This is our second time renting this beautiful home! It is so nice to just drive up and be ready to relax. They provide bedding, beach chairs, towels ..even a tennis court ! ...and all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable. There is always a bottle of wine and a Maine blueberry pie to enjoy upon your arrival. They are even pup friendly. I love the open lay out and the 2 separate living areas where kids and adults can spread out. My favorite things are bowls of coffee on the big deck and wine in the evening on the wine deck(as we have come to call it! ). Great area to walk with beautiful views of the bay and 10 minutes from the beach and light house, lobster pound, golf and a great little wine store! I never want to leave!! Hosts are very gracious and very easy to deal with. Love this place!!
This is my 3rd or 4th time renting this wonderful Mansurd -roofed home. Just puling up to it makes me feel happy. There are two outdoor venues for enjoying eating out as well as relaxing quietly and just smelling the tuber roses. Just up the path is a tennis court for your use. Unlike feeling like an old cabin, this is a shabby-chic rental that is bright with every piece of upholstery having comfortability but not stuffy. My grandchildren ages 2 1/2 and almost 5 froliced indoors and outdoors for one week. We just love the whole area! Hope to return soon.
My wife and I, our son and his wife and our two grandchildren spent a week at the Victorian cottage. It was perfect for us. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom up stairs for the kids and a bedroom with full bath downstairs for us and Max our dog. The place was spotless. There's a well appointed kitchen with an attached sitting room that was so comfortable that we spent most of our time there when not out exploring. There are two decks for sitting, eating and cocktails. The owner's notes on what to do and see were extremely helpful. The "must do's" were right on: Lighthouse, beach, Pemaquid Coop for lobster (BYO), Red's for a Lobster roll that contains a whole, delicious lobster, and more. Most thing are close by. It was a great, comfortable place to come back to after a day of exploring.
We had a business trip and needed to be in the Pemaquid region in April and did not want to stay in a hotel and thought VRBO could offer some options for us. Because it was still quite early for the rental season, we thought it would be hard to find something charming and comfortable, but when we saw this Victorian Mansard (Listed as a year round home) in Pemaquid Harbor, we were thrilled. The owners were so so easy to work with and accommodated our crazy schedule, which was a concern as we were coming at an off season time of the year. When we arrived (late in the evening), the motion light came on for us (most helpful when arriving after dark) and everything was ready for us. We turned the heat up and within minutes were toasty warm. We prepared a quick dinner, watched a little TV, then fell into bed, (on a very comfortable mattress) in the downstairs master bedroom.
Because it was a working trip we did not spend as much time at the cottage as we would have liked, but enjoyed our morning coffee and breakfast in the large, sunny country kitchen which was furnished with very comfortable seating. Even though it was just the 2 of us, we thought it was very cozy.
Things were not in bloom yet but could tell from the buds starting the burst on the shrubs, flowers and lilac trees, the natural landscaping would be beautiful.
The large outdoor deck (which you walk across to get to kitchen entrance) was surrounded by natural landscaping, granite rocks placed by nature, lattice with vines that were probably honeysuckle or climbing hydrangeas. We could tell it would be amazing when in bloom. (We were just too early this trip)
We hope to return to this lovely cottage and location, and when we do, we will be sure to take the time to enjoy the area which is a rare find!
My family had a great Maine vacation in this house. The house is perfect size and can fit 6 people comfortably. It is located within a walking distance from the Pemaquid co-op. When we walked in a fresh pie and a bottle of wine were right on the table for us! The renting agent is very helpful and easy to deal with. We are looking forward to visiting again!
My daughters stayed there, while we rented another house for the rest of the family. What a difference! At this Most Charming Cottage, we were welcomed with a pie, kind notes and then a thank you note afterwards! The rental agent is lovely to work with! The cottage was so precious, we enjoyed the outside porch so much, had many dinners there that held all 16 of us! This is a wonderful place to stay!
