Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • Treasured memories

    "This authentic historic home is a perfect place for family and friends to gather. It offers one of the most private cottages on the island! The cottage takes you back in time. The one missing element is a golf cart. Although everything is within walking is cumbersome for lugging supplies, etc."

  • Excellent Location

    "We spent one week here with two young children and it was fantastic. The beach is a quick 5 minute walk, and once there you basically have it to yourself. You can actually hear the waves from the deck at the house. The house was also great, and Jill (owner) was very pleasant and easy to work with. Portland is 7 miles away and has many great restaurants and things to do as well."

  • The Perfect Spot

    "We stayed here in August for a week around a wedding celebration and couldn't have asked for a more ideal house or location. While we live only a short ferry ride away, we felt like we were vacationing in a different world. The house is perfectly located just a 1/2 mile from the ferry in a quiet neighborhood. We didn't bring a car, but just rode bikes back and forth to the "downtown". Our 9 and 12 year old boys loved heading out on biking adventures by themselves which we felt comfortable with, given the slow island traffic. The house itself is a truly charming historic cottage with built-ins and lovely pine floors. It was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all manner of utensils & pans. We spent a lot of time playing games on the wrap around deck with great ocean views. We arrived at the house in the dark and the next morning, upon seeing the sparkling light-filled interior and porch, our nine year old announced "I love this house". The boys found a rope swing near the ferry which they loved and we spent time running an biking around the island, building cairns on the nearby beach, and dining at the Peaks Island Inn. The owners could not have been more accommodating from the welcoming note and bubbles for the kids, to a very organized notebook of each appliance in the house and local attractions. We'll be back, thank you so much!"

  • Amazing, peaceful retreat!!

    "If you are looking for peace and quiet, privacy, an adorable cottage and unbelievable views, "Cozy" is for you! The cottage had everything we needed and was super-clean. The location was amazing!! It is centrally located in Harpswell with easy access to all the lovely hikes and beautiful harbors located in this town. Even though the property is technically shared, it really feels like 2 different properties. The awesome shared dock was located between both houses and easy to access. The family that rented the other cottage was very nice and so quiet that we hardly knew they were there! We watched 2 Osprey fish every evening (1 caught a fish not 15' from the water's edge in front of Cozy's deck) and they were joined by an eagle on our last day there! We were even treated to "phosphorescence" one night down on the dock - truly magical! This was an absolutely perfect vacation - we couldn't have been happier!!"
