'Cozy' Retreat at the Water's Edge

Located in: Harpswell
This is your Maine getaway, the one you have been searching for! Perfect for the couple who want to experience the coast of Maine from the water's edge and not a cramped hotel room. The cottage sits on a large lot with its larger 2 bedroom sister cottage 'Lofty' (VRBO# 165589) about 200 feet away. Rent one or if you prefer rent both and have the grounds and dock all to yourself...sort of your own family vacation compound.

Just a few steps outside the cottage and down a gently sloping path is A HUGE DEEP WATER dock (not tidal) with large deck/landing and open ocean views. The dock is shared with Lofty Cottage. The is the BEST part of the cottage and a lot of fun. There is a nice picnic table on the landing so you can enjoy a quiet meal and gaze at the beautiful views. The dock is shared with Lofty (VRBO 165589). Kayak and or swim and enjoy your fresh Maine lobster on your own dock! (Kayaks are not provided)
Water views from every room. Located on a dead end gravel road typical of Harpswell, a mix of local color, cottages and fisherman. This cute one bedroom cottage is perfect for relaxing on the ocean and enjoying the outdoors. Private yet only minutes from downtown Brunswick including Bowdoin College, the Maine State Music Theater, restaurants and shops. Fully renovated in 2007 and further updated 2017 this cottage features a knotty pine interior, new appliances and a full bath with large shower. In response to guest feedback we have added additional kitchen storage and work space. The bedroom was also redecorated! Private fire pit for marshmallows and relaxing.
The cottage has a comfy knotty pine living room with cathedral ceiling that opens into a small deck just feet from the waters edge. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink as you watch the ospreys dive and the seals swim. The living room has a small color TV with DVD player for leisure time as well as mini stereo with mp3 player plug in capability. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities including a big lobster pot.

Kayak to Little Snow island or interior Quahog Bay (see link below for more information on the island). This is a very neat kayak trip. (Kayaks not provided, bring your own or rent at nearby facilities)

If you like hikes and are looking for a wonderful one, Karen and I recommend Morse Mountain Preserve owned by Bates College in Phippsburg.. It's a 4 mile loop that leads to Seawall Beach, the views are incredible and the hike is doable even with kids. For more information see the link below.

Attention Boaters....there is a mooring available that will handle up to a 30' boat, if you need to arrive by boat or moor at the house for the week. We are getting many inquiries from sailors who want to arrive by boat. The mooring and dock are available with prior arrangements and a small additional fee for use of the mooring.
Cozy is the perfect place for a quiet retreat. Compared to a hotel this is a wonderful value and a great way to experience the coast of Maine. To get a bird's eye view use google earth. Just click on the 'See All My Rental Listings'. Please e mail us with any specific questions about any of our listings.

Renting a private home is different than staying at a hotel. It is important to ask questions before you reserve and to have realistic expectations. We have done our best to describe our properties, however, guest expectations vary. If you have special requests or needs please ask before you reserve. We want to avoid renter's remorse or the old "this was not what I thought it was going to be like". In most cases guests never asked any questions!!!! Refunds at the time of check in are not permitted.

PS. Ask about our long term rentals...maybe stay the summer!
