About Barbara Plummer

My husband and I moved to Mid-coast Maine from the Washington My husband and I moved to Maine from Northern Virgina when he retired from the military. I was born in DC and lived in the DC area all my life never feeling like I was in the right place.

All of that changed when we left the rat race and moved to the small community of Bayside. In the village of Bayside the little cottages have names so we started thinking of names for our property and little cottage. Shortly after moving in I was standing at the window marveling at the view and a Bald Eagle landed in a tree in our front yard which overlooks Penobscot Bay. So the name Eagle's Landing became official. And since the cottage overlooks Kelly Cove we named it Cove Cottage. In 20 years this wonderful place I call home has never failed to disappoint.

Barbara Plummer purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Barbara Plummer chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful, unique, waterfront property when we first saw it because of the incredible view and access to Penobscot Bay. The house and cottage needed some TLC which we have done over the years but the location needed no improvement.

What makes this cottage unique

What I love most is the beautiful, peaceful setting. Feels very private but also not isolated. From sunrise to sunset it always offers opportunities to reflect on the wonders of creation and energize your soul .

Peaceful haven.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The quiet surroundings, the careful selection and placement of the beautiful objects and incidentals inside the cottage creating a comfy and interesting environment, plenty of windows to gaze out of in a leisurely fashion at the spring foliage and migrating songbirds, and the magnificant emerging gardens, the opportunity to observe the ins and outs of the daily tides, good areas to hike, a day trip to Acadia, a lighthouse to visit. An easygoing time. We hope to be back. Thanks.

Peaceful retreat on the water

  • 5 of 5

Our third year here was a peaceful getaway from daily hassles. The cottage is very comfortable, close to shopping and restaurants. A well supplied kitchen allowed us to cook in too. Can't wait to go back!

The cove cottage was very homey and comfy. The location was great and Barbara was such a nice person. It was everything we read about it and more. What a great place to rent. We WILL be back, maybe for even longer.

What a delightful week!

  • 5 of 5

I wondered if the cottage would be as cute as it looked on line. It was that and more! Had everything we needed for a very comfortable week. The bed was comfy, the kitchen nicely equipped, and the washer and dryer handy. Loved the sunrise views! The owner is a delightful lady who made us feel immediately at home. I would recommend to anyone who wants a laid back vacation in a pretty area. Just a heads up--you must walk down steep stairs to get to the kitchen area. Not a problem, but if you don't do stairs it would be. I hope we can return some time.

A Cozy Cottage with a Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from staying in this cozy cottage. The view of the Penobscot Bay is breathtaking. You can see the sun rise from your cottage each morning. The cottage is big enough for 3 people (one queen bed and a twin). She has a full kitchen equipped with all you need to prepare meals. We enjoyed having a washer/dryer there. The den downstairs is off the kitchen and seats 3 comfortably. She provides cable TV and internet there. The stairs are a bit steep, but very negotiable. The owner is a delight to visit with, and very helpful answering any questions you may have about the area. The property is a quiet and restful retreat. We will certainly be returning.

Most perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

My goodness, what can I say. We were fortunate to get this rental for one week. This was the perfect spot for us! We loved the setting. Very private but convenient to Belfast with a beautiful beach and view of Penobscot Bsy. We would love to come back and stay here again. The owner is so helpful and lovely. We could not have chosen a better rental! Thanks, Barbara! We enjoyed your lovely property SO much!

The nearby town of Belfast is a historic place with a lively downtown and many homes of architectural interest. John Villani rated Belfast as the 10th best small art town in his book entitled The 100 Best Small Art Towns(John Muir Publications). There is a large supermarket and farmers market on Fridays. There are good fish markets with lots of lobster, a bakery, several exceptionally good coffee shops offering fine baked goods and sandwiches, and a terrific health food store and co-op. There are several excellent restaurants, an ice cream shop, a wine shop and a candy shop! Also a local movie theater with vintage charm and current movies.

Other shops include women’s clothing, the Green Store selling health and environmental products, a very good kitchen shop and several well-equipped hardware stores. There are three bookstores, one offering a good collection of used books.

Numerous auctions and antique shops in the area.
