About the Owner

John is an engineer and Sherry is a teacher. We have a thirteen year old son and an eleven year old daughter. When we purchased and furnished this cottage, they were young and we wanted it to be our 'home away from home'. We chose comfortable and durable furnishings so that we didn't have to worry about the kids being wet or messy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time staying in our beautiful and cozy cottage. We went to the pools, the beach, The Egg and I for breakfast, the Maine Diner for dinnner -- both very yummy! We also enjoyed relaxing on the porch, playing scrabble, and reading. It was so peaceful, we didn't want to ever go home!

On our last day here, my boyfriend proposed to me and I said Yes!! We will never forget this vacation and hope to come back again next year for a full week. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your wonderful cottage!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our 1st vacation in many years... We all had a wonderful time. This cottage was just prefect, the owner has stocked it well. Games for evening, nightlights, and lots of dishes. The kids enjoyed the pools and the arcade. Fishermen's Catch wonderful lunch, Maine Diner (5 stars) for dinner, and Texas RoadHouse ( about a 20 min drive) great steak dinner. Wells Beach was so relaxing. We look forward to coming again. Thanks

Inside Perspective

  • 5 of 5
I feel the need to respond to one of the reviews that was written regarding the above cottage. I have been working with the Livsey's for the 2012 season as well as some of the other owners on this property. I have seen my fair share of Cottages. Their cottage is absolutely wonderful, it is homey, clean, and nicely decorated as can be seen from any one of the pictures posted. The place is thoroughly cleaned in between rentals with no complaints. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the bathroom fan, I have in fact never seen an ant in the cottage despite it being summer time in fact the property is treated for pests, and there certainly is no smell in the unit. As for the Livsey's they have to be one of the most attentive owners that I work for that rents their units. They go above and beyond to make sure that the renters stay is pleasant and that everything is taken care of. If there was an issue with anything that was mentioned by the disgruntled renter the Livsey's in fact would of taken care of it. However, when i went to clean the renters had told me that they had had a wonderful time and enjoyed their stay knowing I was their to clean. It is against the rules for renters to bring pets and therefore they are in fact retaliating for being caught and trying to get out of the damage that was in fact caused by the pet and the Livsey's will take care of to ensure future renters do not have to deal with the results of their error. If you are looking for a cottage to rent I strongly suggest you rent from them, their home is beautiful, there are wonderful amenities at your fingertips, as well as a trolley line that can pick you up and drop you off at the beaches, the area is beautiful and the owners are truely wonderful people that will ensure that your trip was well worth it. I gaurentee you will not regret your decision and you will be back again. Thanks

I wanted to show some class and not mention it but the owners attitude was horrible. The place smelled when we arrived. There was old food left in the cabinets, the cookout grill had about 2 inches of grime on it.( I had to clean it), ants in the kitchen. The bathroom fan sounded like a truck motor. The are no screens on the doors. How are you supposed to enjoy the air with storm glass on the doors.The arrogant owner also advised me she was going to tell other people not to rent to me in the future.

Owner's Response: This renter is angry with us because he snuck a dog to the cottage and that is against our rules and the condo association rules. When I questioned him about it, he would not admit to having a dog in the cottage. There was dog fur everywhere and damage to some items. He never contacted us about any of the above so that it could be rectified while he was on vacation. I give everyone my cell number so that I can be reached day or night for any reason. In my opinion, this is a defensive response from someone who blatantly broke the rules and does not want to pay for that. I contacted the person who checked in immediately after this renter and she assured me that the cottage was properly cleaned and there were no ants. She did mention that she had to clean dog fur off of one of the living room chairs. Our cleaner had spent 3 hours cleaning to prepare for the next renter when it typically takes her one hour. I feel badly that it has come this far and that some people do not feel the need to be honest or follow rules. I would be happy to answer any questions you have about our cottage and assure you that we do everything we can to provide a clean spot for your vacation.
Thanks You,
Sherry and John Livsey

Location

From the Owner

We chose this property because it was brand new at the time. The price was right and we loved that it is closed for half of the year so we don't have to think about it.

This property is the best of both worlds. It is a resort with on site amenities but it's close to beaches and fun attractions. We love that there is so much to do in Southern Maine, it's so fun to explore.
