Listen to the gulls keen. Watch the Cormorants and osprey dive. Smell the salty tang in the air. Feel the pounding of the surf come up through the ledge on which you stand taking it all. Imagine the taste of the yummy lobster dinner planned for tonight!
The Ledge will excite your senses as it melts away your stress. This is the Ocean. This is Maine. This is Summer. This is The Ledge. And this could be your vacation spot. The one you will come back to year after year! The one you will speak wistfully of throughout the winter, counting the days till you can come back again!
SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
The cu...te little pebble beach is great for sunning or tide pool exploring at low tide. Swimming, kayaking and sailing are wonderful from the beach. The large yard is great for badminton and croquet, Frisbees or kite flying. Southport Island is great for biking and walking. Many of the locals like to get around on moped. The Yacht club is a short drive as is the championship golf course. Be sure to bring your binoculars as you will love all the scenery; light houses, birds, porpoise, seals and even whales have been seen from this part of Southport. Sail boat, yachts and the occasional tall ship pass by as well!
You are a short drive to dining, shopping, boat trips, hiking trails, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Less than a mile to Newagen Inn for dinner or just a couple of miles across the Island to the Southport General Store for their great pizza and pastries as well as sandwiches and sundries. Boothbay Harbor is about 8 miles and offers whale watching, boat tours or you take in a show at the Opera House or Boothbay Play House. Artist’s galleries, boutiques, restaurants and even a hand-made saltwater taffy factory are fun options.

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION?
Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make you vacation perfect!
