Special Needs Teacher from Boston

Janet Collins-Haffey purchased this cottage in 1988

Since I was a freshman in college I have been traveling to this location. I came to Maine to visit a friend I grew up with and never wanted to leave. Now I get to come here as often as I wish.

Every corner one turn is eye candy. You must come to see it! Just beautiful in the fall.

We had a wonderful stay at your cottage. We fit in lots of fun activities from eating lobster, to swimming at the beach, to a day at Monhegan Island, touring the Botanical Gardens and an auto-ride up Mt. Battie. I am leaving 2 hot pads I bought so others can use them. We found them useful for serving from the pots on the table. I especially enjoyed the raspberry jam on toast. Thank you.

Thank you so much for having us! The cottage is adorable. We had fun listening to the Star Wars soundtrack on the stereo and reading some Alfred Hitchcock.
Can't wait to visit again.

Janet,
Thank you so much for the cottage and the yummy cinnamon rolls! We had a wonderful time here in Pemaquid Point. Beautiful weather, lots to see and do! The wrist bands were a lifesaver! Morris had no problems on the Puffin Watch (saw so many!) and the trip to Monhegan. I loved the hiking. We will definitely be back! Have a good school year.

Loved our 4 night stay here. Close to great activities from swimming to eating lobster to boat trip to Monhegan Island to Botanical Gardens to gift shopping to touring quaint harbor towns to watching beautiful sunsets. Gorgeous flowers welcomed us when we returned to the cottage. Small but comfortable for two.
Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you.
