Why Bridget OBrian chose Harpswell
There is plenty to do in the area and yet you are off the beaten track. We love to sit with coffee and watch the birds in the morning and then have a cocktail on the little sunset deck in the birches in the evening. Restaurants are near or you can cook your own lobster or grill with great meats from the local butcher.

Wonderful, once you get there. Our main complaint was that we were unable to fully take advantage of our accommodations due to the need to being closer to campus. That 18-20min drive began to add up in burning up 3/4 tank of gas back and forth to Brunswick. Had plans to grill....no time, back to town. The view of the water was very soothing and I sure could have used a week of just taking that in. The lower level bedrooms were a surprise configuration and the stairs very steep and narrow and it was a little musty smelling but it has been a cool spring and probably not open to the fresh air. The 2nd bathroom in the ample laundry/pantry were a surprise but workable. Overall.....loved it!
We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Cove and if we ever make it back this way, would definitely stay here again.
We would welcome you back anytime! Glad you enjoyed our little spot in paradise.

It is called Sunset Cove for a Reason
The most relaxing house we stayed out on our trip. It was a really reclusive property that allowed for hours of exploration of the beach, back roads, and lobster shacks. Around the bend was a great convenience store that assisted with our needs, a short drive and Freeport was available to us. Really though, you come here to relax and have quality family time. I would say ~80% of our waking hours at the house were spent on the porch overlooking the gorgeous views of the bay, while the rest of the time was spent on the beach. With the 70 degree fall weather we experienced (LUCKY US!!!), it was just an unforgettable time. You can tell that this house has seen many memories made by the owners and they want other families to have the opportunity to make similar ones as well. This place was reminiscent of my childhood on a lake cottage... peaceful, expansive, adventurous, and other qualities that are hard to find in today's world. I couldn't recommend a place more for a family to come together and create their own adventures to remember!
2nd Time Here and Planning the 3rd
We can't say enough about this home. The location and the view are incredible. An easy ride to Freeport and Brunswick and every Lobster Shack around. One hour to Portland. The peace and privacy can't be beat. The owners are fabulous and easy to get a hold of and the house is clean and exactly as described. We absolutely love it.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay!

Amazing spot. Amazing sunsets.
This was our second year of having a two-week stay at Sunset Cove Cottage and we’ve already booked next year’s stay. The weather was so so this year but it didn’t matter; the entire stay still radiated peace. Rob and Bridget are wonderful, responsive hosts and the cottage has everything you need. We made lots of visits to Erica’s for lobster, discovered Gurnet’s for lobster meat to take home and make our own lobster rolls and fell in love with Pammy’s Ice Cream Parlor. Can’t wait to visit Harpswell again next year!
Quiet and Comfortable. Beautiful sunsets. Fenced yard was perfect for our two
