Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a wonderful home you have here. We couldn't get enough of the view,couldn't get enough lobsters, steamers, oysters, fried clams, lobster stew and fresh fish.

Having grown up on the Rhode Island shores, and my wife on the North Shore of Boston, this spot was just perfect. We both missed the sights, sounds, and smells of the seashore."

Beautiful and serene!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is really a 5 stars plus. The home is beautifully situated with panoramic views of a working harbor in Penobscot Bay and is very private. The house has clearly been loved and is newly updated with tasteful and comfortable furnishings, beautiful art work and a well equipped kitchen. We also so appreciated the pet friendly and elder accessible aspects of the house. The owner is a very gracious host and we hope to return.

This property is a treasure. The home is Up on a hill and is secluded from the homes nearby. The views are amazing!! It is such a relaxing retreat. Our family has stayed at this property twice.

Happy Renter

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented this home. It was our second stay and it was just as wonderful as we remembered it to be! As other reviewers mentioned, the views are glorious. The house and yard are well maintained, very functional and very pretty. Last year, we had our adult children with us, as well as their significant others. There was plenty of room for all of us, especially with the addition of the bright and cheerful studio apartment that is located just steps away from the house. The house has an open design, which makes it feel extremely roomy. Great breezes off the water, too! This year it was just the two of us. A bit more quiet, but nonetheless, perfect.

We were fortunate to have really nice weather both years, with very little rain. There are so many things to do in the area, e.g., eateries, museums, theaters, that rain isn't a real spoiler.

The large outdoor lobster steamer is a great feature and it is very simple to use. There is a little lobster store about a mile down the road, where fresh lobsters (right out of the water) are priced very low, especially if you buy them uncooked!!

The homeowner, Jerry, is pleasant, responsive and well organized, making the logistics of renting this house a breeze. We have rented many houses over the years through VRBO, as well as other sources, but this place beats them all. We hope to go back again next summer. We love it! Thanks Jerry for making our stay so comfortable!

A very satisfied renter

  • 5 of 5

This location is absolutely stunning. The view from 3 sides of the home is a breathtaking view of the sea! One gets to watch the lobster boats leave and come in daily. One gets to see the fog roll in and the sun shine giving reflections of the boats on the ocean. The accommodations are excellent. Everything is available for cooking and enjoying. All items are easily found and the home makes you feel as if you are home. It is spacious and comfy and efficient. You can't ask for anything more. Jerry is a really nice person who is concerned that you have a great vacation! We had an amazing stay at this location for all ages from 4 up to 65. Thank you Jerry for having such a comfortable home for us on our vacation.

Exceptional View property! Our best Maine vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best Maine vacation ever! From the moment that we arrived, we were greeted by Jerry, our Host. We were both in awe of the magnificent view as Jerry gave us a tour of the property and house. He had prepared a detailed booklet, with instructions on using all the appliances, stereo, t.v., computer hookup and suggestions for places to eat, buy seafood, places to visit. This was very helpful! Jerry was also helpful in answering any questions we had during our stay, by phone.

The house was very clean, bright, spacious, comfortable and very private. The kitchen and bathrooms were fully stocked with the necessary items one would need.There was a nice variety of CD's to listen to for the stereo and books to read.The dining area was also spacious and had a wonderful view of the water and islands, pine trees. The furniture was very comfortable!

We enjoyed sunning, reading, and eating on one of the 2 decks. We enjoyed taking short day trips, but spent lots of time enjoying the house and mesmerizing view. We enjoyed watching the sail boats, lobster boats in the harbor and sea gulls flying by our windows. It was fun to cook lobsters in the special gas fired lobster cooker on the back deck.We were able to purchase the freshest seafood a couple miles away. There was a nice park nearby with a beach & lots of picnic tables and many places to walk.

This was a great location, because it was close to so many interesting places to visit. We enjoyed this vacation rental so much that we have already booked it for a month next year, so that our Children and Grandchildren can have the experience. This was a real find! We would recommend it to our family, friends or anyone who would enjoy a beautiful vacation in Maine with a VIEW!!!
