About Veerle Van Der Vekens
I grew up in Belgium and moved to the U.S. 25 years ago. My love for homes, design and people led me to a career in real estate. I also have a passion for finding driftwood and sea glass and love creating unique art pieces with all the cool things the ocean leaves behind. During winter time in Maine, I enjoy traveling and seeing different places and homes all over the world. My partner Daryl and I love traveling together. When we travel, we often stay at Airbnb places. After years of staying in different places all over the world, we wanted to be able to welcome guests of our own. As we live on the beautiful Blue Hill Peninsula here in Maine, we know that each year many visitors are drawn to this beautiful part of the country. Having stayed in so many different places ourselves, we tried to draw from our experiences and wanted to create a home that was both comfortable and cozy as well as one that offers our guests all the comforts of home. My European heritage adds a touch of Europe to our place as well as a Belgian standard in cleanliness and comfort. I hope to welcome people from all over the world into our little cottage. May Heartwoods Cottage offer you peace, rest and joy while enjoying all the beauty Maine has to offer!

We stayed at the cabin just last week. It was our first visit to Maine and the cabin was just right for our family with a young child. It is in a very quiet area surrounded by woods but not isolated. Decent sized town is less an 30 minutes away and local bakery just a few minutes away. The cottage is not on the pond, but it wasn't one of our priorities. The cottage itself is comfortable with all modern amenities. It's rustic without giving up on the urban comforts, important for us because of the young child.
Major attractions like Acadia and Bar Harbor are about 60 minutes drive but there are plenty of hidden gems around. 1-3 mile trails, beaches are just 5-10 mins drive from the cottage.
Veerle is a great host. We appreciated her personalized hospitality. She left a number of age appropriate games in the cottage for our child, which came in handy. She is very responsive and all our queries were answered right away.
