About Julie Glavin

We are New Englanders, our parents arrived at Goose Rocks in the 50's and built this cottage in the early 60's. We have happily and gratefully been coming here, now for 4 generations, from Massachusetts and Calif. every summer. This is the place for us to reconnect, relax together... and apart - our true sentimental home. Also... to eat as many lobsters and as much of E's blueberry pies as possible!

Julie Glavin purchased this cottage in 1960

Why Julie Glavin chose Southern Coast of Maine

Our cottage has been lovingly upgraded & is just a delightful place! Very easy. Clean. It is impossible not to have absolutely the most relaxing time here - bright and cheerful and comfortable. It is a sweet spot close to the beach. A place to unwind, to watch the kids toddling on their bikes to tennis lessons or families parading by to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Centrally located, is a short walk to the 3 mile long, finest N.E. white sandy beach. The magical Timber Island anchoring one end to navigate onto at low tide. A perfect place for swimming - young & old - kayaking, etc... - easy surf for all water activities. The uniquely charming General Store (movie rentals & blueberry muffins) is a quick bike ride up the street. Located around the corner from the charming Community House - see how it came to land on this site via a ride on the Atlantic. It Is a central meeting place for all things summer - kids tennis, swimming lessons, & lots of activities for the whole family. There are plenty of gorgeous spots to spread out to from the cottage.

Quaint Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

The house is small and cute, as described, with charming pale blue wood floors. 4 blocks from the beach, this is an affordable option if looking to be in Goose Rocks with the family.

Perfect Maine Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is really a great property, it is very clean and well maintained. The house is family owned and they were so willing to work with us when booking our vacation. We had such a fantastic time and it was just perfect for us. The house looks just like it does in the pictures and is just a short walk from the gorgeous Goose Rocks Beach, and so worth it. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful little cottage, We look forward to many more years!

Prime Location for Families!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing here for many years, but this is the first time we've stayed at this locale.

This charming cottage is a prime location for young families! Just a skip away from the gorgeous white sands of Goose Rocks Beach, and a step away from a bustling Community House that provides endless activities for young and old. A (VERY) clean, bright and cozy summer home, we were very comfortable here......see you in the summer of 2013!

Very Enjoyable Week

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as described. It was very clean on arrival and more spacious than pictures do justice. The owners have done a lot to update in the last year or so and it shows. We were very pleased. Location was fabulous, sort of in between the community center and the beach. Outdoor shower is ideal for cleaning toys, chairs, boards and people!

fun in the sun!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this cottage every summer for the past few years. The location is great, less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. My young children have a blast riding their bikes to the beach. The cottage is also close to the Community House, where you can play tennis or the kids can use the playground. The cottage is exceptionally clean with a comfortable living room, the kitchen/dining area is bright and sunny. The large dining table allows for plenty of seating, perfect for a large family, bright and sunny,this is an amazing vacation spot that we look forward to coming back again.
