  • 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."

  • Celebrating our 25th Anniversary!

    "My husband and I came to Maine for our 25th Anniversary. We stayed in Boothbay Harbor for 1 night and did the whale watching which was great but the real treat was staying here at Osprey's Nest! The view is out of a movie. It is so great to see the lobster boats and sail boats coming in and out of the harbor. One morning we even got to see the Bald Eagle sailing above us! There are so many sites to see in this area. Go to Giant's Stairs at Bailey's Island and eat at the Giant's Stairs dinner. Great fish sandwich with home made onion rings! Dolphin Marina and Restaurant is a great place for a nice dinner with an amazing sunset! Lobster stew is really good too. And also buy your lobster right here at Watson's to make a great dinner at this amazing place that we cant wait to come back too! If you're second guessing where to stay? This is your place!"

  • Magical Family Escape

    "An absolutely perfect vacation destination! Our family rented this home in 2014 as a place to getaway and relax. We woke up every morning to a beautiful sunrise over the water and a new kayak adventure awaiting. With numerous islands and inlets to explore by boat or kayak, our nautical thirst was quenched while our hunger was fulfilled with a quick boat ride or kayak trip to the docks for fresh lobster. Days finished off with a serene sunset and a fire in the fireplace. And, at some point in every day, we took advantage of the outdoor shower where we enjoyed hot water, hot coffee and Baileys and an unforgettable view of the bay. All of our children (2, 9, 12) still talk about the exploring, puzzle doing, climbing in the tree house, and, of course, the gorgeous water. We all are looking forward to returning to this magical place for many more years to come."

  • 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 distance...it is cumbersome for lugging supplies, etc."
