The cottage is as close to the water's edge as you can get in Maine. Fully furnished and beautifully maintained the cottage has all necessities including a kitchenette, washer and dryer! Easily accessible from US RT1 Walking distance to Wiscasset highlights.
My stay was near the end of the season. I was made to feel welcome when Penny honored my request for her to extend her season by one week to accommodate my need for lodging for almost three complete weeks.
I found the accommodations very consistent with the listing details and the pictures of the unit. The unit was very comfortable and the area was very quiet and peaceful. If I am in the area again, I would certainly try to stay in the cottage.
We just spent two nights on the Sheepscott river in Penny's wonderful cottage!- photos were exactly accurate - clean and and spotless !
We had wonderful scenery , sunsets and a spectacular moon set ( I get up early). This was a perfect area to discover mid-coast Maine.
We did walk to the Edgecomb Fort and also walked across the Wiscassett Bridge (separate walking lane) to great lobster at Sprague's.
Penny was quick to respond to any and all questions we had , and information was found in the cottage to help plan our days. We did not meet Penny,, but had no problems at all finding her cottage. All went very smoothly and we now have wonderful memories of this special area. Thanks Penny!
We loved this adorable cottage right on the Sheepscot River. It's decorated adorably and almost makes you feel like you're in a boathouse. Warm welcoming feel, lovely sunsets, in acute community situated across from Wiscasset. Wish our plans had allowed us to stay longer!
This cottage has a great location. It was spotless and comfortable. Here's some information for specific interests:
Kitchen: there is no stove or range in the cottage. The very basic kitchen has a refrigerator, hot plate, microwave, and toaster oven. Plan your meals accordingly
Bed: the bed was quite comfortable, and I have a very fussy back.
Penny provided maps and other information about the area, and she was very communicative during the reservation process. We were very happy to find a place that allows us to bring our dog. This place is a really great value and we were so happy to discover it! We hope to come back next year for a longer visit
I'm so thrilled to have found and stayed at the cottage. It is easily accessible from the main road yet right on the water providing peace and serenity. I loved waking up with view of the river! The cottage is just across the bridge from cafes, eateries, and great antique shops.
Penny wasn't able to meet us at check in but she provided clear directions so getting in was a breeze. The cottage was tastefully decorated and spotless with abundance of towels and unbeatable water pressure. The bed was very comfortable as well. I absolutely loved staying there and can't wait to return again!
The host was accessible and helpful. The cottage was clean and spacious. The bathroom was well equipped and the pull-out couch was fine. The photos were accurate. It is a pretty location on the water. However, the description of the cottage having a kitchenette is misleading. There is no stove or oven, merely a small hot plate and almost no counter space. This was too bad as there was a very nice eating space looking out on the water. Also, Rte 1, a very busy road from 5 a.m. to sunset, is within sight of the cottage so traffic noise can be heard, especially when windows are open.
We had a wonderful experience staying at Penny's cottage. It was clean, nicely furnished and conveniently located. Beautiful views of the river & easy access to the Boothbay region. Penny was responsive and easy to deal with. We hope to be able to stay at the cottage again.
