You must note any damage on check-in and message me on airbnb. Check-in otherwise acknowledges the cottage has been received in good condition, with the stated inventory items, and that additional charges may be incurred if property is damaged or inventory items need to be replaced. This consideration will be assessed at time of check-out.
Cottage and grounds policies, including pool, arcade, noise curfew, and fire pit rules will be clearly posted in all cottages and in the communal areas.
Smoking is not permitted in the cottage. If smoke or cigarette odor is found upon checkout, the security deposit will be applied to the extra cleaning service.
Pets are permitted but you must first notify me at the time of booking. Pets must be house trained and be curbed and leashed on outdoor premises for the safety of other guests, especially those with children. If pet-related stains and litter are found on the premises, the security deposit will be applied for the extra cleaning.

The cottage was great! It was small but perfect for two of us for a couple nights. Old Orchard Bay was a quaint town and an easy drive to Portland to explore the area. Thanks for a relaxing weekend getaway!
The space was really clean. The cottage was well laid out so you had everything you need. It was a great space for one couple. I think that it would be a little tight if there was a second couple on the futon, but it could be done. The loft space is only big enough for smaller children who are old enough to climb a ladder.
We had wanted to use the fire pit but the weather didn't work with us, so we were not able to. Nonetheless it is a really nice feature if you have a nice night.
Mike was pretty laid back but also responsive. He lives only steps from the cottage so he was very accessible. He offered his cell phone number so that you could reach him when he was away from the house.
There are a couple of things that are worth considering. I thought I would like that the house was further from the main strip because I thought the space was a little more rural. However, it is a pretty residential neighborhood, so even though you are away from the beach, you are not in a secluded space. There are also three other cottages that are part of Mike's property and they are in pretty close proximity. The upside is that you could have multiple people rent the cottages together. On the other hand you should be aware that the cottage is not the only one on the property.
We wanted to get away from the city and we had a relaxing time!
Great beach house. Clean. Comfortable. Tight but ample room (hey, it's a beach house!). Accurately described. Decided to stay here as an off-season alternative to a hotel in Portland. Glad I did. Would definitely book again. Thanks much, Mike!
I loved this Cottage! It is adorable in every aspect and amazingly comfortable. The pool was great, and the fire pit was a nice amenity. I also loved the mini arcade! We will definitely be back!
My girlfriend and I spent several days at one of Mike's cottages. The cottage was adorable, clean, and the perfect size for the two of us. We took full advantage of the kitchen, grill and fire pit. The cottage is perfectly located; it's minutes from the beach, Scarborough and multiple seafood markets and lobster shacks. Mike was a pleasant host and the folks who seemed to be working for him, renovating nearby cottages, were also very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely rent from Mike again.
The cottage was very clean and nice! The cottage's fire pit, bench, and grill were especially nice. Mike had various supplies (linens, towels, etc.) accessible and it was a pleasant, relaxing stay.

Travel and arts buff, since 2005 I have been offering beautiful rustic cottages for a comfortable stay with a coastal Maine theme. Only seen when needed, but with attention to detail and focus on guest satisfaction. I enjoy the outdoors and so offer campground-type amenities to guests.
