co-op where you can buy fresh lobster directly from the fishermen. The village has the remote quality of an island, with the convenience of being able to drive to active towns like Rockland (15 miles) and Camden (20 miles) where there are shops, museums, movies, and many restaurants. You can also take the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island, a haven for artists and hikers Monhegan is a great day trip. Marshall Point Lighthouse is about a mile walk from the cottage. This lighthouse was featured in the movie 'Forrest Gump' and is a must see stop during your stay.

The best burger in Maine is a short drive away at the Owl's Head General Store--try the 7 napkin burger!
