Our stay at Fort Point Cove Cottage is a vacation we will never forget. The house was exactly what we wanted and more! We stayed for 7 nights and were sad to say goodbye to this beautiful home. With its stunning views and expansive property, we woke up every morning relaxed and happy ro be there. My in-laws stayed in the master suite which for them with their early nights gave them the privacy and quiet they needed. My husband and I shared the smaller room which was still able to accommodate a king sized bed and a play pen for our toddler. The daybed on the landing was perfect for our 7 yr old daughter. The kitchen was well stocked with all the needed supplies and even had a pantry for all our goodies! Having a dishwasher and washer and dryer were added bonuses. The home was tastefully decorated, had a large 60" tv that the men loved.
The location is fabulous. We spent many days exploring so many places that Maine has to offer. Shopping in Bangor, strolling in the quaint little town of Belfast. Visiting the Hope Elephants which have now been returned to their home in Oklahoma since their caretaker's tragic accidental death this month. The highlight of our trip was Acadia National Park! Just over an hour away, we loved it so much that we actually made the trip twice to get to the amazing Sand Beach. Nearby we also visited the Penobscot Narrows Observatory and Fort Knox, both within 10 minutes from FPCC.
We could have spend many more weeks at this cottage and we would never have been homesick. It really felt like home. I see that the screen doors to the enclosed porch have now been put up. Unfortunately for me while we were there they were not yet in place so I missed out on relaxing on the porch since my toddler kept trying to get away!
All in all a fabulous place to visit. Totally worth the price. We would definitely consider returning there in the future. Darlene the owner is a fabulous hostess and is super accommodating. Thanks Darlene!
