Location Details

'Raspberry Cottage' is an outdoorsy dream on the coast of Maine. Spend late July picking blueberries from the meadow, springtime mountain biking or hiking along the nearby trails, and any season enjoying a leisurely cruise around Back River Cove - whether by canoe, kayak, or rowboat!

Midcoast Maine boasts beaches, boutiques, galleries, music and plenty of places to eat! Spend the day sunbathing at Pemaquid Beach (Bristol), Drift Inn Beach or Birch Point Beach (toward Port Clyde) or nearby Martins Point Beach in Friendship before diving into some delectable Maine cuisine! Be sure to stop by the closest "watering hole" in Waldoboro Village, The Narrows Tavern, The Odd Alewives Farm Brewery (new this year) or the famous Moody's Diner (since 1927). In the Rockland area there's McLoons Lobster Shack in Spruce Head, Café Miranda or the Rockland Café. In the Boothbay area try the Chowder House Boat Bar or the Boothbay Craft Brewery and Tavern. On the Pemaquid Peninsula in Damariscotta there's King Eider's Pub, Schooner's Landing or Newcastle Publick House. Go toward the Pemaquid Lighthouse State Park (not to be missed) to the Anchor and Muscungus Bay Lobster (BYOB) in Round Pond or Shaw's in New Harbor. All are within 30 miles of the property!

If you're a museum fanatic, you'll love Owls Head Transportation Museum, the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Center For Maine Contemporary Art and perhaps the Coastal Children's Museum in the Rockland vicinity, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens (Boothbay) and the Maine Maritime Museum (Bath). Those who prefer a shopping spree will find stores abound in Damariscotta, home of Reny's ("A Maine Adventure"), as well as Boothbay Harbor, Rockland, and Camden. Go a little further to outlet shopping in Freeport where the L.L. Bean signature store is open 365 days/year 24/7!

    4/5

    The cabin is located in a fairly rural area. There are neighbors but they are not super close. Pets being allowed is nice for our family and we're thankful for that. We went swimming in ocean at high tide and took out the rowboat a few times. The dock is a very short walk through a field. Some very nice beaches located about an hour away. Theres also nice hiking and fresh water swimming up near Camden. Camden is a beautiful town to visit. The cabin is simple but nice. The shower, sinks, toilet all work. The small gas stove works fine. Plenty of windows to keep the air fresh. My only complaint was the blankets. They didnt appear to have been laundered. The sheets and pillow cases were clean but the blankets had a large amount of dander/dust in them. If you're allergic to cats are dogs I would recommend bringing your own blankets. My 2 boys and girlfriend reacted very badly to the blankets. Lots af sneezing and wheezing when they pulled the blankets over them. We spent an evening at the laundromat washing and drying the blankets. That corrected the issue and everyone slept well after that. I think the cleaning service rushes and isnt overly thorough. Lots of dust in the corners so to speak. The cleaning lady also tried to get us out of the house prior to the posted checkout time.

    John, thank you for your review. This owner has asked us to pass along the following response:

    "Thank you for staying with us and sharing your thoughts! The cottages are now closed for the season, so we will have plenty of time to address updating the blankets and make sure that they are in better condition for next season. We'll be sure to speak with our housekeeper regarding rushing out the guests before check out. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we really appreciate your suggestions so we can improve!"

    Best, the Evolve Team

  • We were busy visiting goat farms and preservation farms. Really enjoyed the Farnsworth Museum.

    Very rustic retreat. Tidal estuary a short walk through mown paths. No real insulation so if it is hot the cottage will be hot and if it is cold there are electric space heaters.

    Linda, thank you for sharing your experience with us. It sounds like you had a pleasant time in the area overall and hope you were able to take advantage of the many great places to see nearby. We hope that the coolness of the water, along with the ceiling fans and open windows were adequate. The homeowners work hard to ensure all guests who come to visit have the optimal stay.

  • Natural beauty and serenity in a sweet old cottage

    5/5

    Sweet older cottage with appropriately creaking doors placed comfortably away from other buildings nearby with a gorgeous field of wildflowers leading down to the water front. About the only downside is that there is no fireplace or fire pit to sit outside on a cool night. But otherwise it's infinitely charming, reasonably well appointed. The main double bed was ok but the twins in the adjoining room were wrapped in crinkly plastic and bit uncomfortable. But everything we needed was there and the absence of cell and internet while difficult for the hopelessly wired, was a blessing.
