"This property has everything one could ask for......a great dock which includes a lg. canoe, 2 man sea kayak, great access to water, beautiful views & sunsets. In addition to beautiful landscaping, the home afforded plenty of room w/ a wonderful deck and screened in porch. The high end kitchen allows one to cook like a gourmet and has every appliance and equipment you would want. As for wheelchair access, there is a long wooden ramp attached to the back deck which makes for easy access to the home and once in the home, there is easy mobility throughout the interior. The surrounding area is great and the town of Brunswick has much to offer. We recommend this property unconditionally."

"We tend to seek out low-key, non-touristy destinations when we venture away from our bustling DC-area, and Osprey's Nest in Cundy's Harbor more than met our goals. While it's an easy drive to places like Portland and Boothbay Harbor if you feel more action beckoning, Cundy's Harbor is meant for the meandering stroll or kayak outing and the deck at the Osprey's Nest is the perfect perch for watching the tide's ebb and flow, enjoying sunrises or sunsets, or just losing yourself in a good book. The only sounds heard during our week were that of gulls, lobster boats, and the gentle lapping of the water. We walked a block down a dirt path to pick lobsters from the local boat's afternoon arrival, then strolled back to our cottage to steam them in the lobster pot provided. YUM! It doesn't get much better or more affordable! We strolled about a mile to the small, well-stocked village library, with its bright cheerful interior and beautiful backyard water view. We listened to locals sharing stories in Watson's General Store (run by the same family since 1856!) and received very helpful advice on off-the-beaten-path places to explore.
We shared homemade treats with a delightful family renting the cottage next door and there was no one in the unit below us until the owners - also delightful - arrived at the end of the week. We lucked out with good weather and no loud music or voices nearby. We loved visiting Bailey Island and Harpswell, again, just poking into nooks and crannies and chatting with locals. Amazing geological formations along the Giant's Stairs path and at the end of the island at Land's End. A truly lovely, welcoming way of life found on our jaunts! Be sure to try the lobster salad at Morse's Cribstone Grill at the bridge on Bailey Island and morning munchies at the Schoolhouse Cafe! Both were hits. And don't overlook the wonderful grounds of Bowdoin College campus in nearby Brunswick...the campus itself is gorgeous, but the live theater, museum on Admiral Peary's arctic exploration and one on Civil War General Joshua Chamberlain (former president of the college) were also treats."

"I have enjoyed this home many times with my family over the past years. It is a lovely, cozy waterfront cottage that just lends itself to total relaxation. We have created incredible meals in the kitchen, relaxed on the screened porch, played lawn games for hours and embraced the view as the ferries pass by. We were able to easily spend time in Portland and on other islands. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. It is simply magical and as always we will look forward to returning each year!"
