Great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this quaint cottage walking distance to one of our favorite beaches - Pemaquid Beach. An open, airy and light-filled cottage with a screened in porch. Perfect for a small family.

lovely and charming. perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

In August of 2015 my husband and I rented this charming and historic cottage to be near our children and grandchildren. We found this place large, very clean and airy. Perfect place for families and friends to gather1 I was unable to write a review following our stay, but it has been nagging at me. I wanted to thank the very helpful owners who went out of their way to give us information about the area. You will enjoy the cottage, the setting with an easy stroll to the neighborhood Mother's Beach.

Spacious, Convenient and Well-Equipped Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in the cottage with another couple and found it a very comfortable place to stay. For two couples, there was plenty of room. Outstanding amenities include a pretty screened-in porch and a kitchen very well suited to meal preparation and easy seating for 6 people. There are lots of comfortable chairs and couches for the evening, and the beds are very comfortable. There are windows all around, and so the ventilation is very effective. The cottage was very clean when we arrived. It is only a short walk to the beach and to the boat launch and the local restaurant. It's a beautiful quiet area, away from hectic Booth Bay, but convenient to picturesque Maine scenery, galleries and good shopping. The owners were very responsive and easy to deal with in arranging our stay. This place is a great bargain -consider it for your next Maine holiday.

We love this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, well behaved dog and I have been staying at this cottage for a week every year, since 2004. Rog and Dottie have created a "home away"--the cottage suits us perfectly.

We love the cottage's: cleanliness, screened in porch, cheerful color scheme, the short walk to the beach, the wonderful restaurants nearby, beautiful landscaping, wireless access, washer and dryer, the charm/history of the cottage... and much more!

Rog and Dottie, the "landlords," have become friends.They are gracious hosts, always available to make sure we are having a great time.

Our only regret has been that we've stayed just one week, not two. We hope to remedy that problem in the year ahead!

We offer our enthusiastic recommendation for the "Charming Vintage Maine Cottage."
