We loved your cozy cottage. The snug bed upstairs kept us quite warm with all the blankets, and although Bob and I had to bend over a bit (Bob is 6 ft. tall), we managed just fine. Thanks for letting us come in so late in the season. The wood stove kept us very warm. And we enjoyed Tenants Harbor immensely. It was so quiet and serence, and the harbor was lovely this time of year. What skys! We enjoyed the little Baptist Church on Sunday, and we loved eating lunch at the Port Clyde general store. Our time went too fast.
The cottage was charming and comfortable, and the gas "woodstove" was perfect for taking the chill out on cool mornings. The screened porch in the back of the cabin was a delightfully peaceful place to sit and read. The cottage was very well appointed and had everything you might need, right down to beach toys for the kids. The location was great, and our kids had a terrific time riding their bikes to the harbor and the store.
Suzy and Joe stopped by to see how things were going, and were extremely helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. They truly went above and beyond in the hospitality department.... We thoroughly enjoyed staying in their cottage, and will likely be staying there again next summer!
My family and I stayed in this adorable cottage for 3 weeks this summer. It was everything we'd hoped for. It's a classic Maine cottage on a nice piece of well tended land (great for building fairy houses). The cottage has a very sunny front porch (perfect for that morning cup of coffee) and a lovely screened porch for playing cards or reading in the afternoons. The location is excellent. Just a short drive to Drift Inn Beach or to Port Clyde, or a leisurely walk to the Tenants Harbor general store. There are windows on all sides, so there's always a breeze. It's also a cozy place to spend a rainy day. Rockport, Camden, Thomaston, Owl's Head, and Spruce Head are a short drive away. Overall a very special cottage.
As one who travels fairly often, I have found there a certain "magical" places that call me back, and Tenants Harbor is one of those places. The experience of being on the beautiful Maine coast is thoroughly enhanced by staying in this charming, comfortable cottage. It rewards you with its authentic back-in-time feel, yet with all the necessary conveniences of home. One huge benefit is the screen porch which has the feeling of positioning one in the majestic Maine woods surrounded with dabbled sun light through the branches. From the front deck one can view the water with its sparkling gems of light as you enjoy your morning coffee and contemplate activities for the day. Walk toward town and be mesmerized by the scenery...it's captivating! View the night sky with horizon to horizon stars. Make a wish.
I return here annually for my "Maine fix"...whether kayaking, sightseeing, indulging in a variety of fine restaurants or to surrender to the breath taking scenery.
This is a very special place where one can experience the Maine coast in a lovely, comfortable cottage. That's why I return year after year after year.
We almost hate to share our feelings about this nice, cozy summer cabin in Tenant’s Harbor. If more people find their way to this wonderful cottage, it may be difficult for us our to book our two weeks next summer. We wish the thank the Kane’s for the great job they did representing the cottage and all of it’s amenities on the website. It was everything they said it was and more. We were not disappointed in our vacation choice.
The screened-in porch was a definite advantage to us. We found it to be enjoyable during rainy days, and we had many meals there along with early morning coffee. It also was a nice quiet place to read a good book in an enclosed bug-proof setting.
The light and airy kitchen was well stocked with culinary equipment to make every meal easy to assemble.
The cottage also included a boathouse, which provided storage for fishing rods and bicycles.
There is easy access for kayaking and bike riding in the area. We took many nice walks during the early morning and evening hours.
We absolutely loved our week in this cottage! We relish the past so we loved this quaint vintage cottage with all it's charm! Since it was chilly while we were there, we especially enjoyed the iron stove, it made the cottage so cozy. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was well equipped. We did bump our heads upstairs the first couple of days, and the stair/ladder was also a challenge, but we managed. Those challenges might need to be addressed a little more clearly in your overview of the cottage.
Overall, we loved our stay and the location surrounded by the beautiful woods, was probably one of our favorite features of the cottage. The little village is simply wonderful and we enjoyed some great meals at the local restaurants. The location made it so easy to run out for fresh lobster to cook for dinner, which we did several nights! Thanks for a great vacation week!
My wife and I had lived in the mid-coast area some 30 years ago, so we were familiar with the area. We hadn't been back for a visit in 14 years, so we were looking for a cozy home base in which to explore all our favorite places, discover some new ones, and catch up with some old friends. The cottage fit all our needs and wants wonderfully! It was quiet, simple, and very cozy - exactly what we had hoped for. It was perfect! We enjoyed relaxing in the enclosed screen porch (even in the rain) and had all our breakfasts and several of our dinners out there. There were no surprises - it was exactly as described, and Suzy and Joe were very warm and helpful. We look forward to returning for another stay there, hopefully in the not too distant future. We really enjoyed our stay there!
