Situated in McFarland's Cove, this peaceful and comfortable cottage is the perfect setting for a family vacation. Set 300' off a private road, the cottage is nestled in the woods with back views of Poor House Cove. A short walk across the street brings you to the front cove and the rocky beach of the McFarland Cove Association, a private and sheltered swimming area. A short walk out the back of the cottage brings you to the peaceful back cove with kayaking, canoeing and fishing opportunities. The cottage features a bedroom and full bath on the first floor with the remaining 2 bedrooms and other full bath on the second floor. A washer and dryer are located on the first floor. A canoe is available for use by renters. The cottage is furnished simply but comfortably. We now have a monitor for heating on those cool nights and chilly early mornings. A deck was added to the cottage providing a comfortable place for peaceful contemplation of the back cove. Conveniently located near Christmas Cove and Pemaquid Point, this summer rental is well placed for access to all mid-coast area activities.

McFarland's Cove: McFarland's Cove is a small community of family and friends who have been coming to the area for generations. The same families have owned summer camps and cottages in the cove since the 1940s. Cove residents go out of their way to extend a warm and friendly welcome to newcomers. The front cove looks out on Witch Island, an uninhabited spot owned by Maine Audubon. It makes a perfect destination for a boat ride. Pack a picnic and set out to the island for an easy hike and some bird watching. Beyond Witch Island is John's Bay emptying into the Atlantic.
