"Beautiful! This house provides a place to find serenity and contentment; to de-stress and relax. One week is not long enough. The owners represent the best in hospitality. The attention to detail in the house is amazing. Can't think of what we needed that wasn't provided even when the owner had to make a special trip to get it. The beds are comfortable, views are spectacular, location is convenient to Port Clyde General Store and 2 restaurants. Rent a kayak and cruise the coastline. Sit on the deck and watch the ducks, eagles, hummingbird, and herons. Smell the salt air mixed liberally with the beautiful roses. Can't wait to come back."

"Our stay at Cousins Cove was absolutely fantastic. We were a large group, many families coming together to spend a week in Port Clyde. The house was spotless upon arrival, with plenty of linens and towels provided. There are essentially 3 wings of the house, allowing for a large group to have the best of both worlds, privacy in the sleeping areas and large accommodating common space for gathering. My family stayed upstairs, my husband and I in the master, my 2 children in the 2 twin bedroom and we shared a full bath. Our bedroom, spacious and bathed in soothing beach colors, provided lots of closet space and drawers for our belongings. But nothing compares to waking up each morning to THAT VIEW! Every corner of this house offers views onto the most breathtaking vista, the tidal water, the rocks, the expanse of sea. The quality of the light in this part of the world is something not to be missed.
Our family had plenty of room to gather around the dining table for grand meals and epic games. The house is furnished, in my opinion, perfectly. Comfortable and inviting, not fussy at all. The living room is a wonderful gathering place, decorated with a nod to the nautical.
My absolute favorite time of the day was sunset. Cocktails on the back porch, overlooking the kids running wild in the yard, with the shifting sun light over the water. The screened porch served as a perfect location for our lobster dinners at night and for coffee in the morning.
The owners, Mark and Alice, could not have been more accommodating hosts. Making valuable recommendations for places to go and things to see! They even invited to take us out on their sail boat for what turned out to be, one of the highlights of the trip. Seeing Maine from the water was such a treat!
I cannot recommend this property enough. We have rented many houses over the years, and this remains one of the best and one we will surely be returning to."

"The Port Clyde house is great. It was a reasonable size and layout for two people and our somewhat mobility challenged dogs. The view from the living room was amazing... We could have sat and ocean/boat/wildlife/people watched for the entire week and been thrilled... But there are some nifty sites so close by that even our older pup got to sightsee.
The house is comfortable, cheery and bright. There is cable and internet, but honestly, if you are watching television instead of looking out that window, you are so missing out. Herons, cormorants, osprey, eider ducks with fifty billion ducklings, eagles, woodcocks, and a white tailed deer all made an appearance in the yard in the week we visited. Just a fantastic location and a wonderfully homey place. Would recommend this place highly (just save us a spot!)
Laundry on site was also a wonderful amenity, as coastal Maine in early June means bringing days worth of both summer and winter clothes and still finding you didn't quite bring enough of the right type of either.
Awesome place, awesome owners."

"My family and I really enjoyed the cottage. My kids especially loved that the beach was within walking distance so they could go every day when it was low tide. I would definitely recommend this cottage to any family looking for a quiet, restful beach vacation. We were able to mark "Eating lobster in Maine" off my mom's bucket list! We enjoyed eating at the Black Harpoon, The Happy Clam, Harjula's icecream and the School House Bakery. We bought live lobster from Miller's and they were deee-licious! :) Jeanine was very nice and helpful and worked with us so we could bring my parents' two yorkies with us also."
