Overview

About the property

Two bedroom, 1.5 baths, sleeps 4

Warm and inviting, this charming old cape on the coast of Maine has been beautifully renovated into a delightful mix of old and new! Formerly one large house, this cape has been beautifully renovated into two homes perfect for getaways where proximity is important, but privacy is equally important. Often rented together, they share a large yard and a boathouse on the water. There are separate parking areas; entrances are on opposite sides of the house and both sides tend to be quiet.

Arriving at the home you’ll note that it is across the street from the tiny village post office and there are two churches nearby. It will take you less than five minutes to walk to the Port Clyde General Store, Dip Net restaurant, Squid Ink Coffee and the Wyeth by Water Boat Tours. It will take the full five minutes if you stop to grab a cone as you pass by the Village Ice Cream.

Equipped with all the modern touches, you’ll have that feeling of getting away from it all without having to give up any comforts of home. The spacious great room with views of the harbor greets you immediately upon entering this home. This might be your first stop after you set down your luggage as the sights and sounds of the Maine coast are captivating. There is a comfortable sectional sofa for six and there are four cushioned armchairs. There is also a writing desk where you’ll happily pen notes home about how wonderful your adventures have been. There is also a flat screen television and a shelf with games and books. There have been many family movie nights and exciting games of cards and board games played here. It truly feels like home.

At the far end of the great room there is a wooden dining table for six. You have an interesting view no matter which direction you turn as this home was designed with a deep appreciation for Maine’s natural beauty. There are also light colored shades providing wonderful lighting throughout for the times when you want to enjoy some privacy without losing the warm glow of the sunshine.

You move next into the kitchen area, which was designed to maximize space. There are cabinets and hanging racks for pots and pans. There is a small dining or card table in this room and in addition to the standard kitchen amenities there is a microwave, standard and Keurig coffee makers and a blender. In the corner of the room is a stackable washer and dryer. And there is a half bath off the kitchen with a toilet and a sink.

Moving upstairs you have three bedrooms, with a captivating view from each. It will be hard to decide which is yours. Each has a lovely view and will lull you into a restful sleep as the tidal waters sing a soothing melody. The first of the bedrooms has a full sized bed, with an antique headboard, wall mounted lights, a dresser, and a closet.

Next door is a spacious bathroom with toilet, sink with mirror, a tub, shower, and storage for bath linens.

The third room is the master bedroom that has two twin beds that can be converted into a king size bed (with advance notice), a chaise lounge, two nightstands with lamps and a dresser. This room has a vaulted ceiling and a clear ocean view.

Outside, there is a large, shared lawn that expands down to the water's edge and an old boathouse with comfortable seating. After a day of exploring the local beach, visiting the two galleries, and picnicking at the Marshall Point Lighthouse, this private space is ideal for relaxing and reflecting on the excitement of the day. Enjoy a glass of wine and the sounds and sights of the ocean. During the day you’ll have lots of fun playing some of the games provided, such as ladder ball, bocce ball, lawn darts or bean bag toss, to name a few!

Area amenities: Being in the heart of Port Clyde you’ll enjoy great views all around, walk to the Village Ice Cream for dessert, the General Store for groceries or supplies, The Dip Net for an incredible meal, Squid Ink Coffee for your favorite pastry or brew, a tour of the Maine Wyeth Gallery, or an informative Wyeth by Water lobster boat tour! We truly have something for everyone! For your convenience there are three churches located in the Port Clyde area: Port Clyde Christian Church, Port Clyde Baptist Church and the Ridge Church, which offers Bible studies by appointment.

Provided for your convenience are initial supplies of the following: linens, bath towels, washcloths, hand towels and beach towels, your first tank of propane for the gas grill, dish soap, dish washing soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, basic cable, wireless internet and a home phone (long distance is not included). While we make every effort to assure the accuracy of this listing, as well as the condition of equipment and quality of provided services, we make no implied guarantee of connectivity for wireless internet, or services provided by a third party. That being said, we will do everything in our power to remedy any situation as quickly as possible, and we thank you for your understanding.

Here are some things people visiting Maine need to know in advance:

Cell phones: Although coverage is getting better, there are some places where cell phones don't get good reception. Chances are you will have service, but just in case, make sure you leave the number of the house you are renting with those who may need to get in touch with you. Coverage with AT&T can be spotty in many areas of Maine.

Weather: If you have heard it once, you've heard it a hundred times: if you don't like the weather in New England, wait a minute. It can be hot in Rockland and cool in Port Clyde so make sure to pack a variety of clothes — from a bathing suit to a sweater for cool evenings. Check out the current local weather at www.weather.com

Bugs : A lot of people ask us if we have mosquitoes...we sure do. But they aren't huge and they don't ruin a vacation. Bring some repellent, or pick some up at the local general stores and you will be fine; usually, you won't even notice them.

Dogs : We love dogs around here, but each town has their own rules about pets. Make sure to look for signs stating if dogs are allowed and always have them on a leash. And if they leave behind anything, please pick it up. Not a fun surprise when you are exploring the beautiful shoreline. You can also be fined for not picking up after your four-legged friend.

Raccoon's, and other annoyances: You probably have them too, but raccoon's can make you regret last night's lobster dinner. No one wants to pick up old, smelly shells that have been cast out onto the lawn by these cute, but curious and disastrously messy, little guys. So please don't put off placing the trash in the secure trashcans provided. You can find all of this information in the welcome book!

Water: Most coastal homes have wells that are hand dug. The water has been tested and is safe to drink, but some guests prefer bringing bottled water. Particulates, discoloration and iron taste are not uncommon.

As part of our rental application we do ask for two references from previous rental companies/agents/homeowners etc.

Dew Drop 2 is a Saturday to Saturday rental from June 1st – Sept 30th.

From Oct 1st – May 31st this property is available for seasonal rental with a monthly rate.

Long-term renters in our off-season are responsible for paying all utilities in addition to their lease amounts. We also require background check and references on all long-term guests.

Great, convenient location, beautiful view, very comfortably designed house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was our favorite so far, we will be back! The house is spacious, convenient, and comfortable: bathroom on each level, tub with shower, lots of windows throughout with shades, lovely water view and close to all stores in Port Clyde. The bedrooms are also spacious and well appointed, comfortable beds. The outdoor facilities are unique and think the fire pit was a nice touch, although we did not have the weather to need it. A quiet, peaceful place. Thanks!

Charming, very peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Dew Drop Cottage is a spacious, bright and well kept property, and very comfortable. The back yard offers a lovely view and it was a great space for our small dog to run around in. The kitchen is quite small but we were only a party of two so it was fine for us - we ate most of our meals over the week-long stay in the house, and it was very comfortable, with most of the amenities you would need provided. The little boat house is very basic but a nice option for a sunset drink, as are the outside deck chairs facing the water. For the elderly or mobility impaired, I would just note that there are stairs which are quite steep. The town itself is very small and charming; everything (the general store, two small galleries and a couple of dining options) is a few minutes by foot. Port Clyde is sweet and quiet; you do need to drive some distance to a larger town, but if you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is ideal.

Just a small note on the leaving instructions - it seemed a bit surprising and perhaps excessive to require exiting guests to vacuum/broom the house? Also, we couldn’t find a cutting board in the kitchen and thought that might be helpful.

Owner's Response: Andrew, I am so happy you have enjoyed your stay! I also love Port Clyde and its village! As of now we, unlike many do not charge a $200.00 plus cleaning fee per week. In order to keep that down for our guest, we ask that our guest leave the house "broom clean" by sweeping the floor or vacuuming any excess debris. Thank you for making me aware the house needs a cutting board and for taking such good care of the cottage! Veronika

Time flies in this charming cottage....

  • 5 of 5

A lovely LLBean rental with updated amenities in the kitchen, nice towels, and cotton bedding. Great location with water views. Perfect for my husband and I. The property manager - Veronica, is super and available if renters have questions. For example, we had a question about channels on the TV and she communicated immediately. As the title indicates- time flies in this quaint Maine cottage. Hope to go again - which really says it all!

Another Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were here last September, and over the winter, I couldn't wait to return. We arrived just in time for lupine season, and as beautiful as Maine is in the fall, it is also incredibly beautiful in the summertime, wildflowers everywhere!

The cottage was outstanding! Since last stay, there was new Cuisinart cookware in the kitchen, and also a new fire table near the water next to the boathouse - perfect for watching the lobster boats in the evenings. In fact we enjoyed it so much that I bought one for my patio once I returned home. The house is large and stunningly beautiful, and the view I think is the prettiest in all of Port Clyde, and nearly all of Maine. I love the village feel, you can walk to churches, playground (next door), the Marshall Point (Forrest Gump) light house, and also, I highly recommend a walk down nearby Horse Point Road. The house itself is meticulously cared for, flower boxes under the windows, extremely bright, neat, and clean - just perfect. Its the kind of place you absolutely hate to leave!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, open, spacious. I’m sure it was the most scenic view in all of beautiful Port Clyde. I’m a photographer and caught stunning views of sunsets, the Milky Way core, and lobster boats all right from the yard. The kitchen is a bit small, but was just fine for simple meals. Loved having the General Store just a short walk away. I SO enjoyed my stay, I absolutely hated to leave.

If anything was wrong, i would say so. I have nothing to say except -I shall Return.

  • 5 of 5

Great location -sunshine- views- screens to let air in. the second floor bathroom set-up, going down stairs 3 steps, is unique. I like it. Like so many of the Port Clyde homes, there is no air conditioner. If there was, we sure never needed it. Used the heat a little in the evening at times, and warmed up right away. Just about the best home-awayfrom home I ever saw.
