Friendship Cottage Rental Photos and Description

--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.

Martin Point Cottage on Pond with Ocean Access

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!!

Beautiful Maine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Martin Point Cottage and loved it. First off, it's a gorgeous location - quick walk across the street to the ocean, beautiful view out the back of a pond. It's great for homebodies - close distance to hiking trails, fully equipped kitchen that wasn't a pain to cook in, and enough space for multiple people to spread out. And it also worked well as a jumping off point to explore coastal Maine - not too long a drive to Rockland or Owl's Head. Lynn was wonderful and showed us around. Hopefully, we''ll make it back soon!

Absolutely loved it

  • 5 of 5

The listing explains most of what you need to know. I can confirm that the kitchen was organized, clean, and had everything you might want to prepare a meal. Plus, there was a window over the sink! The sitting area fine. The screened in porch was larger and had a view to a large, romantic looking pond.

The main bedroom was pretty, the bed luxurious. We kept our suitcases in the second room, which was cute with a twin bed.

It was a seven minute walk to the beach, and for some reason, the water at low tide was teeming with lobsters! We also hiked around the point in a nature reserve. The reserve was within easy walking distance, too. A tennis court was free and there was no competition, even in high season.

Be aware that there is little cell phone connection unless you can find the "right" spot. Wifi, TV reception, hot water, etc. were excellent in the cottage. There is a large fan over the bed, better than air conditioning.

If we go back to Friendship, which we may, we'll try for this cottage first.

Owner's Response: Oops, tennis court may have appeared free, but you aren’t supposed to use it unless you are a member of the tennis association and reserve a time slot at the community house.

Well Kept and Loved.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage! Wonderful, thoughtful people! Everything is provided, very clean. It was an easy drive to museums, galleries, nature and trails right at the doorstep, walk to the beach. Cozy as could be on a rainy day. I wanted to stay longer.
