Harbor Cottage Guest Reviews


A quintessential summer cottage (Sheila B.–February 2015)

As the architect for the renovation of this wonderful house I am biased. I/we have stayed here many times. The intrinsic character of this former country store, now turned to face the sea, is beautifully spare yet cozy; its large south facing windows convey a feeling of being in a ship at sea while eating a meal or sitting by the fire. It is ship-shape and beautifully appointed; the owners’ eye felt in every detail. One can slip into the water, feet away on a high tide or explore the Port Clyde area down the road or venture north to Rockland or Camden though we never wanted to leave.

Coastal Maine in heavy weather (Stephanie P.–February 2015)

We were there sometime in October 2014 for a conference in Camden for 3 nights, in a driving rain storm. It was lovely! The house is cozy, warm, beautiful, with a spectacular view in this case of the rain over the water. There isn’t a better place in the world to stay no matter what the weather. Bed comfortable, again with great view of the water. There is everthing you need including a working fireplace. It is also close (but not too close) to Thomaston, Rockland and Camden, so it is easy to get supplies and/or or go out for dinner.

Wonderful property with gorgeous views! (Evy–February 2015)

Lovely house and guest cottage with spectacular views. We loved being here for the month while renovating our own home in a nearby village. The interior is clean, calm, and lovely and the kitchen is fully equipped. The outdoor shower has a great view and works well, even in November! Waking up in the morning in the master bedroom to a dawn sky over ocean is very special. The woodturning stove took the edge off the cold and provided great atmosphere. I would recommend this property to everyone who values being directly on the water.

Gorgeous, romantic, fun, inspiring place. (Anonymous–February 2015)

Simply perfect! We marked our time with the tides, swam, warmed up again with the outdoor shower. Ate freshly bought foods from local markets right at the waterside. Inspiring place to be, makes one want to draw, paint, write. Beautifully and simply decorated, kitchen obviously stocked by someone who loves to cook. So cute and romantic. Cannot recommend more highly. Also lots to see and do along the coast one wants to explore Maine.
