About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 comfortably

The Lilac cottage is a sun-filled vacation delight. Windows on all four sides flood it with light yet the open floor plan allows for quiet areas. It has an extended deck surrounding the front of the cottage, a back yard eating area with gas grill and picnic table as well as a shed for the hobby equipment. The cottage is tucked away on a cul-de-sac with tremendous privacy and a great view of the water from the deck and master bedroom. Stroll to the ocean located across street, go fishing off the fish pier, hike and bike on the island, or drive to Port Clyde, 8 miles away, for the ferry to Monhegan Island. Rockland, also eight miles away, is a center of art featuring the Farnsworth museum and the Wyeth art center. There is a life guarded beach at Lake Chicawaugie, also in Rockland. And be sure to feast on locally caught lobsters while watching the spectacular sunsets.

Discount given for more than a weeks stay:

Pets are welcome. This cottage is on the edge of a quarry so children would need to be supervised at all times. The house is all on one floor. we will have to measure the doors to see if they are wide enough for wheel chairs. Because the cottage is on a hill, it might prove difficult for people who have trouble walking.

Not the Ritz!

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is charming and private however it should be noted that it sits directly adjacent to Maine's largest lobster shipping company that runs 24/7.

It was clean and cozy, the beds were comfortable. There were a few drawbacks. The kitchen lighting was quite inadequate with missing bulbs in the track lights and no switch could be found for the light over the sink. And there was no toaster or lobster pot.

My biggest concern with the stay is that there were no emergency contact numbers and three emails to the owner went unanswered. Fortunately we did not have any emergencies but it's always nice to have a local contact number just in case.

If you are looking for the Ritz, this is not your place. If you are looking for a nice private setting and don't mind a "work in progress", it's adequate.

Avoid staying at this property!

  • 1 of 5

The property did not have clean linens and the owner falsely claimed that we had arrived 24 hours before our rental was to begin. The two bedrooms did not have any curtains on some of the windows. There was no key provided to lock the property. The only bathroom did not have a sink, except for a small sink attached to a wall inside the rear corner of the shower. I decided not to stay at the property due to the above issues.

Owner's Response: I need to respond to this review! These people arrived a day early while the cleaners were in the middle of cleaning. I explained to them that thats why the sheets were on the floor and if they wanted to wait I would have her finish that day rather than the next day, which is when she comes back with fresh linens, and they could stay for free that night. They said they would rather get a hotel for the night and come back. The next day they called and demanded their money back because they found a cottage they liked better. I explained that I don't refund money within 30 days and they said "We will see about that" and hung up. They cancelled with their credit card thus ripping off funds from me and also from Homeaway, who is seeking legal action against their credit card company.Then they left a horrible review to satisfy their mean need for revenge.
