About Merle and Karen Thompson
Merle has lived in New Harbor his whole life, and Karen has been here for 35 years. Karen grew up in the Boston area and was a guest at Thompson Cottages since she was a baby. New Harbor is our year-round home.
Merle and Karen Thompson purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Merle and Karen Thompson chose New Harbor
Our family has owned this property since 1920 and we, the third generation to own it, have been its stewards since 2000. The property is a treasure to us and our family, and we care for everything with great attention to detail and love. We live here year round, and we enjoy having our guests return year after year to a place that comes to mean a great deal to them, too. We are always excited to have new guests and to see them enjoy the beautiful Midcoast area as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
Stunning ocean vistas. Watch gorgeous sunrises and night skies ablaze with stars from the deck. Little Island is home to osprey raising their young, then eagles in the fall. Watch lobsterboats at work, as well as pleasure craft motoring by. All cottages feature oil paintings by Merle's grandfather, G. H. Thompson, a nationally known artist, as well as some by the many artists who come here to work. We offer a library with books, puzzles, and games for the family to play by the fireplace and kitchens equipped for preparing lobster dinners. Coziness, cleanliness, and peace are our hallmarks. Being responsible stewards of our beautiful unspoiled area is very important to us.

Strongly recommend the simple solitude of these ocean cottages
Very quiet, simple cottages - perfect to get away from it all. Close enough to local restaurants and activities without being near some of the more popular and busier areas of Maine. A great find
We enjoyed hosting you and your family in the States. We hope to see you again!
Very look location .. right on the sea
the ocean side cottages have great location. The living room and kitchen has big picture windows from where you can see the ocean. There is a patio with a wide view of the ocean
Thank you, Dev. We enjoyed having you stay with us, and we hope to see you again.
We offer some of the best views on the Mid-Coast, and we love to provide a comfortable place for families to relax and spend time together!
My first stay at Thompson Cottages
This was my first stay at Thompson Cottages. I have visited the area for over 20 years and never came across this gem! The cottage was as close to the water as you can get! The cottage was impeccable-very clean. The windows were spotless to better see the beautiful view. It was very clear to us that the owners take great pride in their property-so well cared for. Everyone we met who was working that day clearly enjoyed their jobs, were very pleasant and kind. I really can't say enough about our stay here! So peaceful, the sunsets and sunrises were priceless!
Great Vacation Location...
My wife and I honeymooned at Thompson Cottages 41 years ago, and have been returning yearly for about the last 15 years. We especially like the "front ocean" cottages, simply because we like to be as close as possible for the sights and sounds. Every cottage we have stayed in is very well maintained. Each one has its own unique vista, not just the "front ocean" ones. The well-supplied kitchen, fireplace with provided wood, deck, etc. etc. all make for a memorable stay. Merle and Karen and their staff are friendly and helpful when you need them...invisible when you don't. The cottages are great if you want to just "hang out" by the ocean, whether inside, out on the deck, or on the rocks. Yet, there are plenty of things to do in the area if you want to be more "on the go." We HIGHLY recommend Thompson Cottages...if you go once, you'll want to come back again and again.
If you want to take a breath of fresh air and sea...
Excellent cottages on the rocks... next to the sea... very clean!!! kitchen very well equipped.
The fireplace is awesome...
Beautiful Maine Getaway
The Thompson Cottages are the best experience that you can get of the Maine coast overlooking the open ocean with a direct view of Monhegan Island. This is the perfect, relaxing vacation spot, listening to the surf on the porch, watching ospreys nest on neighboring Little Island, and lighting a fire in the fireplace for a cozy evening. You can't beat the view or the peacefulness!
