Guestbook comments from the manager
On one of two separate visits to Tenants Harbor, Maine, I stayed at the Balsam Cottage. This large comfortable cottage is sheltered by the trees that offer privacy. The kitchen is well appointed with all necessary cooking utensils including a lobster pot. I enjoyed the local village and scenic harbor and ocean views while on quiet walks. Nearby (a few miles down the road) is a great beach called Drift In. It was on the way to Marshall Point Lighthouse and museum. Next time I visit, I plan to take the ferry to Monhegan Island where many artists including the Wyeths found their inspiration and did a lot of painting… Reply: Dear Carol, We appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you again, soon

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
There is nothing better than leaving a city and staying at a place like this quaint cottage. It was the perfect home base to go on day trips and come back to total quiet and calm. The house was clean and tidy and was the perfect place to stay. Also! In walking distance to a few places nearby including the General Store and East Wind Inn. Would come back in a flash!

Owner's Response: Dear Molly: Thank you so much for your delightful review of The Balsam Lane Cottage! It was built by my parents this is where they stay when in the Harbor. It is large and comfortable so all of my sisters and families visit them there when traveling to Maine. My children have many fond memories of these visits. Regards, Linda

VACATION GETAWAY TO REMEMBER

  • 4 of 5
Tenant's Harbor was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The large home was in a wooded, private location and was clean, roomy, and very accomodating. The lobster pots in the kitchen were perfect for cooking the fresh lobster from Ann, the "fisherwoman", at the Cod End fish market. Kayaking with the seals in the harbor in Rockland was a real treat (Breakwater Kayak tours). Also, the abundant fresh blueberries in the summer were delicious and made the best pies (the pies were found at several area farmer's markets).

There were so many places to visit within a 1 hour drive that we would love to come back for another stay to see more of this beautiful area of Maine. Thank you, Miriam, for always being kind and accomodating whenever we spoke.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our Balsam Cottage.Tenants Harbor is so close to so many wonderful places to visit. Cod End, overlooking the harbor is a favorite place for casual dining or for purchasing seafood to go. And, Maine blueberry pie is a treat. Thanks for the recommendation for the kayaking tour.

We look forward to accomodating whenever you return to Maine.

Thank you for your kind review!

WONDERFUL

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Maine. As with the weather, the house was perfect! We loved walking around and enjoying the sights of the harbor, the short drive to Marshall's Point Lighthouse and catching the ferry to Monhegan Island. The lobster pot came in handy as we took advantage of the fresh lobster available. We look forward to coming back and staying again at the Balsam Cottage.
