Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great(albeit chilly!) week at the cottage. We'd love to return again - but we'd probably plan to come in September next time. (The wood stove does heat things up nicely - it was just the overnigts that were very cool.) was a week of reading, painting, relaxing and mostly just staring at the ocean, watching lobster boats, seagulls, schools of fish and so on. It's a wonderful cottage - thanks so much! LC and DC from Massachusetts

My husband and I contracted to rent this cottage for a week beginning 6/2/12. The day after we arrived, I contacted the owner and extended our stay for 5 additional days! It was that cute! The cottage is right on the water with fantastic views across to Orr's and Bailey Islands. It's sweet and cozy and very comfortable. We had several days of rain while we visited...but didn't care because we were in such a beautiful spot. Our dogs (2 of them) give it 8 paws up .... and so do we.

Bob White and Nancy White,

Sept 29th--Oct 13th, 2007

Our two weeks in your special cottage by the sea gave us some history of your family, and your love of the area. I loved the sounds of the tides, the porch and its great vistas, and the wood stove! We had everything we needed while staying at your wonderful cottage and we hope to come back soon for other vacations. It is easy to fall in love with the Maine Coast while staying at the White's.

Thank you for your hospitality! It was a great vacation.

Our short time at the cottage was the best vacation that we have ever had! The sounds of the waves was so peaceful and the views are breathtaking. We had days that were foggy but even the fog couldn't dampen our spirits, it was just an incredible place. We will cherish those memories forever and we hope to return there again in the future.

We spent a wonderful and peaceful week at the White cottage. The Dolphine Chowder House was a great place to eat and meet some of the local people. We did a lot of traveling up and down the southern coast taking in the breathtaking views of the ocean and poking around in many little shops along the way. We will be getting married in June of 2006 and plan on returning to this cozy little cottage to spend our honeymoon. What a way to begin a marriage!
