Guestbook comments from the owner

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 simple life

  • 5 of 5

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.

This is what a Maine vacation should be.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.

A true Maine experience!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We're so pleased by how much you enjoyed our cottage and Tenants Harbor. Your response to the cottage about its simplicity and the location is very similar to ours. We enjoy our walks into the village and the restaurants there, with a choice of two on the water, Cod End and the Eastwind Inn's restaurant and pub. The propane, fireplace-like cast iron stove does comes in handy, especially off-season when it can be chilly at night and sometimes during the day. With regard to the ceiling in the bedrooms, if you're not concentrating, you can bump your head. My husband is much taller than I am and has been known to bump his head once or twice at the beginning of our stay, forgetting that the ridge-line of 6 ft., 6 in. tapers. I'll review the introductory text to see how I might modify that. Thank you for the suggestion.

Tenants Harbor Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

This cottage has a lovely private location with a view of the water in a quiet neighborhood. We found it immaculate and the owners very helpful. Would not hesitate to go back.

I would prefer a gas grill vs. charcoal and the stairs are quite steep and were not able to get our suitcases upstairs, but the beds were comfortable and we spent most of our time downstairs, in the screened in porch or on the front deck which has a lovely view. Very relaxing!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed the cottage and location and would not hesitate to return. You will be most welcome! With regard to the grill, I wonder if you saw the new Webber "chimney" that enables you to have the charcoal ready in 15 or 20 minutes using newspaper and a match - without the use of charcoal fluid. It is in the boat house just as you enter. I'll add a note to our renters' booklet to make sure others are aware of it. I hope that you unpacked and were then able to tuck your suitcases away upstairs and that you used the two bureaus and the clothes poles, hangers, and hooks upstairs. So glad you enjoyed the new screened in porch. We look forward to your return.
