Recent Harpswell reviews

  • Amazing views at this lovely cottage!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage. It is PERFECT for 2 people and has everything a renter needs, owners have been incredibly thoughtful. The views can't be beat - quintessential Maine. And even though the cottage is right next to a house and a working lobster wharf - it has an incredible amount of privacy. It is close to Holbrooks and Watson's - both amazing lobster pounds and such an easy drive to Brunswick or Bath or anywhere else on Harpswell."

  • So much better than a hotel room.....

    "What a lovely place to rent. Worked out well with 2 couples. A great place to reconnect with friends. Would definitely recommend this location. Great quality linens and the a/c units in the bedrooms we used, it was a warm weekend."

  • Beautiful house, great spot in Maine

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this house. The location was an easy drive to Freeport, Brunswick and Bath, with some beautiful trails nearby. The house and view of the water are just as lovely as the pictures. We loved being able to see the water from the kitchen, living room, one upstairs bedroom and the upstairs office nook. We appreciated the thoughtful amenities available in the house (a well-stocked kitchen, boats and life jackets, a board game library, a folder with tons of information on the local area). The house layout was great for a multi-generational family (grandparents can sleep on the first floor with a private bathroom, kids have plenty of space to play upstairs or in the basement)."

  • Peaceful fishing hamlet

    "Not wanting to stay in a cabin isolated in the woods of Maine, our family chose this place located in a hamlet on Orrs Island. Situated on several coves, all of them stunningly beautiful, we found the house to be peaceful and quiet. The cove is about 100 yards away and there are ocean views from the house. My younger kids went swimming and exploring the cove at least twice a day. Popham beach is about 40 minutes away and makes for a good day trip. As my wife and I like to run in the early mornings, the hilly terrain on Orrs Island provided a good challenge. It did mean running on the main road but we found most locals willing to drive around us during the run. Biking was also challenging but fun. Less than a mile away is H2O where we rented kayaks (paddle boards also available). There are numerous lobster shacks around and a couple of general stores for emergency supplies. As we were on the coast, the nights were cool enough to sleep with the windows open and avoid turning on the AC. Day trips to Brunswick, Bath and Freeport also provided distractions from the quiet although we preferred to stay locally and read books. The house is surprisingly well-equipped with a variety of literature to appeal to all tastes. As for the house, the kitchen and dining area are very functional (great gas stove!) and having brought our own coffee maker (Bialetti) and milk frother, we began each day with a cappucino while viewing the ocean. Although the showers could do with a little more water pressure, the washer/dryer combo worked very well for our daily washing needs. Our host Peter met us upon arrival and offered many helpful suggestions but stayed out of the way so we could simply enjoy the house and its wonderful setting. With five people using the internet every morning (regrettably) we found the wifi to be excellent - even stronger than our own back in suburbia. We have found Maine and this house so charming that we are quite sure to be back in the near future."
