Janet Collins-Haffey purchased this cottage in 1998
I love the area and the beauty. Love waking up early with the sun and listening to the waves. crash on the craggy shore.
The screened in porch is so comfortable and inviting ...I just love the bird house, my flower gardens. ... ocean!
Very cozy spot with a great location near the water. Very rural area so it is easy to unplug. The cottage has everything you need to unwind and relax.
Was a magnificent stay even though it was just a couple of days, which was my only regret. Cottage has everything you need and is nicely decorated. It is on a quiet street; though not secluded , it is definitely free of all the traffic and congestion most are looking to escape. That without being far off the beaten path, and still close to civilization's amenities when you want them. Is the perfect place to get away. Facilities are great. Screened porch is wonderful and ocean breezes fill the cottage with a delightful atmosphere. We really enjoyed our time there and would recommend a stay to anyone who asked. Will likely return for future stays.
What a beautiful Cottage in all the true senses of a great Maine getaway. Could not ask for more, from the porch with ocean views and a perfect dining spot, to the stroll to the bench at waters edge. Frequent walks around Pemaquid Point in both the evening and early morning for sunrise. Clean, crisp sheets and comfortable beds. Loved the deck , flower and vegetable/herb gardens in full bloom, and the outdoor shower. Close to sandy beach, Shaw's for lobster, and even a day trip to Rockland and Camden for hiking and shopping.
Thank You Janet for sharing your cottage with us ! We look forward to a return visit !

We really enjoyed the casual, relaxed atmosphere of the cottage. Found it just as described. No internet or t.v. makes it a great place to unwind. Owner was very attentive. Cottage was neat, clean and well maintained. Great screened in porch was wonderful rain or shine. Within walking distance to lighthouse and restaurant. Enjoyed tending the flowers. Enjoyed learning the history of Pemaquid which is preserved at the restored fort.
This Pemaquid Point cottage is very welcoming and in a lovely location. A comfortable bench at the end of a short path provided a perfect spot to sit and watch the tide come crashing in as the sun slowly set. Both sea and sunsets are also visible, through trees, from the living room and deck.
The cottage is very well equipped - books, games, binoculars, firewood, picnic basket, blankets etc, etc. The kitchen, though narrow, has everything anyone might want - including a lemon zester and a nutmeg grater!
The cottage was clean and well cared for - obviously a well-loved family vacation spot. Petunias & other flowers appeared to have been planted in the flower boxes shortly before we arrived (late May) and we made sure they had water during the warm, sunny days we were lucky to enjoy. It was early in the season so not all restaurants were open in the evening, but we called ahead and the Bradley Inn served us a marvelous dinner.
I'd highly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting a true get-away vacation - no television or wi-fi, but there is a strong cell phone signal if needed.
We had a great weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. One of the best relaxing times we have had in a long time. The cottage was everything and more. Would stay again with out a question.
Thank you to Janet for a fantastic weekend.
