Property description

Imagine enjoying a hammock between the birch trees overlooking this beautiful, quiet cove... views of the ocean from every room! Western exposure makes for wonderful sunsets.

Our little hidden, cocktail deck, tucked under the birch trees near the water's edge is perfect for enjoying the sounds of the ocean as the day winds to a close. Our big yard is great for family soccer games or hanging out on the tire swing. Our cozy cottage has a stone fireplace, breakfast bar and comfortable beds! This home can sleep up to six people.

The cottage has three floors - Master suite upstairs(queen) with bathroom with shower - Basement floor has two bedrooms (double in one room and twin with trundle in the other) which open to yard - Middle level has our kitchen, living room, dining area and 2nd bath with tub/shower and washer/dryer.

There is an outdoor shower with incredible views!

Sliding glass doors from the living room open to a deck that overlooks the yard and ocean. The kitchen has a gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster oven. There is a full set of pots/pans(including lobster pot!) Dogs are allowed (additional security deposit.) Metal dog crate available (40-50 pound dog size.) No smoking.

There are local lobster docks where you can buy your crab or lobster fresh daily- and there are a variety of restaurants within a ten mile radius. The town of Brunswick is 15 minutes away and has a large shopping area. Freeport- with it's many outlet stores and LL Bean - is 30 minutes away. Kayaks can be rented locally and there are many islands to explore or harbor seals to follow if you have water transportation. There are also wonderful walks for humans and / or dogs nearby.

The cove is tidal with great swimming at high tide and tide pool exploring at low tide. We recommend bringing water shoes so you can explore among the rocks and shells.

Bridget,
We loved, loved, loved your place. It was so serene and lovely. Just what we needed.
My friend, Kristin, chose to leave her sheets there due to her bag being filled and also thinking it would be nice for some renters to have them if they needed sheets. We did wonder if most of your renters come by car...the only thing that we would maybe suggest is that you do throw a couple old towels/sheets there for those who are coming by plane. It was TOTALLY 'doable' but did take up a bit of suitcase space.
The place was just fantastic. It was a perfect retreat. I hope to return.
Best,
Sandra

Hi Bridget
We enjoyed the stay in your vacation home very much and felt in love with the beautiful sunsets - see the wonderful picture attached. We enjoyed even the rainy days, staying by the fire place reading books.
Thank you for your hospitality.
Adam & Agnieszka

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I grew up in Maine and have summered in Harpswell for over 15 years. Love the quietness of Harpswell.

Why the Owner Chose Harpswell, ME, USA:
There is plenty to do in the area and yet you are off the beaten track. We love to sit with coffee and watch the birds in the morning and then have a cocktail on the little sunset deck in the birches in the evening. Restaurants are near or you can cook your own lobster or grill with great meats from the local butcher.
