Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 Baths

Welcome to Heron's Nest! This unique and beautiful property consists of two stunning adjacent oceanfront cottages that are rented together as one unit. With 3 bedrooms in 2 separate cottages, Heron's Nest is the perfect setting for 2 couples or families.

* "Peak Summer" rate is for the use of both cottages and up to 6 guests.

* All other seasons' rates are for the use of 1 cottage and 2 guests. To rent both cottages, please contact the owner for the best price.

* In either situation, for your privacy, your party will have exclusive use of the cottages.

Heron's Nest is nestled among the Pines on a steep hillside overlooking the Damariscotta River. This serene and dramatic setting provides the perfect backdrop for your Maine vacation. You will even find a chilled bottle of a Veuve Cliquot champagne to welcome you to our incredible hillside retreat. Along with the incredible sights, you will also hear the sound of the surf crashing on the rocks below, and experience the ocean breezes while relaxing on the oversized deck.

Cottage 1 features charming knotty pine walls and soaring ceilings. It has 1 bedroom and 1 bath and has been fully renovated and professionally decorated. The bedroom is gorgeous and has beautiful views right from the cozy queen bed. The kitchen is well equipped with stainless appliances including a full sized stove/oven, fridge and dishwasher. There is also a hi-def flat screen Smart TV that has cable, Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Cottage 2 is adorable and is also loaded with charm. It has 1 bedroom with a queen bed, and an open loft with a futon. There is a kitchen with an camp sized oven/stove, small fridge and microwave. There is a full bath with a tub and shower combo.

Both cottages feature fine "Cuddledown" linens. There is also wifi throughout and a washer and dryer.

Heron's Nest is professionally managed by Chill Vacation Rentals. All of our properties are exceptionally clean and provide guests with upscale amenities, and great linens. We strive to provide pictures and information that accurately reflect what the property provides so that you can be assured that your rental will meet or exceed your expectations. While you are here, we are nearby and very responsive to your needs.

The property is located on King Phillips Trail which is only 5 miles to Boothbay Harbor, yet is one of the quietest neighborhoods in the area. The scenic 2 mile long road meanders along the shoreline and ties directly in to the Linekin Preserve which offers an additional 3 miles of hiking trails. This is the perfect place for someone who likes to jog or walk every day. There is also a community dock for water access that offers a place to launch kayaks or watch the lobstermen take in their haul.

Important Accessibility Notes: The hillside location of the cottages makes for a unique and stunning setting, but does require a walk from the parking area of about 50 yards along a boardwalk. Therefore the cottages would be difficult to access for those with mobility issues. The cottages may not be suitable for families with young children as there is a steep unfenced drop-off to the ocean below

What makes this cottage unique

This property sits on a very large and private lot surrounded by trees and the ocean. It is exceptionally quiet and private, except of course for the sounds of the crashing waves and lobster boats. The road its on is very unique in that it runs along the shoreline and provides a stunning backdrop for walkers, runners and bikers.

Wonderful week in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

The cottages are beautiful and well kept. The views are amazing. The air feels so refreshing coming and sound of waves is wonderful to fall asleep to. We appreciated the extras, like fresh coffee beans and goat's milk soap and champagne in the fridge! A truly wonderful week.

Beautiful Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had delightful stay! The setting is very private in a wooded area with beautiful views of the river as it flows to the ocean. The view provides a tranquil scene of lobster fishermen plying their trade as well an occasional sailboat or ferry. Within an easy drive there are a number of wonderful seafood restaurants.

Heron's nest is well appointed, cozy bedding, well equipped kitchens and a peaceful deck where we spent many enjoyable hours. Pam was most attentive and she provided more than enough info for our stay. Be sure to take time to visit the Botanical Garden - it is well done and enjoyable. Friends from New York visited and we all agreed to meet there again next year! We loved our stay at Heron's nest!

Finally getting around to an overdue rating for this nice property. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this adorable cottage. Such a picturesque spot with the rolling water sounds and fabulous sunrises. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and had everything you would need for your stay. The bed was especially comfortable which is important for those who have bad backs... Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Even enjoyed the walk from the car to the cabin but is not for anyone with disabilities. Perfect spot for day trips and relaxation.

All the comforts of home and then some

  • 4 of 5

We had an incredible stay at the Heron's Nest. It was just what we needed to get away from it all! Beautiful location and the cottage had everything we needed....even down to a coffee grinder for our coffee in the morning! It was so peaceful - we enjoyed having our coffee out on the deck overlooking the ocean and watching the lobstermen pulling their traps and the sailboats quietly sailing by. The sunrises were amazing and the stars at night were just phenomenal. It's about a 10 minute drive into town or close enough to drive to Rockland and Camden for the day. I would highly recommend the boat trip to Monhegan Island for the day. Great hiking trails and amazing views. Pam with the management company is great to work with and checked on us during the week to see if we needed anything and thank you to the owner of the property for our surprise bottle of champagne and little goodies from the local bakery that were left for us - nice touch. I can't say enough about this getaway. We would love to go back!
