"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"

"My family of 9 had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the Farmhouse for a week in June. This was not enough time to stay at this absolute gem of a place. The Saltwater Farmhouse as some family members said is like stepping into a "fairy tale". Upon arrival there was fresh fruit and flowers on the table. This was such a nice surprise. The house has more character then you can imagine or even to put in words. The rooms and Beds are comfy. The kitchen is great for cooking. The front room is well lit and perfect for visiting with family and for reading a book. The yard is magical. Chasing fireflies was a family favorite. The pAtio is perfect for grilling and watching the sunrise and sunset. The outdoor shower is a great addition. The location of saltwater is ideal for families who want to be close to the bigger cities but who don't mind driving a little bit through beautiful farm land and coastal scenery to get there. The house is located a bit of a drive off the main highway but it is a drive that I miss everyday since leaving there. This made the house even more special. The small towns and general stores close to the house became favorites of ours. It was a highlight to visit The Port Clyde General Store Each Day. The house will forever have a special place in our hearts and we plan to return more often then we ever thought we would. The Lang Family are perfect to work with. They were very attentive and responded quickly to all of my questions. Even though I have never met them, they feel somewhat like family. I can't thank them enough for sharing their wonderful place."

"We recently spent a week at the Osprey cottage and it was exactly what we had hoped for. Beautiful and relaxing setting, nicely maintained cottage, clean, comfortable furniture, close to lots of activities for kids and adults and downtown Boothbay Harbor. Bill and Lisa were helpful and responsive, and the neighbors in the community were friendly and welcoming. Absolutely no complaints."

"We didn't even need to go into town; just sitting on the deck enjoying the gorgeous view was so relaxing. Watching the lobsterman at work was fun to see through the house's binoculars. We did adventure in to rent kayaks and go hiking, and we were pleased that the restaurants in Rockland were plentiful and delicious.
The kids loved making puzzles, playing the games in the house and exploring on the private beach, a rare opportunity on Maine. The Internet was strong, and we were able to stream movies at night.
One really unique feature was walking to the Olson House, the scene of Andrew Wyeth's famous painting, Christina's World. On a rainy day, we visited The Farnsworth Museum in Rockland to learn more about the Wyeth's and other Maine artists.
I would highly recommend this lovely place for extended families to enjoy. The private apartment over the garage is a huge plus for large families.
We will come back!"
