  • Every comfort!

    "Staying at Portside within the Backbay Cottage condominium affords remarkable comfort. The kitchen and bedrooms were thoughtfully laid out, with relaxing seating, full size appliances, spacious bathrooms and even plenty of storage space. On the deck, there are tables, and lounge chairs for guest to perch and view the activity in the harbor. This is tasteful and inviting accommodation that we would highly recommend."

  • Fantastic location and friendly, responsive owner

    "Months before I arrived at the cottage, I was really pleased with how responsive Ken was to all my emails and questions. He gladly sent additional photos to me and always responded very quickly to emails. There are two cottages that are identical, but they are far away enough from each other that they're still very private. I'm really picky about this and I was very happy with how secluded the cottage felt! I really enjoyed how surrounded by trees and high above the pond the cottage was — it made me feel like I was up in a treehouse. You can enjoy the glimmering lake while sitting on the deck and never be too hot because there's always a great breeze and abundant shade. The property is beautiful and the pond is perfect for swimming. It was also very quiet with hardly any motor boats when we were there. It was great that a two person kayak and canoe were included, since bringing your own down to the dock would be very difficult. The cottage is in a very private and quiet location (dead end gravel fire road) but still within ten minutes of markets and main roads. The location is phenomenal because of its proximity to the ocean and lots of great restaurants and places to explore. Some recommendations: Savage Oakes Winery - great blueberry wines! Sweetgrass Winery + Distillery - great selection of fruit wines (peach, blueberry, and rhubarb port wines) and incredible view. Great area to drive around and photograph. Rising Tide Co-Op - great for people who like organic and vegan options (they also have awesome freshly baked muffins!) Anchor Inn Restaurant - great grilled seafood and ocean view, plus it's only 15 minutes from the cottage! Primo Restaurant - Worth the drive and it might be the best meal you've ever had. It's definitely a special occasion restaurant because it's not cheap, but it's the ultimate farm to table dining experience there is. They won James Beard Award for best restaurant in New England... can't beat that! Thank you Ken and Becca for sharing your cottage with us!"

  • You won't find a better vacation spot than this!

    "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."

  • Peaceful place

    "We had a wonderful time staying here. The condo is perfect for 2 people and has everything you need in it. The view is spectacular and it was very quiet. April is great to deal with and helped make us feel at home. We definitely plan on returning."

Mid-Coast & Islands Travel Tips

Maine Rentals for Picturesque Convenience

If you are looking for a vacation destination that is charming and rustic, consider booking one of the many Maine rentals. This small but robust state has a wealth of attractions to offer. For a short stay in Maine, consider one of the cozy Maine cottages. If you are planning to stay longer, other Maine lodging options may be better choices.

Maine Rentals Are Full of Amenities

The rugged coastline of Maine, dotted with picturesque lighthouses, will provide you with a vacation like no other. To truly make the most of your time here, it is important to make sure that you have selected the best Maine lodging. While you could certainly rent a hotel room, Maine rentals such as vacation homes and Maine cottages provide so many additional benefits. After spending a long day exploring the coastline, checking out the quaint shops and treating yourself to Maine lobster, it will be nice to be able to return back to a comfortable vacation rental. Most of the rental homes in the state provide amenities that you will not find in hotel rooms, such as full kitchens, spacious living areas, fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs.

Maine Cottages Offer So Much to Do nearby

During your time in Maine, you may wish to take one of the historical tours offered in many of the towns throughout the state. This is a great way to learn more about the local area. Another option to consider is getting in some time fishing or boating, both of which are quite popular throughout the state. Your Maine rentals will be conveniently located for you to enjoy all of these activities.

Maine Lodging in the Fall

If you plan your trip to Maine during the fall, there is simply nothing better than taking a scenic drive through the byways and enjoying the glorious fall foliage. After returning to one of the Maine cottages you have rented, build a roaring fire and snuggle under a cozy blanket. Bookings for Maine lodging can be easily made online, allowing you many cottages or larger vacation homes to choose from for your upcoming trip.
