About Hilda Douglas
Long Point is a special little piece of heaven. For generations this property has been loved and maintained for decades. It has transitioned from the year round home of my in-laws into this wonderful vacation resort for my renters, so many of whom are repeaters from one year to the next. large families to stay. Long Point has the two fully equipped kitchens, 2 living areas, 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bath and each room wis individually controlled with its own thermostat PLUS there is a gas fireplace in the south LR.
Why Hilda Douglas chose Harpswell
Long Point offers something special for larger groups. It is all together yet separate. With two kitchens, two living areas, two decks and approx 10 acres, large gatherings of family and friends find privacy as well as togetherness. Our guest reviews are our best advertising!

Perfect Vacation spot
This house is in a gorgeous setting. From the deck you can see the lobstermen check their traps and gaze at gorgeous scenery. Having kayaks and access to the water is unusual on the Maine coast. Hilda has equipped the house with everything one could possibly need. She’s attentive to the smallest detail, making staying there a pleasure. She really thinks about visitors’ entire experience in a way that’s unique. Clearly, we love staying there!
We had a great family trip to Harpswell. This house has everything you might need. I have yet to see any other VRBO or Air BnB this well appointed.
We enjoyed the kayaks and canoe and how great of shape everything was. This is not your typical rental with the bare necessities, Hilda has made sure everything is there for you.
One of the two Kitchens was recently remodeled and it looks great. We really enjoyed how half the home was newly remodeled and the other half felt like a quaint rustic cabin. The best of both worlds.
The view is spectacular and the property coastline is what you want to see in Maine. Rocky ledges but the property also has great water access off the beach and the dock.
Hilda was great to communicate with and had us prepared for the trip. She even txt'd us during the trip to ensure everything was as we needed.
Great house and great host.
Perfect location on the Maine coast. This was a return visit...and I have booked for next year as well. During our stay, we hiked many trails in the area, went kayaking out the door, visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, enjoyed an Art Walk in Brunswick.....
Words cannot adequately describe the visual and emotional response upon setting one's eyes on this property.
Lori, I’m so glad Long Point is so special to you!
We had a family gathering at this perfect home in Harpswell. It is a wonderful property- on the ocean with several places to sit and take it all in. We explored neighboring islands by kayak and we jogged, hiked and biked around the scenic countryside. After a day of exploring, we like to prepare a nice family dinner. This house is better appointed than any vacation home we have visited. Everything you might need (and more) is provided in the kitchen. The living spaces are furnished and decorated as a home would be, dispelling any sense of “rental property.” Hilda was gracious in answering a number of questions before and during our stay. She does everything she can to ensure a good experience of this place that has been special to her for many years.
It's very rewarding to read this kind review and to know that Long Point exceeded your expectations. Much effort and time are put into making it the kind of place that receives this kind of a review and I thank you for making the effort to express this for others to read.
Lovely place with all the traditional New England charm.
This was a special find for us. If you really want to know what Maine looks like, feels like and lives like this is the place. In addition, Hilda has thought of everything to make your stay quite comfortable and charming. It has the traditional charm with all the comforts. It’s lovely and Hilda was wonderful to work with! We will be back!!
Thanks so much for your kind words. It's so rewarding to know that your Long Point stay was everything you hoped it would be!
Just like the song, the dilemma is 'Should I stay or should I go?' Staying on the property means enjoying a comfortable home with all of its abundant amenities including a floating dock system just a mere few feet away from the house (New construction has to be 75 feet back, however, this home is just a stone's throw from the water).
Of course, those that like to get up and go can get to L.L. Bean and the Freeport outlets within approx 25 minutes. Bowdoin College and downtown Brunswick are about 10 minutes away. Cook's Lobster House is just minutes away on the next island. Edgecomb Pottery is always an artful destination. Lots of day trip opportunities to Camden, Rockland, Wiscassett, Damiscotta, Popham Beach and Reid State Park. Music and theatre performances are at Bowdoin. A 10-cinema movie complex right at Cook's Corner about 10 minutes away. Starbucks is 10 minutes for those of you who love your lattes!
To get here, drive 2.5 hours from Boston, 40 minutes north of Portland
