This lovely home is a 3 minute walk from Pemaquid Beach and Fort William Henry on the Pemaquid Peninsula in mid-coast Maine. Originally, this building was the Pemaquid Beach Community Club, built in 1932 by determined neighborhood women. It has 10' tin ceilings, beautiful maple floors and vintage light fixtures. Restored and renovated, the home is charming,comfortable and spacious with beautiful gardens. This home was designed with children in mind, and has plenty of room even on rainy days!

Dottie has been vacationing in this area since a child with her parents,and once married she and Rog and their three children have come back every year. This magical,gorgeous area of Maine gets in your 'blood!' It is now a favorite home for their children,grandchildren,and family who stay frequently.In 2004 we were able to purchase this beautiful property and carry on renting our'vintage cottage' so other people can enjoy this special part of coastal Maine.
Roger & Dottie McConnell purchased this cottage in 2004
Close to the two beaches,fort and wonderful area to walk and bike!
Both the cottage and the main house are steeped in local history
We stayed a week in the cottage with another couple and found it a very comfortable place to stay. For two couples, there was plenty of room. Outstanding amenities include a pretty screened-in porch and a kitchen very well suited to meal preparation and easy seating for 6 people. There are lots of comfortable chairs and couches for the evening, and the beds are very comfortable. There are windows all around, and so the ventilation is very effective. The cottage was very clean when we arrived. It is only a short walk to the beach and to the boat launch and the local restaurant. It's a beautiful quiet area, away from hectic Booth Bay, but convenient to picturesque Maine scenery, galleries and good shopping. The owners were very responsive and easy to deal with in arranging our stay. This place is a great bargain -consider it for your next Maine holiday.
My husband, well behaved dog and I have been staying at this cottage for a week every year, since 2004. Rog and Dottie have created a "home away"--the cottage suits us perfectly.
We love the cottage's: cleanliness, screened in porch, cheerful color scheme, the short walk to the beach, the wonderful restaurants nearby, beautiful landscaping, wireless access, washer and dryer, the charm/history of the cottage... and much more!
Rog and Dottie, the "landlords," have become friends.They are gracious hosts, always available to make sure we are having a great time.
Our only regret has been that we've stayed just one week, not two. We hope to remedy that problem in the year ahead!
We offer our enthusiastic recommendation for the "Charming Vintage Maine Cottage."
