Property description

Leave the stresses of everyday life behind and enjoy a relaxing vacation along the beautiful Maine coast, where the slogan 'The way life should be' holds true.

This hidden treasure located at the end of a peninsula, offers views of scenic harbors and spectacular sunsets. Wake to the sound of passing lobster boats, sip beverages on the deck overlooking the shore, and enjoy the fresh, cool summer breezes.

This 625 square foot guest cottage is located on the lower level of a family home. It is totally self-contained and has private entrances. The original structure was an addition to this charming 1927 summer home about 50 years ago and recently has been refurbished to include all the modern conveniences.

This cozy get away is economically priced and affords all the luxuries of a private rental. Comfortably sleeping 2 adults, a second all-purpose room contains a convertible couch for children or overnight guests, a full kitchen and dining section, and a living area with spectacular views.

Whether you are interested in dabbling in Maine's history, visiting lighthouses, taking excursions, or just enjoying the shore and eating lobster, this is the place for you. So sit back, relax, and remember days gone by, when life was simpler and vacations were a time for relaxation and renewal.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: As a child this beautiful Maine home was owned by my grandparents. Grandpa built a separate unit, which is now what we refer to as our bungalow, so that all of his grandchildren and their families could enjoy the vacation home and he and Grandma could still keep their sanity! Growing up in this house made it a part of me, the sights and smells of the ocean, and the memories attached to them. So, in 2008, when the second generation needed to sell it, my husband and I bought it in order to maintain the family traditions. The grandchildren are all grown now, some with grandchildren of their own but the traditions will carry on. We hope you can make some memories too, and enjoy this beautiful spot just as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You can have as much privacy as you want or you can visit with the others who are living in the main house or renting the other guest cottage.
