The cottage has suited my family so well that we return year after year. I always find it open, clean, and welcoming. The floor plan maximizes connection to sea and sky, while minimizing housekeeping. Over the years I have had visitors there ranging in age from infancy to 85. Everyone loves it. We enjoy swimming, exploring the intertidal life, eating lobster, and excursions into Brunswick for Bowdoin's outstanding music offerings. If you have a sea kayak, there are lots of lovely coves and islands to explore. A place to relax, read, and enjoy!

This lovely two bedroom cottages sits at the crest of a hill providing beautiful water views on both sides through its many large windows. While it's bedrooms are cozy, the common areas are very generous allowing us to easily host a cook-out for relatives in the area. We were pleased by the the cottages appointments which included a gas grill, dishwasher, microwave, DVD player and wireless Internet access. Furthermore, we were delighted by the thoughful supplies provided by the owner which included first aid supplies, a tool kit, paper picnic goods, plastic sandwich bags, a selection of DVDs and more. We truly enjoyed out stay and look forward to returning in the future.

This house wasn’t a very good fit for us and our 5 year-old granddaughter during the week beginning Saturday, 24 July 2010. In spite of the advertisement there was no Internet access available! The house was open according to plan when we arrived late Saturday evening expecting to find the key as promised on an entry table but located it instead on an eye-level hook above the table. Before turning in for the night we closed and locked the windows against an upcoming rain storm and found the rotary handle for one was missing and another was not functional. We found on one side of the house that the two bedrooms and bath were private enough – with shutters for the bottoms of the windows. But the large room comprising the rest of the house and consisting of living, dining, kitchen, and entry area were lined with windows with no window covering available at all and were within easy view of the adjacent house. Instead of the expected DVD player there was a VHS tape player. There was cable TV but the cable modem for broadband Internet access was missing. The TV was connected directly to the cable outlet instead of via the cablebox even though a cablebox was present. When I went to the car to bring in luggage I closed the door and returned to find the lock in the door knob had locked. I had my wife open the door from the inside and noted I’d need to keep the key with me in the future. The key fit both it and a key lock that was operated from the inside by a deadbolt “throw.” I checked the back door and learned it could be locked with a deadbolt from the inside by raising the handle and turning the deadbolt “throw.” But from the outside there was no way to “throw” it open or close it with a key since there was no keyhole on the outside. On Sunday morning I dressed for church but found no tips on locations or times for services nor maps with points of possible interest. However, I did find a readily accessible phonebook including yellow pages which sufficed to find churches and phone numbers for times – though still no map. The nearest city (approximately 13 miles away) is Brunswick.

"We've had a wonderful week-What a lovely area this is- so peaceful. The cottage is comfortable and so well stocked-thank you. I read the book Gift From The Sea while I was here- and got much more out of it at 48 then i did in my early 20's. Twice we had a lobster dinner; what a thrill to have it right at our doorstep. We certainly hope to return to Harpswell someday."

About the owner: Hello! My name is Jena Merryman. I am proud wife, mother, sister and daughter. My sweet mother-in-law, Karen, passed away very young in 1996. My father and mother in law were going to retire in this home together. Now we have it as a gift to share with others. This Evergreen Ave. cottage was one of Karen's favorite places and projects. This house is very dear to our family. I am delighted to run the cottage for my family. I have met some of the most wonderful people- who have come to vacation with us in Harpswell, Maine. Come enjoy a piece of heaven with us.
