About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Located near the tip of Barter's Point, this charming cottage has filtered views of the harbor and offshore islands. It is only a 2 minute stroll to our shorefront access where kayaks or other watercraft can be launched. The cottage has three bedrooms:one with a queen-sized bed, and two with full size beds. There is an eat-in kitchen,a new full bath with a tub/shower(renovated in 2015) and a fire-placed living room. Enjoy beautiful Maine summer days from the sunny deck which is outfitted with comfortable adirondack chairs, or dine outside at the picnic table.

The cottage is equipped with broadband internet, Cable TV, a DVD player with a collection of DVDs, and a telephone with local service. For those early spring and late autumn days, there is also central heat. The weathered gray cottage is a great place to enjoy the simple pleasures of Mid-Coast Maine.

Things to do:
Kayak out of the cove and 'hug' the coastline or explore the waters around the offshore islands before heading into the harbor that is dotted with lobster boats and yachts during the summer months. Stop at the public landing and pick up a snack at the general store before continuing on your way.

Would you rather take a scenic stroll or go for a short drive? Head toward the village and enjoy the water view along the way. Smell the salt air. Drop by the bakery for a breakfast croissant. Pick up a book to read at Jackson Memorial Library which also has WiFi. Continue on to Granite Gardens for a cup of coffee in a peaceful setting. A rustic or refined lunch or dinner can be had in either local restaurants or in those a short drive away.

Do you want to go to the beach?
Drift-In Beach is a beautiful sandy beach at low tide. It is located on the road to Port Clyde ~ 4 miles away. Bring the kids. Take a picnic lunch. Have a great day!

Are you interested in other other activities?
Tour Marshall Point Lighthouse a few miles down the road in Port Clyde. Or, go up to Rockland. There, you can walk up to the lighthouse at Owl's Head. Then walk out to the lighthouse at the end of the breakwater in Rockland Harbor. There are photo opportunities everywhere. Go on to Rockport, and Camden. Drive, climb or mountain bike to the top of Mt. Battie. Delight in the view of Camden and the offshore islands. Picnic areas are located at the base of the mountain. Browse the shops as you walk around Camden Village or purchase a 2-4 hour cruise of Penobscot Bay on one of the schooners located in Camden Harbor.

Another great daytrip is to book passage on the ferry from Port Clyde for a trip to Monhegan Island. Bring a picnic lunch,and enjoy the scenic views as you hike around the island before returning the same day.

A multiplex movie theater is located in Thomaston. A public golf course is located in Rockland. Enjoy shopping, antiquing and visiting the art galleries and museums in the surrounding areas.

You can either dine in or dine out on fresh Maine seafood. After dinner, relax on the cottage deck and enjoy the onshore breeze as you watch the sun set, or sit in front of a crackling fire and read a good book, play a board game,or plan your activities for the next day.

  • Children Welcome:

    My summer vacations as a child were always in Maine. My dad's family was from Tenants Harbor. My children have also enjoyed the coast. Here they learned to row a boat in 'The Nook' (our shorefront access). Now, they prefer to kayak. They explored the shoreline and the beach at Drift In bringing along a picnic lunch. With their cousins they chased fireflies on hot summer nights and made S'mores.We waited and watched for the Mackarel to start their run and then fished for them on the town dock. Yes, these are the simple pleasures of Maine! A time to redefine family time. A place to relax......moreless

Owner info

About the owner: Born and bred on the East Coast I never tire of returning to my 'roots'. My summer and fall destination is ALWAYS Maine. My grandfather was from Tenants Harbor. My father returned to the "Harbor" and bought property on Barter's Point and built cottages for his family to enjoy. Our family spent several weeks each summer enjoying the quiet beauty of the area. Now, my own children and grandchildren return to Maine, taking time off from their busy lives to enjoy a place that is very special to us all!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is within walking distance of the village. We have shoreline access just 2 minutes away!
