Relaxing, comfortable, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week on Great Diamond. The ferry was convienient and we had a great mix of relaxation on the island, time in Portland, and a day in Acadia. Great property! Highly recommend.

Dreamy New England Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Woodbury Cottage couldn't have been more idyllic and relaxing. Visiting Maine during peak fall foliage has been a bucket list item for us, and I decided to surprise my husband with this mini vaca to celebrate our 15-year wedding anniversary. So glad I did! This home is a true gem and a must-do if you're visiting Portland. It's on an island (let me say that again...it's on an island!), oozing with New England charm, impeccably decorated, and just a short ferry ride to the mainland.

During our stay, the island was extremely quiet and peaceful since most things shut down by Columbus Day, but we welcomed that. We love the crisp, cool weather, and welcomed the chance to unplug. Although relaxed, this stay most definitely packed in the adventure. Everything was a first for us...first stay on an island, first ferry ride, first water taxi, first lobster boil...and we'll never forget it.

Every convenience had been thought of, and Jason (owner/manager) was so accommodating and helpful! He took the time to provide recommendations to try during our stay, including fresh lobster from a local fisherman and having groceries delivered by ferry. All necessary amenities were provided along with the basic pantry items for cooking.

When we return, we plan to go just before Columbus Day to take advantage of more shops and activities in Portland, but we were thrilled with our stay. The locals on Great Diamond Island were extremely kind and welcoming, and we just can't wait to go back.

Best. Trip. Ever.

I had such a good time at the Woodbury Cottage. It's a beautiful house, and was well equipped with everything we needed. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

Wonderful cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long Labor Day Weekend on Great Diamond Island - what a treat! This cottage is absolutely adorable and fully stocked with everything you can imagine - and so nice not to have to bring linens. Jason, the owner, is an incredible host who made us feel right at home with a lovely welcome basket filled with all kinds of treats. The view from the front porch is stunning and we so enjoyed watching all the activity on the water. We brought three teenagers who spent their days swimming, and playing basketball and tennis...they also took the ferry to Portland for one afternoon. We took Jason's advice and had lobsters delivered right to our door for our last evening on the Island. We would strongly recommend this cottage and hope to return next year! Truly a very special place.

A true 'Maine style Cottage'

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with a couple from the west coast visiting Maine for the first time. They occupied the upstairs suite as we referred to it , while my husband and I took the downstairs. Another couple visiting two nights occupied the third bedroom downstairs. Just note these rooms are aimed at the ' light traveler '. This is a true Maine style cottage. Very impressive homeowner and punctual in responding. Thankfully there was no TV so we watched the boat traffic all day. As two couples traveling from the DC and San Francisco areas, this was a real treat ! We parked our car for the week and rented a locally built 'Foggcraft' in Portland. Pack accordingly as there is no washer or dryer. Kitchen well stocked with spices , oils and wonderful lobster dinner accessories. Love the red plastic trays. Nice white fluffy towels . The " things I forgot " Basket came in handy as I forgot a lot. Great walking Island. So glad we didn't get kicked off and look forward to returning next year! It was perfect. Thank you Jason !

The best of everything

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for two families to relax and unwind with plenty of room for everyone...the kids commandeered the large upstairs room and couldn't have been happier. Our families took advantage of shell collecting, swimming, long

walks, the beach on Long Island, and the restaurants in Portland, all just an easy walk or ferry ride away. Living car free made the vacation extra special and we look forward to returning. How lucky for us that the thoughtful and attentive owners are willing to share the Woodbury Cottage through VRBO!
