Quiet location with view of bay and outstanding dining options

  • 4 of 5

The house is roomy, great for larger groups, and nicely furnished with antiques. The kitchen was well supplied with utensils. Very clean, and quite comfortable overall. The sunroom/porch is a lovely place to relax and watch the sailing and fishing boats in the morning over breakfast.

I 295 can get log-jammed with traffic at peak times, but otherwise Portland is about an hour's drive away. Lots of great history (Portland Head Light, the Observatory) and scenery to see there. Likewise a drive north/east up the coast gets you to several gorgeous little towns and tons of history, like Bath (the Maine Maritime Museum is well worth the visit), Camden, Wiscasset, Rockport....

Superb dining within easy walking distance of the house: the 'Salt Cod' cafe is practically in your back yard and has excellent coffee and light fare. Look for the 'antique car' crowd there on sunny days! 'Cook's Lobster and Ale House' is across the water, and about 0.9 mile walk/drive; great food but little atmosphere compared to any other grill restaurant. Do NOT miss the chance to dine at 'Morse's Cribhouse Grill'.... absolutely superb food and service, always busy, but well worth the wait. It was so good we went twice and would go back again!

Overall we really enjoyed our time there and would recommend it.

Island charmer with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 7 year old son had a wonderful stay in this incredibly spacious cape for a week this summer. We had a great taste of that old Orrs Island charm in a location that can't be beat! If you want to feel like a local and enjoy the food and sights without having to waste time driving, this is the place. For a truly relaxing vacation I would return in a heartbeat❤️ Thank you Marilyn for providing all we needed and making our trip effortless!

Relaxing and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

The house was so comfortable. It had plenty of room for our family to sit together and enjoy the view of water and boats. You could sit on the enclosed porch and watched all day the boats: sail boats, ferry, lobster boats, kayaks, canoes, and motor boats going up and down the island. Or there were areas of the house you sit by yourself or visit one on one. You could walk every where to stores, along the beach, and on trails. It was convenient to purchase fresh sea food and prepare it yourself or walk to a restaurant. Our family really enjoyed it.
