About Janet Collins-Haffey
During the school year I teach at a special needs school in Boston. My daughters are grown and continue to come back every summer. I ove to garden and have veggies growing in the backyard. The bird feeders are kept full for my enjoyment. I love to antique, head to the beach and kayak. Early morning walks to view sunrise is a daily event.
Janet Collins-Haffey purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Janet Collins-Haffey chose Pemaquid Point
My neighbor sold this property to us when she could no longer make the drive up from Florida.She liked to garden and knew I was in love with her beach roses....the scent just heaven.
What makes this Cottage unique
My raspberry patch in the back yard brings such joy. I love picking the raspberries and eating them early in the morning. The fireplace throws lots of heat and the outdoor shower was a must with little children.

Quaint and comfortable
Loved the location. Enjoyed the screened in porch and the bench by the bay.
A charming place with some limitations
This older cottage has many charms but the kitchen and bath are not some of them. I found the kitchen depressing to be in and cook in. Hearing and seeing the partial ocean view from the cottage was wonderful! The interior space is nice, cozy, and filled with interesting books and collections. The deck and screened in porch are very nice too! The owner is a generous and helpful person! The location is very nice!
Quintessential Coastal Maine Cottage!
It's hard to believe this is a rental property. From the time you step through the door you feel like you've arrived at your own personal vacation home. From the vintage knickknacks, large assortment of books, and current magazines including DownEast, this charming cottage is both warm and welcoming. Nice little surprises like a basket of packaged nuts and granola bars only served to enhance the feeling that your host was genuinely concerned about your comfort and wellbeing. The large screened porch offers a serene location to enjoy a cocktail or or a good book while staying out of any rain or direct sun.
If you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy the Maine coast... look no further!
Comfortable, warm, inviting home with wonderful books!
Everything we looked for; comfortable beds, a perfect kitchen, stones throw from the water and just off the road from everywhere we needed to be for a June wedding we were attending. A memorable Maine nest, full of history books and paintings, felt like home.
LOCATION IS WONDERFUL!
Although location is key, I am also an anal person when it comes to cleanliness. I had to clean, clean, before I would even unload all of my belongings. It wasnt horrible, dont get me wrong, but some things need to be updated. The tub alone needs to be replaced. I cleaned and left the home cleaner than when I found it. Again...thats just me.
Would I go back? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes.
I would like to say Thank You to Janet for opening your home to us, as we gathered for a home cooked meal on Friday with all 4 of our children and their other halves, and our English Mastiff to say farewell to one of our sons, as he will be deploying with the Navy. Great opportunity for all of us to be together. Thank you again. It was comfortable and close to Pemaquid. Great opportuniy to let our puppy relax on the rocks.
Note: No WiFi or Television
Very cozy spot with a great location near the water. Very rural area so it is easy to unplug. The cottage has everything you need to unwind and relax.
