About Susanne

Never enough time to spend in Maine!

Susanne purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Susanne chose Mid-Coast & Islands

There is so much to do or you can do nothing at all but just enjoy the air, the view.

What makes this cottage unique

We love this area of Maine, it's the real Maine. Not too touristy, but enough to keep you busy on a rainy day. It’s a place that you can be as busy as you want or just hang out on the deck and watch the boats, or kayak and explore the islands. It’s a short day trip to Mohegan or Arcadia.

Simplicity, rest, and peace are what we feel when we are here. There is nothing like a night’s sleep in Maine and that first cup of coffee the next morning on the deck. The sunrises and the sunsets are spectacular! Yachts and Lobster Boats, Osprey and seals, all in the same view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We’re just back in Vermont after a really wonderful stay in your little cottage. It could not have been more perfect! 7 days of perfect weather didn’t hurt – but the place and setting were exactly what we were hoping for. Your pictures and information all set our expectations right where they should be – not always the case.

Thanks again for sharing your sweet little place with us!

Absolutely beautiful property, the perfect peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! It is the perfect little spot, not too far from the hustle and bustle of Rockport and Camden but still secluded and peaceful. There is a beautiful rocky beach in front of the cottage, nice view of the islands and you don't hear a single thing at night except for the crickets and occasional boats! It was really great. Oh, and so many stars!

Rain or Shine Maine is Fine!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our weekend get away to this cozy cottage despite our rainy weekend! Loved all the lobster and beach themed décor. The location was amazing and we loved watching the birds dive down and do their own "fishing". We look forward to going back in better weather. You won't be disappointed!

The location was amazing. All we hoped for!

Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. The cottage was very cute & cozy. Explored the other neighboring communities and thought the Keag store and Rockland were great. Hope to return soon.

Fantastic location

Spent 5 nights here in October. Loved the location - great to use the fire pit while staring at the sea. House itself is warm and cosy.

Heaven, heaven, heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot thank Susanne enough! This property was just AMAZING! From the captains couch, lobster theme, fire pit, comfy bed, and amazing private beach, you were able to experience everything that Maine has to offer. We loved being able to order Lobster dinners from the Keog "gig" and relax on the patio under the maple tree with our pup. Thank you so much Susanne!!

I HIGHLY recommend this rental to anyone interested. I know we will definitely be back!

Comfy Cozy Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year back at the cottage, we just can't get enough! We think everything is just perfect -- location, views, size, very sweet and amazing host, cleanliness -- it has it all.

To us, this cottage represents the essence of Maine - homey, welcoming, and relaxing.

It's wonderful to wake up to the sounds of the lobster boats and waves in a comfy bed with a view of the water.

The cottage itself is well-kept and neat and has everything you would need. Susanne has thought of everything in advance - including every lobster tool necessity!!

The beach at the cottage is perfect for strolling up and down -- much of Maine's coast is extremely rocky and therefore, the beach is inaccessible even from properties on the water. Not here! Parts of the beach are sand and the others are rocks small enough to easily walk on. We spend hours just chilling outside staring at the beautiful views and watching nature or looking for pretty mussel shells. The beach really is on its own natural cove, making it very private and secluded-feeling.

We are eternally thankful that she welcomes pets, too.

And it is in the perfect location for exploring mid-Coast Maine. It's an easy layup to Rockland with its amazing dining or to Camden, Rockport, or Belfast. It's a breezy 45 min drive to Red's Eats or the nearby McLoon's, which is only 5 mins away and open late into the season. We find it really convenient for necessities too -- there's the Keag or two big supermarkets in Rockland along with Walmart as well.

In the end, though, it really does come down to a sweet cottage on an amazing part of the land (and sea!) with a wonderful host.

Congrats, Susanne -- hope to see you for year five!
