This is 'the way life should be'... Camp Card Cove is a comfortable shingle-style Maine camp/cottage on large private 2 acre lot in Harpswell. Located at the end of a long dead-end gravel driveway, this architecturally designed Maine waterfront camp is yours to enjoy. Its location is peaceful and private on beautiful Card Cove, a protected deep-water anchorage, just a few minutes sail from gorgeous Casco Bay. The entire level lot and over two hundred feet of owned waterfront and private dock are at your disposal. Fish, barbecue, relax and rest as you gaze out on the cove and breathe in the salty fresh air. The fall is the perfect time to spend in Maine, enjoy hikes and day trips without the crowds. Explore the beauty of Mid Coast Maine, including Booth bay Harbor, which is only 45 minutes away. Relax at night with the gas fireplace indoors, or outdoors with our fire pit.
The home features 4 bedrooms ( Master, bedroom one and two and loft )and 3 bathrooms for maximum comfort with minimum hassle, there is a total of 2600 square feet of living space. This is a newer construction home, not a fixer upper, in immaculate condition. We can send additional pictures of Quahog Bay, the grounds or the interior of the cottage if you like, just ask. Why stay at hotel or Inn when you can stay at your own private oceanfront cottage? The home also features a separate 'kids suite' with two sets of bunk beds on the second floor with TV/DVD and separate bathroom. The kids can be close by yet the parents can have their privacy.
The master bedroom opens onto a private second floor balcony with ocean views to Card Cove and Quahog Bay. Sip some wine and watch the sailboats and lobster men from your private porch. There is another bedroom on the second floor, as well as one on the main floor, perfect for guests that find it difficult to maneuver upstairs. A large but cozy living room with gas fireplace and TV as well as a screened in porch and outdoor deck complete the perfect vacation! The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and glasses. The view from the kitchen is incredible, and most likely you would want to cook at the house, instead of frequenting restaurants!! However, if you choose to eat out the towns of Brunswick and Bath have some very fine restaurants and Portland's Old Port is an easy 35 minute drive.
Boaters take note...there is a mooring and dock available for use with prior arrangements so sail to the home or bring your boat and explore Casco Bay. We also include the use of a small dinghy and two kayaks, a 10.6 foot 'Precision' and a 13.8 foot Old Town 'Loon'. Bring your own if you prefer or make it easy and fun and just use ours!
Imagine sailing on your day-sailor in protected Card Cove . Sail the bay and smell the salt air.
Late summer and Fall are more beautiful than ever. Watch the changing leaves, eat lobster in the cool fall air.
Don't forget to plan ahead for the summer..peak weeks book well ahead of the summer so reserve your week now.
Hope to hear from you soon.

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.

We really enjoyed your house and in spite of all the pictures you have on your website there is no way to do justice to such a lovely house. The sunrise over the water and watching all the lobster boats were both beautiful.

Harpswell is amazing....one minute you are at the coast the next you can be dining in Portland, Brunswick or Bath...attending a performance of the Maine State Music Theatre at Bowdoin or at a movie. Its the perfect spot for a summer vacation!
John and Karen purchased this cottage in 2003
Central location to Portland and most of the MidCoast!
Sailing, fishing, birdwatching and relaxing!
My family and I were fortunate to be in Maine at your Camp Card Cove residence during this year's heat wave. My children and grandchildren enjoyed swimming off the dock. Being on the ocean gave us the opportunity to see bald eagles, ospreys and seals.
I greatly appreciated that the children had their own suite with plenty of room to play and store their stuff. This vacation was fantastic, fun and I am hoping to be at Camp Card Cove next year.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Camp Card Cove! The house is beautifully designed and has all you need. My husband caught a legal 28" striper this morning! Certainly a highlight of the trip. We ate so much lobster, toasted marshmallows on the outdoor firepit and immensely enjoyed kayaking the cove.
Plenty of space for the whole family. The pier and dock where very nice. Nice to have the canoe and kayaks to use. Nice to have the screened porch as well as the deck outside. The grill and fire pit were a plus. Plenty of room for all who gather. Large dinning table for family to enjoy meals together.
Great week weather wise and unfortunately no fish caught. Accommodations and yard were great, plenty of room for our family and dog. Quiet and peaceful location. Grilling and kitchen set up was more than adequate for our needs. Enjoyed many lobster as well. Topped off by a full moonrise sailing charter.
This was our first time renting Camp Card Cove. We shared the house with our extended family and two dogs. It was perfect for our group. The home is actually bigger than what the pics show. The kitchen was well stocked for the professional chef in the family. We looked for the perfect location to bring our stand up paddle boards, and we found it! Along with the kayaks provided with the rental we enjoyed many excursions around the coves. We even spotted eagles a few times! We hope to come back again. Many Thanks to John and Karen who were always quick to respond to any questions. Aloha
My extended family rented this house and our one concern was having enough room to spread out and not drive eachother crazy :) Boy, did we ever have enough room! The house is laid out in a way that people can definitely have their own space, while being able to eat and relax together in the kitchen/dining room. The dock, kayaks, and rowboat were definite highlights, as well as the firepit. The sunsets were unreal. Also, I can't imagine a more responsive host. I was travelling with a 2 month old (and 1 year old) and some finicky parents and had a few questions leading up to the trip. Every single time I emailed, I received a response back within minutes. I highly recommend this property and these hosts. Karen, thanks for a wonderful stay and the opportunity to create such amazing memories for my family.
This is our 7th year bringing my Mom (now 94) up to Maine to reunion with many in our family. The area is close to our relatives but would be worth traveling to anyway. This is the 3rd time we have rented Camp Card Cove and it gets better each time. We chose 2 weeks in Sept. to avoid the summer crowds. The weather was unseasonably cool but beautiful, and we caught the beginning of the color change. There is a downstairs bedroom with step in shower that is perfect for mom, and 2 upstairs bedrooms plus a seperate apartment with 2 twins,a bunk bed and bathroom that is quite private that my nieces family stayed in. We found the next door neighbor is a Lobstaman and they delivered 40 pounds of Lobsta and some crabs right to our dock via skiff at a good price. We feasted for 3 days. Our hosts are wonderful people and offered us the use of kayaks and a canoe, which really made the visit all that more enjoyable. The huge lawn facing the cove is ideal for soccer and other family games. We are only about 15 minutes from good shopping in Cooks Corners ( Super Walmart, etc.) so it is easy living there. This place is hard to beat. We'll be back again for sure
