About Diana StPierre
My husband and I found this property while taking a walk in the area. We own another property within walking distance. We loved that it was right on the water. It was a falling down shack, which my husband lovingly redid over the course of two years. We love having it near our other place as we have a big family and it gives us a chance to spread out.
Diana StPierre purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Diana StPierre chose Harpswell
We bought property in this area because my husband's family is from Maine and summered on Cundy's Harbor. We live in Ct. As a boy his family always vacationed at the family camp in Cundy's Harbor, as we did when we had children. As our family grew we needed more room, loved the area, and decided to buy property.
What makes this Cottage unique
We love that this property is at the end of dead end road, so very quiet. And of course you can't beat the view of the criibstone bridge across the water. We love watching the lobster boats go by, and to get those cooling ocean breezes on a warm summer day.

Lovely and so relaxing!!!!
So lovely and homey. Relax and sit out back and watch the birds and boats. So much Serenity!!!
A writers escape and home movies - I loved it!
Initially, it looked small. The inside was perfect and nicely laid out. We ate local seafood, a bit of sightseeing, movie watching, writing, and reading. We never used the stove once, tho' it was a nice addition, should we have needed it. It was a watery escape with the birds. It was quiet and I slept the best ever.
Seascape in Harpswell, Maine
The cottage was adorable and exceptionally clean. Location was wonderful - quiet and serene and ideal for a week of relaxation. Owners left a manual of things to do and places to go and we experienced many of them - all interesting and fun. The beaches were low key and within small coves and bays and that's what we wanted. Surprisingly, living on Lake Champlain on the Canadian border, we experience much rougher water, waves, and wind. We love our home but it's nice to experience a different environment and Maine is so lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful and well-stocked cottage.
This is a gorgeous, serene, quiet place on the water. My husband and I needed a respite, and this place caught us beautifully. Maine has so much to offer. We enjoyed getting out to the beach, visiting nearby harbors, and getting on a boat tour! We mostly enjoyed the quiet of the house; reading and writing near the water. Loved it here and hope to come back!
No drive way
Hard to find, no house number by road, had drive between two houses through grass...very wet due to rain..cause ruts when arriving in dark..next day neighbor came out to complain about owner and ruts. Doorknob with key box hard to grasp it to open...tripping hazard in grass unlit metal septic tank cover maybe?? Can,t use water between 9 & 10 pm due to flush System. Upside of stay great view total windows across length of cottage...
Lovely, extremely comfortable house in a very private setting.
THE HOUSE: I loved the house. Looks small outside but never felt small inside. Large windows all the way across water side were special! Beautiful morning light,lovely ocean breezes, the sound of rippling water. Kitchen was well stocked. Furniture, comfortable. Nice bedroom! Slept better there than at home. (It's nice to wake up to coastal sounds.)The owner has taken great care to make it feel homey and welcoming. Even though there are a couple of houses nearby, It felt secluded and indeed, is a good distance from any beaten path.The house is only a few yards from a very steep drop down to the water. A Peregrine Falcon dined in tree next to house. It could not have been more comfortable. THE AREA: There are a few good restaurants within about 10 min. drive. Harpswell really doesn't have a town center. There are a couple of markets scattered around to buy provisions but true grocery shopping would be done in Brunswick. That never bothered us. We always enjoyed the ride through some pretty countryside. When arriving, it's a good idea to buy groceries in New Brunswick before arriving at the house. Seascape is a great base from which to take lots of excursions. Harpswell area is loaded with good hiking areas with interesting topography...woodland, ocean's edge, or rocky coast. Seascape was exactly what we were looking for.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Seascape. We also love the views and on a sunny day to way up to the water sparkling like diamonds.
