Recent Tenants Harbor reviews

  • 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!"

  • Perfect Maine Getaway

    "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"

  • wonderful place but not handicap accessible

    "We recently spent a week in this most-beautiful home and setting. With one strong exception - see below - the house was as advertised and more. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want, including coffee grinders, juicers, and even a bread maker. The house itself was large enough to acomodate the eight we had, and the fenced-in yard was perfect for dogs. There was a good gate at the top of the stairs to prevent the toddler and dogs from going down. We felt totally comfortable and welcome and would highly recommend it. However, this is not a house for the mobility impaired, and is most definitely not wheelchair accessible. The first problem is a moderately sloped walkway from parking area to house, which was covered with shells. The path is beautiful but very treacherous and exhausting for the person on a walker; she wound up leaving the house only once the week we were there. In addition the master bedroom and bath were big and modern but the bathroom had no grab bars, making toileting and showering difficult and hazardous. A suggestion to the owners: put a door outside the second bedroom. Since the only way to ensure privacy in that bedroom is to close the door at the kitchen, this effectively removed the bathroom from general use. Two people used that bathroom, and everyone else went to the basement."

  • All the comforts of home!

    "We had a wonderful time. This was our first visit to Maine and we will definitely be back. The cottage is in a great location. Port Clyde is a quaint little town with the best waterfront lobster we have ever had at the "Dip Net". Debra and Phil are very friendly and had everything that you might possibly need in the cottage, right down to a fresh vase of wildflowers on the table."
