Very nice cottage in a very peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage in a very peaceful location, 5 min from the Higgins Beach from which one has a wonderful view of the coast of Maine.

Mr and Mrs Smith are very friendly and it was possible to stay only one night (mid-October), as we were on our way from the Acadia National Park to the White Mountains area in New Hampshire. The cottage contains everything you need to cook and it has a private yard for children to play. The cottage is very clean. Definitely a place to stay to explore this part of the coast of Maine.

This is our fourth visit to the Smith Cottage. The Cottage is very comfortable- good beds, kitchen well stocked, and very clean. The location is one block to the most beautiful beach in the world!!

Dennis and Beverley are great hosts- very helpful when needed.

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a sweet cottage; well furnished and spotlessly clean. We had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully stocked, so you can eat in any time you want. The back deck and small yard are private and very pleasant to spend time in when you are not at the beach. The owners are friendly and available if you need them, while also giving you plenty of privacy. We will be back!

A Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

The Smith Cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable. A short walk to the beach, it is also quiet with its own private yard of lovely flowers. The owners are friendly and accommodating. I have rented 2 years and everything was perfect.

Notes:
Higgins Beach just happens to be one of the best beaches in Maine. It is a 3/4 mile white sand beach (the kind of fine sand that "squeaks" when you walk on it) located bewteen rockbound cliffs to the south and the Spurwink River to the north. A gentle beach slope makes it safe for the kids while the offshore surf break makes it a favorite of surfers. Offshore is Richmond Island, a great destination for kayakers. A real "beach community" the Higgins Beach neighborhood is walkable - you don't have to get in your car to buy local seafood at the fishmarket, fresh fruit, vegetables, meat at the Higgins Beach Market, or pick up your sundries at the corner store. Although, you may opt to dine at one of the award winning restaurants at the two local hotels. The Higgins Beach Clubhouse offers Wednesday morning breakfasts, scheduled musical entertainment, festive Fourth of July activities, etc.
