  • Maine: The way we thought it should be

    "Lofty, overlooking Quahog Bay (Harpswell, Maine) was a new experience that we were looking forward. We were not disappointed . . . how could you be. Lofty’s setting is authentic, coastal Maine -- tall trees, slowly rising and falling tidal waters 30 feet below, the distant sound of an early morning work boat chugging up the bay, incredible sunrises rises that made us rise early to prepare for the sun’s next performance, and an occasional loon calling from the far shoreline. The cottage was perfectly designed to take full advantage of an unspoiled scene provided by nature. Large windows in the eat-in kitchen and living room area with an adjoining expansive deck invite keeping track of outdoor activities – boats and birds and slowly moving ripples on the often placid water. Another smaller, more private deck opens off of the master bedroom. Lofty’s convenient location is about a 10 minute drive from Cooks Corner’s shopping, gas, restaurants, and highway connectivity to Brunswick, Bath, Freeport, Rockland, and beyond. Do you want to get out into nature? Great sites are a short drive away along with cultural destinations, such as the Maine Maritime Museum and museum and gallery on the Bowdoin College campus. Eateries, if you don’t feel like cooking in Lofty’s well equipped kitchen, are wide-ranging in their offerings and price in Bath and Brunswick and only 15-20 minutes away. For a real treat there’s Cook’s on Bailey’s Island. A bright, clean, comfortable, tastefully furnished home with responsive owners who obviously want guests to make the most of their time at Lofty and in Maine. Thanks John and Karen. We hope to return."

  • Felt like home away from home

    "The pictures do no justice in how awesome this cottage is. The cottage felt like home. The dock is just steps away from the cottage. We hanged out on the dock on our first night and almost every night. The moon was bright and had a cool breeze. We could just camp on that dock :) The cottage is very clean and comfortable. It has a nice full kitchen. Everything is close by grocery stores, breweries, restaurants and hiking trails. If you like shopping, the outlet mall and LL Bean are just a short drive. South Freeport road is a nice road to run/bike. There are barely any cars on the road and we saw plenty of people running and biking. Stephanie and John are wonderful hosts. They gave us good recommendations on restaurants and hiking trails. Even though they were just a few steps away, we felt that we had our privacy. If you need them they’re there but if not they just leave you be. Our trip to Freeport wouldn't have been this fun and relaxing if we have stayed somewhere else. I definitely recommend staying at their cottage."

  • Perfection!

    "We love this little corner of South Portland. Just a short walk from the beach, this immaculate apartment meets all our needs. Minutes from the city and the beaches, great bike rides, super restaurants and Fort William. We are already booked for our next visit."
