Paradise in Maine!
Edges was the perfect retreat and Sherry/David could not have been better hosts. Their home was immaculate and well-appointed. The setting is lovely-- gorgeous water views, peaceful, filled with interesting wild life, and just a short drive to the charming town of Rockland. Rackliff Island is a hidden gem, connected by a beautiful causeway (we would pause every time we passed through just to soak up the scenery). The rooms in the house are delightful-- there is a comfortable great room, fantastic deck, a screened in porch, and views from every window. The bedrooms were lovely and there is a wealth of comfortable seating perfect for reading throughout the house and on the decks. We traveled with our two sons (both young adults) and there was plenty of room for all.
Rockland has fantastic restaurants-- we particularly enjoyed Ada's Kitchen and In Good Company -- both with interesting menus, wine lists and farm-to-table choices. Rented kayaks from Ducktrap, a wonderful husband-wife team who will deliver to the house.
We feel so fortunate that we discovered Edges. A special place in a wonderful setting!
Wonderful family getaway! Peaceful and rejuvenating!
The EDGES is a magical place. Sherry was very pleasant to speak with and her home was absolutely a secluded retreat. The home is very rustic on the outside and blends in very nicely with the thick wooded landscape. Although there were neighbors, we could not see them through the woods and we never heard them. The interior was a comfortable, well appointed, very clean, cabin-like home which we found very relaxing. With private access to the entire west side of the wooded cove, our two boys, ages 12 and 13 were in heaven. They actually made a sail raft from wood and other items that had washed up on the shore, and then actually sailed it the entire length of the cove.
Amazing trip! It was our first time to Maine. We would definitely go back and stay at the Edges again.
A piece of heaven in Maine!
Edges is a great place for a quiet get away and enjoying the beauty of nature. It is also quite easy to get to many other attractions nearby including museums, ferry trips to island, good restaurants, fresh lobster very close.
This is our fourth year renting this property which says it all! The owners have been wonderful to work with and are responsive to any questions. We consider it a privilege to spend time here. Thanks!
Quiet, private and serenely pretty !
My husband and I have stayed at many HomeAway properties and this one is now at the top of our favorites list. If you are looking for both privacy and a quiet place right on the water, you will not be disappointed here at The Edges. The house is lovely, comfortable and has a great layout. A huge picture window dominates the main living area and it provides both a gorgeous view of the cove and lots of natural light (which we crave.) A huge deck with plenty of seating runs the length of the back of the house. It is delightful for reading, eating, snoozing or just watching the tide come in. There's even a screened-in porch right off the master bedroom. The furniture throughout is comfy with plenty of throw pillows and the owner assured me there were enough of them to take onto the deck for comfy Adirondack-chair sitting. She was right ! We loved that the main level had a huge master suite so we didn't even need to go upstairs the whole week. Yet upstairs does have two more bedrooms and a study, so there's plenty of space for a family or several couples. The house does have wi-fi and a well-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances. The property is deceptively large- there's a short walking path right on the property which is delightful to discover. It meanders through the pines down the length of the cove and leads to either another gorgeous sitting spot at a little cabin (take your morning coffee there) or further down to "the point". What a treat! Venture out onto the rocks to daydream, watch the ospreys, or enjoy a beautiful sunset. There will be no one else around. The moments of bliss are endless. There is so much to do in the area -Rockland and Camden are quintessential harbor towns with so much ambiance. Or stay on the island where this house is located and just unwind. The decision each day to either stay at the house or go out to explore is a hard one to make, but a nice one to have. A few of our favorites: dinner at Miranda's Cafe in Rockland, homemade pie & ice cream at Waterman's Beach Lobster Shack (5 min. away), and a hike for the magnificent view atop one of the peaks in Camden Hills State Park. Don't hesitate to contact the owners and ask questions. They could not be more friendly and accommodating. They really do care that you have a perfect stay at their home. We certainly did.
Most relaxing vacation ever!
Myself, my husband, and my inlaws spent a wonderful week at Edges. The grounds are lush and beautiful and we had a great time exploring the water's edge path to the point. We slept with the windows open to take advantage of the breeze and the sounds of the water. I enjoyed using the screened porch off of the master bedroom for my reading time, but my favorite thing to do was taking my coffee down the path to the little cabin's porch every morning. What a beautiful view! Our days were split between spending time at Edges and exploring nearby Camden and Rockland. We also visited the transportation museum that is only a few minutes drive from Edges. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation and so did my inlaws. They mentioned that they have spoken of the trip every day since our return. Also, the owners are the best!
