"We shared this house w another family and there was more than enough room! Portland and Freeport were within a reasonable drive, we even went to a Seadogs game! The home was immaculate and the outside yard and dock provided much space for our two families. There was nothing that the owners forgot to provide, going above and beyond to make sure the home was well kept and stocked! The neighborhood is quiet and on a dirt loop road where there was no traffic. The only large vehicles that came through were a garbage truck and construction trucks for next door (one day of loud noise). Parents can feel safe knowing their kids are outside playing! The pictures of the home do not do it justice... The view is something to be seen in person! Our only request is we wished there was a ladder of some sort on the dock as one of us got scraped by the barnicles. Not a deal breaker at all! We hope to visit again!"

"We stayed at this lovely home for a week. We had 4 adults 3 children and 2 dogs and the property had everything we needed and PLENTY of space and comfortable amenities. We were thrilled to find a place that is pet-friendly! We swam, kayaked, clammed at low tide, and paddle boarded off the rocky beach in Atkins Bay. We enjoyed many meals at home - with amazing views from the deck. The kids and dogs enjoyed exploring the terrain and found wild blueberries growing in the backyard. We all slept and hung out very comfortably with room to spare. The climate is fantastic and we enjoyed sleeping with cool breezes coming through the many windows at night. The kids enjoyed downtime watching their favorite shows (cable and wifi easy to connect to). We enjoyed taking walks through the wooded neighborhood. There is ample parking on the property for multiple vehicles and plenty of storage. The property owners go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay and are very easy to get in touch with should you need anything or need to ask for recommendations. There are great restaurants and beaches and convenience shops nearby. Stores: Percy's (postcards and t-shirts) and Bisson's. Restaurants we dined in Spinney's (Phippsburg), The Taste of Maine (Bath), Kelmar's (Boothbay Harbour), the Snack Bar (Small Point), The Five Islands Lobster Co. (Georgetown) - fresh cooked lobsters, BYOB, outdoor dining with gorgeous views- highly recommend!! and Otto's (Portland). Places we visited and highly recommend: Popham Beach State Park- beach pass included with your stay (spacious, pristine beach with treasures galore to be found including sand dollars - climbing on rocky islands at low tide and the clearest ocean I have ever swam in), Fort Popham, Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse (near Portland), LL Bean (Freeport), Boothbay Harbor (quaint with great shops), and Georgetown. Be sure to stop at Shaw's off of Rt 1 in Bath to do your major grocery shopping before you arrive. We highly recommend this property and hope to be back again soon. This is the place to go if you want to relax and create wonderful memories."

shabby-chic coastal cottage loaded with amenities and close to Maine's best!
"This adorable cottage was full of charm and was vibrantly decorated with unique coastal antiques and finds. There was plenty of space for the whole family to get comfortable, both inside and out... I really enjoyed the small sun porch first thing in the morning. We slept very well on their comfortable mattresses and with Maine's cool August's nights. We put up our own screen house so we were able to enjoy the peaceful pond view at breakfast and dinner time free of mosquitoes (although they weren't that bad without it.) The cottage even had a grill and a large portable fire pit available for outdoor fires. The mud room was perfect place to store all of our beach and hiking gear. There was a shed where we were able to lock up our bikes, as well. The cottage was shocked with the amenities of home that make vacationing in a cottage enjoyable and convenient: dishwasher, linens, towels, iron, small TV, games and more! The washer and dryer were VERY useful, too! They thought of it all!
The location was close to so many sights and activities. We enjoyed taking morning hikes on local nature trails, scenic bike rides and going to Totman Cove right down the street. What a great little secluded beach that was perfect for young children and dogs. In the afternoons we would head to the beautiful Popham Beach, which is free with the Maine State Park pass they provided. The owners provided a wonderful welcome packet and there are guides, brochures and maps at the cottage for those looking for some ideas of where and what to do in the area and beyond.
This area is very special and can create many wonderful family memories. My family has been vacationing on this peninsula every summer since I was a baby. Now, my husband, toddler, dog and I have ventured out to find a cottage that fits our family's needs and wants.... we found it here! We are looking forward to vacationing here for the years to come and making our own wonderful Maine memories!"

"This getaway is absolutely perfect! My husband and I have camped at Hermit Island for the last 22 years, but due to injuries have decided to try something different. Knowing he would miss striper fishing from his kayak and the sound of the waves I went online to find a little peace of heaven with the same feel. I can't recommend this rental enough, although I almost hate to as we would love to stay for several weeks next summer! The cottage has a comfy bed, shower, living room, kitchen , deck and grill. The beach is just steps away with easy trails to find secluded spots to spend an afternoon reading or just listening to the sounds of the ocean. Bill, the caretaker, and his family were so welcoming. His daughter makes and sells beautiful sea glass magnets that are memorable treasures. We can't wait to go back."
