My husband and I waited a long time to rent this home - everytime we were available, it wasn't. But this year we lucked out- celebrated our 40th anniversary here and it was well worth the wait! The home is beautiful and extremely comfortable and very clean - and our hosts were wonderful. Shelly made us - and especially me - feel like we were old friends. And of course, Rudy - their beloved Golden Retriever - made being away from our dog easier. Unfortunately our weather didn't cooperate the way we had hoped it would - on arrival, it was very hot and humid, making it almost impossible to relax on the patio and a few days later we had rain - lots of rain, and fog and the temps bottomed out. But we were able to get out and explore neighboring towns, Acadia National Park and even visited Campobello, the summer home of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. It was great having such a wonderful base to come back to in the evening. If we ever get the chance to visit Maine again - we would definitely stay at Ebb Tide. Shelly and Larry, thank you for letting us stay in your home away from home.
