Overview

About the property

Ramp access,1st fl MBR/Bath, 2 BRs/Bath upstairs, panoramic views, pool table

With a deep water dock, a boat mooring, a view from every room, and it's close proximity to town, it's a highly sought after location. Enjoy sun up to sunset from the screen porch, living room and dining room. Or hang out on the deck overlooking the dock and watch the boats going back and forth to the marina while you get the grill going and catch the last rays of the sun. Folks come back year after year, some for as many as seventeen. Although I've been caring for it for the past ten years, this is my first year managing the rentals for my brother which is why you won't see it reviewed. Email rather than Request to Book for best response.

Assessable by ramp, the first floor LR has ample seating with HDTV/cable/DVD and a stereo, a DR table seating 8-10, a first floor master with a king, a full bath, a fully outfitted kitchen with intimate bistro table for two, and laundry room. Second floor has a full bath, a bedroom with a queen and another with two twins. Lower level game room has a pool table, ping pong table, poker table, and dart board. Also included are WiFi, gas and charcoal grills, lobster cooker, and sheets and towels. parking for four cars.

This is the perfect place to explore by kayak or paddle board all the nooks and crannies of this protected and beautiful harbor. Rentals are available close by. For sailors this is one of the go-to spots on the east coast for the reliable southern breezes and protected harbor. On Sunday in July and August the Quahog Bay Sailing Club races start around one which can be viewed from the ledges just a few steps from the house. For power boaters there is plenty to see and room to ski.

This peaceful, private, and spectacular location is a surprisingly convenient 6 miles to the charming town of Brunswick, Maine which boasts a tremendous variety of restaurants and shops and is home to Maine State Music Theatre at Bowdoin College. Acadia National Park is just a three hour drive away but it will take you longer because of all the interesting and beautiful places to see along the way. The very cool city of Portland is less than an hour south with the shopping outlet mecca of Freeport and home of LLBean along the way. Reid State Park and Popham Beach boast two of the most unspoiled beaches in Maine and are less than 45 minute drive away as is a water park perfect for kids and adults alike. For an old fashioned carnival atmosphere head down to Old Orchard Beach.

Every effort has been made to assure the amenities at the home ensure a comfortable stay and enjoyable experience. Openings in the schedule don’t happen often. Book early for those remaining and get an opportunity to have a special Maine stay.

About Cathie Tondreau Dittrich

I'm Cathie Tondreau Dittrich the sister of the owners and the granddaughter of the original owner of Tondreau Point. My husband and I live across the cove. Ten years ago we moved here permanently and have been working with my brother and sister-in-law to continually improve the cottage to make it ready for your stay. I managed the rentals of our own cottage for 15 years and now I am doing it for my brother.

Cathie Tondreau Dittrich purchased this house in 1996

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Tondreau family,



We love your amazing home and have shared wonderful memories here. Our children travel from PA and the DC area to join us for a week each year. We fly in from FL. The guys fish, the girls read and enjoy walks and nature. We've learned to team up and prepare awesome family meals. Our favorite spot is the porch where we love to gather and laugh and catch up together.



My dear father was from St. Francis, ME. I have fond early memories attending Coffin Elementary School in Brunswick when he worked at Bowdoin. It is so wonderful to return years later and make new memories with my own family.



Thank you!!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage at the end of May. The cottage offers wonderful views of water. It is located at the end of a private road so one can enjoy walking or riding a bicycle. The cottage can easily accommodate 6 adults. Great vacation place, I wish we could stay another week :)

Paradise in Harpswell, Maine

  • 4 of 5

We loved being there and couldn't have asked for a more peaceful location and beautiful house. To wake up in the morning and have your coffee looking out any window and either seeing sailboats floating in the bay or watching the Eiders swim by to get to the small island out in front. I would call this a little bit of Maine Heaven!

An oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had an exceptional stay in Harpswell! The house immediately made us feel at home and the views are stunning. The pictures don't even do this place justice. A huge thank you to Cathie and Bob for their care of the house and communication before, during and after our visit. I hope to be back soon!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I have only the best to say about Tondreau Point. I hated to leave and would have extended my stay if it were possible. I live nearby and wanted a quiet waterfront cottage to retreat for a week of study and reflection. The biggest challenge was where to sit..since everywhere one looks, inside and out, is a comfortable welcoming spot with a water view. It's clean and bright...there are three bedrooms and it's very child friendly as well. There is no doubt that I hope to return.

An added pleasantry was meeting some of the people who live on the point, many of whom are Cathie's relatives.❤️

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for relaxing, very quiet, close to places to visit if you'd ever want to leave for a day excursion. Wonderful mattresses and bedding. Excellent breezes all day long. This was our second year here and we plan to keep coming back. The best place we have rented so far.

Fantastic location. Perfect getaway from the world. Brought three boys 10-14. Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was perfectly located on the tip of a point. Deep water raft for swimming and fishing. Lots of space in and out. Basement full of things to do. Just 15 minutes to town or further out in the islands for great food.

We will be back
