  • Lovely home base in Wiscasset

    "Our group of 5 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this roomy well-appointed cottage. The listing and photos on this site are perfectly accurate, the property's clean and welcoming, and the owner Ann-Marie's very friendly and helpful. We relaxed in the comfy sun room in the mornings before heading out to Camden, Bath, Portland, Boothbay Harbor, Freeport, and other picturesque towns that are an easy drive from Wiscasset. We strolled the nearby antique stores, and loved that our favorite overstuffed lobster rolls at Red's Eats were only a block or so away! Sarah's Cafe down the street also has terrific food, and the ice cream shop next to Red's was also visited by us many times. Be sure to check out the little booths near Sprague's (across the street from Red's) so you can buy marvelous local fruit jams/jellies/syrups from Forgotten Recipes -- we get them for ourselves and to give as gifts. The spacious dining room table was excellent for playing board and card games, and we also spent an evening in the front parlor (with its beautiful views of the waterway) playing Cards Against Humanity thanks to a couple of handy folding tables. The dining room also supported our feasts when we chose to bring home dinner or use the excellent kitchen amenities. If you like eating whole lobsters, go to Gilman's in nearby Bath -- they'll steam them for you if you wish, and put them in a styrofoam container to keep them hot for the trip back to the house (we returned the container to them the next day) where you can dine in bug-free comfort. Five Islands near Georgetown is also excellent, but bring plenty of bug spray if you eat at the picnic tables. Both places have soft-shell lobsters early and mid-July; not edible like soft-shelled crabs, but very easy to crack open. Having a washer/dryer was handy, allowing us to pack light as we could do laundry as needed. It's great that plenty of linens are provided, too, including towels for swimming use. We may well return to this lovely place in the future. The only drawbacks I can think of are that the staircase to the upper floor is rather steep with narrow treads, and tall people may bump their heads in the upstairs rooms. Terrific vacation spot!"

  • 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"

  • Love Round Pond!

    "My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful week in this lovely, well stocked cottage on the banks of Round Pond, Maine. Laura's driving directions were perfect and we were pleasantly surprised by what we found on arrival. A well stocked, pretty little cottage in the woods. We shared the cottage with our 30 year old niece for the first two nights and the space was perfect for the three of us. The grill worked well for our outdoor cooking needs. Our favorite meals out included two excellent meals at Anhor Inn, a delicious lobster to be had at Muscongus Bay Lobster Co., and morning visits with Dot and Joe at Dot's Bakery, all within two miles of this quaint cottage! We took two trips to the Camden area and enjoye a five-star dining experience at Primo, in Rockland. Day trips included a visit to Damariscotta, a refreshing dip in the Bristol Pond, a bone-chilling swim in the ocean at Pemaquid Beach, the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, and a very fun voyage to Monhegan Island on the Hardy Boat! We've been travelling to Maine annually, from Wisconsin, for over 30 years to visit family in Portland. Being tourists in Maine is a somewhat new experience for us. Round Pond, it's environs, and most of all this lovely cottage, all contributed to one of our best vacations yet! The only drawback was the Mosquitos at sunset. But, the cottage was well stocked with repellant! Oh, who is the little old lady that walks down the hill on the property for her daily swim in the ocean?"

  • A dream 10 days "away" in the perfect house and location

    "this house and wrap-around waterfront property was the perfect, peaceful, true 10-day getaway that we all needed. our adult children joined us, and time and worries from the real world quickly dissolved into days of reading, exploring, photography and fresh summer feasts cooked and enjoyed outside and inside. and countless croquet and badminton matches on the ridiculously picturesque and expansive lawn overlooking maple juice cove. highly recommended sanctuary for anyone in need of an infusion of marine air, electric star and meteor shows, and the rejuvenating powers of mid-coast maine. and yes, plenty of shopping, food, antique and exploring options when needed! enjoy this little piece of heaven on earth..."
