About the property

Oceanfront Cottage w/ Full Kitchen And Bath/Awesome Views Of The Water/ Sleeps 2

Cozy Sunny Oceanfront Cottage on your own private point with 250ft of coastal frontage and unobstructed ocean views from each of the 8 windows in the living room. Experience peace and tranquility as you gaze at the golden sunset reflecting across the water. Enjoy the wonder of nature as you watch our local bald eagle, loons, Canada geese, ducks, deer, turkey and many local birds. Watch the lobsterman pull his traps, seagulls harvest their clams, and osprey dive for dinner….. or cast your own fishing pole off the rocks and fish for stripers … just steps from your front door. Nature's entertainment is constantly changing just outside your window. It’s no wonder that Maine nurtures so many artists and poets. Our beautiful surroundings are the inspiration for the poet to translate words into emotion and the artist to transform paint into a vision.

The cottage is 5 minutes from Brunswick which hosts an abundance of great restaurants, shops, cinemas, golf courses, museums, bike and walking paths, and the popular Maine Music Theatre. Smithsonian Magazine voted Brunswick as one of America’s best small towns in 2012. Maine’s largest city, historic Portland, is only 45 minutes away…..Although one would wonder why you would ever want to leave. So sit back, relax, and remember days gone by, when life was simpler and vacations were a time for rest, relaxation and renewal.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Occasionally you come across a place to stay that fulfills all your hopes for a enjoyable and restful time away. For my husband and myself, this was the place. The awesome views and the wildlife (eagles, herons, cormorants, sea gulls, sandpipers, seals, schools of fish, squirrels, chipmunks and a raccoon) kept us quite entertained. The cottage itself lacked nothing and was comfortable, cozy and perfectly arranged. We can't really say how much we enjoyed our time here and it was very difficult to leave!

Staying on someone else''s property could be challenging but Larry and Diane made us feel as if we were family come home. They are warm and welcoming and available if anything is needed.

We look forward to returning to this ideal escape!

Step back in time and into paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Situated on a very private piece of property that juts into the Casco bay this property is surrounded by jumping fish and a family of bald eagles. Our rental was exceptionally clean and well maintained and our host was super helpful helping us discover this very special part of the Maine coast. This is one of the best places we have ever found through HomeAway.

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

Can't really describe how much we loved our stay at this lovely cottage. The view is outstanding,the cabin itself is beautifully decorated and the hosts ,Larry and Diane, could not be any more welcoming and helpful. The location is convenient to many local attractions. Diane has compiled binders chocked full of helpful info on restaurants, attractions and trails. Both Diane and Larry were very generous with suggestions regarding things to do and places to see. Highly recommend Erica's Seafood and The Dolphin Restaurant-Delicious! The only thing I would change would be to stay longer. Sitting on the Adirondack chairs ,perfectly placed for an awesome view of the water, every morning and evening was an amazing way to start and end each day. Eagles,seals,squirrels geese, chipmuncks and heron are just a few of the species visible every day. If you want a peaceful,beautiful, fun vacation , consider The Cabin at the Point. Thank You Larry and Diane for the perfect getaway. You are wonderful hosts. We hope to return.

Peaceful Interlude Indeed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a full week (Aug 2017) at this most beautiful, peaceful and immaculate cottage. Everything inside and outside the cottage is so clean, comfortable and welcoming. We have made two new friends; owners Diane & Larry. They provided excellent food, hiking and other activity recommendations in well-organized binders. The cottage is located in such a nice area to travel to nearby attractions too (Freeport, Lewiston, Lisbon, Brunswick, Topsham, etc) . We are true nature-lovers and saw eagles, eider ducks, osprey, foxes, turkeys AND we caught 24 striped bass from shore (catch & release).!!! We WILL be back next year and cannot wait to visit our new friends again.

Thank you to Diane and Larry for sharing your wonderful , magical INTERLUDE. It truly is music for the soul.

Our property is an ideal location for a vacation in Maine. The best of what Maine has to offer can be enjoyed on day trips right from our front door….. Boothbay Harbor, Camden, Rockland, L.L. Bean, Portland, and each charming little coastal town all the way to the New Hampshire border.

Maine is comprised of over 3,000 miles of beautiful jagged coast line - full of peninsulas, little bays and inlets that are ideal for treasure hunting. The coast line is dotted with quaint little coastal towns for shopping & dining, historic light houses for calendar pictures and sandy beaches for exploring & sunbathing. We are located between the Southern Maine Coast and Mid Coast Maine, right outside the historical town of Brunswick. Our waterfront cottage is only 5 miles down the charming peninsula of Harpswell, so it doesn't take long to reach the main road that leads to all points north and south. (other cottages are located much farther toward the tip of a peninsula which makes for a long ride 'home' after a full day of sightseeing). Or many guests prefer to enjoy the solitude and natural surroundings of the Maine coast right here at our 'Little Cottage on the Point'.
