About Laurie

I am the property manager for this property. Betsy is the property owner.

Why Laurie chose Orr's Island

This home has been in Betsy's family for years. Recently renovated, this family home is now available for weekly rentals and welcome to vacationers coming to Maine.

What makes this house unique

When you arrive at the Homestead, you will see old family photos throughout the house. This offers a bit of interesting family history. If you are looking for a welcoming property owner, Betsy is ready to offer her family history. She and her family can offer a view of Maine from a family living on Orr's Island for generations.

Loved the ability to spread out yet still homey

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Homestead. Betsy could not be more accommodating and was always available.

We had planned to have family visit through out our 2 week stay and as it always happens, we ended up having everyone there on the same day.

But it was not an issue as the house is large enough to accommodate everyone and with all the different areas - no one felt like they were intruding on anyone else.

The location is great - close enough to everything but away from the traffic.

So close to so many lobster docks that we had fresh lobster every night for dinner.

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again.

Thanks again and see you in a few years.

Perfect for our family

Plenty of space to spread out, but cozy enough to enjoy our family time together for dinner and games at night. Close to fun beaches and hikes.

This house is awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my stay on Orrs Island! I loved that it had every amenity I could need and clear instructions on how to use everything. Spacious and clean, everything in working order. Laurie was easily available to answer any questions I might have as well. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to stay on Orrs Island. Convenient to Bailey's Island as well as Brunswick and Bath. Slept like a baby in this comfortable home!
