Dorsey Cottage - On a quiet cove
July 19, 2023
Lovely cottage in a beautiful natural setting. Visitors included foxes, deer and a pair of blue herons. Beautiful view…very private and relaxing spot.

Looking forward to renting next year. Only one recommendation- install stair railing to second floor. We are still mobile and healthy but a hand rail on stairs is a simple safety assist for all ages. Cheers

Dorsey Cottage was perfect in so many ways. Location was excellent, loved a glass of wine on the deck. What a view, that included sunrises and sunsets. Roomy for four people, yet cozy. Most certainly is a vacation spot, I would recommend.

Amazing, incredible views of the bay and a little cove! We spent quite a bit of time watching the tide go in and out of the cove throughout the day and the birds hanging out on the sandbar! Very quiet area and cottage was clean and in good condition. Lots of local books to look at in the cottage. Beds were comfortable, but I wish there was a dresser or cabinet to put your clothes into!

We had the most wonderful time at Dorsey Cottage. The weather was far from perfect, yet it still was such a beautiful setting. The view from the living room is so lovely that even though we had a few days of rain, the setting made it so you didn’t feel the need to venture out.
A perfect country coveside cottage

A little out of the way, but with a nice view of the tides. We loved the fireplace, tea, and the board games. The whole house, especially the kitchen was very well outfitted.
A Great place to call home.
Cute little house.

We enjoyed our week at Dorsey Cottage very much- perfect location to relax at the property, go swimming at high tide or for a walk at low tide.
Well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room with great views. Good location to explore Deer Island.
We would love to come back

The property was given to me as an alternative to another property I had reserved that was overbooked. It was far better than the pictures present it as and a calm and private little slice of tranquility on the Eggemoggin Reach. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
Traditional Maine Getaway

Dorsey Cottage is what you imagine to be the old-school, traditional family vacation in Maine. Quiet, peaceful, isolated. It is an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. We could launch kayaks into the cove and bay within feet of the cottage, and we could walk for hours on the tidal flats at low tide. The views and cottage are better in person than in the listing pics.

My stay way magical. I saw deer, fox, mischievous blue jays, I was scolded by grey and red squirrels, and three times was lucky enough to see a juvenile Bald Eagle follow the coast to the river and start his flight inland. I was able to rest and recharge and heal and contemplate.
You do feel very much alone – the only neighbors far enough away not to see through the copse. There are plenty of hunters around – so if you’re here in the fall be sure to bring your orange. And try not to sing at the top of your lungs. Apparently, it bothers the hunters – and to all of them – I apologize!
A truly magical vacation. Thank you for the gift of the stay.
Great quiet location

This was a perfect location for a quiet get away to enjoy the fall colors.
