"After visiting Maine many years ago, we wanted to rent a house on the coast and stay a bit longer this time. This house was perfect......secluded on over 3 acres, yet only 10 min. from Tenant's Harbor and 15 min. to Port Clyde. The sound of the ocean waves lapping the rocks on shore was what I fell asleep to every night and awoke to every morning. This house was perfect for just the two of us, but would probably be fine for a small family, too. The pictures show exactly what the house looks like. Morning sunrises were beautiful on the deck. Rockland is the nearest "big town" with some nice restaurants and shops, but about a 20 min. drive away. We chose to dine locally in Tenant's harbor and Port Clyde and bought fish (at Jesse's Market in Rockland) to cook on our own. The added bonus for us was the clay tennis court a very short distance away. It was like our own private tennis court, which we used every morning!"

"This was our second year to spend a week in September at the Carousel. We will definitely want to return again and again. The house is beautifully located on a bluff overlooking the ocean with a deck that offers gorgeous views of the sunrise, the ocean with working lobster boats and, of course, the sound of surf pounding below. One special feature that we loved was the way the sun warms the deck in the morning so that even on chilly September morings it was comfortable to sit outside and enjoy coffee with the view. Inside, the house is well equipped for cooking and relaxing. We loved the comfortable living room with its many windows, making it possible to enjoy the view even on rainy or stormy days. There are two bedrooms downstairs, each with its own bathroom (beautifully rennovated) and a bed upstairs in the loft. The only problem I could find with the house is that a couple sleeping upstairs cannot access a bathroom without going through one of the downstairs bedrooms. If children are sleeping in the loft ths might be ok, but not for, say, a third couple. Otherwise, I would say the house is perfect. If you prefer to do something other than sit on the deck, there are lovely places to visit nearby - for example, the Marshall Point Lighthouse, the little village of Port Clyde, Drift-in Beach, the Lobster Lane Used Bookstore (unfortunately only open on weekends) and Monhegan Island which has a nice boat ride to get there and some wonderful hiking. The house and its surroundings are all a very special experience!"

"My husband and I rented the cottage for a long weekend and to celebrate his birthday. I loved being able to walk to the General Store, harbor, Schoolhouse Bakery, and East Wind Inn. We enjoyed the front porch very much, watching the lobster boats come and go. Remodeled bathroom was great, also the bed was very comfortable. You can hear the ocean from the bedroom! The kitchen had everything we needed and we did a bit of cooking while we were there. The cottage was clean and I really liked the seaside decor. We are hoping to come back in the Spring. Thanks to Deb and Linda for sharing their great location with us and making our trip so easy."

"My husband, 9 year old and I stayed at Long Cove Cottages for about 2 weeks and it was the highlight of the summer. The proprietors are there when you need them. The cottages were clean, cute and had everything we needed to cook like we were at home. Of course there are excellent local restaurants. Probably our favorite was the Happy Clam just down the road. All of the photos and description of the cottages and area are accurate. There is no end to options of things to do and that are entertaining for all ages. Prepare for a chill if you plan on taking a dip in the ocean, but there are warmer lakes nearby. We spent most of our time relaxing in the cabin - sitting on the deck watching the weather come in and the lobster boats come and go out of the cove. The only negative was having to leave at the end of our stay."
