get away from it all
The Cottage is located near the end of a narrow one land road with grass down the middle. Charming spot, well kept and clean. I was solo so used the first floor area which was just perfect, Unusually warm october weather had me on the deck daily. Internet very spotty, no tv, though plenty of DVD's made this a great unwind spot. Nearby Rockland has great restaurants and as much going on as you would like. Nice beach walking. here and at nearby Birch Point. I cant say enough. Thank you
Just an amazing location!!!
We had a fantastic week at the Mills Cottage. Low tide offers a beach right below the house and high tide offers a perfect spot for kayaking which we did every day courtesy of Duck Trap Kayaks (they deliver and pick them up). Right down the road was a state park with gorgeous beach and rocks to climb and enjoy the view. Owl's Head Lighthouse is not to be missed, spectacular views!!! The cottage was comfortable and clean, the deck facing the water was wonderful and coffee at dawn out on the big rocks was breathtaking. If you are looking for peace and a true getaway, this is it! Thank you so much for sharing this special place. The only reason I give this four stars instead of five is because we had some slightly loud neighbors for part of our stay, not sure if they owned the house or were renting.
Perfect coastal Maine cottage
The Mills Cottage is simply the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a beautiful setting on the Maine coast. The deck has amazing views and there is a sandy beach that is perfect for looking for shells or going swimming (especially at high tide). It is also just a 15 minute drive to Rockland, which has fantastic restaurants (Primo!), bars and shops. The cottage is well-equipped and has everything you would need. The owner, Doreen, was always available to answer any questions and was extremely helpful in the process. I cannot recommend this cottage enough. My family and I are already looking forward to staying here again. Thank you, Doreen and Steve!
Great little cottage on the oceanfront
My family and I had a great time at the cottage and can't wait to book another stay! It was a lovely place right on the ocean and was a nice getaway without distractions. We loved that we had the option of watching movies or sitting out and listening to the ocean. Everything was exactly as expected and Doreen did a great job on answering any questions we had and making sure we had a wonderful stay!!
Cottage is located near several beautiful lighthouses, hiking with sweeping ocean views and several museums.
