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!

Wonderful Downeast Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My family of five stayed at this wonderful home last week. It is a beautiful, peaceful, new looking and very clean home as described in the listing. It is less than 30 minutes from Acadia National Park, even with summer traffic, and less than 15 minutes from Ellsworth shopping and grocery stores. We were treated to a Maine welcome basket and fresh flowers by the owners. The gardens are beautiful and much labor has been put into them. The owners stay next door and are available if you need them, but completely non-intrusive. We enjoyed a lobster boat ride that the owner captained. This is a great location, close to many of Maine's midcoast enjoyments, but as peaceful and quiet as can be. We could have stayed another week in this fantastic place and we thank Laurie and David for being such concerned and considerate hosts.

First-time Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family has rented many vacation homes throughout the United States over the past 15 years. We have had to rely on the pictures from the Internet and the owner's description. Many times we have been disappointed as the photos have not lived up to reality. Not in this case! In fact, we were more pleased that what we expected!
My husband and I and our two children (14/11) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Laurie and David's home in Lamoine. Laurie and David are hands-on owners and it shows in every way: the spotlessly clean home, the beatiful decorations and gardens, the wonderfully comfortable beds and linens, and every amenity to make each person's stay special. We were greeted by a very thoughtful gift basket and fresh flowers. I can't remember the last time I've had such a peaceful and uninterrupted sleep. The beds were the BEST. The house was the cleanest house we have stayed in. We had everything we needed, and more.
David is also the Captain of Quietside Cruises. We took an enjoyable cruise around the islands in Frenchman's Bay and were able to see seals, sea birds, and lobster fishing. A fun way to spend an early evening.
Thanks Laurie and David for a great vacation home!

Fabulous weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
From the gorgeous view, to eagles and their young feeding in the morning, this truly is a retreat. After spending all day on Mt. Desert Island, it was great to come home to our quiet and charming home. Laurie and I must think alike because everything in the kitchen was where I would have put it! Fabulous home and very nice folks that own it!

If you are a gardener, or a gardener "wannabee", this is the rental home for you!!
Unbelievably beautiful gardens!
