Refreshing and relaxing

Oh this cottage is wonderful!!!! We were all sad to leave! The owners have thought of everything and the views are beyond gorgeous. Our family lives to walk and we enjoyed many long walks around Castine and the beach. Great home for families and also perfect for a couple's get away! You won't be disappointed!!!

Quiet retreat in a peaceful orchard

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was very peaceful and much needed. The apple trees surrounding the house created a lovely setting and made wonderful pies! The house was clean and comfortable for the most part especially the beds. We did find the furniture not to be comfortable and a bit outdated. However over all we had a wonderful stay and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Shirley, the heirloom apples make great pies and fried apples with cinnamon. Fall is a wonderful time to visit Castine and explore our area during foliage season. Constance

Charming and comfortable accomidation and outdoor patio. Beatiful view across an inlet.

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious and tastefully furnished. The kitchen excellently equipped and bathrooms quite functional. The property is beautifully located facing the waterfront. Outdoor living on a large patio and in an Apple orchard is quite extraordinary. The location is central to many attractions of the area.

The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities.

The property was clean and well-maintained.

The owner provided excellent customer service.

I would recommend this property to your friends or relatives.

Restaurants of a great variety is available in the area for different taste. Besides the house is well equipped for home cooking or outdoor grilling.

Attractions for people with various interests and activities like golfing can be reached within comfortable distances.
