We welcome you to stay at our cottage in one of the most beautiful spots on the rocky, rugged Maine coast. We are set into the woods, up a hill, with wonderful ocean vistas. Take in the sounds and aroma of crashing surf. Observe the distant islands in the Gulf of Maine, including magnificent Monhegan Island. Watch lobster boats bring in their tasty catch.
The cottage is just a few steps from the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Nature Preserve. Other short walks (~1/2 mile) along the ocean will bring you to lovely Long Cove Point, or to New Harbor, an active fishing harbor with a lobster pound and restaurant, and the Hardy Boat cruises.
A 5 minute drive will get you to Pemaquid Beach-- a real gem in Midcoast Maine, or to the famed Pemaquid Point Lighthouse-- the scene of choice for the Maine quarter.
We invite you to enjoy a quiet, relaxing vacation, in the cool, summer sea breezes. We have no cable television, but we do offer a DVD player, music system, high speed internet, and many books.

My family has been vacationing in this spot for 50 years. My parents had rented this cottage for many years. When it came on the market in 1987, my husband and I bought it, and we continued a multigenerational tradition of family fun on the coast of Maine. It has been a magnet for our family and friends of all ages who just love it here.
Love this area!!! Maine's rugged coast is spectacularly beautiful. The perfect spot for a restful getaway.
Our cottage is located in the village of Chamberlain on State Route 32, between New Harbor and Long Cove. Downeast Magazine has described this short stretch of road as 'quintessential Maine Coast'. A short walk will bring you to many fun activities. Walk over to the Salt Pond tidal pool just a few hundred yards south and sit on the rocks or take a cool dip in the 'pond'. Kids of all ages will have a blast! Walk a 1/4 mile further south to the working harbor, and eat a lobster or take a boat cruise. Or walk about 1/4 mile to the north to see Long Cove and the pleasure boats moored there. The pocket sandy beach at Long Cove is another great place for a dip or a float in the calm waters. It is also a nice landing for your kayak. Come back after your adventure and relax on the deck, hear the pounding surf and smell the fresh salt air, with miles of ocean view filling your eyes and your heart.
