We stayed two weeks at Joy's Artist Studio, and it was perfect! A great location that's isolated enough for complete privacy, yet close to shopping, dining, and local attractions. We have never stayed in a place that was as light, bright, clean, and well-equipped.
It proved the perfect place from which to launch interesting day trips on mid-coastal Maine. Speaking of launching, paddling one of her kayaks in the river is a must-do, and she's happy to help you out with that. It's just a few short steps down to the water. Seals abound in this area of the river, and it's a real treat to sit and watch them at Very close range.
Joy's a wonderful hostess, and we couldn't recommend her studio apartment more highly.
