A mid-coast centrally located family home filled with memories, history and charm.

Enjoy rolling hills, bodies of water and beautiful scenery.

My family and I spent our childhood summers running through the fields, chasing grasshoppers, capturing lightning-bugs and watching the Fall colors come in.

As adults, we bring our own families and children up here to do the same, relax, slow down and enjoy all the wonderful local attractions.

The space

The house is a small family, 4-season home, nestled on the shores of the Medomack river and situated on 2-acres of land. It was built by my grandfather right after the war in the 1947. Most of the house was constructed out of reclaimed material. The water is sourced from an artesian well.

On the land, live many different species of fruit trees and bushes.

When you come to this home, the clock slows down. This home is ideal for a quiet retreat close to many mid-coast attractions.

Home has a brand new stove as of May 2017!

Long term rentals (especially during the winter months) are welcome!

NOTE: For travelers with mobility issues - There is a grassy decline from the driveway down to the front door. If you have mobility issues you may want to consider an booking an alternative property.

Ryan and Mary's cottage is a lovely home filled with many country style accents. It was clean and there was plenty of space for my wife and I and our 4 children. The yard is very pleasant and filled with pear trees and other flowers and plants. If you dare to venture a little farther you are rewarded with a nice view of one of the area's many bays. The cottage is close to Waldoboro center and many amenities. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a great time. The cottage was charming and beautifully furnished. It had a lot of atmosphere and was nearby to Camden Hills State Park, which was a wonderful day out. Ryan was very helpful and responsive to any queries. If we are in the area again in future we would love to stay again!

My family of four had an excellent stay at Ryan's cottage. The 2 bedrooms and 3 beds were excellent for our family along with the 2 bathrooms. Kitchen was well-stocked for cooking. Was perfect having a washer/dryer to use. Nice amount of yard for the kids to run around in. Lots of antiques in the house which adds to its charm. Was a good base area to explore around the coast of Maine. Just make sure you have a vehicle to get around as there is no public transit nearby that I know of. Communication with Ryan and his mom Mary was excellent, they were always really fast to reply to any of my questions. Thanks for everything!

Love staying here. This is my 2nd time to stay. This is a perfect cottage. I do not have to worry that it wont be clean - because it is spotless. I feel like i am staying at my own house because of the comfort level. I also feel very safe there. The location is perfect. Many places to visit that are very close. It has everything you need to feel "at home". I have and will continue to recommend this place for anyone going to Maine.

My partner and I live and work in Boston.

We never intended to become Airbnb hosts but we love it and it has become our passion!

We spend our free time working on our home, enjoying our families, cooking fun dinners, going to the movies and playing with our two rambunctious cats.

We keep our house neat and tidy and do the same when we travel whether we stay in a hotel or a friend's home.

Let's explore the world!
