Dear Deb and Adam, We truly enjoyed our stay at New Harbor View this past week. It was nice getting to know you . Enjoy the remainder of this beautiful summer that we are having. P.S. We found the bed very comfortable and loved the screened porch, plus the pool is fabulous as well!

Extremely relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Wow...loved it. I am going back this year for two weeks. Last year three. I love how clean everything is all the time. I enjoy the easy access to everything including a trolley as I do not need to rent a car with such great transportation available . If you need anything owner's are right there to help and whoever heard of changing linens whenever you need. I just flew in from across country and everything was provided. Loved the granite countertops. I will continue to rent year after year.

Very relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row that my wife and I, along with our dog, have stayed at New Harbor View Cottages. We always stay in cottage number 9, which the three of us absolutly love. The cottage is a typical quaint Maine cottage with notty pine paneled walls, a convenient layout, modern kitchen, and a wonderful screened in porch facing the ocean. I personally slept like a baby in the front room of this cottage, which is the closest cottage to Route 1, and found the bed to be very comfortable. As the pictures show, all the cottages are set in among the pine trees, with abundant flowers and shrubbery all over the property. The owners were very accommodating, it is a convenient location, close to stores, restaurants, gas stations, and is a short drive to the beach. We had a marvelous time, and definitely will be back next year.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at new harbor view cottages . We have been coming here for years ,ever since our lab was a puppy.We always stayed in one of the smaller cottages that we love. This year my husband wanted to rent a larger cottage .We stayed in #9. Everything was new . Great bathroom and kitchen. Plenty of room for the 3 of us. We loved the porch perfect size for Izzy ,our lab, and I to sit out . In fact if we were not at the beach,Rachel Carson Park, or hiking, Izzy and I would most likely be found on the porch. The bedrooms are very nice and bright. If you book cottage #9 it does show on website that it is close to the road so that if visitors had a choice to pick another cottage. We found that it was just fine . And, this cottage is tucked away in the corner so we felt like we had more privacy. Everything you need is right there which we love.Everything from paper towels to coffee filters. All you need to cook with. We spend allot of our time cooking great meals at the cottage. Also great to walk over to Hannaford early am. There is a huge field in the back where Izzy has her 5:30 am stroll.The beds are always comfortable. And it feels like home when we come. Its nice to get away from tv"s and Computers .Deb ,Adam and Scooter could not be more welcoming ,and, we are always happy to see them.We come 2 or 3 times a year if we can. It is like our home away from home .We feel lucky to have found a special place here.We can't wait to come back in the Fall.

mediocre, terrible mattress, road noise

  • 1 of 5

New Harbor view is pet friendly, and our cottage (9) was cute on the inside. The kitchen and bathroom were reasonably new, and for a seasonal cottage it was okay. The bedrooms are too small to unpack your luggage, so you have to utilize the closets, which were a bit musty. The mattress was TERRIBLE, the absolute worst I've ever slept on and I travel for business a lot! Also they keep a rubber mattress pad on the mattress apparently afraid of incontinence or something. It is really loud, and frankly insulting when you're spending the kind of money it costs to rent during peak season.

The place is generally un-kept, the lawn isn't mowed, or if it is, it is scalped and not trimmed. Our cottage was VERY close to US Route 1 and was very loud. There is not sufficient parking for two vehicles. The Wireless Internet didn't work for the first 5 days, and only worked out on the porch after it was "fixed". Do not expect to watch Netflix on a rainy day here, there isn't enough bandwidth. The pool is heated with solar, so it isn't warm when we rented last week. The TV is from 1995, and there is no DVD or blueray player. Lastly, the owner has trash barrels full of rain water all over the property, some of which have watering jugs in them (we assumed for watering the un-kept flower bed), they are a breeding ground for mosquitos.

Overall we won't rent here again, the owner seemed ambivalent about the internet issues until we really pushed back. We incurred a significant overage on our phone bill because of our data usage just in checking work e-mails and the 2 rainy days where our 2 year old wanted to watch cartoons. They only seemed interested in collecting their rent, which was oddly charged on the first day of our visit, rather than the last as most places do.

On the bright side they are pet friendly and walking distance to many conveniences

Owner's Response: We were quite surprised by this young couple's review, considering the time, expense, and effort we expended addressing their WIFI requests. We spoke with our internet provider and purchased and installed a new $90 router and $50 amplifier. After our efforts, these guests stated that the internet was working fine. In fact, at the end of their stay, these guests left us a lovely note thanking us for "fixing" the internet. Our guests do share the internet bandwidth, so we are not expecting any of our guests to be using Netflix or streaming movies during their stay at the beach. These guests informed me that they were using over 1 Gig of data per day, which is significantly more internet usage than one would expect from guests on vacation. None of our other 10 families/guests notified us of any internet problems during that week. Regarding the comfort of our mattresses, we have had numerous guests provide us very positive reviews on Trip Advisor regarding our very comfortable mattresses and quality of sleep. We do have waterproof mattress pads on our beds, as we do occasionally have an incontinent guest or a spill. One would expect parents of a 2 year old to be very aware of this potential issue. This year, we have had many compliments of how terrific our grounds and flower beds look. However, we do not mow our lawn in the rain. So the lawn was mowed after these guests departed. For conservation, we do have a couple rain barrels to collect and store water for watering our numerous lovely and well kept flower beds. We are near a salt marsh, so mosquitos are around, when it rains. We do however, have screened porches. The weather was a little chilly that week and the guests were using the heat in the cottages, when they arrived. Of course, it does take the swimming pool a while to warm up after nights in the low 50s. Although the week they chose was unseasonably cool, our pool temperature has been in 80s this week. We are typical Maine Cottages. So, we do not have flat screens or provide DVD or blue ray players. We assume our guests are here to vacation at the beach. Cottage #9 is closer to the road than our other cottages, but most guests who have stayed in this cottage request it again. We provide parking for 2 cars. These guests had a large pickup truck with extended cab and a SUV. We wish them much luck finding a suitable pet friendly place next year for their family. The Fords

Very enjoyable and accomadating

  • 5 of 5

This was really above and beyond what we had hoped for. We all felt so very much at home and had all that we needed for a much enjoyable and relaxing vacation. The week we were there was very hot and we thought that even with the intense heat our cottage did stay comfortable, especially considering a few of the days topped off at 100! The pool was great our hosts were very nice and helped in any way needed. I very much suggest a stay here.... We look forward to staying again very soon.
