“Relaxing place on a fabulous bay.”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Blackberry Cottage was wonderful. Located at the end of a slender peninsula south of Georgetown, Maine, it is located on a tidal bay. The bay goes from a sandy, walkable area to a lovely waterfilled bay twice a day. There are kayaks for trips out when the tide is in, and fabulous sunsets. Plus the ospreys put on a show at every change of tide.
I loved that there was no TV or internet. A real vacation.
I'd stay there again.

Just got back from a week here with my husband and teens. We had an amazing time. The cottage is more like a cabin as it is simple but it is very comfortable. The area of Maine that it is in is absolutely gorgeous with breathtaking views at the cabin and the surrounding areas. The cabin sits on a beautiful bay that just about empties during low tide making it fun to hunt for shells and other sea objects. It would also be perfect swimming for the little ones. The cabin comes with three kayaks, one double and two singles. We had fun kayaking at high tide and even saw a seal poke his head up! When staying here you will also have nearby(you could walk but there is parking) access to sandy oceanfront beaches and some areas with giant rocks to climb on. One of Maine's famous lobster shacks is a few miles down the road. It was featured on the travel channel. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9qgKXmS1w4 Reid State Park is also very close by and offers more stunning views with sandy beaches, hiking and rocks to climb on. We got our groceries on our way in, in Bath, and were glad that we did as it is about 30 minute drive to a larger size store from the cabin. There is a convenience store closer by if you forget any essentials. Very fun vacation and we would love to go back!

“Wonderful cottage on the ocean/bay”

This is a wonderful cottage off the beaten path. It is back to basics - no Internet or TV, which can be a big plus for a relaxing vacation. It is also far from civilization - it is a good thirty minute drive to any selection of stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc. This makes for a relaxing vacation, but don't expect to have easy access to all of the conveniences of home.

The kitchen is well equipped, and linens are available in the dressers. There is a gas fireplace to drive off a chilly morning, and a good selection of games and books. Beach access is its strong point - a small private beach is just steps from the deck and is perfect for kids to play in the tidal water. It will change from a shallow calm sandy beach at low tide to a deeper and more wavy beach at high tide. If you want waves crashing on the rocks, there is access to a few other beaches within walking distance on the ocean side of the peninsula, about a half mile away that were a perfect mix of rocky and sandy.

The only negative we had was the hot water tank is really small, so we would run out of hot water after one good shower or two quick ones. We had to stagger shower times between two adults and two kids to have hot showers. It is no big deal, and we were able to work around it. Water quality is excellent. No need to bring in bottled water for drinking.

We would definitely recommend and will probably return.
