Osprey's Nest provides you with peace and quiet and is a perfect home-base for exploring Mid-Coast Maine. Osprey's Nest is the whole second floor of a two story house and has its own outside stairway entry. Relax and enjoy the views, watch the lobster boats and recreational boating, and coastal wildlife including seals, eagles and water birds. Launch your kayak directly from our yard. We have a number of islands that are fun for kayakers to explore, and the our waters are generally calm and perfect for kayaking.
Osprey's Nest is a spacious 2nd floor "home away from home" with a 10 by 25-foot deck right at the water's edge looking toward Hopkins Island and Dingley Cove and the picturesque Maine coast. Watch the tides come and go over the rocks below you. Bright and sunny....enjoy the beautiful sunrises; summer evenings are lazy and long and can be enjoyed from the deck or sofa. Original family artwork on the walls!
You enter into the kitchen and a generous eating area. There is a nice sized bathroom with stall shower. The bedroom has a quality queen-size bed. The spacious living room has a double-size sleeper (pull-out) sofa, and another sofa and a comfortable lounge chair.
Walk into Cundy's Harbor and buy your lobsters at Watson's General Store, which has been featured on TV, and have your dinner in the pot in minutes. Cundy's Harbor is a little gem. It is an unspoiled active fishing harbor and village. From late May to mid-september you can eat at the restaurant (byob) on the wharf. They offer all sorts of fish dinners/lunches, ice cream, etc. And there is a cute gift shop and general store to explore. Public boat ramp is two blocks away.
We are located right between the Portland/Casco Bay area just to our south and the Midcoast Maine area just to our north. Offers tons of day trip opportunities. Bath, Boothbay, Camden, Wiscassett, Portland, Freeport, etc, etc. Museums, hiking, beaches, antiquing, shopping, eating, exploring villages and seacoast.
PLEASE NOTE: Use of our linens and end-of-stay cleaning are optional. Those services are in your quote, but can be removed. Use of our sheets and towels is $25 for two people, $35 for four. Post-stay cleaning is $75 if you would rather not do the cleaning as described in our Rental Agreement. (Renters are asked to leave Osprey's Nest as clean as they found it unless they pay the cleaning fee.) During your inquiry, please let us know if you would like us to remove either of those fees.
We have a no pets policy. Additionally, Osprey's Nest is not appropriate for children.
There is a downstairs apartment that sleeps two and we own and rent the 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.
