On a large and peaceful tidal bay in Millbridge, with long views to spruce-covered islands, our cottage is a cozy getaway. With lots of windows facing the water, this is a bright and cheerful little house, with a deck overlooking the water.

The space

This cottage has been completely renovated and is a lovely, light-filled space. South-facing windows offer a breathtaking view down the tidal bay. The kitchen is well-stocked with cook and bakeware, including big pots and everything needed to cook a lobster dinner. Our cottage is just a few yards from the shore, and open to the ocean breezes. A line of rose bushes along the bank provide fragrance and blooms during summer months. There are stairs to the shore, but children under 10 need supervision.

Nights can be cool even in a Maine summer, but there are plenty of cozy blankets and quilts, and a small propane stove should you need heat.

The cottage is quiet, private, and peaceful, and a wonderful place to unwind and relax. This cozy space is ideal for a couple but could also accommodate other guests or children with the twin bed in the second bedroom and the pull-out couch in the main room.

Guest access

Guests have use of the entire house.

We are readily available via phone and occasionally in person as needed to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need!

We loved our stay at the Milbridge cottage! It truly was a wonderful, quiet and perfect getaway! Bethany and her husband Clay are wonderful hosts and were very helpful and available to answer questions about our stay there and the area. We certainly hope to stay here again in the future. The price is very reasonable and you definitely get your money's worth in this cabin. If you are considering staying here, do not hesitate! It may be a little further away from a lot of the touristy spots like the Bar Harbor area (like an hour and 15 minute drive), but after a long day in areas with so many people, I was so happy to get back to the cottage on the silent bay. Overall, I have no complaints, our stay was great, the cottage was very clean and had everything we could need, and I feel like the information that Bethany provided really helped us make the most of our stay in beautiful coastal Maine.

I am used to airbnb postings to play up the plusses and fail to list the negatives of a place. This case is the exception, the listing is truthful in every respect--no disappointments whatsoever. A perfect place on the water, our only 'druthers' that we did not plan to stay longer. Hope to be back next summer!

I (Bethany) work at a non-profit in northeastern, coastal Maine and love all things outdoor and food-related! Favorite activities include hiking, island camping, vegetarian cooking, baking pies, xc skiing and snowshoeing, gardening, and satisfying the travel bug whenever I can. My husband, Clay, is a carpenter and builder, and we renovated this sweet place together. We're so excited to share it with visitors!
