Brand new architectural cottage and detached 'boathouse' with sweeping elevated ocean views both east and west, private waterfront lawns and deep water dock with kayaks. This property is brand new in 2020 so expect a fresh and clean experience on one of Harpswell's most private peninsulas. Watch the sunrise from the cantilevered 2nd floor deck, sit by the campfire on your private lawn oceanside, or walk down to the dock for a paddle in the west facing protected cove. The best of coastal Maine!

The space
We just finished building this stunning cottage and boathouse on land that has been in Ryan's family for over 50 years. It's a beautiful spot: bold ocean views east and west, with a protected cove for kayaking and exploring. We kept a clean Scandinavian simplicity while looking out for all the essentials. If you're tired of staying in someone else's cottage with decades of family heirloom accumulation, we understand. This brand new place is perfect for you!

Where you’ll be

Harpswell, Maine, United States

Harpswell is a wonderful fishing community on the 'Mid-Coast' of Maine, made up by a number of connected islands and land, including popular Orr's and Bailey's Island. It is close to Brunswick and Bowdoin and has easy access to Portland airport and harbor. Around the cottage you will find famous landmarks like the Cribstone Bridge as you drive from Orr's to Bailey Island, boating and kayaking opportunities, great hikes (Giant's stairs is stunning), excellent lobster shacks (Erica's is our favorite), fine dining and salty ocean baths.

Hi, We're a family of five (a Mainer, a Swede and three little kiddos) that just moved back to Maine after a brief stint on the west coast. We previously lived in Washington DC where Anna worked at the World Bank on international development, and Ryan was running his renewable energy company, Arcadia. Ryan grew up in 'midcoast' Maine and has most of his family up there still. We got married in Harpswell six years ago and love the area so much. It makes us really happy to be able to share our places with others, give our guests tips on local attractions, suggests scenic hikes, or point our guests to the best lobster in the area. As a family we spend most of our time being outdoors or traveling. In addition to being a passionate foodie (cooking and eating) Anna loves to fish, so we're always on a look-out for good fishing spots (or new kite-surfing destinations for Ryan). We have hosted many wonderful airbnb guests in our little Shenandoah cabin in VA. As we moved out west we sold our dear fort Nesbitt - so if you came here looking for the 'hygge cabin' we're sorry to say its not ours anymore... but we are happy to host you in one of our unique spots on the Maine coast.
