Review from Jill in ME: Dear Chris,
Just got back from a week at the house, I'm all ready for work to begin. Drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves after a day of exploring along the rocks, visiting with the seals, whale watching, or just watching the sun set and the moon rise was just perfect! The memories will keep me until my next vacation. Reserve the third week in July for me for next year.
Review from Dee Sordillo in MA: I've re-read my journal - and my memory and my recorded word match. Both my husband and I were speechless on first seeing the location. We arrived in the dead of night and found the rooms warm and very welcoming, immaculate and every comfort item covered. But - the best awaited til morning. The spectacular view takes your breath away Every morning the same vantage point gives a totally different view and feel. My pictures cannot express the beauty. Enjoy - Enjoy - Enjoy Dee Sordillo
If you are a seafood lover, especially haddock - you'll think you are in heaven.

Chris purchased this house in 2005
Why Chris chose Digby
Location location location! Because of where it is...At the end of the mainland. The house was specifically designed to maximize the location. When you sit in the great room, in the dining room, on the deck, or even as you open your eyes in the morning, you'll see and hear the ocean...every day. At night you'll see the stars, and if the moon is out you'll see it's reflection on the water...That is, when you look away from the crackling fire in the massive fireplace defined by its solid hand hewn timber mantle salvaged from an historic barn.
What makes this house unique
A gated entry to the private peninsula. Your own seal colony just steps away, private forest paths along the rocky seaside cliffs, a gourmet kitchen, huge dining area that comfortably seats everyone plus a lucky guest or two, an even larger deck, and enough space so everyone can be together or alone as they choose.
