      Lovely cottage in an incomparable setting!

      5 of 5
      We had a wonderful stay at the Cottage at Broad Cove Reserve. We booked the trip at the last minute, after our son broke his leg, making it impossible to go on the vacation we had previously planned. The house had only recently been listed on VRBO, so we were very lucky to find it! Marj was extremely responsive and provided all of the necessary details quickly. The location of the cottage is amazing! It overlooks the reserve, which is an absolutely gorgeous, classically "Maine" setting. The views from the master bedroom and living room are breathtaking, and much of the house has recently been nicely renovated. An attendant in a golf cart is available to help drive you to and from the beach, which is also an easy walk if you don't have too many bags with you. The beach is tidal, with lots of wildlife to be seen in the tidal pools--it's perfect for kids. In addition to being a wonderful secluded setting, the cottage is about 10 minutes away from downtown Portland. We hadn't really investigated the city before, and I'm so pleased that we finally had the chance! We also had the chance to take a ferry to Peaks Island, and also to walk around Mackworth Island, both favorites for our kids. Our only slight complaint was that the kitchen could have been stocked a bit better--a can opener and a toaster oven were the only major items missing, though. Overall, this was a fantastic trip for our family, at a time when we really needed it. My son has asked many times if we can please return when his leg has healed!

      Beach Cottage Disguised as Lake Cabin

      5 of 5
      We arrived to this charming bungalow to find a bottle of wine and nice flowers. The house feels more like a lake cabin than a beach house. It is set back among massive oaks and features a wrap-around porch and exposed joists and beams. The warm wood floors were likely salvaged, as were many of the windows, which open on simple top hinges and are secured by ropes and pulleys. The addition to the original cabin is a large (at least 16 x 24) dining room/TV room that is really spacious and welcoming. The furniture is old, but it's comfortable. And you can tell this was once a beloved family gathering place. That feeling conveys. Old books and college yearbooks abound. The owner judiciously allows previous renters to leave behind condiments, spices, extra coffee, etc. We added to the coffers our own spices and teas. It's nice to arrive with some creature comforts. Expect dull knives and mismatched plates. But expect surprises - like muffin tins, sufficient lobster crackers, pitchers for cream on fresh berries - also a few shot glasses for libations. When the DVD player broke, Ben authorized me to upgrade it - so now the cabin has Blu-Ray and, with the addition of a network cable, access to Netflix. That's a nice touch. WiFi signal was good on the cabin ground floor. I took one star off because there are no doors separating bedrooms. If you are a couple and want a little privacy, closing the door isn't an option. Curtains separate upstairs bedrooms, and the downstairs "guest bedroom" with the queen bed has parlor-style doors. I'd recommend to the owner a few more rustic doors to remedy. That's my only reservation, though. The neighborhood is beautiful, the beach quaint, the cabin cozy, and the owners thoughtful. Propane fireplaces remove morning chills. Beds are comfortable. Each bed had at least two pillows. Towels and linens were provided. Blankets are rotated with each guest. This is the perfect home base for Downeast and Downtown. A town market is nearby. The Rosemont Market in nearby Yarmouth was a trove of eclectic veggies, great cheeses, and fresh fish. We took outings to Boothbay (less than an hour) and Monhegan Island, Portland (10 mins), and Old Orchard beach (20-25 min). Portland is awesome for foodies and art. My wife, daughter, and I very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Ben and Joan!
