Simply the best

5 of 5
My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at Sunset Point for part of our honeymoon. We stayed a week and enjoyed every second. The views and the relaxing ambience were just what we expected. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. We decided to sleep in the living room and not one of the two bedrooms. We wanted to take full advantage of the fireplace and views of the mountain (very romantic setting).The drive to downtown was quick and the beautiful scenes of nearby hikes, bike rides and canoe trips were just a few minutes away. We took advantage of the fresh lobster delivery offered and had our very first taste of fresh Maine lobster in the comforts of the cottage(reasonably priced). Terri and Joe were great with everything. We truly had a great time. One thing to watch out for when driving to the cottage for the first time is to remember to drive all the way to the top of the mt. The first cottage on the left is not sunset pt. (woops) We can't wait to go back and enjoy more of sunset point cottage! Make sure to take advantage of the books in the cottage showing all the activities available. We really enjoyed the nearby hikes. Thanks again Terri and Joe!
