3BR Waterfront Vacation Rental, sleeps 6-7, Waldoboro, Maine USA
I spent my summers growing up in Maine and introduced my husband to it before we were married. He (happily!) loved it as much as I did and 13 years ago we decided to look for our own place on the coast. We love spending time at Yellow Dog Cottage whenever we get the chance and also love sharing it with our guests.
Katharine purchased this House in 2003
Why Katharine chose Waldoboro
We fell in love with this property before we even got out of the car. I remember stepping out of the car on a beautiful November day, instantly in love with the view and the remarkable quiet. We actually purchased the house without ever having been inside, relying just on our peeks through the windows and the photos my parents took on a walk through they generously did for us after we had to return home. We still love spending time there, excited to arrive and sad to leave.
What makes this House unique
We love our house and the area. Waldoboro is a bit sleepy, even in the summer, off the main tourist path but with just enough to do. Many people familiar with the coast of Maine haven't heard of it, which is just how we like it. It's a great central location for day trips to all the wonderful places Maine has to offer.

Lovely and Comfortable
Very clean and comfortable house. Lots of room, great water view from the big living room picture window, porch and yard. The house itself is a bit noisy (buzzing, humming sound of pump or something) but didn't keep us from sleeping. Overall a great base for exploring the surrounding towns of Camden, Rockland, Boothbay, etc. Don't miss the Farnsworth museum and Olson House tours if your a Wyeth fan.
Off-the-beaten-track Maine getaway
We visited off-season -- too cold to go swimming, but a wonderful waterfront location where you can watch the lobster boats, watch and hear the loons and enjoy the fall colors and lovely sunsets. A very comfortable and well stocked, cozy home.
Great view and lobster delivered to the pier. Who could ask for more??
Clean, great water view and access. Didn't realize that the dock sat on land at low tide. Caretaker was fabulous and helpful with our small boat. Lt us use a dinghy and a mooring.
Love this spot
This is a great choice if you are looking to stay on the water in Maine. Easy access to Route 1 and surrounding Mid-Coast places of interest, easy to put in kayaks, superb sunsets and wildlife. We hope to go back again.
The setting is gorgeous and the cottage was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. This was our second trip to Yellow Dog Cottage and we'd definitely go again.
