Magificent Maine Memories

  • 5 of 5
My husband, his sister, our adult daughter, and I had an absolutely fabulous stay at Laurie & David's property. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a welcome tray of a variety of wonderful Maine goodies such as blueberry cookies, cheese/crackers/ chilled wine, "Wild Maine Blueberry Jam," chocolate covered cranberries, and pancake mix with fixings including maple syrup! There was everything you could possibly need from an abundance of fresh linens, to an abundance of cookware, to an abundance of the most gorgeous sunrises ever. All of their items like the bathroom amenities, cleaning supplies, air fresheners, etc. were all eco-friendly. They even had a very organized system of disposing of food garbage for the compost pile in airtight containers, along with several labeled trash containers for paper, cans, glass, etc. There was a well kept Welcome Notebook with detailed instructions, contact info for reaching them, and a thorough list of things to do in the area. We went hiking in the Acadia National Park and saw the Thunder Hole. The rock filled beaches there are so very different from the ones to which we are accumstomed in Norfolk & Va. Beach. We drove to West Quoddy Head Lighthouse (the most eastern point of Continental U.S.) near Lubec, ME, where we found Tayla, the friendliest waitress at the Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant and had a terrific lobster dinner. We took the 2.5 hour Sea Princess boat cruise out of Northeast Harbor around some of the islands nearby including a short visit on shore at Little Cranberry Island and a trip into & out of the Somes Sound Fjord. While sailing, there were harbor seals, a blue heron, and a plethora of seagulls out for viewing. But at the end of every day, it was such a delight to return to this lovely dwelling and enjoy the relaxation and refreshing it offered. This retreat is HIGHLY recommendation - except that it is entirely too difficult to leave.

Great September Stay on Frenchman Bay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect house and location for our stay in Maine. The view from the back of the house was beautiful, the house was very comfortable and well stocked! The welcome basket was a truly unexpected surprise and much enjoyed. Thanks to David and Laurie for making our vacation a memorable one!

Great House-Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Loved this house!! Super clean, beautiful gardens, everything you could possibly need is provided. Amazing views, every morning we enjoyed watching the family of deer eating from the apple tree. This was the perfect location for day trips and so nice to come home to the beauty and quiet of this wonderful house. You'll be amazed at how peaceful and quiet it is. The Welcome Basket loaded with Maine treats and the fresh flowers were so nice...thank you Laurie and David

Simply Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5
This was the second year vacationing in Acadia with my wife and now 12 year old daughter and we were all very pleasantly surprised. Gorgeous views from the rear of the house and a lovely and well maintained garden in the front. A walk down to the yard brings you right to the water where you can see eagles flying by or feeding on a rock nearby. We liked the location which is central to everything we wanted (if you prefer to be off island, which is about 15 minutes away). The house is well maintained and impeccably clean on arrival, and the gift basket waiting for us filled with Maine treats was a nice touch. I'd recommend this property without any hesitation : )

Frenchman Bay Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We chose this frenchman bay retreat for our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better place! It was beautiful landscape, and the inside of the house was gorgeous. It was truly a dream house. Laurie and David were nice enough to have a cute welcome basket with wine, chocolates, coffee, and so many other things that were from the area. There are huge sliding glass doors that showed off the view of the bay. The pictures definitely didn't do justice! The upstairs has a huge double head shower and a nice jet tub. When we go back we would probably go in September because a good amount of the restaurants were closed for the season but everything was so beautiful with the leaves changing.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Incredibly beautiful house, property and views. Wonderfully peaceful, private and serene. It was everything we were looking for and more. So many nice touches in the house really made us feel at home! The very close proximity to Acadia, Mt. Desert Island, Schoodic Point, and Bar Harbor provided many choices for things to do when we weren't staying at the house to enjoy the views. A fantastic vacation - thanks Dave and Laurie!
