Ken Gray's Bristol Cottage
October 21, 2014
I am a Maine native living in FL. I wanted to take my elderly Mom to Maine for one last visit. We rented Ken's cottage and had the greatest week of my life. The Ocean views were breath taking. The cottage was right off the ocean cove. The cottage itself was beautiful. The front consisted of large windows and at night I would fall to sleep listening to the ocean waves. I highly recommend this property. I would rent it again in a heart beat. . Thanks, Ken for a wonderful week with my Mom.
Jim, I am glad you had a great time at the cottage. it is a special location on the Pemaquid Peninsula and has a wonderful view of Muscongus Bay. Hopefully next year we will have a couple of kayaks at the beach which will allow renters to enjoy the ocean waves. thanks for takiing nice care of our cottage. Ken & Becca
