Overview

Cundy's Harbor Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Amazing setting at water's edge, 2nd floor, 1 Q Bedroom + Q Sofa bed Sleeps 2-4

Osprey's Nest provides you with peace and quiet and is a perfect home-base for exploring Mid-Coast Maine. Relax and enjoy the views, watch the lobster boats and recreational boating, and coastal wildlife including seals, eagles and water birds. Launch your kayak directly from our yard. We have a number of islands that are fun for kayakers to explore, and the our waters are generally calm and perfect for kayaking.

Osprey's Nest is a spacious 2nd floor "home away from home" with a 10 by 25-foot deck right at the water's edge looking toward Hopkins Island and Dingley Cove and the picturesque Maine coast. Watch the tides come and go over the rocks below you. Bright and sunny....enjoy the beautiful sunrises; summer evenings are lazy and long and can be enjoyed from the deck or sofa.

You enter into the kitchen and a generous eating area. There is a nice sized bathroom with stall shower. The bedroom has a quality queen-size bed. The spacious living room has a queen-size sleeper (pull-out) sofa and two comfortable lounge chairs.

Walk into Cundy's Harbor and buy your lobsters at Watson's General Store, which has been featured on TV, and have your dinner in the pot in minutes. Cundy's Harbor is a little gem. It is an unspoiled active fishing harbor and village. From late May to mid-september you can eat at the restaurant (byob) on the wharf. They offer all sorts of fish dinners/lunches, ice cream, etc. And there is a cute gift shop and general store to explore. Ask about our deep-water mooring for your boat. Public ramp two blocks away.

We are located right between the Portland/Casco Bay area just to our south and the Midcoast Maine area just to our north. Offers tons of day trip opportunities. Bath, Boothbay, Camden, Wiscassett, Portland, Freeport, etc, etc. Museums, hiking, beaches, antiquing, shopping, eating, exploring villages and seacoast.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting! If you like to catch a gorgeous sunrise and sunset, this is the place to go! We rented all three places and had an awesome family vacation. We could cook right there or travel to restaurants close by. Purchasing local and fresh seafood was a simple task. Traveling to local beaches is also an easy task - and rewarding for both children and adults. We will be back for sure!

Cute place with a superb view!

  • 3 of 5

The location was the nicest part of this place. It is cute but dated, decorated nicely but not quite up to our standards. There was a closet that smelled of mold, where the beach chairs are, so we couldn't use them. The shower was the smallest we have ever seen and we are smaller than average size. Don't drop your soap! There is no AC or W/D, my fault for not clarifying this up front. Luckily, we did not need AC but could have used the W/D. The drive in from the main road was depressing as you will pass several run-down shacks. All in all, we made the best of it and ultimately enjoyed our 5 day stay.

Owner's Response: We are pleased these visitors ultimately enjoyed their stay and we certainly appreciate their feedback. We want to meet expectations. Ours is a genuine coastal Maine setting, in an active fishing/lobstering village....Cundy's Harbor.

Tranquility plus!!

  • 5 of 5

We tend to seek out low-key, non-touristy destinations when we venture away from our bustling DC-area, and Osprey's Nest in Cundy's Harbor more than met our goals. While it's an easy drive to places like Portland and Boothbay Harbor if you feel more action beckoning, Cundy's Harbor is meant for the meandering stroll or kayak outing and the deck at the Osprey's Nest is the perfect perch for watching the tide's ebb and flow, enjoying sunrises or sunsets, or just losing yourself in a good book. The only sounds heard during our week were that of gulls, lobster boats, and the gentle lapping of the water. We walked a block down a dirt path to pick lobsters from the local boat's afternoon arrival, then strolled back to our cottage to steam them in the lobster pot provided. YUM! It doesn't get much better or more affordable! We strolled about a mile to the small, well-stocked village library, with its bright cheerful interior and beautiful backyard water view. We listened to locals sharing stories in Watson's General Store (run by the same family since 1856!) and received very helpful advice on off-the-beaten-path places to explore.

We shared homemade treats with a delightful family renting the cottage next door and there was no one in the unit below us until the owners - also delightful - arrived at the end of the week. We lucked out with good weather and no loud music or voices nearby. We loved visiting Bailey Island and Harpswell, again, just poking into nooks and crannies and chatting with locals. Amazing geological formations along the Giant's Stairs path and at the end of the island at Land's End. A truly lovely, welcoming way of life found on our jaunts! Be sure to try the lobster salad at Morse's Cribstone Grill at the bridge on Bailey Island and morning munchies at the Schoolhouse Cafe! Both were hits. And don't overlook the wonderful grounds of Bowdoin College campus in nearby Brunswick...the campus itself is gorgeous, but the live theater, museum on Admiral Peary's arctic exploration and one on Civil War General Joshua Chamberlain (former president of the college) were also treats.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Highlight was the beautiful view from the deck on which we enjoyed many meals from local seafood. This is a special location.

All facilities, furnishings, conveniences and other needs were thoughtfully provided for. We found the unit, towels and linens in very clean condition.

We enjoyed the art created by Chris’ mother, Jean. The area is quiet and enjoyable. People are very friendly and hospitable.

We rented a canoe for the week and went out onto the bay twice per day. A heard of grey seals welcomed us on one sunny afternoon from the shore of a local island; elusive harbor seals dived into the water and peaked at us from the water as we passed.

We enjoyed swimming in the adjacent waters and gathered mussels and steamer clams.

On our first day, July 4th, we were treated to a most elaborate fireworks display viewed overhead from lounge chairs on the deck. You probably should not expect this.

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Maine for our 25th Anniversary. We stayed in Boothbay Harbor for 1 night and did the whale watching which was great but the real treat was staying here at Osprey's Nest! The view is out of a movie. It is so great to see the lobster boats and sail boats coming in and out of the harbor. One morning we even got to see the Bald Eagle sailing above us! There are so many sites to see in this area. Go to Giant's Stairs at Bailey's Island and eat at the Giant's Stairs dinner. Great fish sandwich with home made onion rings! Dolphin Marina and Restaurant is a great place for a nice dinner with an amazing sunset! Lobster stew is really good too. And also buy your lobster right here at Watson's to make a great dinner at this amazing place that we cant wait to come back too! If you're second guessing where to stay? This is your place!
