We had a wonderful time at Whispering Reeds Cottag

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Whispering Reeds Cottage. The cottage was very nice and clean. The kitchen was well stocked, the sheets and towels were provided and it even included a pass good for admission to all state parks. We had 3 people staying for the week and the cottage was a good size. We enjoyed sitting on the screened-in porch where we good feel the breeze and enjoy the view.

Owner's Response: We are lucky to have Reid State Park (one of the best beaches in Maine) only a few miles from the cottage. We are happy to hear that the Park Pass came in handy. Hope to see you again.

Awesome views, nice clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated high on the banks of the lower Kennebec River, near Reid State Park, the views are awesome. The lot is very private, with very little traffic on the local road. The cottage is very clean and up to date, 2 good size bedrooms and baths. The kitchen has all you need, and the living room he as picture window., fireplace, comfortable seating and TV we were able to get all local TV channels with no problem. We loved the knotty pine interior, gave it a real Maine look. A short drive to Bath and Boothbay make it easy to go on day trips. Truly a Maine cottage, the way life should be!!!

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The location is beautiful, private and peaceful with great views, yet close enough to Bath (about 20 minutes) for restaurants and shopping. The cottage was very clean and well maintained, the kitchen well stocked and the bed comfortable. The owners were easy to deal with through the whole process. Autumn in Maine is wonderful and we hope to return again to this wonderful cottage next October.

A Peaceful Spot. . .

  • 5 of 5

Whispering River Reeds Cottage was a lovely respite: clean with comfortable beds, more TV stations than expected, very peaceful and serene. Dave and Susie were very accommodating and helpful. Despite excellent directions though, finding it for the first time after dark was a bit of a challenge. . . .it is in the "boonies". I'd recommend a daylight arrival. There is not much close by, as far as stores/restaurants, but we expected that. If you don't like to drive, then this would not be a good choice. We drove everyday to different destinations: Rockland, Camden, Boothbay, Damariscotta, Wiscasset, Bath for shopping, museums, and dining, 600 miles in 6 days.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever at this wonderful cottage. Our 3 years old daughter was calling it «our little house in the woods». Everything was exceptional : the cottage is comfortable, clean, well equipped and we loved the «classic Maine» interior design. Highly recommended !

Great house helped to make a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend a vacation! View is absolutely beautiful. House was very clean and comfortable, including beds and living room couch. Everything was in great shape. Looks like the bedrooms were recently renovated. Perfect size for my wife and our two kids. (We could have fit more in the sleeping loft.) Susan and David were very helpful hosts. Location is a great area, too. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Georgetown.
