"This was our second year staying at this cottage, and it felt like home the moment we stepped through the front door. We love this place and can't say enough about it! We kid the owners that one day this will be ours, but in the meantime we love "borrowing" it from them! Very clean and well-maintained, you don't have to worry about anything. We had many seals on the rocks in the cove this year - not so many last year - and enjoyed kayaking this year for the first time. The seals would pop their heads up to let you know they were close by. Be sure to visit the Maine Botanical Gardens while you are here -- just a 25 minute drive away."

"Our great experience started right with our initial contact. Kirsten was extremely helpful, very quick to reply and she answered every question completely (and we had a lot of them). Upon arrival we were met by Becky who made sure we had everything we needed. The personal touch was very much appreciated.
The cottage far exceeded our expectations, it was clean, well cared for and very well appointed with all the things you would ever need. The view out of the back either on the boat shaped deck or direct from the living room or kitchen table was breath taking. We could watch the seals frolic on the rocks in the Damariscotta River day or night and this became one of our favorite things to do.
The location for us worked out perfectly it was about 60 miles to Portland and about a 2 1/2 hour drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. There was a lot to do - from exploring the Pemaquid lighthouse to getting the freshest Loster cooked for you so you could bring it home to enjoy at Osiers Co-op (we went twice while we were there) we had great time in Maine and we loved staying at Becky and Kirsten's cottage. We highly recommend staying here if you can get a reservation. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have stayed there and met some very nice people along the way!"

"Atlantic Dreams is a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I stayed there for two weeks at the end of April and beginning of May, to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We could not have found a more excellent vacation cottage. It is right on the ocean, with nothing to block the spectacular view in any way. With all the windows, it is light and bright, and watching the sunrise each morning is amazing. It is the quintessential ocean cottage, and it is designed and decorated just as the perfect ocean cottage should be. Everything that is needed for a great stay is there, but the setting and views are a prime feature. As another person said, it was hard to tear yourself away from the views, even to read the great books we had brought. We watched lobster boats going in and out, we listened to the waves, and saw many sea birds. We even saw ships in the distance. The cottage has DVDs to watch, as well as CDs and a great CD player. There are many books to read, if you forgot to bring your own. Though the cottage is on a wonderful quiet wooded road, it is easy to get to everywhere you might want to go. However, we could always look forward to returning to our beautiful cottage at the end of each day.
Scott was wonderful to work with, and he answered every question or concern. He made recommendations for places to eat and visit, and was easy to reach by phone or email. Our stay was everything we wanted it to be, and even more. We can’t wait to return."

"The Owl's Nest was the perfect place for our family of 8--4 grandparents, 2 children, and 2 grandchildren. The expansive porch was the perfect setting for our morning cup of coffee as we watched the fishermen check their lobster traps and a glass of wine in the evening as we watched the sun set. We fished (our grandson caught a lobster on his fishing line) , played ping pong, made smores by the fireplace, walked to the East Boothbay General Store for doughnuts each morning, and simply soaked in the beauty of our surroundings. It is the quintessential Maine cottage with every amenity needed to have a fun filled week--comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, and a perfect location for easy access into Boothbay."
