Relaxing with great views!

  • 5 of 5

Been renting here for a few years in September. The front room with all glass on three sides makes for magnificent views of lobster-men plying their trade and seals relaxing. We've had porpoise swimming by on more than one occasion. A great place to kick back, relax and enjoy the view.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We go here for two weeks each summer, and you won't find a lovelier spot on the coast of Maine for a better price. The photographs don't do the view justice. The large front room is glass on three sides and has comfortable furniture; we eat all our meals there. It is sunny and warm, with screen doors on either side to let in the breeze. All manner of boats and birds go by, and seals are a frequent siting. There's a small deck too if you want to sit outdoors. The house is well stocked with books and games for rainy days and the area has lots of fun places to explore just a short drive away. The community is small, with narrow roads so the traffic is minimal and slow; great for walking. There is no dishwasher or washing machine, but that doesn't bother us. If you are looking for an upscale community and a house with lots of amenities, look somewhere else, but if you want to relax and feed your soul, there's no better spot.
