FULLY EQUIPPED

  • 5 of 5
This home is a perfect place for a couple. We loved it! Saw awesome sunsets from the porch, walked to the ice cream store and the great gift shop at the end of the road. The home is clean, well equipped and a home away from home. Ann is wonderful to deal with. The beaches we went to were beautiful, 40 min away and beware of tides...Maine is a beautiful state, and our visit was fantastic...

LOVELY HOME, BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
A genuine Maine home in very nice condition. Ann had the place spotless and we felt comfortable in no time. Beds were comfortable and kitchen very well equipped. This is is cozy home so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is looking for starter mansion while on vacation. We loved it!

The sunsets are spectacular. The end of the island and ice cream shop are in easy walking distance.

Highly recommend it!
