This is truly the way a Maine vacation should be. This wonderful bright and sunny 4 bedroom cottage with incredible views of Penobscot Bay offers a private sandy beach perfect for a lobster/clam bake,and a great yard for playing games. You can easily walk to the abutting town park, grocery store, shopping, cafes, museum and you are just 2.5 miles from Moose Point State Park. Acadia National Park is about 1.5 hours away, Belfast, is 10 minutes and Camden/Rockland 30-45 minutes. This cottage is nicely equipped to ensure a relaxing vacation.

We have categorized this property as having or being near a beach. More specifically for this property - As a part of the property there is a small beach at the end of the yard. The beach is great for kids, swimming and relaxing. It abuts a public beach and some visitors may also be seen along the shore. Please keep in mind that beaches in this part of Maine are more rocky than sandy and water shoes may be necessary. The water access is a bit rocky but great for launching kayaks and beachcombing. Swimming may require water shoes and awareness of tides. Pictures on the website show the condition of the waters edge.

The on the water in Maine team has always been very easy to work with and very responsive to any needs we may have. This year the yard was very long and had not been mowed for a long time. We reached out to the team and they had someone out there to take care of it within a day.
Our favorite feature has always been the outside, especially the yard and beach. It is a great location for the kids.

We only had brief contact as everything was online and even the check-in/check-out process was automated.
We had a great stay at the property and it was fully stocked with anything we needed. Our favorite parts were the yard, access to the water, and park.

NOTHING beats the backyard with its amazing water view and private beach access. Waking up and looking out the windows to that gorgeous view will be something I never forget. Being right next to a park with a playground was a hit with our youngest son.

"On the water in Maine" is a very professional agency that maintains its avalability during your stay.The cottage was very clean and nicely equipped.
The location of this property was ideal for our visit Acadia National Park.There is a quiet solitude and a perfect access to the beach....a definite plus after a day of hiking and sightseeing.Searsport is a very charming small coastal town.On rainy days we visited the Owls Head museums and the Penobscot Museum and the shops in Camden and Bar Harbor.The bathroom is small but adequate with only a small shower.
