Mike purchased this cottage in 2012
We love the amazing ocean views that surround you, the peaceful and private cove beach, the laid back atmosphere of the area, the excellent kayaking, the small shops and restaurants and the dozens of mid-coast Maine attractions and small sea-side towns all within a short drive and without the huge summer crowds.
This cottage offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle. With a private sandy-rocky beach, excellent kayaking, walks around the island and sweeping views of the ocean from the deck or inside the living room you could spend days just poking about the cove and island. If you are feeling like exploring, in minutes you can be in several small villages like Damariscotta, Rockland, Camden, Tenants Harbor and all they have to offer which include wineries, summer festivals, unique Maine shops, fresh seafood and vegetables, beaches, hiking, ferries to near by islands, and so much, much more! Excellent restaurants like Primo (the chef was awarded James Beard '2013 Best Chef in the Northeast' award!), Café Miranda, Waterman Beach Lobster and Rockcity Café offer a wide variety of tastes and price ranges.
The property was as we pictured it - large enough for a family of 4 & on the water with a beautiful view. Our children loved being able to put their kyacks in right on this lovely cove. This was our first time booking with VRBO and this experience was so smooth we would definitely consider it again!
Great getaway on calm and peaceful cove. Perfect spot to explore the mid-coast and all it has to offer. Water lapping on the shore can't be beat. Cottage is vintage Maine with just enough amenities for maximum comfort. Views spectacular. Cooking is easy. Nearby restaurants also all lovely. Bedrooms a bit tight, but just right for family of four/w kids. Locals very friendly to those "from away." We've been vacationing in Maine for 10 years and will definitely return to this spot. Owner very nice and easy to work with. Missing it already!
The location was absolutely wonderful and peaceful. Remote enough to feel secluded but an easy drive to cute towns and shops. The cottage had the bare necessities and was comfortable. The views were beautiful and we were even lucky enough to catch the sunrise on our first morning there. If you are looking for a quiet, remote and restful vacation then this cottage and location are perfect! One star off for having to pay extra for sheets and towels.
This cottage is just beautiful and a very comfortable place to stay. The view from the back deck is spectacular and the cottage contains everything we needed for our stay. It's close to Rockland for any meals out and other supplies you may need for your stay. We would definitely return for another stay.
actually have no words to describe the beautiful little piece of heaven I found while staying at this cottage I stayed for a long weekend to try to make my mind up about relocating from Pennsylvania and I already knew the first night into my stay that I was going to move to Maine cottage was very clean owners were extremely helpful location was absolutely perfect I will be back again would recommend this rental to anyone looking to go to Maine for a weekend getaway or long peaceful vacation it was truly perfect thank you Mike
