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.

So Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a lovely 2 days at this sweet cabin on a pond across the street from the ocean. It could not have been more homey or better-equipped, complete with anything we could have needed. Lynn and Bill were the perfect hosts....welcoming us with an anniversary card and homemade muffins! We enjoyed a tour of their magnificent home and grounds facing the ocean, as well as lively conversation about the arts, lobstering and bluegrass. Just a few passions of theirs....along with Lynn's beautiful photography. We certainly hope to be back for another visit!

A little piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Darling little cabin in the woods. We loved the forest quality when we sat on the back porch. Were amazed at the beauty when we sat on the jetty.

We will have warm memories of this special place and will share with our friends and family. Thanks Lynn.

best spot to relax

  • 5 of 5

We just come back from a week long stay in the cottage and our "batteries" are fully recharged, so to speak. The place has a perfect location, water view on both sides, and it is so completely relaxing. The air has a great fragrance of salty ocean and woods. Cottage is comfortable, kitchen very functional, I liked that it has a lot of windows, nice and bright. Lynn is very pleasant to deal with.

There is also a lot to do in the area, and you can find all kind of guides and brochures in the cottage.

We loved this vacation and hope to come back.

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Cottage at Old Comfortable. We opened the door and just let out a big sigh and relaxed. Everything is spotless, every possibly needed item is there (except food) from the tool drawer with tape and string to bedding and towels and dishes and pans and even a first aid kit. The screen porch is our favorite spot. We walked to the beach everyday and it was convenient to attractions in Rockland and Boothbay Harbor. Already thinking about a return trip!

Well cared for with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Martin Point Cottage Pond, a beautiful setting with spectcular views. The cattage is away from the hustle and bustle of all the tourists, yet close enough that everything we wanted to do was a close easy drive.

The cottage was very clean and well kept, with everything you could need stocked and in excellent condition. Lynn & Bill are wonderful hosts.

When we next visit Maine we will definately check to see if it's available again.

Owner's Response: Bill enjoyed talking about aircraft with you and Lynn enjoyed remembering her own trout fishing experiences while growing up along the Nepaug River in CT.
