Quaint Guest Cottage Overlooking Potts Harbor

Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Leave the stresses of everyday life behind and enjoy a relaxing vacation along the beautiful Maine coast, where the slogan 'The way life should be' holds true.

This hidden treasure located at the end of a peninsula, offers views of scenic harbors and spectacular sunsets. Wake to the sound of passing lobster boats, sip beverages on the deck overlooking the shore, and enjoy the fresh, cool summer breezes.

This 625 square foot guest cottage is located on the lower level of a family home. It is totally self-contained and has private entrances. The original structure was an addition to this charming 1927 summer home about 50 years ago and recently has been refurbished to include all the modern conveniences.

This cozy get away is economically priced and affords all the luxuries of a private rental. Comfortably sleeping 2 adults, a second all-purpose room contains a convertible couch for children or overnight guests, a full kitchen and dining section, and a living area with spectacular views.

Whether you are interested in dabbling in Maine's history, visiting lighthouses, taking excursions, or just enjoying the shore and eating lobster, this is the place for you. So sit back, relax, and remember days gone by, when life was simpler and vacations were a time for relaxation and renewal.

About The Owner

As a child this beautiful Maine home was owned by my grandparents. Grandpa built a separate unit, which is now what we refer to as our bungalow, so that all of his grandchildren and their families could enjoy the vacation home and he and Grandma could still keep their sanity! Growing up in this house made it a part of me, the sights and smells of the ocean, and the memories attached to them. So, in 2008, when the second generation needed to sell it, my husband and I bought it in order to maintain the family traditions.

The grandchildren are all grown now, some with grandchildren of their own but the traditions will carry on. We hope you can make some memories too, and enjoy this beautiful spot just as we do.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

We think this property is a paridise and it is the highlight of our summer. We have been coming for the past seven years. It is a relaxing environment and offers some of the best of nature such as beautiful sunsets.

Loved staying here. The owner was so nice, the location so beautiful and lived relaxing on the seawall in the mornings and evenings. Watched the lobster boats heading out on high tide and could walk the beach during low tide. Absolutely beautiful location!

Rustic cottage overlooking garden and sea

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Our german shepherd did too :) I have never felt so relaxed at the end of my vacation. The beds are comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. My 88 yr old mother loved to pick up stones and shells and smell the sea air. So wonderful! Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!
