About Barbara Plummer
My husband and I moved to Mid-coast Maine from the Washington My husband and I moved to Maine from Northern Virgina when he retired from the military. I was born in DC and lived in the DC area all my life never feeling like I was in the right place. All of that changed when we left the rat race and moved to the small community of Bayside. In the village of Bayside the little cottages have names so we started thinking of names for our property and little cottage. Shortly after moving in I was standing at the window marveling at the view and a Bald Eagle landed in a tree in our front yard which overlooks Penobscot Bay. So the name Eagle's Landing became official. And since the cottage overlooks Kelly Cove we named it Cove Cottage. In 20 years this wonderful place I call home has never failed to disappoint.
Barbara Plummer purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Barbara Plummer chose Northport
My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful, unique, waterfront property when we first saw it because of the incredible view and access to Penobscot Bay. The house and cottage needed some TLC which we have done over the years but the location needed no improvement.
What makes this Cottage unique
What I love most is the beautiful, peaceful setting. Feels very private but also not isolated. From sunrise to sunset it always offers opportunities to reflect on the wonders of creation and energize your soul .
Charming cottage on a cove
My husband and I stayed at the cottage for most of March and all of April. We liked the looks of the place, the five-star reviews and the freedom to bring our two dogs. Our experience proved much better than we could have imagined. If we could give the cottage 10 stars, we would. It is an ideal Midcoast location, right on a cove and in a quaint bayside community, just minutes from Belfast. The gracious owner of the property couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. She gave us our privacy but was always available when we had questions. The cottage is on two floors, with a half-spiral wooden staircase, so we found we had to slow down and maneuver carefully. The downstairs kitchen was spacious and well-stocked with pots, pans and silverware. The place was completely outfitted, down to liquid soap, paper napkins and nice towels. Did I mention the sunrises over the water? Spectacular. And at low tide we took walks with our dogs on the rocky beach. Truly praiseworthy.
Thank you Marcia for your kind words. I enjoyed having you and David along with your sweet dogs next door in the cottage as “neighbors “ for 6 weeks this past winter very much.
Very nice cottage and location.
The cottage is very cozy, clean, and comfortable. Barbara is very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay.
Lovely, quiet place on the water—
Lovely, quiet place to spend vacation, our third year. Lots of good restaurants and shopping nearby. You can eat in and enjoy the deck overlooking the the water. Kick back and enjoy the sound of loons and lapping waves. Great hospitality from our host.
Eagles Landing is perfection.
Waking up every morning to,an ocean view is serene and calming. The grounds have beautiful perennial gardens and flowers. Barbara is a wonderful hostess and provides every possible amenity. Close to Belfast for everyday needs plus just off Route 1 so easy access to many picturesque towns. Listening to the tide changes, seeing eagles, incredible sunrises, delicious blueberry stand close by, loons, wild turkeys, a cove to explore when the tide is low, views of islands across the Penobscot bay, and so much more. We left this morning and I miss it.
This cottage is absolutely adorable!!
When we first drove up the driveway the property was immaculate.The gardens were beautiful.We were met by the owner Barbera and she was helpful with suggestions for things to do. Our cottage was just the right size for my husband and our German Shepherd. The views of the beach were very relaxing. Everything was just perfect.we plan on returning very soon.
This cottage is perfect!
Wonderful location and house! Barbara is a great host that ensures you have everything you need. The location is centrally located so you are able to visit lots of areas in Maine (if you choose), but it is such a beautiful property you may choose to just relax, take in the view and walk the beach!
