About: Our family has summered at Seahaven cottage for over 100 years. We now live in many different parts of the United States. Seahaven cottage is where we can meet and enjoy one anothers company. We all love to travel, play sports and read. While we are at Seahaven, we love to swim in the pool and the ocean, kayak to nearby islands, walk on the beaches, play tennis, eat lobster at the dining hall, and visit with family and friends.

Why Harpswell, ME, USA:
We are the fifth generation to summer at the Auburn Colony resort. Seahaven Cottage was the summer home of our father and grandparents. Seahaven is spacious and welcoming. We enjoy the ocean breezes and views while relaxing in the sunroom and on the front porch.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Seahaven cottage is on a narrow peninsula that juts out into Casco Bay, home to the Calendar Islands. The surrounding ocean offers excellent opportunities for kayaking, beachcombing and exploring. Seahaven in located in Harpswell, Maine, which has the longest coastline of any town in the United States. Seahaven is part of the scenic Auburn Colony resort which includes a pool, playground, tennis court, beach, recreation hall, dining hall and open fields with ocean views on all three sides.
