Other Amenities

  • Great location for Bowdoin College reunion, homecoming or parents weekend, especially if you were on the sailing team! Quiet setting on dirt road with little to no traffic. 1 mile walk to the ocean on a very quiet paved road with ocean views. 30 minutes to all the outlet shopping you can imagine in Freeport, home of L.L.Bean! 30 minutes to Boothbay Harbor, but honestly this community of Cundy's Harbor is much more charming - with a quaint gift show, general store and fabulous wharf restaurant for lobster rolls and other local specialties....moreless

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has been summering in this part of Maine since 1900 and feel so fortunate to be able to spend time in such an authentic, unspoilt and accessible part of the coast. We hope you will come and enjoy it too!

Why the Owner Chose Harpswell Center:
This cottage has been in the family for decades and three generations have memories of eating whoopie pies in the kitchen. Hoover the harbor seal even lived in the pond one summer while he was being rehabilitated before moving to the Boston aquarium.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage has a long history and rooms are traditionally small with the exception of the spacious living room. Exposed beams in the second floor bedrooms could be a challenge for tall guests. This is a great house for a family, but may feel tight for 6 adults who intend to stay inside all day (who would want to do that anyway?). We prepare the cottage for short term rental in the summer, but please inquire if you would like to discuss a longer term rental off season.
