Why Dyan L Berk chose Northport

It was a pleasure having both of you in our cottage. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you had a save journey home. Do come back another time
Thanks for leaving the cottage so tidy!

Idyllic and private HOME
This is a lovely home away from home. We stayed here for our honeymoon and could not have asked for a better experience. It was so quiet, surrounded by nature, and with beautiful night skies to watch. Yet restaurants and sights were only a short car ride away. The perfect combination.
The owners were totally nice, extremely helpful, and accommodating. They made us feel very welcome. The cottage itself is a dream. Cozy, colorful, and charming. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a little private time to themselves, yet not be cut off from civilization either.
A cute, serene, and spacious home base
Our family of 2 plus a baby thoroughly enjoyed a two-month stay in the cottage this summer. The cottage is set peacefully at the end of a private driveway and surrounded by a well-kept lawn and lovely tall woods that sway in the breezes. On hot summer days we dunked our baby in the little stream a few yards through the woods behind the cottage. And on some uncommonly chilly summer days we lit a fire in the wood stove and stayed cozy inside!
The owners are always friendly and helpful, happy to offer any local tips or assistance (and they shared fresh herbs and vegetables from their garden!) yet very respectful of privacy. The cottage shares a driveway with the main house so it feels private and quiet, but not too secluded.
We cook a lot and appreciated that the kitchen and outdoor grill were well-equipped. We liked the open layout of the downstairs kitchen/dining/living area, and the enclosed sun porch is a nice bonus space for hanging out and peeking at the wild turkeys and rabbits that occasionally scamper through the yard. The queen-bedroom had more than enough space for our travel crib and large luggage, with room to spare.
The cottage makes a perfect base for exploring the midcoast region and beyond, to places like the Blue Hill peninsula and Acadia. Belfast is the nearest town, less than 10 minutes north, and it's a cool one, with lots of amenities. A little cove off of Pitcher Pond is a few minutes' walk from the cottage and provides a beautiful place to take the owners' canoe for a paddle. We also enjoyed plenty of nearby swim spots: Lincolnville Beach, Knight's Pond in Northport, Norton's Pond in Lincolnville, and Balance Rock on Lake Megunticook. There's even a lovely organic farmstand across Route 52, maybe half a mile walk from the cottage.
This is a great place to hang your hat!
The cottage you will be renting is located in an area that is close to numerous ponds , ocean beaches , hiking trails, boating , fishing etc. The natural beauty is breathtaking wherever you drive in the area. The 2 towns Belfast and Camden are filled with activities, cultural events and special events, movies farmers markets, flea markets art shows and grterat restaursants everywhere. The property itself is quiet, full of wildlife surrounded by conservation land and hiking trails. Pitcher pond is down the driveway and across the street.
