About the property

Delightful describes 'Treetops', an architect-designed cottage on Muscongus Bay, sublimely secluded on 60 private acres of magnificent spruce forested shore land.

Secure on-site launch & storage area for kayaks (kayaks for rent in Friendship village, five minutes away, if you don't have your own, and will be delivered directly to our beach)

Perfect Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for our wonderful stay at Treetops. It was even better than we expected. The cottage was perfect for our family of four and included more than everything needed for our stay. The book of information about the cottage and the area was immensely helpful. We are seasoned visitors to Friendship, but we were pleasantly surprised to find wonderful new places to eat and visit based on your suggestions. The hiking trails on the property are truly magical. Our kids loved making fairy houses and exploring the woods. The beach was the perfect launching spot for our kayak and provided fertile ground for our son's treasure hunting expeditions. We plan to visit again next year!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and my nephew spent a week in Maine at this gorgeous little cottage. It is completely vacation ready with all of the comforts of home. Extremely well maintained and clean. Bob and Judy, have thought of everything. You buy the groceries and you are ready to go. It is a perfect launching point to do day trips. We went to Bangor, Bar Harbor/Acadia Nat'l Park, and Portland while staying there and they were all a comfortable drive. The cottage is well off the beaten path and very peaceful. It was great to go down to the private cottage beach and watch the lobster boats checking their traps. It is truly a hidden gem. I would highly recommend this cottage rental to anyone.

We spent a wonderful relaxing week at Treetops in July. A special place that is just out of the way enough to be very private, yet accessible to many points on the central coast. The owners could not have been more hospitable.

Bob - we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at "Treetops." The cottage was clean and comfortable, and well supplied, which made it very easy to move in and begin to relax. The information booklet you provided was very helpful in planning activities - we especially enjoyed the boat ride to Monhegan and hiking on the island. Thanks again - we hope to visit Friendship again soon.
