Uniquely positioned just feet from the water's edge, sleeps 2, explore midcoast
(Spring Discount is included in our spring rates) 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. .

Peaceful and quaint cottage, beautiful sunrise and wonderful view of the harbor.
I'm so pleased my husband and I chose Cundys Harbor for our vacation spot. Hoskins View is where we stayed, the cottage was the perfect size for both of us. The owners have everything you need to make your stay comfortable including all the information in the area, from things to do and see. I definitely recommend this little peace of heaven, for a lay back relaxing holiday. The icing on the cake, was the fresh lobster we bought and cooked for dinner, it was amazing.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful spot with the rest of the world.

Clean, peacefully quiet, semi secluded feeling
This was our second year returning to this rental. This year we stayed two weeks, two glorious, wonderful, relaxing weeks. There is so much to do, Orr's Island, Bailey's Island, so close to Freeport and Portland. Day shopping, tons of great breweries to tour and sample local craft beers (if you're into that!). We took in several lighthouses this year too. There is a beautiful German shorthaired pointer and a beagle from a few houses over that come by to visit and play catch. It's nice to get a dog fix since we miss our four legged friends! For water sports lovers this place rocks! The ocean is literally about 20 steps from the door. The pictures posted don't do it justice, it is so close! We kayaked almost daily! Really cool coves to check out, great boats to see and we saw seals and an eagle on our kayaking adventures! They were stunningly majestic to see swimming and flying in their environment. Every evening we would sit out in the quiet yard with a cocktail and just watch the world go by. I highly recommend this rental, we'll be back in 2018, just haven't picked our dates yet! You won't be disappointed!
