Comfy, Relaxing Cottage

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! We stayed for 5 nights as we attended a wedding at the lighthouse on Friday. Janet could not have been more helpful with keeping in contact, a beautiful card, information on Maine waiting on the table. The cottage was a delight with a screened in porch, some food in the fridge, and a short walk to the shore. Did I mention a screened in porch!! : )Wedding lobster bake at a co-op, New Harbor for a dinner, North Country Wind Bells on Rt. 32, Freeport for LLBean, and Damariscotta with a pirate festival on Saturday lent for an enjoyable exploration of the area. A splendid place to unwind!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very charming and we were always finding interesting books and items to look at. Three generations were very happy here for four days. It was very peaceful and we had the beach to ourselves. I would definitely recommend to friends and will return again.

Our stay at the cottage was wonderful. Weather was pretty good most of the week. Cottage was clean and comfortable. Kitchen space was small, but not an issue if you visited any of the number of local establishments to eat. Screened in porch was wonderful for the breeze and seeing the sunsets daily. Could easily see the water through the trees and watch the lobster boats as they pulled their traps. Owner was very hospitable in our interactions. A great place for a couple or small family. Lack of TV forced us to read daily (not a bad thing at all!).

Peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was exactly like the pictures. The screened porch was so delightful, we used it for dining, relaxing, playing games, etc. The cool breezes and the sound of the water made the porch particularly relaxing.
The cottage was clean, we were welcomed with a note and special touches by the owner,like candys on the beds, fresh flowers in the rooms, all in all, just a very welcoming feeling.
I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone...as long as you aren't into cooking. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots and dishes but is very small, impossible for more than one person to be in at a time. Even with the small kitchen I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. It was a very special place.

Lovely Cottage, Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time at this very clean and comfortable cottage. Our family enjoyed our nightly sunset walks to the water. Pemaquid Lighthouse is a walk away also. The Sea Gull shop next to the lighthouse is an awsome restaurant to enjoy breakfast and to see the lobster boats in the ocean. The Hardy Boat ride to see the seals was an adventure and we enjoyed fresh lobster and steamers at Shaws. It is fun to head into Damariscotta and Wiscasett for antiquing. Reny's and the Mid Coast Book Store are a must stop. The Rexall Drugstore serves up a nice Coffee Frappe at the soda fountain. Close to the cottage there is a beautiful sandy beach to enjoy and jump into the refreshing salt water.We rented kayaks and paddled into Pemaquid Harbour. So many more activities to do for all. We will definitely come back for another summer vacation, The owner is very accomodating and gave us many suggestions of places to see and visit.
