About Harborside Cottage

Escape the crowds and enjoy the quiet side of Maine in a vintage waterfront cottage on the Schoodic peninsula.  At the head of the harbor in Prospect Harbor, on an acre of land planted with apple trees and blueberry bushes, Harborside Cottage is away from traditional tourist areas and just two hours from Canada.  On a quiet cove of the Atlantic Ocean and close to Acadia National Park:  the best Maine has to offer!

Harborside is a small cottage that lives big, with high ceilings, open rooms, and cozy seating areas.  Completely refurbished in 2021, Harborside now welcomes summer guests to one of Maine’s most charming areas.

A massive stone fireplace remains the focus of the living area.  The dining area, on the sunporch, has views of the harbor and across the cove to Dorcas Library.  In fact, every room has a water view.  A deck off the sun porch extends the living area to the outdoors, with a table and chairs for al fresco dining.

There is a sitting/reading room behind the fireplace, with plenty of books, puzzles, and games on the shelves.  Many of the books are by Maine authors.  This room has a trundle bed that sleeps two.

The cottage has one bedroom and one bath.  The bedroom has an iron and  brass bed, queen size, and is set apart from the rest of the house.  The bath has a step-in corner shower and is accessible from both the bedroom and the living area.

The kitchen is fully equipped, so you can eat in, prepare a picnic and head to the shore, or enjoy the area restaurants that serve local farm-fresh vegetables, lobster and fresh catch so abundant in the area.
