About this listing

Quintessential Maine vacation cottage on the New Meadows River between the towns of Brunswick and Bath.
Kitchenette, internet, TV, heat, a/c. All linens and towels included. Within easy driving distance of beautiful beaches, kayaking, fishing, boating, museums, outlet and antique shopping and much more.
Plenty of room to bring your own boat. Pet friendly.

The space

We have a group of eight cottages situated in a semi-circle on about 6 acres of land - bordered on one side by the New Meadows River. There's a bench on the river bank - look for osprey, blue heron, bald eagles and sometimes a seal will follow the striped bass up the river this far. We are 12 miles from the open ocean and the river is perfect for exploring by kayak.
The road at the front of our property can be busy during the day with local car traffic, but it's generally very quiet at night.
My grandfather built the cottages (and house for himself and my grandmother on the same property) in the mid-to-late 40's. He had started a lobster pound across the road which had grown to become a restaurant & inn and later, under my father's management, a banquet room was added. The Inn was sold in 2004 (and is now a church) and Sue & I took over the ownership and operation of the cottages.

We enjoyed are still here at Rick and Sue's cottage, which was very conveniently located, clean and had some great traveling neighbors which whom to converse. Decent rate for a one night stay and they allow dogs, which we needed. We will be coming back next time we're in town this year to explore more of southern Maine!

Cozy one night stay, very quite...

This is my third stay at Rick's place. It feels like coming home. The cabins are clean, well stocked, comfey, quiet. So much better than a hotel. Thank you!

The cottages were clean, comfortable and cozy. Rick was very accommodating and helpful with information about the area. We picked up fried scallops and chowder from Schuttys across the street and enjoyed them on our deck!

My husband and I stayed at New Meadows River Cottages all last week while visiting my husband's family. We loved the little cottage we stayed in. Perfect for just the 2 of us. It was a central location to all of the places we wanted to go to but it felt nice and secluded and it was a quiet atmosphere. The value for the time we stayed was excellent too. My husband and I are coming back to Maine next summer and plan to stay at these cottages again! On top of that, Rick was an excellent host. He answered all of my questions prior to our visit and seemed very laid back. Can't wait to stay again.

Cute, clean and very functional cottage. Comfortable beds and nice porch for reading. Will stay again if my large family gathers again at my brother's home nearby and "overflow beds" are needed.

My wife, Sue and I run a group of vacation cottages in Maine that were built by my grandfather. We have two children and we love to spend time together - sailing, walking the dog (DeeDee the airedale), reading. I'm a carpenter and Sue works for a non-profit.
