About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

'Lofty' is a two+ bedroom waterfront Maine cottage with second floor loft (hence the name). Don't stay in an old musty cottage! Treat yourself to a newly and fully renovated camp that is ready for your next Maine vacation. 'Lofty' is located on a private, quiet,dead-end gravel road that lends itself to peaceful respites.

'Lofty' is the larger of a pair of cute cottages, the smaller of which was renovated in 2007 and is listed as VRBO #138154 or 'Cozy Oceanfront Cottage'. The twin cottage setup is ideal for larger family gatherings or groups who may wish to rent both for ultimate comfort and privacy. Perfect for occasions where one may prefer to have separate sleeping arrangements. Guests who rent both cottages will receive a substantial savings on the rental rates. Alternatively, they may be rented individually and still have lots of privacy as the lot size is large. Use of two sea kayaks is included with Lofty (exclusively)

'Lofty' is comfortable and easily accessible from Brunswick and Portland and features two private bedrooms with queen size beds as well as a loft space that will has two twin beds. One bedroom will have wide views of Quahog Bay. Kids will love sleeping in the loft, playing games and watching the boats and birds from the large windows. Full kitchen and open living design are the hallmarks of this cottage. Knotty pine interior and cathedral ceilings in the family/living room space make for a light open feeling. The floor plan is open with a kitchen living room space that flows onto a full size deck just feet from the waters edge. Large panoramic windows lend to an open feeling that extends the indoors out. Beautiful views from the kitchen and living area. Watch the ocean and sailboats from the deck or the warmth of the living room as you sit by the glow of the gas woodstove.

The huge over-sized dock and float with outdoor deck on the water's edge is a big attraction.The pier is probably one of the largest non-commercial structures on Quahog Bay. The rental of the home includes use of two kayaks during your stay. Boaters may be interested in renting the mooring for the week and arriving by boat.

Updated fotos of the interior and grounds are available in the links below.

Oh, by the way, 'Lofty' will be handicap accessible. A gentle ramp leads to a wide 36 inch door and open hallway and floor plan. The camp will be suitable for wheelchair bound or gait impaired guests. Please e-m ail with any specific questions.

We do rent into November so reserve your Fall Maine vacation soon!Can't afford a real relaxing vacation? I don't think so....e mail us now for more information on our Fall specials!

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.

Location

Mooring is available at an additional fee, prior reservation is needed.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.
