Shady Potts Point Cottage Cooled by Ocean Breezes

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights


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.

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!

Quintessential Picturesque Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog Oliver had a wonderful time at Shady Potts. Molly has provided her guests with all the essentials to make your stay totally relaxing and comfortable. The views from the house and from every angle outside are phenomenal. The walk ability and scenery in the area is breathtaking and the beach combing is a great pastime while there. We also enjoyed our little trips to Bailey and Orrs Islands with all their charm and beauty. We fell in love with this picturesque and peaceful spot and plan to return next summer!!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our family at the Pott's Point Cottage. The location is wonderful - very peaceful and quiet. The lobster wharf, sunsets, and general atmosphere are excellent. The cottage was very well equipped and provided a relaxing experience for the entire family - we highly recommend this to anyone looking to experience Maine in a quiet and cozy setting. We look forward to visiting again!
