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. If you are kayakers you can launch your kayak from our yard; we are in a well protected area with wonderful shores to explore..
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 upstairs apartment that sleeps 2-4 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 24126 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)
