Nothing negative to say it was perfect!
The home was spectacular!!!! It exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't do it justice and the owner was wonderful to work with
I rented this property for a quiet early fall getaway with my parents and sister, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot. The house and grounds are beautiful, and we felt right at home for the week. The living areas in the home are very comfortable, and we loved cooking together in the gorgeous kitchen, and eating in the dining area overlooking the gorgeous water view. We were even treated to several visits from the resident eagle, who seemed to like to wait and show off when he knew we were a rapt audience at the dining room table or outside on the deck. :) We were lucky to have a very warm, beautiful late Fall week, and took the canoe exploring all over the place in the bay, especially out to the little islands; it was a blast. The house is well-stocked with everything you would need, and sight-seeing, hiking and shopping are all very close by. What I loved the best was the absolute silence at night. With the window cracked all you could hear was what my sister and I termed the "Duck Party", with large groups of ducks quacking it up far out on the water; it was fantastic. Of course, it was completely silent in the morning, so we called that the "Duck Hangover". Loved this place... we will be back! :)
Fabulous Waterside Vacation in Maine
Our extended family had an absolutely wonderful week in Maine. The house and the cottage were tastefully decorated, well furnished, well stocked and in beautiful condition. Everyone enjoyed the the kayaks, paddle-board, rafts and lawn games. The views from the house, the deck and patio were all stunning. We have rented vacation homes dozens of times and have never had such an immaculately clean, well-stocked place. And we've never encountered a more conscientious and helpful owner. Ariane seemed to have thought of everything!
Ariane, my family had a wonderful time at your property. We decided that your house was the best furnished we had been to, and that includes nice properties in Park City and Winter Park. We so enjoyed our time at your property and hope circumstances allow us to seek a return reservation soon.
Easter Weekend 2016
For an extended Easter weekend, our family enjoyed being a guest at this coastal home. From the minute we inquired about the property, the Owners were responsive and extremely informative. Our questions were immediately answered, our reservations confirmed, and we anxiously awaited the day we could arrive! We were guests at this property with our young adult son, our brother and sister-in-law, and my husband's parents. The setting was perfect for the seven adults in our party, and everyone had a private and comfortable bedroom area. The view of the water will greet you as soon as you walk in, where you will admire it from EVERY room, and all the views were equally as good. The kitchen was the scene of a memory making dinner that all of our family members participated in creating, and became the favorite part of our stay. We only had one sunny day during our time as a guest here, but it provided a spectacular sunset that we stopped to admire on the patio, even if only for a brief moment. We also walked on the beach looking for sea glass. As a guest, you will discover for yourself that this home was professionally designed, and constructed with quality and care that you will appreciate and respect. The home is lovingly cared for, and obviously cherished by the Owners. The location is private, yet close to restaurants, shopping, exploring and sightseeing for when you want to be entertained. Our stay was extremely comfortable, and very relaxing. We look forward to a time when we can return in the summer! Thank you for your amazing hospitality!
Terrific house, gorgeous views, wonderful owner!
All 10 members of our three generation family, plus our dog, had a perfect vacation at this property. Not only is the house immaculately clean and furnished with every amenity one could wish for but, in addition, the owners are outstanding. From the minute we rented the house, then received extensive info about things to do and places to go in the area, and, finally, arrived to find various goodies waiting for us, we felt as though we were guests in someone's home rather than renters. This vacation property is a real gem. As far as local food goes, don't miss Five Island Lobster and Gelato Fiasco.
