About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)
We are right between the Portland/Casco Bay area to the south and the Midcoast Maine area just to our north. Our cottage makes a great home-base for your vacation.
Comfortable beds and furniture throughout. Bright and sunny, with gorgeous sunrises and lovely sunset glow. The first floor has a fully equipped kitchen with cherry cabinets, a generous sized bathroom with stall shower, a living room (windows on three sides), a dining area, and one bedroom with a queen-size bed. The second floor has two interconnected bedrooms, two twin beds in each.
Cundy's Harbor is a quaint, active lobster and fishing harbor that you can drive or walk to. Visit the Holbrook Wharf Restaurant (BYOB) for a summer lunch or dinner, or just ice cream. Visit the cute gift shop and either of the two general stores (Watson's and Holbrook's).
We are centrally located for exploring coastal Maine villages. Day-trip options include Camden, Wiscasset, Bath, Boothbay, Portland, Freeport and LL Bean, beaches and parks. Other choices include the Bowdoin College Music Festival, Maine State Theater, many museums, boat rides, antiquing, walking and hiking trails, etc., etc.
We have OPTIONAL fees for post-stay cleaning and for use of our sheets and towels if you would rather not bring your own. PLEASE let us know if you want those fees removed and we will adjust the quote. Our Rental Agreement states that we expect visitors to leave the cottage as clean as you found it unless you want to pay the Cleaning Fee.
The house/cottage next door has an upstairs and ground floor unit, sleeping two and four... great for a family reunion... privacy for all. See VRBO #24127, 23126 or click on 'Links to more information - All my rental Listings' below.

A recent guest said: 'Waking up so near the water was an extraordinary gift. The stars at night, the seals sunbathing on the rocks, the lobster dinner at Holbrooks, the quiet all made for a sublime retreat.' Another guest said: 'Such a comfortable cottage with so many amenities. The views were so beautiful from the house. We were able to relax and loved exploring the rocks at low tide. We found lots of treasures! Thank you for sharing the house with us. We had a wonderful time and it is sad to leave.'
Note: Saturday is our normal turnover day. We can sometimes accommodate arrivals and departures on other days, especially in the spring or fall.

About the owner: We love to share this wonderful spot with our visitors. Getting the property ready for rental has been a multi-generational undertaking. We are always interested in suggestions on how we can make our visitors' time in Sailor's Rest even better.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Watching the weather change and the tides come and go is somehow extremely relaxing. But when you are ready to be a tourist there are endless outing possibilities from a day in Boothbay or Camden to a walk on the rocks. The area has all sorts of peninsulas and villages to explore....all with beautiful settings. Be sure to take drives and discover the beauty of our area. Or explore our islands from your kayak.
