SUMMER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our second time renting here, and have had a great experience both times. The views from this property are spectacular (and having grown up on the coast of Maine I am used to pretty views). The panoramic includes the hills as far east as Camden, and past Castine to the West, with the panoramic made more beautiful because the property sits up on stone ledge/bluff/cliff that is about 40 feet above sea level.
The setting is very quiet and peaceful. Walking the beach on Sunday morning the porpoises sounded like whales because it was this quiet (no kidding). There is no traffic noise at this location from a highway, a local road, the street on which the house sits . . . none. There is a pig next door . . . but we have never heard it (really). We only saw it once. The stars at night from the deck are beautiful (can see the Milky Way when the moon is not out); the sunsets are beautiful.
The house itself was fine. It was clean, has all the amenities, and the owner is very helpful if you need something. It is an 'open' floor plan so early in the morning or late at night one needs to take care to be quiet, but we had no issues with this. There is access to sea kayaks and bikes at the house.
There also is loads to do within an hour of Stockton Springs in terms of history and art: a state park down the peninsula that you can walk to and go swimming off of the pier; Camden; Wyeth museum in Rockland; Castine (French, English, Dutch, neat local museum); Belfast (old district is beautiful and has an excellent, high end restaurant . . . Del Vino's?). A little further away are museums in Brunswick (Bowdoin) and Waterville (Colby), both with world class exhibits from time to time, often in the summer to coincide with the tourist season. The beach on which the house is located is a stone beach and searching for sea glass is fun..
So, this is a neat place to spend a week! (or two . . . and I am in no way related to the owner).

FABULOUS TIME AT A SPECIAL PLACE IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from spending another wonderful week at this great home in Maine. The views are spectacular and I especially love looking out the front bedroom window at night and seeing the stars and the ocean from the bed. The beach is fun to walk and collect seaglass. The owner is lovely. We met the pot bellied pet pig next door and it is very cute. He did not make any noise while we were there. This home is off the beaten path and offers a very relaxing and quiet vacation. You can walk to Fort Point Lighthouse just down the road or walk around Cape Jellison. Searsport, Belfast, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are easy drives and provide shopping, nature, hiking, biking, exploring the Maine coast, arts and dining. Or relax on the deck and enjoy the gardens and ocean life. We saw seals and dolphins on this trip.

Two of the bedrooms are loft style with cutouts overlooking the first floor with one looking out windows to the ocean. We had four adults and had no problems with noise. The house was clean, as always, and very inviting.

We plan on coming back and renting this house next year. From reading the one negative review on this home, I assume this person was someone who wanted to find fault with this place. This is a lovely home and I'm happy it is available for rent so I can spend time in one of my favorite places. Maine!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six spent a wonderful vacation this summer here. In fact we enjoyed it so much that we have booked several weeks next summer. The house is large, clean, and very comfortable. There is a spectacular view from nearly every room, and the long typical rocky Maine beach is just steps away. We enjoyed getting a glimpse of the funny little pet pig next door while we played croquet on the large lawn overlooking the Penobscot Bay. The gardens are lovely and the charming owner is delightful and helpful.

We had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful Maine Coast Contemporary for two months & then again for nine months. What a joy! How wonderful it was to enjoy the sunsets, to hear the seals, & to stay in an open-concept post-&-beam on the ledges of Penobscot Bay!

MID-COAST MAINE VACATION GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
I have been a guest here in 2009 and 2010, and anticipate returning in 2011 once I have dates confirmed. It is an open, spacious home with an incredible morning view from the master bedroom and first floor dining area. The house is set well back from the road, with foliage and large lots affording privacy on either side. The adjacent state park has numerous walking trails as well as the picturesque lighthouse and historical markers. Easy access to Acadia National Park and other popular locations along Mid-coast and Down East Maine make this an ideal vacation get-away. I fell in love with this vacation retreat on my first visit, and hope it continues to be available for future visits.

I was surprised to find another reviewer’s negative comments. The bedrooms, and two full bathrooms are all on the second floor and completely separate from the first floor living area. Doors to each bedroom assure privacy and we did not experience any noise issues. The home was properly cleaned and prepared for our arrival.

NOT FOR KIDS AT ALL OR PEOPLE WHO WANT SLEEP

  • 2 of 5
we just finished a week at this home. The view is beautiful but that was about it. I doubt it was cleaned prior to our arrival. It is offensive that the owner would take money on top of the weekly fee and give it to us so dirty. The home is advertised as a 3 bedroom. It is really a 2 bedroom. The 3rd room is is so small I nearly hit my head every time I went to the far bed to check on my kid. There was a small closet for clothes. The home had so much of the owners things it is cluttered. The neighbor has a pig. Yes a cute little pig. We had to listen to it's squealing everyday. Very annoying at night. We were taken by the openess of the bedrooms with no sound barrier. So when the kids went to sleep we had to be silent. Noise traveled very loudly all over the home. Sheets were old and worn. It truly felt like the owner (who is lovely to deal with) decided to rent her home out and tossed whatever she had together. As much as I love my family I would never go back to this home. I can not commend this home and let someone else spend the money we did. Sorry to disappoint anyone.
