About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to Talbot Way Cottage! Beautiful water views from every room, wood floors, open-beam ceilings, huge fireplace, wrap-around deck. This house is intimate and romantic while the views on all sides bring in the outdoors and give it an expansive feel. The view looks across the harbor to a state park with woods and meadows. You can watch sailboats and fishing vessels as the tide comes and goes. The sunrise sparkles on the water and the sunsets turn it a deep pink. This private view is constantly changing and is so relaxing to watch! The cottage has a dishwasher, in-sink disposal, ice maker, washer and dryer. There are two new televisions, cable, 2 DVD players, book and movie library, board games, and free WI-FI. Seasoned firewood is provided. There is no hotel in the area with accommodations like this! Enjoy the excellent snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the area. Lobster is available year round.

We provide kayaks, bikes and snow shoes. We can help you arrange your touring activities. The area provides infinite possibilities for the nature lover, boater, historian, art lover, birdwatcher, stargazer, golfer or shopper. We can help you arrange lighthouse trips, eco-tours, lobster bakes on islands, whale-watching, kayaking, rafting, farm visits, museum trips, windjammer cruises, drives to the mountains, berry or apple picking, skeet shooting, archery, hiking and catered meals at the cottage. You can walk to a dock-side lobster and clam restaurant.

There is something to do every season, lots of different kinds of restaurants and shopping. This cottage is 5 minutes from the famous LL Bean store (open 24 hours) and surrounding outlets and art galleries. We also live nearby and one of us is usually in the area so you can be sure to be well accommodated. We can help with rental car arrangements, trip planning, provisioning ahead of time (just email your shopping list) and anything else you might need. Our cottage is our favorite place in the world and we want it to be your's too!

Welcoming Harbor Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Warm and spacious~ 8 of us stayed at Susan's family cottage for a Maine wedding in winter~close enough to major roads and Freeport shopping, but secluded enough for the full feel of a vacation. The panoramic view from the large family room is so peaceful and calming. The house has loads of charm and we felt right at home after a long drive from NJ. Bedding and towels all clean an adequate~ kitchen has plenty of pots and pans for your use and we loved the fireplace. As this is a water based, well established property, renters should anticipate typical signs of use, which for us added to the homey feel. Plenty of space and well priced. Susan is an excellent communicator and near by to answer questions and further help you enjoy your stay. Would love to enjoy this cottage in other seasons as well!

Pure magic. This house has real soul. Even if the temperatures weren't well below freezing, we still wouldn't have felt the need to leave the house. The views from every window were absolutely stunning, and the fireplace made for the coziest holiday season we've had in years. The LL Bean stores are just a quick drive down the road, and Portland a short drive away as well. We made our way out tubing at Seacoast Adventures but even with so much to do nearby, our favorite memories were in the house itself. Seeing a bad eagle out the window was a highlight. The house is very warm and comfortable and has everything you need. The neighbors are very nearby but the property felt very private. We would highly recommend it to anyone. Our friends and family who saw pictures of our stay said that it looked like a fairy-tale. The owner is very responsive and so welcoming, with lots of helpful tips for things to do in the area. We hope to come back again soon.

Comfortable and cozy, with great views.

  • 5 of 5

My whole family met here, from all parts of the world, to celebrate my daughter's wedding. It was so comfortable and convenient. The views were spectacular, and my children enjoyed hiking, kayaking and biking.

The location was private, but still near everything. Beds, sofas were super comfortable and the house was immaculate. Big deck, with water views from all windows. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay again.
