We have returned to this truly wonderful home away from home for the last three years. We will continue to enjoy its scenic setting beautiful ocean view surrounded

by Maine forest with sparsely placed country homes. It is convenient for short trips to nearby points of interest such as museums and gallery's with plenty of places to dine and partake of main specialties. The owner is warm and friendly and maintains his property with excellence and pride. We recommend this vacation rental without reservation.

Cozy, Comfortable Home w/ Great Views!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful find! This is a cozy and delightful property, with beautiful waterfront views from the living room and deck. The owner was gracious and welcoming. The home is spacious, comfortable, and very well equipped. Mom & I spent lots of time just sitting on the deck, but also enjoyed day trips to Owls Head, Camden, Rockland, Boothbay Harbor and Thomaston. This property is situated in a great location and made it easy to explore MidCoast Maine. I hope to re-book again in the future!

A Comfortabe Vacation Home in a Charming Setting

  • 4 of 5

I always have a lovely stay at this house. There are beautiful ocean views from its rooms and scenic deck.The view encompasses incredible sunrises along with kayaks, lobster boats, loons, osprey, eider ducks and an occasional glimpse of an eagle. This is a charming piece of heaven even on a cloudy day. The home is spacious, comfortable, and well appointed. It is convenient to Rockland, Thomaston, Camden, and Port Clyde. It's a great place to explore all the facets of Maine. But if you want to stay home enjoying the spacious deck and view, you'll be happy and have all the comforts you need. I look forward to returning to this delightful home this season and many more.
