Or relax with dinner at the cottage made from local meats, vegetables & treats available at the Bow Street Market. A public boat ramp is within 1 mile of the property.

Cottage overlooking the bay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Mark's Cottage! Equipped with everything one would need. Comfy, and close to many activities and points of interest in beautiful Maine. Thank you so much for opening up this Gem for others to enjoy.

Nice cottage but needs refurbishing.

  • 3 of 5

Cottage is well located. The kitchen is up-to-date and has anything one might need. Furniture in living areas is tired or stained and in some cases needs replacing. One mattress absolutely needs to be replaced. The dryer in the basement is on its last legs; although, it does work. The basement stairs have no railing, and trying to walk down with a basket of laundry could be dangerous.

Owner's Response: Thanks to John and his family for staying at the Cottage and providing feedback! As this is the first review less than a 4 rating that the cottage has ever received, I will add some comments. The furnishings are older yet comfortable and the dryer does have a squeaky wheel but is totally functional. If you are looking for a rental with more emphasis on the interior finish and new, upscale furnishings, the Cottage may not be the right spot for you! The Cottage aims to bring the beauty of Maine inside with it's large picture frame windows and location on the water while providing comfort and functionality at a price that allows you to still sample all the local restaurants. The photos provide an accurate representation of the interior and the furnishings. Thank you!

Very pretty place with the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

We spent a couple of nights at the cottage and very much enjoyed it. The pictures are very accurate and the house is nicely furnished. Everywhere you turned there was a window with a beautiful view. We fixed dinner at home both evening and were really pleased to find such a well equipped kitchen. Having just one small bathroom upstairs was a bit of a challenge but we managed. I was particularly grateful to Mark who saved my Kindle for me - I left it behind and after a frantic call, he found it and quickly sent it back. Definitely above and beyond.

An Attractive Home Complete with Fresh Clams

  • 5 of 5

We were in the market for something simple and easy. Our stay was only a prelude to the longer stay coming up. We sprang for more space, amenities, and a view nevertheless. After all, why skimp on the Maine thing? We were not disappointed. The house provided for all of our needs, and the neighbor a few houses away supplied the clams. He had been digging the Saturday morning we were there, and had trouble unloading his bountiful harvest. It worked for us.

Quiet weekend!

  • 4 of 5

In this cute house, expectations are everything. If you are expecting a pristine, new, hotel-type property that is not lived in by the owners then this house is NOT it! If you enjoy personal family books, photos, memorabilia and attention---then this is your place! This is actually an older cottage that has the charm, smell and details of an old house----but it has been updated with a comfortable kitchen and bathroom and bedrooms that we enjoyed. Access to the water is really non-existence if that is your thing, although you can see it from the windows. The furniture needs updating for sure but we really didn't notice because we had so much fun playing games left in the closet. Thank you Mark, for you homey place for our vacation.
