Welcome to Flood's Cove,
America's most beautiful vacation spot!
Flood's Cove has been offering the Maine vacation
experience for well over one hundred years. Located in
Friendship, Maine, Flood's Cove is about ten miles from
Waldoboro, twenty miles from Camden, forty miles from
Freeport and the home of L.L. Bean, and fifty miles from
Portland. Join the generations of families that agree
this is the most relaxing traditional ocean front Maine
vacation you will ever find. Many of our guests return
year after year because they are so pleased. . .some for
15, 18 and even fifty years.
Flood's Cove offers ocean front rental of summer
cottages, island camp sites for sea kayakers and
romantic weddings that overlook the ocean. What better
way to compliment your relaxing vacation than to go
fishing and catch sea mackerel, go for a nice wooded
hike or walk around any number of the islands that are
just off shore, spend the day kayaking in our
complimentary kayaks, get as dirty as you have ever been
as you dig for clams and pick mussels? Imagine the
smell as you cook your clams, mussels and mackerel on an
open rock fire while listening to the waves as they roll
ashore just feet from the fire.
With no undertow, the beaches are safe and the water enjoyable. There are many
fun places for children to play, swim, and enjoy the wonders of the Maine coast.
The cottage rental
fee includes the use of kayaks and a good safe rowboat which is suitable for a
ten horsepower motor (not provided). The island sea kayaking camp site rentals
include the use of a Flood’s Cove exclusive three sided outhouse, fresh water to
fill up your water jugs for the next day’s journey and trash dumping once you
place your trash in our trash can that are located on the dock.
All of our
cottages have direct views to the sea with attractive locations. Guests have
access to sixty-five acres including a mile and a half of shore frontage,
including a half mile long island. Household necessities such as utensils,
cookware and blankets are provided. Guests must furnish their own linens
(sheets, towels, dish clothes etc.) Each cottage has an electric stove,
refrigerator and shower. Each cottage has either a large fieldstone fireplace
or a woodstove for those chilly Maine nights. Wood can be purchased in the cove
or collected for free from the surrounding woods. There is a washer and dryer
available for the tenants to use for a nominal charge. Most cottages also
benefit from free Wireless Internet access.
You won't find
a more beautiful spot anywhere on the Maine coast. There are some of us that
think you won't find a prettier spot on the planet.
