Why Lindsay Newland Bowker chose Stonington
When I first laid eyes on Cove Meadow I knew I would never see or have an opportunity to be the caretaker of such a magnificent and unique property. 10 acres f meadow, ringed with tall ancient woods, 1800 feet f shore cove frontage, estuary frotage and brook frontage. I have restored to pristine conservation standards and done the main house and its two guest houses and gardens to honor Maine and island traditions of simplicity.
What makes this Cottage unique
a very large private park of 10 acres with 1/3 mile of private shore; shared access to two kayaks and two canoes, private exclusive shorefront areaswith hammocks & frepits; own organic kitchen garden, satlitte TV, expresso machine, ice cream maker, 24/7 wifi

If you only have a short time to spend in Maine but want to experience as much of it as possible, I can’t imagine a better place to stay. Stonington and the whole lobster experience is just minutes down the road. Natural woods and oceanfront, Barred Island Preserve is minutes up the road the other way. From the porch we watched locals digging clams at low tide. The cabin was cozy and spotless. Thanks for our stay Lindsay.
What an incredible Cottage and location....
Cove Meadow cottage is simply amazing. I found myself over and over again standing on the deck and looking out at the natural beauty all around me. Deer Island offered us 8 days of enjoyment on trails, visits to farmers markets, excursion on the mail boat to Seal Island and visits to Cold Water Seafood selecting yet another tasty fresh treat for our dinners. We prepared all meals in the cabin and found that it contained utensils for everything we needed and a stove and refrigerator that gave us room to cook and keep our food cold and fresh. The bed was very comfortable and the shower nice and hot as we like it. We had one rainy day when the propane heater took the chill from the air. Our host Lindsay greeted us warmly and gave us excellent suggestions to get us started. She gave us the privacy we needed while always answering email questions promptly. She gave me excellent advice on where to have a flat tire repaired. Definitely on our list of favorite Home Away locations and we would recommend it highly to others.
What a great time in coastal Maine.
A cottage in a perfect setting, with all the amenities that make a great place even better. Close to hikes, shore activities (canoeing!), good food, wildlife views (porpoises!), scenic vistas you can't see any where else. Lovely host who is friendly, engaging & knowledgeable of the area. Autumn is beautiful here. Highly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to "get away from it all".
Our stay at Cove Meadows
We enjoyed very much the quaint cottage with the gorgeous view of the cove. Thanks to Lindsay’s, the owner, attentive skills and knowledge of the area, our trip was such a success!
Quaint cottage with gorgeous view
We loved this cottage! We spend a week every fall in Maine and this cottage was perfect. The cottage is well equipped and charming. The location is fabulous. The cottage overlooks a tidal bay and the owner provides a garden right outside the door with herbs and a few vegetables, Blackberries grow on the property ready to be picked for breakfast. We are avid kayakers and brought our own kayaks but the owner provides kayaks as well. The put in is easy and the kayaking superb. Lindsay,the owner, couldn’t be more helpul. She has wonderful suggestions on kayak routes hikes, and beaches. She goes out of her way to make sure your vacation is terrific. Don’t miss this wonderful spot
Dear Brady's..The pleasure was all mine. You are delightful people and it was my good fortune you chose my cottage.
Thanks or this lovely review. Much appreciated!!!
Perfect Maine Vacation!
Ken & I had a most enjoyable relaxing time staying at Cove Meadow for a week. Lindsay was a terrific hostess and shared her love of the Meadow with us. The town of Stonington is very small but a delightful fishing village that has several wonderful restaurants, not to mention the lobsters & lobster rolls & mussels. The cottage was equipped with everything one would need. A very cozy home with a beautiful view. At the foot of the Deer Isle Bridge was a new lobster shack that had just opened. It has a lovely picnic area over looking the water. The LDI Lobster shack served whole 1 1/4 lobster dinners with all the trimmings. Delicious! We highly recommend Cove Meadow.
