Cozy is a little gem in Harpswell, Maine
We were looking for a small, waterfront cottage near Bath, and we found it in Cozy. Private, comfortable, and, just a short drive to the pleasures of the quaint town of Harpswell. From the porch we watched 22 species of wildlife: bald eagles, herons, seals, porpoises. There are nearby neighbors but all was quiet and restful. The hosts were very helpful and gracious. Nearby renters stopped by one day to ask how we found this sweet house! Cozy was the perfect vacation retreat.
Owners John and Karen are driven to ensure a perfect stay for their guests. The well appointed & comfortable cottage, picturesque location and proximity to great restaurants, shops and the natural beauty of Harpswell and it's vicinity make for a fantastic vacation. This is our 4th stay at Cozy and we have 3 more scheduled.
Property was exactly as advertised. We stayed in lofty cabin which was well laid out and well-appointed. Check in with the lockbox was super easy. The two cabins make for an ideal setup for two families who want time together, yet the chance to also be on their own. Love having the little dock between the two. Great communication with the owners though we really did not need any support as everything was in place
Thank you Laurence for taking the time to write a review we greatly appreciate it. It was a pleasure to host you and your family for your trip. We would love it if he could return again when the weather is a bit nicer! Have a wonderful summer and a safe and healthy year.

Charming, cozy cottage
Cozy is aptly named, as it was cozy and comfortable. It was the perfect space for a quiet getaway. It's location is lovely, and the view of the water was just what I was hoping for. The kitchen was well stocked with tools, the furnishings were just right and the bed was great. Although there were other houses nearby, the trees and water made the cottage feel solitary, and listening to the boats and the birds on the water was peaceful. I would stay here again without a second thought.
A beautiful setting and definitely a cozy little cabin.
We did a lot of sightseeing in the midcoastal area. It reminds me of Puget Sound back home where I grew up. We loved the Maritime Museum and Down East to Acadia National Park.
Quiet, cozy, great sleep!
Everything was wonderful. A couple things you should know...there is no washer and dryer in Cozy so couldn't wash linens as stated to get refund. No lobster tools to crack them to go with lobster pot provided so we improvise. No gear for fishing poles and no lobster trap at dock. This place is truly a gem all in all. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for seclusion, peaceful sleep, and located close to islands. My husband said it was all he wanted in a place to stay for our return to Maine.
We are so happy that you had a good time at cozy. Cozy does not have a washer and dryer as is noted in the description. I think you might've been looking at our other cottage and confuse them. No worries! We wish you would've let us know about the lobster crackers as we could have replaced them. We fully stocked the cottage every spring and the crackers disappear... were pretty sure they spring legs and walk away:) There is some fishing equipment in the shed that anyone can use. We encourage our guest to let us know if there's anything missing in the cottage and we can try to replace it while you are there. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review and we hope you can return again in the future

Harpswell is the unspoiled coastal community that is accessible by way of the beautiful Bowdoin College town of Brunswick. Harpswell is a unique coastal community which recently celebrated its 250th birthday. For over 100 years Harpswell has been a mecca for vacationers seeking a saltwater environment, a serene way of life, and an abundance of natural beauty. Its 216 miles of coastline consists of Harpswell Neck, the three large islands of
Sebascodegan (Great Island), Orr’s, and Bailey, which are connected by bridges, the most notable being The Cribstone Bridge, and a scattering of over 200 smaller islands accessible only by boat. With some of the few remaining working harbors on the Maine coast, it offers an authenticity of which we are proud.
