Beautiful Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage was even more beautiful than it shows in the photos. Everything was ready for me to move right in with my clothes and groceries. The cottage is immaculate, and there is plenty of room for overnight guests. The views from the cottage are enchanting at all hours of the day, and the sunsets are especially stunning. For someone who enjoys the beach and nature walks, this is a good location. For active families, sailing and tennis is nearby. The owner is easy to work with. I highly recommend this lovely place.

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate. It's a comfortable home located near the water. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners, Mike and Lucette, live next door and were readily available when I had a problem with the door getting in (not their fault, I thought the door was locked when it wasn't). I'd rent this property again. The house is located on the good beach side of the island and there's access to the beach from the property. The house is located about a mile from the ferry where there are a few good places to eat, drink and a well-stocked market.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Sunset Cottage July 2012. In fact I was prompted to write this when I started to think about when to come back this coming summer. The upstairs bedroom (with a deck looking out to Casco Bay) is perfect for a couple. While we did not use them, small bedrooms on the main floor seem right for kids. I could recommend the cottage just on having an outside shower. What a pleasure!

Easy walk to "town" and the ferry (hmmm, whether to take the ferry to Portland for dinner, or buy lobsters at the dock. Such tough choices...). One alert. As a recovering lawyer I was put off by the lease terms, which could be abused by an owner/caretaker. But Mike and the owner were easy to deal with. This is not a fancy cottage, but I have nothing to good things to say about it. Please don't book the entire summer; I haven't made my reservations yet....
