This cozy waterfront cottage offers 2 bedrooms and 1 bath and is located right on Davis Cove in Cushing, Maine. It is the perfect retreat for a small family or two couples traveling together. The cottage has an open concept living, dining, kitchen area that is filled with light. Its large deck spans the full width of the cottage, with endless views of the ocean. The kitchen has a large table that seats 6 for enjoying lobster suppers and playing a fun game of Monopoly. It is fully equipped and has everything that you will need to prepare a delicious supper, including all new appliances in 2016.

Imagine waking up and opening your eyes each morning to breathtaking views of Davis Cove. The large deck overlooks the water and is outfitted with a barbecue, outside dining area, a hot tub, and Adirondack chairs. The neighborhood is quiet, woodsy and full of nature. This property is 5 acres of lawn and mature trees for you and your family to enjoy with 700' of shore frontage and a deep water dock. There’s a feeling of seclusion, yet other houses are nearby. You can spend the perfect day reading a book, sipping cocktails with friends, or just relaxing while you enjoy the view. This property provides direct access to the ocean, so if you want to do some exploring, you can make arrangements to rent kayaks locally and they will even deliver them right to your door.

The private location is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing getaway. But if you’d like to enjoy everything that Midcoast Maine has to offer… a few suggestions include Rockland, which features the annual Blues Festival, Lobster Festival, and the Boats, Homes & Harbor Show. There are also Windjammer days in both Boothbay and Camden. You can take the ferry to several of the local islands or visit the many lighthouses in and around the area. We have many art galleries and art museums, the Owls Head Transportation Museum and the Lighthouse Museum. If hiking is for you, there are many hiking trails for you to enjoy. You can drive or climb Mt. Battie in Camden for amazing views, shop in the cute and quaint shops in downtown Rockland and there are a multitude of places to eat for your dining pleasure. You can also plan wonderful day trips to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Camden, Belfast, Boothbay, Damariscotta, Wiscasset and the list goes on. There is a binder of information on all of these things and more, located in the home to help you decide what to do first!

The cottage is one level, and has two cozy bedrooms with a Queen size bed in each. It also offers a smart television so you can access your Netflix, Hulu or similar account, but please note that due to the location, cable tv is not available. Amenities include a telescope and binoculars so you can watch the boats go by, a marine radio to listen in, and books and board games.

This cottage is the perfect place to sit back, unwind and unplug from all the distractions of everyday life so you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your vacation.

Please note that due to the proximity of the deep water and a rocky coast, children must be supervised at all times for their own safety. Dogs accepted on a case by case basis.

The property is equipped with one of the most elaborate residential dock systems in Maine, and has in the past accommodated a 90’ motor yacht. The dock system includes a pier, waterfront shed, 50A shore power, fresh water, phone, and DSL Internet at dockside. The dock system is not set up for use at this time, however, the owner would welcome full-season rentals from yacht owners, and is ready to negotiate inclusion of full dock facilities with such a rental. The entire property including dock and moorings could be rented for less than the cost of dockage alone for a large yacht in nearby Camden or Portland.

                                                            We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here! It was cozy, private and beautiful! It was amazing to see the sunset every night from the deck and the stars at night, wow! We could see the Milky Way. The sound of the water and the lobster boats was very relaxing. The cottage was well equipped. We loved being able to grill several nights. We enjoyed using the hot tub daily! It was a great spot from which to explore the midcoast of Maine. We will definitely be back!

                                                            We're so glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage! It's a very special spot and it sounds like you took advantage of everything wonderful about it! Happy Anniversary...be sure to come back soon!

                                                            A wonderful piece of Maine

                                                            Harry V.

                                                            We arrived and thanks to google earth saw exactly what we were expecting. The cottage was cozy and clean and located on a spectacular piece of property. There was plenty of room for our dogs and the grounds were impeccably maintained. The information book was very complete and well organized. We connected with Danny, the proprietor of Luke's Seafood located a 5 minute walk across the road. He was super friendly and furnished us with lots of lobster. The cottage came complete with large lobster cooker and a big, easy to clean picnic table on the supersized deck. This coupled with spot on instructions for cooking the lobsters in the information book was icing on the cake. There are incredible views from the rocky shoreline that offer spectacular sunsets. There is also a rocky beach area that is accessible at low tide. Be careful though, the rocks are slippery whan wet!!!! There is a beautiful dock. Unfortunately the floating portion of the dock that would have made water access, fishing and canoe launching a breeze was stowed on land. Although this was disclosed in the description you don't realize how important the dock is for water access until you are trying to access it! All in all, a wonderful place and highly recommended. Thanks for being pet friendly.

                                                            Incredibly peaceful spot

                                                            Martha S.

                                                            This is a perfectly beautiful location, on a quiet cove that is within a reasonable drive of Rockland, the Maine Botanical Gardens, and even Camden and Rockport. The cottage itself is almost at the end of a road, so very little vehicle traffic or noise. Lobstermen come quite close to the shore by the cottage in the mornings to check their traps and we greatly enjoyed watching them while sipping morning coffee. We had a bald eagle overhead several times, and in the evenings, the haunting calls of loons on the water. Truly an exquisitely relaxing site. The cottage itself was extremely well appointed and comfortable. All in all, an excellent rental experience. We hope to return!

                                                            Wonderful stay in Cushing Maine

                                                            mary c.

                                                            We made a fortunate find in the Cozy Private Cottage in Cushing. The cottage was simple, clean (inside and out --clean deck, dock and well cared for grounds), well organized and stocked with just the right supplies for our cooking needs; it is also just the right size for 4 adults. The views are outstanding—an ideal location for enjoying the unique beauty of mid-coast Maine. It's the best of both worlds --quiet and private, but near enough to Thomaston, Rockland and Camden for easy visits. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the dock to enjoy the changing light and tides --watching the lobster boats, birds, fog and sunsets. We rented kayaks for the week and explored the coast, inlets and islands daily --something new to see each day. The information binder was thorough and addressed our questions --from purchasing and cooking lobsters (really the best we've had) to visiting the nearby Olson house. The property managers, Sue and Valerie, were a pleasure to work with --welcoming and responsive. We hope to be back again.

                                                            Words don't do it justice !

                                                            When we drove into the driveway and saw the water and blue sky, we knew we found a piece of paradise! With interest in exploring the east coast as well as having a peaceful place to unwind and relax, we could not have found a more perfect spot. The only sounds you hear are the birds, waves and lobster fishing boats 🚣� that are literally at the end of the dock. Best days were spent relaxing on the dock. We spent several days driving the coast and exploring some of the quaint and historic communities

                                                            (Rockland, Camden, Wiscasset, Freeport and of course Portland and Kennebunkport). Don't forget Booth Bay Harbor and whale 🐳� watching!!

                                                            We also love to find good places to eat and we were never disappointed. Couple of favorites were Cafe Miranda, Moody's, Boathouse, Taste of Maine and more. Cottage was very comfortable. Great front room full of view and sunshine. You truly won't be disappointed with this quiet piece of tranquility
