This is the perfect quintessential Maine cottage. It is charming and beautiful, but more than that, it is comfortable. We spent hours after hiking relaxing on the deck or the screened porch. The furniture is cozy and very comfortable in both places. The setting is gorgeous and quiet and the cottage and gardens are immaculately maintained. We loved being on the back side of the island where we did not have to compete with other hikers for the trails. It was quiet and peaceful.
The owner is the best owner that we have ever dealt with - and we have a track record of summer renting at this point. She is friendly but not intrusive and exceedingly responsive. She provided all linens and paper goods, laundry detergent and beach towels as well. She is so organized that we didn’t have to do any of our own research, except for scoping out the miles of different hiking trails. The information she provided was well thought out and up to date. She also provided tips about the restaurants and reservations, as well as other activities in the area. We will be back. It’s a perfect property and a perfect owner!
