A classic Maine summer cottage located on the coast in Friendship, a small fishing village known for its lobsters! We prefer to rent for a full week. Lesser rental duration available. Please contact us for details. We DO want to rent to you!
The cottage is a classic Maine summer cottage with kitchen, bathroom and shower, living/dining room, three bedrooms upstairs that can sleep four. We have 265' of ocean frontage, accessible by stairway to the shore. There is a sandy/cobblestone beach just one minute walk around the corner. Bring or rent kayaks from in town and enjoy the beauty of Friendship Harbor.
You will have the entire cottage to yourselves. You can park right in front of it. There is a deck with table, chairs and large sun umbrella.
Dave Jones, brother of listing host Peter Jones, will be at the main house, just next door to the cottage. He will be able to answer any questions and help you with any needs that may arise. You may also call Peter at home in Camden, Maine at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for anything else.
When you book your rental, we will send you full details on how to get to the cottage, what to expect, places to get supplies and all the wonderful things to do along the coast of Maine, all within a day's drive. We supply made up beds, towels, full kitchen utensils. Spend a week on the coast of Maine for a memory to last you a lifetime!
If you cook lobsters, be SURE to clean up thoroughly afterwards. Spilled lobster juices can be horrendously odorous and unpleasant. Think of how it would be if the previous renter didn't clean up for you!! Please put shells in the garage garbage cans, NOT in the house garbage can. Expand for more info below....
We prefer that you don't have pets, but if you do insist, please be sure they are well-behaved. By that, we mean that dogs are not aggressive nor bark a lot. Everyone says their pets are well-behaved and most of them are. However, dogs sometimes don't get the message and have been left in the house, only to try and scratch their way out through the door around the handle. Please be responsible for your own pet's behavior.
NO SMOKING in the cottage!!
I am a self-employed potter and photographer and love traveling the country for fine art shows and photographing in caves, mostly in New Mexico (47 years now....). The place we rent is owned by me and my brother through inheritance, but it has been in our family since 1948. It's a lovely three bedroom cottage on our oceanfront property. Enjoy it as we have for all these years!!
