Spectacular Silver Anniversary Getaway in October

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful cottage on gorgeous Orr's Island was the perfect location for our getaway to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.  It was a week in "paradise"!!
 
Everything that we experienced from the time we pulled into the drive, until our departure, was WONDERFUL!  The cottage is lovely and full of charm.   It is more than adequate with all of the amenities that Damian provides.  We really felt at home.   

With the kitchen's open design, you are still a part of what is going on in the main living area, which is so nice.  We enjoyed the comfortable living room, fireplace, and large flat screen TV - very cozy.    

The view is breathtaking from the house, the deck, the yard, and the rocky shoreline.    The shore is an excellent spot to cast for Striper and Rock Bass. 

Damian was a pleasure to work with in planning our trip to the cottage.  And we found his tip sheet to be the perfect key to unlocking all of the treasures of the area.  We really enjoyed The Giant Steps, Reid State Park, Popham Beach, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, plus great shopping and site seeing north in Brunswick, Bath, Boothbay, Wiscasset, Newcastle, Rockland and Camden.   

Since you are searching for a rental, our recommendation is this: stop looking because you have found paradise in Maine!

A Perfect Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is an ideal place for a family vacation. The setting is beautiful, there's space for everyone to spread out, and the house is perfectly equipped.

We arrived in July, 2012 with a party of seven that included my retired parents and my two-year-old daughter.

While the weather in most of New England very hot and humid, the weather on the island was very comfortable and breezy. The setting is very beautiful: you drive into the island over several small bridges past views of the water.

The house is just as it appears in the pictures. We loved the deck, which spans the full width of the ocean-side of the house. There are several large tables and a seating area on the deck, and we ate dinner there every evening. My daughter enjoyed playing on the lawn behind the house. The Adirondack chairs facing the water are an especially beautiful place to sit. The whole neighborhood is very serene.

There are places to head in the morning or evening within easy walking distance: a cafe at the cribstone bridge to the south, and an ice cream shop to the north. There are a number of places to eat within a very short drive. For food and supplies, there are several convenience stores within a short drive and a very large Shaw's grocery store around 20 minutes away.

It was an ideal vacation spot that we only reluctantly left. I can't imagine that anyone would be disappointed with this vacation rental.
