A Great Vacation

My wife and I rented this cottage in August of 2013: we found the owners easy to deal with - straightforward, accurate, and prompt. We also found the website description to be complete and accurate. The information sent us made cottage easy to find and access.

The water supply was good, the parking convenient and private. The cottage was clean and well-kept, the linens provided were clean and altogether adequate. Many rentals don't provide linens and pillows, so this was a real convenience. The views from the deck, screened porch, and living room were every bit as good as shown on the website.

We had wonderful weather and greatly enjoyed just sitting on the deck and watching the tides, the sunsets, and the occasional lobster boat or sailboat go by. We were able to gather perfectly good mussels (check for red tide with the Maine Department of Marine Resources!) within 50 feet or so of the cottage.

The kitchen and equipment were good, the lobster pot was the nicest I've seen for 2-4 lobsters. (Soft-shells, the only way to go, were $3.49/lb at Mosquito Lobster Co., 5 minutes away in Port Clyde - a trip I made frequently) Our only complaint was that we could have used a couple of extra lobster picks and nut crackers - but that didn't seem to slow us down much.

Although the cottage provides quiet and privacy, the short distance to Port Clyde and Tenant's Harbor enabled shopping, dining, etc. For example, we really enjoyed the lighthouse tour on the Laura B. out of Port Clyde,

All in all, we had a lovely time, and look forward to repeating it.

Delightful Cottage Stay

This cottage was described accurately on the website, and the additional information provided by the owner and realtor was detailed and most helpful. We found the cottage well-maintained, and everything was very clean.
The setting is lovely. The unfortunate part of our experience had to do with the weather, as it rained the entire week we were there except for a few clear breaks the last 2 days. For my husband, that was not an issue, as he was content to stay at the cottage, reading books, and looking out at the rain (which he loves!). I prefer to be out and about, and photography is my hobby. So I didn't do much picture-taking, but did get to some really nice museums. The cottage is some distance from the nearest built-up area, so given the weather, I did a lot of driving back and forth. In particular, I recommend the Farnsworth Museum, the Owls Head Transportation Museum, and the Henry Know Museum, Monticello. Also the Puffin Project in Rockland. We enjoyed 2 dinners at the East Wind Inn in Tenants Harbor, lunch at the Rockland Cafe and breakfast at the Thomaston Cafe. The General Store in Port Clyde is a neat place, and they have yummy cupcakes!
Unfortunately, the weather kept us from taking the boat over to Monhegan Island, which we had planned to do.
I would certainly recommend this property to a friend, and especially to anyone who enjoys solitude and the sound of the waves lapping at the shore.
My only negative comment about the cottage is that for someone, like myself, who has back problems, the furniture in the living room is all quite soft, so bringing along some firm cushions might help. The king-size bed, however, was very comfortable.
