AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL, CALMING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I just spent a wonderful time at Joy's studio. It is fantastic -- beautiful, clean, open, airy, i.e., everything you could want for a time away from everything. I spent my time writing and thinking, and soaked up the quiet calm of the studio and Joy's property. She has thought of everything; it's stocked with anything you could want (down to candles!) and she has set up wonderful nooks and crannies for her guests. She is a talented artist and a generous host--she took me out on her boat to see Stratton Island (a preserve) and go swimming. I am grateful for the time I was able to spend in her studio. It is a very special place. Thank you, Joy!

IF THERE WERE A 5+ RATING...

  • 5 of 5
We've just had the most wonderful long weekend here at Joy's studio in South Bristol. Not happy at all to be leaving today, as it feels that we've stumbled upon a little piece of heaven. Even during two rainy spring days, Joy's studio was bright and airy, warm and relaxing. So much of that is because of how Joy has created a space that is at once home-like and familiar, and also a special world apart.

Joy has included in her studio all the accoutrements you'd want in a well-set-up weekend cottage - all the comforts of home, and just as carefully chosen. Most appreciated by us were the beautiful works of art all around her studio, the fully outfitted kitchen with everything from a coffee grinder to high-quality knives and cast-iron pans, the nice little deck with feeders that draw an incredible variety of birds, and the thoughtful layout that manages to provide lots of different activity areas all in the space of a single open-plan room that feels much larger than it probably is thanks to the high-vaulted ceiling.

The grounds around her studio are also great, as the building is nestled in a northern hardwood and pine forest and surrounded by natural landscaping - with access to Long Cove is just a short walk through the woods.

Beyond her place being very nice, Joy is - as others have mentioned - a wonderfully warm and friendly host. It's no wonder the people who've found her studio come back again and again.

57 DAYS IN JOY'S STUDIO

57 Days in Joy's Studio
  • 5 of 5
I really cannot recommend Joy's studio (and surrounding element) enough! I just left after spending about 2 months working of music. The situation was sooooo ideal :) Joy was so accommodating with everything! She allowed me to have a piano moved into the little house behind her studio and gave me round-the-clock access to her bicycles and kayaks!! Joy is a joy to be around... so nice, so caring, so thoughtful. Her studio is nothing short of utopian. The working conditions were magnificent... I have never worked so consistently and for so many days straight in my life. Nearing the end of my stay I invited a few friends to stay and experience Joy's paradise. She was so tolerant of this and indeed joined us on a couple occasions "out on the town." Please give yourselves a wonderful gift and experience Joy's studio on the river if you can. She has forgotten nothing in order to make your stay soul-filling and restful.

PURE JOY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found this property to be even more lovely in person than it shows in the pictures. It is warm, inviting, comfy and beautifully decorated and incredibly well equipped. Joy's studio is located in a wooded setting with large windows and skylights galore that even on a cloudy day, everything looks bright and cheery. The deck offers a wonderful place to eat, read or watch the birds feed or see the stars and peaceful, private surroundings. Joy has provided a lovely binder of maps (some hand made) and information of the area. Damariscotta is a short 17 minute drive, which is a quaint year round town, not touristy, with lovely shops, activities, sites and restaurants.
Everything you need is provided for a comfortable stay, including a comfy bed with lovely bedding and linens. It is a magical place to enjoy your artful side, (this being an art studio) or you can just to relax reading or listening to the birds or music.
We recommend this rental without hesitation, just do not rent the week WE want to visit Joy's Haven.

GREAT VIBE

  • 5 of 5
Joy's Place is a true Joy to the visitor.
As you arrive in this studio you will find anything a good chef will require to prepare an excellent meal, her kitchen is fully equipped and the ingredients couldn't be fresher.
A few minutes down the road you will be exploring wonderful little towns, full of charming local shops and stunning sunsets.
It is definitely worth a trip.

THIS IS MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
I first stayed at Joy's place in June of 2005. Since then I have spent many weeks there in all seasons. It is and will continue to be a destination spot for me. I immediately felt right at home. I am ascetically driven and space oriented. Joy's place is an artist's studio with art and art supplies everywhere, a high ceiling and windows all about. Walking in is akin to stepping onto a palette or a piece of art in progress. The energy is palpable.
Joy herself is just that. Always responsive, ever enthusiastic, invisible and never intrusive.
In short, I give the absolute highest rating.
