SECLUDED COTTAGE WITH SCENIC WATERFRONT VIEW ON EASTERN HARBOR

Addison Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom, one bath, 75 feet from the shore

Located in South Addison, a quiet lobster fishing village, the cottage contains a living/dining area, galley kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a year-round porch leading onto an outside deck with a gas grill. The bathroom/utility room has a shower, sink, and toilet plus the washer/dryer. The downstairs bedroom contains two twin beds. The loft has two twin beds. There is a futon on the year-round porch that makes into a single bed.

High tide is a good time to explore with the two kayaks provided. Bring your camera for once in a lifetime shots of the local wildlife.

This is a great spot to watch osprey and eagles looking for fish. When the lobsters are shedding their shells, it attracts seals that can be seen in the harbor. Shore birds abound during the spring and fall migration times. October is a prime time to see migrating ducks. Old squaw, teal, black, mallard and eider are most common. There is a 20-45X Bushnell spotting scope on the porch to enhance the views in the harbor.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets considered
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm

John grew up in Massachusetts. I, Mary Rose, was raised in Minnesota. We met and married at Glacier National Park in Montana in 1973. In 1975 we moved to Maine.

Mary Rose Pray purchased this cottage in 1985

We settled in central Maine in 1975. John's dream though was to be a lobster fisherman so we moved to Addison in 1985. The first time we saw this property we fell in love with the view. We call it our million dollar view! Our first summer there we built our little log home on the shore with the help of our three children. The picture above we took returning from an afternoon enjoying a water outing around Eastern Harbor. Always changing, the views outside our dining and porch windows are better than television!

Downeast Maine is a unique getaway that we always look forward coming home to. Now our nine grandchildren enjoy spending time at our cottage on the shore. We hope our guests find pleasure in the quiet and beauty of the area as much as we do.

Best family vacation yet!

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely adored our stay at the cottage in Addison. It was our first visit to beautiful Maine--my husband, two young sons and our Aussie. We had our breakfast while Vivaldi's four seasons flooded from the open windows! We watched bald eagles and falcons feeding from the deck. We saw a porcupine in the yard and harbor seals and porpoise pods in the cove. We ate clams from the diggers in our backyard! We also ate almost 60 lbs. of glorious lobster! Cape split beach and sheep island were unforgettable. We kayaked and cooked on the beach--foraged for periwinkle snails and sautéed them in butter---amazing! I could go on and on...thank you so very much Mary rose pray! You are a gracious host and your land and cottage made a lasting impression on our family. We are truly missing the beautiful and unspoiled surroundings into which we had fully immersed ourselves. We are already planning for our return. This vacation in your cottage was the best vacation that the Nichols family has ever had! Thank you!!!

Very charming with a beautiful view.

The cottage had everything you would need for a wonderful stay. We did not get the pleasure of meeting Mary Rose Pray in person but from all the phone conversations I had with her I can tell you that will never meet a nicer lady. We arrived at the same time the hurricane had come thru the area and the cottage had no power but Mary Rose very kindly refunded our money. Thank you again and we hope to return.

Most pleasant two weeks

  • 5 of 5
Quiet, great view, clams available to purchase from local diggers who use cottage shorefront at low tides, excellent dog walking area and red squirrels to entertain our dog. Site accurately described on web. Eagle nest on island to front of site often visited by its owner. Of the two kayaks, a single and a two seater, the single was used for a scenic ride along the shoreline and around the aforementioned large island. Great sunrise scene. Recommended for an enjoyable but austere stay.

A Downeast Maine Off the Grid Getaway

  • 4 of 5
This area is one of Maine's hidden gems. If you like being away from tourist and seeing Maine they way it was essentially for many years this is the place. Lobster boats, clam diggers and spectacular sunsets are all part of the experience. This is where eagles fly over the camp, a special bonus.

As to the camp itself, pretty well equipped, very clean, and comfortable, could use lobster tongs. I really enjoyed this vacation and had traveled 1,000 miles to get there. The owners have an interest in seeing that you enjoy your stay. I would recommend this especially for anyone wanting to kayak. A word of caution the fog comes quickly as does the SW wind.
Thanks

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Jim. Sorry you couldn't find the lobster tongs. I bought a new pair this spring and put them with the lobster pot and instructions for cooking lobsters.

True Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week at this cottage. If you are looking for a private, secluded and tranquil getaway that is budget friendly, this is the place for you! We were in want of nothing. The cottage is clean, well equipped, and has great views of the water. There is a nice loft that provided a quiet niche for our son. We sat out on the deck every day admiring the ocean and enjoying the sea breeze. There were two kayaks to use with one being a double, and we really enjoyed kayaking during high tide. One day we kayaked around the little island (where the eagles visit) that is not too far from the cottage. We had never kayaked on the ocean before, and we felt very comfortable on the water due to the inlet we were on. My husband did some clamming a couple of days, and the clams were the tastiest and freshest I have ever had! Visitors need to check with the owner on the current clamming license regulations. Also, the owner was absolutely wonderful to deal with--we will definitely consider going back. She allowed us to bring our pets which was very accommodating to say the least. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a true peaceful, quiet getaway right on the water with amazing views!

Very nice stay!

  • 5 of 5
A very nice stay in Northern Maine. All the comforts of home and that is exactly the way we enjoyed it. Thanks to John and Mary Rose for sharing their piece of Maine with us. The clams I dug were delicious and the lobsters outstanding. The cabin has everything you need. The view is beautiful and the locals very nice. Enjoyed the ghost book I found in the bedroom and the morning views from the deck. Overall a great week!
