Beautiful house and property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for a family reunion with three generations. The house and view are stunning, and the house is much better equipped/stocked than any other VRBO we've rented. Clearly the owner is very thoughtful about the comfort and enjoyment of guests, and I would say the home and grounds are a step up from a typical vacation rental.

Overall, fantastic trip and many thanks to the owner for the hospitality.

One heads up: The kitchen and dining room are on the lowest floor (of three) and there is a short but steep slope from the lawn to the water. If someone in a group is a senior or isn't as steady on their feet, this could present some challenges or at least somewhat limit access to certain areas.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a great relaxing place to spend a week with our family! (7adults and3 children) This place surpassed our expectations! The kids loved playing on the rocks or wading , fishing or combing the beach for shells and sea creatures. The back porch was fabulous for morning coffee ,reading or just enjoying the view. We enjoyed the croquet set and buoy bat! Indoors has nice table areas for games all with amazing views. Kitchen is well furnished. My son-in-law is a chef so we mostly ate at the house. Enjoyed lots of good seafood! Beds and baths are great! Everything nice and clean! Manual at the house very informative! Thank you and we all hope to visit again!

Tranquil and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious home that easily accommodated our family of 5 adults and 3 kids. It was a great place to base out of for the various coastal towns we visited daily. However, we could have very easily lazed the day away and hung out at the house and been just fine. The backyard is great for games and hanging out, fishing off the rocks, or playing in the water. The views are amazing. Bring insect repellant because the state bird of Maine, the mosquito, is prolific in the area.

Beautiful site and home

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great home to rent. The house get 5 stars! The washing machine was fussy and seemed to not work well, and one downstairs bedroom was a bit stuffy. Be ready to use stairs since the hous is on 3 floors (as described). Beautiful wood work, clean and much nicer than the average rental. Worth 5 stars if the washer behaved better.

Lovely, quiet home on the water

  • 5 of 5

Five friends each had their own bedroom in this home with so many architectural details. We enjoyed sunrise and sunset at the waterfront while we watched the locals tend to their lobster pots. The home is located in a quiet community, but has access to all of the tourist spots along the coast of Maine. We thoroughly enjoyed this location, and would recommend this home to others.
