Cundys Harbor apartment description
We have the perfect location to relax and enjoy the scenic Maine coast. We are on Sabascodegan Island, but you drive right onto it over a 40ft bridge...you may not even notice it. This is a nicely furnished, ground-floor, studio apartment in a two story house. We overlook Hopkins Island and Dingley Cove and the picturesque Maine shorelines beyond.
Hopkins View has a large, fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and dining area and a bathroom with a tub and shower. The living room has a couch and a love-seat with views out a picture window. The bedroom which has just three walls (thus we must call this a studio...open on the living room side) has a quality queen-size bed.
We have lovely views of the water from two sides of the apartment. You are just feet from the water and can watch the active lobstering, recreational boating, and coastal wildlife. You have use of a BBQ and a small yard for sitting outside or eating at your picnic table. You'll enjoy lovely sunrises and beautiful evening light. We have the perfect spot to launch your kayak or canoe. A small public boat ramp is nearby. And we have a deep water mooring; ask about it if interested.
Take a walk into Cundy's Harbor. Buy your fresh lobsters at Watson's General Store and have them in a pot in minutes. (You can walk down to the water and choose yours right out of the holding box.) Cundy's Harbor is a gem! A quaint, active fishing harbor with a small summer restaurant on the wharf, a cute gift shop and little general store. You can walk to Cundy's Harbor.
There is an upstairs apartment that sleeps four and a cottage next door that sleeps six... could be a great setup for a couple families wanting to be near... but not too close. VRBO #s 24127 and 24124. You can see our other VRBO listings by going to the 'Links to More Information - All My Rental Listings' below.

A wonderful week
A wonderful week
What a great place for a romantic week! Clean, comfortable bed, spacious kitchen, appliances and plumbing all in working order so there was nothing to distract us from having a wonderful time enjoying the natural setting, which is beautiful. We got lucky with the weather and ate outside on the picnic table for nearly every meal, taking in the scenery, watching the water birds. Though we were in the downstairs unit of a two unit cottage, it felt very private.

Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, sightseeing.
We found this rental to be in a lovely quiet spot on the Maine coast in a quiet neighborhood. We took many day trips in the area and discovered a part of Maine that we have never visited before. The view from the rental is picturesque Maine with the lobstermen checking their traps right in front of the cottage. We launched our Kayaks off the front lawn and explored the many islands and inlets.The cottage has everything one could need from WiFI to a well equiped kitchen. We thouroughly enjoyed it! Gail
