Owners: Michael & Rhonda Boyett: We are both professionals working in the Healthcare industry. We love to travel and have visited many coastal areas (East coast, West coast & Hawaii) in the USA. We've successfully raised two children who are now college graduates and pursuing their own professional careers (Attorney & Nurse). We are originally from the east coast (Maine & Virginia) and moved to California in the 80's. We still have family in Maine and visit often.

Please direct all inquiries to our property manager, Heather Allen @ Your Island Connection, LLC. YIC, LLC has served the local islands for over 30-years. Heather and her assistant, Michaela Bichrest, can answer any and all questions about this unique & popular area of Maine. They can also provide complete instructions for booking, payment and other similar requirements.

property managers, Heather Allen/Michaela Bichrest for addl info & booking info purchased this house in 2009

My parents completed this spec home in 1992 after my father retired from the Navy. We fell in love with the place, visiting numerous times with our children during the '90's; fishing, going out on lobster runs with my Dad and just relaxing. My parents intention was to pass the property on to their kids. With my Dad's passing, Mom finally reached a point where she could no longer take care of the place alone. We purchased the property in the summer of 2009 as our second home. We have had numerous friends comment on how beautiful the property and area are and expressing a desire to stay. It was then we decided to offer it as a vacation rental so others could share in the beauty & tranquility of this place.

The neighborhood is extremely quiet and safe. The neighbors are friendly and very respectful of each others privacy. For us, this place offers a great escape from the day to day stresses of our jobs. This is one of the few places we have ever been that truly allows us to completely unwind and 'recharge'.

The Way Life Should Be!

We came back to Maine (after 18-years) to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Maine is where we met, got married and our youngest child was born. Thoroughly enjoyed re-visiting some of our favorite places like Maxwell's Restaurant in Bath.

To our hosts of this beautiful place, we say thank you and see you again soon. This place will be our first choice to reserve. Maine will always have a special place in our heart and your home just made it perfect!

The weather was spectacular. Enjoyed kayaking on the bay; Cigars, wine and star gazing on the dock; Biking at Cundy Harbor and nearby Harpswell; and Sunning/Reading (and a little fishing) on the dock.

We adore this home and had a picture perfect week... definitely plan to return next year. Thank you for everything. Your home is so warm, inviting and well equipped!!

We spent time with our son & daughter and enjoying family. Discovered great places to eat such as; Brunswick Diner, Chowder House in Boothbay, Maxwell's in Bath, Dolphin Inn on Bailey Island, Gurnett's Trading Post and, of course, cooking here at High View was fantastic! 14 lobsters, corn on the cob, fresh salad and whatever you could ask for.

Thanks for a really "wicked good" place to vacation! God bless you folks for affording us the opportunity to experience High View!

We came for a family reunion, renting yours and another home on the street. There were 16 people altogether (six at High View). It worked out great! The area and weather were wonderful. Your house was just the ticket to make us all feel at home. Very clean & comfortable. Thank you!

Very much enjoyed sitting on the deck and the view. Spent time at Popham State Beach. Most of all, simply relaxing with a home cooked plate of Lobster.
