"We have been staying at various waterfront cottages along coastal Maine for the last 20 some years. This one was the cleanest and most well equipped. It was a nice touch to see a variety Maine artwork on the walls. There is plenty to do in the area… The Farnsworth and Transportation Museums, great restaurants, interesting shops and galleries. Plus we were in the middle of Wyeth country. The best part was coming back at the end of the day to this gem at the end of a secluded road."

"Everything the other reviews say about Aquahela cottage is true. The house and beach are exactly as pictured in the photos. The location is stunningly beautiful and very private. The house is comfortable, clean and delightfully idiosyncratic, clearly built and decorated with love, not a sterile rental property.
There are lots of things to see in the area, though the place is so beautiful we spent many days lounging on the deck or lying in the grass next to the ocean. We visited the Pemaquid Lighthouse, kayaked in the Pemaquid harbor, checked out the old fort there, and found a hidden gem, the Verna nature preserve, where a trail through sweet-smelling woods leads to a true ocean coast, with huge rocks and crashing waves. There are many great seafood places, but if you want a change of pace (and you're up for an hour's drive and a splurge--not cheap) dinner at Tau Yuan in Brunswick is a unique experience. The food is superb, and unlike any Chinese food we've ever had in either San Francisco or New York City.
Laura was a pleasure to interact with. She is efficient, straightforward and gracious (she sent us a thank-you card with the return of our deposit!).
My partner and I stumbled on the cottage at the last minute, and still can't believe our luck--it was booked solid but someone had cancelled their reservation. We're planning to reserve a week next summer now!"

"This lovely cottage boasts of beautiful views of the cove. As soon as we (5 adult siblings) arrived, we quickly felt at home. The layout worked perfect for our family with a split floor plan. Pam had all the amenities one would need for a vacation. Daily we took a walk down to the water to watch the sunset. The location is perfect, close to Pemaquid Lighthouse, restaurants, kayaking, as well as town for shopping, etc. Hope to be back."
