Overview

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.

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!

Charming Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sea Star! This home has all the charm of an older home with modern conveniences and design. Everything was beautifully thought out, functional and cozy. It's a quick walk downtown and to a lovely beach...we did both with young kids and it was easy. The home was also spotless! Sea Star is a true treasure!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Delightful, bright, updated, and perfectly situated. 10-20 minute stroll to town, beach and lighthouse, respectively. Extraordinary use of limited space - exquisite how efficiently the cottage is laid out. We comfortably fit two families (4 adults; 5 kids) in the 4 bedrooms. Only downside is one adult BR is right off the kitchen, and the other was a bit stuffy on warm nights (no A/C, only 1 window), but nothing in this world is perfect, after all. And if you do not already know, Port Clyde is a gem. Strongly recommend: 4.5 stars.

Perfect two-family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sea Star was just the relaxing getaway we were hoping for. The house appears small but in fact held our family of 3, our friends' family of 4, and their au pair. The furniture and decor was bright and modern - and made for families with kids. Everything we needed was on-hand, including kids movies, games, grill, beach towels and chairs, and fans for each room.

We walked to the harbor every day - either for ice cream, coffee from Squid Ink, or just to watch the sun set. The beach was a short drive - and has the softest sand of any Maine beach I've been to. Just be mindful of the tide or you won't have much beach to enjoy! We ventured into Rockland for groceries and mini-golf and later for a delicious adults-only dinner.

Monhegan Island is an absolute must - take the boat out for a day of hiking or stay overnight if you can.

We highly recommend Sea Star and look forward to a future visit.

Outstanding location and cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have actually stayed at Sea Star twice. The cottage itself is charmingly decorated, not a detail overlooked. It's clean, has ample bedroom and bathroom space, and is equipped with whatever you need throughout the home. There's a nice deck with a grill and a well-maintained yard.

And the location is fantastic... within walking distance to Port Clyde, kayaking, the ferry, and several restaurants. The proximity to Rockland, Camden, lobster shacks was the icing on the cake!

We highly recommend Sea Star for a couple, like us, or a family with children. You won't be disappointed!
