Beautiful Cottage by the Sea
Clean and tidy well equipped cottage overlooking a tidal pool and the ocean. Private location half mile off main road. Its just around the corner from Camden Hills which offers incredible hiking and stunning views. Easy in to Camden for shopping and restaurants.
The cottage is fully equipped for meals at home. The beds are very comfortable. Windows and deck look out to the ocean and islands. The big masted schooners from Camden sail back and forth for your pleasure. This is the perfect spot for total relaxation. Hope you can enjoy it as much as I have, fall 2016.
This was a nightmare.
We booked in February and were paid in full in advance. I had spoken via email directly with the owner and received an email the morning of our week wishing us safe travel. We arrived and the owner's sister had let someone else in even though she knew my name and that we were expected. Saturday night in Maine at the height of summer tourist season with no place to stay is a terrible position to be put into. Homeaway offered no help when we called the customer service line and kept putting us on hold and not returning. No one cared and the last response from the owner was"Thank you for your business" to add insult to injury. The only reason I have any stars for this is because it was required.
First of all my humble apologies and I would like to thank you for your feedback. Both negative and positive feedback are always welcome. I strive to achieve Customer Satisfaction and tried my best to turned this into a positive experience by responding to this incidence ASAP. Recap of our phone conversations - I offered complementary stay at a similar oceanfront cottage for this time period &/OR a future rental at Penobscot Cottage OR pay for your overnight rental. All offers were refused. I also invested lots of time & phone calls to resolve this with you & thru HomeAway/VRBO. HoweAway/VRBO did reimburse you and you received a complete refund. I’m profusely sorry that this happened and I did care!!!
Going forward, in an effort to improve future customer's requests & inquires at Penobscot Cottage, I will be making future improvements to my reservation calendar to ensure that this situation will not happen in the future. Again, Please accept my apologies.
Relaxing Coastal Retreat
We loved our week at the cottage. Close (<2 miles) to the lovely town of Camden but felt a million miles away from everything.
So much to do in Camden and the area. Also, great food of all types. If we come back to Maine, this is the only place we'll look to book.
Cozy bay cottage
If you love the sound of the tides, and the feel of the breezes and peace and quiet, you will love this cottage! It is adorable and has everything you need, including a comfortable deck and screened porch to enjoy the sights and sounds. Plus, there are views of the bay from every room in the home, including the shower. The owner was very nice and provided helpful directions and suggestions. Lots to do in and around Camden/Rockland/Rockport and only an hour's drive to take a ferry to Monhegan Island or see the puffins (at the right time of the year). We also loved Pig & Poet, a nearby restaurant. We will definitely return!
A delightful escape!
My husband and I stayed in this cabin for 8 marvelous nights. The pictures don't do it justice…you are literally right above the water at high tide, and there is a path to the water's edge. Watching the birds, chipmunks, and red squirrels scamper among the fall foliage was a treat. The cottage was awesome; I felt I was getting a true "Maine camp" experience, and it was very, very CLEAN. It also looked loved, and taken care of….interesting things abounded in the cabin, and you had all the creature comforts of home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need. The shower was huge, with 2 shower heads, very hot water, AND, a porthole that gives you a view of Penobscot Bay as you shower! The best thing I can say is that it was just so "comfortable" that it was hard to leave to take day trips.
We loved our time at your cottage. And we look forward to staying there again. Very convenient to Camden and points up and down the coast. But also very secluded. I don't know how many times I missed the turn at night. The views were amazing and the location very peaceful. At night we would have a fire on the beach and watch the super blood full moon raise out of the east. One day it rained about 5" but we just laid around listening to the rain on the roof and watch the waves crash into the rocks. The cottage is perfect for a couple but as other reviews have noted it may not be the best for more people. We are already planning our next trip when we come up for your sons college graduation. Thanks again for letting us use your cottage Evelyn.
