Wonderful location!! Harborside with a view.
We very much enjoyed our time at this lovely little cottage. Our hosts were very helpful, and we appreciated the attention to small details that made cooking easier (some spices, saran and foil, extra containers, a clam knife, big pots for steamers and lobster, and a propane grill), and suggestions for hiking, shopping and dining. They even had a collection of paperbacks, games and puzzles in case of a rainy day. They helped us get local oysters, clams and lobsters. We found mussels and snails at low tide.
It was fun to see the boats come in and out and most of all to have a waterfront spot and big screened in porch. The floors and paint had recently been redone so it felt extra fresh and clean. A lovely long weekend for us.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are especially pleased that you enjoyed your visit. We truly feel that Five Islands is a little slice of heaven which we love to share! Come back again soon!
The location, overlooking the magnificent harbor watching the lobster boats coming and going was spectacular. The cottage is so close to the water you feel like you're on a boat. The only problem is the very disturbing, incessant noise from the adjacent dock which makes it difficult to entirely enjoy the experience, especially if you're looking forward to sitting on the porch in peace and quiet, there isn't any. I think it's only fair to know what to expect.
We are so sorry you were disappointed in your stay. It is a working waterfront, with all of the comings and goings of the community which makes for a special experience, albeit not necessarily a quiet and serene visit. The community of Five Islands is a wonderful way to experience life on the coast of Maine!
Wonderful little cottage! If you want to get a taste of a Maine working waterfront, this is it!
Wake up to the sounds of the gulls and lobster boats going out to get their catch! Bring your pleasure boat and join the fun! Spectacular sunsets viewed from a screened in porch. Where nature and work thrive together! Truly an amazing experience! Let's not forget the General Store and the 5 Islands Lobster Company with plenty of outdoor seating for your lobster feed! All within walking distance. I'll be back!
Thanks so much for taking the time to review our cottage. We are so pleased you had a wonderful time. We love sharing Five Islands. It is a very special place. We would love to welcome you back!
best location and people!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! This place was amazing, watching the lobster boats come and go, eating lobster rolls from The Lobster Co.that is 1000ft away, and so many other things too numerous to name we will carry memories with us for the rest of our lives. I hope to come back again next year. If you want to experience Maine this is the place. The screened in porch is where we spent hours with a pair of binoculars and we even saw two seals in the harbor right in front of the cottage that was amazing. Owners were very friendly and quick to answer any questions or address any concerns. The view from the front bedroom was so beautiful and relaxing, my concern is the steep stairs to get up to the bedrooms, not for the mobility challenged. Please do yourself a favor and come here just once in your life, you wont regret it.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the wonderful review. Five Islands is indeed a little slice of heaven and our new screened in porch is a perfect place to enjoy the scenery. We hope to see you next year!
