We have rented the Clifford house for 3 separate weeks over the last decade or so and each visit we had a wonderful time. On our first visit we had our wedding there, with a big canopy out on the huge lawn, live music, and a lobster bake! Our other two visits have been purely for vacation.

The house has so many bedrooms and bathrooms that we can always bring along friends and family, and it's big enough that everyone can relax with plenty of room to do their own thing. There are 2 wings to the house each with its own kitchen and living area, and a huge screened-in porch with a sitting area and also a big picnic table overlooking the beautiful yard and cove view. The porch is great for hanging out, enjoying the breeze, having a big dinner with family, friends, etc.

The house is in a very quiet location and very private. The owners are very friendly and accommodating but also leave you be. They usually stroll by on your first or second day there to introduce themselves and make sure everything is OK, but other than that they will give you as much privacy as you want. It never feels like you're being watched (which is different than some other rentals I have experienced.)

Down the path through the giant field of wild flowers there's a dock with kayaks and bracing Maine water for anyone brave enough to swim. In late July and August phosphorescent algae cause the night water to sparkle and glow when you run your hand (or a paddle) through it. The air is cool and the sunlight is amazingly clear even at the height of summer, when the rest of the country is baking in heat and humidity. It's a wonderful place.

We had a wonderful time here. The weather was nice and we played the piano a lot. One night we went on a boat ride. It was so much fun. We had a lot of burgers and dogs. Hope to come next year.
