Nothing Missing​ Here.

  • 5 of 5

We had only said a million times, "What a great place this is" , and it was. Steps away from a wonderland in the water. The life of the cove was evident with the day's tides. The cabin could not have been more comfortable. Clean well appointed comfortable rooms, well supplied kitchen. Hoping to return someday to make more memories. Thanks to Vanessa and Paul

Late season vacation

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is at a beautiful site. The location is good for taking day

trips to see some amazing scenery. We spent five days essentially

off the grid and loved it. No TV so we had a wonderful break from

network news overload. We had a NOAA Weather Radio and had

good reception otherwise lived technology free.

Since we were traveling technology free we found it difficult to find our

way around at first. A problem was that some restaurants and parks were beginning to close for the season. Also, a bridge was being replaced on 73 blocking the backway to South Thomason and

Rockland. We eventually found a local map...old fashion paper variety... at the General Store at Port Clyde. It would have been nice to find

some local information such as restaurant menus and locations at the cottage.

Scheduling our stay at the cottage was easy to do with Vanessa

and the VRBO website. We are happy with our experience.

Beautiful Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an incredible time staying here for our first Anniversary! The cottage is in an absolutely beautiful location and truly feels like you have your own cove. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats each morning and the harbor view as the sun rises is beautiful. The location is great, offering plenty of privacy while still offering proximity to nearby towns and dining/shopping/hiking etc... We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone!

The setting was very peaceful. Nothing like the sights & smell of the Maine coast.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was perfect for our short stay. Great alternative to a hotel room. Quiet and private, had everything we needed. Owner was very helpful in sharing local information on eateries and sites.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was everything we wanted it to be. Cozy, well stocked and the BIG lobster pot was a bonus. We explored the area and visted Mr. Morse down the road for all the fresh lobster we could eat. Our only regret is that we could not have stayed longer. I could have easily spent 2weeks at the cabin and still not had enough of the beautiful view of the cove. Watching thei tide come in and out was amazing. We seen lots of different birds, many we do not get to see here in Michigan. Kingfishers, terns, blue herons, and many more. It is great that Vanessa allows pets, Maggie had her nose to the ground and ears up wondering was was making all the noise in the woods. It is close to everything, but tucked into the woods for a sense of privacy. If we ever end out that way again I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and would recommend this cabin to any of my friends or family. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
