Chris was a wonderful and responsive host. The house was very charming, too (and very close to everything Portland has to offer). Just be careful on the steps- very steep and slippery. My dog was too scared to walk down them!
The cabin is great for a getaway. Simple but very cozy interior, amazing porch facing the ocean. Went for a swim every day. Chris was a great host, the communication was quick and easy. I can highly recommend this place!
The cottage was great: spacious, well equiped kitchen and everything you need for relaxing near the water. There are a lot of things you can do in the neighbourhood and Chris has provides a lot of information about them. Communication was very easy and always helpful.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The stay in the Seaside Cabin did meet our expectation in every way. The cabin is at a beautiful place by the shor (you can watch the tide roling in and out).
Everything worked very well and Chris is very helpful an responses the questions that we had very fast :-)
We very recomend the accomadation to everyone who likes the natur an a calm area, especialy for familis with kids!
Please notic there is no heating inside, so if its cold outside it is cold inside.
If you are looking for a little, private slice of heaven to get away from life for a while, this Harpswell cottage is ideal. I hope to return again soon. Chris was great to rent from.
Chris' waterfront cottage was a home away from home. It was easy to settle in and be quite comfortable. There is an easy, light and airy feel to the place and the views are amazing. We sat on the deck in the morning with coffee and tea and watched the movement of the tides and the ships. At night we sat out and watched the moon rise and reflect off the water. The home was tastefully decorated with very comfortable seating options, the bed was also comfy and we slept very well. We awoke to the amazing view of the bay and the islands and, lucky us, beautiful blue skies. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt comfortable walking and biking around. There is a tasty diner and a sandwich shop close by too. We were minutes from the Portland bicycle/pedestrian path and enjoyed traveling into town on that. What more could we ask for...we had a wonderful weekend.
Chris has such a wonderful little cottage. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. We enjoyed several swims out in the bay and even walked to a secluded beach at low tide. The neighbors are wonderful people and super friendly. We spent most of our time there taking long walks down the peninsulas of Harpswell and just relaxing in the breeze on the beautiful porch.
It was such a great week, and we cant thank Chris enough for all of the help. This is a great spot to just take a load off and hit the reset button. Very highly recommended.
Perfect and simple cottage for us with a spectacular waterfront view, a lot of space outside and a beach just in front at low tide. Very quiet neighborhood, grocery and fresh lobsters around. We travel for the first time with our baby (18 months) and everybody enjoyed staying there a whole week. We want to come back every year!
Hands down the best vacation value on the Eastern Seaboard. The home is charming, quaint, comfortable, and there is not a better view to be found in the Portland area. The home is a 5 minute drive to the Promenade Park, 7 minutes to Fore Street (best restaurant in Portland), 10 minutes to the Airport, but sits right on the bay with a drool-worthy patio - truly the best of both worlds. Waste the afternoons away watching the sailboats sail by, take a nap in the kitchen's comfy bay window, walk the shore, but still have easy access to the Old Port, lobster shacks, dining and nightlife.
Chris with family and friends stayed a few nights for the hunting season. It was such a treat to meet them all and discover some common ground; common college alumni & contacts with my old high school - such a small world.
Chris was great, easy to communicate with and even offered us a grocery run on his travels up. Also, having hosted thru airbnb he had some great advice.
I would highly recommend Chris as a guest and would love to have him back.
Very nice couple! :) They were very smiling and kind! I'm glad that I could be their host! I hope they come back one day! :)
Chris was a perfect guest! He took good care of my apartment and is always welcome back!
