Guestbook comments from the owner

“Your view…how do you leave to go home? I sit at your kitchen table surrounded by high tide and gorgeous grey swells breaking in front of me. I feel as if I’m sitting in a watercolor painting looking across at the oyster colored rocks, the stand of pines, the curve of beach…truly lovely. We are charmed with the cottage. From the instant that we walked in we noticed the little details that speak volumes…the tree branch towel bars, the stone fireplace, the hidden air vents under the beams. We’d love to talk about returning.”

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Best view in Maine overlooking rocky coast and a quick walk to numerous beaches, some sandy, some rocky, and some covered with tumbled rocks and interesting shells. The house itself was perfect for four adults and two kids with an efficient kitchen, roomy bedrooms, large great room, and excellent shower. Can't beat the view from the deck. We saw wild dolphins almost every day and saw a seal one morning. On our daily walks we almost always spotted deer. The IPA neighborhood is friendly and very well maintained. Despite being part of an association, the way the house is placed feels very private. Already booked again for next year for a week and seriously considering booking for a second week.

Cottasge was not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

We left early and ended up at a different place on the coast as the cottage was not what we expected. I was asked by the owner if everything was OK. My response was:

Hi Carl,

Nothing came up per say. The ocean setting is beautiful. The cottage just was not what we were expecting.

The refrigerator and freezer had such a strong smell of bleach that any food items we put in there absorbed that odor. Even the ice smelled like bleach. The bath towels smelled to me like smoke. The sheets didn't seem to have that odor though. The curtains were covered in water stains. Broken light fixtures, a cracked mirror on the floor, a broken door handle coming in, kitchen trash can lid was broken, stained, dirty carpets...that kind of thing. The oven was unusable for me because it clearly hadn't been cleaned. I was a little put off as well, by the mouse bait blocks randomly around the cottage; too visible for me. They really should be hidden. An extra role of toilet paper would have been nice. I would have brought my own had I known there would be only half a role when we came in and no other paper products there at all. For a week’s stay, I think an extra role of toilet paper and a roll of paper towels should be expected.

I definitely can see that efforts have been made to upgrade some of the furniture and fixtures though and the Wi-Fi was nice in the evening for my daughter. The deck is a nice addition. (or maybe it is just newer)

I can also see, that it was likely a lovely place once upon a time. I am not unfamiliar with waterfront living, so do understand the wear on a beach front home, especially ocean front. Rental properties can be tricky. For me, cleanliness and properly working/ functional fixtures and such, are key. I don't mind older houses, but they should not be in disrepair and they have to be clean.

Please do not take my comments personally. They are truly meant as constructive comments. While it is an amazing location, I will not be returning. Once you have verified the cottage is in as rented condition there will be no need to hold on to the security deposit for next year, but thank you for the offer.

Sincerely,

Sarah

The owner never responded to the above email. I did receive my deposit shortly after the last day I was supposed to have been there.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed that Sarah did not enjoy her rental with us. Our cottage is small and rustic and located on the rocky coast of Maine. It's heat sources are a wood burning fireplace and wood stove. It is cooled by onshore sea breezes. Most of our renters enjoy it's charm and location and many return year after year.

Our recent stay at the cottage was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Maine. We could not have had a better experience all around. The owners were very helpful with pre- arrival questions, the house was ready and in perfect condition for our stay. The area is beautiful, secluded and quiet.

The view says it all.

  • 5 of 5

A quaint rustic cottage perched on a rocky slope with beautiful ocean views, it was a great stay here. Very peaceful and relaxing and the near by beaches were great. The best place though was just sitting on the cottage deck and doing nothing...just enjoying the view. It was well worth the drive from Peterborough, Ont.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time here. We are a couple, husband and wife, and this was perfect size for us even though the house can easily sleep and accommodate more people.

The deck is gorgeous and we spent hours sitting rocking looking at the ocean.

We had a day of rain and got to experience a rough tide with incredible waves crashing against the rocks through the windows.

House is lovely inside, clean, airy and bright. Very efficient and easy to work in the kitchen, which is well stocked.

I had been to the area as a child and loved returning - Reid state park is beautiful but one can also go to multiple other area beaches and also take advantage of dining and shopping in Bath a short drive away.

This is my favorite area in Maine. Carl was great to deal with, fast communication, responsive to anything. Very happy overall. We have a lot of experience renting houses and can speak from experience.

Very Hard To Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the second week in October and it was spectacular! It was so quiet and peaceful this time of year. The vast ocean views from every room are so beautiful! We enjoyed the vivid sunrises each morning, watching the moon rise each evening, exploring the rocks and tidal pools around the house and beach, relaxing by the fire in the evenings, and listening to the waves crash continually. Even on a rainy day we weren't upset at all. The views at this place are something special, as we found ourselves staring out the windows to watch the huge swells crash into the rocks below. The house was kept clean and had all the amenities we wanted including plenty of fans for warm weather and a wood stove for the cold fall nights. The main bedroom was comfortable with magnificent views, which we can't stress enough. There are lots of little knick knacks around the house that add to the overall character. We also loved visiting Reid State Park (15 min drive), Acadia national park for the day (little over 3 hr drive), and Bath, ME for some good food and small shops (25 min drive). When the last day of our vacation arrived and the car was packed up, it was very sad to leave this home.
