  • Love all the Updates

    "I just loved the new bedroom linen updates. The Master bedroom transformation was so beautiful. I loved the single bedroom too! The kicker were the two ceiling fans, one in the Master and one in the kitchen. I didn't get to use the grill this time but that is great addition for next time."

  • Perfect vacation

    "We spent a week in July at the Camp with our two sons, grandparents and a dog. We all had something interesting to do. Family time, serene scenery of the Sandy Pond, woods, listening to birds chirping, fishing, sailing, canoeing, day trips to hike in Acadia National Park, grilling, eating meals out on the deck, bird watching, swimming in the lake, those were only few of the attractions that we enjoyed. The advertising description of the camp was very accurate and the cabin included all home luxuries one my need, full kitchen, comfy beds, full bath, toys/books for kids, TV with DVD player, and even some good movies. The owner came by early in the morning to put up a sailboat for us to use, Grandpa sailed every day and took our sons to learn the skill of sailing. The owners also left us a crate of eggs from their free range chickens, what a nice welcome! Our minds, souls and bodies were rejuvenated during that week of vacation. It was exactly if not even more than we dreamed of, even the weather cooperated. We would go back there in a heartbeat. We would recommend this Private Family Camp to all who love nature, enjoy active recreation and are looking for peace and quiet."

  • Perfect Maine Getaway

    "Just got back from our stay at the Weathered Gray Cottage. What a great spot! My wife and I have an eight-month-old baby, so we're beholden to feeding and nap schedules. Serious excursions from the cottage up and down the coast were not an option. That was fine. We enjoyed cooking out and eating at the picnic table, strolling to town with our dog, having a glass of wine or a cup of coffee on the wonderful porch. We lived outside the whole week. I think my posterior wore a groove in the porch rocker. Our golden retriever didn't want to come back to the city. The cottage is not directly on the water but you can see the harbor through breaks in the trees and the yard and porch get plenty of sun when you want it. At night all you hear is the wind in the leaves, the slop of water, and the muffled bong of a bell on a buoy out in the harbor. Perfect. I also appreciated the little touches that made for a pleasant stay—the ceiling fan for keeping things airy, the bookcase full of vacation reads, the kitchen knives that were actually sharp (we cooked a lot), and the comfortable cushions for the deck chairs. On top of all this comfort and convenience, we found the owners responsive and pleasant and the experience to be an excellent value generally. I should also mention that, for a place that accepts dogs and children (like ours), the house was spotless when we arrived. The cottage is smallish and somewhat old-fashioned (small bedrooms, wood paneling, older bathroom). Large parties looking for lots of individual privacy or those looking for ultra-modern, luxe accommodations may be disappointed but they certainly should not feel misled. It's an old cottage. That's the way they were made. The cottage is clean, well maintained, nicely decorated, and reasonably priced. We found it to be better than advertised and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The Weathered Gray Cottage recalled the best parts of our childhood vacations to Cape Cod only it is much better appointed. The location is also a plus. It's a very short drive to Port Clyde and pretty close to Rockland as well. If you go, you MUST try Waterman's Beach Lobster and Dorman's Dairy Dream in Thomaston (both are close and worth traveling to Maine to patronize). I'm recommending the Weathered Gray Cottage to the rest of our family and I think we'll stay there again in the future. Thanks to the owners for a memorable and restorative vacation"

Alna Travel Tips

Alna Vacation Rentals for Luxury and Privacy

If you're looking for Main Coast Islands cottages, then vacation rentals will be your best option. It can be difficult to find the right balance between having the amenities that you want and picking the price that you can afford. This kind of Alna lodging provides the best of both worlds, offering luxury amenities, ideal location, and an affordable price. Accommodations include kitchens, spacious rooms, large beds, a place to do laundry, and home theater systems. Beyond the normal extras, these locations offer more privacy than you'll find at a hotel. When traveling with large groups or for more than a brief stay, you'll notice a large savings when you book Alna vacation rentals.

Alna Lodging: History Just Outside Your Doorstep

Alna was founded in 1760, and though it has seen a couple of name changes over the centuries, much of the rest remains the same. The area is noted for its historic architecture, with the mill village of Head Tide being a stand-out. Other attractions include the Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway Museum. Outside the town, beautiful areas of natural beauty abound with forested hills and hiking trails. Don't let this mislead you into thinking that this small town doesn't offer culture. Fine dining and the arts thrive in Alna and other nearby cities.

Plenty to Do Outside Maine Coast Islands Cottages

Beyond Alna vacation rentals, you'll find other cities to explore, with Newcastle being just a few minutes away. Newcastle is a beautiful center for the arts that has places to eat and shop. An hour away, Portland will provide you with enough things to do that there will be no problem filling your time. Let Alna lodging put you in the center of it all at an affordable price. You'll enjoy soaking up all that Maine has to offer when you book Alna vacation rentals.
