This cottage was very comfortable and pleasant with good light and country charm

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a grand time reconnecting in this intimate country cottage. We spent a lot of time on the back deck enjoying the view across Hatch Cove. Late night card games at the kitchen table were great fun.

Private & Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week never having visited Maine before. House is comfortable, great view and well equipped kitchen. Deck is the best place to be for sunsets and stargazing. Deer on property and wonderful bird watching (Ospreys, gulls, sparrows etc.) There are 3 bedrooms, 2 upstairs and one downstairs, beds are comfortable. Extremely private property. Plenty of local information and guides to area in the house. We hiked the Dice Lighthouse in Castine and the Witherly Woods - if you like hiking. We sailed on the Guildive sailboat docked downtown Castine - it was fantastic - book it first!!! Great sail and view of Castine. Talk to the Captains - Zander & Kate - a wealth of local knowledge and experience in Castine. Holbrook Island Sanctuary State Park for hiking, photography and history, very interesting. Visit the museum in Castine. Go to Ft Knox and up to the observatory in Prospect (top of the bridge). For Lobster Rolls and live lobster go to Bayview in Pennobscot.

Perfectly Tranquil Maine Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Wild Rose Cottage is a great place to stay in Castine. The house is wonderfully charming and is full of bright natural light. The view of the tidal river is so tranquil we never wanted to leave. The house is very private and despite being near route 166 it was very quiet. Constance the owner was accessible and very helpful. If you are looking for a lovely place to stay and do not need water access this house is it. My family will definitely be back.

Lovely stay in a charming quiet cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay at Wild Rose cottage. It's clean, well maintained in a lovely area of Maine. The house is off of the main road into Castine (you can hear some road noise in the distance), and there's a nice beach a few minutes away. The house overlooks meadow and is surrounded by lovely trees and birdsong. The cove is seen from the deck which gets lots of afternoon sun. There are three large bedrooms and two full baths. The kitchen is well equipped and the living area has a nice view. The Blue Hill peninsula is fun to explore with great scenery and art galleries and restaurants. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of Maine.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful cottage on the water. The scenery was beautiful and we felt like we were on our own little private island yet only minutes from town. Every convenience was provided. We had a wonderful stay and were in close proximity to many beautiful sites to explore such as Acadia Natl Park.

Delightful home in Castine

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this comfortable, welcoming home. The house and property were exactly as shown in the pictures; in fact we found several of the rooms to be larger than we expected from their photos. The house was very light, with large windows; the location was quiet and peaceful; and the view of Hatch Cove was lovely. The beds were extremely comfortable, as was the seating, and the kitchen was well-stocked.

An earlier reviewer commented negatively on several things, none of which we found to be a problem. The wifi worked well, as did all the appliances, and there were certainly no issues with low tide smell. The house was a typical rural New England vacation home; perhaps the reviewer expected something different but it was exactly what we had hoped for.
