Lovely rustic cottage right on the sea

  • 5 of 5

Sweet, rustic cottage right on the Maine coast with sleepy days spent lounging on the deck watching lobster boats coming and going. Walk to great seafood down the end of the road, kayak from your cottage, or just read one of the many books from their bookshelves or do a puzzle while listening to the waves lapping against the shore. Lovely!

Only thing I'd wish for is a floating dock on which to sit and access the water more easily with my kayak.

We could not have been happier.

  • 5 of 5

We can not say enough about this property. We have not been to this area in 15 years, and had a great time. The house is a typical rustic Maine property. Right on the water, and excluded. It was within 45 minutes from all we wanted to see, including Brunswick, LL Bean, the Maine Maritime Museum and all of the areas of Harpswell such as Bailey's Island, Cundy's Harbour and Potts Point. Fresh lobster was 7 minutes away. We were able to dine at very nice restaurants, eat lunch outside at a couple of wharfs and get fresh seafood to cook at the house. There was even a farm that we could get range free chicken eggs and fresh area fruits. The kids had a great time swimming at high tide. Jean was easy to work with, and very friendly. We had no problems whatsoever. When we go back to this area, we will do our best to schedule it so we can use this property again. We travel a lot, and the kids tell us whether we want to try something new. They want to return to this house. Thank you Jean.

Comfortable, cozy cottage with amazing water views

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 nights at this wonderful cottage and plan to return for a week this summer. The photos of the house don't do it justice. It is a large, comfortably furnished, fully-equipped home with amazing water views from the living room and master bedroom. It is "off the beaten path" yet very close to a great lobster pound (Erica's seafood) and lots of beach walks, and 12 miles from Brunswick. The owner is lovely, easy-going and accommodating (she got the house ready at the last minute when our other rental fell through). We can't wait to return when the weather is warmer.

Great location for beach walks and tide pool exploration. Swimming,

sailing, canoeing, or kayaking (rentals available in the area)

fishing right off the dock. 13 miles from Brunswick, and one mile

down the road,from the Dolphin Marina & Restaurant, and one mile to

Bibber's lobster on Ash Point.
