The Perfect Maine getaway!
Wow! I can't say enough about how much my family and I enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse! We stayed at this beautiful house in Lamoine for 9 days, and enjoyed every minute!
The home is very clean and comfortable! The heat works great on cold nights- we found ourselves shutting it off sometimes! The house was plenty big for my wife and I and our 8 children, and we found the layout to be very practical. There are 2 bedrooms downstairs where my wife and I and the baby slept, and a full bath off the dining room, very close to the master BR.
Upstairs are 2 bedrooms joined by a Jack and Jill bathroom, and one of the bedrooms has its own full bath in addition. We took an air mattress with us and had 4 girls sleeping in one bedroom, and 3 boys in the other. There was plenty of room and the kids loved it. Also very practical were 2 separate staircases leading back downstairs - one from each bedroom. The house had an old classic feel, but was fully updated with washer/dryer, dishwasher, flat screen LCD TV and anything else you would want. We were very happy with the good wireless internet speeds (20 MB down!) as we're used used to fast internet and are a little spoiled in that regard. We had great cell reception everywhere we went in the area. The house also has a small mud room inside the front door,and when our kids got really dirty and wet, we had them come in an unfinished barn/shed entrance that's connected to the kitchen to take off their dirty stuff. Very conveniently, this entrance is right next to the washer/dryer!
The area is so nice it made us want to move there! A beautiful little beach off the bay is a 5 minute drive from the house, and Acadia National park and all it has to see is less than 30 minutes away. Bangor was only an hour away, and the city of Ellsworth, with supermarkets, Fast food, a pharmacy, a hospital, and anything else is just 10 minutes from the house! It rained 7 out of the 9 days we were there, but we still found plenty to do.
One of the best parts was dealing with the owner Ray. He and his wife were such warm and wonderful people, we felt like we had been friends with them for years. Ray answered all of my any emails quickly and addressed all of my concerns. I felt there was nothing left undone, and had confidence he would've addressed any problems that may have come up (though none did).
Everything about our stay was positive- the home, the area, the owner- I give it my highest recommendation!!!
