Cozy, spacious, private with a lovely ocean view

  • 5 of 5

The apartment sits above all the other units so it’s very private. The view was really nice and there is a small balcony off the kitchen that allows good star gazing. The rooms and bath were well equipped and clean. The unit is quite spacious and very comfortable for a family of 4. The hosts were wonderful and super responsive. Breakfast was a lovely treat for each of our 3 days. Only downside is that you are right off the main road and there is noise from cars and lights. All the other places have that same issue. Highly recommend.

My sister and I stayed in the 2nd floor apartment above the office. We would have been happy to stay for another couple of weeks. The organic continental breakfasts were excellent and the owners were considerate and genuinely interested in our needs. We look forward to another visit next year.

Great location, pretty views

  • 5 of 5

Jenny was very nice and gave some great recommendations for things to do and places to go. Property was excellently maintained and quiet. Bed was little hard for our taste but to each their own in that regard. Location was perfect and the view of the bay was amazing. Apartment was very clean and spacious. One tv in the living room only so if you are someone who likes a tv in the bedroom, then that could be a downfall but overall it was a fantastic stay.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Jenny and Eric;s top floor apartment for one week in August 2017. We found the apartment to be spacious and clean and with a beautiful view of the bay. Jenny was a wonderful host, always willing to offer suggestions of where to go and what to do, and her morning scones were absolutely delicious. If we are ever returning to the area I would without a doubt stay at this place again. We had a great experience and I would highly recommend Jenny and Erics lovely apartment to anybody.

Apartment was pristine. Clean, comfortable and a relaxing space. Jennie & Eric were attentive hosts.

  • 4 of 5

We visited the Camden, Lincolnville, Belfast area for a few days and the apartment at Birchwood was a perfect spot. We enjoyed some hiking, a tour at the Cellardoor winery, shopping and dining at a few newer restaurants that were delicious.
