Perfect location to relax for us.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quiet spot to relax and reconnect. From the moment we pulled into the driveway we were in love. The cottage was the perfect size for me and my husband. It was extremely quiet and peaceful. A hammock and table with Umbrella were on the deck along with a gas grill and Adirondack chairs. The place was very clean and had everything we could possibly need for our stay including bed linens, towels, and everything to cook or even clean. Jack and Mary were amazing and very quickly responded when we had a request for a lobster pot, Mary was there in minutes. There are some great places to eat or buy lobsters off of the boats in one of the places that say live lobster. Amazing prices as well.

I was worried about the Murphy bed because of my bad back but I was pleasantly surprised. My back was still sore as it is on my own brand new bed at home, but, it was nothing that my normal routine of stretching and a warm shower didn't take care of.

There is a rock and shell beach a short walk down the hill. I would recommend water shoes. The beach area is only available during low tide and you can walk to a sandy area as well.

We sailed on the Arc II which is the owners boat, we had never been sailing so this was a wonderful surprise for my husband's birthday. It was amazing and my husband even drove the boat. Well worth it.. Thank you Jack and Mary for sharing your lovely cottage with us.

A great Maine getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Henry's Hide a Way. It is at the end of the road and very private and clean. We enjoyed listening and watching the many birds around the home. The owners are nearby and were very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

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!
