Charming, very comfortable house!
Submitted: April 3, 2013

I and my two dogs stayed in Marcy's house during the month of March, 2013. It is situated in a piney woods next to Harpswell Cove, which makes the setting peaceful and quiet. Yet, the owners - very nice private people who entirely keep to themselves - live in a barn next door. This makes the rental house feel secluded, yet safe. Only a 3 mile drive to Brunswick, which has a lot to offer - good restaurants (especially the amazing 'Frontier'), excellent independent bookstore - The Gulf of Maine, an old fashioned movie theater, a good Hannafords, well stocked health food store, and a Farmer's Market, even in winter. My dogs and I enjoyed hiking on the many trails, bike paths and beaches - all in short driving distance. Popham Beach, in Phippsburg, near Bath is spectacular. And Reid State Park about a half hour away. Good shopping in Freeport, very close. The house itself has an excellent kitchen with gas stove, quality pots and pans. A cozy soapstone woodstove. 3 very comfortable beds with new mattresses, and nice linens. Nice dining table that I used as an office when I didn't have guests for dinner. Everything was spotless. The master bedroom even has a jacuzzi with special tiles made by the builder's children. Tiled floor in entry and kitchen was good for muddy dog feet, easy to quickly mop. All the amenities worked well - TV, internet, my ATT cell. But the best thing about the house is that I got the feeling it was built with love. So many nice details, so personal. It just has this great feeling when you walk in, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Would go back any time. Marcy is great to work with too - and helpful about local info, so I give this whole place my highest recommendation.
