Plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

This house has hidden rooms everywhere, easily enough room for two families. It was clean and had every amenity. The owner recently updated the interior. Nice location, close to everything. Very happy with our stay in this house.

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!

Great house for large group. Plenty of space for separate or group activities. Close to all kinds of activities. We had a fabulous time and hope to make this a yearly trip.

Great place for our two families

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room and great natural lighting in The Homestead. Our two families [5 adults, 4 kids] had a great time here, and never felt cramped or like we had no space to do anything. The smaller room near the kitchen was great for the kids to play at the table, and the family room upstairs was a huge hit with the kids too. The kitchen is fantastic, from the counter tops and great space, to the stove and sink and every kind of dish and utensil you could need. Loved the kitchen. Dining room easily sat all of us, for the days we cooked out and had a big dinner at the house, and there was never a need for fighting over bathrooms or showers. Hot water lasted right through the fifth shower each morning - no complaints there!

The only things that keep me from rating this 5 stars is the matresses, which were really firm [perhaps that just a matter of my own taste], and the little 2-3" 'step' that connected most of the rooms on the first floor. We kept tripping over them, and the kids fell over them a few times, until we finally remembered to step up, or down, as needed to pass into the next room. But really - overall - such a great house, and the other 8 people that stayed there with me completely agree on this assessment. :)

Thanks Betsy & Laurie!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house. It was very clean and a perfect size for our two families. In a nice location out on Orr's Island. Takes a bit to drive into town but most houses on the islands do. We would stay there again.
