About the property

--2 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 3

The Guest House is an adorable three-season honeymoon cottage located on five acres across the street from our year-round home, Old Comfortable. It was completely rebuilt and refurnished in 1993. The screened-in porch overlooks a 14-acre wildlife pond, home to lilies and waterfowl. The Guest House does not have a view of the ocean, but guests are invited to share the view from the crow's nest and wharf in front of Old Comfortable. There is also a public beach within walking distance and a public landing for launching a boat/kayak nearby. Kayaks may be rented in Friendship village just five minutes away. Following a day of being on the salt water, arrangements can be made to wash off your equipment. If your group has more than three people, please inquire about our studio across the street.

This cottage is ideal for someone wanting to get away from it all with a lovely screened porch overlooking a nature pond. Access to deep water from owner's wharf across the street. The gallery kitchen is equipped for any type of cooking you might want to do. The beach is just a few minutes walk. Cable TV and Internet are provided.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage for a couple. Lynn & Bill have decorated it attractively and it had that Maine Coast feel. We used the cottage as "home base" and did a lot of sightseeing during the days. It is a little bit out of the main path and you have to drive about 9 miles to get back to route 1.... but we got used to it. Weather was perfect for this time of the year (did have 1 day when it drizzled a little). Property was clean and well maintained. Good value for the $. We would recommend the property to friends and would stay there again if we return to the area. Our only regret was that our schedule did not allow us stay there longer.

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in August for a week in Lynn’s cottage and we had a wonderful time there. The cottage is super cozy, perfectly located and better equipped as any other cottage I have rent. Lynn and her husband have been very friendly and supportive and we enjoyed each time we met. And finally the area with this fantastic landscape is awesome. We have a long way to Maine from Germany but I’m sure we’ll come back.

Charming, well-appointed cottage in lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this cottage more than we could have dreamed. The setting was perfect. We enjoyed sitting by the pond behind the house and watching the osprey dive. On the ocean side, an eagle flew in and landed in the pine tree behind us as a seal bobbed in the water. The slow pace of Friendship met our needs perfectly. Busy tourist towns are within easy reach, but we wanted to enjoy them as a day trip. The kitchen is so well stocked that it was easy to prepare fresh fish at home for dinner. The cottage is so well-appointed that we didn’t need a thing. The friendliness of the people, the hospitality of our hosts and the peacefulness of the setting made this a lovely stay. It really is comfortable. We can’t wait to come back.

Lovely, quiet and picturesque location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was as lovely as the picture and we would definitely stay there again.

We especially enjoyed morning coffee on the porch overlooking the pond or just taking a morning stroll. The kitchen was well equipped; the beds were very comfortable, and the hosts were very helpful and friendly.

We highly recommend this cottage for a couple seeking a Maine retreat.

The Cabin is our happy place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Loved the cabin. Lynn and Bill are very friendly and helpful. We had a very relaxing week. Look forward to next year's visit. Got to just sit by the ocean and watch the moon rise in the evening. Thanks again to Lynn and Bill.

Utterly Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time back to Lynn's lovely cottage and what a delight! As 2 hardworking professionals who want to escape our crazy hectic pace we love to go to Lynn's cottage and Friendship.

The cottage is so well equipped in all rooms, but particularly the kitchen....which is extra special for folks like us who love to cook! Each day we would buy 3 fresh lobsters directly from the lobstermen at the docks in town ( ask for Jessie), roast them on the Webber charcoal grill ( hint use the Cowboy Brand firewood charcoal amazing flavor so you will never boil again) would have 2 for dinner and save 1 for the next day to make our own lobster rolls to enjoy while at the beach. Lots of great local produce, berries and baked treats to purchase to round out our dinners. And for those who don't want to make their own lobster rolls go to Wallace's Market...a hidden gem for almost anything you could need and just a few miles away!

The cottage is much larger than it appears in photos and nicer too! Extremely clean, comfy and cute little gardens all around. With the 2 bedrooms we had a friend joins us for a few days and there was plenty of room for 3 adults.

Every morning I enjoyed my daily 6 miles walk, my husband road biked his 20 miles and we would have our lunch at the marvelous and very quiet beach just a few minutes away via a quick stroll.

We can't recommend this property enough and hope to return each summer for many, many years!!
