Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented cottages for the last 4 years. Your cabin was by far the nicest. Very clean and nicely outfitted. Feels like your cabin is a home, not just a commercial rental......We are hopeful you'll have a space for us next year

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
