Recent Harpswell (N,S,E&W) reviews

  • 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."

  • This was our first time in Maine

    "The Ocean House is right on the water with great views. It is on an a very quite road with a lot nature in the area. The kids loved the open space around the house and going to the tide pools at low tide. We enjoyed the fire place each night and the fire pit by the water. The wrap around porch was great. The location was convenient to a lot of places to see in that area of Maine, 20 to 30 minutes to a lot of sights. Thank you Doug!"

  • Can't wait to come back!

    "Our family of six had a fabulous time at this lovely cottage. The location of the cottage was private and the views were spectacular. The house is sturdy and spacious. We could not have asked for more. The fellas hit golf balls into the bay at low tide and the rest of us had a blast looking for them before the water came in. We made day excursions to Georgetown Pottery and Popham Beach and fort (so special!) -- but mostly we loved to sit on the porch or in the comfortable adirondack chairs on the grass, and talk and laugh. We liked Frank enormously -- he was available to answer questions anytime but never hovered. We recommend this cottage without reservation -- you can't find a nicer place in Maine. I am going to hear the waves lapping in the shore of my dreams all year."

  • Very homey

    "We usually go south for our yearly vacation. This year we decided to head north and had the best vacation ever!! This home was perfect from being on the water to being close to all kinds of sites. This place is perfect for families or several couples. We will definitely be back."
