"The place is really nicely designed and an all around great Maine seaside experience. All exposed wood and stone. Feels rustic but still very comfortable. And the beds were comfy, which can be hard to find in rustic styled places. Though the cottage itself is not huge, (bedrooms are quite small), the living and dining area feels expansive with high ceiling in sections and plenty of room to settle in. The natural beauty of the location is hard to beat, with lots of wide flat rock area on which to hang out by the sea, literally steps from the cottage. You can stroll outside with your morning coffee and watch the ocean (we saw a seal swim by one morning), or hang out at night and have a fire at the fire pit. The way the house is situated, you cannot see the neighboring houses from the property or even from the seaside rocks in the immediate vicinity of the house until you walk out a bit, so it's very private, but with great ocean views in several directions due to being out on a corner of the peninsula. Back to the rustic part, it's definitely a seaside cottage with a few aging quirks, such as screen doors that may not seal perfectly, which let a few flies in, and some makeshift window screens. These add to the charm of the place for the most part, but I suppose someone looking for all out structural perfection could consider them a pan. The place does feel like a natural addition to the surrounding rocks and ocean. I would definitely come back to this place for a peaceful and secluded seaside retreat! Note - the rocks and ocean immediately in front of the cottage do not lend themselves well to actually entering the water, but a few hundred yards away is a rocky beach that could accommodate water entry for kayaks or even swimming (closed toe water shoes would be recommended and the water will be cold of course)."
