Description

QUAHOG BAY COTTAGE
Located in Harpswell, Maine just south of Brunswick, this oceanfront contemporary cottage is all about the water.  From the large waterside outdoor living space, to the dock and float (bring or rent a boat) to the beautiful views afforded you from almost every window in the cottage.  Sunrises are spectacular here.  Take that morning cup of coffee and sit out on one of the three open decks and enjoy the sun rising, watching lobster men pull their traps, birds fishing for breakfast and the area waking up to another great day in Maine.  You are but a short drive to Brunswick where you can enjoy a show at the Maine State Music Theater located on the Bowdoin College Campus, or take a ride down to Freeport and explore LL Bean and the many outlets there.  

THE HOUSE
As you enter the cottage into the living/dining/kitchen area, you are struck by the view that is right in front of you and the large windows and sliding doors that bring in all that wonderful natural light.  Sail boats, motor boats, lobster boats, kayaks, birds and more call out to you to come on outside and enjoy.  Also on the first floor is a 3/4 Shower Bathroom and bedroom with a king bed.  Sliders provide the entry to the waterside deck and lower outdoor sitting area. Walk up the stairs into a sitting area with futon for sitting or sleeping and a mini fridge to keep drinks cold.  There are two bedrooms(both double beds) and a combination shower and tub bathroom on this floor as well.  There is a balcony that goes along the water side of this floor that you can enjoy from each bedroom or that middle, family room.  Views of Quahog Bay and North Ledges across the bay from this house will keep you wanting for more.  The sitting area provides a perfect quiet spot for reading and just watching the view.  This cottage has been in the family for several generations, each enjoying the time they spend here.  They are excited about sharing it with you.

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION? 
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 manage 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!

The Boothbay Peninsula is a beautiful region rich in culture, history, all things nautical and of course it’s own unique niche in nature. The area offers ample opportunities for biking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, charters and guided cruises, spas, a championship golf course and country club, mini-golf, bowling, museums, antiquing, hiking and walking trails.

BATH, MAINE
Home to Bath Iron Works and the Maine Maritime Museum, Bath has a history steeped in the Maritimes, nautical and seafaring trades and of course boat building on a grand scale. Located at the mouth of the Kennebec River, Bath is a modern and vital community in Mid-coast Maine that has deep historical roots dating back to the original Popham Colony established in 1607. Enjoy local shops, eateries and galleries downtown and explore Reid State Park, Popham Beach State Park and Kennebec Land Trust Be sure to check the calendar for the Summer music series while you are here!

HARPSWELL, MAINE
The Native Americans who originally inhabited Harpswell were part of the Abenaki. The Abenaki name for Harpswell Neck, then called West Harpswell, was Merriconeag or "quick carrying place", a reference to the narrow peninsula's easy portage. The Abenaki name for Great Island was Erascohegan or Sebascodiggin, which became by the late 1800s Sebascodegan Island. About 1659 Major Nicholas Shapleigh of Kittery, Maine, bought Merriconeag and Sebascodegan Island from the Abenaki, but because of Indian attacks, attempts to settle the area were abandoned until after Dummer's War. The Treaty of 1725 brought a truce, and by 1731 many settlers had returned.[6]
Formerly a part of North Yarmouth, in 1758 the town was incorporated by the Massachusetts General Court and named for Harpswell in Lincolnshire, England, Industries included farming and some shipbuilding, but fishing brought considerable profit. Because of its scenic beauty, Harpswell is today a favorite with artists and tourists. The Bailey Island Bridge is an Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
