About Kelly Chester

We both grew up in Brunswick Maine and attended Brunswick High School. We now reside in Texas most of the year. We have 3 children and love to visit our home in Maine as much as possible with them!

Kelly Chester purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

We bought this home because we fell in love with the property, the gardens are beautiful with something always in bloom! We wanted to have our own piece of Maine to bring our children to so that they would feel at home in Maine where we grew up! We also have lots of friends and family still in the area and we love to be able to spend time with them,

Great location, very comfortable house for 5 adults for a week in September..

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a quiet location but only 10 mins from a supermarket and easy drive to many trails and interesting areas to explore like Popham Beach and the botanical gardens in Boothbay.

We had a minor problem with the hot water which was quickly addressed.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very easy booking process, answered all our questions quickly.

On arriving the day after" Storm Stella", we weren't even sure if we would be able to access the house. On arriving late at night, the drive had been cleared, thank fully of snow, and the house was warm and inviting, the toasty gas fire was lit.

The house has 2 bedrooms downs stairs, and a queen bedroom upstairs, with a on suite bathroom. The kitchen, and dinning room is in the middle of the house and a living area on the far side. The is also a downstairs bathroom and laundry room.

In the warmer months I bet this cottage is amazing, there is a garage filled with toys! (For water sports).

A short walk down a little road is access to the water, which even in March was very pretty.

Because we went off season we didn't expect much to be open, but did find Cooks lobster and Ale house on Bailey's Island a welcome pit stop, with great fresh Lobster. (That's why you go to Maine right?).

I would definitely book this place again. The only thing missing for us personally was a kettle, as I'm a big tea drinker! Hopefully for us the next time will be the summer.

What a lovely place to rent. Worked out well with 2 couples. A great place to reconnect with friends. Would definitely recommend this location. Great quality linens and the a/c units in the bedrooms we used, it was a warm weekend.

Perfect Girlfriend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cundy's Harbor! The house was conveniently located, spacious, clean, and very welcoming. We actually spent half of our trip at the house (instead of out and about) because it just felt like home away from home! The owners sent us a ton of information to reference for our stay, and every place they recommended was amazing...the restaurants, sightseeing, and shopping, to name a few, were all outstanding. We only had a few questions about the property during our stay, and the owners were extremely helpful and timely with answering all of the questions we had. All in all, we will definitely return to the area in the near future and Cundy's Harbor will be the first place we check for availability! Thanks for everything Kelly!!!

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are Mainers who love Harpswell and all of the diversity it offers and wanted to spend some time there this summer. We found this house to be a very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated retreat with a lovely, private yard where hydrangeas were in full bloom right off the deck (which is a quiet spot for morning coffee). We grilled, boiled local lobsters in the nice big pot thoughtfully provided, took long walks and a great day hike on nearby Cliff Trail, visited local art galleries and the newly re-opened Cedar Beach, which is small but great for familes with younger children. Our teenager gave the wireless Internet a thumbs up. Kelly is very helpful and great to work with!
