CHARMING MAINE COTTAGE OVERLOOKING ISLESBORO ISLAND; CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

Northport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Amenities: Water views from virtually every room (3 bedrooms), Full bathroom

Charming Maine cottage on a bluff overlooking the Penobscot bay and Islesboro

Our cottage is situated in the charming and historic Town of Temple Heights.

Temple Heights is located on a tiny bluff directly overlooking Penobscot Bay and Isleboro island. We have seaside access and a pebble beach located across the road. There are awesome views of Islesboro and the bay from many of the cottages rooms.

You'll be witness to spectacular morning sunrises and incredible evening skies. Let the sound of the ocean put you to sleep. Enjoy the local lobstermen tend to their traps. Take the ferry (7 minute drive) over to Islesboro beaches for a picnic. Golf at the nearby golf course. Take a walk to nearby coves. This cottage is an ideal place to slow down and relax.

We are located between Belfast and Camden, and just two minutes from Route 1. You can enjoy day sailing on a windjammer or a real lobster boat. You may want to spend the day shopping and dining in historic Camden or visit the many attractions in the area. A short 1 ½ hour drive to Acadia National Park

Parking at cottage: Parking in Temple Heights is on the street. Most, if not all the cottages have a right of way in front and in the back of the cottage. Cars will at times park in the right of way just to unload supplies. Parking at the cottage is convenient and you can pull up next to the cottage. Do not park in front of any right of way or on the lawn/yard. Thank you.

My wife and I and children live in NJ and summer as much as we can at our Maine cottage every summer and fall. We renovated and raised the cottage and have created a family jewel on the coast of Maine. Each morning throughout the year, our kids take turns crossing off their calendar countdown for our spring and summer cottage memories to begin!

Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

Our little spot is perfect for either relaxing inside, around the campfire in the back yard, or to utilize it as a home base to drive the coast. Many of our past renters chose our cottage for its location but found it hard to leave the cottage. The beach is a 2 minute walk, filled with sea glass, mussels, star fish and so many treasures. We have a kayak to explore the coast line and take you to the great swimming areas of kellys cove or saturday cove.

cozy. close to Bar Harbor (45 min), Camden (8 miles), and swimming lakes inland. Our swing that overlooks Islesboro is perfect for that morning cup of coffee or late night glass of wine. Our fire pit out in the back yard (we keep firewood ready for you) is usually the highlight of everyone's stay. When we are at the cottage it IS the community spot to enjoy each other.

THE PERFECT COTTAGE IN THE PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
It was our first visit Downeast and we couldn’t have dreamed of a better week. We loved everything about our cottage – it was so cozy and inviting, offered terrific views of the ocean and was mere steps away from a fabulous shore where our children never tired of searching for sea treasures. When we managed to drag them away, we visited Fort Knox in Prospect, beachcombed at Owl’s Head State Park, discovered lovely Belfast, relaxed at Lincolnville down by the shore with friendly neighbours. We found it very difficult to leave but look forward to a two-week stay next Summer.

Regarding restaurants…We can’t wait to go back to Belfast for Darby’s best-ever clam chowder and the wonderful fresh produce at Chase’s Daily. Chez Michel in Lincolnville has a terrific menu with wonderful friendly service and the buttery lobster rolls at the Lobster Pound are delicious. Enjoying ice cream at the scenic River Duck bridge and seafood at Cappy’s, overlooking Camden’s gorgeous harbour, are a must!

We would highly recommend this rental - the cottage, the location and the owner are fabulous!

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY FOR COASTAL MAINE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this cottage for our coastal Maine vacation. Used it as our home base for the week. Was hard to leave it for our excursions along the coast - so peaceful. Loved the porch swing views! It was perfectly located for going up and down the coast. Camden Hills state park and Acadia National Park a must see - both were very doable in a day! Owner was very accommodating in our last minute plans even made recommendations for restaurants along the way. The kitchen had everything you could need. The bathroom (with washer and dryer!) looked like new. Met the 2 neighborhood huge orange tabby cats. Would stay here again in a heartbeat - unfortunately live 18 hours away!

WE HAD A FANTASTIC TIME IN THIS COZY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Location was good. Only a couple minutes walk to the ocen. A steep hill but only a couple hundred yards. LOTS of sea creatures to view such as crabs, starfish, sand dollars, clams.
View is fantastic and the neighbors are very friendly.
Awesome "rent a dog (named Chase)" that visits you on the beach.
Only 10 minutes to Belfast which is a very cute town as is Camden which is only 15 minutes away.
Great for families as the owners have all sorts of games and toys.

PERFECT FAMILY RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time at this cottage. The location is extremely convenient considering the short walk to a peaceful beach and the proximity to dining, shopping and other activities. Can't say enough about how important this is when traveling with 3 small children!

The cottage itself was a joy...very inviting and cozy with plenty of personal details that made us feel as though we were staying with dear old friends instead of renting. Plenty of space for the 5 of us and we found the cottage to be well supplied with the items we needed to prepare meals and generally enjoy ourselves.

We'll never need to search for another cottage in Maine because truly, nothing could compare to this one!

GET-AWAY OF A LIFETIME!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the cottage for a week last June. We cannot put into words how wonderful it was! The cottage is perfect for a relaxed vacation, away from all of the "city hustle and bustle" that so frequently occupies our time. When you first walk in the door, you are greeted by a warm cozy feeling of being home, rather than a cold dank hotel. The bay views are fabulous and there is no better relaxation than sitting on the porch swing watching the sailboats on the bay! Just a short walk down the hill is a super easy access to the beach, although be prepared for "cooler" water temps as this is not Florida.

While the cottage is somewhat removed from the city, there are grocery stores and stores in nearby Belfast that are quick and easy to find. I would also highly recommend checking out the Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast for a wonderful and reasonably priced lobster meal.

The only negative about staying at the Cottage was at the end of our stay we had to return home. After spending 5 days at the Cottage, neither my wife nor I wanted to return home to South Carolina.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this rental to anyone!!!

QUAINTLY BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
FAntasitc view every morning and evening. Firepit is cosy as is the cottage itself! New bathroom was a great surprize- not every cottage has a modern bath, ability to wash and dry your clothes, and....we LOVED BELFAST!
I hope to return in the late summer.
