About Owners/ Property Managers: Jerry and Renee LiaBraaten

Jerry is from Virginia, MN and Renee is from St. Clair, MI. We grew up vacationing and boating on the majestic Great Lakes and many beautiful inland lakes in our home states. We fell in love with mid-coast Maine on our first visit to Camden in 1990, partly because it reminded us so much of Michigan and Minnesota, with the added allure and beauty of the ocean. We spent the next seven years searching for the perfect spot to build a get away for our family. As the years went by, it became increasingly difficult to leave the Maine cottage when our vacation was over, so we relocated to Maine in 2003. Each morning, as we watch the sun rise over the bay, we feel like it truly is 'just another day in paradise!'

Owners/ Property Managers: Jerry and Renee LiaBraaten purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Owners/ Property Managers: Jerry and Renee LiaBraaten chose Lincolnville

The view from our cottage gives you a snapshot of quintessential coastal Maine! Be sure to bring your camera! There is an ocean view from every room--and a panoramic view from the screened-in porch. It is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the pristine beauty of Maine and to explore the many nearby enchanting coastal towns and lighthouses. Our location also has the unique feature of being the place along the coast 'where the mountains meet the sea.' We never get over the thrill of discovering incredible views on hikes or drives into the forested hills surrounding our cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

There is a fabulous 800-foot sand bar when the tide is out which creates a wonderful place for beach combing for adults, playing in the sand for children and running for dogs. The sound of the tide coming in or going out is very relaxing and creates a wonderful setting for naps or reading on the screened-in porch. The porch is high above the water and is a perfect spot for watching eagles, loons, seagulls, ducks and osprey, lobsterman hauling in their traps and schooners sailing in the bay. The sunrises are spectacular in the morning and the starry night sky will take your breath away!

The sunrises over the ocean in front of the cottage are breathtaking. The stars at night are absolutely AMAZING!!! This spring (2014) we have spotted 11 eagles of various ages, so it will be a fun summer to watch the babies and teenagers mature.

We loved staying here. The house is in a very quiet location, yet still close to town. Anything you need for a perfect stay is here. We highly recommend this oceanfront cottage. We're looking forward to going back next year.

A True Maine Experience

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was a fantastic experience! It has everything you could possibly want. The decor is perfect everywhere you look. The owners are quick to respond to your calls or texts. We so appreciate the cottage being pet friendly. A sturdy gate was provided to block the spiral stairs. Our dog could not handle the stairs, but the gate kept her confined to the main level. Having a bathroom on every level is a big plus. We throughly enjoyed the beautiful fireplace; wood and kindling provided. Three of our group plays piano and enjoyed the beautiful grand piano in the living area. Great restaurants nearby. In fact our best meal of the trip was at the Whale's Tooth Pub. Thank you Jerry and Renee for providing such a beautiful home!

Two men and a little dog.

  • 5 of 5

This was our forth summer renting in Mid-coast Maine and so far the best equipped house we have found available for rent. Though the others all have offered peace, quiet refuge and Maine's particular change of pace from city life, this one also offered us all the conveniences of home. It included rather extraordinarily: coffee filters, sharp knives and an abundance of the sort of household items one needs in a home away from home. We needed to bring only our own clothes and food. Just remarkable hospitality from the owners.

Perfect vacation spot -- NEVER a disappointment!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to "Paradise"! We have truly been spoiled for any other vacation spot. "Cottage" does not portray this spacious and open, yet cozy, home. There is everything you would possibly need. The screened-in porch, which extends the entire length of the house, is the perfect place to enjoy your views while enjoying your coffee and breakfast, or reading a book to the tranquil sounds of the ocean and wildlife. The views are spectacular. Sunrises are majestic. The location is perfect for sightseeing - an hour in each direction can fulfill your needs for viewing lighthouses, experiencing great food spots and enjoying the ever-perfect Maine scenery! For those who want to venture further, and need a taste of the "city life", Portland is a bit shy of 2 hours, but worth spending the day there! Nearby are wineries, picture-perfect harbors, shopping and - most important - restaurants (some only 1/2 mile down the road!). Each time we go we discover new places to delight us! We look forward to our next visit to this perfect vacation spot!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home and absolutely loved it! There is a wonderful screened in back porch overlooking the bay and perfect for enjoying the cool breezes. The location was great. We had day trips to Acadia National Park, Freeport for LL Bean, Bangor, etc. There are some great places to eat nearby as well. Our family made some great memories here and we plan to return. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone seeking a relaxing time on the beautiful coast of Maine!

Located just 5 miles north of post-card perfect Camden, there is no end to the pleasures that await you in this enchanting custom designed 3,000 square foot cottage with detailed woodwork and hardwood floors/ceramic tile throughout. The main floor includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, full bath, and great room complete with stone fireplace and baby grand piano. A spiral staircase winds to a cathedral ceilinged TV loft/library with window seat (ideal writer's retreat!)and master bedroom suite with private bath, whirlpool tub, and enclosed balcony overlooking the ocean. The lower level, also accessed by the spiral staircase, includes an inviting guest bedroom with queen-size bed, a cozy gallery, laundry room, bath and sauna. Both the loft and great room are complimented with queen size sleeper sofas.

You'll savor breathtaking ocean views from every room! French doors on the main level open to a 320 square foot screened-in porch and a meandering path down to 115 feet of ocean frontage. Wake up to stunning sunrises over Penobscot Bay and fall asleep to the sound of waves washing ashore. Spend the day on the deck, relaxing in the hammock, or exploring the beach while watching windjammers sail by, lobster boats making their rounds, and gulls, osprey, loons and eagles circling overhead. Or, hike to Mt. Battie for panoramic views, experience the quaint shops, antique and art galleries and unique restaurants in Lincolnville Beach and Camden, travel by ferry to explore the nearby islands or take a day trip to Acadia National Park. In the evening, feast on lobster, curl up by the fire, unwind in the sauna and cool off on the screened-in porch under a canopy of brilliant stars.
