Why John Thurlow chose Scarborough and Pine Point

This is one of the most beautiful locations in Maine. Many of our guests choose to return each year.

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, close proximity to one of Maine's most beautiful beaches, our own very private beach on the river steps from the deck. Truly a beautiful area with wonderful view.

From E-mail to the Owners - Solicited Review...



We had a weekend stay at Fishermen's Cove Cottage last September and were very impressed. The cottage was so comfortable, beautifully decorated, with glass all along the water side for superb views. We launched our kayaks right there since it's just 40 feet from the beautiful harbor. I think Pine Point is one of the most beautiful places in Maine and this cottage is the closest to the Harbor. The owners, John and Susan, are right on site with their small cottage which is very convenient. I didn't mention that there is a small beach which is very private and it has western exposure for wonderful sun, but the famous Pine Point Beach on the ocean is only a five minute walk. We love the quaint little restaurants nearby. One overlooks the lobster boats in the Scarborough River and another sits on the beautiful Scarborough Marsh. The Clambake is a famous seafood restaurant which we visited three times! Excellent food. Our kids loved collecting seaglass and catching crabs and periwinkles and other critters at low tide. We even tried our hand at digging clams. I could go on and on but will end by saying this cottage is just wonderful and so is Pine Point. You will not be disappointed. It's a five Star!

Wonderful view and property owners

Not only was the house a great place to vacation with beautiful views, it's in between two great restaurants in close walking distance. Incredible sunsets too!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review. Our waterfront cottage is the ideal place for family vacations, events, and weddings. The views are beautiful and the sunsets amazing. Our large groomed lawn is perfect for all sorts of activities and the cottage is immaculately clean and very comfortable... a true beach house cottage in the charming location of Pine Point, Maine. Please come visit us again. Jeff & Linda

Fabulous Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This home is ideally located on the peninsula of Pine Point, Maine. The huge living room windows look out onto Scarborough harbor and the beautiful sand marsh, which is teaming with salt water birds and interesting animals. We launched our canoe from the sandy beach just in back of the cottage and had a relaxing afternoon ride. On the other side of the peninsula you'll find a gorgeous 7 mile strip of white sand beach. The home is immaculately maintained and stocked with anything that a vacationing family might need. There are terrific seafood restaurants within walking distance, and the Maine Mall is a short drive away. You couldn't ask for a better place to rest, relax, and unwind. We can't wait to get back!
