Sarah and I have three children who we are very proud of. We live in Maine year round. I rent Snowmobiles in the winter through our business Northeast Snowmobile Rentals. We have three locations, two in inland Maine, and one on New Hampshire. I enjoy running a marathon each year and Sarah tries to keep up with me. We have a Scottish Terrier.

Terry and Sarah MacGillivray purchased this house in 2011

We hope to retire to this water front home in 2020 when our youngest graduates from school. We have 15 years experience with weekly rentals. We own the Robinhood Inn on Bailey Island, which we have rented successfully for 15 years. We have learned what our guests want and do not want in a weekly rental. We often stay in other rentals when we travel around the US.

There are no steps from the parking lot to the king bedroom with private bath, thanks to a wooden ramp that connects to the wrap around porch. The home is 50 feet off the ocean. Nice yard with fire pit and room for the kids to run around. 24' new clean dock with kayaks.

18 person reunion, Tremendous!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The property was clean and well maintained. The houses have everything needed, plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans, even sharp knives. The photos are nice but even better in person.
The owners answered any questions right away and a pleasure to deal with. The kayaks got used at least once everyday. With the 2 houses we had a "quite" house and a "loud" house, it was perfect. We had a great time having our family reunion here this year and it was voted best one yet!!!

Enjoyed by all!

  • 5 of 5
This property is beautiful! 8 adults ranging in age 21 to 56 enjoyed this property and location.
The home is very spacious,modern and clean. The hammock and kayaks were a hit. Only thing missing is a fire pit for s'mores. (maybe not allowed) Neighborhood is very quiet.
We arrived an hour early and the property was ready. Terry greeted us and gave a tour of the house and explained how things work.

Terry was VERY helpful with great recommendations!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words! And so glad you all had a great time. We've been thinking about a fire pit for a while.....we're a big s'mores family too. Thanks for the suggestion! Hope to see you all again next summer.

THE FIRE PIT IS HERE! Please bring your own wood.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We traveled from California, Florida, Louisiana and Massachussetts for this family gathering. Very relaxing--best view in Harpswell! Wished we could have stayed longer than a week!

Perfect setting for a family reunion. We rented the main house and both apartments. Very family friendly, great big lawn for kids to play. Dock was awesome. In addition to the kayaks provided, we brought 2 of our own. The kids really enjoyed kayaking to the "little island" at low tide. We were during the lobster was really cheap! $3.99 a pound cooked and cleaned--can't beat that. One day we kayaked around and ordered 20-something pounds of lobster while sitting in the kayak for pick-up later that day--what a great memory.

House was ideally set-up for a large group. Although we had the apartments, all cooking and dining happened in the main house, which worked out just fine. Plenty of room for all!!

Harpswell is very quiet community, but very charming. We drove out to Popham Beach (about 25 minutes away) several times--well worth it! Lots of sand and really cool tides. Kids and adults loved it. Camden, Maine (about 90 minutes) was also worth the drive. The men also did a lot of golfing in the surrounding areas.

Hope to visit again one day.

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5
We rented the main house and the 2 apartments for our stay. We had a mini-family reuinion and it was the perfect place for us. The views and home are wonderful and fully stocked. The place was completely stocked with plenty of towels and sheets for all beds. Terry was very easy to deal with and someday we may go back. I would reccomend this as a great rental. Even the views from apartments were fabulous.

We are located on an island in Harpswell, Maine, connected to the mainland by bridge. The closest town in Brunswick. The entire area is beautiful, but the fact that the home is right on the water is a plus! Having a dock is another added bonus. Bring your own boat, or just borrow our small row boat and kayaks and explore the wonderful coves in the area. There is a nesting pair of bald eagles on a nearby island that love doing shows for us while we are out paddling, I'm sure you won't miss them. In addition to boat, there are wonderful nature hikes that would be suitable for the whole family. Restaurants and shopping may be found in Brunswick, Bath and Freeport...the closest of the towns, but a day spent explore the other towns that line Route 1 is another must! Then come back, pick up some lobster caught fresh that day and steam them in the lobster cooker on the deck and watch the boats coming in! Its what we do in Maine.....The way life should be!
