Harpswell Cottage Rental Photos and Description
4 bedrooms, sleeps 4 adults and 4 children,1 full bath plus half bath
SeaBreeze, a classic Maine Victorian cottage, was built in 1910 on a hillside overlooking Gurnet Strait. Panoramic views of the upper New Meadows River are but one of the attractions ~ enjoy your morning coffee on the expansive veranda while watching lobstermen hauling traps. Later in the day, relax on your private dock for Happy Hour as the sun sets over Gurnet Strait. Indian Rest, the community encompassing SeaBreeze, was established in 1903 and this cottage was one of the first to be built. Serving as a Tea House in a previous era, she has been lovingly maintained in a manner preserving both her charm and character. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are included at no charge. Walking trails through fifty acres of natural woodland provide yet another relaxing diversion. You will have access to four kayaks (please bring your own life preservers) and a private dock in addition to use of the Indian Rest Community Dock.
The Community Dock is available for swimming and dinghy tie-up. A golf cart is included to facilitate trips back and forth between SeaBreeze and your private dock. The only item not included is a television - surrounded by beautiful scenery and friendly waters, a TV would be an intrusion ~

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a spectacular place! The views and setting are outstanding, with vistas so broad that each person in our family found a private spot to sit and contemplate the beauty of the water and islands. The house and grounds are extraordinarily well cared for, and the owners could not have been more gracious and accommodating This is a beautiful, welcoming, and relaxed environment for some serious vacationing. The cooks in the family loved the large, open, well-provisioned kitchen. We all loved kayaking, swimming, birding,, hiking, dinners on the screen porch and eating in the Harpswell area. Everything you could want in a vacation is here. We loved it!!
