“Truly A Gem”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

My partner and I took my parents here for their 50th anniversary weekend. We wanted to do something very, very special for them. We stayed on Father's Day weekend. Well, I must say all the reviews we read before we arrived were spot on. This is truly a gem of a place !!!!!! Everything was so clean and the cabins were just so adorable! My parents stayed in Float In and let me just tell you the cabin is simply awesome! The views of the tidal river coming into the cove was amazing! They loved it. We stayed in Smooth Sailing and we were very happy with this cute cabin! The views and landscaping around this whole place is something else. Breakfast was very simple and clever the way they did it by hanging it outside your door at 8am. Linda the manager was great. Very, very friendly and accommodating So...... if you want to stay in a place that offers a comfortable stay in a beautiful setting, look no further. We had a 50th celebration none of us will forget.

My husband and I stayed here for one night of our anniversary trip. It was the highlight of our hotels (and we stayed in some great places!). We had the choice of 2 cottages and chose "Sea Worthy". It was so adorable...beautifully decorated, super clean and every detail was considered. Wine glasses, champagne glasses, coffee, ice, utensils, cute bowls, plates, blow dryer, tv, ipod doc, any thing you could possibly need/want - they had it! They also had every detail outside covered and we tried many of them. Canoes, kayaks, bikes to use, corn hole game, croquet, beautiful lounge chairs everyone (including 4 at our cottage), movies, games, books. I could easily have spent a week here! My husband earned major points for choosing this place! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Sea Worthy was a little hidden in the foliage and felt very private.

What a fabulous place! The most adorable cottage (Sleepy Hollow), which while small, was kitted out with everything you need. Beautiful grounds and gardens - so nice to just sit on the porch. But lots to do round and about in lovely Kennebunkport! Suggestions are included daily with the generous breakfast bag. And other thoughtful touches include a Whoopie Pie on arrival and a snack bag on departure. I will definitely return!
I can also recommend the lobster at Nunan's (cash only), a trip out on Kylie's Chance lobster boat and the fried clams at the Clam Shack! Not so impressed with Mabel's Lobster Claw.

The attention to detail, the great location, the interior design and furnishing, everything about these cottages and the service of the property is great. We had a fabulous bike trip with our complimentary bikes. @8am breakfast is hung next to your door in a cute bag, a nice bread-type-of-thing and some fruit, it's not extensive, but tastes good. The cottages has a lot of amenities as well; coffee machine, fridge, cooking plate and all kinds of stuff you might need for food&drinks.
At departure we even got a small bag of (foodie) goodies, so well meant. I absolutely love this place.

Room Tip: We stayed in Sunrise cottage, we loved the interior design (all 16 cottages are different..).

Anxiously anticipated this little vacation. I prepared myself for disappointment on the drive from Logan as the pictures and articles about the Cottages at Cabot Cove seemed too good to be true. Seriously. It was all TRUE. Enchanting. Relaxing. The lush, natural landscaping and the sounds of just plain nature were divine. And those cottages!!!!

EXACTLY like the pictures. Charming, clean as a whistle and cozy. Screened doors leading out to Adirondack chairs for some reading and reflecting. A few steps down the path is the cove with a little dock stacked with kayaks. Just the sound of my footsteps walking along that path of crushed seashells gently whispered "Hey, you're in Maine".

I'll admit, for about 20 minutes I was a bit perplexed as to how we would make do in such a small space. No problem. Once the clothes were hung up and suitcase stashed out of the way under the bed, the hubs found outlets for electronics and were good to go.

Kitchen had everything, though we just used the fridge and Keurig. Even though this place isn't a B & B, they graciously leave an insulated green bag on a hook outside the door early in the morning. Breakfast. A carafe of OJ and over the days we found muffins, egg sandwiches, yogurt, coffee cake and boiled eggs. A nice start to a lazy day.

Speaking of lazy, I love that this is an unpretentious atmosphere. People were just as un-kept after day 1 as we were! You just don't worry about dressing to go into a lobby or even sit on the porch at some of the other places in town. Relax. Messed up hair and all. I had to remind my husband (a suit and tie guy) to take a shower.

There are bikes available and it was a short (really short) five minute bike ride to the beach just south of the cottages. A short 5 minute bike ride north of the cottages takes you to Dock Square to pick up the daily lobster roll and/or clam strips at the Crab Shack (cash) or to HB Provisions to stock up on libations, snacks and Whoopie Pies! We also grabbed a bite at Market Day. We brought clothes for a nice dinner out, but were too relaxed to pull ourselves together to make the effort to get dressed up. That's what The Cottages at Cabot Cove will do to a person.

As beautiful as some of the new places in town are, my money will go back to these little cottages. I don't need to be seen with the trendy crowd on a vacation. I want to pull my hair up, put on a sweatshirt and eat a Whoopie Pie with a glass of wine (for dinner) in a lovely cottage by a little cove. This is what a getaway in Maine is all about.

From the moment we arrived this was a magical trip - myself and my sister and her husband had a great time at our cottage. The breakfast each morning was delicious, the cottage was comfortable and the access to the kayaks and the bikes meant we had a fantastic time. We stayed 3 nights but could easily have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Read carefully what each cabin offers - that way you can pick one that fits in with exactly what you...
