“The sweeping views out over Penobscot Bay from our cottage were matched by an impressive display of perennial flower borders scattered with care all around this Eden-like landscape.”
A virtual Garden of Eden sits on the property, with several acres of stunning flowers in clusters with individually shaped borders. Most impressive, the buildings and gardens were constructed pioneer-like, by Cedarholm Garden Bay Inn owners George and Kristin Palmer and her parents over a dozen years ago.” – Chiles T. A. Larson travel writer, author and photojournalist

For privacy, views and uniqueness, you can’t beat these cottages, and they’ve won accolades from the national media again and again.”
