MAINE-HOME-LOCATION...COULDN'T BE BETTER!!!

MAINE-HOME-LOCATION...COULDN'T BE BETTER!!!
  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Maine from Florida for my family and some of my friends (8 of us), and we were not sure what to expect. First of all, the house is way more gorgeous than the pictures on the web site. The furnishings were very comfortable and top of the line; No campy furniture like some of the places we have been. The shower on the main floor is breathtaking and we understand was designed by Alden. The grounds and the gardens are just simply fabulous. So many little oasis's to sit and enjoy the views of the cove. We raided the strawberry patch, and the blueberry bushes were next.

It rained on the 4th and then again on the 5th. The kids were disappointed that the fireworks were cancelled. Alden provided a show of his own right from the dock on the water. Great show, kids loved it. At night we enjoyed having a fire at the outdoor pit and roasting Smores.

The kids loved that they could just walk to town and have their independence from us. The Ice Cream Factory was always their destination. This was very convenient location for all of us as we could come and go as we pleased and didn't have to worry about parking. Our favorite place to eat was the "Boat House Bistro", however, we just loved to stay at home and cook in the gourmet kitchen and dine on the deck or in the sun room overlooking the cove. The living room was large, but cozy and was a relaxing location for our family.

Alden was very helpful in directing us to various places to visit. One was the Pemaquid Lighthouse. Great family outing. Ocean Point and Barrett Park are beautiful places to spend the day.

The kids got to fish in the cove from the kayaks and our son caught a striped bass. What great fun. We never cooked lobster before and wanted to have a traditional lobster bake. Alden and Karen came over and showed us how to make the complete meal. What fun. Now we are pros......

We are sad to leave and right then decided to return to see more of Maine. We only hope that we can find a home and location as perfect as this was.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

DISAPPOINTED

  • 3 of 5
The owners greeted us on our arrival, and did not even know my name. I was very disappointed to find that the owners lived downstairs. It was not disclosed until our arrival. I felt like we were constantly being watched. You could hear the TV playing and dogs barking from downstairs. They spent one entire day out back weeding and mowing. We had 2 small children and were forced to stay inside. They kept a sprinkler going in the back, which with the ocean breeze made it impossible to eat on the deck and the use the backyard, without getting wet. I did not feel they were concerned at all about our time there. They have the best of both worlds, living there and collecting money.
The garbage compactor smelled very fishy. There were mice spotted in kitchen, thankfully not until our last night! The house is located right on a very busy street. It was noisy in the front bedroom. It was difficult sleeping. Did not feel it was worth the money and I am very surprised about the other reviews.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to read your review and to learn that you are disappointed with your stay at Mill Cove. It is unfortunate that you felt you could not speak to us about any conditions you were unhappy with. Our listing states that the owner maintains an apartment on site. This prevents us or any of our staff from having to come into the main house for water, or toilet facilities, while we care for the grounds. This has never been a problem in the three seasons we have rented Alden's family home. It is unusual for Alden or me to spend more than a day or two on premise. It just so happened that the winter was so long and the spring so cold and wet, that we could not get the gardens in before the rental season began.

The lawn, home and gardens are always maintained by us so that our guests will never have to experience strangers on the premises while they are trying to enjoy their vacation. We are deeply sorry that your were inconvenience by us watering the gardens so that there would be beautiful flowers and green grass for you and all of our guests to enjoy. Yes, we did water and weed for part of the day. It was extremely hot and the gardens were very dry. We explained to you what we were doing there. It is hard to conceive that you would enjoy a vacation anywhere, where there is not someone taking care of the grounds and property.

We take a great deal of pride in the home and gardens as this is Alden's legacy to his children and grandchildren.
We are proud to know that this home is clean, well furnished and provides all the amenities that we do, to make anyone's vacation memorable.

As for the mouse, thank you for letting us know. We let Catrina come in and she caught the mouse. Even some of the most expensive homes here have a mouse or two that manage to get in during the rainy season. Despite the mouse, we hope you found this home clean and well maintained.

The five star reviews that we have received thus far, are because of the pride, great care and attention to detail that we have in taking care of the home and property and the rapport that we have with our guests. Alden and I are both very people oriented and we did try to communicate with you and offer our services.

We do hope that you somehow managed to enjoy some aspect of your vacation here.

Again, please accept our sincerest apologies for your inconveniences.

WONDERFUL VACATION!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good about our vacation. We were there the last week in August and the weather was beautiful. The house was absolutely beautiful and the flower gardens were an added treat. Our two children along with two of their friends, ages 20 and 21, loved it. Everyday, 2 or 3 times a day, they would walk into town to either shop or eat or just hang out. The town is just a five minute walk and can best be described as a quaint little harbor town. Great restaurants and shops, loved it. My sons favorite place was The Red Cup. Overall we all liked McSeagulls and Ports of Italy. We also used the grill a couple of times to make swordfish and salmon and even went into town to buy lobster from the wharf. We all took a drive to Ocean Point which was just breath taking, the kids brought their lunch and had a picnic. Great quality family time. Every night we sat at the kitchen table and played different games, and one of the nights we had a camp fire. Can't forget the kayaks that are on the property everyone loved those. Great memories were made that we will never forget. Thank you Alden and Karen for sharing your beautiful house with us. Hopefully we will be able to return.

Absolutely fantastic!!!! The house, the gardens, the view, the town, everything was wonderful. The owners make your stay the best it can be. We were four adults, four children, and a dog and had plenty of space in this gem of a house. The yard was great for the kids to run around and play. Being right on the water was perfect for afternoon kayak rides. We hope to be back here soon!!

BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT, MEMORABLE.

  • 5 of 5
If anyone is looking to create memories of a fantastic vacation in a beautiful setting, then this is it. This house and it's owners are absolutely wonderful. The house itself is about a 5 minute walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor (which is good because parking is limited in town), and is located on a idealic Maine harbor, surrounded by one of the most beautiful flower gardens I have ever seen. The decore in the home is fun and eclectic, and kitchen and baths are stocked with whatever one might need. We had 7 people sleeping in the home quite comfortably. The owners also made special arrangements to have a twin bed put on the main floor for one of our guests with walking difficulties. Showering options are currently limited (1 shower on 2nd floor, 1 outdoor shower) but I understand the owners may be adding a 2nd indoor shower soon.
In addition to using this wonderful home for our vacation get away we also used it as the setting for our wedding. Not only were the owners happy to allow us to have the wedding in the back garden, but they also acted as our event planners, chefs and pubic notary!! They did a wonderful job too. We had a lobster boil one night and a full service sit-down dinner the following night. The owners had a outdoor tent, dancefloor, PA system and linens/china delivered, and flower arrangements made mostly from the flowers in their garden. It was all perfectly done and the harbor provided a stunning backdrop to the wedding.
Overall, I can't say enough nice things about this place. If you are planning a trip to Boothbay Harbor with family and/or friends and need a place that accomodates a large group of people, then I would definitely book it. Boothbay Harbor is a great town with lots to do, particularly eating and shopping. There is also kayaking (kayaks provided by owners), beautiful hikes along the shore, whale watching and puffin boat tours, and an amazing botanical garden to visit. The owners, who are present on the property, are thoughtful and friendly, informative and willing to do what ever it takes to make your stay the best it can be.
