Lasting Impression, Wonderful Memories
5 / 5 Excellent
We came to the Honeymoon Cottage with unexpected and unique circumstances. Our beloved dog was lost and my husband flew back home to PA to aid in the search for him… We weren’t sure if he would be back. Each day was uncertain and a revaluation of circumstances, but the one thing that remained a constant source of comfort was this incredible, little house that felt like home to the four of us for even just a few days. Paul could not have been more helpful, understanding and accommodating. Paul met us at the house upon check-in and showed us around. The house was stocked with fresh goodies; beer and wine, seltzer waters, cheese, crackers and a little something sweet. It was such a nice surprise! The cottage itself is lovely. It had been recently renovated and it is quaint and charming and very comfortable. It was very spacious and had plenty of room to spare. It was immaculate and it had everything we needed—a well-appointed kitchen, two nice-sized, newly renovated bathrooms, a beautiful master bedroom and two bedrooms upstairs that were perfect for my three kids. There was a cozy family room with a smart TV, and WiFi in case you have a rainy day, otherwise you could be outside in the spacious yard, or by the fire pit, or having a drink on the deck or screened-in porch. The breeze through the open windows, the sunset and the quiet evenings were quintessential Maine and just what we needed after a long day. We found Castine to be a great jumping off point for our adventures. We visited Acadia and Bar Harbor and downtown Castine for some kayaking… it is just a stunningly beautiful spot with an amazing story of history to tell.
Paul was available if we had any questions—like where to get a great lobster dinner, or problems (but we didn’t have any). He was the kind of host that made us feel truly welcomed and cared for and I can’t explain how much that meant to us. Paul even followed up with us after our stay and went out of his way to send some items back to us that we had left at the house. The Honeymoon Cottage was the perfect spot for us. My husband wasn’t able to come back and join us, but we are hoping to make this property and Castine, ME a vacation tradition for us. My family can’t wait to come back next time. This was hands down, a five-star experience and I would highly recommend the Honeymoon Cottage and Paul and Marie’s lovely hospitality to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the beauty, peace, serenity and adventure of Maine.
