The Beehive


Our calendar is updated in real-time & our nightly rates are accurately displayed. Simply enter your desired dates and click 'Book Now!'



Beautifully located near the very end of coveted Stones Point Road, The Beehive is pure and simple with views of Muscongus Bay from virtually every window.



What began in 1953 as a family campsite has evolved into today’s elegant seaside cottage. The Beehive is currently under third-generation ownership, providing guests with a serene setting and comfortable hospitality. Sip your morning coffee as you watch the lobster boats head out from nearby Cushing Harbor, catch afternoon glimpses of the neighborhood bald eagle, and punctuate your evenings with lobster bakes and stories around the firepit as the stars fill the clear sky.



The Beehive is a place for quiet reflection or to use as a home base while exploring the busier areas of coastal Maine. It's close enough to popular harbor towns for activities, yet far away enough to allow you to enjoy the peace of the tide coming in and out of the little harbor.



Admire views of the ocean from the moment you walk in the door. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, a farm-style sink, and granite countertops that are spacious enough to prepare meals or set out light bites in the afternoon. The living room offers plush seating for movie time on rainy days; there are also floor pillows and blankets to go along with the board games and small library in the sitting room. The cable TV is equipped to stream movies and play your favorite music from your mobile device. And of course, there's free WiFi throughout the cottage and grounds - but this is also a perfect time to disconnect from the everyday.



The primary bedroom has such thoughtful features as darkening privacy shades, reading lamps, USB outlets for charging your devices, another TV with the same features as the living room TV, and an alarm clock equipped with an AUX cord for listening to music from your mobile device.



The porch can be accessed from the bedroom and the dining room. Outside you'll find two rocking chairs, a railing with enough space to set your coffee cup or glass of wine, and an uncovered stone patio area with an outdoor dining area.

    Beautiful Maine Retreat

    This was the most beautiful little cottage. It is perfectly situated on the water with an amazing view every day. It was so quiet and serene. You can easily sit on the porch and just watch the water and the wildlife. The house is lovely with everything you could need for a short or extended stay. It was the perfect size for 2 people. There is a little loft with another bed, we never used it, but you could go with an older child. It is at the top of a ladder so it would not be good for a small child or person with mobility issues, but it would be a nice little hang out for an older child. The pictures do not do this place justice. We just loved our stay and could easily see ourselves going back.

    So missed some amenities

    We love the Bee Hive! But... we missed the home like coziness we experienced in past stays. The bedding and linens were sparce to say the least. And the plush cozy throws to cuddle up with we’re not n existent. Also, a few kitchen utensils like knives that cut, kitchen scissors and pots and pans need to be replenished.. Coffee grinder as well.

    Great place for a getaway

    We recently had a week-long stay. The property was as listed, very clean, amazing water view, plenty of space for a couple for the week. Would definitely recommend this to others in the future. There is also a nature preserve across the street from the road entrance to the cottage so a local hike is close by and within a short walking distance from the cottage.
