Comfortable home great for extended family

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 stayed for 5 nights in August 2017. The house is comfortable, well-stocked, and has lots of enclosed/outdoor patio sitting areas with beautiful views overlooking the water. The basement playroom with table tennis, foosball, and air hockey provided a lot of fun for our 3 young sons. The owner couple is very friendly and communicates well. We highly recommend it.

Great house for two families

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great place to stay for two families of four. The game room in the basement was fun for the kids, and they explored the low tide in the cove. The house is very nice with a well-equipped kitchen. Meg was a helpful host. The house is about a 45-minute drive to Boothbay Harbor, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and the Maine State Aquarium. We did some small hikes nearby on Georgetown Island, walked to the wharf for lobster, and also visited the beach at Reid State Park, only a 5-minute drive away. I would highly recommend this place!

wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house and beautiful location on the cove. We woke early and watched the day begin over the cove from the sun room, with deer in the yard most mornings. The house was very clean and had all the amenities necessary. The rooms were comfortable and there was plenty of room for 7 people to find solitude or enjoy games together. I would definitely stay here again!

Our multi generation family stayed for a week in this lovely house. We had lots of room , so didn't feel crowded. We enjoyed trips to Booth Bay Harbor and environs, the beach at Reid State Park, Sewell Pond, and kayaking from the cove into the bay. We even bought lobsters off a local lobster boat!

The kitchen was the best- equipped I have ever experienced in a rental house. Great to have sharp knives, good quality pots and pans, matching China,enough silverware,and good appliances!

Meg was great to deal with.

Perffect Maine Coast vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a very memorable week at this beautiful, modern and immaculate home on Gott's Cove. The house is in a very quiet and secluded location but convenient to many points of interest. Reid State Park is just a 10 minute drive, with great sandy beaches and rocky coves that the kids loved exploring. The Five Islands dock and scenic harbor is walking distance - a nice stop for lobster rolls, fish dinners, ice cream or simply watching the boats. A general store for morning paper and other basic supplies is only 3 miles. Other points within driving distance include Wiscasset, Boothbay (kids loved the Boothbay Railway), Botanical Gardens, nature trails, etc. Meg was a wonderful hostess and went out of her way to make sure the house was just so for our visit. You will come away from a week at this house refreshed and in love with the Maine Coast!
