Secluded Maine getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! The pictures and description of the house were as advertised, maybe better. The owners met us upon arrival to ensure we had everything we needed. They were excellent to deal with at every step of the rental process including the prompt return of our security & pet deposit.
We brought our miniature schnauzer with no issues. She was able to use the fenced in yard allowing us to not have to put her on a leash every time she needed to go out.
Our three children, ages 11-16, loved hanging out, climbing on the rocky coast in the back yard and playing board games left by the owners. The television has a satellite connection and was perfect when we wanted to use it. The WiFi was adequate for our needs, but if someone wanted fast connection speeds they may be disappointed.
This home is truly secluded which we thoroughly enjoyed, but make no mistake, it is secluded. The nearest store of any kind is 15 minutes away by car. The owners directed us to the nearest fishing dock (10 min drive) where we went on two separate occasions to buy lobster and clams. The house is very well equipped for all of your cooking needs. The washer and drying worked well allowing us to catch up on laundry during our long road trip. The deck overlooks the water and is a perfect place to do nothing. The home, both inside and out, has lots of places to sit down with others or by yourself. Doors and windows all have screens allowing a wonderful breeze to move through the house.
Acadia National Park is about 1 ½ hours away and worth the drive. Plan to spend a full day if you decide to make the trip.
We did not use the two apartments on the property but they are right next to the main house and would be perfect for a larger gathering.

A Perfect Week!

  • 5 of 5
We were hoping for a beautiful, quiet, secluded spot to recharge our spirits after a challenging spring. We had visions of wooded hiking trails, flaming sunsets framed by towering pines, skies full of countless stars. We found all of those things. The house is perfectly situated and the huge porch offers breathtaking views of the ocean by day and the stars by night.

The flowers were the first signs that West Wind would exceed our expectations. They were everywhere: carefully tended window boxes, garden patches, planters on the deck.

Rental properties are usually okay. Just okay. The furnishings are frequently without character and utilitarian at best. This is most definitely NOT the case in this beautiful home. These fine ladies invited us into their home where every room was full of warmth and character. The furniture, bedspreads, rugs were all items gathered over a lifetime and lovingly assembled. We felt immediately at home. It is a vacation we will not forget.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for the quiet and peaceful place and we found one. The house, the front and back yard were gorgeous and even much more attractive than pictures. Walking and biking around the sound Addison were enjoyable, safe and without trafic and now we are now in such athletic shapes. The cream of the crop of our vacation was going to the lobsterman village and buying lobsters. I brought a lobster pot, as Diane suggested, and it was my the most fashion shopping bag ever. I loved our evenings with dinner we cooked and we had all appliances and staff we needed for it. The most favorite part was my relaxation time near the fireplace in the evening with a book or a great movie. Thank you Jill and Diane for such a great vacation.

Charming House with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at the house and had an amazing time. We highly recommend it. The view from the house is spectacular. Jill & Dee were extremely helpful and very patient with all of our pre-trip questions. The house is kept very clean and has everything you need for a relaxing & fun stay. The photos in the ad are very accurate & do not do the view justice. Our favorite activies included: getting fresh lobster daily from Bob "the lobster guy", exploring Acadia Park, watching the waves on the schoodic peninsula, Campobello Island (be sure to tour the light house and watch the tide go in & out, and taking a Puffin Cruise. There are no drawbacks to this house or location but a few things I would be aware of: 1) There are not many great restaurants around South Addison so be prepared to cook most of your meals. We wanted to grill & cook lobster so that was not an issue for us. The kitchen at the house is well equipt to cook any meal. 2) Bring your bug spray - it is heavily wooded around the house so the mosquitos come out in force at dusk. This would be no different at any other property in the area. 3) The wifi internet at the house is satellite based so it has a very slow speed and very limited amount of upload/download capacity before it shuts off. It is ok for light web browsing or reading the New York Times online every day. It is not robust enough for someone to keep up with their work email or stream any video while at the house. Overall we had a spectacular time and hope to go back again.

Paradise in Down East Maine

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th time visiting So. Addison Maine, and our 2nd time visiting Cape Split. We loved this property. The owners are great, and one of them greeted us upon arrival, which was very helpful. The home is well maintained, the water views are breath taking! One word for this home Paradise! Our dogs had a fenced in yard, the view from the bedroom upstairs was beautiful. It was private, really a slice of heaven!

Privacy Plus

  • 5 of 5
This property was better than shown in the pictures. The smell of the firs blended with the ocean was wonderful. Our party used all three spaces and found them clean and comfortable. This is definitely a home away from home so we made ourselves at home. We found everything we could possibly need including some extras which were very nice. We attended the Machias Blueberry Festival which was fun. We visited the amazing Jasper Beach which is one of two lapidaries in the world. There was an island tour with a lobsterman which educated us all about that occupation. We spent most of the time relaxing on the decks or looking for seaglass on the various nearby beaches. I am an artist and though I usually do not paint landscapes, the view was so incredible I've brought it home with me in a painting that I worked on the entire week. We did not bring our dog, but he would have been safe in the yard. It was so easy to cook rather than eat out, we only had a couple of lunches. If you're willing to drive a a bit, you can be the first in the US to see the sunrise. The weather was perfect during our stay. We finished a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle and never bothered to turn on the TV. The only problem, or blessing, depends on how you view it, was the WIFI worked just fine but the internet was difficult to access after 8 and the morning on weekdays. Then there was the lobster, fresh from the boat at a neighbors. It's one of the easiest meals to prepare so we had that several nights, bought extra for lobster rolls for lunch the next day, came up with a delicious recipe without mayo. I would recommend it for an extended family get together or a group of couples. If privacy, nature, ocean and relaxation on your vacation is your goal, this is the perfect place. Jill and Dee were quick to answer any questions.

Our group traveled from western New York, Vermont and Maine. It was worth the drive. I would love to return every year if I could.
