About Susanne

Never enough time to spend in Maine!

Susanne purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Susanne chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

There is so much to do or you can do nothing at all but just enjoy the air, the view.

What makes this cottage unique

We love this area of Maine, it's the real Maine. Not too touristy, but enough to keep you busy on a rainy day. It’s a place that you can be as busy as you want or just hang out on the deck and watch the boats, or kayak and explore the islands. It’s a short day trip to Mohegan or Arcadia.

Simplicity, rest, and peace are what we feel when we are here. There is nothing like a night’s sleep in Maine and that first cup of coffee the next morning on the deck. The sunrises and the sunsets are spectacular! Yachts and Lobster Boats, Osprey and seals, all in the same view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We’re just back in Vermont after a really wonderful stay in your little cottage. It could not have been more perfect! 7 days of perfect weather didn’t hurt – but the place and setting were exactly what we were hoping for. Your pictures and information all set our expectations right where they should be – not always the case.

Thanks again for sharing your sweet little place with us!

very peaceful, million dollar view

  • 4 of 5

we had a nice getaway at this cottage. you can't beat the location. our kids loved exploring the beach - just a few steps away - and climbing on the rocks. the view is spectacular. we didn't realize before arriving this is a shared property & the owners have a separate house on the same property. In addition, the cottage is very, very rustic and "tired". however, overall, our vacation was enjoyable & there is lots to explore in the surrounding area.

The house was perfect

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for my father for his 60th birthday and he said it was perfect. The pictures he took looked wonderful. The only disappointment was that the lobster shack next door didn't open until the week after his stay, but that happens. He said it was very secluded and quiet and it was convenient to a lot of nearby attractions. I wish I could have stayed there myself!

One note though, the key wasn't where it said in the instructions which did add a bit of confusion, but we were messing with him the whole time leading up to the trip so it was kind of fitting. :) He found it eventually.

The owner was great to deal with for booking - responsive and friendly. I'd definitely book from them again.

Amazing Sunrises, Clean Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from 4 days at the cottage, and we really enjoyed our all too brief stay! It was lovely to have a small cottage right on the water. The cottage was very clean. The deck looks out over the water. It is small but was everything that my husband and I and our dog needed. The kitchen had a great coffee maker and all of the regular kitchen utensils.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage! My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and it was the perfect little get away! We were a short drive away from Camden and Boothbay Harbor for good day trips, but the rest of the time we could just relax and listen to the waves. Great views of the ocean!

Honeymoon in South Thomaston

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for two nights in October with my brand new husband! The property was absolutely gorgeous! The view and proximity to the ocean was even better in person! When we arrived the owners husband indicated there were a group of seals on a rock in the distance and we were able to watch them with binoculars from the deck! There was also a beautiful maple tree in full color in the yard! We so enjoyed sitting in the sun on the rocks on the beach and then looking for sea glass at low tide. Each night we snuggled on the deck and watched the sun go down and the stars come out. Truly serene memories! The interior of the home was adorable! A very well taken care of property. Everything was provided that we could have wanted for cooking breakfast lunch and dinner! You can really feel the pride and love this owner has for her cabin! The captains couch was the perfect place to curl up and read the paper or just relax and admire the view. We discovered the thoughtfully provided deck of cards and enjoyed an intense gin rummy tournament and also worked on a beautiful lighthouse puzzle! The bed room was well appointed and the bed was a dream! So soft and comfy! The bathroom had lots of nice towels and the shower tho small had more then adequate water pressure and was nice and hot! Even tho the nighttime temperatures did turn pretty chilly outside the cabin stayed warm and toasty and we never had to touch the thermostat!

I would absolutely stay at this property again! It was the perfect end to our honeymoon! We definitely plan to make this a regular vacation destination! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a secluded romantic vacation spot!
