About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

2 Person efficiency cottage in historic Harpswell. Saturday to Saturday rental only. Not shore front but is a short walk to a stone beach and a deep water mooring. Great for sailors who want to sail by day and have a home base at night.

Faces Harpswell Harbour and Bailey-Orrs Islands. New construction: tile shower, full kitchen, Queen size Murphy bed, large deck, faces wooded area between you and the shore. Quiet setting for a couple in need of a get away or a retired couple from the south who wants to spend a cool Summer in beautiful Maine. Close to Portland, Freeport (LL Bean) and Brunswick (summer theater). Keep your kayak at the bottom of the hill or rent one locally. Buy fresh lobsters off the dock less than a mile away.

Harpswell Heaven

  • 4 of 5

Less expensive than a motel, very intimate and private. Excellent bed and a short walk to Striper fishing several times a day. The refreshing ocean breeze is not available elsewhere at this price point. Owners Mary and Jack kept tabs on any needs we might have had and clued us in on local activities.

My husband and I just got back from an incredibly wonderful week at Henry's Hideaway! Jack and Mary were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. They really made us feel at home. Mary gave us a great suggestion for the perfect place to watch the sunset. Jack shared places we could kayak to for a great muffin and also to a dinner place. We had great conversations with both of them. They have been in the area for a long time and are happy to share their knowledge of the area with you. We loved being able to walk down the path to take our kayaks out on the cove. The cottage was very homey, comfortable and impeccably clean! It was more than big enough for the two of us. The full kitchen suited us well as we love to cook. Even though I had not expected it to be , the Murphy bed was very comfortable. We spent a lot of time on the deck reading , napping , watching the bald eagles, having a glass of wine. It was so peaceful. It's the most private place I've ever vacationed! We took full advantage of the great trails in Harpswell as well as all of the beautiful places to watch the sunset! We hope to stay for two weeks next year.

We spent 2 weeks in July at Henry's Hideaway and it couldn't have been any better. This cottage is the perfect size for a couple. Very quaint, comfortable and clean. Close enough to everything, yet private and 'away from it all'. Great, inexpensive seafood at Erica's Seafood with the best lobster prices in the area (we looked, believe me).

The only problem was that this vacation had to come to an end! We hope to return next year. Thanks for a terrific vacation!
