Beautiful area of Maine

  • 5 of 5

All the peace and quiet you could ever ask for in this lovely location. Shirley & Roger are gracious hosts who obviously take pride in providing such a great accommodation. Nice hiking trails nearby maintained by the town, and about 40 minutes from the awesome Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Oh, and if you're a seafood'll be in heaven here.

Great Place to relax and central for exploring

  • 5 of 5

We came from Scotland to the US to visit relatives in NH. We had a few days at Waterfront House. It was clean comfortable and exactly as it is described on the internet. The WiFi was patchy but found it worked fine on the balcony but there was no time for TV or internet as the place is teaming with wildlife. We saw Ospreys and all kinds of waterfowl. Shirley the owner was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra day.

Perfect View and Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in September 2013 as it was lobster season and still quiet hot back in Texas. The pictures understate the view of the river. It was very peaceful watching the tides and the waterfowl. The bedroom is located on the lower floor along with the washer/drier and outside patio. The gas grill is perfect for finishing off lobster and grilling veggies. This rental is very clean and nicely furnished. Although this is great for a couple, it has a sofa sleeper that could accommodate a child. There is also a 2BR rental on the property that can be rented along with the waterfront house, but not separately. The WiFi did not work, but this was not a problem. Fresh lobster is nearby. This is a really a quiet neighborhood and is perfect for a romantic getaway. Roger and Shirley are gracious hosts and we would not hesitate to stay here again. Larry & Kelly, Georgetown, Texas.

Wonderful place for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic home for two adults --- it was exactly as billed with a small but furnished kitchen, grill, living space and bedroom with amazing light, porch, and dock right on the river. Particularly wonderful was its location --- you could have lounged in the house all weekend and been quite comfortable just enjoying being away from it all. We chose to make it both a place for movies and reading AND use it as a home base for adventures to Brunswick, Bath, Lewiston and Popham Beach State Park. There is a country store about 10-15 minutes down the road and grocery store, Starbucks, movie theater, etc. about 20-25 minutes in case you have a rainy day or are looking to venture more into town. We couldn't get a wifi signal in the house, which wasn't a problem for us (perhaps a blessing?), but others may want to check with the owners if that is a priority. The only thing I would recommend is if you like to paddle, bring your own kayak or canoe or rent for the weekend. We were able to rent nearby and paddle for a couple hours but the option to paddle from right out your back door should not be missed!

Wonderful, Private Vacation Home on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful vacation home--very clean and very well appointed, with all the comforts of home and lovely views. The owners are extremely gracious and helpful and are close by if you need anything. The house is located in a private, very quiet neighborhood and it’s right on the water. Great for relaxing, kayaking, canoeing, and birdwatching, with plenty of hiking trails nearby. Convenient to restaurants and shopping and scenic, quaint villages. We really loved that you can watch the tides come and go from the comfort of the living room or from the deck. We would absolutely love to stay there again.

Great for R&R!

  • 4 of 5

What luck that we found this hidden gem in the last days before July 4th weekend! It was such a luxury to wake up and see the water each morning.... the property was private and the waterfront was all ours! We would spend all day on the deck - sunning, napping, eating, relaxing!

The owners are a lovely couple and make sure to check in and see if things are ok!

Our only wish was for the wifi to reach inside the house... because one night my husband HAD to use the internet and mosquitos are the worst companions! :D

Thank you Shirley and Roger for sharing this little piece of paradise!
