Need more room? Three Seas and John’s Cottage are connected via the expanse of lawn. Though rented as separate units, they make for a fun extension of one another when rented together! Be sure to ask your reservationist for details!

Some items require a weekly fee. So bring your own kayaks or canoes, or rent locally, and explore the amazing rocky coastline. The dock & float is deep enough to launch a smallish sail boat.

This two-story, five-bedroom cottage is quintessential Maine and has been in the same family for generations! The river rock fireplace and craftsman style ceiling, hardwood floors and wrap-around porch were all designed to be comfortable, inviting and summery!

Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manager their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make your vacation perfect!
