The property overlooks the shore on a private acre surrounded by 16 acres of Town conservation property on its approach and a 2 acre neighborhood beach, dock, and boat mooring area waterside.

The first floor of the unit incudes a kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, gas range and views of the ocean. The spacious living room overlooks the lawn and water. A first floor master bedroom (queen bed) has its own bath and a connecting sunroom providing expansive views. Also included is a first floor laundry area and guest bath.

Really enjoyed my stay, but hope to be able to retrieve some of the money spent, because I

was the only one in the house, and it was very expensive.

Also, the shower head in the downstairs bath needs to be adjusted so that more water

comes out in softer sprays, not like needles.

Wonderful house in a great location!

The owner of the property, Linda, was on site and so fabulous! She was so very kind and let my son and his groomsmen take pictures. She was so kind that I can't say enough! Stay here!!!

Spacious and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and conveniently located to many Maine places to see. It is very spacious and created a great home base for 6 of us without feeling like we were on top of each other.

Beautiful home but bad experience

  • 1 of 5

The home is comfortable and in a very pleasant natural setting with views on the bay. We stayed over the christmas holiday and had a wonderful time. However, our security deposit was never returned. Furthermore, a couple of months after we left we were notified by the HomeAway insurance policy provider that the owner of the property filed a claim for over $1000 of damages to the property that were purportedly caused by us. This was followed a few weeks later by an additional claim against the insurance policy for other purported damages during our stay. We are very careful and in the many years of renting properties like this, we have never been accused of causing damages or denied return of our security deposit. We called the owner to talk but she did not seem interested in resolving the dispute.
