Property description

This delightful Harpswell cottage is located steps from the water with an expansive view of the Atlantic Ocean. Relax on the covered wrap-around porch and enjoy your morning coffee and picturesque evening sunsets in this classic waterfront home. Enjoy your vacation-filled days watching Lobsterman haul their traps and leisure boats stroll by, go blueberry picking along the property or host a lobster-bake for your family reunion. Be adventurous and use the skiff, try some fishing, and explore the inlet or wide-open waters. At low-tide, walk out to Pig Island and comb the shoreline for seashells and sea glass and maybe even some clams for dinner!

This private, pet-friendly, 5 bedroom, 1 ½ bath cottage provides everything you’ll need for a fabulous vacation. The first floor features a full kitchen, ½ bath, breakfast nook, dining room, library sitting area and living room with stone-hearth fireplace. The second floor features 5 bedrooms. 2 of the rooms have queen beds, 1 has a double bed, 1 has 2 twin beds, and 1 single bedroom. 4 of these bedrooms have water views! Home is equipped with washer/dryer, dishwasher, 4 televisions, DVD/VCR system, BBQ grill, kayaks, fishing poles, fans, ironing boards, full linens, books & games, and crib (upon request).

Spend your days around the property fishing, swimming, playing croquet or just relaxing on the pier. Drive a few minutes to visit Stover’s Cove, the Cribstone Bridge, Estes Lobster House, Cooks Lobster House, The Giant Steps, Bailey Island and gift shops. Within 2 miles of the cottage, you have access to water skiing, shopping, restaurants, bird watching and nature preserves. Within 10 miles, you have access to Shopping, Theatres (movie and live at Bowdion College), Museums, Art Galleries, Rental Car agencies, and large Super Market. Within 25 miles, you have access to commercial fishing excursions, and airports. The 'handbook' located at the cottage is also filled with additional information you'll find useful once you arrive.

We guarantee you’ll enjoy your stay at Wildwood. Email us with any questions and be sure to reserve your week(s) well in advance. Weekend and Nightly rates also available. Accepting reservations 12 months in advance.
