About Marnie Dean
My husband and I live in Southern Maine with our two daughters. We love living in Maine and while our work keeps us closer to Portland our hearts are in Port Clyde.
Marnie Dean purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Marnie Dean chose Port Clyde
Tom grew up vacationing on the St. George peninsula. I first found Port Clyde as a TV reporter covering fishing stories. When my career took me to other parts of the country I always knew I would end up back in Maine and I even said on air that 'there was a little piece of property in Port Clyde with my name on it!' We found that special place in Drift Inn Cottage. We've been renters for years and feel very lucky to now be owners of this lovely house.
What makes this Cottage unique
There is something so decadent about being able to take your morning cup of coffee and walk just a few steps to a sandy beach to watch the sunrise over the ocean. So many times over the years people on the beach would watch us walk back to the house and say how lucky we were to be staying in that house. We certainly feel lucky.

What a View!!
Sitting on a comfortable porch with a fresh brewed cup of coffee overlooking the changing tides at Drift Inn Beach with Mosquito Island, the Brothers, Hay Ledge & Gunning Rocks, doesn't get much better unless you swap the coffee for wine. The Drift Inn Cottage was warm, comfortable with a whimsical landscape surrounding the cottage. We walked across the street with our kayak and headed out into along the coast. Beautiful with harbor seals playing around our kayak.
A truly memorable stay.
Even better than the photos or the description!
From the moment we walked in it felt like home. Everything said “welcome” and we were relaxed from the beginning. Not only was everything we could ever need provided, it was all of very good quality too.
Marni reached out to make sure everything was fine, which it was, and offered any help we needed. Even the weather was working with us.
So many cozy places to sit and read, chat with old friends or just enjoy some quiet moments with a cup of freshly ground coffe watching the tide come in.
This would be the house I would recommend for first time visitors to Port Clyde or to people that have been coming for years.
We would have loved to stay longer and hopefully will be able to next time.
The best of Maine!
A charming, whistle clean, comfortable cottage with a superb view and gorgeous gardens! We loved every minute of our stay there and appreciated all the little and large details the owners have thoughtfully and generously provided for their guests. The walk to the lighthouse was perfect, and the picturesque village of Port Clyde, with all its connections to the Wyeths, was hard to beat. We've already made our reservation for next year!
We had a wonderful time at the cottage and are already looking forward to next year. Marnie is a great hostess and the the house, and bunkhouse!, were very comfortable, perfectly clean and well stocked. Beach across the street is the frosting on the cake.
A special place of heaven.
Beautiful place! Wish we could spend more time here but always leave feeling so content and relaxed.
This is a beautiful home right on the ocean. You can tell the owners love the place because there is such an incredible attention to detail inside and out. Lots of room to relax, the beach really is just steps away, and a great yard for playing cornhole. Of course, we picked the one week of the summer when the weather was so so, but Drift Inn Cottage was wonderful and we made the most of it. Can't wait to return when the sun is shining.
Thank you for the kind review, and we hope to welcome you and your family back next year with sunshine!
Port Clyde is a picturesque fishing and lobstering village at the southern tip of the St. George Peninsula. The village has art galleries, two restaurants, and a lobster co-op where you can buy fresh lobster directly from the fishermen. The village has the remote quality of an island, with the convenience of being able to drive to active towns like Rockland (15 miles) and Camden (20 miles) where there are shops, museums, movies, and many restaurants. You can also take the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island, a haven for artists and hikers Monhegan is a great day trip. Marshall Point Lighthouse is about a mile walk from the cottage. This lighthouse was featured in the movie 'Forrest Gump' and is a must see stop during your stay.
