We arrived on a glorious day, and am thankful for the advice to arrive on Sunday, since our departure from Maine the following Saturday showed backups for miles with all the people trying to get in to the great state of Maine! The cottage is as pictured with both east and west views-warm sun on your face at breakfast and then sunsets out on the "slab" were wonderful even on our cloudy and foggy days. We were greeted and welcomed by Jim and Anne, and had all our things over in one trip, and learned all we needed quickly. I loved hearing the one of the homes in view across the bay was part of the Wyeth family at one point in time. We spent most of our time near the waters edge, looking for treasure, watching boats going by and kayaking. We did not have great weather so some days were spent indoors by the fire reading, playing games, etc. The heavy fog made us want to stay in instead of crossing over to the mainlaind. The boys (ages 9, 11) became quite skilled at badminton and loved playing at all hours, even in the rain. The outdoor shower was quite a hit, and it was easier to get the young boys to shower due to it. If you are a tall female you might wish the wall was a bit higher. ;-) We had lobster daily and enjoyed the prices at the PC General store, $3.35/lb. all the days we were there. The cottage had everything we needed and wanted. The trail through the back of the island was a bit overgrown for my boys to fight through but we had plenty of other things to do. We only saw one neighbor and this was limited too. All in all, a wonderful time! We would have liked better weather, but there is nothing that Nancy and Jeff can do about that. I would/will recommend this to any one who likes the privacy and beauty that Maine has to offer. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Nancy and Jeff are delightful people and they have a wonderful get-away. It is a bit more rustic than this city girl would have liked, but this wasn't my vacation (I got Ireland last year). My husband, my two girls (nearly 3 and 4 1/2), and our dog thought they had died and gone to heaven. And I have to say, by the end of the week, I had cast off my citified ways and really was enjoying the island pace. Almost wish we had stayed another week. The views are gorgeous, and the beachcombing is almost thearputic (shells and seaglass EVERYWHERE). The cottage is well built, with definite nautical elements. We had generally good weather and, other than the day we arrived, had no need for the kerosene heater. (I recommend paying close attention to the instructions on how to light it . I generally stay away from flamables, and my husband had a difficult time with it.) Having use of the skiff was great. It is easy to operate and it got us back and forth to Port Clyde, where we caught the 2 1/2 hour puffin cruise (another great adventure) and stopped for lunch. In terms of good seafood, it is all around you, but Doug's Seafood (1 mile outside of Port Clyde) has a great lobster stew. We stopped at the Trader Joe's in Portland on our way in, and it was a good thing; the General Store is pricey and doesn't have a lot of variety. But I'd wait until you are closer to get your seafood. The closer to Port Clyde you get, the cheaper it is. The galley kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, and an eclectic mix of spices. And there is a small pot of herbs on the porch. Like the kerosene heater, the oven is a bit tricky, but I got it to work well enough to bake a cake (and I don't bake). We needed to do a couple of loads of laundry while we were there (kids!). We took advantage of the clothesline, but needed to go to Rockland (about 20 miles away) for a laundry. Wouldn't you know, my daughter's greatest memory of Maine was rolling down the grassy hill in the park next to the laundromat. Talk about glee! Perfect childhood moment. Really this is a nice getaway spot. Great for families. Friendly neighbors (if you see them), and a great introduction to Maine. I took 3 books with me to read. I thought I would at least get a chance to read after the kids were in bed. I was so exhausted from all the fun and fresh air that most nights I fell asleep before I could turn the page.
