We had four adults and five children and there was plenty of room for all. The house was very clean and well equipped. The property manager let us know he was there for us for any needs (though we didn't have any reason to call him) The modern upgrades made to this older cottage were beautifully designed. The fire pit in the back yard was ready to be lit, perfectly stacked with wood and paper. The only things missing for us were wine glasses. (there was 1) We happen to be wine drinkers but the lack of glasses was no big deal...we adapted. The neighbor's trees seem to have grown in a bit since the water view pictures were taken but you could still see the water and the fresh sea air was all around us. The neighborhood is friendly and very nice to walk around in. Swimming at the local cove (only a mile) was like having a private sandy beach and Popham Beach was only a 10 minute drive. We brought our bikes but the area is quite hilly so be prepared to do some pedaling. I recommend kayaking - we all did and it was the highlight of the trip. Thank you for a great vacation, we would absolutely return to this house.
My husband and I stayed at the Casco Bay Cottage the third week of October last year. We wanted the romantic experience of a Maine cottage in a small town in the off season. Finding this cottage was exactly what we were looking for and more! It was very nice, yet also very cozy and homey feeling. And by cozy, I DO NOT mean small. It was very roomy, but very warm, inviting and comfortable as well. We had a wonderful Maine vacation kayaking the bays, exploring hiking trails and visiting neighboring towns with beautiful harbors and lighthouses.
What could have made this trip any better? A great property owner who was very easy to work with and accommodating of our needs!! And then there was the onsite caretaker, Bill, who was so very helpful and never made us feel as though we were a burden although we pestered him constantly! :)
When it was time to go we drove away with one thought on our minds....when can be make it back??!!
