My wife and I are retired school teachers. Since our children are grown, we rent our homemade summer cottage to families who would like to enjoy the coast of Maine. We personally clean and maintain the cottage with occasional help from professionals. We check the cottage personally prior to your arrival. We provide toys such as kayaks, lawn games, books, and binoculars.
We use a local motel for our booking service, so you must check our website for accurate availability, prices, and credit card processing.
Our welcome letter will be on the table when you arrive, and it includes our phone numbers and suggestions about how to have fun in the area.
If you love life, nature, and adventure, and can appreciate a cottage built by our own common hands, on a lot cleared by our own axes, you will love our cottage. If you need fancy and elegant to feel comfortable, please select some place else. We'll both be happier for it. We keep our prices far lower than any other oceanfront cottages in the Acadia region to accommodate families. We believe you (and your pet) will appreciate that. Come and enjoy the Maine coast from a genuine oceanfront cottage.
