About George or Nancy Kinser/Owners

We love this area of Maine and live about 20 minutes away. We enjoy boating and hiking and spending time exploring Mid-coast Maine.

George or Nancy Kinser/Owners purchased this cottage in 2006

Why George or Nancy Kinser/Owners chose Brunswick

It encompasses all Maine has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

Right on the New Meadows River with a dock and deck to sit and watch the wildlife. Fishing is great off the dock. It is near Brunswick with the Bowdoin campus and museums , Bath with the Maine Maritime Musuem, Freeport with many outlets, Boothbay with whale watching trips, and Mt Dessert with Acadia National Park - all within driving distance

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed for just over 2 months in 2007 during our transition from our move from California to Maine. This is an ideal cottage if you want to relax and enjoy the scenic view for a few days, a few weeks, or longer! The location is favorable to access the many activities and attractions of mid-coast Maine - ie - Bailey Island, Orr's Island, Bath, the Maine Maritime Museum, Freeport and LL Bean and many others. The cottage is clean, comfortable, and cozy. My husband and I highly recommend this cottage. Recommended for age 55+, adventure seekers, girls getaway, sight seeing, and romantic getaways.

Wonderful, peaceful cottage on the New Meadows river in Brunswick, ME!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to relax, fish or swim off the dock, or just sit on the deck and read or watch the wildlife.

Shopping in Freeport is 20 minutes away. Visit Brunswick - home of Bowdoin college or Bath, home of the wonderful Maine Maritime museum.

Great Property, Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this property. It was perfect for our family with small children. It was well equipped and comfortable. It was quiet and relaxing with incredible views. The deck was amazing. We couldn't wait to get up every morning to enjoy the view. The owners were very nice and a pleasure to work with. We were sad to leave and can't wait to go back.

Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Kinser cottage. It was everything we hoped for and more! A roomy cottage with beautiful indoor and outdoor space with a deck overlooking the dock right on the water. Even our teenagers loved it.

Beautiful spot with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay here. The owners are lovely and helpful, the rooms are a good size for a cottage, the kitchen is well-equipped and the place has a lovely authentic Maine feel. The deck and the dock were great for entertaining. We hope to be back next year.

Fall Wonder

  • 5 of 5

The Kinser Cottage is terrific. It was pleasent, cosy, and functional. The morning sunrise views from the deck were incomparable. If you want peace and solitude and great views this is the place. Michel Hersen
