Hilltop Cottage Above Seaside Village Of Port Clyde
average rating of 4.6 based on 5 reviews

A wonderful spot, clean and comfy cottage, extremely well managed.

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had! Best weather we ever had on a Maine vacation and the cottage was just right. We've rented in Port Clyde a few times before and love it there. The cottage was the most comfortable we have rented anywhere. Very well equipped, charming decor, REALLY comfortable beds, and clean as a whistle. The washer wasn't working so we emailed Veronika. She responded instantly, set us up to use the washer and dryer at the neighboring cottage, and had the washer fixed in no time. Everyone was very nice. My only suggestion would be an awning or umbrella on the back deck as it was so sunny:). We hope to come back next year! Thanks for a lovely week!

Older home, mostly updated

  • 3 of 5

Good location, walk to Port, drive to numerous towns. Besides Monhegan Ferry not much to do in Port Clyde, General Store there terrible service and most staff, although they try, don't speak English. Home is updated w/beautiful kitchen and good size bedrooms but baths are near impossible to mediate hot/cold water, yard is nice but no landscaping or fence. New gas grill was nice. Overall it's worth the $ but the faucet sitch needs to be addressed for a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us! I am so happy that you enjoyed the home as much as we do! Making sure to keep the charm of a 200 year old home on the coast can have it's challenges but we find almost all of our guests love the unlandscaped view which is rocky and wild, much like the ocean. The front and sides of the home are of course kept up with landscaping, but we've never had a fence there. For future visits, if the activities and events in the welcome book are not what you are looking for I am more than happy to make additional suggestions! I live local so I'm always just a call away. We look forward to your next visit!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to lighthouse, beach, town, ferry but still quiet and serene. Splendid back deck to watch sunset over field, trees, and harbor in distance. For birders - paradise! Woke to songs of phoebes, parula, black-throated green warbler, and many others. Clean and cozy home, lovely porch room for breakfast and coffee. And our dog loved it all too!!

Perfect spot for family

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly located, has a distant water view, was very clean and the management company was responsive to even minor requests. I stayed there 4 weeks and was very pleased with it. Perfect for 6 people with an extra room for someone to get away from any TV watchers, a small front yard for outdoor play with children. Am considering renting it again next year.

A recent visitor from Vermont

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from an unforgettable week in Port Clyde staying at Frances House. Renting the cottage was a friendly, quick, and efficient experience. We arrived to a spotlessly clean cottage with charming details throughout with everything we needed including a well appointed kitchen that sported a slate sink and an antique Glenwood gas cook stove that was an absolute dream to cook on. Along with all these period details, the cottage had full internet service and excellent cellphone reception! The house sits on a hill overlooking a field of wildflowers and wild blueberry bushes beyond which one gets a view of the sea and nearby islands. And there was always a breeze. Perfectly located, we were in easy in walking distance to everything in Port Clyde including ice cream, the dock, fresh fish, groceries from the general store, restaurants, galleries, and a post office to send postcards from. It is just over a mile walk to Marshall Point Lighthouse and museum. And yet, with all this access, Frances House was amazingly private-feeling. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and look forward to visiting again soon!
