One word: Perfect.

  • 5 of 5
This was my second summer at An Tigin--I couldn't stay away, and I can't imagine a more perfect cottage. The location is ideal, especially the magical and ever-changing view of the water. The dramatic tides are fascinating to watch from the deck, and the view is mesmerizing whether in bright sunshine or wispy fog. The cottage is a quick drive from the swing bridge that leads onto Southport Island, with very easy access to other sites on Southport (like Oliver's restaurant or the general store) as well as the more bustling town of Boothbay Harbor back across the bridge. The garden and backyard are truly idyllic, stretching down to a tiny cove, with views out toward more distant islands.

My first summer there we used the kayak every day, kayaking out to Burnt Island (a lovely nearby island with a lighthouse) and around the coastline of Southport Island. That summer I was visiting with my parents, both in their 70s, and the cottage was perfect for them--very comfortable, a great homebase for day trips and a wonderful place to relax. This past summer I went to An Tigin with younger, more active friends, and it was perfect for our purposes as well! After a day of hiking, hours of kayaking and sailing, or swimming in the cool local waters, returning to the cottage was blissful, and we also made a point of balancing time at the cottage with all of that activity, since the cottage itself is so pleasant.

Finally, it also must be said that Brooke is an amazing landlady! The care she has taken in renovating this lovely cottage is also reflected in how good she is at making guests comfortable. She went above and beyond for us, turning on lights for us so we could easily find our way upon our late-night arrival from the Portland airport. The cottage itself is immaculate, with cozy bedrooms and plenty of indoor space for the occasional rainy day, and outdoor space for barbecuing and sunbathing.

Both summers it has been very hard to leave such a lovely place, and I hope to return soon...

Perfect cottage for a relaxing family vacation

An Tigan one of the nicest cottages we have ever rented. Although Brooke’s description is very accurate the house exceeded our expectations. As others have said it was like staying in a real home rather than a vacation rental. It’s described as “tiny” but there really is lots of space for 4 particularly when you include the decks and lovingly maintained garden. The view from the deck (and from all of the property) was fantastic and we enjoyed some great family meals cooked on the gas BBQ - including locally bought Lobster. There is loads to do in the area within a short drive; Whale watching, organised kayak trips, nice walks in the preserves and swimming in the sea. At high tide we used Brooke’s Kayak and paddled round the islands. Brooke made the booking process really easy and she couldn’t have been more helpful whilst we were there. At the same time she respected our privacy. The only problem was a week went too quickly. Hope to go again and did I mention the view from the deck? Thanks again Brooke
