  • Quiet getaway for two

    "If you're looking for the real Maine, the Maine that's not the T-shirt-and-trickets tourist atmosphere of Camden, Boothbay, and Bar Harbor, the Maine of friendly people, fresh-off-the-boat seafood, bracing hikes, gorgeous scenery, quiet waterfront mornings and evenings, go to Harpswell. And if you are two, stay in this cozy cottage on Quahog Cove off Harpswell Island Road. Within driving distance to all the ordinary sites -- we had lattes in Camden, bought art in Brunswick, visited the Wyeth collection in Rockland, toured Boothbay's old neighborhoods -- "Cozy" is perfect for an intimate week for two. The cottage is well appointed: the bed is comfortable, the little porch is perfect for a 5:00 wine (or two), the bathroom is more than we expected for so small a cottage, the dock is inviting, and sunrise over the cove was worth the price in itself. Even in mid-October, the cottage was toasty and comfy. Additional and unexpected: a French press coffee maker, a huge closet, a huge shower, a fully furnished kitchen, and lobstermen who work their traps practically in your front yard every morning. And John and Karen had fresh flowers awaiting us. The cottage was spotless and well maintained. After two days, it felt like home. A delightful week away."

  • We all wish we were still there!!

    "We had a small family reunion, of sorts, with 3 families coming from all different parts of the U.S. What a wonderful surprise, when we pulled up to the house. It’s just as beautiful as the pictures. And they have done sooo many updates, to make the home clean, cozy and bright inside. This truly is a beautiful 2-story. The home is immaculate. The beds and bedding are so comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed so that you don’t need to bring anything but food. I actually brought wine glasses, just in case, there were none. Oh, I promise you, anything and everything you’d ever want to prepare a meal, and set up a table is there for your use. So appreciated that. And you can see the ocean from the dining table, the couch and the windows upstairs. Wish I could post pictures. It’s truly heaven. Crescent Beach is just a short walk down the street, and what a wonderful beach it is. You will find people walking and jogging every day. The Good Table Restaurant, just down the main street, was delish. A must do! We want to buy the house…..that’s how much we loved it. I think that pretty much sums it up. You won’t be disappointed. Much thanks to the Doucette’s for making this a worry free trip. They are wonderful!"

  • Beth and Mike from Pittsburgh

    "The cottage was charming and the pictures don't do it justice. It has been beautifully remodeled, and decorated. The location is fabulous! Just a short walk to Higgins Beach. I've made many trips to the Portland area over the last 40 years and this may be my new favorite place. So much to see and do nearby....we went to an adorable lobster shack on Blackpoint road and ordered steamed lobsters to go! We would definately return to the cottage!"
