About the property

Beautifully Appointed & Fresh From a Thoughtful Renovation, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Sea Star Cottage offers the best of both worlds – a classic shingle style cottage with all of the vintage charm you’d hope to find for your Maine seaside getaway, yet completely fresh from a meticulous and thoughtful renovation.

Every inch of Sea Star cottage has been designed with an eye to maintaining the cottage's charm and authenticity. Fresh white planked walls, warm wood floors, cozy kitchen, sweet bedrooms, charming bathrooms, and a large back deck are evocative of a bygone era where kids spend summer nights chasing fireflies and families start and continue traditions that are passed down to future generations.

Luxury amenities such as high-speed WiFi, cable, a large flat screen television, high-end bedding and bath textiles, and an eclectic mix of antiques and modern furnishings provide the utmost in comfort and relaxation.

In short: you will want for nothing during your vacation.

Sea Star Cottage is ideally situated on picturesque Marshall Point Rd – just down the street from the charming Black Harpoon bar and restaurant, and a short stroll to the Marshall Point Lighthouse, as well as Port Clyde harbor with its ice cream shop, Port Clyde Fresh Catch seafood shop, General Store, restaurants, gift shops, and the ferry to and from Monhegan Island. Also within walking distance is Drift Inn Beach, the area’s only sandy beach, and the perfect spot for families to relax and play, as well as the village playground and basketball courts.

At Sea Star Cottage, families can literally walk or bike to everything they need during their vacation, making it the perfect spot for those with older children who might want to walk to town for ice cream or freshly baked doughnuts in the morning.

Inside, find 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, kitchen, dining nook, and laundry room.

The living room is beautifully furnished with a large chaise sofa – perfect for cuddling up with the family to watch a movie – a large flat screen television, cable, DVD player, and plenty of games and movies to pass the time.

Chefs will be delighted by the freshly remodeled kitchen with gas range, outdoor BBQ, and generous supply of cookware, kitchen tools, dishes, etc. The kitchen has a breakfast table that can seat 4. The dining nook seats 8 comfortably, and the back deck has a large picnic table for casual entertaining on warm summer nights.

Off of the kitchen, is the first bedroom with a queen size bed.

Also downstairs is a full bathroom with shower, and a large laundry room.

Upstairs are three bedrooms. One with three twin beds, one with two twin beds, and one with a queen size bed. Also upstairs is a full bathroom with a bathtub.

Great Stay in Port Clyde

  • 5 of 5

Gwen's cottage is cute, comfortable and cozy. The location is wonderful- walking distance to the waterfront/town, lighthouse, and the Black Harpoon is only a few steps way with great food and friendly staff. The beds were very comfortable, backyard peaceful, decor charming, and all was very clean. Our only advice is that if you come after September most of the recommended restaurants in the binder are closed! That being said we had no trouble striking out on our own and finding excellent offerings. We had a memorable stay in Port Clyde and hope to return in the near future!

Fantastic Property

Charming home, first class amenities, close to the Port Clyde attractions. Cooking fresh caught lobsters on the deck was a great addition!

Amazing property all around. Very well kept beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property within walking distance from drift Inn beach and from Marshall Point lighthouse. Great place for little kids too. We found a new adventure for them everyday. The house was exceptionally clean and well appointed. It's the little things like a beautiful and functional kitchen and really nice cutlery. The owners are very attentive to any needs and care that you have a great visit. I Would highly recommend this place.

Immaculate treasure

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was immaculate and had all the amenities that made our week stay and absolute delight. There was plenty of room for the 7 of us to sleep comfortably. We cooked most meals at the cottage, including a lobster fest-everything we needed was there. The location was perfect-a short walk to the beach, the lighthouse and in town to get an ice cream or coffee. We shopped at amazing local spots like Hedgegrow and thoroughly enjoyed local eateries like Black Harpoon and Yardbird. Port Clyde is a lovely place to stay. Everyone is friendly. We plan to come back!!

Maine without the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Sea Star was absolutely fantastic! The decor inside is perfect for a beach cottage. The back deck was very quiet and relaxing. And with two grills (a nice Webber and a Bayou Classic for boiling) you can grill/steam all the vegetables, lobster and steamers you want. Easy walk to town, Forrest Gump's lighthouse, the beach, or kayaking. If you want to enjoy Maine without the crowds... this is the place to go!
