The Cottage was one of the best places we’ve stayed in Maine, and we’ve visited four other locations. It’s clean, has comfortable beds, and is charmingly decorated. But the very best thing about the cottage is the 180-degree view from the windows looking out at Penobscot Bay. It’s even better than these pictures. The sounds of the sea birds and the waves is so calming and peaceful. Watching the changing tides is fascinating. Yes, I did find some sea-glass. 😊
A short drive takes you into Belfast, a picturesque town of wonderful restaurants and shops. Must recommend Delvino’s for amazing Italian, Dockside for great lobster rolls, Darby’s for the freshest Haddock anywhere, and Harborwalk for the largest salads I’ve ever eaten. Don’t forget to try the blueberry pancakes at Country Rose between the cottage and the town. Who knew you could include that many blueberries in a pancake? Anytime you don’t want to eat out, the Hannaford Grocery Store is more than capable of handling your needs.
Of course, you want to make a trip into Camden for a sail on one of the schooners. We went out on The Surprise. The views are spectacular. The Penobscot Marine Museum up the road a short distance from Belfast to Searsport is a must.
Some days we just hung out at the cottage. As I mentioned it was restful, beautiful, and peaceful. We had wonderful weather, just cool enough to use the fireplace. We hope to return next year to take in the gorgeous foliage again. Thanks so much to Fran and Ellen for sharing this jewel with others.
We have stayed at this spot a few times and would not hesitate to return. The area is beautiful and serene and at the same time, it is accessible to other venues. The cottage itself is most comfortable and well equipped. We highly recommend this cottage.
