A wonderful vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a fantastic week at Searose Cottage. Our stay began with a lovely gift bag from Stonewell Kitchen, including a bottle of wine.The cottage was extremely well equipped; games, books, linens, beach chairs, pool lounges and even a gate for our toddler! From every room there was a beautiful view with the sound of the ocean and gentle breezes. The beach was steps away across the lawn and meadow and after the beach, we headed for a dip in the pool. We had a great time, walking the beach and the rocks and relaxing. Kittery and US 1 were not far away really, but it seemed like we were far far away from the hustle and bustle.

To paraphrase my grandson, "when can we come back to the Maine cottage?" Highly recommend a stay at Searose cottage from all of us.

Fabulous views and gorgeous neighborhood - rental could use a little TLC for the price

  • 3 of 5

First of all, a giant Thank You to the Lord family for allowing us to have our 3 dogs with us. That was so wonderful of them. We loved the location and the salt water pool.... and the ocean breezes in all the rooms. The owners also left a bottle of wine and a generous gift bag when we departed. So kind! On the accommodations side, things were a bit less than I expected, given the rental fee. The refrigerator needed a lot of cleaning upon arrival, the outdoor grill was dirty, doorknobs falling off in the downstairs bedroom, no stand up shower in the upstairs bath, poor outdoor lighting where you enter, a stove that we couldn't get to work properly, chairs in the sun room that weren't sturdy, the welcome/info book was sloppily done, and it had dated and hodgepodge decor and fixtures throughout. I would expect that at a cheaper rental, but not at the fee paid.

We loved the location and the kindness of the owners, but felt a bit let down.

Owner's Response: Glad to be able to assist with your stay; the use of the sunroom and your crates worked out well for the pets to come along! In preparing for guests arrival, the refrigerator and grill are included for inspection and cleaning, we will be sure to double check the bottom shelf and use the self clean feature on the grill. Regarding the outside lighting, we are satisfied to hear that the new LED lights are providing ample light. We did find one seat in the sunroom that needed to have a screw reattached- thanks for pointing that out- all are in good working order. Inspection also shows all appliances to be operational. The website pictures that were taken do show our guests what to expect upon arrival as far as furnishings and decor; it also notes a shower/sauna downstairs and a tub in the upstairs bathroom. We typically update the guest book at the beginning of the season along with review of the property for other miscellaneous maintenance required. In 2016 we painted indoors and outside as well and recently have updated the sunroom with an additional comfortable sofa (sleeper). Thanks for staying in our guest cottage home!

Perfect respite

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so charming and delightful, and was complete with everything you could need for a comfortable visit. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The cottage was so clean and the grounds immaculate and well-maintained. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and provided us with excellent customer service. I have recommended this vacation spot to several friends and relatives, and would love to visit again.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Searose cottage is situated on beautiful Seapoint Beach. The views are spectacular with the Isles of Shoals and rocky Maine coastline right outside your window. The cottage is quaint, but spacious and tastefully decorated like a French country house. It is well-equipped and includes a sauna. We stayed in the off-season and took advantage of daily walks on the beach. Kittery Point is a fabulous seaside town with scenic vistas, & lighthouses It is a great place to relax with the family or as a couples get away. The restaurants are exceptional and the location is very close to attractions and great restaurants both in Kittery and Portsmouth. We had great dining experiences at Anneke Jans, Black Birch and AJ's for wood grilled pizza. We highly recommend Searose Cottage. The owner Nancy was great

and very responsive to our requests. She has created a great sanctuary and unique experience.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

We spent the off season at Sea Rose Cottage and found it to be everything we had hoped for: retreat, muse, and oasis. No matter when you're planning your stay, the location is superb: just a stone's throw from Seapoint Beach, with a breathtaking view of the open Atlantic with its shifting tides, seabreezes, gulls’ cries, lobsterboats plying, glorious sunrises, and sunsets reflected on evening clouds. Yet only minutes from great restaurants, shopping, and culture - if you can tear yourself away.

The cottage is fully and delightfully furnished…just bring your clothes, camera, and journal (there are some great reads already on the shelves). Nancy has thought of all the little things to make your stay comfortable, from fine linens to a well-equipped kitchen, from cozy bedding to beach chairs to outdoor grills.

We spent the majority of our time in the sunroom, with its beautiful natural light and commanding view of the ocean. Step out the sliders to the stone patio with Adirondack chairs for lounging, surrounded by the owner's beautiful perennial gardens. The smell of roses and the sea perfumes the air, and you are serenaded by songbirds and the lull (or crash) of waves on the berm.

Our family's time here was incredibly peaceful and restorative. We can't recommend it - or the gracious owner, Nancy - highly enough. You won't want to leave (we sure didn't). - The Fraziers

Car: necessary

A perfect summer retreat area that offers something for everyone. Explore and enjoy the local beaches and seaside towns along the coast of southern Maine and New Hampshire. Activities range from antique hunting, bird watching, biking, golfing, kayaking, and surfing to name a few. Ideally situated 75 minutes to Boston, Ma. and within an hour to Portland, Me. For those mountaineers, two hours drive has you in the White Mountains.
