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. No internet, no wifi, limited cell phone reception, no tv.

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!

*Waterman's Beach lobster shack is closed and at the moment does not have any plans of reopening. But they are planning on opening a micro brewery but I do not know when. According to the paper they are planning on being open 3 days a week, offering tastings only, and not serving food. *There are two cottages on Sea St. We own both and do not rent the other one because it is not finished. If we come up we stay there.

A Great Getaway offering a chance to unwind and enjoy the beautiful Maine scenery.

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage. The view was tremendous & we never tired of watching the light change on the water throughout the day. It was a restful getaway, which was exactly what we'd hoped to find.

This is a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at this cozy little cottage. The location is fantastic. The owners were gracious and accommodating. It has a feeling of remoteness, but it's a short drive away from downtown Rockland, which has great shopping and dining. We plan to return. 😊

Too beautiful for words

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable for three adults. Nicely decorated and well furnished for everyday living. Most days spent on the porch or the small, rocky beach steps further. Artsy towns of Rockland, Rockport and Camden just a short drive away. Stop in for a fish sandwich at the Keag (gig) store and corned beef breakfast in Spruce Head. Don't bring too many books. The view eats up all your reading time! One complaint - broken ice cube tray.

More beautiful than the photos.Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We found this cottage looking for a place at the ocean that would welcome our greyhound Miles. Susanne and Michael were very welcoming. Thank you. The cottage was perfect, very clean, comfortable and well equipped with anything we would need. The sunrises were spectacular!! We saw a bald eagle from our deck where we spent much time being mindful of all the beauty around. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats setting and pulling traps into the evening. It is so beautiful here that we truly rested leaving behind the pace of the city. We loved getting unplugged for a week and will definitely come back. Thank you Susanne and Michael.

Great place to relax and enjoy a wonderful view!

What a great location: quiet relaxation at the property, but exciting port cities nearby. Kochi, our Australian Shepherd just loved the beach. There aren't many places where dogs can run themselves silly on a beach.
