Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 4 nights at this home, and the pictures don't do it justice. The property is incredibly beautiful and private, with a nice canopy of trees that keeps it cool without obstructing the views. The home was clean and comfortable, and kitchen well stocked. The wildlife was incredible, as we were greeted by a fox outside the kitchen window upon arrival, and a deer one morning in the front lawn. The dock was perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee, reading a book, and launching a swim in the bay. We enjoyed meals on the deck, and a nightly fire pit to roast marshmallows. We also had fun hiking/running in nearby Wolfe's Neck State Park, lounging, and taking trips into Freeport. Jackie was terrific to work with, providing lots of helpful information before our arrival. We highly recommend this rental, and hope to get back sometime soon ourselves.

Super Short Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to relax and get away from all the modern day schedules. We roughed it for 4 days/3 nights and could not ask for better. Three guys from the hectic ways of the Hartford, Ct area.

Away from it all and still close enough to civilization for whatever you need. Jim DeGrandpre is an excellent host and answered our questions with a wealth of knowledge. Try the local beef on the grill with a side of lobster. Surf and turf at its homemade best!

This is a vacation spot away from it all. Sit back on the deck and watch the lobster boats pull their pots directly in front of you.

Hope to return again Jim if you will have us. Will have to bring the wives next time. Such a nice place that they will also wish for a longer stay.

Family of Ages One to 95 Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house during June 2009 for our extended family that ranged from a 1-1/2 year old to a 95 year old great grandmother. In spite of perhaps the rainiest week of the year, we had a wonderful time. We visited a state park beach on the sunny day, the local Craft Fair just up the road one day, L.L. Bean on the monsoon day, and watched our young grandson throw rocks picked up on the beach back into the water every day. Early risers of our group got to see deer in the yard, and briefly, one morning, a fox. This house was a convenient and very comfortable gathering place for us as we arrived from our North Carolina, Arizona and Ireland homes and relaxed together for a week. The kitchen was well equipped and made preparing the lobster feast we enjoyed, along with other meals, easy. The only negative we could mention about the house is no first floor bedroom for elderly guests use. But, for us, that was just like home; we must help grandmother up the stairs when she stays at our house, also.

Great Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in May. The house was situated in a very private area. The house was clean and well equipped, grilling with views of the bay was especially nice. We enjoyed the wonderful views of the bay and the abundant wildlife including an Osprey nest with chicks we could see from the deck. We went for a walk in the state park about 1/2 mile up the road and were able to take a Kayaking class from LL Bean that explored the surrounding waters. It was a great weekend.
