About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy our charming ocean-front guest house that is so close to the water's edge you will feel like you are on a boat.

The guest house, along with our home, is located on three private acres in the historic Pennellville area. We are three miles from downtown Brunswick, a beautiful coastal town of 20,000. Only two hours to Boston, 15 minutes to Freeport.

Brunswick features Bowdoin College, the Maine State Summer Theater, a Summer Music Festival, a farmer's market, fine dining and convenient shopping. We are a short drive to Popham and Pemaquid beaches, lakes, mountains, and state and national parks.

The guest house features a large ocean-front living/dining area overlooking a Japanese garden and a small efficient kitchen on the first floor. Upstairs are two large ocean-front bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, the second bedroom a double.

Enjoy our herb and perennial gardens and panoramic ocean views, or simply enjoy a nap in a hammock. Access to Middle Bay with kayaking, canoeing and swimming are at your doorstep, with easy access from our dock. Enjoy a picnic on an island and all that Maine's natural coast has to offer: ospreys, eagles, loons, herons, egrets, seals.

The Pennellville area offers a beautiful bicycling and walking venue among historic farms and vistas.

We are also open to home exchanges (which do not need to be simultaneous), especially in Europe and the Caribbean. Our three bedroom house on the same property, featuring ocean views from every room may also be available. The guest house is adjacent to our home, situated in another direction and they share a common patio.

Amazing views with easy water access

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was comfortable, relaxing and peaceful. The ocean views from the cottage are gorgeous, with an expansive look out to the Bay - as well as an intimate overlook of the inlet. The private dock was so convenient for swimming and enjoying sunrise/sunset at the water's edge. A short walk away is another great swimming spot and boat launch. Situated in a picturesque, low-development neighborhood for long walks enjoying nature. We also loved the proximity to downtown Brunswick, Freeport and Portland. So many great activities nearby. Owners are super nice people too!

Peaceful, beautiful spot on the Maine coast

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful time in September at this very lovely guest house on the water. The house and the grounds--at a gorgeous, picturesque point on the water-- are so peaceful and quiet, but still within driving distance of all the wonderful things Maine has to offer.

The guest house has large rooms--beautifully and comfortably decorated---with everything you need for a great stay. And there are so many thoughtful touches that made it feel like home.

The location is perfect--on a point with just the water as a background. And it was really wonderful to look out the window at the trees, hear the birds chirping, and watch the changing sky over the water!

The owners are so pleasant and helpful, and will make sure you have whatever you need to make your stay just heavenly.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had three generations stay at this cottage for almost a week and we had a blast. We had traveled to Maine for a college graduation and decided to come early to enjoy the ocean. This place was perfect for our needs. The owners were there to greet us and give us the run down and then left us alone to settle in and enjoy the beautiful property. They were extremely respectful of our privacy but were always available to answer questions at any time. The property is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. I wish we lived closer because I would frequent this cottage every year if I could.

Sejour extraordinaire

  • 5 of 5

Ces quelques jours dans ce charmant et delicieux cottage au bord de l'ocean, ont ete merveilleux, magiques...

Tres bien equipe, cuisine, salle de bain, sejour avec de grandes baies vitrees donnant sur l ocean, deux chambres donnant egalement sur la mer, le tout amenage avec beaucoup de gout.

C est un veritable petit bout de paradis, un havre de paix unique.

Vous pourrez apprecier les balades tout autour, les baignades dans l ocean, et la vue dont on ne se lasse pas sur cette etendue calme.

Les proprietaires sont charmants, attentionnes et discrets, si vous avez besoin de renseignements sur la region, quoique ce soit, ils vous aiderons avec grand plaisir.

Magique !

Maine at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful summer week in this charming cottage on the bay. The views are incredible, the tide goes in and out dramatically, great places to walk, you can even find edible mushrooms in the woods (just ask the hosts). The cottage is very comfortable and welcoming. Great breezes at night, birds singing in the morning, a private dock for swimming and fishing, what more could you ask for. The hosts are helpful and friendly and a wealth of local information. We left with that "peaceful easy feeling."
