Stunning views! My family loved being here because it is all about the view. The owner is friendly and answers questions quickly. The A-frame has a rustic cabin feel with most everything already there. Great Fireplace! Bring a comforter in Sept and Oct, the ones there will not be enough. We stayed there one week. The main areas are neat and orderly but out of the way places and corners could use more cleaning. The refrigerator and oven were very clean. The curtains are full of water stains and look bad but they do help block out the sun when needed. Very cool, moist air made drying clothes on the clothes line impossible. The new gas grill worked awesome! Overall, we had a very nice stay and wished we had stayed two weeks instead of one.
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
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:
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
The cottage is located on Indian Point, a private community on 400 acres of coastal woodland area on the southern tip of Georgetown Island. Amenities include private beaches, tidal sand flats, private roads and nature trails for walking and biking, and a rocky coastline and tidal pools to explore. Nearby dining will range from buying live or cooked lobsters just off the boats at the Five Islands Wharf to experiencing five-star dining at Grey Havens. The City of Bath is only 20 minutes away with shops, restaurants and the Maine Maritime Museum. Day trips to Boothbay Harbor or LL Bean in Freeport are only 45 minutes away.
