Perfect cottage in Harpswell, with spectacular views ~

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is quite perfectly done ! We love it here, and are lucky enough to stay here almost every year. Love the history in the Auburn Colony, and that the Dining Hall is still running. It's handy to have a dinner prepared for your family, just a few steps away ! The cottage is comfortable, and great for a small or large group, we have had both ! With all of the bathrooms, you never have to wait for one !!! Harpswell is a true gem !

Seascape Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an awesome week! The weather was perfect, the location is ideal, the pool was used extensively, and the cottage accommodated the 10 in our group very well. The food in the dining room was exceptional! It was the best baked stuffed lobster we had ever had! We took advantage of the tennis court, enjoyed playing croquet on the lawn, and loved being able to walk and bike to Potts Point and the Dolphin Marina. We look forward to returning next year!
