'The Studio' is a large room attached to our home, Old Comfortable. It is a private place approached by its own stairway. It has its own key so it can be locked. It offers an L-shaped space, which includes a sitting area with a view of the ocean, cable TV, a queen-size bed and an eating area. The eating area includes an under-the-counter refrigerator. It is outfitted with dishes and linens. There is no stove or kitchen sink. The bathroom is generous in size with a fiberglass shower. This space is best suited for someone looking for accommodations with more personality than a motel room but short of a full-size house. In the summer a local fish store will steam lobsters for you, which you can bring back to eat in the studio or you can use the outdoor charcoal grill. We used this space while our year-round house was being constructed. It is suitable for one or two people. There is 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 two people, please inquire about our Guest House across the street.
Feel so blessed to have found this little gem....very charming and peaceful. Apartment was clean and efficient. Bed sheets blow in the ocean breeze before they are ironed and put away for next renters. Beautiful grounds & flowers well maintained and views.....a short stroll brings you to a pebble beach! Lynn & Bill were super hospitable even including us on a trip on their lobster boat. We have check-marked this as one of our favorites and intend to be back soon!
We had a wonderful time staying at this property! It was just what we were looking for; quiet and cozy with gorgeous views and a very well kept property. The studio was small, but perfect size for two people and maintained well and stocked with just about everything we needed during our stay.
Lynn and Bill were wonderful hosts! Very friendly and sweet and always willing to offer suggestions around the area. We were able to book very easily at the last minute and it was a great place to stay overall. We look forward to making it back that way sometime in the future!
This studio is amazing, we felt at home right away. We even saw a bald eagle roosting in the tree outside our window. Bill and Lynne are fantastic hosts, very helpful in getting to know the area. We cannot recommend Old Comfortable highly enough, it is the most beautiful place to stay. Don't hesitate to make your booking, this place is the best.
We can't thank Lynn and Bill enough for letting us spend time in the studio! It was perfect. The studio was private, immaculate, and cozy. The grounds are so beautiful and lead to an amazing dock, rocky shore and gorgeous views. We did wander down the road to the beach one day, but preferred the beauty of "the backyard" best. We will be back! Great mini-vacation, thanks for your hospitality
This was our 2nd trip back to Old Comfortable and again we were able to relax, disconnent and have an amazing time.
Each day we would do our 20 mile bike road along the scenic roads with views to the water, in the later morning head to the beach and of course bring amazing lobster rolls for lunch with us from Wallace's Grocery just a few minutes away. In late afteroon we would visit a long farm stand for amazing berries, corn and baked goods and then take short adventures to various local sites and back in early evening to buy our lobsters right from the lobsterman at the town dock and grill along with corn on the host's Webber charcoal grill. HINT-get the cowboy charcoal wood instead of brickettes at Wallaces to cook with.....you will never eat a lobster any other way! We enjoyed our meal by the host's dock and watch the sun set with a good glass of wine too!
Lynn and Bill are charming hosts and I strongly urge folks who want a quiet retreat for the crazy world to stay. We are already planning our 3rd visit back for next summer! Thanks so much Lynn and Bill for everything!
We stayed at Old Comfotable in their studio this weekend. Our room was super cute, filled with New England charm, as well as modern amenities ( flat screen TV with cable and free Wi Fi )The studio has beautiful hardwood floors and is decorated in traditional Maine style, complete with lighthouse designs on the table cloth and maps of Maine on the wall. An array of cast iron odds and ends adorn the stairs leading up to the rooms. The view did not disappoint! The grounds are beautifully landscaped leading up to a private dock. The owner Lynn was friendly, personable, and professional. She provided use with quaint stories of the area and its people, and was helpful regarding attractions and shopping. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet , clean place to get away and enjoy all the beauty of Maine.
Guests at Old Comfortable never run out of things to do. Within 20 to 40 minutes away, you can find several restaurants, museums, shopping, lighthouses, movies, theaters, concerts (such as the Blues Festival in July), swimming and golf. Also nearby are boat tours and day sails on a windjammer. In August, we have the annual Lobster Festival, the Antique Fair, the Maine Boats and Harbors Show and the Blueberry Fair.
