About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Relax on the coast of Maine at our charming cottage on Stovers Point in Harpswell. Walk to the nearby pebbly/sand beach at Stovers Point Preserve on the western shore of Harpswell Sound; explore the Sound and nearby Orrs and Bailey Islands by kayak; take a nature cruise with Casco Bay Lines from Cooks Restaurant on Bailey Island; explore South Harpswell and Potts Point; or visit Brunswick, Freeport, Bath - and beyond - for shopping, dining, sports and various cultural activities.

At the end of the day, enjoy cocktails and dinner (lobster from one of several nearby lobstermen) on the ample deck while savoring the scent of salt air and seaspray roses and the peacefulness of sundown at Stovers Point.

Our cottage is the perfect retreat for couples and small families seeking a quiet place to relax and enjoy the "real" coast of Maine, away from the hustle-bustle, yet a short distance from shopping, dining, entertainment, beaches and Maine attractions and sights.

Our cottage is cozy and comfortable. The main floor is open concept and includes a dining area (with gate-leg table and seating for six); living room with love seat and sofa, TV, DVD & free WiFi, board games for our guests to enjoy; a fully-equipped kitchen with gas stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and everything you'll need to prepare your meals at home; and a bathroom with shower unit, sink, toilet and stacked washer/dryer. Upstairs you will find a cozy sitting area with a love seat, perfect for reading or playing board games, and two comfortable bedrooms.

Sleeping arrangements include:

Bedroom 1: Queen bed - new bed/mattress;

Bedroom 2: Daybed with trundle which can be configured as one twin, two twins or a queen.

Other: Pull-out full-sized sleeper sofa on main level; pull-out love seat (twin) in upstairs sitting area.

We had grand plans of using this as a base from which to also enjoy days out at Arcadia and the White a Mountains. We got as far as Portland but were very happy to return from the urban to Harpswell and this idyllic spot. One day the mist came rolling in so we put on rain coats instead of swimming costumes and beach combed for sea glass and shells. Other days we were in the sea and had to share the beach with three other families - it's a hidden gem. Amazing cafe nearby at the Old School House and opposite at the Fruit Corner they are making all sorts of treats. We have two small children and this place could not have housed us any better. Thanks. If we were not in the U.S. for only two years then we'd be heading straight back but we feel the need to see further afield. Hope we don't wish we'd stayed closer to home.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our little family loved our stay in Harpswell! The cottage is cute, clean, and well-appointed...and its owners left plenty of helpful information about the area, including a recommendation for Erica's Seafood...which we loved so much, we visited twice! The cottage location is excellent, just steps from a sweet little beach where our daughters had fun searching for crabs and picking up seashells. We also loved the nearby school's excellent playground, where they spent several hours playing with new friends. It was a super place to visit, and a super place to stay. The owner, Lisa, couldn't have been more open or helpful. Thank you so much!!! We hope to visit again soon.

Adorable Coastal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the accuracy of the description of this cottage including photos. When we arrived, the property and cottage itself was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very helpful and pleasant with information both through emails and phone calls. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property rental. We enjoyed walking to Stover's Cove Preservation Beach every day and viewing the beautiful surroundings. Because of the nice location of this cottage, there were many points of interests that were very easy to access by car. Wonderful stay and vacation in Maine!!

Cozy and Peaceful Cottage by the Water.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for two weeks. The cottage was very clean and cozy, all the amenities, big deck overlooking water, walking distance to the Stover's Cove Bay, very peaceful and a short driving distance to Andrea's Lobster Shack and the Dolphin Marina. I left it as clean as I found it and it was a pleasure to do so as the landlords made every effort to make it like home. We look forward to going back again.
