My family and I spent 2 weeks at this stunning location in July. I had very high hopes for this property and, to our delight, they were surpassed. George was excellent to work with throughout the process answering all questions and providing helpful cottage and location information. If you are looking for peaceful, oceanfront privacy this cottage cannot be beaten. The cottage has all the amenities anyone vacationing on the ocean in Maine could ever want. The fire pit, screen porch, outside dining table, hammock and multiple grills were all enjoyed. We had our 2 younger children with us and to see them unplug (although cell service was excellent) for 2 weeks was a dream come true. We had our own private sand beach with both a cove and ocean side with its own private island at the end! The outdoor fun and activities (clamming delicious) right outside the door were endless. The cottage was at once modern and timeless while being both cozy and roomy. We highly recommend Scovil's as a quintessential Maine dining experience (we went 5 times for breakfast) and be sure to walk the nearby Woodworth Preserve. By the way, because of its location within Carrying Cove, the water was much, much warmer than surrounding water temperatures and very often quite pleasant for swimming. Make sure to bring water shoes and buy or borrow a kayak if possible. Boating in the Cove was simple and beautiful. Also, we lost count of the number of deer we saw, clams we dug up for lunch, times we saw the porcupines and Bald Eagles and lost track of time. Lastly, the stars at night (we were very lucky to have mostly cloud free days) were like a blanket of light. Incredibly beautiful and worth hours of gazing.
If you are looking for a Maine (or anywhere really) Ocean Front vacation to slow down and relax there is not a better place than Ripley Neck Cottage. Thank you George
