Beautiful home in peaceful yet convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The Cove House is located on a quiet cove with spectacular views of Casco Bay and gorgeous sunsets. We enjoyed swimming off of the dock and taking the canoe out on the water. The house itself is beautifully maintained and very comfortable. The Zimmermans are lovely to deal with and offered us many helpful suggestions of things to do and see in the area. We visited Freeport, Portland, and Kennebunkport, as well as Bowdoin and Bates Colleges. We also enjoyed running and biking on the quiet roads around the house. We highly recommend the Cove House and hope to return for another stay!

Beautiful home and location!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families of 4 - that stayed here, so we had 4 adults and 4 children in age from 3-8 and this house was perfect! It's a beautiful home, very new and very well kept and it's in a beautiful location. The kids all loved playing down on the dock and around in the yard. The home was very spacious for the eight of us and we never felt cramped. There was nothing more we needed from the home, the owners have thought of everything! We would definitely like to return and you will not be disappointed if you rent this home!

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house. Our family of 5 adults and 1 baby stayed there for 7 days from Sept. 10 thru Sept. 17 and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the house and the location. It was perfect for us. The owners were very friendly, very organized and very accommodating, and as other reviews have said, thought of everything. They even had plenty of coat hangers in the closets, which doesn’t seem like a big deal but it is if all your clothes are in suitcases and you want to hang them up! The house was immaculate and spacious. The three bedrooms were very large and airy, as were all the rooms in the house. Perfect house for anyone.

Couldn't Ask for Anything More

  • 5 of 5

This was the first of many vacation homes we've rented that felt genuinely welcoming and as comfortable as our own home. It was meticulously clean but not sterile and had everything we needed, and more. Jan and Ken pay attention to every detail so their guests have little to do other than enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the idyllic setting. You won't be disappointed!

Immaculate ocean front home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week at the Cove House. The pictures don't do it justice. We loved the dock access and my twins were able to experience canoeing for the first time! The place felt quiet and secluded but was close to downtown! The owners were very friendly.

Wonderful, relaxing and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at the Cove house. The homeowners are very warm and welcoming, and the house very well equiped. The house is perfect for relaxing, it is right on the water and made use of the canoe and rented kayaks. Really worth going there and would certainly go back again. Shopping at Freeport is also great and only 10 minutes away.
