Perfect Maine Retreat
"Three of us stayed in this idyllic Brunswick cottage in August. The location couldn't be better, at the end of a little-traveled road and right on the water. We were close to Brunswick, Freeport and Portland and all they have to offer and yet, it was so completely peaceful that we heard only the tidal water and the birds. The cottage is very comfortable and attractive, and though the kitchen is small, we were able to make most of our dinners at home and enjoy them while watching the sun go down. The hosts are beyond nice, though very careful about the tenants' privacy. I'd very much like to return."

Beautiful views.A great way to relax and enjoy family .
"The Schooner Cottage is beautiful and the views outstanding .We awoke every morning to a beautiful view of Casco bay . John and Karen were absolutely wonderful hosts and did everything possible to make our stay a memorable one. The Cottage is close to all the good restaurants i.e. Estees, Dolphin, Erica's, Joshua's and the list goes on. Erica's was selling steamed lobster for $5.75 a pound .Life just does not get much better. Brunswick is a ten minute ride and is a very charming town. Be sure to try Richard's one night for German fare. Harpswell is a beautiful area and the Maine people could not have been more hospitable. Thank you John and Karen for a wonderful vacation .All of us enjoyed Schooner Cottage and Harpswell .Our three year old granddaughter wants to know why we cannot have lobster for lunch everyday .I am sure you will be hearing from us when planning future vacations.....Art and Babs"

"My family and I recently visited this gorgeous home for a long weekend in September for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is beautiful, the views are breathtaking, and the private location lends itself to a peaceful retreat and getaway. The property has its own beach that is gorgeous and is great for wading and exploring at low tide. This was our first experience on Homeaway and the experience was wonderful. The homeowner was a delight to work with and I look forward to rebooking this home for another visit very soon."

"Highlight was the beautiful view from the deck on which we enjoyed many meals from local seafood. This is a special location.
All facilities, furnishings, conveniences and other needs were thoughtfully provided for. We found the unit, towels and linens in very clean condition.
We enjoyed the art created by Chris’ mother, Jean. The area is quiet and enjoyable. People are very friendly and hospitable.
We rented a canoe for the week and went out onto the bay twice per day. A heard of grey seals welcomed us on one sunny afternoon from the shore of a local island; elusive harbor seals dived into the water and peaked at us from the water as we passed.
We enjoyed swimming in the adjacent waters and gathered mussels and steamer clams.
On our first day, July 4th, we were treated to a most elaborate fireworks display viewed overhead from lounge chairs on the deck. You probably should not expect this."
