CHARMING NEW WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON PRIVATE PENINSULA W/ DEEP WATER DOC

Harpswell Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 BR w/ 2 Q bunkbeds; 7' sleeping loft w/ Q bed; 1 Bath. Sleeps 4 adults,no kids

A true Maine treasure, this 1.5 acre location on Sunset Cove offers unobstructed westerly views from Falmouth to Brunswick! The 500' private oceanfront peninsula and private deep-water dock is situated on Middle Bay in Harpswell and affords magnificent evening sunsets. The rocky coastline and sandy beach have views of many islands dotting the pristine waters of greater Casco Bay, in-between which you can see distant Mount Washington in NH on a clear day. The newly-built custom cottage offers 1 bedroom with queen-sized bunkbeds; a roomy, 8-foot high loft has another Queen bed above the modern bathroom. A wall of windows creates expansive, breath-taking views and light-filled spaces, creating a cozy sanctuary where you will feel very much at home. The large living room offers cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, gorgeous pine flooring and craftsman-style details that add a great deal of cottage appeal. The dining nook, adorned by a candelabra, creates evening dining with a view

A full galley kitchen with built-in Microwave, new Range and Oven, hardwood cabinetry and generous counter space will supply you with the convenience and ultimate privacy, with stunning views and a warm, cozy feel.

The large lawn and small gardens surround the cottage, with a deck for BBQs and outdoor eating, or just for sitting and taking in the beauty of the Maine coast. Adirondack chairs and picnic table are on the peninsula for fabulous views of seals and eagles on the ledges. Sunset Cove Cottage is located on a well-maintained private dead-end road with lovely year-round neighbors border the property on either side.

Friends and family say we lead a 'charmed life' ... we certainly have had an unusual and adventurous one! You can read about some of it on the Innkeepers page of our website at http://www.ilovethelodge.com/innkeepers/index.php

Cathi Belcher purchased this cottage in 2011

Cathi, aka The 'Lodge Lady' at her inn, is definitely a landlubber! Writing as 'The Mountain Farmgirl' for MaryJanes Farm, she is a forest-mountain-and waterfall person through and through. Dana, on the other hand, is an old salt with the sea in his veins, and needed to have a place on the coast of Maine to retire to, and from which he could sail in his sailboat. The result was a piece of heaven called Sunset Cove Cottage.

Between their inn in the White Mountains of NH and the cottage in Harpswell, Maine, it is truly the best of both worlds. Cathi has come to love it almost as much as Dana as 'Their Adventures Continue ...'

There is something truly energizing about the sea. The salt air is health-giving, life is 'real', and the people who have inhabited this coast are rugged, independent and self-reliant. Being only 10 minutes from Bowdoin College, founded in the late 1700s is incredible. The very old New England feel to this town, the intellectual pursuits to be had here, and the art and culture which are so abundant, make it truly an ideal location. Add to this the fact that Portland, Maine (voted the 'Most Livable Small City in America' 3 times in a row) is less than 30 minutes away, and the setting is absolutely perfect! Ocean life is very engaging. It is here, with the tides in constant ebb and flow, that one notices that life is in continual change; nothing ever stays exactly the same!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This was truly one of my favorite vacations. My husband and I spent a week here in August. It truly exceeded all of our expectations. Upon arrival I was truly amazed that there were gorgeous water views from all rooms in the cottage (except the bathroom). We had the most relaxing and restful week. Harpswell and the surrounding towns are charming. I highly recommend this cottage to any couple that wants to spend a wonderful and relaxing week together. I will definitely be back next year. Cathi (the owner) was so helpful in answering all of my questions.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
The house itself was just as nice in person as the pictures made it look, and we would not hesitate to rent it again.

We rented the cottage for a week at the end of May. The weather was in the upper 60s to low 70s so we did not need to use the heaters and did not mind the lack of air conditioning. I thought there would be a hair dryer based on the description but I did not find one. I think that was the only difference between the listing and the actual amenities. The house was very clean and felt new.

Cathi was very helpful and made the whole process very easy. We had no problems whatsoever.

Do yourself a favor and visit Erica's Seafood (just before the Dolphin Marina restaurant)

(NOTE: We do not rent to families with children under 18, smokers or allow any pets). Sunset Cove Cottage is a meticulously maintained and deeply loved coastal property. It is owned by a homeschooling family who will one day make it their year-round home when they retire from their current profession of Innkeeping in the White Mountains of NH. Enjoy our private deep water dock for sailing, fishing & kayaking; watch working lobster boats or take a fishing excursion on a charter boat from Cooks Marina. Our 500+ feet of private waterfront has a sandy beach for swimming and the rugged rocky coastline that typifies the beauty of Maine. Watch seals and eagles from our private peninsula and 1.5 acre grounds. Our newly-constructed seaside cottage is brand new, beautifully furnished and handcrafted with the highest quality materials. A stunning view of Middle Bay is dotted with islands, and affords a majestic view of distant Mount Washington on a clear day. It’s only 25 minutes by boat to ‘Old Port’ (in Portland, ME), where you can take in dinner and a show, or a day of shopping and museum hopping. Located only 12 minutes from historic Bowdoin College in Brunswick, this college town has all the culture of a vibrant educational center: theater, museums, lectures, art galleries, concerts and unique shops. The village of Harpswell is steeped in history from its meeting house and church, the old town pound and Historical Society museum, to the famous Cribstone Bridge, the only one of its kind in the world. Hike or bike nearby trails and backroads on Harpswell’s many peninsulas, which boast the most coastline of any town in the US! Take day trips to Freeport (15 miles) to the home of LLBean and the fabulous shopping outlets. Drive only 40 miles to Boothbay for whale watching, puffin tours, unique shops and restaurants and the incomparable Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Until we are able to enjoy and live on our dream property year-round, we are happy to share it with adult vacationers who love peace and solitude, the beauty of nature and the coast of Maine as much as we do.
