My husband, his sister, our adult daughter, and I had an absolutely fabulous stay at Laurie & David's property. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a welcome tray of a variety of wonderful Maine goodies such as blueberry cookies, cheese/crackers/ chilled wine, "Wild Maine Blueberry Jam," chocolate covered cranberries, and pancake mix with fixings including maple syrup! There was everything you could possibly need from an abundance of fresh linens, to an abundance of cookware, to an abundance of the most gorgeous sunrises ever. All of their items like the bathroom amenities, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, etc. were all eco-friendly. They even had a very organized system of disposing of food garbage for the compost pile in airtight containers, along with several labeled trash containers for paper, cans, glass, etc. There was a well kept Welcome Notebook with detailed instructions, contact info for reaching them, and a thorough list of things to do in the area. We went hiking in the Acadia National Park and saw the Thunder Hole. The rock filled beaches there are so very different from the ones to which we are accumstomed in Norfolk & Va. Beach. We drove to West Quoddy Head Lighthouse (the most eastern point of Continental U.S.) near Lubec, ME, where we found Tayla, the friendliest waitress at the Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant and had a terrific lobster dinner. We took the 2.5 hour Sea Princess boat cruise out of Northeast Harbor around some of the islands nearby including a short visit on shore at Little Cranberry Island and a trip into & out of the Somes Sound Fjord. While sailing, there were harbor seals, a blue heron, and a plethora of seagulls out for viewing. But at the end of every day, it was such a delight to return to this lovely dwelling and enjoy the relaxation and refreshing it offered. This retreat is HIGHLY recommendation - except that it is entirely too difficult to leave.
