Property description

Our cottage, Sailor's Rest, sits right on the rocks at the ocean's edge (deep water) with views all around. Watch the active lobstering (almost always a lobster boat in sight), recreational boating, and coastal wildlife including eagles and seals. We are on Sabascodegan Island, but you drive right onto it over a 40ft causeway/bridge, so you may not even notice.

Our cottage makes a great home-base for your vacation. Comfortable beds and furniture throughout. Bright and sunny, with gorgeous sunrises and lovely sunset glow. The first floor has a well equipped kitchen with cherry cabinets, a generous sized bathroom with stall shower, a living room (windows on three sides), a dining area, and one bedroom with a queen-size bed. The second floor has two bedrooms, two twin beds in each.

Cundy's Harbor is a quaint, active lobster and fishing harbor that you can drive or walk to. Visit the Holbrook Wharf Restaurant (BYOB) for a summer lunch or dinner, or just ice cream. Visit the cute gift shop and either of the two general stores (Watson's and Holbrook's).

We are centrally located for exploring mid-coast Maine villages. Day-trip options include Camden, Wiscasset, Bath, Boothbay, Portland, Freeport and LL Bean, beaches and parks. Other choices include the Bowdoin College Music Festival, Maine State Theater, many museums, boat rides, walking and hiking trails, etc., etc.

The house/cottage next door has an upstairs and ground floor unit, sleeping two and four... great for a family reunion... privacy for all. See VRBO #24127, 23126 or click on 'Links to more information - All my rental Listings' below.

See many of our VISITOR GUEST BOOK comments by going to the Owner Information section near the end of this VRBO page and link to our web site and 'More Views and Description'.

A recent guest said: 'Waking up so near the water was an extraordinary gift. The stars at night, the seals sunbathing on the rocks, the lobster dinner at Holbrooks, the quiet all made for a sublime retreat.' Another guest said: 'Such a comfortable cottage with so many amenities. The iews were so beautiful from the house. We were able to relax and loved exploring the rocks at low tide. We found lots of treasures! Thank you for sharing the house with us. We had a wonderful time and it is sad to leave.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We love to share this wonderful spot with our visitors. Getting the property ready for rental has been a multi-generational undertaking. We are always interested in suggestions on how we can make our visitors' time in Sailor's Rest even better.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Watching the weather change and the tides come and go is somehow extremely relaxing. But when you are ready to be a tourist there are endless outing possibilities from a day in Boothbay or Camden to a walk on the rocks. The area has all sorts of peninsulas and villages to explore....all with beautiful settings. Be sure to take drives and discover the beauty of our area.
