This is your Maine getaway, the one you have been searching for! Perfect for the couple who want to experience the coast of Maine from the water's edge and not a cramped hotel room. The cottage sits on a large lot with its larger 2 bedroom sister cottage 'Lofty' (VRBO# 165589) about 200 feet away. Rent one or if you prefer rent both and have the grounds and dock all to yourself...sort of your own family vacation compound.
Just a few steps outside the cottage and down a gently sloping path is A HUGE DEEP WATER dock (not tidal) with large deck/landing and open ocean views. The dock is shared with Lofty Cottage. The is the BEST part of the cottage and a lot of fun. There is a nice picnic table on the landing so you can enjoy a quiet meal and gaze at the beautiful views. The dock is shared with Lofty (VRBO 165589). Kayak and or swim and enjoy your fresh Maine lobster on your own dock! (Kayaks are not provided) Kids and adults alike will enjoy pulling up the lobster trap and seeing what sea treasures are inside.
Water views from every room. Located on a dead end gravel road typical of Harpswell, a mix of local color, cottages and fisherman. This cute one bedroom cottage is perfect for relaxing on the ocean and enjoying the outdoors. Private yet only minutes from downtown Brunswick including Bowdoin College, the Maine State Music Theater, restaurants and shops. Fully renovated in 2007 this cottage features a knotty pine interior, new appliances and a full bath with large shower.
The cottage has a comfy knotty pine living room with cathedral ceiling that opens into a small deck just feet from the waters edge. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink as you watch the ospreys dive and the seals swim. The living room has a small color TV with DVD player for leisure time as well as mini stereo with mp3 player plug in capability. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities including a big lobster pot.
Kayak to Little Snow island or interior Quahog Bay (see link below for more information on the island). This is a very neat kayak trip. (Kayaks not provided, bring your own or rent at nearby facilities)
If you like hikes and are looking for a wonderful one, Karen and I recommend Morse Mountain Preserve owned by Bates College in Phippsburg.. It's a 4 mile loop that leads to Seawall Beach, the views are incredible and the hike is doable even with kids. For more information see the link below.
Attention Boaters....there is a mooring available that will handle up to a 30' boat, if you need to arrive by boat or moor at the house for the week. We are getting many inquiries from sailors who want to arrive by boat. The mooring and dock are available with prior arrangements and a small additional fee for use of the mooring.
Cozy is the perfect place for a quiet retreat. Compared to a hotel this is a wonderful value and a great way to experience the coast of Maine. To get a bird's eye view use google earth.

Renting a private home is different than staying at a hotel. It is important to ask questions before you reserve and to have realistic expectations. We have done our best to describe our properties, however, guest expectations vary. If you have special requests or needs please ask before you reserve. We want to avoid renter's remorse or the old "this was not what I thought it was going to be like". In most cases guests never asked any questions!!!! Refunds at the time of check in are not permitted.
PS. Ask about our long term rentals...maybe stay the summer!

Cozy is a comfy spot to rest and enjoy the Maine coast.
Harpswell is a wonderful place to use as home base and explore the Maine coast from Portland to Boothbay.
Views, dock, kayaks, quiet, that Oh so close to the ocean feel.
Very clean, quiet and beautiful. Wonderful place and owners very responsive and polite. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Cozy Cottage is located near a plethora of wonderful things to do, like paddling, walking on the beach, shopping in vibrant Brunswick, and eating at dozens of interesting restaurants. The cottage itself is simple and clean and has a lovely view out over the water. It had everything two people could possibly need! There are many interesting little coves to explore in your boat right outside the door!
Spectacular property : beautiful setting, quiet, clean cabin, and the little heater worked great! Bring your own pillow.
Had a wonderful time spent at Cozy Cottage, views are breath taking from morning to evening, enjoyed the dock which was very acessible from cottage. Enjoyed exploring more of the Harpswell area and located some fantastic seafood places such as Erica's and cannot forget The Vegetable Corner for their great daily soups and butcher counter. Cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, the only suggestion would make is adding some shelving in kitchen in place of large mirror as storage space was very limited, as I had to use small table for that purpose plus as a work area when preparing a meal. Overall love the cottage and all it had to offer, thank you John and Karen for sharing your little gem.
We had a lovely time at a scenic place! Very clean and comfortable, with nice amenities! The bed is wicked comfy! This is my second stay here and I was very pleased!! We would recommend Cozy cottage to everyone that wants a quiet , peaceful stay!
This little cabin of John and Karen's is fantastic. The view alone from both the cabin and the dock is amazing, but they have also tried to make this cozy cabin as comfortable as possible for you. The cabin is located about 30 to 50 minutes from Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, Bath, and the southern ends of Maine routes 24 and 123* (both have amazing food and views; *-end of 123 being Erica's Seafood and the Dolphin Marina); this gives you easy access to shopping and sight seeing. My wife and I had a really great time and hope to make it back to Maine at another one of John and Karen's properties, or even this one again
The Town of Harpswell, located on Casco Bay, Is a short scenic ride from Portland, Freeport, Bath and Boothbay Maine. Harpswell is the unspoiled coastal community that is accessible by way of the beautiful Bowdoin College town of Brunswick. Harpswell is a unique coastal community which recently celebrated its 250th birthday. For over 100 years Harpswell has been a mecca for vacationers seeking a saltwater environment, a serene way of life, and an abundance of natural beauty. Its 216 miles of coastline consists of Harpswell Neck, the three large islands of
Sebascodegan (Great Island), Orr’s, and Bailey, which are connected by bridges, the most notable being The Cribstone Bridge, and a scattering of over 200 smaller islands accessible only by boat. With some of the few remaining working harbors on the Maine coast, it offers an authenticity of which we are proud.
Harpswell has it all! Light houses, Ocean views, walking trails, beaches, Historical sites, working lobster harbors and marinas all here in the Mid Coast Maine region.
