About the property

1 Bedroom, 1/2 bath, Sleeps 4

We only rent weekly during July and August, Sunday to Sunday

Seascape is your quintessential Maine Camp. Situated at the end of the road, right on Harpswell Sound, it is quiet and peaceful. It is a small cottage, newly renovated. It has a kitchen area, a small 1/2 bath with shower, sink and toilet, and a combined dining./living room area. Upstairs is a cheerful bedroom with 2 twin beds and 1 full bed. Perfect for a family of 4.

We have a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave, toaster and coffee maker. There is TV with cable and a DVD player with a large selection of movies. Upstairs in the bedroom we have 2 rockers to relax in and look out across the water to Orrs Island and the Cribstone Bridge. Perhaps grab a book from our bookshelf to while away the time on a rainy day

We have electric heaters for those cool summer nights. There is a small yard with a grill for cooking outside, parking for one car. We are at the water's edge so you can scramble down to the water at low tide, but it is a drop.

Lovely seaside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Seascape! The cottage is at the dead end of a dirt road and right next to the shore. There are neighboring houses not far away, but the situation of the cottage makes it very private even so. Very quiet, no traffic noise except for the occasional boat; really all we heard was the sound of the sea and birds. The house was very clean and thoughtfully equipped with some basics: salt and pepper, sugar, paper napkins, paper towels, soap. We did some of our own cooking, and the kitchen had all we needed. Lots of windows and good light. We were there on a rainy day and the house did not seem gloomy. Good communication with Diana and our deposit was returned within a few days. Really nothing negative to say; it's a wonderful place and we hope to return!

Excellent get away cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at this cottage for 2 nights, celebrating my recent retirement. This house was absolutely perfect. It is so close to the water, you almost feel like you are in a boat. Everything was very neat and clean and so quiet. We took day trips to visit the sights and our weather was perfect. Be sure to try the Dolphin Marina for dinner at sunset. And we had great fun renting a kayak from Orrs Island. If we have a chance, we will definitely come back again.

About Diana StPierre

My husband and I found this property while taking a walk in the area. We own another property within walking distance. We loved that it was right on the water. It was a falling down shack, which my husband lovingly redid over the course of two years. We love having it near our other place as we have a big family and it gives us a chance to spread out.

Diana StPierre purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Diana StPierre chose Harpswell

We bought property in this area because my husband's family is from Maine and summered on Cundy's Harbor. We live in Ct. As a boy his family always vacationed at the family camp in Cundy's Harbor, as we did when we had children. As our family grew we needed more room, loved the area, and decided to buy property.

What makes this cottage unique

We love that this property is at the end of dead end road, so very quiet. And of course you can't beat the view of the criibstone bridge across the water. We love watching the lobster boats go by, and to get those cooling ocean breezes on a warm summer day.
