Immaculate cottage on a peaceful street in the seaside village of Castine, just a lovely 1/2 mile stroll under century-old elm trees past beautiful historic houses to the downtown area and waterfront dock, where you can watch all types of sailing vessels, including restored schooners, sail in and out of the harbor while enjoying an ice cream cone or lobster roll. Cook your own live lobsters (available at the local market) in the furnished lobster pot, or enjoy one at any of several fine restaurants in the village. Enjoy activities in town, including hiking trails through mature forests, kayaking, golf, tennis, sailing, beachcombing, or fishing - or use the cottage as a base to explore the many attractions in the Down East area such as Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Camden, Stonington and Isle au Haut. The cottage is fully furnished with a spacious, modern kitchen with all utensils, and also has a washer/dryer.
My husband , daughter and myself spent a wonderful week relaxing in the Captain's Cottage in Castine, ME. The cottage is spacious, well-equipped and charming. We had use of a Weber Grill for barbecuing, but on nights you don't want to cook you can get dinner at several restaurants in Castine, or drive 20 minutes to Blue Hill where there are numerous restaurants to choose from. The town of Castine is full of history, and is home to the Maine Maritime Academy. We enjoyed looking at the Wilson Museum the Historical Society and the Adams Gallery. Castine is also a little over an hour's drive from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.
The owner of the cottage was great! Barbara is very sweet and attentive to the needs of her guests. When we needed an extra large pot to cook our 4 lobsters in she came over with her mega-sized lobster pot for our use along with bibs and extra lobster crackers!
We would love to return someday, and would definitely recommend this delightful cottage to anyone looking to relax and discover Downeast Maine!
