  • Wonderful Coastal Maine Cottage


    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cottage in Prospect Harbor. It was equipped with everything we might need and more. The owner was so helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Perfect space and wonderful hosts!


    We absolutely loved our stay. The space is homey, light filled, incredible views and stocked with everything you need. Might just be my favorite place I've ever stayed. The host was so helpful and offered great tips from everything from groceries to good restaurants to the best night to build a fire. I would absolutely stay here again.

    Only thing to keep in mind is it's an hour from Acadia and local food options are limited. Not at all a negative, as it also meant you are out of the touristy areas and could really unplug. Just worth it to have a good amount of groceries to last in case you rather just stay in and enjoy what this peaceful retreat has to offer.

  • Amazing place: peaceful and restorative


    This was the nicest home we have stayed in. It was immaculate. The kitchen supplies were top notch, lovely to cook with. The view from the small porch is enchanting. Perfect place for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. We had a fire in the pit a couple of times…stars were amazing. Nearby there are several good restaurants, but especially recommend the homemade blueberry soft serve ice cream at Me and Ben’s. The park at Schoodic Penensula is very close and what wonderful views. The main park is a lovely hour drive away and very easy to get to. There is a lot to do and see right around the house, too. Nice antique shops. Each day, however, we were so happy to get back to our lovely cottage. A few tips; buy your own firewood along the way at a “camp wood” station…need cash. Wi-Fi was not very strong. Groceries in Ellsworth is best place to get supplies.Hosts were prompt in reply and very helpful. Would highly recommend this stay!

  • Our stay


    We were very pleased with our decision to book here. John and Debbie were on excellent hosts. The property is located in an attractive area with short duration access to many of the attractions that drew us to the area. The property was very clean and great for a stay. With an oceanside view and a nice area to sit by the water, it really was a great place to stay.
