About Denise or Bruce Tailby
We bought this as a shell and finished the cottage. We have spent summers and school vacations here, but with our children grown, we are renting the cottage. Denise does most of the rental management. Bruce gets all the credit for making the Blue Door Cottage the cozy cottage it has become.
Denise or Bruce Tailby purchased this Cabin in 1987
Why Denise or Bruce Tailby chose Hope
Secluded and private, neighbors are visible but not right next door. 1 1/4 acres provides ample trees for the many birds. Proximity to Camden is nice. Close enough to shop in the evening as stores are open till 9. Free concerts some evenings in Camden.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love hearing the loons on Lermond pond. The get- away- from- it- all feeling and doing without A/C, cable, wifi and doing the rustic thing always appealed to us. Now cell phones have changed that a bit, but the phone reception at the cottage is poor, so maybe you will still experience the feeling. Or the frustration of not being able to connect! We use the Camden Library for internet for our wi-fi fix.

Great experience and communication, highly recommend
Our family enjoyed our stay at this property. We enjoyed the quiet environment and the peaceful pond nearby. Our daughter loved the canoe and making a fire in the firepit outside. The bedrooms were a bit smaller than expected and one of the beds was much more comfortable than the other. Our son had to sleep in his pack and play in the living room due to space. Fans were provided, but no a/c here and it was unusually warm during our stay. Due to the wooded area, the floors could have been cleaner upon arrival but we kept our shoes on in the house. There were only 4 bath towels and no washcloths/hand towels. Overall a good stay!
Our Maine Visit
My husband and I fell in love with the cabin and the area. Having the canoe there was a great plus. The owners were extremely gracious and truly wanted you to be comfortable.
We would love to stay there again.
It is so nice to hear your words of appreciation. You were perfect guests and we hope you can return.
The cabin was relaxing, pleasant.. having waterfront views was an added bonus! Sat on the dock every morning/evening.. it was a perfect vacation.
The perfect getaway
It was so cute and comfortable with just the right amount of room. Loved the canoeing equipment that we could use on the lake. So peaceful this time of year.
We were extremely happy with our stay. The cottage is cozy, clean and well-equipped. We were there in mid-October and it was very quiet and peaceful. Several grocery stores are available within ten or so minutes drive, and you're only about 20 minutes from Camden. We had no complaints. As other commenters have mentioned, the oven is not working, so you may want to take that into account. But we were happy.
