Guestbook comments from the manager
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!

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.
Quiet and away from the busy main streets of town but close enough (7-miles) for convenient access for food shopping nd other supplies. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and serene. 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'.
