  • 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!"

  • Wonderful, private home!

    "We stayed a week this past Sept with 3 couples and absolutely loved our stay. The pictures on this website do not do justice to how wonderful this house is. The bedrooms are good size with comfortable beds. My only complaint would be the small upper windows have no coverings so the morning sun comes in bright and early. The kitchen I large and has everything you could need and then some. There were tons of spices and other wonderful things in the pantry. We did not cook lobster there but if you did want to do so there is everything you would need. We loved the large great room and really enjoyed the fireplace. If I were to change anything it would be to put a bigger TV in. We did take advantage of the large movie selection they had. There were also lots of games. We love sitting on the deck and looking out at the bay and looking at the beautiful night sky. This home is a bit off the beaten path making for wonderful peace and quiet yet only about 15-20 minutes from the darling town of Camden. There are stores a short drive away but you do need a car if you are staying here. The property manager Janey was a delight to work with quickly responding to every call or email I sent. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Maine I would love to stay here again."

  • 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."

  • Quiet location on the edge of town, close to everything....

    "The apt. at Arbor House was light filled, comfortable, well furnished, spacious and very tidy. We were right at home with the funky and eclectic decor where books and art abound. The bed was extremely comfortable. Location is ideal to downtown Rockland; leave the car in the driveway and walk to museums, galleries, great restaurants and cafes, theater and more. Owls Head, Camden, Thomaston, Rockport and other towns are easily accessible by car. This was our first trek to this area of Maine and we'll be back for sure. The hosts at Arbor House are friendly and available, but never intrusive. The garden was amazing, even in Sept."
