  • Perfect Family Retreat!

    "We found Ocean View Retreat to be everything promised and more! It was perfect for our multi-generational family with plenty of room to spread out and find a quiet retreat if needed or enjoy time together. The fact that it was clean, well equipped and in a peaceful neighborhood scored big points. We were most grateful and pleased that Tim was willing to work with us on our dates and be so accommodating. One of the best features of the property was the ability to walk to the quarry. We enjoyed the solitude and indescribable beauty and found the complexity of the rock formations to be a great reminder of the intricacy and attention to detail of God's plan and provision. Our favorite outings were tied between Captain Jack's Lobster Boat Tour in Rockland and our drive through Acadia Park. Both should not be missed. We highly recommend this property and would love to return."

  • Fabulous vacation!

    "This is a wonderful place to vacation if you want a quiet, relaxing time. The house has everything you need and more. The view from every window on the back of the house are spectacular and always changing. It's located within 30 minutes of Camden, Rockland, Owls Head, Boothbay Harbor and of course Moody's! We couldn't ask for a nicer vacation."

  • A Wonderful Family Vacation Home!

    "We have just returned from our week of vacation, and would like to recommend both the house and the location. In the past we have rented houses that were less to our liking or needs than the pictures conveyed. We were delighted with this house in every way. Our children and grandchildren came, but with six adults and four little ones we still had plenty of space. The three bathrooms and five bedrooms were so helpful. The fifth bedroom on the downstairs level was set up as a playroom, and the children played happily with toys that were new to them. The kitchen, dining and living room were open and very inviting, and the table was big enough for all of us. The setting is very private, and the path over the bridge to the little island is beautiful. Even on rainy days, the lake was lovely. The houses on the lake are secluded, making the shore line appear untouched except for an occasional dock projecting into the water. We enjoyed the canoe and kayak, and explored the lake and inlets. On sunny days, we visited Pemiquid Beach and Shaw's, which were quite close by. I could mention more, I am sure, but we do hope to return in the future."

  • A Wonderful Week to Remember!

    "We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Buttercup cottage! Clean, comfortable and roomy with an outdoor deck overlooking beautiful Linekin Bay. Plenty of linens, kitchen utensils, pans etc made our stay quite comfortable. We picked up lobsters/steamers from the local fish pier on two nights and had everything we needed to cook them at the cottage and enjoyed our feast while sitting on the deck! The bed was quite comfortable. Although there is no A/C, we enjoyed the cool breezes off the bay in the evening. There are two fans available if you should need them. We brought our kayak and were able to bring it across the street to Barrett's Park and kayak all around the bay. The cottage is within walking distance to town, maybe a 10-15 walk. The owners couldn't be nicer and were happy to point out all the great local places to visit. Their recommendations for dining were spot on! We had a wonderful week exploring Boothbay Harbor, New Harbor, a day at Monhegan Island, kayaking to Burnt Island light house, Maine's Botanical Garden and the many hiking preserves with well marked trails nearby. Don't forget to go to Wiscasset and lunch at Red's Eats. An awesome lobster roll experience!! The lines start early, be prepared. Buttercup had all the comforts of home. The eclectic decor was fascinating and tastefully thought out and displayed. Each day, I'd notice something that hadn't caught my eye previously. We would highly recommend a stay at Buttercup. We look forward to a return visit in the future. There's still much more exploring of Maine's mid coast to do."

Mid-Coast & Islands Travel Tips

Maine Rentals for Picturesque Convenience

If you are looking for a vacation destination that is charming and rustic, consider booking one of the many Maine rentals. This small but robust state has a wealth of attractions to offer. For a short stay in Maine, consider one of the cozy Maine cottages. If you are planning to stay longer, other Maine lodging options may be better choices.

Maine Rentals Are Full of Amenities

The rugged coastline of Maine, dotted with picturesque lighthouses, will provide you with a vacation like no other. To truly make the most of your time here, it is important to make sure that you have selected the best Maine lodging. While you could certainly rent a hotel room, Maine rentals such as vacation homes and Maine cottages provide so many additional benefits. After spending a long day exploring the coastline, checking out the quaint shops and treating yourself to Maine lobster, it will be nice to be able to return back to a comfortable vacation rental. Most of the rental homes in the state provide amenities that you will not find in hotel rooms, such as full kitchens, spacious living areas, fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs.

Maine Cottages Offer So Much to Do nearby

During your time in Maine, you may wish to take one of the historical tours offered in many of the towns throughout the state. This is a great way to learn more about the local area. Another option to consider is getting in some time fishing or boating, both of which are quite popular throughout the state. Your Maine rentals will be conveniently located for you to enjoy all of these activities.

Maine Lodging in the Fall

If you plan your trip to Maine during the fall, there is simply nothing better than taking a scenic drive through the byways and enjoying the glorious fall foliage. After returning to one of the Maine cottages you have rented, build a roaring fire and snuggle under a cozy blanket. Bookings for Maine lodging can be easily made online, allowing you many cottages or larger vacation homes to choose from for your upcoming trip.
