Our stay started in the evening, so we were not able to get the full impression of the home until the morning. That first evening was spent casually touring the home and all it had to offer, which was everything you could really need for a little vacation and more. From the wonderfully laid out kitchen, to the open living room and dining room, there was little need for anything to be comfortable. The cozy den in the cornerof the home, sharing a fireplace with the living room was a lovely start to our first morning. Of course, the views were terrific and from the roof top deck, you can see a 360 panorama of Casco Bay and Harpswell Sound. World famous Cooks Lobster House is clearly visible from the dining room and front deck and well within walking distance. That first morning did pose the first issue we experienced during our stay in that the bed was so comfortable and the sunlight streaming through the windows made it difficult to get up (a problem we faced each morning).
We renewed our wedding vows that Saturday and had no issues with parking (there's a little spot to park extra cars just before you reach the house on the main road). There was never a question whether or not we could entertain the number of people who arrived and all the room provided us an wonderful, intimate and easy gathering of family and friends. With some hired kitchen help, the lobster, clams and beverages flowed throughout the afternoon and everyone was sated. There was plenty of seating for everyone, and room for the kids to move around (the basement houses a wonderful entertainment area that resembles a small movie theater and most of the kids spent their time there).
Overall, our trip was wonderful and we hope to plan another stay there soon. I have suggested this venue to several friends and passed the pictures on to them. A wonderful home away from home.
