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.

Idyllic Maine cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed two nights in the middle of an intense college search weekend and we so enjoyed it! It was cozy enough to promote quality togetherness while also allowing us our own space. The best room in the house was the sun porch where we ate breakfast and spent time perusing the home's library. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the two beaches and came home with some fabulous sea glass finds! The owners were very responsive to our questions/needs and did their best to ensure a hospitable stay.

Thanks again Molly!

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".
