About Suzy & Joe Kane
We enjoyed our cottage every summer for 1 to 2 weeks every year, starting in 1985. It wasn't until 2013 that we moved to Tenants Harbor, after spotting a year-round house for sale on the same street as our cottage. We surprised ourselves by making the decision so quickly; we had lived more than a decade on Peaks Island, Maine. We had always enjoyed the beauty of Tenants Harbor and have learned what a wonderful year-round community it is. The views from our street and throughout the town change with the season, time of day, and weather and are a constant source of pleasure.

Why Suzy & Joe Kane chose Saint George
We were looking for a good location and something we could afford. We love the slow pace of Tenants Harbor and its proximity to the excellent shops, services, museums, and other entertainment in the towns of Rockland, Rockport, and Camden. Since 1985, we've made some improvements, most notably the screened porch, the addition of a shower, and a thermostatically controlled gas fireplace, but we've kept the simple interior.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cozy interior and the outdoor spaces; the views of the surrounding woods and the limited views of the harbor across the street. We also love the street we're on which hugs the harbor all the way to the center of town. You can walk to the center of town in 15 minutes or less (about 1/2 mile) with beautiful views of the harbor with the sailboats and lobster boats and small islands. (Kayak Rentals are available through Port Clyde Kayaks, 207-372-8100, and will deliver free.) The cottage has many windows so there is cross ventilation and many views. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable, including the mattresses, and in good repair. The wi-fi signal is strong; the cable service provides about 100 channels, and a DVD player is provided. The gas fireplace, operated by thermostat, is perfect for cool evenings or cool fall days. The screened porch enables you to be, in effect, outdoors, but protected from the elements (in case of rain). It's a lovely place to read or eat a meal. The boat house provides good storage if you bring bikes or kayaks. We are nearby to assist with any questions you might have.

Sweet little cabin in a beautiful setting!
Suzy was so sweet to work with- very responsive and quick.
Thank you, Melinda. You were very sweet to work with, too! So happy you enjoyed the cottage and the setting. Tenants Harbor is a beautiful spot!
Lovely cabin in the woods
Had a very relaxing time.
Thank you. We're happy you did!
Gracious Hosts and Lovely Cabin
The title says it all. Suzy and Joe provided a wonderful escape for my wife, 1-year-old and I. The cabin was quaint and peaceful and had every amenity we needed. We even had a coffee grinder delivered to us within minutes of asking where I might find one in the cupboards. Suzy and Joe were also very gracious when I absent-mindedly forgot (more than once) a couple of different things. Thanks for everything!
Thank you for your very kind review.
We've very pleased that you enjoyed the cottage. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family, including your lovely son with the most beautiful blue eyes!
Clean, quiet and thoroughly the coast of Maine. Stay here and you won’t want to leave!
Suzy and Joe are very easy to communicate with and the photos accurately show what you get. The screened porch is great.
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed the cottage, including the screened-in porch. It is a haven! Please come back!
Hosts were very helpful with a quick response to our questions. The cottage had everything we needed. The screened in back porch was wonderful. The stairs and bedroom ceilings were a challenge. Great location between Port Clyde and Camden.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. It was very nice to meet you, your wife, and Flynn. I can understand that the 6 1/2 ft. bedroom ceiling (which slopes to 4 ft.) was a challenge, especially because you are both quite tall. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Maine vacation. Come back again!
Lovely, super clean, No Frills but everything you could want.
We absolutely loved our stay in this Cottage. When we booked the reservation our hosts let us know that there was little insulation and not a lot of any kind of central heat. We decided to brave it and I'm so glad we did. The bed is super comfortable and there is plenty of warm bedding upstairs. I was not cold for a second once I got under the covers. Downstairs is a cheery, easy to operate gas stove that keeps them main floor cozy and we certainly saw the temperature drop to below 40.
The kitchen is nicely appointed. If you're a foodie bring a good knife, but otherwise every size of pot and pan that you need is there. And of course all you're going to do is steam lobsters and sear scallops, so have at it!
Joe and Suzy, thank you for sharing a part of your past with us. We very much enjoyed it and will recommend it to friends who might want to visit Midcoast Maine.
Thank you for the lovely review, Caitlin. We're very happy the cottage worked out well for you and your husband. And thanks for pointing out the need for a good knife. I'll make sure to provide them for the next rental season.
