Half old coastal cottage and half newly renovated vacation home, this was a great place to escape to. There were five of us, including two kids and my mother-in-law. There are three private bedrooms and space in some of the large common spaces for more folks to sleep, if needed. Lots of space and good light throughout. The views of the cove as the tide rolls in and out are ever-changing and beautiful. We walked the quiet roads around the cove area every morning and evening, went across the peninsula to the beach and historic site, down the peninsula to the lighthouse, and took the ferry out to Monhegan one day to wander around. We also spent a day over at the Botanical Garden of Coastal Maine near Boothbay, one of the finest gardens we've been to. The owners of the house have left clear and easy instructions on everything about the house and were wonderful and responsive. We don't get up to Maine every year, but we hope to return to this house in the future and recommend it highly.
We stayed in this beautiful cottage for one month this summer! The owners were responsive and helpful throughout the whole rental process. The home is beautiful and very accommodating. We were not lacking for anything during our stay. It is also a great location for exploring the Pemaquid Peninsula. Highly recommend!
We spent our wonderful week here with our son and his wife and our 6 and 2 yr-old grandkids. The house is as beautiful and comfortable as the pictures portray; we were especially delighted with the front room with all the windows looking out to the water. The layout also worked very well for our 3-generation group; plenty of room to stretch out. The kitchen was well appointed and made it fun and easy to cook all our meals there. The location was perfect for us! Hours were spent on two sand beaches just a very short walk down the road; one got consumed by high tide but had wonderful fine sand for digging and castle building during low tide, and the house came with a great supply of beach toys! We spent several hours at the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Reserve less than a mile away, and found delightful hikes nearby. Harbor Bay is very close by with a good sized supermarket and boat cruise departures, including a Puffin cruise.
Lovely house, friendly neighborhood, beautiful views, so much to do but so relaxing; truly a memorable vacation for us all!
My four friends and I loved our stay in this cottage which has a great working kitchen, several locations to sit for a meal both inside and out, and plenty of sleeping and shower space. We walked the loop road several times a day to enjoy soft inlet water to crashing ocean waves and stars at night. Trips south to the Pemaquid Lighthouse and north to Round Pond and Damariscotta were within easy reach. We watched movies and listened to music on foggy days and sat out front for drinks on sunny Maine afternoons. I highly recommend this cottage. You'll love it, too. Rev. Carol Brink
My wife and I loved this cottage, which absolutely lived up to its billing. The house was immaculate and nicely renovated, with plenty of nooks and crannies for our two pre-school age children to explore, and spacious, easily accomodating our party of four with room for more if needed. There was a lovely lawn for them to play on and well back from the road so we felt secure about letting them run around without having to be constantly vigilant... although truth be told there's probably more foot and bike traffic than car traffic. The neighbors on both sides were friendly and an uncrowded (tidal) beach with sea creatures aplenty was a 5 minute walk away. There was great wi-fi although we tried to avoid using it - the only minus, if you consider it that, is that cel service is not great, but that's true of Pemaquid in general and we preferred feeling untethered from our jobs. Long Cove has amazing views in every direction and that relaxed, unhurried feeling that you remember from when you were a child and summer seemed to go on forever. We can't wait to go back.
