Beautiful, quaint New England Island retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and fully stocked. The island is lovely and the views from the cottage are beautiful. We liked everything about the property.

The comfort of the beds was outstanding. We rent homes all over the world and I have not had a good night sleep. However, thus cottage was different. We felt cozy, comfortable, pillows were amazing. I slept 9 hours every night. This never happens. I can't wait to go back.

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.
