Maine Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cozy 2 Br, 1 bath on the ocean w/amazing views

Set next to the bay on Cousins Island above the water with westerly views sits the most wonderful 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage. (4 people Max Occupancy) It has always been owned by the same loving family. Now it welcomes you with many renovations and updates. It is fresh, fun and totally relaxing all in one!

Just cross the bridge from the mainland of Yarmouth, breathe in the ocean air, let your worries fade away, and you are on Cousins Island. There is a sandy/rocky beach front down a path next to the cottage as well as 3 other accesses to the water. This includes one with a dock as well as a sandy beach.

Rentals in the high season are weekly only- Saturday to Saturday. Sorry- NO PETS, NO SMOKING.

Linens are provided.There is a gas fireplace for cool nights and other delightful surprises including a huge enclosed ocean front porch. There is no maid service we require our guests to clean up before leaving- this keeps the rent low for you. Email today to reserve your week!

Birchwood Cottage - Beautiful and Serene....

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Birchwood this Summer - it was everything as described in the VRBO add...comfortable bedrooms, very functional kitchen, a nice living room with a flat screen TV (not that you will spend much time watching TV in such a beautiful place!), and a porch where you can watch the sun set from a nice rocking chair. In fact, you will spend most of your time on that porch - perfect for dinners, evening cocktails, morning coffee or just a quiet talk with your spouse. Birchwood is the perfect Maine cottage - if you want to relax from the stress of life, this place is for you.

Birchwood Cottage-clean and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My wife, brother, and I spent the week July 28 to August 4, 2012. Located on the water front at the end of a deadend street, the cottage was exactly as described and the photos provided an accurate indication of its assets. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. The enclosed porch overlooking the water was special. Loved the antiques and especially the pocket door to the bathroom. The antics of the ospry family on the offshore nesting platform were special, seals were seen on a periodic island, and gulls droped mussels on the shoreline rocks to break open the shells. We took walks on nearby reserves including Littlejohn Island Preserve and Mast Landing Bird Sancuary. Excellent lobsters were very inexpensive at Haraseeket Lobster Co. in South Freeport. Wonderful fresh fish was obtained from Free Range Fish and Lobster in Portalnd. Beer and burgers at Great Lost Bear Pub in Portland was terrific. Lots of good restaurants in Old Port, Portland. I would recommend this cottage to couples age 55+
