Lovely place to regenerate.
Clean and spacious. Clear instructions. Great solitude in rural area. Quiet. Effective communication w owners.
The house was very well kept. We had lots of room and the recent updates were great.
We had a great vacation. Weather was wonderful and this is a great location to come and go from. So much to do we couldn't fit it all in.
Peaceful spot surrounded by trees
The quiet, beautiful setting worked great for three generations in the area for a wedding. The house is clean and roomy.
Nice cottage on an attractive, private bit of land near Tenants Harbor.
Tenants Harbor is a lovely small coastal town with many great places to visit nearby.
Tenants Harbor is a lovely coastal village on the St George Peninsula. It is close to Martinsville and Drift Inn Beach, and Port Clyde which is located at the tip of the Peninsula where guests can visit marshall Point Light or hop on the ferry to Mohegan Island for a day trip. Our guests enjoy the privacy Balsam Cottage offers as well as its proximity to many nearby towns including Thomaston and Rockland. We are delighted that you enjoyed the area.
Better than expected
Home is tucked away in a peaceful forest setting just a minutes walk to the coast. Wrap around deck was perfect for morning coffee and evening star gazing. Multiple windows to let the sun in and cool breeze roll in. The sounds of bells from nearby lighthouses were very soothing with added relaxation.
Home was very spacious and very cozy.
Definitely within walking distance to general store and the happy clam restaurant in tenants harbor.
Highly recommend this home.
Special thank you to the owners for accommodating us!

There is nothing better than leaving a city and staying at a place like this quaint cottage. It was the perfect home base to go on day trips and come back to total quiet and calm. The house was clean and tidy and was the perfect place to stay. Also! In walking distance to a few places nearby including the General Store and East Wind Inn. Would come back in a flash!
Dear Molly: Thank you so much for your delightful review of The Balsam Lane Cottage! It was built by my parents this is where they stay when in the Harbor. It is large and comfortable so all of my sisters and families visit them there when traveling to Maine. My children have many fond memories of these visits. Regards, Linda
The center of the village of Tenants Harbor is a leisurely 10-minute stroll on a quiet road. There, a small grocery, library, post office, public landing and a few restaurants can be found. Enjoy a scenic drive, or bike the back roads through the small coastal communities. Be sure to bring your camera. Drift In public beach, Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum, and the ferry to Monhegan Island are a short drive away. Visit the Farnsworth Museum with its collection of Wyeth paintings in nearby Rockland, and The Owl's Head Transportation Museum on your way back. Balsam Cottage is a comfortable place to stay.
