Terrific Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. A great and quiet spot. Apartment is clean and well kept. Not large but easily enough for three of us. We rented kayaks, launched from the dock each day and explored. It was a quick trip to Popham beach and into Bath. Nearby vegetable stand and fresh fish. Pat helped us navigate the tides and took us out on a nice boat ride, but was never in our way. Highly recommend.

Quintessential Maine!

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking. You've found the perfect Maine getaway for a weekend retreat, down east vacation, or "life sabbatical." I needed a place to stay for the winter months and did I ever find a gem! I felt comfortable from the minute I arrived. Pat is a wonderful host ~ her guest's happiness is her primary concern and she'll do whatever she can do to ensure it. She has an innate sense of when to "be there" and when to "let be." I felt like I had the whole property to myself!! There are straight on views of the cove from both the living area and bedroom. I loved to see the morning light shine on the woods across the bay and watch the ducks and seagulls do their thing. The space feels spacious ~ just the right size for a couple or a family with a couple of kids. And the location couldn't be better. Privacy on the Maine coastline and yet close to all the best that Maine that has to offer. I'd highly recommend this property!! Contact Pat if you're looking for a month-to-month rental. It was just what I was looking for....peaceful, comfortable, and healing....I felt lucky to be there every day.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Great Rental!!! We recently stayed here with our two dogs and had a wonderful time! The rental is adorable and quite comfortable. The views from the bedroom and deck are amazing! We couldn't get enough. The property is immaculate and Pat couldn't be more helpful and kind. We loved sitting by the deck and looking at the water. The dogs also loved romping around the entire property! We visited Fort Popham State Historic Site and Beach with our dogs. This place was very dog friendly! We also went to the Merrymeeting Dog Park in Brunswick, Maine. After entertaining our dogs for the week, the humans spent an evening in Portland, which was about a 40 minute drive from the rental. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this rental for others!

We had a wonderful stay. The waterfront location is secluded and beautiful. Pat is a warm and welcoming hostess who put us and our 4 year old at ease for a relaxing getaway. Thank you.

Perfect Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here and had a wonderful time. Pat is so hospitable and helpful. The location is very central to lots of fun activities and places to explore. The kitchen is loaded with whatever you need, including a big pot to boil our own lobster. The gardens and grounds are beautiful and peaceful. We loved taking the kayak out into the water and exploring. This was the perfect Maine getaway for our land locked Colorado family!

peace and plenty

  • 5 of 5

If you are seeking peace, quiet, and serene natural beauty that only the coast of Maine can deliver in its particular way, this is a wonderful choice. I love to walk in the early morning with my cup of coffee out to the point and watch the birds working over the cove; other than their voices, all is silence. The scent of firs surrounds you, and you can watch the water for hours without interruption. The owner's gardens are absolutely gorgeous, and the grounds invite you to spend as much time out of doors as possible. If you can tear yourself away from the natural beauty, it's an easy drive to Bath, Brunswick, or Portland if you want to take in the museums, shops, and restaurants. The cottage apartment is a charming, romantic little retreat. I found this to be a remarkably relaxing, beautiful place and intend to return as often as I can.
