Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

As veteran travelers, we have stayed in really cute places, but this one was off the charts welcoming and pleasant. The charm factor is important to me, therefore, we chose this place from the pictures, but until you walk in Heron Cottage, you can't really know the feeling you get. The windows were open with that wonderful Maine breeze wafting through the place, gentle classical music was playing, and gorgeous fresh bouquets of green and lavender hydrangeas and cut flowers from Lindsay's garden and goldenrod field were scattered throughout the cottage to welcome us. I just wanted to uncork a bottle of wine, sit down, and never move!! Her artistic touches are everywhere from the beautiful "expressions" she has painted down to the hand painted floors. The dining room preserved from the old cabin is a beauty to behold! Her flowering meadows have walking paths mowed, there are several fire pit areas to sit by your own fires and watch nature or enjoy the sun going down, the kayaks and canoe are at your disposal for leisurely trips out into the cove, and your very own vegetable and sunflower garden near the cabin abounds with lettuce, tomatoes, and cukes for making an organic salad to go with dinner. Oh my gosh! I cannot tell you how great this place is! Lindsay is delightful and thoughtful of her guests.Too bad I can't run up from Florida about once a month to get my Lindsay's cottage fix. Life is good there on the cove, I promise. Go now while you can!!!

Owner's Response: Pat, You and your husband also made the experience by so carefully researching and knowing exactly what you both sought and then being so positive and gracious when you found all was as pictured and advertised. Anyone who has the two of you as guests us very lucky indeed. You are both delightful. You should write a book or column on the all the amazing places your careful research has found. I am very happy you chose Heron Cottage and hope to see you again.
