On one of two separate visits to Tenants Harbor, Maine, I stayed at the Balsam Cottage. This large comfortable cottage is sheltered by the trees that offer privacy. The kitchen is well appointed with all necessary cooking utensils including a lobster pot. I enjoyed the local village and scenic harbor and ocean views while on quiet walks. Nearby (a few miles down the road) is a great beach called Drift In. It was on the way to Marshall Point Lighthouse and museum. Next time I visit, I plan to take the ferry to Monhegan Island where many artists including the Wyeths found their inspiration and did a lot of painting… Reply: Dear Carol, We appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you again, soon
Tenants Harbor is a lovely small coastal town with many great places to visit nearby.
Home is tucked away in a peaceful forest setting just a minutes walk to the coast. Wrap around deck was perfect for morning coffee and evening star gazing. Multiple windows to let the sun in and cool breeze roll in. The sounds of bells from nearby lighthouses were very soothing with added relaxation.
Home was very spacious and very cozy.
Definitely within walking distance to general store and the happy clam restaurant in tenants harbor.
Highly recommend this home.
Special thank you to the owners for accommodating us!
There is nothing better than leaving a city and staying at a place like this quaint cottage. It was the perfect home base to go on day trips and come back to total quiet and calm. The house was clean and tidy and was the perfect place to stay. Also! In walking distance to a few places nearby including the General Store and East Wind Inn. Would come back in a flash!
Tenant's Harbor was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The large home was in a wooded, private location and was clean, roomy, and very accomodating. The lobster pots in the kitchen were perfect for cooking the fresh lobster from Ann, the "fisherwoman", at the Cod End fish market. Kayaking with the seals in the harbor in Rockland was a real treat (Breakwater Kayak tours). Also, the abundant fresh blueberries in the summer were delicious and made the best pies (the pies were found at several area farmer's markets).
There were so many places to visit within a 1 hour drive that we would love to come back for another stay to see more of this beautiful area of Maine. Thank you, Miriam, for always being kind and accomodating whenever we spoke.
We had a wonderful time in Maine. As with the weather, the house was perfect! We loved walking around and enjoying the sights of the harbor, the short drive to Marshall's Point Lighthouse and catching the ferry to Monhegan Island. The lobster pot came in handy as we took advantage of the fresh lobster available. We look forward to coming back and staying again at the Balsam Cottage.
The center of the village of Tenants Harbor is a leisurely 10-minute stroll on a quiet road. There, a small grocery, library, post office, public landing and a few restaurants can be found.
Enjoy a scenic drive, or bike the back roads through the small coastal communities. Be sure to bring your camera.
Drift In public beach, Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum, and the ferry to Monhegan Island are a short drive away. Visit the Farnsworth Museum with its collection of Wyeth paintings in nearby Rockland, and The Owl's Head Transportation Museum on your way back.
