wonderful cottage with great view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Northcliffe. The weather was perfect also, beautiful days sitting on the screened in porch looking across the bay to the islands. The cottage was neat clean and cozy and had everything you need to be comfortable. Peaks is a fun place to visit lots of places to walk and enjoy the outdoors. Thanks David and Mary for letting us come and stay again G & S.

Wonderful rustic cottage with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Northcliffe!

The description of the view does no justice! It was fabulous! Whether you were sitting on the screened porch (no bugs!) or playing with the kids on the "front lawn" the views across the bay and to the Diamond Islands was breathtaking!

The cottage was very well kept and clean and exactly what I would've expected. If your looking for "luxury" accommodations, look elsewhere, this cottage was campy, kitschy and cute! It was like walking into your grandma's cottage that had been in the family for years! We loved it's character!

We are a young family with a toddler and we had friends and family and kids in and out all week with no problems.

We cooked quite a bit in the kitchen, which was equipped with everything we needed (including everything to cook and eat lobsters!)

You do need to bring (or rent) linens, but the cottage was equipped with lots of blankets to take the chill off during those cool nights! They also had a few fans just in case.

There was a wonderful small private beach a very short walk away. The beach was perfect to just hang out at or to take kayaks out of! All the children had a great time going there or stopping half-way to climb along the rocks when the tide was out.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay. The whole Haeger Family was wondeful and accommodating hosts who made sure we were not in need of anything during our whole stay!

Beautiful view of Casco Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Northcliff, the camp was expected as advertised. David and Mary were great hosts, they even offered to bring us back to camp if we were going to leave our car down front in line for the ferry boat back to Portland.We enjoyed the beautiful view of Casco bay islands, watching the boats go by. Even had a lobster boat pull traps out in front of our cottage. Thanks for a great vacation,we hope to visit again.
