Guestbook comments from the manager

It was a great walk down memory lane coming home to Damariscotta, although sad to hear of the passing of so many old friends. Enjoyed everything Maine again and especially our accomodations - truly home away from home. We look forward to another trip back again soon.

Perfect little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage nestled in the woods along the river was perfect for the two of us. Everything necessary was provided. Rebecca is wonderful! We will be back!

A place to leave it all behind.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place set back on a dirt road. Gracious owners lived just down the street. Excellent wi-fi speed. Whatever you need is there. Plenty to do in the area. Shops, restaurants, markets, etc. This is a place to get away to and enjoy the peace and quiet. Look forward to going back again.

A wonderful month!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was equipped with everything I needed and was clean and comfortable. Becky and Rick cold not have been more helpful and kind.. I was fortunate to have lovely weather to enjoy the outdoor area by the water, but did not take advantage of the canoe or kayaks which were available, It is situated on a private road in a quiet and peaceful.setting, a few minutes drive from the center of town and grocery shopping.. Altogether a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday.

The carriage house is in a nice and quiet neighborhood right on the river.

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were more than I expected. The bed was very comfortable and the quality of the dishes and cookware were very nice. We would stay here again. The oowners were more than accommodating.

Close to downtown area of Damariscotta yet very private and quiet. Beautiful view of the river. Richard and Rebecca were so nice even sharing fresh live lobster one evening. Yummy!! Will definitely be back

Charming seaside apartment

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I recently stayed at the apartment and it was absolutely perfect for a week away. We were greeted with a beautiful ocean breeze and fresh eggs in the fridge! The apartment itself is in the perfect location close to town and amenities but tucked away to maintain a tranquil setting. The apartment is well stocked with kitchen equipment, plates, glasses, etc. Anything you could possibly need to cook including a large lobster pot which we put to good use! There are beautiful views of the water as well as access to canoes and kayaks to explore.

What attracted us to this apartment (aside from the perfect location) was that Rebecca allowed dogs and we did not want to leave our sweet pup with a boarder. Not only was our pup allowed, but Rebecca left towels for her and Rick was always around with dog treats.

Our stay was great and I would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a peaceful escape in a quaint and friendly town.
