Happy as a Clam!! (or Should I Say Lobster)?
This property is exactly as advertised. The bedrooms are very spacious and have very comfy beds. The kitchen and dining room have the best view possible. It was so great to see seabirds and even a mink swimming by. Larry Crooker, the owner, was incredibly attentive to our needs. My husband wanted to do his own lobster boil and Larry had all of the necessary items and helped get everything set up. You couldn't ask for a nicer property owner to deal with. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who would like to experience the Maine coast. By the way, Popham Beach State Park was the true highlight of the trip for the little family members, as well as the adults. If you like beaches, you must go to Popham Beach!
Wonderful stay in Maine
Working with Larry has been a joy and his rental is breathtaking. Visiting family members have all fallen in love with the place. We hope that we will be able to make it back next year.
If you're looking for a low stress getaway this is the place. Beautiful views, lots of toys and just an overall feel good experience. And, you can walk nextdoor to get your fill of delicious lobster at a reasonable price.
The Best Yet!
For the past 10 years, we have been vacationing in Maine, each time in a different location and thereby, in a different house. This home is by far, the "best yet"! The accommodations and amenities (e.g. kayaks, bikes, game room, fire pit etc,) certainly exceeded our expectations. This is not merely a rental house, but truly a "home" that speaks to the great pride of its owner (Larry Crooker) in how it is furnished and maintained. Mr. Crooker could not have been more attentive to our needs and was tirelessly dedicated to our family having a superb stay in his home and Maine. Sunsets around the fire pit, steaming lobsters in the outdoor steamer, enjoying family adventures, and Larry's persistent consideration and care....priceless!!
Our Harpswell vacation week
This seaside setting is awesome. The house is spacious and inviting. Offered plenty of room and activities all 3 generations of my family for this past week.
We had a wonderful two weeks in Larry's home. We are big kayakers and had two weeks of great weather, able to kayak everyday. Larry was great and was there anytime we needed something. House was very well supplied and comfortable. Great fire pit and loads of fire wood for evening camp fires. A real gem.

IT MAY BE MAINE’S MOST SCENIC and unspoiled peninsula (or rather, one proper peninsula and several peninsul-ish islands ), but Harpswell’s not just for tourists. With a property tax rate among the state’s lowest, an innovative charter school in Harpswell Coastal Academy, and unparalleled access to woods and waters, Harpswell makes a great hometown. The demographic profile matches much of the coast, affluent and aging, but for all the second homes that speckle the trident-shaped community, there are still plenty of working lobsterboats bobbing in spots like Cundy’s Harbor and Mackerel Cove. The grassy field in front of the latter is one of 14 scenic and semi-wild preserves protected by the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust, one of Maine’s older and more active land conservation organizations. The Trust is much admired by Harpswellians for privileging not just preservation but also recreation — volunteers have built an impressive trail system across the properties, and the Trust partners with the Harpswell Recreation Department to release a handy annual guide to trails and water access.
Locals (and generations of visitors) breathed a sigh of relief in 2015 when new ownership took over Cook’s Lobster & Ale House on Bailey Island. Overlooking the famed Cribstone Bridge (its cobwork construction lets the tide come through), Cook’s went on the market in 2015, on the cusp of its 60th anniversary, and there was some question whether it would remain a restaurant. These days, you can grab a bar stool and some fried clams year-round and catch live music four nights a week in the summer, and the the legacy lobster shack’s periodic community fundraisers (Cook’s raised $10,000 for home heating assistance this winter) are emblematic of how salty, tight-knit Harpswell rolls.
