The 'Lobsterman's Catch' cottage is a 3 bedroom cottage resting in a tiny fisherman's village on Orrs Island, one of the three islands located in beautiful East Harpswell, Maine.

The cottage has a large kitchen open to the dinner table that sits 6. Stools line up the large kitchen island. Included is a separate breakfast area that sits 4.

The cottage has a lower circular driveway that fits up to 4 cars. There is also a convenient driveway to the side of the cottage that makes it easy to unload luggage and groceries.

The cottage is yards away from Lowell's Cove, where you can swim, explore, and enjoy the beauty of what Maine has to offer. Tote your canoe or kayaks down to the cove or just sit and relax on the front porch swing. Scenic Lowell's Cove has charming little fish houses and has an open view to the ocean. Large yard, great for kids and pets to run around and play.

You can also visit the many landmarks which include, The Cribstone Bridge, The Giant Staircase, and Lands End Gift Shop. It is also within a short driving distance to other attractions such as L.L Bean, Bowdoine College, Popham Beach and Portland, Maine.

This was our third year staying at The Lobster House. We did our share to support the lobster fishermen of Maine by including lobster in almost every meal. The house is the best. Our golden retriever is at home there. The kitchen is well stocked. The beds are very comfortable. The porch is wonderful overlooking the cove. We will be back again.

Clean and adorable island

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying on this island. The grocery store is 1/2 hour or more away so I would love if there were more trash bags and tp and laundry detergent. Place was clean and cute... it is not on or close to water if that matters. Owners were very nice prior to our arrival. Fresh lobster is beyond the best and price is so cheap. This may be throughout the area however the water is on rusty side. The only downfall is there is a driveway that has a ditch at the bottom... so watch out when you back out!!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We customarily leave 2 kitchen trash bags, 2 large black trash bags, two rolls of toilet tissue. There are very few rentals on the island that do that. We do not leave laundry detergent, don't know of any rental that does. There is a new filtration system on the property, but I totally agree with you, the water on the island is a little rusty. Being from Texas, I just can't get used to that. New culverts were put in place all over the Island, we were surprised at the location. Our house is about 100 yards from the open ocean cove. Walking distance to the water is one minute. Orr's Island is beautiful, I'm glad your tummies enjoyed the wonderful lobster.

Wedding Weekend

The Lobsterman's Catch was the perfect location for our friends Wedding. From the beginning, Isis was very accommodating. She was quick to answer my questions and concerns and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The house was very welcoming, tidy, clean and charming. I highly recommend! Thank you Isis!

My family and I ( six in total along with our rather large dog and my daughter's boyfreind for a portion of our stay) were able to rent the home last minute. Best thing that could of happened. Orr's Island was a paradise. Quiet and peaceful. We kayaked every day to get morning coffee and ice tea about a half hour away. Swam every day accross the street and around the corner at the little beach. Jumped off the dock at high tide. Took George (our dog) for long walks at nearby trails along the water. Had a lobster bake for seven and had plenty of room in the dining room. Well equipped kitchen as well. Portland was about a half an hour drive and we made the trip for a nice night out. Brunswick is about fifteen to twenty minutes away (Bowdoin College town) nice restaurants etc. All in all a great vacation. Just what the doctor ordered.
