  • 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."

  • Perfect Setting to Relax/Renew/Retreat

    "As a single mom, I knew I needed to get away for a weekend while I had the chance. Linda could not have been more responsive via initial email communications nor more accommodating. She quickly responded to each and every question I had. The property is clean and cared for and situated in the most lovely of locations. I spent most of my time just gazing at boats passing by, or at mama ducks teaching their babies to swim in a line. My dog and I took a trip to a nearby pet friendly beach, upon Linda's suggestion, and it too was idyllic and just perfect. Linda makes sure that everything you could possibly need is on hand, including cozy electric blankets for chilly evenings, car passes/decals to park at local beaches/state parks, and even a binder filled with answers to every question you didn't even know you had about the property and the area. I can't wait until my babysitter again offers to take my kids for a whole weekend so I can return!"

  • Wonderful views and very comfortable house with excellent cook's kitchen

    "We spent a lovely week at the carousel cottage -- loving the view, the sound of the waves on the rocks below and enjoying cooking in the newly remodeled kitchen. We highly recommend the house to families, or two couples. You won't want to leave once you get there!"

  • Beyond Our Expectations

    "I have always wanted to share the beauty and magic of my birth state with my friends from afar. We searched long and hard for the most idllic accommodations and decided on this island get away with 3 other families. Every expectation was exceeded. Gigi and Matt were the most gracious hosts. Adventures included clam digging, harvesting mussels, lobster bake on the rocks, scenic boat excursions & fairy house construction along an enchanted moss covered trail. Gigi had exceptional patience with the children who wanted to help her in the kitchen at every moment. They published the daily menu, set the table, baked cookies and made pizza together. The food she prepared for us was delicious & healthy. We highly recommend this vacation destination. It was an amazing week."
