Lovely Maine Coast Home

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful as shown in the photos. The home is clean, well-maintained, very interesting, and comfortable. We had an issue with smoke alarms going off randomly and the owners were readily available and very helpful in resolving that. I think it should be noted somewhere that the kitchen is on the lower level and living room is on the second level. It seems that it might be a great arrangement with kids coming in and out, but we had some older adults and that meant having to go up and down stairs - not a problem, just something to be aware of. We had a great stay and I would be happy to recommend the property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. As you know, we found the culprit smoke alarm. We have replaced it with a new one. We appreciate your comment on the kitchen location. We decided to put it on the lower level as it makes it contiguous to the 40 foot veranda where guests like to dine and is also close to the grilling area outside. In addition, we decided to put the dining room right beside the kitchen in case guests wish to dine inside.

Amazing House & Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house last weekend for our family to stay while our daughter was married in Friendship. We were blown away by the beauty of this house and location. There were ten of us and we enjoyed our time at the house very much. We made some wonderful memories and can't stop talking about it. It is very convenient to stores, restaurants and beautiful scenery. The house was well stocked and clean. It was a pleasure dealing with Vered (owner) and she made the process stress-free for the mother of the bride. Everything was perfect and I would definitely recommend this lovely place. We would like to go back sometime when we can truly enjoy the place and spend much more time there.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! It's wondeful to hear that the wedding went off well and that you were all able to enjoy yourselves at the house. We hope to see you again soon! -Vered

An oasis on the coast!

A great retreat to return to after exploring the Maine's mid-coast! We really enjoyed the quiet beauty. Interesting architectural details and a view that is wonderful! We had a happy week.

best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is one awesome vacation spot. We are a crazy busy family during the year and this one week at this beautiful spot gets us through the year. From the moment you arrive you start to relax, there are no greater views than the ones you get just sitting in the back yard.

The house is large, but has a very homey comfortable feeling, everything you need is right there.

There's no need to venture out , but Martins point just a few miles down the road has spectacular views. Camden is an easy ride as well.

Some of my most precious memories are of spending time with my family (dog included) at this wonderful spot.

I cry each year when the week comes to an end!

Superb!!!

  • 5 of 5

We scheduled our stay to coincide with the full moon. Stay was huge success. House was immaculate upon arrival. Extremely convenient to grocer, seafood, fine wines, restaurants and Penobscot Bay.

Hope to return for winter spring and summer stays in the years to come.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the wonderful experience of staying at the “Friendship House” Aug 17-24. Some of us came from Clarkston Michigan and some of us came from Germany. The house, the location, the water, the nature- we loved it all. The house was large and beautiful, and layed out in a way that allowed all three families (with kids) enough privacy- while providing wonderful common areas to enjoy the entire group in complete comfort. We had fun swimming on the beach and playing soccer in the huge yard, and reading and relaxing on the back porch. The kitchen is well stocked and we took full advantage enjoying an entire week of nearly all home-cooked meals around the large dining table which easily accommodated all 10 of us. Definitely a place we’d love to return to. Highly recommend the Friendship House for a relaxing and fun vacation in a gorgeous home and unbeatable setting. Exactly what we wanted in a vacation rental!
