About Mary Ann Cousins

Mary Anne Cousins is the author of the four book saga entitled The Gildevon Chronicles written at this cottage. Her family has lived on Penobscot Bay since the 1600's. Her husband John Cousins owns Atlantic Designs, Inc. in Bangor, Maine, a twenty-five year business dealing in kitchen design and granite counter top fabrication. Johns ancestors were Maine settlers in pre-Revolutionary times. The Cottage has raised three generations of children providing many summers of family reunions, sailing lessons, horse show competition, and riding good books on the expansive oceanfront porch. We love our cottage and hope to share its charm with you and your family.

Why Mary Ann Cousins chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

This property is located steps from one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The vistas of the dawn are breathtaking, the charm of the community is endearing, and the good times of the Bay side, Belfast area are never to be forgotten. Generations have summered at this place with lots of happy memories.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is located just yards from the rocky shores of Penobscot Bay with dock access to the beach. Its proximity is between trendy Belfast with its art galleries and curio shops and the schooner fleet of Camden. Down the road, Lincolnville Beach provides restaurants with delicious cuisine. Golf is available at the Northport Country Club and the Hollywood Slots Casino in Bangor, Maine is an hour's drive up Maine's coastal route.

Beautiful, Relaxing Views of Penobscot Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing visit to this 1920's cottage on beautiful Penobscot Bay. I really loved watching the sailboats on the bay along with the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We still had intenet access to post pictures of our trip. I really wanted a cottage right on the water and this one was exactly the views I wanted not obstructed by other buildings or anything at all. The porch was definitely where I spent most of my time with family having meals talking about our side trips to Belfast and Camden. I was sad when we had to leave.
