About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, open concept LR/Kit/DR, laundry room, sleeps 4

The Tadpool enjoys expansive 2nd floor southerly views of Lowell's Cove from the porch. Build by local shipswright, the interior feels like a ships cabin.   Walk to the water's edge, bike to the Cribstone Bridge, sun in the sand at Crescent Beach, or simply breath deeply of freshly mown lawns.  Whether you kayak, canoe, sail, motorboat, fish, walk, bike, run or simply wander, Casco Bay's multitude of islands, quiet coves, hushed forests, nature trails waving sea marshes and rocky shores will delight the senses. Orr's Island is part of the Town of Harpswell, just 12 miles from Brunswick and  Bowdoin College.  It is convenient to Bath (home of the Maine Maritime Museum),  Freeport (LL Bean), and just an hour from Portland. Easy day trips to Reid State Park, Popham's sandy Beach, Boothbay's bustling Harbor, Wiscasset's 40+ antique shops and the many area farmer's markets makes each day of your visit a pleasure.

Sweet spot for great value

The apartment is located in idyllic spot with views of ocean from the deck. Good place to relax and use as a base to explore the area.

Wonderful week at Cottage Aerie

  • 5 of 5

This was my second year renting from Peter. 1st time staying at Cottage Aerie early August. My husband, daugher and I plan to keep coming back year after year into the foreseeable future for the true R&R we get here. What could be better than falling asleep at night to the gentle sound of the water lapping the rocks just feet away from the cottage and waking up to stunning sunrises over the bay?

Peaceful week in Midcoast Maine

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great week at Cottage Aerie. The ship-like apartment is perfectly outfitted with everything you might need for a week away. Peter and his father (also Peter) were helpful and accommodating. I appreciated that Peter let us rent from a Monday through Saturday instead of sticking to the week minimum like many other owners. There is lots to explore in Harpswell but we also took trips to Boothbay, Wiscasset, Portland (2x), and Freeport. Bring beach chairs and water shoes for a summer visit. A car is necessary. Enjoy the beautiful air and scenery! Thanks Peter!

Our best trip to Maine yet

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this rental. Peter was a great host. Great communication before and after the trip.

My wife and our two boys (3 and 7) have a new favorite Harpswell rental. The place was clean, had plenty of space, kitchen was well-equipped. The ocean-view deck was the awesome. We loved having our morning coffee out there, and the gas grill was used multiple times for small family dinners.

Yard space for the kids to run around, and a very brief walk to the shore, plenty of parking, and all paved roads to the property. Laundry in the apartment was a huge plus.

We can't wait to come back again.
