We made a last minute trip to Maine to celebrate the holidays. We have spent summers there for the past 18 years, but decided to make a winter pilgrimage to our favorite places. The Breens did not disappoint. The house was clean and spacious, plenty of room to hang out with the kids our dog. Morning coffee on the deck New Year's Day was the icing on the cake. One small maintenance issue occurred during the stay and we emailed Kevin- 30 minutes later he showed up, and it was New Years Eve. Can't wait to visit again.
We enjoyed our stay here very much! A beautiful view and a short walk to Short Sands Beach. The cottage was clean and lovely. All three bedrooms are on the second floor with a pullout couch in the TV room. The kitchen is very small and there’s no counter space to speak of which made cooking meals a little difficult. However, the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, cups, plates, utensils, etc. so there is really no need to bring from home. There is also only one bathroom right off the kitchen and this is small as well. We were supposed to have 8 people but only ended up having 5 total. The cabin did feel a little cramped with 5, especially waiting to use the bathroom. We had a couple of rainy days so being in the house together made for tight quarters. However, since most of the time is spent on the beach it wouldn’t be a huge problem. The driveway is very, very close to the house next door. And you have to be careful backing up because the road is not very wide and there’s nothing but rocks and ocean on the other side.
The backyard is lovely too with a fire pit, unfortunately we did not get to use it. There is a washer and dryer connected to the house which is very convenient. The owner also had plenty of towels and linens should you need extra. And there were Beach toys, chairs and even bicycles available for use. The owner really thought of everything! Plus, she answers very promptly to any questions. I would recommend this cottage to anyone.
