  • A cute, serene, and spacious home base

    "Our family of 2 plus a baby thoroughly enjoyed a two-month stay in the cottage this summer. The cottage is set peacefully at the end of a private driveway and surrounded by a well-kept lawn and lovely tall woods that sway in the breezes. On hot summer days we dunked our baby in the little stream a few yards through the woods behind the cottage. And on some uncommonly chilly summer days we lit a fire in the wood stove and stayed cozy inside! The owners are always friendly and helpful, happy to offer any local tips or assistance (and they shared fresh herbs and vegetables from their garden!) yet very respectful of privacy. The cottage shares a driveway with the main house so it feels private and quiet, but not too secluded. We cook a lot and appreciated that the kitchen and outdoor grill were well-equipped. We liked the open layout of the downstairs kitchen/dining/living area, and the enclosed sun porch is a nice bonus space for hanging out and peeking at the wild turkeys and rabbits that occasionally scamper through the yard. The queen-bedroom had more than enough space for our travel crib and large luggage, with room to spare. The cottage makes a perfect base for exploring the midcoast region and beyond, to places like the Blue Hill peninsula and Acadia. Belfast is the nearest town, less than 10 minutes north, and it's a cool one, with lots of amenities. A little cove off of Pitcher Pond is a few minutes' walk from the cottage and provides a beautiful place to take the owners' canoe for a paddle. We also enjoyed plenty of nearby swim spots: Lincolnville Beach, Knight's Pond in Northport, Norton's Pond in Lincolnville, and Balance Rock on Lake Megunticook. There's even a lovely organic farmstand across Route 52, maybe half a mile walk from the cottage. This is a great place to hang your hat!"

  • Just what we needed!

    "My family of six (four people + two beloved dogs) had a wonderful stay in Christine's lovely home. She is a responsive, friendly, caring host. We felt welcomed and well cared for. The cottage is clean, comfortable and cozy. My two girls loved having their own loft/space. We managed to cook a Thanksgiving feast without a hitch as well! The location was great. Close enough to Camden, but just far enough out to feel like we were away from it all. Lovely hiking trails nearby as well. Thank you Christine! We really felt all of the good vibes and appreciated that so very much. A memorable getaway, for sure. I would definitely recommend."

  • Great place to use as a base for your vacation

    "Really enjoyed this house....the additions were very nicely done. Everything was clean and neat; plenty of towels and linens. Great having the washer and dryer available. We sat out on the patio each evening with coffee and adult beverages while someone grilled on the outdoor grill. We heard the loons every night. We liked this location because you can get to Route 1 north or south in about 10 minutes...from there you are traveling up and down the coast. It's 2.5 hours to Acadia National Park but well worth the trip....Bar Harbor was okay, very touristy. Living here in Virginia Beach I thought we had the most t-shirt shops but Bar Harbor may have outdone us. Very crowded even on a Wednesday afternoon. However, make time to hit the towns on your way up including Belfast, Rockport, Camden, etc., just as nice as Bar Harbor only smaller. In Thomaston you have to stop at the MAINE STATE PRISON STORE...unbelievable the quality of the woodworking on their items. Some of the furniture in the house came from this store....you gotta stop and look around. Even Darmiscotta had some nice shops. You have to visit Pequimad Point, the lighthouse and the old fort William Henry about 35-40 minutes from the house through Darmiscotta. It was quintessential Maine right down the street. The Hannaford grocery store in town has everything you will need and is about a 15 minute trip. Again, nothing to complain about with this house...4 adults and we all had more than enough room to get around. Would stay here again."
