Sunsets, lobsters, & lighthouses.
Our stay at the cottage was wonderful. Weather was pretty good most of the week. Cottage was clean and comfortable. Kitchen space was small, but not an issue if you visited any of the number of local establishments to eat. Screened in porch was wonderful for the breeze and seeing the sunsets daily. Could easily see the water through the trees and watch the lobster boats as they pulled their traps. Owner was very hospitable in our interactions. A great place for a couple or small family. Lack of TV forced us to read daily (not a bad thing at all!).

Owner response: Thank you for taking such care of the cottage.
The cottage was exactly like the pictures. The screened porch was so delightful, we used it for dining, relaxing, playing games, etc. The cool breezes and the sound of the water made the porch particularly relaxing. The cottage was clean, we were welcomed with a note and special touches by the owner,like candys on the beds, fresh flowers in the rooms, all in all, just a very welcoming feeling. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone...as long as you aren't into cooking. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots and dishes but is very small, impossible for more than one person to be in at a time. Even with the small kitchen I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. It was a very special place.

Lovely Cottage, Great Family Vacation

We had such a wonderful time at this very clean and comfortable cottage. Our family enjoyed our nightly sunset walks to the water. Pemaquid Lighthouse is a walk away also. The Sea Gull shop next to the lighthouse is an awsome restaurant to enjoy breakfast and to see the lobster boats in the ocean. The Hardy Boat ride to see the seals was an adventure and we enjoyed fresh lobster and steamers at Shaws. It is fun to head into Damariscotta and Wiscasett for antiquing. Reny's and the Mid Coast Book Store are a must stop. The Rexall Drugstore serves up a nice Coffee Frappe at the soda fountain. Close to the cottage there is a beautiful sandy beach to enjoy and jump into the refreshing salt water.We rented kayaks and paddled into Pemaquid Harbour. So many more activities to do for all. We will definitely come back for another summer vacation, The owner is very accomodating and gave us many suggestions of places to see and visit.
