Overview

About the property

Uniquely positioned just feet from the water's edge, sleeps 2, explore midcoast

We have the perfect location to relax and enjoy the scenic Maine coast. This is a nicely furnished, ground-floor, studio apartment in a two story house. We overlook Hopkins Island and Dingley Cove and the picturesque Maine shorelines beyond. You can launch your kayak from our yard.

Hopkins View has a large, fully-equipped kitchen (including dishwasher) and dining area and a bathroom with a tub and shower. The living room has a couch and a love-seat with views out a picture window. The bedroom which has just three walls (thus we must call this a studio...open on the living room side) has a quality queen-size bed.

You are just feet from the water (really makes us a special location) and can watch the active lobstering, recreational boating, and coastal wildlife. You have use of a BBQ and a small yard for sitting outside or eating at your picnic table. You'll enjoy lovely sunrises and beautiful evening light. We are the perfect spot to launch your kayak or canoe. The islands and coast in our area are perfect for exploring. A small public boat ramp is two blocks away. And we have a deep water mooring; ask about it if interested.

Take a walk into Cundy's Harbor. Buy your fresh lobsters at Watson's General Store and have them in a pot in minutes. (You can walk down to the water and choose yours right out of the holding box.) Cundy's Harbor is a gem! A quaint, active fishing harbor with a small summer restaurant on the wharf, a cute gift shop and little general store.

We are located between the Portland/Casco Bay area to our south and the Midcoast Maine area just to our north. Makes us a perfect location for day trips. Bath, Wiscassett, Boothbay, Camden, Portland, Freeport, etc. etc. Museums, hiking, antiquing, eating, shopping, exploring villages and coastline...and much more.

PLEASE NOTE: We have optional fees for use of our sheets and towels if you would prefer not to bring your own, and we offer post-stay cleaning if you would rather not do the cleaning as described in our Rental Agreement. (Renters are asked to leave Hopkins View as clean as they found it unless they pay the cleaning fee.) During your inquiry, please let us know if you are interested in the linens or cleaning option; if not, we can remove those fees from the Quote.

We have a no pets policy. Additionally, Osprey's Nest is not appropriate for children.

There is a downstairs apartment that sleeps two and a cottage next door that sleeps six... could be a great setup for a couple families wanting to be near... but not too close. VRBO #s 23126 and 24124. .

A recent visitor said: 'What a wonderful vacation. Enjoyed the view every day. We made day trips from Kennebunkport to Bar Harbor. There is so much to see. Your place is very comfortable and relaxing. We would definitely recommend staying here in this amazing setting. Thank you so much. (from Florida)

A completely serene place to enjoy Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend Thanksgiving than Hopkin's View! The view from the many windows simply looked like a postcard, it was incredibly peaceful, and the unit itself was larger and nicer than the listing indicated.

It truly was a wonderful, relaxing visit! We hope to come back again next year.

A Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

Hopkins View is a very sweet, little cottage right at the water's edge. The views are magnificent! You are located in Cundy's Harbor, roughly a 20 minute drive from Cook's Corner shopping and Bowdoin College in Brunswick. The cottage location is very quiet and rural, but lovely and restful.

The cottage is the ground floor apartment in a 2-story frame dwelling, and everything is cozy and comfortable. Jean has made sure of that! It's tastefully decorated, and the pantry is even supplied with starters of many supplies. Everything is laid out so well with little tags, too, so you know how to work the TV remotes, or which light switch goes to which lamp, for instance. Kitchen is full-sized and comfortable: full refrig, nice MW, electric stove, double-sink. Bed was great: queen-sized and very comfortable. Morning view out the windows can't be beat. Go, and enjoy the Maine Coast! Just remember to gas up your car at Cook's Corner b4 you drive down the peninsula. ;)

My Maine Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional rental with a fully equipped kitchen and tastefully decorated living area with Jean Strock's beautiful original paintings Theres a flat screen tv, wireless internet and a library of books, puzzles, music and great selection of movie videos. The view is a glimpse of a quiet hidden cove with some of the best lobsters I have ever eaten!

From here, I explored nearby sights of lighthouses and quaint harbor towns, shopped at LLBean and the outlets, and enjoyed seafood everywhere!! I would highly recommend Jean's rental property!

Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

This property was very peaceful. We came to celebrate our 35 wedding anniversary. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for peace and quiet. I recommend going to Watsons general store and picking out your lobsters. It's not as intimidating as it seems to cook lobsters. If you are looking for a grocery store, Shaws was very nice.

The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is the cost of 25.00 to rent sheets and towels. I know you have to wash towels, sheets etc...but, for 25.00 it would have been nice to have more than 1 towel each for 4 nights. Otherwise it was very nice
