This place is the best!!!! We spent a week at the Sullivan home in Eastport and made a bucketful of memories. The “we” consisted of two people in their seventies, one at fifty and two eleven year old twins. The place had everything for everybody!...My husband is in a wheel chair and the configuration of the home and the deck gave him the maximum freedom given the circumstances. The pictures you see are accurate; maybe there should be one showing the many books and games and media choices. The kitchen, too, has everything one could possibly want. We cooked our lobster from the Eastport pound and savored blueberry pancakes, blueberries from the adjoining fields, to describe some of the food fun. And Eastport is a charming small community away from the madness of many of the coastal towns and cities. Host Danny Sullivan was great, had all the answers, and was prompt in his responses to our repeated inquiries. I would love to go back; it was one of the best vacations ever. The Sullivan house is a special place!!!
The house was as described. It was very spacious and the view was fantastic. We met the owners and they were great people, filled us in on the local history. The house is not far from downtown so we found ourselves walking to town. At night we visited some of the restaurants and found the local people to be very welcoming and willing to share their knowledge of the area. There is a local IGA and the prices were compatible to home. We would definitely rent this house again.
We had a wonderful family visit and enjoyed the scenery and beautiful sunsets.
Sometimes we went out for dinner and sometimes we cooked at home.
The house certainly had all the conveniences for whatever you needed.
We saw the deer come right up to the house and they weren't afraid of us. Lovely time had by all. Thank you Danny and John.
We stayed at "the Sullivan House" for eight days..it was wonderful in every way. It was just my husband and I and we felt like we were in the home of good friends. The owners were readily available if we needed anything and extremely friendly and helpful. We felt so comfortable in Eastport. Anything we needed or would have enjoyed was right there. It was private and quiet but the spectacular views made the vacation. The master nedroom and the living spaces plus decks face the most beautiful constantly changing scenery. We sat on the deck the last night eating lobster (yes , there was a lobster pot to use)and watched Minke whales feed. We saw incredible tide changes and had an adventure a day. We did get to go to Campabello in Canada with copies of our passports but would have felt more relaxed if we had our actual passports. Next time. We would love to go back. The week was a highlight of our month in Maine. Thank you to the Sullivans.
This property was everything claimed and more! The views, one just can't get enough of, from deer feeding right next to you, to watching lobster boats hauling ( Danny even provided binoculars for easy viewing). The house is very quiet and peaceful, a great place to unwind. The Sullivan family was more than wonderful, they were friends. My family went for the July 4th activities and what a blast. There was something for everyone! The people of Eastport really love their town and they love their visitors as well. I recommend this house and town to all. We had lobster the last night from Quoddy Bay Pound, great prices and service. We are looking forward to returning to the Pirate Festival.
Let me start this review by explaining that I am familiar with Eastport and a good portion of the surrounding area. I had family there when I was young (grandparents, who since have passed away).
Having seen many seasons on the island, I must say, WOW - you can not beat the view that this place has! Truly, I would almost challenge anyone to show me a better vacation view in EASTPORT! The sun rises and sunsets are both viewable from the back deck(s) and the view of Old Sow from the top deck is awesome! When you are inside, it seems that nearly the entire side of the house is glass, so when inclement weather has you stuck inside, you still have an amazing view!
Upon arrival at the house, Danny's brother, John, happily met us and ensured that we were able to get into the house, and that all was well. That was such a treat! Not soon after, Danny came and ensured everything was all set. As we were reminiscing about summers with my Grandparents, Danny most willingly shared a few family stories of his own!
The house was plenty spacious for us (2 people, my wife and I) and would have plenty of room for a small family. As we were the first of the season to stay in the house, there were a few little things that were either not working, or we couldn't figure out, but Danny was quick to help out with those, making them very inconsequential to our vacation, and most were fixed quickly by Danny!
What a great way to spend our Anniversary trip! Danny and John were extremely hospitable, and great hosts, there is no such thing as an outsider in Eastport, and the Seafood is about as fresh as you can get!
Next time you are planning a stay Down East, no one should hesitate to reserve their time at this, the Sullivan House, where your visit will be "The Way Life Should Be"
We cousins who convened in Eastport at this wonderful property, could not have been happier with the home, how it was outfitted and how well our Sullivan hosts treated us so nicely! My only reservation in giving an excellent review/recommendation on this vacation rental is that it might become too popular to get a week we might want in the future! The views were incredible.... Thank you, Danny and John!
