Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Lighthouse so the whole family could stay together for our daughter's graduation from UNH. It was perfect for the whole family. The house was beautiful and we loved all of the little artistic details like the crown moldings, medallions, and the mantelpiece. We enjoyed the beautiful views, especially from the top of the lighthouse and from the dock across the street. We had meals together in the dining room and spent evenings chatting in the living room or watching TV.

The location is terrific. It is situated on Chauncey Creek and is a short drive from shops in York, the Kittery outlets, and the great restaurants in Portsmouth.

I do not recommend the house for anyone with toddlers because of the many stairs, but the elevator was a terrific help for Grandma and Grandpa, who have some mobility issues.

Ed and Rosie are excellent hosts and were very attentive to all our needs. Our arrival was delayed by several hours due to traffic on our drive to Maine, and they were very understanding and accommodating. We recommend their lovely home to anyone looking for a fun getaway.

Clean and spacious!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of seven stayed at the Lighthouse for four nights in November. I'm picky about cleanliness and this place is spotless! The only exception would be some spots on the light carpet (but it's probably from renters not following instructions!). The location is beautiful and quiet. Just beware if you are crossing the street! The house is on a curve and someone in our party was almost hit by a car! The driveway is on a steep hill and it's a little tricky also. We did a lot of cooking during our stay and found most of what we needed. I would suggest better knives. I brought to the owners attention a problem with the coffee maker and the need for food storage containers for leftovers. A few in our party suggested the need for more TV's (but it didn't bother me). There are a couple of areas in the home without furnishings. The house could sleep more, maybe on airbeds, if allowed. It was a pleasure dealing with Edward and we will return if we visit again with a large group!

Perfect New England property

  • 5 of 5

We settled into this wonderful home for the first week of October. The setting was pretty spectacular, surrounded by trees changing colors and overlooking beautiful Chauncey Creek. The Lobster Pier was within easy walking distance for the best lobster rolls we had on the whole trip. The house is even better than the pictures. Although it is large and roomy, it still felt cozy and was well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed, and more, bedrooms and bathrooms completely comfortable, and we poured over helpful books and pamphlets with local information left on the coffee table in the family room.

The location couldn't be better: history all around us in Portsmouth, NH and Portland, ME, and the lighthouses and trails along the Maine coast kept us busy every day. You don't even want to know about the factory outlets! We spent one rainy day there and could barely get our suitcases closed going home. We had to ship our purchases home from Stonewall Kitchen and are now stocked for months! We had exceptional meals in local restaurants, but also stayed in and cooked, simply to enjoy the house. The caretaker, Julianna, gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and really went above and beyond the call of duty when we called her (on her wedding day, no less!) to tell her we left a Kindle behind. She had it to us just a couple of days later. The whole experience was perfect and we cannot wait to go back--as soon as possible!

Loved the Lighthouse

  • 4 of 5

Seven "older adults" spent one week at this wonderful home. It was clean, well cared for and amply stocked with necessary paper products. Rosie and Ed provided excellent customer service throughout the entire reservation process. It's near lots of great places to explore ~ and to eat! We loved it.

Set the stage for a multi-generational reunion

  • 5 of 5

The "Lighthouse" set the stage for a wonderful week-long retreat for our multi-generational family! The house itself was very clean, airy and spacious. (It has light carpeting, on the upper floors, so be sure to take your shoes off!) Since our group included two grandparents in their 80's, the elevator let them easily get to the different levels. The youngest of the group loved looking out over Chauncey creek from the turret, and others congregated in the family room.

The house is across the road from a private dock on Chauncey creek, with easy access to the kayaks the Cardinalis provided (see the information about using them). We watched the tide charts, and kayaked out the bay to enjoy both early morning quiet and gorgeous sunsets from the water. The dock also has a table and chairs, so we could sit near the water.

Our family likes to cook, so we spent a lot of time making meals together and eating in the dining room.

Most days we went to the the local Kittery beach for a walk after dinner. Our favorite nearby place was Fort Foster, which has as it all - sandy beaches, rocky beaches, trails for bike riding and a play ground.

Edward and Rosie were responsive, welcoming, and very easy to work with. We would definitely recommend this house!

Owner's Response: Dear Alice Thank you for your kind review. We also wanted to let you know that we appreciated your great suggestion that to provide some additional indoor activities. Rosie immediately went out and acquired more games, books and puzzles and installed them in our family room. We hope to see you again in the future. Best regards, Ed and Rosie Cardinali

A wonderful home getaway for families!

  • 4 of 5

The Lighthouse home was a wonderful place to stay during our daughter's graduation. Close to UNH, the shops, etc. Our family of five was very comfortable in the home, a lot of space to spread out. The outside patio was a wonderful place for our family cook out.

The only thing I would recommend is the owner update kitchen cooking utensils, and more practical dinnerware, platters, and glass ware. Other than that, the home was meticulously maintained and I would highly recommend it for a family gathering.
