These three cottages, available for rental as single units or all together, are directly on the shore of Frenchman Bay, Maine.
In the mornings, you can watch loons and lobstermen from the porches as morning fog dissipates; in the evening, the sun turns the sky brilliant colors while the tide changes. You can be as active and "touristy" as you like, or just sit and enjoy this quiet corner of Maine.
In addition to the natural attractions near the Cottages, car trips can easily be made to Acadia National Park, Schoodic Point, Bar Harbor, and other towns along the coast. There are historic houses and forts within daytrip distance.
The musically inclined can attend the Sunday and Wednesday concerts at the Pierre Monteux Memorial Conductor's School. People who like to eat will be enchanted by several excellent restaurants nearby, as well as traditional Maine lobster-cooking shacks.
Boat rentals, fishing excursion companies, and golf courses are located in nearby towns. Some of our guests have made arrangements for rental kayaks to be delivered to their cottage for use while they are here.
Each building is fully furnished, but you must bring your own linens (sheets, towels, etc).
Our season runs from June 15 - September 15; most folks reserve in March for the coming summer.
Saturday-to-Saturday rates are $905 per week, which includes the 9% state rentals tax, for the summer of 2017.
Reduced rates are available for those renting a month or more, and for rentals after the third week of August. We request one half of the total rental charge when a definite reservation is made, and the remainder on or before arrival. Cancellations must be made one month prior to the reserved date if the deposit is to be refunded. The cottages usually are rented from Saturday to Saturday, but the day is flexible if there is no conflict with other reservations.
