Nestled in a canopy of green with beautiful westerly views from Broad Sound to Casco Bay, Bober Cottage has 185ft of private shoreline that offers the perfect setting for your getaway to the coast of Maine.

You’ll love the privacy of this property, easy access to coastal restaurants, and a full service marina for endless adventures.

Inside the cottage, you will find a fully equipped kitchen, a full bathroom with a walk-in shower, a second floor master bedroom, and a tiny first floor bedroom with twin bunk beds (ideal for children), and a comfortable living room to enjoy the stunning sunsets over the bay.

Outside, you’ll find Adirondacks and a stone fire pit overlooking the ocean. A lush lawn with a stairway leading to a ragged shoreline which is a perfect place to hunt for sea glass, swim, or simply sit and enjoy the view.

We encourage all guests to visit to view many more photos and to learn about the history and surrounds of this beloved retreat.

Things to Consider

As the reviews suggest,  Bober Cottage is thoughtfully organized with many cute touches. Please note, however, that its proportions are small. Some families love the scale because it encourages togetherness, but that is not to everyone's taste. Before booking please consider if 528 (charming) square feet would be right for you. 

The ceiling height in the master bedroom (second floor) is approx. 5'10"—perfect for sitting and sleeping, but could be challenging if you are tall. The children's bedroom has a bunk bed that takes up most of the room. It is perfectly cozy for children, but not suitable for adults.

The cottage decor includes family heirlooms. On the north side is a bronze nude figure sculpted by Christopher Cairns. Lazarus, the saint who miraculously came back to life, rises from a patch of grass and points toward the ocean.

The natural surrounds of the cottage include animals. In addition to an array of birds, chipmunks, and friendly neighborhood dogs, it is not uncommon to see foxes, porcupines, and skunks.

As with most properties that rely on wells, the water can be limited by rainfall. We ask guests to conserve water and report any issues with drips, leaks, or outages so they may be addressed immediately. 

If you are looking for a cookie-cutter hotel or resort experience, then Bober Cottage is not for you. It is ideal for those who appreciate an intimate setting within a few feet of the rocky coast, sunsets from a picture window, and a quaint cottage that has been cherished for three generations.

Sorry, Pets are not allowed at this property.

Bober Cottage does not have a washer and dryer, but there is a laundromat in Brunswick, just 20 minutes away.

First Floor- Small Bedroom with Twin Bunk Beds (Perfect for two children)
Second Floor- Master Bedroom with Queen Bed (Most comfortable for sleeping and sitting, for the ceilings are low)

First Floor- Full Bath with Shower Only

My husband and I loved Bober Cottage. The privacy, location, proximity to two good restaurants were excellent features for us. The house is small but well appointed; would recommend highly for 2 adults. Gorgeous sunsets, evening fires outdoors overlooking the water, rock collecting on the private shoreline during low tide - just what we were hoping for. The bathroom is very small but manageable. The kitchen, living room and upstairs bedroom had everything we needed. Service from MaineStay was great. We would rent again.

Bober Cottage was more than we could have asked for! From the lovely views to the comfy bed, we enjoyed our stay immensely. We loved the out of the way of the place and views but the extra surprise of a seafood hut and restaurant right across the lane! The space itself was so sweetly put together and really made us feel at home the minute we arrived - hard to leave it in the end. Thank you for sharing it with us, we will definitely be back.

We loved our stay at The Bober cottage! It has wonderful views and yard. We had a camp fire almost every night and two great places to eat right across the road.

This little cottage was just perfect! We loved all the personal touches - birdseed and dog treats. The space was decorated beautifully for a peaceful feeling as soon as you entered. We spent one entire afternoon just sitting outside and enjoying the view. There is nothing better than sleeping with the smell of salt air and the sound of the waves in the background. This was the perfect little retreat for us. We were spoiled with spectacular sunsets every evening as well.

The cottage is very private even though it sits right across the street from Erica's Seafood which is a very busy place. When you first drive in, you fall in love with the view, the trees, the house, just everything. If you read the description, the house is small. And I mean small. It worked out for me and my grandson but I don't know how it would work with 3 adults. The bathroom is VERY small so large people would not find it comfortable. That being said, it have EVERYTHING you would need. All labeled and in it's place. Every kitchen item, bathroom stuff, games and much more. Highlights....hearing the water splash against the cliffs at night. Watching my grandson run along the beach looking for shells and sea glass and using his imagination in his makebelieve world. Playing monopoly or clue from vintage games boards. (I really wanted to take them home) Sitting by the firepit having smores and hot dogs. I didn't like the fact I had to pay for the sheets and towels but they were so crisp and comfortable I let it pass. When I first walked in, I was worried because it was rustic looking but as the week went on, I came to the conclusion that it was the new "farmhouse chic". It was clean and basically all new even though it looked older at first glance. I really enjoyed the place and enjoyed my time there. I don't think I would recommend to 3 or 4 adults but maybe it would work. It would work with 2 adults and 2 children. If I have the chance, I will return.....

Bober Cottage is nothing short of magical. The view alone is worth it and we spent much of our weeks stay watching the weather and tides change while the birds (including herons!) fished in the water below. The cottage itself is cozy and very well stocked with lots of thoughtful touches. We were especially impressed with the kitchen which has all of the cookware and spices you could hope for. The location is also wonderful-Harpswell is quiet and peaceful, but Brunswick, Bath, and Portland are all relatively close by for when we wanted to shop, go to a museum or out to eat. There are also plenty of lovely hiking trails nearby. Finally, MaineStay Vacation was very easy to communicate with and check in was very easyeven though we hit traffic and arrived much later than planned. We loved staying here and cant recommend it enough!

Great place for a relaxing time right next to the water. The sunsets were stunning! The cottage is cute and offers all necessities. It is very cosy. Conveniently, it is located in close walking distance to two great seafood places. Bring some cash, some of the restaurants and local shops do not accept cards.

The house is tiny but perfectly appointed. Very thoughtful touches throughout. Organized and clean. Enjoyed hunting for beach glass among the rocky shoreline. Delicious meal at dolphin marina. Great hikes as suggested by host. Amazing sunsets. Loved the visits from the well mannered neighborhood dogs.
