Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Quaint and lovely cottage, shaded by huge trees and cooled by off-shore breezes in historic Potts Point. Start the day with a cup of coffee while curled up on the glassed-in side porch with a book, end the day watching the sunset over the water from the front porch. Wander to the beach or buy lobsters straight off the boat at Dick's down the road. Take in the lobster boat races after a short walk to Pott's Point. Enjoy farmers markets, restaurants and the Maine State Music Theater in Brunswick and then come home to the peace of Harpswell.

A charming Victorian cottage in an intimate traditional seaside village

  • 5 of 5

This fully-equipped Victorian cottage is delightful and fully captures the 19th century magic of Potts Point, in a well-maintained and updated fashion. Crossing over the stone causeway to the former island of Potts Point one encounters a charming small `traditional' seaside community with every amenity that families want for summer activities - swimming, boating/kayaking, ambling in tide pools, and the chance to enjoy lobster/seafood meals at the much-improved Estes Lobster House or a short drive to other good restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in this cottage, in July 2017.

Terrific sweet cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage, perfect for me and my sisters and niece. The sunroom is fantastic, where we put together several puzzles. The walk to Potts Point was very nice and we also enjoyed Seaglass Beach. Really quiet and "un-fussy".

Perfect summer cottage getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay here in early June! I thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous view while sitting on the front porch and sipping coffee in the morning. It's an easy walk to Potts Point for even more spectacular views. We even saw two bald eagles soaring in the sky!

It's also an easy drive to Brunswick and Freeport. This property has a great location in a beautiful part of the world.

Little Gem by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our daughter Hannah and I stayed at Shady Potts Point Cottage the weekend of September 17th. The cottage was a cozy, beautiful spot for the last weekend of Summer. There is a lovely sun porch where I had coffee both mornings. The front porch is wonderful to watch the sunset and the sea. There are plenty of opportunities for long walks. Points Point is an easy walk where we enjoyed collecting seashells and just being near the ocean. The cottage has everything you would need to cook meals - and there are several nice restaurants nearby. Dick's Lobster and Crab Shack is a 3 minute walk, where you can get fresh lobster to cook at home.

Our mother, who turned 88 that weekend, lives in a senior assisted living facility in Brunswick. We had her birthday party on the sun porch - she is still talking about what a perfect setting and special day it was for her.

Thank you for sharing your home with us....I wish I was sitting on the sun porch right now!
