Nestled between Stovers Preserve Beach and Potts Point Preserve is our coastal retreat in Harpswell, Maine.
You will be greeted with fresh flowers, wine, cheese and a variety of Maine-made specialties. Breakfast is provided for the first morning with pancake mix, bagels, eggs, butter and wild blueberry jam. Crisp, cool sheets, comfortable beds, waffle robes and slippers will be awaiting you when you retire. Turkish towels and spa products will make your bathing a special treat. Air conditioning and heat are easily accessible to assure comfort every day of your stay.
As you will see when you travel down the peninsula that reaches far into Casco Bay, there are ocean views everywhere you look. This newly renovated 2 bedroom (1 bedroom on 1st floor and 1 bedroom in spacious loft), 1 bath home gives you a true Maine experience. You will overlook the Cribstone Bridge, a National Historic Monument and the only of its kind in the world! Built with massive granite blocks which allow the tides to move freely through the bridge. The views of the islands and waters of Casco Bay make the trip down Harpswell Neck, with 220 miles of coastline, the memory of a lifetime. Harpswell has incredible hiking trails through pristine woods; many with sweeping ocean views.
We will give a free 3 hour daytime boat tour or sunset cruise on our 24 foot Grady White with every reservation 3 days or longer (weather permitting- safety first). Seeing Harpswell from the water is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The property is located above the garage and the owners live on the property in a different building. This is a true home away from home with a full-sized kitchen, an island for chatting while cooking, a lovely bath/shower with a rain shower head, an enormous porch and plenty of room inside in case it rains. There is a full-sized washer and dryer so you can travel back home or to your next destination with clean clothes! A short walk down our private road gives you an oceanside deck where you can read, relax or get some cool air and sun. Enjoy nature at its best, beautiful views and a private place to relax and call your own. As your hosts, we'll make sure that you have everything you need for your visit and we assure that the visit will be extraordinarily memorable!

The Drifting Inn was even cuter in reality than it looks in the pictures! It was also a cozy and easy place to stay for 10 days, with a full (and fully-equipped) kitchen, large private bedroom, and great loft with a second bed, desk, and cozy chairs. We loved the location, just a 7 minute walk from the beach, an easy walk, bike, or drive to a variety of lobster shacks, trailheads, and just 20 minutes from the friends we were visiting in Brunswick and Bath. Joe and Lynn were amazing hosts and gave us fun local tips that really enhanced our trip. We'd happily stay here again.

5/5 Stayed Jun 2018
Absolutely beautiful and Joe and Lynn were very responsive. There was everything you need and more. They had cheese and crackers, a bottle of wine, fruit, coffee, creamer, and two coasters for souvenirs. It was our first stop on our road trip of Maine and was our favorite place we stayed. Will definitely be going back to stay. Thank you again for your hospitality.

Sweet spot in Harpswell
We loved the long weekend at Driftingin. Nice place to be able to explore several islands and preserves. Spent one day at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens touring the gardens and walking on trails. Thanks Joe and Lynn
