Updated waterfront cottage w/private deck, gas grill & dock access

Beautifully situated on beautiful Basin Cove, this peaceful cottage is ideal for outdoor living with an abundance of surrounding wildlife to enjoy. The location is the perfect setting for sunset gazing from your deck, swimming, kayaking or paddleboarding. Inside, you'll find bedroom windows with water views and a finished daylight basement with a separate guest room.

What's nearby:
You will only be a short drive (paddle or sail) from greater Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. You can explore the region's seafaring history at the Maine Maritime Museum only 20 miles away. For a day trip, head to downtown Portland and check out some of the local cuisine at The Honey Paw and Eventide Oyster Co. You can also find oceanfront dining a short drive away (less than 2 miles), the Dolphin Marina Restaurant, in case you're looking for upscale dining, and Erika's Seafood, if you're looking for more casual dining environment. Are you an outdoor enthusiast? Then make sure to visit the hiking trails right behind the property on the Harpswell Land trust and many more trails locally.

Second time staying here :) Love the relaxing views, comfy beds, guesthouse and fully stocked kitchen.

The deck is the highlight of this house! We were out there most of the time. The home is adorable and comfortable, but the photos are a little misleading and need updating. The rooms upstairs are pretty tiny and the queen bed is located in a side area off the dining room, separated by a screen. So, that was a little bit of a surprise. With that being said, I would still rent again for the location alone! We did a few day trips to a couple of the other points and the restaurants just up the road are fantastic. We watched an amazing sunset from The Dolphin. Great time! Gorgeous area.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests

This was my second stay at this property on Basin Cove. I loved it so much the first time, I had to return with my new husband. This lovely, little cottage is situated at the back of the cove and provides stunning sunsets. It is very clean and the bathroom has recently been redesigned and is very cool. This cottage is very close to many walking trails and the Giant's Stairs.
Brunswick and Freeport are not too far away should you need groceries or care to do a little shopping. You can't go wrong if you rent this property. It is just perfect!

Wonderful views of bay from porch, great for kayaking, house well equipped for our stay. Great experience!

Beautiful cove views from virtually every corner of the house and wraparound deck. The dock access is great for the rare moment when the tide is actually high enough to reach it (which happened all of once during our stay). Nice updated bathroom and extremely comfortable couches and bed on the main floor. Charming, private, and relaxing. Would definitely stay again.

Cute house, enough room for kids (basement, garage apartment , yard).

The cottage amenities were perfect. We were very comfortable and loved the deck! This cottage is quaint, has everything you need, and then some. The side guest house was perfect! We would happily visit again!

We loved absolutely everything! The cottage is decorated with top notch furniture. The kitchen had it all. The view? The fresh lobster from Erica’s Seafood less than 2-miles away? The deck? All priceless.
We will be back next year! Thank YOU!

The location and view were top notch. The place itself was roomy and cozy at the same time, we had everything we needed to enjoy every second with friends and family. This is what people expect when they say I'm going to Maine. I would go there again when my next trip comes up to return to Maine.
