Charming Maine cottage on a bluff overlooking the Penobscot bay and Islesboro

Our cottage is situated in the charming and historic Town of Temple Heights.

Temple Heights is located on a tiny bluff directly overlooking Penobscot Bay and Isleboro island. We have seaside access and a pebble beach located across the road. There are awesome views of Islesboro and the bay from many of the cottages rooms.

You'll be witness to spectacular morning sunrises and incredible evening skies. Let the sound of the ocean put you to sleep. Enjoy the local lobstermen tend to their traps. Take the ferry (7 minute drive) over to Islesboro beaches for a picnic. Golf at the nearby golf course. Take a walk to nearby coves. This cottage is an ideal place to slow down and relax.

We are located between Belfast and Camden, and just two minutes from Route 1. You can enjoy day sailing on a windjammer or a real lobster boat. You may want to spend the day shopping and dining in historic Camden or visit the many attractions in the area. A short 1 ½ hour drive to Acadia National Park

Parking at cottage: Parking in Temple Heights is on the street. Most, if not all the cottages have a right of way in front and in the back of the cottage. Cars will at times park in the right of way just to unload supplies. Parking at the cottage is convenient and you can pull up next to the cottage. Do not park in front of any right of way or on the lawn/yard. Thank you.

About Owner

My wife and I and children live in NJ and summer as much as we can at our Maine cottage every summer and fall. We renovated and raised the cottage and have created a family jewel on the coast of Maine. Each morning throughout the year, our kids take turns crossing off their calendar countdown for our spring and summer cottage memories to begin!

Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Owner chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

Our little spot is perfect for either relaxing inside, around the campfire in the back yard, or to utilize it as a home base to drive the coast. Many of our past renters chose our cottage for its location but found it hard to leave the cottage. The beach is a 2 minute walk, filled with sea glass, mussels, star fish and so many treasures. We have a kayak to explore the coast line and take you to the great swimming areas of kellys cove or saturday cove.

What makes this cottage unique

cozy. close to Bar Harbor (45 min), Camden (8 miles), and swimming lakes inland. Our swing that overlooks Islesboro is perfect for that morning cup of coffee or late night glass of wine. Our fire pit out in the back yard (we keep firewood ready for you) is usually the highlight of everyone's stay. When we are at the cottage it IS the community spot to enjoy each other.

Perfect for our family

  • 4 of 5

This cottage, and in fact this little enclave on the edge of a hill, was just perfect for us (family of four, two kids that are 7 and almost 5). The cottage is charming and met all of our needs--I thought it was going to be small but it was a great space, both outside and in. It was the vacation we wanted: we slept in late, ate too much, and enjoyed a fun activity each day. The beach is a quick walk and we found lots of interesting rocks and sea glass. Belfast, Lincolnville and Camden are all close and have lots to do. Mount Battie is a must. It was a wonderful week. We all left wishing for "Just one more day!"

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's second visit to Maine and Just One More Day cottage. Our kids just can't get enough of the cottage and the proximity to the beach. From enjoying the sunrise each morning peeking over the horizon, a quiet cup of coffee on the porch swing, to Lobster dinners on the picnic table and campfires in the fire pit, this is our favorite place to vacation. From the porch swing you can enjoy watching lobster boats casually coast through Penobscot Bay. The cottage has literally everything you could need, and lots of extras for playing down at the beach. The absolute best, though, are the property owners and how they make you feel not only welcome, but part of their family. You will not find a more inviting host.

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were rained out of our camping trip, and were able to reach our host and book for the same day. It was a deep relief, and he was wonderfully accommodating. We came in quite late and missed the turn, and were able to text back and forth to get directions. The home was warm and charming with so much space to relax and hang out. In the morning, we got to check out the porch hammocks, swings, and gorgeous views. We also accidentally used a neighbor's kayak, who was very sweet and generous to let us use his (it was a double). Overall, as a queer woman of color I felt very comfortable in this community. And we loved the firepit outside that allowed us to still have a campfire. I would definitely stay here again.

More than what I expected

  • 5 of 5

This was the final trip of 3 I took my daughter on for her graduation gift. I had been to upper Maine many years ago and didn't care for it, so I didn't have high hopes. The 3 destinations we traveled were areas my daughter always wanted to see. We landed in Portland and drove the 2 hours to the cottage, and the scenery was breathtaking. The cottage was so cute and homey, we immediately felt comfortable. Everything you needed and more was there. The owners were so hospitable and kind-hearted. It's a 15-20min drive to food or shopping, but it was nice not to be right in all the attractions. Plan an entire day at Bar Harbor, it is stunning! Get there early enough to take a ferry to whale watch, and go to Acadia park for hiking. Your camera will never really capture the entire beauty of the landscape. We didn't have enough time to enjoy the kayaks or have a fire, which made us sad, but we found plenty of treasures on the beach to take home. Only disappointment is that we didn't stay longer​. My daughter is already plotting her wedding, (way in the future), in the area after falling in love with all the wild Lupine. Perfect way to end our vacation.

Beautiful little cottage with very clean, caring and helpful owners.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a quintessential New England property. Beautifully maintained by people that clearly love their little cottage. We felt so welcome in this clean and charming place. Sitting on the front porch swing sipping coffe was sublime. There was no wifi and not great reception on the tv so a perfect place to relax and reconnect with loved ones. I attended a conference in Belfast (5-10 min drive) and my husband went fishing at a few beautiful "ponds" recommended by our very friendly neighbor.

We would love to return with our children and there is plenty of room for both of them.

Idyllic home perfect for a true Maine experience.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend in late September. The house is stocked with everything you need. If your plans are to see Bar Harbor, Belfast, Rockport, and Camden, this house is in the perfect location. At the end of our busy days of seeing the sights, we loved coming back to the peaceful firepit and outdoor grill. This home is located in a neighborhood with beautiful views of the bay. We never saw a neighbor, and loved the boat house and availability of the kayaks. What a treat. We would highly recommend this vacation rental!
