    About this property

    "the Honeymoon Cottage" - Just a Short Walk to the Cove

    Historic cottage in Castine
    Newly renovated cottage with 4 bedrooms. Two bathrooms and laundry. Living dining areas with bamboo floors. Unique custom furniture. Phone, cable TV, and wireless high speed internet included. There is a large deck attached to the rear of the house. Half is open for loads of sunshine and half is covered and screened for solid comfort. Early breakfasts or sunset dinners are to be enjoyed in the screened porch. Gas grill is supplied. Large back yard with fire pit (firewood provided) that backs up to twenty-five acres of Maine woods. A short walk through the woods takes you down to the tidal stream and countless adventures. Down the road and across brings you to Morse's cove, and the Penobscot river. The Webster family ran schooners and fishing boats from here in the late 1800's. The old boat house is now the family cabin. Castine and the surrounding area is steeped in history. The village is a perfect New England village featuring a working harbor, a restored lighthouse, a natural history museum, the oldest continually running post office in the country, along with countless other attractions. From fine dining to the best Lobster rolls around you can find it all in the village. From sailing in the bay to laying on Back Shore Beach to visiting the many revolutionary forts, you will be kept busy. Mount Desert Island is only an hour away and the beauty of Acadia National Park and the honky-tonk village of Bar Harbor and all the tourist shopping you will ever want. A little closer -- and in a world all their own -- are Deer Isle and the beautiful village of Stonington. Just off shore is Isle au Haute, and another section of Acadia National Park. It is accessible only by Mail boat twice each day. The Honeymoon Cottage is a great centrally-located spot to venture from and, just as important, a great place to rest and relax in and around nature! Come stay with us and enjoy life on the coast of Maine

    5/5 Excellent

      A spacious and lovely located home with an excellent kitchen

      We had a family of 6 adults and two children and a dog. All were well serviced by one of the more exceptional homes that we have stayed in. Lots of room, plenty of hot water with appliances all running well. The kitchen was one of the better kitchens we have used in a rental and as we do a lot of cooking is an important element for factoring our happiness. All the cookware was Cuisinart (!) and all seemed relatively new as well. Well done Paul, our host, who not only presented a terrific home but also had laid in a store of goodies, wine and beer as well. And good stuff too. Who does that? Two full baths with showers made it easy for everyone to relax after the day trips to various lovely towns that were nearby (we visited Castine- only minutes away, Blue Hill, where we shopped, had our fine meal at Arborvine, and Kayaked, was just 25 minutes, Stonington and Bar Harbor were each about an hour). Also a calm and quiet beach which was taken advantage of nearly everyday! Paul always responded quickly whenever I had a question and though we didn't encounter any issues it was nice knowing that he maintained contact. The backyard provided ample space for kids and dogs to run, play some baseball and badminton. The screened in porch was especially good for us for the breakfast and evening meals. Great location, great kitchen and very happy memories.

      5/5 Excellent


        My husband and I were up for a short stay and it was amazing, I cannot say enough good things about Paul and his hospitality. The house is super clean, bed is very comfy, nice towels, house is well equipped and has everything you could possibly need. 5 stars all the way.

        5/5 Excellent

          Loved the house

          We had a wonderful time

          5/5 Excellent

            Lovely and great for vacation

            The owners were so helpful. I was getting married at french's point and this place was just perfect for my family. wish we could have stayed longer and enjoy the great services such as the backyard. would definitely rent again next time we are in maine.

            5/5 Excellent

              We had a great time in Maine!

              First of all, Paul was a fantastic host. Even though we arrrived quite late at night, he was there to greet us and even had the lights on to make sure we found the right spot. His home had everything we needed for our trip. Plenty of room and well stocked. He even had extra firewood delivered mid-week so we could have a campfire in the fire pit. We had a fabulous experience at the Honeymoon Cottage and would highly recommend it.
