A belated thank you for providing us with an outstanding vacation! Maine is my favorite state and I wanted to share this with my sisters for a one time experience. We were thrilled with the views and your excellent services; I would recommend your vacation sites to anyone and will remember this vacation for years to come!

First-you are awesome! We had such a wonderful time at Duck Inn. It was just the best setting for our anniversary. The house is set up so well for three couples; the pond was perfect and the setting delightful. You are the best customer service person I have ever worked with and I just wanted you to know how very much I appreciate all your help from the beginning, thank you.

My Husband David, and our 3 1/2 month old daughter Ava Grace and me want to thank you for crating such a personable and cozy home :) we had the privilege of enjoying 5 splendid days and nights in your enchanted Vermont Cabin. While here, we especially enjoyed your fireplace and the spectacular views from your front porch, David thoroughly enjoyed his daily morning nature walks right here in your backyard! Meanwhile, I delighted in some of Lexis storybooks to my daughter and baking fresh banana bread!! Thank you for helping to create some beautiful memories of our first "family" vacation :)

We want to thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. Being able to wake up and enjoy a cup of coffee on your porch was an absolute dream! The fireplace was also wonderful, especially after our long day on the slopes. Thank you again we look forward to coming back to have another wonderful vacation.

Hi Danielle, Thanks so much for all your help. It has been pleasure dealing with someone who is so attentive. This is particularly important when you are engaging with a booking on the internet. It gives me a-lot of confidence. Thanks again for you ongoing support and top class client oreiented service. Much appreciated.

I want to take this opportunity to recommend Quiet Harbor in East Boothbay. After a stressful year of 14-16 hour days I needed to find a place to relax, refresh and rejuvenate my mind, body and spirit. A dear friend suggests Quiet Harbor. From the moment I drove down the woods land and saw the small lovely cottage with the quiet harbor in front of me I knew I had found just the spot. The cottage was all I could have asked for and more, quaint, quiet and comfortable. Well equipped with a bed that was more comfortable then the 5 * hotels( and I have stayed in many 5* hotels). I rose each morning to have coffee on the dock and came home each night to have cocktails on the same lovely dock. I watched boats come and go and even saw an eagle. The warm, welcoming and gracious owner checked several time to make sure I had everything I needed. Quiet harbor lived up to it’s name and yet was only 10-15 minutes from shopping and the beautiful spot, well equipped with everything you might need for a week or the entire summer and who do not want to fund a lovely “Quiet Harbor” nestled in the woods, I hope that you will suggest this idyllic spot it certainly get my 5* rating!!

Hello! My sister and I spent a glorious week in early September, 2009. After visiting the Boothbay region every year for over 35 years, we’ve stayed at various motels and rented homes. We really hit the jackpot this time!! Beautiful, clean, lovely, comfortable home. Great view of my beloved Linekin Bay, peaceful, quite and so close to the Harbor. What a gem. Cottage Connection is a pleasure to deal with!1 we will return! Thank you.

Hello All, We stayed at the Duck Inn July 25th thru August 25th, 2009. Without a doubt it was the most wonderfully relaxing vacation we have ever been on!! The home was absolutely beautiful and the grounds were paradise. We felt totally at home the minute we opened the door. The office staff was terrific to deal with and treated me like someone they had known for years after just a few minutes on the phone. It was a pleasure to ready the work we had done, but it was really not a problem! We respected and treated it just like our own home. We are hoping to rent the Duck Inn next summer around the same time, only brining my sister and her husband with us. Again, thanks so much for allowing us to share the cottage.

I want to thank you for helping us make our fiftieth anniversary reunion such a success. The Captain’s Quarters was everything you advertised and more. The children caught fish every day; we kayaked and rowed, watched the lobster fishermen and toured the local attractions. We did our best to bring the sunshine you requested and were successful on several days. We had a lot of lobster and visited some of the area’s islands. We even built fires in the fireplace on the colder days. Everything was like a Norman Rockwell painting.

Dear Cottage Connection staff, Just wanted to you to know what a great time our family has had on our annual vacations in Maine. 2007 was our ninth stay in Boothbay Harbor and the ninth house we have rented from Cottage Connection. Our trip to Maine provides a memorable time with our frown children, their spouses and our grandchildren in beautiful Maine. a vacation for all us! Although we have come to Boothbay so many times, there is always something new to do and old favorites to revisit. The houses have been wonderful…. Each different but each great to stay in. every January my husband telephones Cottage Connection to find a house for our vacation each time the staff [usually Melba] suggests places that are big enough with the right features. All have been successful and made for a comfortable experience. The staff has been unfailingly gracious, helpful and easy to contact both in the planning stage and during our vacation. The have responded quickly to our questions and to the very few unforeseen repairs that have been needed. The cottages have been uniformly clean and in good condition. We have never been disappointed by a house that we rented Cottage Connection also provides lots of extras such as cribs, high chairs, and information about the local businesses…almost anything to make a “vacation: a true vacation. We have nothing but food things to day about Cottage Connection and look forward to renting form ou for many more years. We would enthusiastically recommend your company to anyone. We are happy St. Louisans by really look forward to our two weeks in Maine, our home away from home. Thanks for sharing your wonderful town and for all the precious memories each summer brings. See you this summer.

"My Mother has always wanted to live in a house on the Ocean. Thank you for making this possible. Piffi Biff was a perfect spot for s to be able spend this special time with her. We were all able to visit with her there and to come and go as we needed. It was a wonderful time for her and for us too. Thank you for helping to make it possible and for working with us....."

I just wanted to let you know again how much we appreciated and valued our week at Newagen Cove Cottage. Everything was, in a word, perfection (which is not a word I use lightly.) Beginning with the website which was easy to navigate and which accurately depicted the remarkable array of cottages you offer to the warm, competent and accommodating staff who patiently answered all our questions to the truly remarkable house that eventually was the site of the vacation of our dreams, I cannot imagine a more ideal experience. (and a daily breakfast of blueberry pancakes at Southport’s sweet Dreams Bakery was, no pun intended, icing on the cake!!) For a couple of city-weary New Yorkers, this was the idyllic time that will provide for us to return the challenges of city life. And a return to Maine, though the kindness of Maine Cottage Connection, will be what keeps us going through the coming year.

I must say I feel much better after our talk yesterday. I realize what I really admire about CCM is your Honesty. So many companies try to sweep little problems under the rug and tell little fibs. You don’t seem to ever do that which in this day of Enron is so admirable and wondrous.

Dear Cottage Connection Friends, It was a wonderful and welcome surprise to arrive at Quite Spot to find our beds made with clean sheets and fresh towels waiting for us, all by way of thanks, as we understand it, and in commemoration of two decades of good service to renters like us. In this age when transactions are just that and no more, to be treated so well and thoughtfully when you didn't have too, well....what a wonderful treat. THANK YOU! And the family CBMO (Chief Bed Making Officer) sends her special thanks. While I was sorting out the kitchen (my job), instead of tucking in sheets, she was already settling into full vacation mode. We have been coming to Quite Spot for more than the past decade, missing only one or two years. It has always been a great pleasure to come here; besides being a quite spot, it is also a splendid spot. Cottage Connection has made our annual journey easy and carefree, especially so this year. Each member of the staff has always been unfailing courteous and helpful. We look forward to returning for many years to come.

Tony and Anita, Cortland, Ohio
Although Tony is a seasoned Vermont visitor, this was my first time to New England. Your cabin is truly a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. The weather did not cooperate, but despite the rain the view from the front porch was nothing short of wonderful! We felt like we were visiting family, the pictures make it feel "homey" and the fireplace was cozy! Thank you for offering this fantastic retreat to strangers from Ohio.

Great cottage in a very peaceful area. Beautiful sunsets and amazing water view. Perfect place for a family - especially with a little one! Thank you for a wonderful week! (entry in Cottage's Guestbook).

1. Why did you choose Cottage Connection? Previous experience! 2. What was the best part of your vacation? Relaxing by the water 3. If you were to recommend us to friends and family, what would you say? That you'll find them a vacation cottage that suits their needs. And you'll be on hand to help with any problems or questions that come up. 4. What was the biggest surprise about your stay? Delighted that there was so much firewood available. Enjoyed a fire almost every night. And a treat to find a bottle of wine waiting for us. :) 5. Do you have any recommendations for the property owner? No. Delightful cottage and location. 6. How may we serve you better? Can't think of any!

We chose Cottage Connection because it was an established business of long standing good reputation. The best part of our rental experience was the incredible location, views, charm and comfort of our cottage, The Haven. We would recommend Cottage Connection to our friends and family as they were very helpful, there was an ease of communication and their professionalism. We were pleasantly surprised how well stocked the cottage was and would only suggest maybe changing the check-out time to 11.

Bob and Mary L
Bottom line is we had a great time and the house was perfect for our needs. It is not easy finding a place that would fit our family and still provide privacy and space for our activities. The entire process from start to finish was handled with professionalism. Our family loved the home and all that it is. Boothbay is a great spot for all ages. Our kids LOVED having boats available. We want to thank the owner for sharing their home with us. Bob and Mary

Kathy Craig
We asked Kathy if the house met her expectations and Kathy answered "Absolutely, it was comfortable, cozy while allowing everyone their own space. When asked what was their favorite thing to do while they were at the house: "Besides the pool and the cove, watching the Red Sox as a family in the beautiful family room"

VERY SPECIAL PLACE ON REMOTE POND IN RURAL MAINE 4 of 5 Off the grid is no problem in this remote solar powered home. Private can't begin to describe the pond. In the week we were there we saw a total of zero people on the pond... no boats, no people, just loons, osprey, beaver and very large fish (don't use anything less than 12lb test). Star watching was amazing! The property is a lovely wood-walled 2 story cabin powered by a combination of solar panels and home generator, a State of the Art system. No issues no matter what the weather. It does has Dish tv, a phone, wood stove, and a nice deck. The owner is very responsive and the people in the area are very friendly. We recommend the Cambridge Country Store for a unique dining experience. A combination small country store and cafe, the owners are from Tennessee and love to cook. Any meal, any time, they are glad to feed you and your family. The Breakfast Nook is nice but only open on Thur-Sun mornings. The Harmony Country Store was nick-named 'the mall'. They have a little bit of EVERYTHING - from food, to hardware, to animal feed, to hunting/fishing gear to clothing... And if you need a dose of 'urban', Dexter isn't far at all. Of course, the Maine version of 'urban' is remarkably refreshing. This part of Maine is not your usual tourist destination, and what you find is what is simply real life for the residents. No water parks, no mini-golf, no chain restaurants. Its rural, real and quite remarkable. I would recommend this place IF you are looking for a remote, off the grid place where you can fish in solitude on miles and miles of clean Maine waters. We travel every summer for family vacations, and our week at Harmony will certainly be one of the most 'memorable'. Submitted: Aug 13, 2013 Stayed: Aug 2013 Source: Owner's Response: I wholeheartedly agree with everything these guest have said. The only thing I would like to add is we are going to take their recommendations and extend the dock out another 20 feet for next summer so swimming will not be an issue. This was our first year with the dock, but swimming will not be an issue next year. Everything else as they said is right on the money. It is a great place to go for peace and solitude and fishing and swimming as well. A great place to relax.

We spent a lovely week at Blackberry Cove Cottage and enjoyed both the amenities of the cottage and the surrounding nature. I hadn't expected the cottage to be so well supplied, not only with utensils and spices but with books, DVDs, board games and cards...The stay was a 98% and I will recommend Blackberry Cove Cottage to our friends. Also a special thanks to Lucy and the Staff at Cottage Connection for excellent and cheerful service. As a trained chef I brought many species, herbs and specialty utensils. However, they were not needed. The house was stocked with anything you needed for a quiet get away. T he sunsets were beautiful. It was so nice to feel we were the only two people here, well along with our Min Lin who had a wonderful time exploring the nature and the water. We enjoyed the peacefulness which we both needed. We had a very relaxing time. I'm sure we will be back!!!
