"We were a three-generational family group (5 adults and a baby), and this house was perfect for our week on the coast. Located on a quiet dead-end road with views of the bay and out to sea, it is only a few minutes' drive to Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde, and close to Owls Head, Thomaston, and Rockland. The house was in excellent condition -- the rooms were comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped for serious cooking, and the deck and upstairs balcony lovely spots for relaxing. Tim was very accommodating and responsive, and we didn't have any problems at all during our blissful stay. Definitely look forward to returning!"

"Our stay at Cousins Cove was absolutely fantastic. We were a large group, many families coming together to spend a week in Port Clyde. The house was spotless upon arrival, with plenty of linens and towels provided. There are essentially 3 wings of the house, allowing for a large group to have the best of both worlds, privacy in the sleeping areas and large accommodating common space for gathering. My family stayed upstairs, my husband and I in the master, my 2 children in the 2 twin bedroom and we shared a full bath. Our bedroom, spacious and bathed in soothing beach colors, provided lots of closet space and drawers for our belongings. But nothing compares to waking up each morning to THAT VIEW! Every corner of this house offers views onto the most breathtaking vista, the tidal water, the rocks, the expanse of sea. The quality of the light in this part of the world is something not to be missed.
Our family had plenty of room to gather around the dining table for grand meals and epic games. The house is furnished, in my opinion, perfectly. Comfortable and inviting, not fussy at all. The living room is a wonderful gathering place, decorated with a nod to the nautical.
My absolute favorite time of the day was sunset. Cocktails on the back porch, overlooking the kids running wild in the yard, with the shifting sun light over the water. The screened porch served as a perfect location for our lobster dinners at night and for coffee in the morning.
The owners, Mark and Alice, could not have been more accommodating hosts. Making valuable recommendations for places to go and things to see! They even invited to take us out on their sail boat for what turned out to be, one of the highlights of the trip. Seeing Maine from the water was such a treat!
I cannot recommend this property enough. We have rented many houses over the years, and this remains one of the best and one we will surely be returning to."

"We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Buttercup cottage! Clean, comfortable and roomy with an outdoor deck overlooking beautiful Linekin Bay. Plenty of linens, kitchen utensils, pans etc made our stay quite comfortable. We picked up lobsters/steamers from the local fish pier on two nights and had everything we needed to cook them at the cottage and enjoyed our feast while sitting on the deck! The bed was quite comfortable. Although there is no A/C, we enjoyed the cool breezes off the bay in the evening. There are two fans available if you should need them. We brought our kayak and were able to bring it across the street to Barrett's Park and kayak all around the bay. The cottage is within walking distance to town, maybe a 10-15 walk. The owners couldn't be nicer and were happy to point out all the great local places to visit. Their recommendations for dining were spot on! We had a wonderful week exploring Boothbay Harbor, New Harbor, a day at Monhegan Island, kayaking to Burnt Island light house, Maine's Botanical Garden and the many hiking preserves with well marked trails nearby. Don't forget to go to Wiscasset and lunch at Red's Eats. An awesome lobster roll experience!! The lines start early, be prepared. Buttercup had all the comforts of home. The eclectic decor was fascinating and tastefully thought out and displayed. Each day, I'd notice something that hadn't caught my eye previously. We would highly recommend a stay at Buttercup. We look forward to a return visit in the future. There's still much more exploring of Maine's mid coast to do."
