We stayed in the First Light Cottage for our 25th Anniversary. As we drove into the driveway we quickly discovered how breathtaking the view were of the Sheepscot River. The "cottage" was actually a "castle" on the hill. It had every amenity you could think of and was incredibly clean. All of the rooms were well stocked with towels and the bedding was so cozy. THe kitchen was perfectly spacious and had a number of good sized pots for my crew. I will be back with more of my gang in the Spring. Thank Connie!

This was our first holiday visit to Maine, and we could not have chosen a more perfect rental. The home is even more beautiful and welcoming than advertised and provided the perfect base for exploring all that the mid-coast has to offer. The owners, it seems, have thought of everything. It is clear from the renovations and amenities that great care was taken to help vacationers like us feel completely at home. Details like the availability of a telescope and high quality binoculars let us easily enjoy watching the harbor seals cavort in the water. What a treat. The dock and pier, just a short walk down the hill from the house, proved a terrific venue for picnicking and just hanging out. We made extensive use of the two person kayak to explore the coastline. Be sure to keep an eye out as the lobstermen come by to check their traps! Connie was great to deal with. Very responsive in every way. We can't wait for next year!

The First Light Cottage is by far the most beautiful place we have ever rented. It is spacious and fabulously decorated. It is not a typical rental property for sure. We loved having a cup of morning coffee on the little screen deck off the master bedroom and even caught the sunrise once or twice. The views are incredible and we enjoyed watching the sailboats and lobster boats go by. The cottage is located in a very quiet area. We took long walks and enjoyed every minute of the vacation. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and always quick to respond to our questions. So glad we discovered this place and can't wait to go back

A great vacation spot!

My husband and I stayed at this cottage last year. It has a great location on a private road which is nice for morning walks. The cottage is very clean and spacious. It is great to come back to the cottage at the end of a day of exploring as it is a very relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend this for a quiet or romantic get-a-way or for 2 or 3 couples traveling together. If you are a kayaker or boater it has an incredible dock. The owners are very nice and quite helpful in answering all our questions. We are looking forward to our return visit.
