The cottage was perfect for my husband, our 3 month old daughter and myself for the Thanksgiving holiday! Although it was cold when we were there, we loved stepping out to the back deck with the small lawn area - can imagine it would be perfect in the summer. We walked on the beach everyday we were there (only 1 block!) and in the evenings - so quiet and serene - only the scent of wood fire on the nose :) We were only a 5 minute drive from family on Cape Elizabeth so it was a great location for us!
The laundry and basic-stocked kitchen was HUGE for us with a newborn. We enjoyed breakfast and some lunches in and even hosted some family for pizza for dinner so the space was perfect. Bev and Dennis were easy to work with, gave us our space but were available for questions or recommendations as needed. We will definitely be back!
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.
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!
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.
