Super quiet and relaxing
We are avid readers, kayakers and nature watchers, so this setting was perfect. We lacked for nothing. The screened porch, the living room and the bedrooms all had very comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well-stocked. The path to the dock is VERY steep so I was very grateful for the gentle boat launch a five-minute walk away. I could leave my kayak there for the week and head out for pre-dawn paddles easily. A most enjoyable stay !
Relaxing space in a quiet cove
We loved, loved, loved the location! A short drive out of Brunswick , the house sits off a dirt road in a private community. Your private dock is a quick, but steep climb down from the house and we immediately saw a bald eagle and several ospreys fishing the cove. (Bring your binoculars!) We brought the kayak and left it on the dock the whole week. You can only paddle out at high tide, as the cove becomes almost completely dry at low tide (you can purchase local clams at Holbrooks at the end of Cundy's Harbor Rd.) You can always access the point at the end of the road and leave your kayak there in a pinch (or put in there if you don't like dropping in off a dock.) Harry and Mary leave you with parking passes for the point as well as a couple of bikes. They were easy to communicate with leading up to and during our stay. The screened in porch was a lifesaver with the mosquitos, and we ate all our meals out there. The house was equipped with just about everything we needed for cooking and grilling. Our only complaint was that all of the throw pillows could use replacing, With the nature of Maine coastal living, they were all super musty and old. Overall, a great spot for a quiet getaway in central coast Maine!
Beautiful home in a beautiful location
We stayed in this home for three weeks and couldn't have been happier. The owners were responsive, clear and helpful, the house itself was very clean and beautifully furnished, and the location was perfect. When the tide was high, we spent our time sitting out on the dock or swimming with our dogs. I was working in Brunswick and the commute was fairly easy. There are tons of walking/hiking trails nearby, there's great food in the area, and it was nice to be near both Brunswick and Bath. It was everything we were looking for and we can't wait to return!
Wonderful rental property
We had a week at this location and couldn't have asked for more, had everything we needed. Spend most of our time on the screened in porch until it was to dark out to see anything of read our books. Morning coffee was so relaxing out on the porch as well. The cottage was very clean and well furnished. We also liked the area and kayaking in this area.
The listing description was accurate, and the property was well maintained. We would recommend and will recommend this location to our friends if they are headed to Maine.
We hit the Salt Cod Cafe, the Sea Dog in Brunswick, Hawks Lobster at Cundy's Harbor, Morses Cribstone Grill, on Bailey Island.
Went to the "Giant Steps" several time just to sit and watch the ocean, beautiful location. We will return next year if we can.
Thanks Harry and Mary for a great week.
Numerous villages and historic towns dot the area. Picturesque Cundy's Harbor is at the tip of the peninsula, with 2 seafood restaurants and views of Harpswell Sound.
The town of Brunswick (a 15 minute drive) offers a variety of restaurants and shops. Many fine colonial, federal and Victorian homes grace the downtown area. Other attractions include an extensive antiques and flea market, and the attractive Bowdoin College campus. The college has a fine art museum and the Maine State Theater.
The historic port city of Bath is a short distance north of Brunswick. Georgetown, Wiscasset, Damariscotta and Freeport all make great daytrips.
