Cozy cottage, well located and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

The owner represented his property very well. This is a great cottage which is well maintained, well located in Castine and fully equipped for a pleasant stay in a wonderful town. We would happily stay in this house again. The owner provided great detail on the house, its operation and left us great tips on things to do in Maine.

Lovely week in July

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I spent a week here last month. It's a lovely house, very bright and airy, with a nicely appointed kitchen, comfortable beds upstairs and down, and furniture much nicer than what you find in many vacation rentals. Was also very clean. The house is located on a side street just beyond the Maine Maritime Academy and is within walking distance of Castine's Main Street, and Perkins Street (waterfront) is also very close. Nice to have Internet connection in the house. All in all very pleasant and we hope to return.

Wonderful sisters getaway location

  • 5 of 5

For the last six years my sister and I have made an annual week long trip to stay at this cottage in Castine and we would not dream of staying anywhere else. It is always clean and fresh for our arrival and has every amenity we need including consistent wifi and two DVD players. In the late afternoon we enjoy walking down to the harbor to take in the lovely gardens, local architecture and scenic views. It truly feels like we are coming "home" when we walk through the doors and we spend the rest of the year looking forward to our return.

Ideal cottage for our July visit.

  • 5 of 5

We spent over 2 weeks in this lovely, craftsman style cottage. Easy walk to town dock, town green and other venues in the village of Castine. Lots of windows which allowed the predominately southwest breeze to blow through the house and kept us very comfortable. Although the house has two bedrooms and a bath upstairs, we were very comfortable using the first floor bedroom and bath during our stay. A love seat and bench on the enclosed front porch with windows was a pleasant place to sit and read during the day.

Castine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. It is very comfortable home furnished as a cottage get-away with everything you need to have for your vacation . We particularly enjoyed early mornings with coffee and a book on the screened porch! The town is very charming - history and architecture alone make the visit worthwhile. Take the owners advice and visit Carriers for lobster - we laughed with our flatlander guests as we learned to dismantle a lobster and rewarded ourselves with ice cream.

Nearest Airport
40 Miles
Car: recommended

Our bungalow cottage is located in the historic coastal village of Castine on the Blue Hill peninsula in the East Penobscot Bay Region of Maine. We are less than an hour to Bangor, Belfast, Searsport, Cape Rosier and Ellsworth and just over an hour to Stonington, Camden and Bar Harbor, the gateway to Acadia National Park. The town, on the National Register of Historic Places, is located at the confluence of the Bagaduce and Penobscot Rivers.

More than 100 historic markers can be found in the town characterized by its 18th century architecture. Major landmarks include Fort George, built by the British in 1779; Fort Madison, earthwork remnants built by the Americans in 1811, occupied by the British during the War of 1812 and reconstructed during the Civil War; and Dyce (Dice) Head Lighthouse built in 1829.

The year-round population is roughly 1,300 including 700 college students attending Maine Maritime Academy. The population at least doubles from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Other Activities: Kayaking
