Perfect! There is no better word to describe our stay. From the first contact to the final thanks, Alyssa was a treat to deal with. She answered every question we had, and then some. The cottage was exactly as described. My family of 5 (with 3 kids 6 and under) made it our home for more than a week. We made the mistake of stopping before we got to town to grab groceries - no need. The grocery store that is close to the cottage is great. And you should head to Oak Street Provisions for a great selection of wine, beer, local meat, fresh seafood, etc. The cottage was clean and neat. We loved building fires, cooking on the grill, and the view!
Some highlights of our trip - the aquarium, the botanical gardens, puffin boat tour, walking the trails behind spruce point inn, hunting for sea glass, finding beaches (our favorite was at Reid state park), trying lobster rolls and fish sandwiches (get the fish sandwich from Phil & Mikes) from the various restaurants, swimming in the pool at spruce point inn, permaquid point lighthouse/park, climbing the rocks along the shore, the tidal pool at the Rachael Carson Preserve, and so much more that I can't remember off hand.
We were a little worried about finding enough to do with three young kids, but it turned out that we had no problems at all. We were also a little worried about having 3 kids in a smaller cottage, but that was not an issue at all either.
If we come back to this part of Maine, I have no doubt that we will reach out to Alyssa to stay at the Fisherman's Perch again.
