I have been travelling to this area for over 40 years, most recently staying in a variety of homes available for rental. This beautiful home was by far and away the nicest, cleanest, best equipped house we have had the pleasure of renting. From the moment we walked in the door we realized the home was unique. Beautifully decorated, wonderfully and thoroughly equipped, and remarkably situated the home offered all one could want for a Downeast get away.It was a home that you didn't feel like you needed to leave to enjoy the day. We took several long adventures in the provided kayaks, sat on the porch and watched eagles and other shorebirds hunt for their supper. It was so quiet and serene that one could just be peace with their thoughts. The owners are very kind and helpful and excellent communicators. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to any one. It is a rarity in the rental world, a well cared for, spotlessly clean home that is so comfortable you will feel as if it is YOUR home.
As for the general area, as I said, it is a place I traveled to as a boy and have brought my family to for the past several years. It is a place that allows you...almost forces you...to slow down a bit. There are so many things to do and see, but all are can and should be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. There are many available places of natural beauty and the opportunities to see eagles, seals, whales, and a host of other birds is something my family enjoyed a great deal.
We especially enjoyed a kayak trip deep into Morong cove that we timed so the incoming tide helped push us deep up into the creeks at the head of the cove, and then rode the outgoing tidal currents to get back "home". It was a tiring but wonderful adventure.
I feel it is always nice to have places that can stick in your brain and offer comfort when you are having a tough work day. The "seaside sanctuary" has often been in my day dreams since our visit and I look forward to returning next summer.
