Charming Woodsy Cottage - Ocean View with Monhegan Island

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

We welcome you to stay at our cottage in one of the most beautiful spots on the rocky, rugged Maine coast. We are set into the woods, up a hill, with wonderful ocean vistas. Take in the sounds and aroma of crashing surf. Observe the distant islands in the Gulf of Maine, including magnificent Monhegan Island. Watch lobster boats bring in their tasty catch.

The cottage is just a few steps from the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Nature Preserve. Other short walks (~1/2 mile) along the ocean will bring you to lovely Long Cove Point, or to New Harbor, an active fishing harbor with a lobster pound and restaurant, and the Hardy Boat cruises.

A 5 minute drive will get you to Pemaquid Beach-- a real gem in Midcoast Maine, or to the famed Pemaquid Point Lighthouse-- the scene of choice for the Maine quarter.

We invite you to enjoy a quiet, relaxing vacation, in the cool, summer sea breezes. We have no cable television, but we do offer a DVD player, music system, high speed internet, and many books.

First floor: kitchen, living room, sunporch, bedroom with twin bed, bathroom

About The Owner

My family has been vacationing in this spot for 50 years. My parents had rented this cottage for many years. When it came on the market in 1987, my husband and I bought it, and we continued a multigenerational tradition of family fun on the coast of Maine. It has been a magnet for our family and friends of all ages who just love it here.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1987

Why The Owner chose Chamberlain

Love this area!!! Maine's rugged coast is spectacularly beautiful. The perfect spot for a restful getaway.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is located in the village of Chamberlain on State Route 32, between New Harbor and Long Cove. Downeast Magazine has described this short stretch of road as 'quintessential Maine Coast'. A short walk will bring you to many fun activities. Walk over to the Salt Pond tidal pool just a few hundred yards south and sit on the rocks or take a cool dip in the 'pond'. Kids of all ages will have a blast! Walk a 1/4 mile further south to the working harbor, and eat a lobster or take a boat cruise. Or walk about 1/4 mile to the north to see Long Cove and the pleasure boats moored there. The pocket sandy beach at Long Cove is another great place for a dip or a float in the calm waters. It is also a nice landing for your kayak. Come back after your adventure and relax on the deck, hear the pounding surf and smell the fresh salt air, with miles of ocean view filling your eyes and your heart.

A photographer's delight!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most restful and beautiful location anyone would want for a vacation get-away! I've been coming to this cottage almost yearly for most of my adult life, have taken some if my best pictures around this area, and have recommended this cottage to so many delighted friends. My grown sons have brought their girl-friends to actually spend family time together; we all love having the freshly caught lobster right on the dock nearby, have breakfast on the deck gazing at the magnificent ocean view, and listen to the breeze and smell the ocean air. With the latest updates and renovations the owners have recently added, this spot is truly a gem!

My family has been renting this cottage for over 25 years. A summer is not complete until we spend at least a week here in Maine! This cottage is the perfect place to experience coastal Maine. The cottage is kept in great condition and is perfect to accommodate at least 5 people. The location is fabulous as it is right across the street from the ocean and you will wake up every morning to the sound of waves crashing in the distance! The cottage is also minutes away from the historic Pempaquid Point Lighthouse as well as the colonial Pemaquid Fort. My favorite part of all, being a huge fan of Maine lobster, is that you can walk right over to the local New Harbor lobster fisherman's co-op where the lobster is as fresh as can be!

Most Enjoyable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I always enjoy staying at the cottage. I love reading a book in the sun room listening to the ocean. Our favorite breakfast place is only a few minutes away at Seagull Shop at Pemaquid Point. You can sit in the sun and watch the waves crashing. Our favorite luncheon spot is within walking distance - good food and you can watch the fisherman bring in their lobsters. The beach is close if you're in the beach mood, and plenty of attractions to go see like a trip to Monhegan Island, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, and the Colonial Museum and Fort.
